By E. A. Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on Feb. 20 2012
Format: Paperback
Where is Psyren? What IS Psyren? And what is Psyren's connection to our own troubled world?

Those are the questions that litter "Psyren Volume 1," one of the few manga I was eagerly awaiting even before it arrived on American shores. It's hard to see why this series has been completely overshadowed by lesser manga/anime series -- it has a deliciously nightmarish world where ordinary people must fight to survive, a mysterious figure pulling the strings, and a rough-diamond hero.

Strange things are happening in Yoshina Ageha's life: Masked apparitions, ringing phones, and his old friend Amamiya pleading "Save me!"... just before she goes missing. In fact, a lot of people are going missing, and the only clue Ageha has is a calling card with "Psyren" printed on it. But using the card only attracts more trouble -- and Ageha ends up being whisked into a strange desert world with ruined buildings.

And after monstrous creatures kill most of the people there, Ageha joins forces with an exhausted Amamiya and a very tall, tough teenager named Asaga. Their only hope for survival is to find the gate leading out of Psyren and back to their own world. But when Ageha learns what Psyren truly is, he realizes that there may be no escape for anyone...

"Psyren Volume 1" is one of the best introductions to a manga series that I have ever seen. It introduces the first three main characters, it's got plenty of wall-smashing action, and author Toshiaki Iwashiro tosses a KILLER twist into one of the chapters. I won't reveal what it is, but it adds an entirely new spin on a seemingly ordinary "through the looking glass" tale.

It's also a very lean, fast-moving story, with compact fight scenes that feel grittier and more realistic than most shonen series.

I really loved this first volume of Psyren and I can't wait to read more. Not a lot of people know about this series but I really recommend you check it out if you're a fan of these kinds of manga! Looking forward to Volume 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing series June 17 2013
By spenser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At first i was skeptical because it sounded so cliche and boring, but actually the whole series turns out to be interesting and the story just keeps getting thicker and more developed the more the story goes on. The characters are not boring, even the girls in this series are badass. They don't cry and whine when ever somebody gets a scratch on their knees and their not helpless. The powers of Psi are well developed and you can tell the author put much though into these. If you want a good story, awesome characters, beautiful artwork, and you don't want to read a super violent manga like Berserk or Gantz, then this series will be a good pick for you.
