Synopsis

It is said that 70% of the human brain capacity is unused. If humans possess incredible power, it is strongly believed to be lying dormant within this region. This unused 70% brain capacity is known as "Night Head".

The famous work 'NIGHT HEAD' is going to break the silence. They were abandoned by their parents because of the psychic power they possessed. They are the Kirihara brothers, who lived in a laboratory within a barrier-protected forest. They have escaped from the laboratory, and a new wave of 'Revolution' is about to arise.

A new "Night Head" is about to be awakened.

Night Head Genesis is a show about people with psychic powers and the origin of that energy. It start with the story of the two brothers and their own problems being accepted in society due to their psychic power, evolves into a story about fighting to save the world from a supposed cataclysm and this unveils an elaborate plot about the world, nature, the growing psychic energy and its two sides, the good and the evil.
The theory is well explained and based on common scientific knowledge with a spiritual touch, the energy of all living things, animal, plants and humans is evolving and granting read more

Though receiving mixed reviews I found Night Head Genesis well paced and evolving. With new darker pot twists introduced with every episode.

Story: The story is slow paced and holds a dark overtone. It is the tale of two brothers cursed with psychic, telepathic and empathic which horrify there parents to the point that as children they are sent to a research facility far off in the woods with a powerful barrier keeping them confined within. The story starts when they are adults, escaping from the facility and trying to integrate back into everyday society. However the world is a dark place and they find out read more

The setting for "Night Head Genesis" was good, and it began brilliantly, but the problem I saw in most of the episodes was that the plot didn't feel steady enough; perhaps it was meant to make the viewer ponder about what just happened, and what motivated a certain action or result, but to me it felt like they randomly grabbed things from here and there and ended with a conclusion that seemed a little odd and out there. In short, the plot wasn't as straightforward as I would have liked. "Plot holes" was what came to mind, because the flow just didn't feel consistent enough.

After reading some reviews and lacking anything else to watch, I gave this series a go. Paranormal, sci-fi, two brothers - components for a decent anime. At the end though, this is one of those series that makes you want to take a screw driver to your eyes and ears.

The sound is fantastic. It brings back memories of watching X-Files, and the people responsible for the score really hit this one on the head.

The story is about standard anime fare - two protagonists which are brothers, gifted with extraordinary abilities, are prophesied to be either the destruction of the world or the rebirth of a read more
