What is the Charlotte anime about?
Directed by Yoshiyuki Asai, the 2015 Japanese anime, Charlotte, follows the series protagonist, Yuu Otosaka, a high school student who possesses the power to take over people's minds and bodies. Unbeknownst to him, he isn't the only character with an ability.
That said, the ability lasts for only five seconds. Nevertheless, Yuu manages to utilize the ability by using it to cheat his way to the top of the class and later at an entrance test at a prestigious high school. All in all, he is quite a dishonest person.
While he is a charming person and could have gotten a girlfriend by himself, he continued to use his ability to manipulate a girl into liking him. Fortunately, he was stopped by the headstrong student council president from Hoshinoumi Academy, Nao Tomori.
Tomori sees through his deceit and catches him in the act of cheating while giving a test. Through coercion and some help from fellow student council member Joujirou Takajou, Nao later convinces Yuu to transfer to Hoshinoumi Academy and become part of the student council. Hoshinoumi Academy was secretly an institution created for students who possessed supernatural abilities, such as those possessed by Yuu Otosaka.
As for the student council, they serve the purpose of locating people who abuse their powers for their own advantage. Thus, Yuu Otosaka joins the student council members and assists them in their council affairs.
The group identifies and locates new ability users who could potentially cause harm to people. However, during their investigation of their abilities, the group often ends up entangling itself in matters far more complicated than they could ever imagine.
