Synopsis

Rinka Urushiba works part time as a waitress to help out her unemployed father. By all accounts, her life in Tokyo is a relatively normal one—but her sense of normalcy begins to fade when she inexplicably sees a flying penguin one day. Chasing it all the way to the top of a building, she encounters more surprises, including flying goldfish and another person—a classmate named Kyoutarou Azuma—who can also see these strange things. After Rinka passes out when a goldfish phases through her, she wakes up an esper with the ability to phase her body through solid matter.

However, her newfound ability is not the only strange thing about her: when she uses her powers, her hair turns white. Deciding reluctantly to use this new gift to help the city, she becomes Tokyo's new hero, dubbed the "White Girl." Along with Kyoutarou, who gained the power of teleportation, Rinka begins righting the wrongs in the city while fighting other espers who have much less noble intentions.

Rather than an actual review, this will consist of a list of warnings for those interested in seeing this. So, let's begin:

-If you feel that good animation is necessary to enjoy an anime, you probably shouldn't watch this.
-If you like anime to take its time and not suddenly rush things, you probably shouldn't watch this.
-If you don't like weird things that don't really get explained (ie. flying penguins, flying glowing fishes...), you probably shouldn't watch this.
-If you like characters that can stand on their own thanks to a good charcterization, you probably shouldn't watch this.
-If you hate it when characters suddenly become stronger/weaker for plot read more

Tokyo ESP. A show about people with a variety of superpowers duking it out against each other. How can you go wrong with that?

Story: 3/10

Frankly, the story of ESP is a jumbled mess. The first episode sets the stage well. It introduces the world and the conflict between factions, and leaves the story open to development. Super powered beings called Espers have rebelled and taken Tokyo hostage. People are panicking. Everything is going wrong. And then the protagonist appears to save the day. The first episode left me keen for more. I was exited to see where the plot would go.

And then, it pulled a read more

In a world full of crime, there is an anime that has potential to became awesome using superpowers, however, it turned out to be a mess. That anime is Tokyo ESP. Tokyo ESP is produced by Xebec.
