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."

In the 21st century, people with psychic powers (espers), have become fairly common, and the BABEL is the branch of the Japanese government responsible for esper affairs. Japan's 3 most powerful espers are a trio of 10-year old girls, the Children. Hilarity ensues, along with a very awesome plot.

Amidst it all, trying to stop a 100% likely apocalyptic future, is a mentally-gifted but otherwise normal 20-year-old, Minamoto Kouichi. And seriously, if anyone deserves his perfect harem ending as a replacement for that bad future, it is this man. Literally his entire life is lived for the sake of helping his charges, read more

Every now and then, you find one of these type of mangas , that not only surpasses your expectations , it continues to improve as as the story continues.

To be honest , when i first started this series , I wasn't expecting too much , the name it self (embarrassed to made the same mistake with change 123) didn't lend to anything too exciting and story seemed pretty generic as well.

I really don't recommend this manga. It was a major dissapointment while the basic idea could create a very good story. It was cheaply made, with typical things like violence and sexual themes put on an anime where the main characters are 10 year old girls, making a rather deformed combination.

Actually, I don't have any complains there. The story itself wasn't bad. Not very original, but satisfactory. It's about a future with espers where criminals have superpowers and the 10year olds stop them... not a bad way to approach a very common theme.

Not bad, really... but I'm not really good at judging artwork...

Some people use to have some kind of prejudice about this series, just because the main characters of this manga are 3 little girls, and because of the name, which is actually very catchy, but doesn't tell you anthing about the series when you translate it. I myself was actually a little bit skeptical to ZKC at the begining, and not due to prejudice; however it only took 2 chapters for me to get interested on it and maybe 4 or 5 chapters to be completly hooked by it. The story is narrated in such a beatiful way, and the characters are so well presented read more
