{WW} Badass Women of Anime: Mikoto

Hey Vingle Nakama!

I feel like it's been ages since I updated my Badass Women of Anime collection, so I'm remedying that this Waifu Wednesday! Today I want to talk about a huge power in a small package, the awesome and inspiring Mikoto Misaka from the anime "A Certain Scientific Railgun".
Mikoto Misaka is the main protagonist of the anime "A Certain Scientific Railgun" which takes place in the same universe as "A Certain Magical Index", where Mikoto is also a main character. She's a 14 year old citien of Academy City, and the third-ranked level 5 esper, meaning that she is very highly ranked, and considered among the most powerful espers in Academy city.
She is an Electromaster: an esper with an almost complete control of electrical and electromagnetic energies. Mikoto is called the 'Railgun' because of her signature ability, though friends call her 'Bug Zapper' in the English dub. Using electromagnetism and properties of physics, Mikoto can shoot projectiles at devastating speeds, with incredible power. According to the anime's wiki, "Misaka Mikoto's typical railgun has a muzzle velocity of 1030 m/s (2307.2 mph) and can be fired at a rate of 8 shots per minute. Her railgun is extremely accurate, only having a target deviation of 18.9 mm. She primarily uses arcade coins as her projectiles for portability, limiting her normal range to 50 meters."
Despite this, she is still very much a teenager, and still handles her teenage issues, though there is some absurd levels of crazy shit happening in Academy City.
You'd better make sure not to ever be on the receiving end of her railgun. That's for sure.
