When I first started watching this series, I originally thought, “Oh, it's just another anime with cool guys and girls using superpowers and flying around like Superman-wannabees.”. Of course, that was before I watched its parent story, Zettai Karen Children. But more so, it was before I fully embraced the spinoff known as Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke. This new piece of work that Manglobe is presenting here could be defined as their latest line in their evolution of supernatural phenomenon. In fact, Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited takes supernatural with a world of super powers and transforms it into profound read more

I waited until the end of the series to write my review, and all I have to say: This is one of the most underrated and also best animes of this year. Yes, I know that it's only winter season, but I don't care, I am going to steadfastly stand by that declaration. I have been watching anime for quite some years now, and I've seen some really good ones and some really bad ones. I've seen some that touch my heart and some that make me cringe. However, I have never had one that has consistently from beginning to end, roped me in and read more

Why is know one watching this show? Literally not one person i know has even considered it.

I've not watched much of the original Zettai Karen Children, the age of the cast, and tone of the show, suggested i wasn't going to get remotely near 50+ episode interest levels.

But both short comings are now gone, the show is an appealing 12 episodes, the original cast are all several years older and supporting characters, with a significantly older cast put in place, and the tone seems far more serious. Think the difference between Fate Zero and Fate/Stay Night.

Any prior knowledge of the franchise seems completely read more

This anime is 12 episodes long. It's fast paced with lots of action scenes, sarcastic moments, sad moments, pretty much everything. When i first saw the first episode i knew i was going to enjoy this anime. It has that compassion side towards it, where not many action anime's have it so early into the anime.

Story 9/10

I've rated the story 9/10 because for starters, it's 12 episodes long. It's fast paced which i like especially for a short series. The plot makes sense, and the pace is very smooth.

Art 10/10

The art you see in this anime may remind you of the newer animes, like read more

Anime: Toaru Majutsu no Index
One of the main things that makes them similar is a whole super power thing.
In both series we have a girl who can teleportate and a guy who can nullify any of those attacks.

Anime: Jormungand
Villainous main character who is the mastermind of a group of dangerous individuals.

Both Koko and Hyoubu always have a sinister look about them.

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
the moment I saw Hyobu, he fitted right into the league of extremely evil bishounen Lelouch and Raitou.
and he got his very own Suzaku too!
confident, arrogant and style. is he really the good guy?
a feeling of excitement and terror. supernatural eye powers. rebels. Both Geass and this brand new ESP series have it all!

Anime: Code:Breaker
In both series, there's the theme of superpower in a world that has both criminals and those who stops them. The main protagonist from both series carries out tasks with their group in such a world.

Both series' main protagonist are cold, powerful, independent, and sometimes sarcastic.

Both series features action, drama, some comedy, and has a mysterious like background surrounding the show especially in regards to the powers used by various characters.

Anime: K

Both involves guys with special powers.

Both involves guys with special powers who dukes out with other guys with special powers.


One anime is set in a world where the is ruled by kings, while the other anime is set in a world where espers are discriminated.

Anime: Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha
The existence of espers and beings with supernatural abilities are prominent in both of these series. In fact, some of these individuals are considered dangerous to society.

The main character in both series have similar personalities in being calculating, independent, and often does things on his own. He does have a partner though who aids him with various goals.

Both series has action, drama, and a mysterious background to them. In addition, they have a similar mood to them involving organizations.
