The first episode exceeded my expectations. Then again, I didn't know what to expect honestly. It was entertaining and the end was unexpected. I look forward to next week's episode.

Episode 2



What a badass way to start off this episode. Well, at any rate, I felt the episode was good the way the team functions collectively to accomplish their tasks. Cheers~

I like where this series is going tbh and that blue haired chick is pretty cool.

That fanservice at the start was awesome and everyone's abilities is pretty intriguing and I wonder what's up with Hyoubou's affection for drinking milk?

Check out my episode review if you like? down below

I never saw Zettai Karen (apparently, it's nothing like this)

but this show, so far, is very X-Men like

I'm digging it.

With ep 2 the action and intrigue is interesting.There have a lot of room for background stories.With all the deals and missions it reminds me of Black Lagoon and Jormungand except with Espers powers instead of standard weapons.

Zettai Karen is kind of like this only nicer. The main characters in Zettai Karen are 10 year old girls and the adults do take considerable effort to shield them from the realities of the world and of course a lot of it is 10 year old girls teasing and making fun of their adult handlers, so for the most part it's a pretty light a fluffy show with a dark center.

The stuff we see in Unlimited is simmering below the surface of Zettai Karen mostly unseen by the girls, but it is there. The fact that the Girls are destined to lead PANDRA when they grow up and that there is 50/50 that they will either destroy humanity or save it is something the Adults are concerned with but the girls are generally kept in the dark about.


As the manga progresses and girls get older (they are about 13 now in the manga) the dark parts of the world are getting closer but for the time being they are still pretty naive to the realities of their world.


It is extremely X-men like, especially once they started introducing the Synthesis power users.

he's got a pretty well developed background, I'd give details but I have no idea how much of it they intend to go into so I don't want to spoil anything.

The short of it is, this is the kind of man you get when a young Shonen hero runs into the wall of reality and doesn't break.

Next episode is going to be interesting with the arrival of Minamoto and Sakaki but personally I really am hoping for Fujiko to appear at some point in this story.


(if you are wondering, Fujiko is the Professor X to Hyobu's Magneto.)

I don't think it's necessary to have seen Zettai Karen to understand Unlimited.

basically if you understand the plot of X-Men you should be fine. Just think of Hyobu as Magneto and everything else lines up

It is kind of cool seeing Hyobu's protegees in action.

In Zettai Karen you don't see them in action all that often. Magi has always come across as a bit of a bad ass but Yoh gets used for comedy relief a lot. Seeing Momiji using her spacial lock for that Buddha's Palm technique was pretty cool. Used creatively it's a pretty dangerous specialization.

Haha ok that sounds great. I have heard good things about zettai karen, but i dont feel like starting on a really long anime, so thats a relief. Guess i will watch the first episode of unlimited now then.
