Synopsis

They're cute, adorable and three of the most powerful Espers the world has ever seen: Kaoru, the brash psychokinetic who can move objects with her mind; Shiho, the sarcastic and dark natured psychometric able to pick thoughts from people's minds and read the pasts of inanimate objects like a book; and Aoi, the most collected and rational of the three, who has the ability to teleport herself and the others at will. So what to do with these potential psychic monsters in the making? Enter B.A.B.E.L., the Base of Backing ESP Laboratory, where hopefully "The Children" and others like them can become part of the answer to an increasing wave of psychic evolution. It's a win-win solution... Unless you're Koichi Minamoto, the overworked young man stuck with the unenviable task of field commanding a team of three pre-teen girls!

Mostly it appeals to many loli fans and who like magic or esper or any kind of thing. The plot is okay just needs to be a little bit remodeled overall it is pretty good to watch. The humor spent on this anime is actually very entertaining mostly goes with the whole faction of it being loli and appealing to grown ups.

The action is pretty okay though not so hardcore that drags up to like two episodes like other animes, but yet its a quick and straight to the point anime. It actually has a solid plot and well so far it is developing read more

A fairly enjoyable series which has either been watered down too much, or not enough.


Overall - 6/10

From the Animesuki thread, I read that the manga is more hardcore with blood and depth in comparison with the anime. While I have not read the source material, I can already sense in the anime that things have been watered down to an extent. This has all to do with the series airing at 10am on a Sunday. I feel things are still too hardcore (i.e. targeted at Japanese Otakus) with the constant perv/service/loli references, to be suitable for kids.

On the other hand, the general read more

Before you start citing my review as "Not Helpful", read what it says in the asterisks. Thanks.

**Review Edited as of Episode 9**

Well, it's odd i haven't seen a review of Zettai Karen Children yet. Well anyways..

Story: - 8.2/10 (B-)
The story is about a trio of girls who have superpowers and save the world. Before you start accusing it of being like the Powerpuff Girls, i just gotta say this: The way they made it, it makes more sense than PPG. The first episode was hilarious, with Okami Muscle (Gay Muscle..? lol) just made me laugh in a good way. And Kaoru, man oh man she's read more

Currently this will be the 1st draft of this review. (I will make a better one after my Exam)

[Even though I gave it low grade, it comes from how hard I grade it and maybe it'll be bump up 1-2 points if graded by others]

To say it simple for simple understanding for simple people: Magical Girl

This show was really based on magical girls who were called ESPer instead and the main character of this show are the three Level 7 (highest level) children esper who luckily found someone who accepted them.

Story: (7/10)
I must say Zettai Karen Children really gives me high expectation at first sight. read more
