I just started watching Tokyo ESP on Hulu. I get the impression that it's season 2 or a sequel to something. I know some times they give anime different names for ongoing series. Is that the case here? Or is backstory something I'm going to get from this point on?

They start from the middle. The next episode is going to start from the middle, the slowly go to the beginning, then we get to the end by the last episode.

Edit: You still won't get it by the second episode.

They're playing it the same way they did with Ga Rei: Zero , start off at the end point then go back to the beginning a few episodes later.

Cool. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't something I needed to go back and watch first. Thanks for the info.

I'm glad you got an answer, but I'm closing this thread (and would have regardless of whether or not you'd received an answer), because individual threads requesting help/advice/info are against CR 's site rules. In the future if you have an anime related question such as this, please ask in an existing thread, such as:

The Anime Help Thread ("stickied" near the top of the Anime forum)

Or a relevant discussion thread. In this case that would be:
