Posted 7/19/08
E's otherwise-is an anime based on the manga series "E's" by Satoru Yuiga, which was serialized in the Monthly GFantasy. E's was collected into 12 volumes between 1997 and 2005. The anime aired from 1 April 2003 – 23 September 2003, ran for 26 episodes, and 3 volumes of videos of it were released on VHS and DVD. It is licensed by ADV Films.



Plot

Kai and Hikaru are protected by a corporation called ASHURUM, from a society that fears E's. ASHURUM is 1 of the 12 corporations that rule the world. Found by Eiji, Kai was selected to be in ASHURUM’s special force AESES and had to undergo intensive training in different areas, such as combat, hacking, and psychic training.

When Kai had free time he visited Hikaru at the hospital, Hikaru's condition never improved. After a year, Shen-lon told Kai that Eiji really just wanted his sister, because she was said to have had amazing psychic powers, but due to her illness she was not able to use them. Shen-lon continued to tell Kai that Eiji was just hoping Kai would have those amazing powers too.

Kai didn’t believe Shen-lon and goes on a mission to Gald city, with the other E's, to infiltrate a hideout of guerillas that is said to have been using E’s against their will. Kai finds some civilians caught in the middle of the battle. While trying to save a little girl, one of the civilians that is afraid of E’s, shoots and kills Kai’s partner.

Kai, still shocked from the death of his partner, tries to help the civilians, but meets up with, Shen-lon. In a rage, Shen-lon unleashes a psychic blast that decimates half the city.

Later, Kai is found by a girl named Asuka, washed up on a shore. After being brought back to health, Yuuki tells Kai that he would not have his psychic powers back to what they were unless he goes back to ASHURUM. After spending time in the city and with the people of the city, Kai decides to stay with Asuka and Yuuki for a while.
