They're cute, adorable and three of the most powerful Espers the world has ever seen: Kaoru, the brash psychokinetic who can move objects with her mind; Shiho, the sarcastic and dark natured psychometric able to pick thoughts from people's minds and read the pasts of inanimate objects like a book; and Aoi, the most collected and rational of the three, who has the ability to teleport herself and the others at will. So what to do with these potential psychic monsters in the making? Enter B.A.B.E.L., the Base of Backing ESP Laboratory, where hopefully "The Children" and others like them can become part of the answer to an increasing wave of psychic evolution. It's a win-win solution... Unless you're Koichi Minamoto, the overworked young man stuck with the unenviable task of field commanding a team of three pre-teen girls!

I am sure everyone who has watched this Anime would agree with me. Minamoto is a really irritating idealist who keeps on admonishing Hyoubu, saying he is the bane of all normals and some stupid stuff like that. He doesn't even try to understand Hyoubu's point of view.

Hyoubu is the SIGMA of the series. Other PANDRA members fall under the ALPHA category. Minamoto is a beta for sure. The other BABEL members are gamma's.

I have never seen such a bland characterization for a protagonist(Self-Proclaimed) Minamoto, who always spews idealist stuff and blames everything on Hyoubu and PANDRA. He doesn't even know the dark ...

Let's start with my favorite parts of the show: The main Antagonist

Kyosuke for me is interesting, he's cool, he's likable, he's funny, and I have never wanted to join the villains organization more than I want to join PANDRA, Even the members are awesome.

Then there are the main characters in BABEL, now if I wasn't going to join PANDRA, and I was an Esper(#Esper_master_race), I would join BABEL maybe. That's because while I like most of the characters in BABEL, most of them should be fired or sent to prison. The chief is the the absolute worst character in the show, he wastes resources ...
