intriguing anime but with flaws
29 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is a plot based anime about two brother who have supernatural powers! One has the power of telekinesis and the other is able to read people (thoughts,memories of past,present and future)! Already in the first episode you get to see how powerful they are! For their and safety of their parents they are forced to go and remain in a special institute where they learn to control their powers! So it seems from the beginning! Later we will find out that there was another reason! After an invisible shield is gone they managed to escape and go their own way! First they are on the search for their parents! On the way they encounter some very disturbed characters who hurt and kill people each with their own motives! They realize that they have the ability to stop them and do so! After several episodes the plot gets very interesting! But suddenly in the last episodes the plot takes a dive and the epic proportions promised at the beginning from the series get diminished! Then the last episode just ends,not even mentioning the end! This suggests that there will be a next season! But this series deserved a bigger finale than what is shown! Most of the things happening in this anime can be creepy and disturbing! Luckily it is not too explicit! It will get your attention! The plot has some surprises in store but some episodes can be very boring (Episodes that repeat the main story without giving new info)! The musical score is excellent! For me this was one of the reasons to keep watching! In this anime the score is more than just background music! It is a key player! The first time you will hear this music you will be convinced that this anime will be interesting! The two brothers are likable characters and depend on each other heavily! Sometimes this can be annoying:"Stop hugging each other already"! In later episodes they both will mature and act on their own! You will see development in their character and abilities and that is very nice to see! This anime is worth watching but is not for everyone!
