Synopsis

Academy City is a highly developed place in terms of technology. It is said to be 20 to 30 years ahead of the rest of the world. Eighty percent of its 2.3 million residents are students. The focus of studies here is directed towards esper powers. Misaka Mikoto, one of the top level espers in town, shares a room with Kuroko Shirai, another high level esper who is a member of Judgement, a law enforcing agency composed of students. Both attend to Tokiwadai, a private school reserved for the high-leveled and the rich. Kuroko's partner at Judgement, Kazari Uiharu, is a low level esper who studies at Sakugawa middle school. Her best friend and classmate there is Ruiko Saten, a level zero (no esper powers). Together, the four encounter several adventures in the exciting scientific town.

Are the burdens of being special greater or lesser than the burdens of being ordinary?

Academy City is a city that thrives on those who are espers -- who are special -- whether they already have powers or are trying to attain them. Everyone is reaching towards their ideal self, but some people don’t care what methods get used. The pursuit of the “next level” is absolute. If our limitations only exist so we can surpass them, should there be a limit to how far we can go to get there?

I thought i'd write a review for the guys out there that have watched the parent story Index.

I was 100% sure i would never watch this, it looked like a little girls show, and I wasn't wrong. I was pretty bummed there was no news for a third season of Index, so I thought I'd give this a go and test the waters.

If you liked Index, you're almost sure to like this. I got caught up in the clean lines and perfect pacing all too quickly. Something about this anime series speaks to me, and just like Index, a show I also read more

Recommendations

Fighting tsundere heroine with quite same character. Comedy, mostly girls on main roles and quite pacifistic but overprotective protagonist
Mystery/action shows about super-powered individuals. Both protagonists have electric powers.
