"A Certain Student's Epilogue" (とある学徒の後日談集 (エピローグ) Toaru Gakuto no Epirōgu?) is a special chapter after Chapter 16 of the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga series.


After recovering from the affects of the 'Level Upper', the baseballer whose memory appeared during the fight with the AIM Burst no longer despises those who use Esper powers in baseball games (although legal, he can't use them). He finds his friends discussing strategies as to how to defeat the Espers in baseball; As a result, he regains his hope and love for baseball.

During an examination, the woman who was manipulated by her friend displays a higher control of her Esper abilities and offers to teach her friend. Her friend tells her that if she does that, she will surpass her again; the woman replies that it won't happen as easily because now she realizes that she will have to work harder - now that she recognizes her friend as a rival. She tells her friend that they will "Grow stronger together", causing her friend to blush.

Hatsuya walks past the people he always lectures (About never giving up) and this time ignore them, telling them that he was cheered up. He recalls feeling the power of Mikoto's railgun flowing throughout him and inspired by that power, wills himself to try harder to become a level 5. A person, reluctantly 'inspired' gets up and tells the other person to go back to school.
