Sounds cool. You should definitely remember it. I've got an idea for a future TV show myself.
Oh, that's pretty good.

Their most basic ability is that each weapon can by summoned at will by simply snapping one's fingers. Originally Posted by Karamazov Why is it a side-effect of their powers? Their powers are essentially created from the purified essence of Phantoms. It becomes less pure as it's used, until one day it becomes too impure in which it attempts to corrupt the user, causing him/her to 'awaken'.
At this stage, there are two options:
- Allow the phantom's essence to corrupt you. There's a high chance of death, and if you do survive, your humanity is lost in the process.
- Fight back mentally and physically. By conquering it, you'll become even more powerful, but your lifespan has been shortened, the length depends on how much corruption you endured during the awakening. Some (around 3%) of your humanity will have been lost.
...That's what I have so far.

My only question would be why do so many characters use swords if guns exist in your universe? The weapons are defined by the character's personality. Originally Posted by Karamazov Why do they become corrupt? It's a side effect of their powers.
Why do they become corrupt?
...I don't really have a clue how espers can be chosen though, maybe something like they have to prove themselves?
Oh, and the more the overuse their powers, the more they become corrupt. Meaning they'll lose their humanity from overuse.
Random Pokemon fact: Psychic Types are called "Esper Types" in Japan.
Also the whole Esper concept seems kinda reminiscent of "Heroes".

Why not write a story?
It doesn't necessarily have to be a TV show or manga. :P
I'd like to watch it. Though I will admit, it does seem to be a common premise. (Just replace "Phantoms" with "Dementors" and "Espers" with "Wizards" and you got Harry Potter.) But if there were interesting characters and a captivating plot, I'm sure it can be a really unique and interesting show.
I, personally wouldn't buy it. Oak is weird.
I think it would. Older fans love looking at things at a deeper level.
It would to me, at least. I'm a sucker for backstories.
I don't intend to convince you that a drawing is any age.
^ Or so they say. You will never convince me that May is 10.
Are we talking anime? If so that's really creepy because all of the trainers are like 10-12 years old.
Too bad this was before it could get Solid Rock as an ability :<
You know it's happening.
^ I know
