Interesting movie we got here, despite it’s clichéd synopsis of the esper guy who has his limited powers and only can use a great amount of power when cornered like a mouse. I’m sure I’ve watched something with a similar synopsis before.
The thing about Ai City despite it’s clichéd synopsis and corny title is it does have more inside than meets the eye, especially it’s visuals, the animation is pretty good and provided some very interesting scenes and allied to the esper/psychic nature atmosphere of the anime, it had some very good scenes in it.
It tried to include a wide concept into one hour read more

Sometimes, people criticize something saying it doesn't make sense. With anime this happens a lot. You can say that sometimes people just don't get, or didn't want to, but sometimes, when someone says something doesn't make sense, it's because, yeah, it doesn't make any sense. Ai City is a good example.

Imagine an anime whose script didn't have any sense of pacing, without explaining or exposing anything to you jumps right to an action scene which you can get engaged or excited because you're still wondering what the hell it's going on. That's your first scene. Yeah, didn't sound very promising, but don't worry, the rest read more

I read the manga version many many years ago.....since then I forgot the name of that already, I tried to search without a clue for long.

Thanks to the awesome Internet (and MyAnimeList), I could finally put my long-time search to an end.

This anime version is somehow different than the manga version, and I am not going to include so here.

And I want to say that, this Ai City anime kind of makes me like the bad guys more than the good guys, which is read more

Totally messy action movie with sci-fi, comedy and a bit of romance thrown in. It has potential but eventually the story organization is so bad it's just gonna leave you confused and exhausted.

From scene one it's hard to tell who the main character is, there is a protagonist but the screen time is divided between his sidekicks and the bad guys as well so there are lots of characters which gets needlessly confusing. To make it worse most of them aren't really interesting or important.

At the 1st half the story is shallow yet fun, the bad guys want to kidnap the hero's girl and the read more
