Helen ESP is from the controversial author of Franken Fran and retains much of the same dark style, but takes a much brighter look on life and death thanks to the cheerfulness of the main character. In Helen ESP, we follow Takahara Helen, who lost her sight, hearing and speech in a terrible car accident. Now she lives with her Uncle and a helper dog named Victor... and she's awakening to her own gift.

I suppose there are countless ways of approaching disability in fiction for contemporary authors. And countless ways to fail doing it. It is a rather difficult field to tackle with so many trapdoors to fall into and so many people to offend. How do we treat handicap in fiction?

If you said yes to all 3, you will enjoy this manga. It's highly episodic, which is both a good and bad thing. It makes the story seem longer, and doesn't dwell on things to long, ...

The focus of this series, that some other people have obviously missed, is not disability. At it's core it's a slice of life series about a girl with ESP powers that goes around encountering short stories evolving the supernatural. Each chapter is like a fairy tale, an urban legend, a fable, et. It's almost like Mushishi.

Not every story involving a disabled person is about the disabilities. And if your dismiss a series just because it overlooks the disability after reading merely 2 chapters you should not be writing reviews.

Anyways, if you read Franken Fran by the same author, this series is pretty similar except it ...
