In the 21st century, people with psychic powers (espers), have become fairly common, and the BABEL is the branch of the Japanese government responsible for esper affairs. Japan's 3 most powerful espers are a trio of 10-year old girls, the Children. Hilarity ensues, along with a very awesome plot.

Amidst it all, trying to stop a 100% likely apocalyptic future, is a mentally-gifted but otherwise normal 20-year-old, Minamoto Kouichi. And seriously, if anyone deserves his perfect harem ending as a replacement for that bad future, it is this man. Literally his entire life is lived for the sake of helping his charges, read more

Every now and then, you find one of these type of mangas , that not only surpasses your expectations , it continues to improve as as the story continues.

To be honest , when i first started this series , I wasn't expecting too much , the name it self (embarrassed to made the same mistake with change 123) didn't lend to anything too exciting and story seemed pretty generic as well.

Both series center around high leveled esper girls. While Mikoto is one of Academy City's seven Level 5's, The Children are the only Level 7's in Japan. The Children start off as 10-year-olds but eventually become middle school students like Mikoto and friends. ZKC can be more lighthearted than Railgun, especially in the beginning, but it has its serious, dramatic moments as well. Esper cloning has also been recently introduced into ZKC's story.
Both pair a guy with one (or more) lolis with supernatural abilities in order to deal with sci-fi crimes, in ZKC it's terrorism by espers and in BB it's alien invasion.
