Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. Hope everyone has had an amazing week! My week’s been pretty good! Been a while since I reviewed an anime. A lot of you guys don’t know but Charlotte was he first anime I reviewed and I realized that the review sucked! So there are few reviews that I am gonna redo and delete the old ones! So here we go!
This supernatural comedy-drama, Charlotte, was written by Jun Maeda and illustrated by Haruka Komowata.
No. of episodes: 12
The main characters include:

When a comet called Charlotte passes by the planet Earth every 75 years it sprays some magical dust which is inhaled by pre-adolescent causing them to obtain super natural powers at reaching puberty. Each persons power being different from the other. And each power having its own limitation. The story follows Yuu Otosaka who has the power to possess anyone’s body for 5 seconds . One day, a high school girl “Nao Tomori”, approaches him and convinces him to join her school. This school is accepting to all the supernatural powers that these adolescent children contain unlike the society. As they begin saving all the students with this problem one by one, Yuu decides to keep his power a secret from his sister “Ayumi Otasaka”. But as soon as the dust reaches her as well everything goes wrong.
This anime is not actually very unique in the sense that everyone has powers, everyone keeps it a secret and everyone has limitations. The characters themselves aren’t very unique either compared to most anime’s I see. I must applaud the animation and the quality of the anime and such a fun opening. The anime is great to watch when you want to pass some time. It’s nothing to really fanboy/fangirl over. If I must say, the anime is quite dry in it’s whole plot. There wasn’t ENOUGH drama for me. The anime had its ups and downs. It is quite entertaining throughout but honestly not even worth recommending. It is a good anime but I guess only a one time watch. Not my worst, not even close to my best. More negatives than positives definitely. Overall below average.
I would give this anime 3/5 stars.
