Urushiba Rinka was a fairly normal high school girl, though she was a bit poor and her only family was her father. Then one day, she saw a penguin and some glowing fish swimming through the sky. Rinka might have thought it was a hallucination if there hadn't been another witness with her, a boy from her school with a strangely scratched-up face.

Contact with a fish caused her to pass out, and when she awoke, she had developed the power to move through inanimate objects... such as the floor of her apartment! Later, a call from her father showed her that she was not the only one the flying fish bestowed with hard-to-control superpowers! What exactly is going on here? And does Rinka's classmate know more about this situation than he's letting on?

Tokyo ESP is very, very mediocre.

When i first started reading Tokyo ESP i took quite an interest. The Mc was female which you don't see much of in a shounen manga and it had quite positive reviews. It had a few good opening chapters which gave a good understanding of the world and the situation of our protagonist was in; overall it set the premise well and it had potential to expand into a interesting story. However, as the story went on the manga betrayed my expectations and came about full of cliches and boring protagonists.

The story went so far to take a read more

Why hasn't Tokyo ESP gotten any reviews? It's a real gem compared to all the trash the media is releasing- I don't even get how some of that stuff is published. So anyway, let me ask you a question. Do you want to read a manga with romance that has a supernatural setting and a kick ass crew? Are you sick of cry baby, pathetic, heroines? Do you want some good action? How about flying fish, macho, literally magnetic fathers, yoda in a panda disguse, a little girl using nunchucks like a boss, and more? If you said yes to any of those, Tokyo ESP read more

Almost everyone wants to make their mark on their world. At the very least, most people wish to have the power to change the world around them...

But what happens when you possess that power, and fantasy gives way to reality?

In a society that remains critical of individualistic personas, and partial to those who do conform, Rinka, a young girl who only wants to fit in with the people around her, is read more

The story is set into 2 main parts. The story and characters for each part will be separately reviewed.

Art: 7/10
The art is nothing too extraordinary. It has a clean style save for some action scenes (But that's not unheard of). The art is very consistent and style doesn't change, which is fine since it started out well in the first place. Scenery can sometimes clash with the people into a small mess, but things are still distinguishable and bearable. There isn't much to say on the art besides it's fully average.
