[Manga] Tokyo ESP
if you like ga-rei from Hajime Segawa, then you might like this manga too. The story carried some similarities from his previous artwork; ga-rei. Of course i like yomi isayama long black hair serious type of girl and her character left her fans mesmerized speechless. In Tokyo ESP, it's a story is about one high school girl named rinka urushiba, who lives with her father while being in almost poor conditions that she needs to work part-time. Her life changes when she has the ability to use strange powers that are labeled to be as extrasensory perception or ESP. unlike ga-rei manga, they both posses power from inheritance of the ancestors, rinka obtain her power thru unexpected events and together with her new companions, they try to help others with whatever they can.
Ga-rei had been successful and it has resulted into the anime version of earlier stories as per title Ga-Rei Zero, it's not impossible that the same studio would make an animated series for tokyo ESP as well soon.
the storyline is not that heavy, more into fun, hilarious and daily routines plus a little supernatural events. Not much ecchi scenes, just a typical school girl story life with her father.
have a peek at chapter 5
Plans for Tokyo ESP started when Segawa was still doing the Ga-Rei manga, discussing ideas with his then editor and supervisor when the latter suggested that his next work should be based on superpowers. Segawa suggested that his protagonist should be based from someone in the Matrix series with the comical ability to use his fart as a weapon with the addition of drama before the supervisor told him to take out the farting ability. Segawa decided to go with the female lead like he did with the Ga-Rei manga series. During brainstorming, Segawa pitched an idea to his staff that the female could have fearsome superpowers due to the concern that the female lead will not be prominently known if a male character helps her out, which was met with some opposition from his supervisor again.
as usual, recommended to Ultimateshock, sono, ahmad, ReZoN and anime fans
