A Certain Scientific Railgun by Kazuma Kamachi


A Certain Scientific Railgun by Kazuma Kamachi

Welcome to a world where mysticism and science collide, and supernatural powers are derived from either science or religion. At the heart of this world is Academy City, an advanced metropolis whose population is comprised mostly of students. The majority of students are enrolled in the city's 'Power Curriculum Program,' where they must learn to master their latent psychic powers. Out of several million students, only seven are deemed powerful enough to have Level 5 status. Meet Mikoto Misaka, the third most powerful Level 5 esper in Academy City. Together with her best friend Kuroko Shirai and the other members of Judgment, a student-run law enforcement agency, Mikoto delves deep into the dark heart of the scientific sprawl she calls home and uncovers secrets she wishes she hadn't! A Certain Scientific Railgun is a must-have manga series for fans of stories that blend science and magic like Psychic Academy and Full Metal Alchemist.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
