If Konata Had Superpowers…

What? This show is boring? Well...

...they would make her the lead character of Zettai Karen Children. To reinforce that statement, Aya Hirano is cast as the seiyuu for the role of Kaoru Akashi, a 10 year old esper working for B.A.B.E.L, an organization established solely to suppress other espers that abuse their abilities. While I don't particularly like her, I guess she was a sensible choice in some way, as Karen has the same brash and outspoken nature of Haruhi with a tinge of otaku characteristics from Konata.

Just like Night Wizard, trouble brews in the heart of Akihabara, where a homo-erotic gimp that shoots pew pew lazors out of his crotch(it turns out to be from his abdomen later on) wrecks havoc in Animate(known as Animania here). As is the task of all magical girls out there, Kaoru, together with Aoi and Shiho are deployed to subdue the villain. However, in the process, the girls, or in this case Kaoru, destroys the entire store, and parts of Toranoana, which is just right next to it. Ouch, inb4lawsuits. They get a second shot at righting the wrong when they enlist the help of Kouichi Minamoto, their new field leader, who takes over the task of handling these volatile and inexperienced espers, who at heart are still just lolis, as he is subjected to abuse, mainly from Kaoru.

Absolutely Lovely Children(hardly, considering the uninspiring character designs) is your typical contemporary styled mahou shoujo series with some otaku references thrown in to make it a tad more appealing to their target audience, which makes this show sort of like Lucky Star with destructive little girls. Kinda. Either way, it has enough going for it for the time being, although a possible over reliance nonsensical jokes revolving around with no proper plot development will just send this title into the discount bin of obscurity.

  12. Nonsensical jokes? Might just be my type of anime. From the looks of the anime, I don’t think it could come close to match the legendary wackiness of Sexy Commando.
