The twenty-first chapter of the Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator manga was released on November 27, 2015.
Accelerator successfully lures Qion Qi and Taotie, though he wants to catch up to Hundun first. As he does so, Taotie tries to fire a missile at Accelerator but he successfully evades it. He tries to attack Hundun first but it surprises him as Taotie uses a material type teleportation to swap places with the missile that missed him just before he was able to touch Hundun. The missile explodes in Accelerator's face but he survives.
Meanwhile, Hundun has begun making use of Misaka 10046, and data is being transferred to Hishigata as the battle continues. He is however interrupted by DA, still battling against the forces of Academy City in Seiin High School after Nakimoto Rizou ordered their elimination. Requesting the "decisive weapons" Hishigata promised, but he ignores them and cuts off their communications with him. Taotie then fires multiple missiles, all of which are somehow teleported and connect together in front of Accelerator. Moreover, Taotie appears before him, and with its arsenal, begins firing at Accelerator while the missiles shoot toward him. But it doesn't work because of Accelerator's power, Redirection, and it is this power that destroys Taotie.
Hishigata is flabbergasted, still somehow unaware how Accelerator's powers work, and concludes that it must be automatic. Here, Accelerator realizes he doesn't have time, and leaves, much to Hishigata's chagrin as he wants to fight with Accelerator more. He is, however, scolded by Hirumi, reminding that they should move on to the next stage so that they can fulfill their greatest desire. On the screen, the transfer of data regarding Misaka 10046 is continuing, and Hirumi grins.
Meanwhile, Aiho finally wakes up after the battle, laid down on the ground with the rest of her colleagues, being treated by Anti-Skill. One of the workers tell her that someone already did first-aid, and that they only showed up because someone reported what had happened. Meanwhile, Esther and Hasami are watching close-by, with Hasami wearing Aiho's Anti-Skill uniform. Esther tells Hasami that they are the only ones who can stop Hirumi, and the two girls once again enter the battlefield.
