In the future, select humans have begun to evolve and acquire special ESP powers – powers that the rest of the populace fear and detest. While some ESPers are harmless, others desire to use their powers for their own personal gain. In order to suppress this threat, identify new ESPers and protect those with powers from the public, the B.A.B.E.L. organization is founded. At its helm are three ten-year-old ESPers: Kaoru, Aoi and Shiho. Together, they will put a stop to crime and attempt to gain the trust of the public; but can their guardian, Kouichi Minamoto, manage to help the girls mature enough so their selfish actions will stop hurting the world around them?
In the technologically-advanced Academy City, millions of students study superhuman and psychic powers. Judgment, a group made up of specially-trained students and adults, helps combat threats to the city and its people by helping apprehend power-wielding criminals. Mikoto, Kazari and Kuroko are three friends who juggle school and Judgment, all the while learning how to best use their skills. Together, they will help keep Academy City safe from the bad guys and have plenty of fun in the process.
Zettai Karen Children and Railgun follow a group of kids with psychic powers as they take down various bad guys. ZKC's chars are definitely more bratty, but both series have a similar feel for sure.
BothZettai Karen ChildrenandTo Aru Kagaku no Railgunare similar. They both are in a technologically-advanced timeline. There are young girls who are doing their city's dirty work by catching criminals and helping the civilian. And ofcoure the girls all have psychic powers. These series also have good comedy, and good action scenes!
The only difference is that Zettai Karen is about three girls at 10 years which have more jokes about lolicons and other perverted stuff, and Railgun futures teens with more ecchi scenes.
ZTC and Railgun are both one of my favourite animes. They're about a group of psychic wielding girls called "espers" fighting crime while getting on with their day to day lives. They both have some funny light comedy stuff, great action scenes and above all, solid plot/character development.
What I love about both these animes is how well they portray the friendships these girls have with each other. Its so sweet. They mess around, they get into scruffles, but when push comes to shove, they will totally lay down their lives for their friends. The writers did a very good job in developing the characters in both. They have sometimes sad background stories that shape out their motivations and help you identify with the characters. So you totally end up rooting for them when they go fight bad guys.
ZTC is more of a comedy (and boy do those guys know how to draw cute!) while Railgun is abit more serious. I got interested in ZTC after watching the new "unlimited" spin off. I thought it was rather zany at first and didn't think much of it (after seeing the darker sequel), but just keep watching, it grows on you quick! The red head's antics and OMG the cuteness helps alot. Oh yeah I just noticed both main characters are red heads!? It must be fate. Highly recommend watching both.
When Hayate was young, Santa appeared in a dream and told him that if he worked hard, he’d be rewarded. Thus, with an unbreakable will, the unfortunate Hayate has struggled through life holding onto that belief. In the present, his parents are lazy and unemployed, forcing Hayate to work several jobs to pay the bills. As if things couldn’t get worse, Hayate’s parents then run away, leaving him with an enormous debt and loan sharks on his tail! Naturally, the best solution to find money fast is… to kidnap someone?! A girl named Nagi is the target, but due to an unfortunate miscommunication, she believes Hayate has proposed to her and falls for him hard. After Nagi paid off his debt, Hayate must now work as her butler in order to repay her; but first, he must adapt to her wacky world!
I haven't seen Hayate because bandai is dubbing it, and I want to see it dubbed first.
Dang you bandai! Go die in a couch fire! No way am I spending money on a DVD full of what is basicaly fan subs!
So ZTC isn't as referential as HtCB but they are both about kind main character who gets much less than he deserves, a bunch of spontanious action and the appearance of a strange man with an afro.
Not only that, ZKC is made by the same company and director, with many appearnces by HtCB's titular character. It would be safe to say that these animes are similar.
Aoki Daisuke is a fresh, new elementary school teacher, eager to help shape and guide his young students. But he got more than he bargained for with Kokonoe Rin! This saucy third grader has knowledge beyond her years, and a deep-seated mistrust and loathing of adults. She will go to any lengths to protect her friends Kuro and Mimi, including harassment, extortion, threats, and sexual blackmail. And yet, with her friends, she is kind, caring, and self-sacrificing. Can Daisuke gain Rin's trust and save her from her dark side without falling victim to it himself?
Hi there, your resident ZKC reccomender here! And you know, both ZKC and KnJ are about adults helping young girls mature, but ZKC's girls have superpowers, where as the only thing KnJ's girls have are a creepy level of cuteness
There's also a bit of comedy in both, usually at the expense of the hero.
Once upon a time, a creature named Enka tried to destroy everything on Earth. It was eventually slain by humans; but before dying Enka proclaimed that one day its child would return to the planet, spreading fear and despair throughout all humanity. Now, thousands of years later, DNA tests have identified six 'children of Enka'. Only one of them is dangerous, but nobody knows which one (and killing them all would be mean!) Instead, 'Operation Cozy Family' is born! Normal human Ouka Midarezaki is forced into marrying Kyouka, one of the children of Enka; and together they play the roles of 'father' and 'mother' for the other children. But will family bonding and love really be enough to prevent the destruction of the planet?
paranormal craziness, whacky characters and the beating of the sole normal guy is what both of these shows are about.
Most of the shows are spent on one episode filler and rarely have a large story arc, but still have a plot. Though KKN is about random assorted characters and abilities (maybe saving the world.) ZKN is about nothing but ESPers, (read magical girl)
Join Haruhi, Yuki, Kyon, Mikuru, Itsuki, and the rest of the gang in their all-new adventures. From creepy dreams, dodge ball games, quiz shows, and cosplay contests, the excitement never stops! Can Kyon, the only normal student of the SOS Brigade, make sense of all these odd occurrences, attempt to avoid them, and hopefully survive them with his sanity intact? With the adventure and mystery-seeking Haruhi in his way, along with aliens, espers, and time travelers, he certainly has his doubts!
crazyness, fantasy and an unfortunate, yet otherwise able hero are what these animes are about.
I would say that ZKC is not as crazy as the absurdity haruhi-chan, but it is more crazy than haruhi. But really, both shows are about crazyness caused by one (or three) girls, and the guy who has to put up with them. Poor Minamoto and kyon
