Many years after a great tragedy killed 90% of the people in Japan, three girls arrive in the ruins of Tokyo. In the devastated capital, their unusually clean clothes set them apart. But that's not the only strange thing about them - they also each wield supernatural powers. They call themselves "Coppelion," and are on a mission to save the people of Tokyo.

'Coppelion' is a Japanese seinen manga series written and illustrated by Tomonori Inoue. An anime adaption by GoHands began airing on October 2, 2013 in Japan with a simulcast airing on the same day in Asia on Animax Asia.

But why aren't they wearing any protection against radiation?
