Misaka Mikoto, one of the top level espers in town, shares a room with Kuroko Shirai, another high level esper who is a member of Judgement, a law enforcing agency composed of students. Both attend to Tokiwadai, a private school reserved for the high-leveled and the rich. Kuroko’s partner at Judgement, Kazari Uiharu, is a low level esper who studies at Sakugawa middle school. Her best friend and classmate there is Ruiko Saten, a level zero (no esper powers). Together the four encounter several adventures in the exciting scientific town.

Again, like the Space Dandy contest, “everything” but the movie itself.

Liked Index slightly better than Railgun, first seasons at least; haven’t yet plowed thru seasons 2. Thought Psychic Squad was a funner esper series. Index should have had a tighther focus on the magic vs. science angle.
