Twenty years from now, in early summer at Amizawa Village...
18-year-old Ebihara Chinami emits electrical waves when she becomes distressed. Due to this, she cannot use electronics such as PCs and cellphones very well. Her power is so strong that it nearly crashed the plane her family was on by causing instrument malfunctions.
Her power leads her to transfer schools frequently. As usual, on the first day of school, Chinami is a little nervous, causing her classmates' cellphones to glitch and electronics to react to her.
The more nervous she becomes, the worse the situation gets, so she begins to take notes on where and how badly the electronics react to her. She eventually meets Kotaro from the science club, who is interested in experimenting on her; Yumi, a classmate and shrine maiden with the same power as she; and Sonomi. They refer to the power as "TYPE-E."
What they don`t know is that a secret organization is after Chinami's power.
There will be a moment when many lives will be saved by Chinami's power. However, at the same time, someone will be watching her...
Check out what else is aired during this season.
Original Concept and Script by Sakaki Ichirou
There's this cute shy school girl who spends her shole day surrounded by malfunctioning cellphones computer monitors, etc but beyond establishing her as a sympathetic character, the pilot doesn't really accomplish much, except to show that she wants to keep a low profile, and the science whiz has gotten curious.
An excellent twist on the superpower story with a person who is a personal EMP to anything electronic gadget. In our world which has gone gadget crazy this is a hilarious concept. If the massive blackout we had years ago or global warming hasn't taught us, maybe in some funny way, Code-E will. Our dependance on electricity and gadgets may not be good for us.
Cute characters, nice animation, relaxed pacing. the first episode introduced the main characters nicely -- Showing some of their traits, but keeping the "super power" hidden. Definitely something to look forward to in the next episode.
