you should give it a shot it's not bad.
More super powered fun with main characters who are actually pretty confident in themselves.
Personally I like Unlimited a bit better but Problem Children is a good series



I think I will give it a shot = )

you should definitely give it a watch and see for yourself. like Greylurker says it's pretty similar to The UNLIMITED but Problem Children is a little more light hearted which isn't a bad thing. Problem Children is definitely my fave this season :)

I don't think it's a clear cut case of Good or Bad.

Grey, your the last line in that spoiler up there, that's not something that good, or even grey organizations do.

It's pretty much pitch as black evil

that is

you are right there, from Hyobu's perspective it's about protecting his people from the perspective of normals he's a genocidal mad man.

the problem is that Hyobu's perspective is backed up by his own experiences. He's seen first hand what he needs to protect his people from. In his mind he is fighting against a despicable evil that would see all Espers dead or enslaved.

Sure not all normals are like that, and we have ones like the people at BABEL and the Princess from episode 3. But we also have those guys from episode 1 and much worse in the world.




Think of it from another perspective

How do you think the Egyptians viewed Moses?

From the perspective of the Jews he saved them and lead them to freedom.
but for the Egyptians? Bringer of Plagues, Locusts, killer of their first born.

Everyone's hero is someone else's villain.

There's limits though. The Japanese probably weren't too fond of MacArthur, but genocidal is genocidal :P

(not that it matters much, I guess it's just a thing for me, the 'megavillian justified by something horrible done to him/her in the past' is a reasonably common trope in JP stuff, and it always irks me)

It's why I always compare Hyobu to Magneto in X-Men.

Magneto saw first hand what evil humanity is capable of, once they separate one group as being different from the rest. Protecting Mutant kind from the atrocities he saw and experienced first hand, was always his driving goal with the Brotherhood of Mutants.

Ditto for Hyobu, though in his case there is the added knife in the back in that he was shown a wonderful dream of a future where Espers and Normals lived and worked together only to have it snatched away by the people he trusted most.

Both men are fighting against what they precieve as an incoming genocide against their kind by adopting a strike first attitude.

of course what I was really hoping for this episode was Fujiko vs. the Major.

I guess they might want to take some time to build up to that considering their shared history.

Episode 5

I am still enjoying this series quite a bit!

Yugiri is sooo kawaii in this episode. I'm glad she's getting out more rather than being on missions all the time. I liked the tensions between Babel and Andy again.

I did not like the way those people at the amusement park was treating her.. Damn, she's just a little girl. Esper? Hell, she was much more useful than anyone there. So basically, this episode showed that being an esper is very hard in this world. Yup, it clearly is.

The fear of Espers is what both PANDRA And BABEL are fighting against in different ways.

In Hyobu's case he figures it's a lost cause so he has put his efforts into creating a world just for Espers. For those who just want a peaceful life he gives them that, both on the Catastrophe and on a hidden island he's got tucked away someplace (it even has it's own amusement park)

For BABEL it's about creating a world where normals and esper co-exist and trust each other. They employ Espers for the sake of helping society and proving to Normals that Espers aren't monsters to be feared and hated.

Seeing Yugiri in action was quite something though. She's at least level 6 and very possibly a level 7 Telepath

This episode also narrows our timeline down quite a lot. The PANDRA kids don't seem to be at school yet but Yuuri is already there. so that places it between chapters 140 and 195
