    Zettai Karen Children by Shiina Takashi

    Not really too sure if I am doing the right thing but I sort of want to set up a thread for this series with the anime coming in April. Basically this is the latest series by Takashi Shiina, more known for the Shonen Sunday series "Ghost Sweeper Mikami" (of which only the movie has been released in the US).

    The basics (as I know of it): in the near future, humanity discovers the potential of humans with psychic abilities. To further develop them, an organization called BABEL is set up to hone these abilities and use these humans to better people. The series is mostly focused on three girls belonging in a section of BABEL known as "The Children", who each have a psychic specialization: Kaoru (looks like a young Mikami, psychokinetic), Aoi (reminds me in look a bit like a female verison of Mikami's priest friend Father Karasu with maybe a bit of Haruna Saotome from "Negima", teleportation), and Shiho (sort of reminds me a bit of a white-haired Meiko, psychometry). Unfortunately, these girls really aren't as trusting...heck, Kaoru proclaims that within ten years, they will "control the world"!

    To tell the truth, I haven't read this series and mostly set it up for others to maybe look into and maybe read if someone starts it or not, but I am used to Shiina's style from reading GS Mikami for a period. (he writes a bit like Takahashi and other Sunday writers in many "mini arcs" for development, which can be good for some but tiring for others) The series does look interesting and fun and I would like to maybe see someone pick it up when the anime starts but it probably does require a bit of tolerance if its pacing is anything like Mikami.

    Necro question, roughly how far are the scans to the anime, as in how far behind are they currently?
    There is a mistaken proverb which tells us that those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it. In fact, they're lucky if they're allowed to repeat it. More probably, they're condemned to something even worse than the past. This is doubly true of those who believe that their ignorance somehow makes them morally superior to those who don't share it.

    so basically a mere 80ish chapters ahead of where the scans are currently at. And then another 30ish in the current old children arcs.

    Re: Zettai Karen Children by Shiina Takashi

    Nice to meet everyone here ~ ^^ Call me Spikey.
    The reason I keep tracking on this manga cause I a big fan reader of GS Megami. And then I'm curious to see if Minamoto can change the fact that Kaoru shoot by him at the end.
    I had finished watching entire anime episodes on internet and waiting for a dvd release. I won't said that the artwork of both anime & manga is very good but it was very tidy to read on. 2 of the anime episodes was done by GONZO (the one who made Vandread) and the last episode 51 was very warm touching episode.
    so the first chapter in vol 16 is chapter 138? I only managed to get the raw chapters of 153 until 169. But still very enjoy to read them(I know a bit japanese and can understand the story).

    No idea what is happening, will have to wait a bit till we are up there, in a month or two hopefully.

    Current arc is win however, with the death note parody.

    Recently started reading this. A very good series that is easy to get into and I've enjoyed every bit of it. I've been reading it at a steady pace so far but will probably read it in bulk to hurry and catch up.

    I really do have to feel sorry for Minamoto and what these kids do to him early on. XD
