Toaru Majutsu no Index Wiki

Freshman (一年 Ichi-Nen?) is the 131st chapter of the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga series, released on February 26th 2021 in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh.


One hot May morning, a first-year Misaka Mikoto has an encounter with a certain vending machine and ended up losing 10,000 yen when her bill was eaten by it. A passing girl from Tokiwadai with a standout hairstyle helped her get a can from the machine by hitting it with a roundhouse kick and accompanies her to school. During swimming class, Mikoto finds out from classmate Kessai Kiyoshi that the girl who helped her earlier is Shin'enkouji Rurikakesu, a free-spirited girl who is being scouted by the three major cliques in Tokiwadai, led by Sha Danshan, Mikagami Nagisa, and Hasekura Reiri respectively.

While holding on to a moon accessory left behind by Kiyoshi, Mikoto encounters three students who, like in rumors about her, belittles her achievement of being one of the two Level 5s in Tokiwadai. Although managing to startle her detractors, Mikoto understands the possibility that Level 5s might be hard to handle.
