Tokyo ESP is a sci-fi anime series that takes place in modern-day Tokyo. The story follows Rinka Urushiba, a high school student who gains supernatural powers after encountering an unusual fish while working part-time at a local aquarium. Rinka discovers that she has the ability to move through solid objects, which leads her to join a group of like-minded individuals with powers of their own.

Alongside Rinka, the show follows Kyotaro Azuma, a young man who possesses incredible speed and strength, and their other superpowered allies. As the group works to uncover the mysterious circumstances behind their powers, they must also navigate the dangerous world of underground organizations and government conspiracies.

One such organization is the Four A, a group of espers who have gained powers through experimentation and seek to use their abilities to take control of Tokyo. Led by the ruthless and enigmatic Kyoujiro Mikage, the Four A serve as the primary antagonists of the show, and the group of heroes must work to stop them from achieving their nefarious goals.

The show also touches on themes of societal inequality and discrimination against those with powers, as the espers are often ostracized and feared by the general population. This is exemplified by Rinka's father, a former police officer who was forced to retire after being falsely accused of having powers. Seeing the struggles of those like her father and other espers only further motivates Rinka to use her abilities for good.

The animation in Tokyo ESP is visually stunning, with bright and vivid colors and fluid action sequences. The character designs are also well-done, with each character's power reflected in their appearance in creative ways. The sound design is equally impressive, with a diverse and exciting soundtrack that complements the action on screen.

One of the strengths of the show is its ensemble cast, with each character bringing a unique personality and set of abilities to the table. Rinka serves as the heart of the group with her selflessness and determination, while Kyotaro provides a more humorous and carefree attitude to balance things out. The other espers are also well-developed and provide a range of powers and personalities that keep things interesting.

Overall, Tokyo ESP is an engaging and exciting sci-fi anime series that blends action, drama, and supernatural elements into a compelling storyline. With a diverse cast of characters, impressive animation, and thought-provoking themes, it's a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Tokyo ESP is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on July 11, 2014.
