An offshoot of the Vocaloid franchise under the name "Kagerou Project" that spans across several media.
The Kagerou Project (a.k.a. "Kagerou Daze") is a series of Vocaloid songs created by Jin (a.k.a. "Shizen no Teki-P") that were released at the same time as a light novel series, which were later adapted into a manga and anime.
The stories center around a small group of friends who have mysterious eyes that can grant them unique superpowers. Shintaro Kisaragi, a hikkikomori-NEET, ends up drawn into their world after being forced to go outside for the first time in a while, and helping them stop a robbery at a department store. Meanwhile, Shintaro's younger sister Momo has her own troubles trying to avoid the spotlight while dealing with her own power that makes her incredibly popular.
