Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke

Plot: When the infamous Kyousuke Hyoubu pays a visit to an anti-ESPer prison, Andy Hinomiya is quick to latch onto him. Hinomiya is an investigator sent to check up on Hyoubu's criminal group, P.A.N.D.R.A., and to do that, he must gain the group's trust. But he is surprised to find that the group, including its leader, has another face -- that of a protector for ESPers. (Interesting from the get-go -- A)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: blood/gore, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: A spin-off of "Zettai Karen Children" (English: "Psychic Squad"). Unlike its predecessor, "The Unlimited" is undoubtedly shonen and fairly serious. It disposes of the fan service and innuendo (thank goodness), but starts out with some gore (so, squeamish viewers, keep your finger on the fast-forward or cover your eyes). Fans of "Children", you'll be pleased to see lots of the original cast reappearing here.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5
