Family can be troublesome, annoying, and hard to get along with. This is especially true for the adopted Taki, who is expected by her mother to watch out for her younger sister Olivia. Their relationship begins to change when both of them are involved in an accident that gives them superpowers, or Kung Fu Telekinesis as Olivia calls it. While she revels in this, Taki freaks out before looking at things realistically. She immediately understands some of the dangers, pegging out her best friend's father as the culprit and the bad guy. Family problems motivate their new enemies, making them dangerous, not to mention being backed by a power hungry organization. Takio has both a funny and a serious side to it. The constant back and forth speech bubbles between the two girls is both amusing and revealing. More is learned about their personalities from their interactions than in any other way. They are two very different individuals, and as such, react just like any pair of sisters would...they bicker. Their lives are not easy ones, and things are about to get weird on top of it. The style is skewed, slightly off-kilter, and explosive in colour, which is a fair representation of their lives right now. Family may sometimes give them a headache, but they are there for each other, and their love will give them strength.
