Synopsis

Helen ESP is from the controversial author of Franken Fran and retains much of the same dark style, but takes a much brighter look on life and death thanks to the cheerfulness of the main character. In Helen ESP, we follow Takahara Helen, who lost her sight, hearing and speech in a terrible car accident. Now she lives with her Uncle and a helper dog named Victor... and she's awakening to her own gift.

There are great works of literature on disability. Rather than focusing only on the helplessness of disabled individuals, they turn into affirmations of life. These works serve as important reminders that it is doing what you can that counts, not lamenting what you can’t do.

Helen ESP, on the other hand, takes ignoring one’s disabilities so literally that it is difficult to say the main character is really handicapped. The title character, Helen, is a blind-deaf-mute ripoff of Helen Keller who uses ESP to sense her surroundings and telepathically hold long conversations with her guide dog about subjects as diverse as spirituality, the human condition, and read more

I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed reading this manga.

Made by Kigitsu Katsuhisa, the person who made Franken Fran, you know it will at the very least be interesting.

Here, I will tell you in 3 questions to see if you will like this.

Do you know who Helen Keller is?
Do you know what esp is?
Do you think the two combined could be interesting (keep Kigitsu Katsuhisa in mind)?

If you said yes to all 3, you will enjoy this manga. It's highly episodic, which is both a good and bad thing. It makes the story seem longer, and doesn't dwell on things to long, read more

Same mangaka; if you liked one, then you'll probably like the other. Plot-wise, they're significantly different but they have the same kind of feeling to it. Franken Fran is more mature and contains a lot of gore, whereas Helen ESP is more lighthearted.

Both follow the protagonist as they lead their everyday life, yet at the same time because of an incredible power they possess they walk along the border between the natural and the supernatural world and come in contact with both worlds in a slice-of-life setting.
