    Episode 1

    On the run.

    So it begins with the Kirishima brothers, who have psychic powers and are dangerous, escaping prison and they find themselves backed into a corner seeing that they are fugitives. And they show why they are dangerous when that unruly customer at a restaurant crosses the line. And then there's another pair of brothers who are out to get them. Pretty much, this is all about the action, drama, and thrills as the plot is pretty much non-existent so far, and the storytelling has just about no substance at this point, but at the very least the stuff that made the use of CGI better suited is done nicely, and while I'm generally not high on CGI, at least the studio is doing it right for this show.

    So with that, as always the trial period rules are in effect.

      There's no such thing as a miracle.

      And now, the show does its setup as it turns out the brothers were in stasis for 15 years and during that time, World War III happened, and they think they are in the year 2026 instead of 2041. In the meantime, they run into Mick, a guy who is said to miraculously heal any injury with his psychic powers. But in truth, that's a scam as the only reason why those patients feel better is because of that chick Kimie's power to make others feel alright while the injury remains with her mind control ability. There's definitely some big conspiracy going on.
