"July 17, Part 2" (七月十七日② Shichi-gatsu Jū-nana-nichi ②?) is the 3rd chapter of the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga series. It was first released on July  27th, 2007.


Surrounding Misaka Mikoto were some delinquents. Apparently they came there to hit on her. As Misaka Mikoto stands there she realizes how cold-hearted people are. Meanwhile, a boy comes and tries to get her out of the mess by using the "fetching up a lost friend" strategy. Obviously Mikoto knows that, but being the tsundere that she is she didn't want to go through all the "trouble. The delinquents noticed and asked him what's he trying to do. He replies saying that it makes him sick seeing a bunch of guys circling around a defenseless girl. Mikoto gets angry from all his insults and shocks everyone except she fails to shock the boy. She starts asking questions to him about how her electricity got blocked from him. He explains that he's a level zero and then runs off.

Back to the present, Mikoto finally catches the mysterious boy at an atm machine. Mikoto gets angry when he starts ignoring her and shocks the atm machine. Fortunately the unfortunate boy's card comes out and he thanks Mikoto. But Mikoto's shock seems to have activated the camera and it quickly snaps the boy's face before he runs away with Mikoto.

The two of reappear at an empty field at night. Mikoto wants to fight with the boy, but he points out that everytime they fight Mikoto loses. Mikoto corrects him in saying that since he hasn't damaged her once she hasn't lost yet. The boy then asks how do they determine out the winner and Mikoto replies, arrogantly, that it is untill she has won. The boy agrees to fight her and the battle starts out with Mikoto shocking him head on. This shock gets blocked by the boy's right hand. Mikoto then utilizes the iron sand by making a sword and then later a whip. She figures out that this method doesn't work either so she creates a distraction with the iron sand for him while she directly forces the electricity into him. Mikoto sees that there is no change, whch means that her electricity didn't work. The boy then fakes that he got hurt. Mikoto gets angry and tries to shock him multiple times since he is not taking the fight seriously.

Mikoto comes home in her Tokiwadai dorm were Kuroko greets her. Kuroko suspects that the boy and Mikoto might turn out to be trouble. In her point of view anyway.
