About A Certain Scientific Accelerator (via Funimation):

After rescuing Last Order and subsequently taking a bullet to the head, Academy City’s top-ranked esper rests in the hospital. But Accelerator’s recovery is cut short when a mysterious girl carrying a photo of his little clone companion asks for help. Now they’re taking on Disciplinary Action—an anti-evil coalition whose sinister plans threaten Last Order, Academy City, and even the entire world!

Funimation has the first three seasons of A Certain Magical Index as well as the first two seasons of A Certain Scientific Railgun available for streaming on their services for United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland. A Certain Magical Index III is also available for streaming on Crunchyroll. The third season of A Certain Scientific Railgun is currently scheduled for a 2019 release window.
