April 2008 New Anime: Zettai Karen Children

Genres: Comedy / Semi-children's / Magical Girl (not literally, just that type)
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Children / Common

Summary: BABEL, BAse of Backing ESP Laboratory (Sometime you wonder how they can just keep coming up with broken English acronyms like this...) is a special ESP organization for stopping crimes. The core of the organization is the team called "Children" - three girls who has highest possible ESP levels. But they're only 10 years old, having this much power at this age also means trouble.

Rating (of 5) - first impression: 4 - Interesting

Recognized Voice talent: Aya Hirano (平野綾): Very easily recognized becaues of her distinct voice. She's probably most famous as Haruhi from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Reira from Nana, Misa from Death Note, Lumiere from Kiddy Grade, and Konata Izumi from Lucky Star.

Personal comments: Most children's anime doesn't interest me. But there are some, for no obvious reason I can find, I just couldn't put them down. Take this one for example, I could find no obvious reason why I like this anime, but I just do.
