Esper Mami (エスパー魔美 Esupā Mami ?) is a manga created by Fujiko F. Fujio in 1977 and serialized in Shōnen Big Comic. It was later adapted into an anime series.



Mami Sakura used to be a normal junior high school student, but she happened to acquire supernatural powers. Using her powers and with the help of her best friend, Mr. Takahata, she solves mysterious occurrences. When she senses someone needs help, she uses the "Teleportation Gun" and transports herself there. She then saves the people in trouble with her psychic powers, such as telekinesis and telepathy.

Her powers are awakened by an unexpected coincidence and she uses the power for acts of kindness afterward. She is bright, but careless and rather meddlesome. She isn't very good at studying or housework. Her father is an artist, and sometimes paints nude pictures of her. She wants to be a painter like her father.
