Synopsis

Fifty years ago, horrific creatures dubbed as the "enemies of humanity" suddenly appeared around the world. To combat these threats, teenagers gifted with supernatural abilities called "Talents"—such as pyrokinesis and time travel—hone their powers at an academy on a secluded island.

Nanao Nakajima, however, is quite different from the others on the island: he has no Talent. With many "Talented" teenagers around him, Nanao is often a target for bullying, but even so, he still strives to complete his training. Soon after, two transfer students, the mysterious Kyouya Onodera and the mind-reading Nana Hiiragi, join the class. But just as everyone starts blending as comrades-in-arms, mysterious disappearances begin to threaten the class's entire foundation.

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.” ― Albert Einstein / a.k.a I don't quite understand the hate for this show. Why? Because you're plain stupid/dumb to understand, that's mean.

What defines humanity as a whole? It's the age-old argument of stupidity. From psychology to physiology, all humans are ironically wired to have a level of stupidity, whether by a congenital lack of capacity for reasoning or temporary slow-mindedness. Don't attempt to go and defend yourself by remitting the "ignorance is bliss" adage, because while it doesn't equal stupidity, "'tis folly to be wise." Don't get me ...

Talentless Nana is a really enjoyable show from start to finish that's unfortunately kneecapped by overly repetitive episode structures and the story being left on an indefinite cliffhanger.

(This review is spoiler free with only minor allusions to events of the first episode throughout)

Let's start with the good first!

Talentless Nana has an incredibly compelling premise, as revealed in episode 1. I can't speak to the details without spoiling things, but rest assured that the gears get turning very quickly and keep you hooked. The plot is rather breakneck in speed by most single season anime standards, and it's honestly a nice refresher from the all-too-common ...

[ There are going to be some massive spoilers in this review as it’s impossible to criticize this show without giving away massive plot points]

Talentless Nana is a wasted potential if I ever saw one. It builds up everything in its favour in the first episode, only to discard it in the subsequent ones. Although the concept works, the execution and the characters, especially the characters, don’t.

The show is a murder mystery, but not for us. We already know “whodunnit” in the first episode, but the characters don’t. It’s set in a world where some children manifest superhuman abilities, and are sent to a ...
