Tokyo ESP (東京ESP) is a Japanese manga series by Hajime Segawa. It began serialization in the April 2010 issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Shōnen Ace magazine. It follows a high school girl named Rinka Urushiba, who lives with her father in poor conditions, leading her to work part-time. Her life changes when she gains the ability to use extrasensory perception (ESP). An anime television series adaptation is scheduled to air from July 2014.
Tokyo ESP begins with Rinka Urushiba as a fairly normal high school girl, though she is a bit poor and her only family is her father. This forces her to work as a waitress after high school to raise money for them to secure rent and food. One day, she sees a penguin and some glowing fish swimming through the sky. Rinka might have thought it was a hallucination if there had not been another witness with her, a boy from her school with a strangely scratched-up face. Contact with a fish causes her to pass out, and when she awakens, she has developed the power to move through inanimate objects such as the floor of her apartment. She meets a fellow high school student named Kyotaro Azuma, who has the ability to teleport. The two of them use their ESP powers to take on individuals who have decided to use them for evil. However, there is an organization that plans for a bigger scheme to secure utopia with their ranks consisting of strong ESP fighters and users.
