Plot Summary: Haruka Kotoura is a girl who was born with the ability to read minds. Due to being unable to tell the difference between people’s words and thoughts at a young age, she would inadvertently expose people’s secrets, leading her to be ridiculed by her classmates and even abandoned by her parents. This had led her to become closed off from others in fear of hurting herself and others. This all changes, however, when she transfers into a new high school and meets Yoshihisa Manabe, a dim-witted boy with a perverted imagination. Unfazed by Haruka’s ability to read minds, Yoshihisa offers her his friendship and vows to stand by her no matter what. Together, they join their school’s ESP Research Society.

Kotoura-san School Romantic Comedy Manga Gets TV Anime

Mitsudomoe staff animates Enogizu’s 4-panel manga about girl who can read minds


[details=spoiler]For something labeled as a “comedy”, most of the first episode is extremely emotional. I lost it a couple of times! But I’m glad it evened out in the end. I am finally catching up on my watching and I like this one very much so far. Yes, it does turn out to be a comedy.
Thank goodness! :lol: :lol: :lol:[/details]

This show is awesome, especially Kotoura and Manabe. Hopefully this is one of those shows Sentai’s quietly keeping secret. Chris Patton would be perfect for the the little guy

That would be awesome - on both counts! :woohoo:
