Putting another shameless 5 star here. This is a PSA, I'll delete later. Basically ESPER is on a temporary hiatus. I am trying to get Knights Multiverse, my other work, to catch up with its current point in the story. When I do, I will come back to finish the second volume of ESPER. Sounds good? Good.


Author Here: Note that I do not have a set writing schedule, as I have three stories that I work on simultaneously, ESPER, Knights Multiverse, and Oh!. Even still, I try to update at least every week or every other week. Oh! is currently the furthest behind out of all three. Also, I do read every review and comment, and I appreciate them all, thank you!


This is going places!! I hope it goes on longer!! Here's my highs and lows. Highs: - Great characters/character development - Amazing plot, I'm starting to see how all of the characters have their own sort of story, waiting on seeing Kasumi's backstory, and more on Yumi! - Originality, I can see that the author watches a LOT of anime and it shows! But Esper doesn't bite off of any other series or story, it's so fresh and original and I LOVE that! Lows - Description. Its a little dry when it comes to describing certain scenes that leaves me wanting a bit more, but that's fine because it sort of matches the mood that the story gives off. The dryness matches the dark mood. But I still could ask for more. -Hashimoto Ryoto. Need I really explain this?


All of the characters in this story I love it from the tragic backstory to the esper and etc.... This story is obviously a W Im gonna read this all the way through and O yea im waiting on some characters to return straight W 🤘🏾🤘🏾🤘🏾🤘🏾
