Plot: Superpowers are an adolescent disease -- and Yuu Otosaka has got it bad. He has the ability to take over others' bodies and uses it for things like cheating on tests and messing with thugs. When Yuu's antics go too far, Nao Tomori and Takajo, members of another school's student council, come to take him down a peg with their own special abilities. Now, Yuu and his little sister have to go to their school and help them track down other potentially-dangerous ability users. (Takes a while to get to the point and is a bit on the convoluted side. -- B-)

Characters: Yuu and one or two others are pretty well-rounded, but the rest stay fairly flat. -- B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, suggestive themes

Other: The latest in studio Key's lineup is not quite what you expect. Episodes vary in quality -- the good ones were enough to keep me watching, but the not-so-good ones...well... were a bit disappointing. The story twists are kind of weird, too. Overall, an uneven experience.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5
