A Certain Scientific Railgun Anime Season 4


A Certain Scientific Railgun is an anime based on the eponymous manga. History introduces us to the girl Mikoto Misaka, who lives in a world where there is no clear boundary between magic and science.

Academy City with a population of a couple of million inhabitants is completely different from the usual settlement. People with superpowers, called espers, live in it. And here only a few people have Level 5.

Release date for Season 4 of the anime “A Certain Scientific Railgun”

Recall previous seasons of the anime:
– Some Scientific Railgun (October 2009);
– Some scientific Railgun S (April 2013);
– Some scientific Railgun T (January 2020).

Now let’s analyze the situation. Between seasons 1 and 2, 3.5 years passed. Then there was a long break of almost 7 years, when the audience again saw their favorite characters. Will the director please us with new episodes? If so, when will it be? No official data yet. But a high rating, excellent reviews of fans and critics may well have a positive effect on the decision of the leadership about the fate of the project.

As soon as information about the new season appears, we will gladly post it on our website.

We hope that we do not have to wait again for 3.5 or 7 years…
