    Hajime Segawa's original science fantasy manga begins with Rinka, 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."

    Segawa launched the "afterschool psychic action" series in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in 2010, shortly after ending The Enchained Spiritual Beast Ga-Rei supernatural action series. Kadokawa published the ninth compiled book volume of Tokyo ESP last December.

    The anime will premiere on July 11.
