However, when the comet passes by it disposes of some dust-like particles on the planet, which results in a small percentage of pre-adolescents humans who have inhaled the dust to manifest strange but supernatural abilities when they reach the age of puberty.
However, the story of the anime television series mainly focuses on an ordinary teenager, Yuu Otosaka. Yuu is just like an average high school-going student along with being extremely charming and intelligent. Nonetheless, he carries a secret that no one knows- as he has the power to control human minds who are in his vicinity and make them do whatever he desires for around five seconds.
Yuu also manages to successfully keep his superhuman ability under the radar from his family, friends, and other peers. He mainly uses this power to maintain a perfect grade which results in him getting admission to one of Japan's most prestigious schools.
As the series progresses, Yuu is abruptly caught red-handed using his power by another character named, Nao Tomori who also possesses superhuman ability to make herself invisible for a limited amount of time. Nao pressurizes Yuu and his younger sister, Ayumi to transfer to another school named, Hoshinoumi Academy where we meet other teenagers who also have unexplainable powers.
