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!

I really didn't know what to think about the first episode from Zettai Karen Children and kinda dropped it, but a nice bearded guy from YouTube recommended this show next to Hayate No Gotoku and Excel Saga.

So what is this anime about ? Imagine a world where some humans gain special abilities. They are called Esper. Some people regard them as the next step of human evolution, while other people think they are just a disgrace to mankind and will destroy the world as we know them. This is where the organization Babel steps in. It is Babel's intention to create a world where ordinary read more

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

Both of these hyper comedy series were produced almost by a lot of same staff. Notice the similar format in on-screen advisory, commercial phrases, lyrics mark-up, etc.
