Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited I’ve watched this anime when it first came out back in 2013 while it was airing and I’ve only just finished it recently. The anime was interesting at first. So I thought I should wait for it to finish then watch it. Then I lost interest. Then I thought I should just finish it.

The anime had a good start. The action was good. The animation was good and the music was on point. Story wise, the story had a good build up then you’ll get lost somewhere in the middle and then when you realize how badly they are ruining the anime. You will get to the understanding that the story is a total cliche and it was made for fan service. That sums up my review.

Overall Rate: 6/10

  1. I watched this anime around spring time. I just chose it randomly. I agree that it started with a bang, but somehow lost its stride. However, I still found it entertaining. Nothing too great about it. The characters are interesting & I like the interactions between them. The powers are pretty cool, too. But I admit that the story depth is lacking. Anyway, good to read others writing about this anime. I haven’t read much posts about this.

      1. I know what you mean. But I don’t mind fan service if it works. I think that the fan service isn’t too much in this anime, unlike in other anime where the fan service is the main focal point.
