Toaru Kagaku no Railgun Synopsis

Student-occupied Academy City is at the forefront of scientific advancement and is home to the aspen development program. The seven "Level 5" Espers are the most powerful in Academy City, and the third among them is Mikoto Misaka, an electricity manipulator called "The Railgun"..

When strange incidents occur across town, he discovers that every crime is linked to the "Level Upper," a legendary device that is said to increase its user's level of aspen. As the situation escalates, it becomes clear that there is more to the upper level than meets the eye and that Academy City can be a much more twisted place than the glamorous utopia it appears to be.
