Summary: An original spin-off series centering around Kyousuke Hyoubu. He leads a group called P.A.N.D.R.A and his main mission is to save ESPers who are mistreated by humans.
Considering Takashi Shiina said himself that you wouldn’t need to watch the original to watch The Unlimited, I decided to pick this show up. I can say that so far, I am pleased with what had unfolded within the first episode of Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimted. Starts off with some cool gunfights and ESPer uses, I was immediately intrigued! I mean like… come on! This is the first serious series we’re given this season (Nekomogatari is a movie guys). I was pretty bored with all the 5 minute shows and them self-proclaimed comedies that started off the season so going into Zettai, it was refreshing to say the least.
Hyoubu and Andy are both mysterious male leads that really makes the show entertaining to watch. Both of them have a reason for what they do and both of them will execute whatever actions needed in order to achieve their goals (this is as much as I can say without spoilering). Fans of Zettai might like Unlimited, I can’t say too much on that since I haven’t seen the origina,l but if they’re similar in terms of ESPer action or Hyoubu doesn’t get much air time in the original, I think this spin-off would be quite the treat. But either way, Unlimited packs a lot of potential and is worth giving a try.
