The protagonist, Kamijou Touma, is one of the weakest a level 0 esper. Despite the fact he is considered one of the weakest ESPers his ability is unique in that it allows him to fight against even level 5 ESPers. Touma has an ability known as Imagine Breaker, anything supernatural like ESPer powers that comes into contact with his right arm is automatically destroyed, though this also seems to have an effect on luck as he often complains he is cursed with misfortune.
Most of the story is told through small arcs where Touma either deals with science related problems such as Academy City's horrible experiments to pit the strongest level 5 ESPer in mortal combat against 20,000 level 2 ESPers in hopes of shifting him to become the first level 6. Or Touma deals with Magical problems such as a magician trying to cause an angel to fall from heaven which would threaten to destroy the world.
and even worse, as each arc goes on, the magic side and the science side threaten to clash violently.
Animation: 8 The strength of this series is that the backgrounds and the character designs are fabulous, Academy city's backgrounds come from real life locations and the end result is amazing. The only down side is that some of the fight scenes are a little unimpressive, but still fun to watch.
|Comparisons of the backgrounds of the seires and compared to there real life counterparts.|
Sound: 9 The music for this series is catching and always appropriate, the voice actors also are spot on.
Plot: 9 Magic and Science mix and meet through the eyes of a boy who can destroy both. The only problem is that a there is a tad too much fan service as it seems that Touma's luck with the ladies is the only luck he has, numerous characters make reference to the fact that every single girl he meets for he most part at some point falls in love with him.
Overall 9: This is a great anime that caters to a variety of genres, it has something for everyone.
