The starry-eyed "Queen of Tokiwadai", Shokuhou Misaki not only possesses formidable psychic power as the 5th ranked Level 5 Esper of Academy City but also controls the most influential faction of Tokiwadai Middle School with deep roots in not just the school but other facilities and institutions across Academy City. With these vast connections, her genius intellect, and her power of complete control over the mind, Shokuhou Misaki works within the shadows to investigate the various morally-questionable research projects conducted by Academy City higher-ups for reasons known only to herself.
Her power is Level 5 Mental Out which allows her to control and manipulate the minds of others. This includes feats like telepathy, brainwashing, illusions, memory altering extraction and erasure, reading into other people's thoughts, control over the entire body, and psychometry. She uses various remote controls she keeps in her bag for the needed precision in being able to use her power.
Those under the influence of Mental Out have the same star-shaped patterns on their eyes as hers.
This power comes from her control over secretions of chemicals within the brain via manipulating the various moistures inside the organ. Her power only works on humans and is unable to affect machines or animals. Also since her power involves affecting the bio-electricity within the brain as well, sufficiently powerful Electric Espers like Misaka, another Level 5, can resist her power.

Misaki was the center behind Project Exterior which involved cutting away a section of her brain, cultivating the tissues, and then enlarging it into a giant brain called Exterior, which allows full access of Misaki's Mental Out to anyone hooked up to the brain.
While others can use her powers with it, when Misaki herself tunes into the brain and adds it to her own power, her Mental Out gains a tremendous boost, allowing her to control thousands of people at once within a several kilometer radius.
After Misaki discovered the horrible ulterior motives behind both Project Exterior and Project Dolly that she was involved in, she single-handedly sabotaged the entire project, brainwashed and silenced the entire research staff even with their countermeasures they had to her mental powers, and took over Exterior for her own personal use.
Kihara Gensei takes over Exterior giving him the same power as Misaki and compounded with several other Esper abilities with the use of Level Upper, making him immune to Misaki's own Mental Out and with the obvious advantage in combat. He effortlessly breezed through all her traps she had set up in the facility as he pursued her to acquire the access code needed to unlock the full power of Exterior that only she knew.
Misaki outwits him by unexpectedly having brainwashed herself prior, swapping her knowledge of the access code for unlocking Exterior's max output for it's self-destruct code.
The brainwashing also helped in making Misaki really seem like she was all out of options because technically, she really thought she was as she even wiped out her memory of swapping out codes as well.
With that, she removed herself from the burden of keeping Exterior a secret, took out Gensei who felt tge full effect of it's self-destruction being sent back to him from being connected to it at the time, and removing the cornerstone behind his Level 6 Phase shift project all at once.
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.

Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.

Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.

Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
