Shonen Sunday TV Anime Cover

A list of Zettai Karen Children manga chapters, written and illustrated by Takashi Shiina. It has been published weekly in Weekly Shōnen Sunday, since 2005. The manga contains three girls containing a great power which they can be angels or demons. As the series progresses, The Children and Minamoto must deal with several enemy organizations, each with conflicted views regarding the role of espers in the world, including "P.A.N.D.R.A.", a cadre of rogue espers determined to wage war against the rest of mankind, the "Black Phantom", a mercenary organization who brainwashes espers into living tools of destruction and the "Normal People", composed solely of non-esper individuals who view espers only as a threat to be vanquished.

Shiina developed the series out of a short story he had written in special issues of Shōnen Sunday. The series was essentially the same, except for the fact that Kōichi Minamoto was named "Hikaru Minamoto", and he also had psychic powers. Takashi stated the first 4 chapters were part of a "short term serialization". Thanks to those, the series gained popularity. They are part of the official cannon, but the numeration started from volume 2.

In every volume, there is an omake showing the characters in other types of situations. In Volume 1 there is no omake, but the pilot chapter.

For publicity reasons, there are volumes sold as special editions, including gifts or exclusive artwork.

Chapters 291 and 292 were released by Weekly Shōnen Sunday as "The Esper Boy has Returned Home (8)" and "Tomorrow Never Dies (2)". In volume 31 this error was fixed.
