In the future, as people with ESP increase in numbers, so does the possible good and evil they can cause to society. The Japanese government establishes the Base of Backing ESP Laboratory (B.A.B.E.L.) a special esper organization tasked with dealing with situations that can't be resolved by ordinary means, including dealing with espers engaged in criminal activity. Kouichi Minamoto, a 20-year-old prodigy is assigned by B.A.B.E.L. to the task of supervising the most powerful espers in the country, a trio of gifted but mischievous 10-year-old girls known as "The Children."

But wait - the series also has three time skips in which the same girls are 13, 15 and 20 respectively. There has to be character development here, right? I was sold! And here is ...

Psychic Squad, also known as Zettai Karen Children in Japan, is one of the long manga series in terms of volume count.

Despite its positive reception and large cult following, the manga falls short in ...
