"A Senior high school pupil Ko-Ichi is awakened by a distant voice asking him to fight against the evil force in the name of Babel II. Later a young woman tells him that he is a Psychist, a man of super human strength. Later he is shown a display of his awesome powers when he is attacked by the evil Wong and his henchmen. An array of powerful demons appear and a mighty battle ensues which sets the scene for the series. Can Ko-Ichi discover the truth behind his powers and his destiny?"
"Babel II features computer animation and excellent quality dubbing and is based on an original manga."

Young Ko-ichi has strange dreams and hears voices in his head. Soon he is battling a group of Psychics who are bent on world domination, and in the process discovers his own formidable powers. Obvious wish-fulfilment stuff for studious schoolboys, and a more than usually typical piece of Japanese animation. I vaguely recollect seeing these episodes in Japanese. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about either. (see also article in ANIME FX no.8) [Geoff Cowie]
