Telepathy Shoujo Ran is a series that had intrigued me for a while but I had always made excuses not to start it. Because of my interest in it, I did come in with a certain level of expectation and while it certainly is on a whole a pretty solid show the ride was a bit uneven.

The overall story in Telepathy is both the best and worst part of the series. While there really isn’t an overriding plot, the general theme is pretty interesting and in many ways unique from most anime of this kind. The story centers on Ran, a seemingly read more

Jinkies! I have to admit that I was rather surprised by Telepathy Shoujo Ran, as I expected something along the lines of Mokke or Mushishi, and instead I was immersed in a supernatural anime version of Scooby Doo (minus the annoying dog - thankfully!).

Telepathy Shoujo Ran started life as a series of light novels by Asano Atsuko that were collectively entitled Telepath Shoujo Ran Jiken Note (or Telepthathy Girl Ran Incident Notes). The series was popular enough for a manga adaptation to be made by Ida Toshitsugu which were serialized in Shounen Sirius magazine. The manga was well received by audiences, which encouraged the read more

This is an entirely watchable anime. That's why I'm watching it. My enthusiasm is fading slightly as the show goes on.

The cute heroine looks like the heroine of Ghost Hunt, and she's psychic, and she goes on adventures not unlike the adventures from Ghost Hunt.

Mostly the show reminds me that I would have liked Ghost Hunt more if it had featured more psionic stuff.

Obviously, the show includes telepathy. Additionally it has some unrealistic telekinesis, ghosts, some non-human spirits, etc. The paranormal elements seem more realistic than some of the plot contrivances.

I love the characters. That doesn't mean they're very read more

Many people have overlooked or dismissed this anime. At first glance it seems rather bland. It's pleasant and cute. It has no sex to speak of. There's nothing most people would find offensive about it, even for their children to watch. In fact, what it is, is the perfect anime for young girls before they are ready for young adult material, but after they are children. I'm no expert in defining what age watches or reads what these days, so I am not going to give specific ages. The basis of my opinion is that it has read more

Anime: Kotoura-san
both main character can read minds, both suffering

Anime: Ghost Hunt
Both animes revolve around mystery, paranormal activity and telepathy. In addition, the protagonist, Ran, looks alot like Mai in Ghost Hunt. I'm sure if you liked Ghost Hunt, you'll enjoy TSR as well :)

Anime: Kamichu!
Both heroines have powers and the show is about them going around with their friends solving little cases.

Anime: Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora
Both shows deal with young people who possess powers of one sort or another, and both are generally episodic in nature, although Natsu no Sora's overall story is more compact because it runs for fewer episodes.

They're both fairly lighthearted on the whole, and although Natsu no Sora is the better show, Telepathy Shoujo Ran comes a close second.
