For everyone who is looking for more (since this series is over), I would strongly recommend reading the manga rather than watching the first Zettai Karen Children series. The series was based off of the manga. The manga is more in-depth and continues well past the point where the first series stopped. I enjoy the series as well, but it ends too quickly to provide a smooth transition between it and this series. There is also an OVA (Dark Minamoto ftw <3) that is worth checking out, but it has nothing to do with the main story.

If you are going to watch the series, it has been licensed and released as Psychic Squad. I plan to buy it myself... the reason why the anime ended (and why the OVA was created) was because the ratings and sales were dismal. Hopefully if there is support this time around, there will be more of The Unlimited at least.

The Zettai Karen Anime was massively kiddified. I was actually pleasantly surprised by how the Manga handled things that the Anime worked very hard to make silly.

Things like the Keeper the girls had before Minamoto. In the anime she was just mean, but in the Manga she was a very disturbed woman. She made their Limiter's into collars they couldn't take off and built electro shock into them. She would shock Shiho and Aoi every time Kaoru acted up.

If Unlimited did well in Japan we could see a new Zettai Karen series that follows in the same sort of gritty action feel Unlimited had. The Battles against Phantom's Daughter can make for some great anime.

It has finally been revealed when this series takes place. It's during the time skip between Volumes 15 and 16 of the manga (Chapters 141 and 142). As stated later on in Volume 17, Chapter 162 (page 8), PANDRA had been primarily acting overseas for those two years.

Gilliam has a point. That would be pretty dramatic... and probably funny

There are so many inconsistencies between the manga and the anime that make me think the anime is not happen at that time. Kaoru doesn't know about the Catastrophe until chapter 173.

Oh, I just noticed that my numbering is probably wrong.... Oops It would take me some time to try figuring out the true chapter numbers for Volumes 15-17.... I think I may have actually meant to reference Chapter 137 (the last chapter of Volume 15) and Chapter 138 (the first chapter of Volume 16)? And I think Chapter 162 is actually Chapter 158?

Anyway, you do have a point about the Catastrophe... I hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it. I'm going to try hard not to think about it too much... at least not until we see if there is more references to this time period either as a second season of The Unlimited Hyobu Kyosuke or an arc in the manga.

Hmm. I failed to comment on this show? Shame on me. Started watching TUHK at the beginning of the winter season, and finished recently. No particular reason for picking it up; I thought it looked pretty good, so I gave it a try. And it ended up being awesome! ... Underrated, too. I think a lot of viewers missed out on this.

Since I couldn't find the Hayate thread. This is from episode 8. Characters look familiar? ;)

Well well well

New chapter of the Manga is up and we have a familiar face appearing, sporting a very stylish eye patch where he used to have a cybernetic eye.



Looks like Unlimited and the main manga are indeed connected.

here is hoping for a Yugiri appearance sometime soon.

Well got my wish, if only in background reveal form.

Newest Manga chapter provides us with some background on Yugiri
