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.

Tokyo ESP is the typical anime sci-fi, super powers, Shounen and a bit of comedy, but not because it has the typical stereotypes of anime makes it bad, quite the contrary, this anime has an interesting and special way to tell a story quite Original, with charismatic characters, a good soundtrack and a decent animation.
What makes this anime really special is that its history is attractive, has a lot of potential and managed to exploit the maximum, even though there were certain moments of the anime that could be made boring, but are very few, I assure you that this anime will make them pass ...

Mixed Feelings
Let's start with the only reason I watched the series: the manga.
I liked the manga so much that when the announcement about this anime adaption was a miracle for me as I never thought it was that loved in Japan.
First episode: oh, they decided to skip all the initial parts and go for the big part? Uhm ok
Second episode: wait, you decided to get into the start? Why not before instead of making it a suspance lasting so many episode? Oh, well.
NO WAIT NO NOT THIS why is the main character, known for having always had white hair a blonde girl that gets her hair ...

Warning to all that my reviews may or may not contain mature language..So if you don't want to be subjected to bad bad words leave now and don't come back.
As i'm writing these lines i still can't understand what Tokyo ESP is all about.Is it an anime that wants to be taken seriously?Is it a parody?Does it want to be many things at once?

Honestly after watching the whole damn thing i can't for the life of me understand its' purpose.Oh certainly the story,or the thought at least of the story is very.....Well i would say unheard of,but that's simply not the case.The X-Men similarities are ...
