Anime Description: Kimagure Orange Road

Kyosuke Kasuga seems like your ordinary 15-year old, except for the fact that he has an amazing secret. Kyosuke actually has telekinetic powers, but he tries hard not to show this power to anyone. Moving to a new city, he becomes smitten with a girl named Madoka Ayukawa who doesn't exactly reciprocate. However, another girl, the slightly childish Hikaru Hiyama also has feelings for Kyosuke.

Despite this normal love triangle, the lives of these characters are anything BUT normal. Kyosuke's family deals with and specializes in all kinds of paranormal phenomenon, and none of them have any problem displaying their powers in public. Can Kyosuke keep him and his family's powers a secret? And most of all, what kind of resolution will come out of the love triangle between Kyosuke, Madoka, and Hikaru?
