Tokyo ESP Final Episode (12): All part of the plan

I’m still grappling with indecision about the shows that are coming out for the new season, so I guess I’ll wrap this show up before I make any choices. I really should have expected this ending given the ongoing manga status. It looks like everything was a plan from the Professor to draw out a specific esper. Presumably, this guy is somehow the root related to the Ark of the Covenant that caused everyone’s deaths in the Professor’s past.

I guess I was disappointed with how this show turned out. I was intrigued by the first episode, but then it ended up getting boring pretty quickly. And now I’m feeling a bit trolled by the ending since it leaves so many questions up in the air. I give this show points for the flying penguin, but I don’t really know how much more I can say.

Tokyo ESP Episode 11: Back to the beginning

We’ve finally looped around to the first episode’s events. Most of this week’s episode was build-up and gathering in preparation for the final episode next week. I’m not sure how I feel about the show introducing a fairly sentient swan at the very end of the series. I had no idea how to react to that. It doesn’t look like this swan will have much time to do much…

I guess Kyoutarou will be showing up at the very last minute…more than likely in a final showdown against the main antagonist. I’m still curious whether Minami will end up betraying her father in the end, but I guess we’ll see. Everything seems to indicate that this series is heading towards a fairly sound conclusion, though. It seems odd for them to use a mechanic like showing glimpses of the final episodes in the first episode if they were headed towards a cliffhanger. But I guess the manga is still ongoing…

Tokyo ESP Episode 6: Training with Master Roshi

It looks like we’re going to get a brief break for some training. This week’s episode introduces Ozora Ayumu into the cast…was he the guy in the first episode? I didn’t expect him to already be somewhat combat effective, having trained with the panda already. I wouldn’t have guessed that from just looking at him. Meanwhile, Azuma is hanging around in the enemy base doing nothing much.

The title of next week’s episode doesn’t really indicate much…it seems to suggest just more training. I’m assuming Rinka is supposed to be discovering some sort of secret technique? Or maybe the episode will just be devoted to introducing Ayumu more as a character. We’ll see, I guess…this part of the story is outside my realm of knowledge.
