A series of specials included on the DVD/BluRay release disks of the Railgun series, composed partially of recycled footage with new material paired with an off-the-wall script. Each 'chapter' is broken up into a number of short vignettes. (Description for episodes 1+2; images from episode 1)
  • Special Episode 1 (8 min, released January 2010): More Complete Railgun
  • Special Episode 2 (10 min, released June 2010): More Complete Railgun II
  • Special Episode 13' (5 min, released July 2010): Being a Photo Shoot Model Under the Blazing Sun Isn't Easy, Is It?
The third special (considered additional footage for the bathing suits model episode 13 of the series) actually has a 'story': Kuroko brought along a special sun-tan with aphrodisiac - and from there some things go very wrong...

Insider jokes, puns and wordplays, plus myriads of references to other media (movies, games, commercials... - the subber had to know a lot to make all these connections); many of these are repeated several times as if to hammer the gag into the audience's head. Great music though, supporting several scenes very well. A mere one-time watch for fans of the series, completely useless for others. The swim suits special made me upgrade my ratings despite being focused on Kuroko lusting for her onee-sama.

Well it's there. I found some funny and some completely baffling.

It's an extra so I can't complain.

A special fan-treat included in the DVD/BlueRay releases.

Much like the To Aru Majutsu no Index-tan specials, there is mention of the Shana series and there even appears to be a reference to Toradora!. Otherwise - this is all about skirt-flipping and teacher parties - a little peek at some of the behind the scenes goings on.

A fun treat, but nothing to write home about.
