** Some people at the underground esper fight are Hanao [[Film/ChildsPlay "Chucky"]] Chiaki (a little girl who looks like Chucky the doll in a porcelain doll's dress who warns Rinka she'll need to metaphorically kill herself to survive), [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarePants "Sponge Tom"]] (a middle-aged man in a burger(?) costume), Django Gordoma (likely named after [[Film/DjangoUnchained Django]] and [[VideoGame/HalfLife Gordon]] who share the last name [[MeaningfulName "Freeman"]]), a woman who looks a lot like [[GalaxyExpress999 Maetel]], and a guy who is dressed like [[Comicbook/GreenLantern Green Wantan]] (apparently the baddies choose the fighters' names and costumes (or [[MsFanService lack thereof]])).

* AndTheAdventureContinues: The anime ends this way, just in case it wasn't renewed for a second season. [[spoiler:The Professor's plan turns multiple people across Tokyo to become espers, causing the crime rate to rise exponentially. This justifies the need for heroic espers like Rinka and her allies to reveal themselves to the public and fight the good fight.]]



** "Only ESP can stop ESP" is always used seriously. Any time the police and the espers fight, the espers easily win. How's a pistol or crowbar supposed to help you against people who can teleport and cause explosions with their bare hands?



* SequelHook: [[spoiler: Ren sneezes an coughs up one of her special ice cubes at the end of chapter 76.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Pretty much all the "lame" esper powers are portrayed as this. While the powers themselves may give no obvious advantage in a fight, many, many characters get around this through intelligent and imaginative uses of their powers coupled with liberal use of firearms.

* ArrestedForHeroism: Rinka gets arrested in Chapter 52 stopping the hospital bomber because she's still wanted for her attack on the statesman. [[spoiler:The CIA has the warrants retracted by framing it on an fictional transformation esper before she gets a life-time sentence.]]

* EarnYourBadEnding: Everyone at Ares who had a hand in the mess that is the Tokyo Esp event gets his or her due punishment.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Everyone who deserves a happy ending in chapter 76 gets one.



* MisplacedRetribution: Very narrowly averted in chapter 76. As a result of the hundreds of thousands of casualties thanks to rampage of Ares and the professor, relatives and friends of the victims stage riots, forcing the Japanese government to detain all Espers, again, holding them captive three years for their own safety, bar a small group that was literally ReassignedToAntarctica.



* PowerIncontinence: Until an esper adjusts to their power, they suffer from this whenever they are awake. [[spoiler:The esper prison exploits this weakness by keeping especially dangerous espers asleep at all times]]. Ren Jomaku has this particularly bad.
