Hamatora First Impressions: Psychic powers!

[HorribleSubs] Hamatora - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.24_[2014.01.09_06.45.39]

Well, this show seems to be a typical setup following a poor guy, apparently named Nice, with psychic powers as he tries to make money. It looks like the use of Minimum requires some sort of action to be taken, similar to the Contractors of Darker than Black, but much less damaging. So far, we’ve seen things like listening to music, biting on a taser (this didn’t look harmful), and chewing gum as prerequisites, so it’s clearly not meant to be a price. However, I could see it being used against them in the future.

I actually quite liked the opening song of this series…ending song not as much, but definitely a solid opening song, I would say. It was kind of an interesting mechanic to make all of the jobs in this first episode connected and force the duo to work together in the end. I wonder if they’ll continue to do something like that. It looks like the show will be focusing around someone who targets the Minimum Holders. I wonder if it’s a similar situation to Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist, where the person is someone without Minimum that gained power similar to Minimum somehow. This show could be interesting and I’m considering picking it up.
