    This was a great find Volumes are currently being released in English by Viz the original run ended in Japan in 2010 I believe though you can find fan scanlations online of the whole A very smooth, linear read considering the post apocalyptic, alternate timelines theme it deals with, which I put down as a strength because of the clarity this style lends to the story later on, despite a rather generic start this volume.Considering the decline in popularity that eventually led the series to be wrapped up not too rushed I enjoyed the conclusion in fact however, I wonder if it was the ambitious turn the mangaka took that wasn t well received The story bears similarities to Gantz and the Cell arc in Dragon Ball, and the power system is admirably flexible without resorting to convenient obscurities One concern might be the lack of sustained humour and running gags which might be a significant reason for the series going out of popularity compare the later Shounen Jump success Beelzebub , which gives the series a bit of a brooding seinen like air once in a while, though there s a central romance developed if in a low key shounen manga way at a decent pace and some of the child characters do tend to brighten things up Maybe timeline shifting stories can t escape this even with ample humour because they straddl...

    Listen I wanted to like Psyren, I really did I was really taken in by its setting made interesting by the mystery But I m starting to think that the shonen market is all about the vending machine effect, where what s predictable sells This made me a little sad because the author had a lot to say about books he reads and I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt that he has the taste to pull off a good story Yet though either the pressure of his publisher or overabundance of characters to lasso a plot around, Psyren falls into the broad demographic of drab shonen that doesn t impress me.If it has one thing going for it it s the premise Psyren s setting and stories are nestled between the venn diagram of Bleach and the Matrix Except all of the action is Bleach and none of the thinking is the Matrix Yet the mystery that s initially set up of the contemporary world being so different from the Psyren wasteland was really compelling and hooked me to the story I was at first impressed with the characters fixing time in the past present and presen...

    A string of unexplainable disappearances and rumors of a strange secret society don t even begin to prepare high school delinquent Ageha for what await after he finds a mysterious red phone card It s difficult to get into much detail about the start of Psyren without major spoilers, so I ll simply say that the premise is imaginative and compelling and the manga makes a strong impression right away.The concentration here is on establishing the world and core concepts while keeping the pace up through a lot of tense action, so the characters aren t terribly deep so far That s easily forgiven this early though and there are some hints dropped that indicate their personalities will be fully explored soon There are numerous directions the overarc...

    A very interesting and exciting manga The art has its ups and downs, but overall is pretty good I found this book to be surprisingly emotional, especially for just the first volume.After a slowish start, things really pick up by the second chapter, and it really never slows down after that.I was pleased to see that this book wasn t ridiculously violent, yet it certainly is dark, and has it s fair share of death Was also glad to see that it didn t have fan service which is a common aspect of many manga Also a huge plus for this volume was the main protagonists respectability Ageha is a kind hearted young man who is ready and willing to risk his life even for someone who blew him off and had no desire for a...

    This is the review for the entire series One of the better mangas I think it s one of the few stories out there that actually does time travel correctly Probably because the only way to do time travel correctly is if you travel FORWARD That way the future can change without the worr...

    Psyren combined an excellent time travelling tales that surely captivated the reader It is funny to read and make us want to continue explore the story from beginning until the end The only drawbacks in this series is the fight somewhat ending so qui...

    This reminded me of Bleach and Gantz Obviously, since it s only volume 1, there are a lot of questions left unanswered Can t wait to read volume 2.

    Actually, this is as good as noragami.

    Before I start I m putting the spoiler tag but I m not sure what I m writing would qualify as spoilers I won t cover plot points, but I will talk about character traits history.I m torn with this book It s an interesting concept The art is fantastic It does a really good job conveying action and the monsters that show up late in the game are very well drawn I do have a lot of problems with this though The characters are incredibly generic looking They look like every other main character in every manga There just isn t anything unique about them I have a super hard time empathizing with the main characters They just throw you into the story You barely get any backstory for them I know that a the male main character fixes people s problems usually involving beating the snot out of someone for money and his mom is dead b the female character is quiet and creepy and knows a lot about this game c minor male character goes to high school and is dangerous Since I know nothing about them at this point it s hard to care about what happens to them Also that ending Bringing that element into a story is just lazy in my opinion.The world of the game is super interesting though You don t get many answers about it but I m guessing that will be explained later I want to know exactly how this was made and what made those monsters I mentioned.I don t not recommend this because it...

    It s been than a decade since Psyren was first published, so I ve decided to purchase this manga series as part of my collection And I don t want to lie but until now I m still hoping for an anime adaptation Despite its deep or serious plot compared to your typical...
