Anime of Hajime Segawa's science fantasy manga to premiere on July 11

The official website for the Tokyo ESP anime began streaming an ad for the series on Friday.

Hajime Segawa's original science fantasy manga begins with Rinka (Ibuki Kido), an extremely poor high school girl who lives with just her father in modern Tokyo. One day, she is going home from school when she chases a "flying penguin" to the top of New Tokyo Tower — only to have "fish swimming in the air" suddenly appear before her. One of the fish goes through Rinka and gives her extraordinary powers beyond those of normal humans, particularly the ability to slip through solid objects.

The singer Faylan will perform the opening theme song "Tokyo Zero Hearts," while the group Yousei Teikoku will perform the ending theme song, "Guze Άργυρóϛ."
