"Tokyo Underground" is your typical mindless superpower action flick. A boy skilled at fighting encounters a mysterious girl one fine day. One thing leads to another; he soon discovers his inner superpowers, and ends up trying to protect the girl from the army of bad guys who wants her for their own evil purposes. Sounds pretty generic right? There can't possibly be much originality in this show, right? Right. There really isn't anything special going on here.

The animation and action are bog standard, with everyone's superpower being elemental in nature; there's nothing that's not been seen many times before. Likewise, the sound and the voice ...

- Personally I wanted this anime to have took place on the surface instead of Underground. I find that the whole Underground Idea was surprising at first because I thought it would actually look like another world but it was pretty lame mostly because of the walls and such.

While this show put the elemental motif's usage to its full potential, that's where everything that's good about this show stopped for me.

I've never disliked an action anime before that accurately satisfies all the criteria and things I loved about anime until I watched this show.

Everything in this show is just standard generic drivel.

You have a generic male lead, who's still in K-12 school, meets a girl, discovers his inner abilities, female lead gets captured, guy goes to save him.

But what makes that dislikeable is that the male lead saving the female lead ...
