A decent 'super-power' anime
6 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the world of this series the comet Charlotte passes the Earth every seventy five years; as a result of its dust a small number of young children are affected by a condition that will give then super powers once they reach puberty. The protagonist of this story is Yuu Otosaka; a boy who gains the power to possess others for a few seconds; a skill he uses to cheat in exams and to start fights between people he doesn't know. His abilities are spotted by Nao Tomori, a girl who is collecting people with abilities and having them transfer to Hoshinoumi Academy where she tries to hide their abilities from the authorities who have been taking an interesting in these special children.

The early episodes involve the finding of various power-users but after an awakening power leads to the death of Yuu's sister things turn dark. A previously suppressed memory about his brother surfaces and he learns that he has another far more powerful power; the ability to take other people's powers; if he is to save those he cares about he will have to use this skill to is full… if there are no people with the powers there will be nobody for the authorities to hunt.

The idea of having people with varied superpowers is hardly new, indeed there have already been anime featuring such characters… this isn't a problem though and this is a welcome addition to the genre. Yuu is a good protagonist and the early episodes are genuinely funny. The various powers exhibited are entertaining. By the time the tone turns darker we are caring about the characters and what happens to them. When Yuu started gaining more and more powers I feared that his character would just become ridiculously powerful but we see that there are also some very negative consequences for him which saved the story from a disappointing ending. Talking of the ending; things are wrapped up nicely in one of the best episodes of the series. The characters are fairly distinctive and the animation is pretty good. Overall if you enjoy this genre I'd recommend checking this out.
