The last couple of years have spawned some anime series that ditched the usual 20-minute episode format in favor of longer episodes. ‘Break Blade’, ‘Kara no Kyokai’ and ‘Katanagatari’ all released new installments that were (at least) double the length of a typical anime episode up to and including feature length films. Upsides to this approach are that the production values tend to be much higher and that the longer format allows for more deliberate pacing. The downside is that viewers who follow these series end up waiting a long time between the release of new installments.

People with suddenly awakening superhuman powers? Check. A shadowy organization, run by a circular table of cryptic old men, that hunts these newly awakened superhumans? Check. A small alliance of superhumans hiding in plain sight, fighting against persecution by rescuing the awakened ones before they're caught, lead by an experienced veteran (named Quon) with a colorful past? Check, check, check. To be blunt, there's hardly an ounce of originality in the entire series of Towa no Quon films. It whips out numerous ideas from past tales of heroes and villains, and doesn't even have the decency to arrange them in a unique manner. It's worth read more

--------------------------Review contains minor spoilers---------------------------------------------------

Plot- In a futuristic Tokyo, unique human beings who have awakened distinct powers are being hunted by a secret organization named Custos. Known as "Attractors", these exceptional humans are joining forces to defend themselves. They are led by a boy named Quon, an idealist who is determined to save all the Attractors he can.

- This series is more like Japanese X-men version. Almost everything seems similar, mutants hiding in a special place getting trained and educated, how to control their powers etc. Quon is the main character or you can say Professor x of the series, he is determined to save all read more

First of all i would like to say i am not that fond of action animes,i am more like the peaceful type.So when i first saw this i wasn't that interested but it took only the first movie to change my mind.
I am writing this review based on the whole series.
Story(10): i don't like to give 10 to any anime because that would be too disrespectful to the masterpieces.I had no choice cause the plot is not that much but unique nonetheless.On the light this is a story about two sides fighting for their own ideals.In one sides the attractors who has awakened supernatural powers read more

Both main characters are near indestructible and trying to protect others like themslves from the normal humans who fear and hunt them.

Anime: Terra e...
The story are quite similar in some way that both are describing some people having special abilities or power and normal people are hunting them. Quon is just looked like Soldier Blue, both have super power and both are acting as leader. Both of them are trying to save their same race and do not mind to be hurt.

Anime: Blassreiter
Both have a main character who has a special power that has them transform into a super powered humanoid being. Both main characters focus on saving those with special powers like their own.

Anime: Casshern Sins
Quon and Casshern are both "indestructible" main characters atoning for tragic pasts.  
reportRecommended by MidorimaKazunari
Anime: Zetman
The main characters both have supernatural powers that they use to save people. The humanoid creatures in Towa no Quon and Zetman look quite similar. Both stories have dark themes, action and violence.
