If not for his ability to take over people's mind and body, Yuu Otosaka would be an ordinary high school student. Though it only lasts for five seconds at a time, Yuu's mysterious power allowed him to cheat his way to the top of his class and enter a prestigious high school, where he continues his dishonest acts.

His shenanigans are eventually stopped by Nao Tomori—the headstrong student council president from Hoshinoumi Academy—who sees through his deceit. Through coercion, Nao convinces Yuu to transfer to Hoshinoumi and join the student council. Hoshinoumi Academy is secretly an institution created for adolescents who possess supernatural abilities—with the student council serving as a means of locating those who abuse their powers.

With Yuu begrudgingly assisting in council affairs, the group sets out to find and protect new ability users from harm. However, as they further investigate the abilities, their findings entangle them in far more complicated matters than they could ever imagine.

To summarise Charlotte in one sentence-
A better version of My Hero Acadamia but with lots of themes and heart touching moments.

The power system was made in a way i have never seen before. Their powers never work quite right, or how they are suppose to, making the show even more interesting and giving a satisfying ending.
Despite being short, it rounded up everything really well, telling the story of each character and revealing plot twists in a very simple way. This made the story easy to understand with no questions asked.
Like the story, Charlotte has a beautiful artsyle which makes the intro much ...

Title: Charlotte

The story in Charlotte revolves around so-called Gifted individuals who possess special abilities such as mind reading, hypnosis, teleportation, or flying. By the end of the series, not all abilities are even mentioned. These abilities do not last a lifetime but disappear at the end of puberty.

People with abilities are called Gifted. In Charlotte, these Gifted individuals are pursued for experimentation. As a result, they form an organization to defend themselves against these people, referred to as the "Scientists" in the series.

Yuu Otosaka is one of these Gifted and is also one of the main protagonists. Other main characters include:
Nao Tomori, Joujiro Takajou, Yusa ...

This anime begins with one of the laziest plot devices that can make any story to play out however the author feels like it at any moment. Whether it’s Code Geass or Attack on Titan, the moment mind control comes into play nobody has free will. They stop being characters and become puppets that behave however the plot wants them to behave. The author is the first who realized it and stopped trying to flesh them out. That is why the characters are all 1-dimensional archetypes, defined by a single gimmick which they repeat in an identical manner in every episode.

The premise is about the ...
