Synopsis

Rinka Urushiba is an ordinary, if poor, high school student. With her father no longer employed, she spends every day working to save money so that they can both keep living in their small apartment.

That all changes one day when Rinka sees a flying penguin and chases it to the top of the New Tokyo Tower—where she is confronted by a glowing fish swimming through the sky, who grants her the power to phase through solid objects, turning her hair as white as snow in the process. The only problem is that she isn't the only one to gain superpowers, and Tokyo quickly finds itself in dire need of heroes.

Tokyo ESP follows Rinka's struggles as she inadvertently becomes the heroine known to the public as the "White Girl" for her hair and powers. Working alongside Kyoutarou Azuma, a classmate with the power of teleportation, she'll deal with the growing threat of those that would abuse their own powers. But will she and her sense of justice be able to survive as the stakes grow higher, and the foes they face grow stronger?

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.
