In the year 2038, a white light descended on the center of Tokyo and stole the memories of over one million people. The cause of this horrible incident was not determined, and no cure was to be found. The government formed a separate city beneath Tokyo to house and care for the victims of the incident and branded them as "KIDz." Regardless of their age, they truly are like children, and they must be retaught everything they once knew. Noa Ikurumi, who lives in this isolated society, is just taking one day at a time and dreaming of finally being allowed to go back out into the world. But Noa's life will once again change drastically on the day that he is taken hostage by a terrorist with some surprising information about his identity...

Don't let my score fool you, there's a very good reason this thing didn't get the 9 overall that it should have. The mangaka rushed the damned story. Overall though I think it deserves a read if you can't find anything else.

Its a great manga, but story arcs that should have taken place over 2-3 chapters, ended up taking place over 1-2 pages. cleverly thought out plot twists that should have been high points in the story, felt like cruel jokes by the author because of how rushed they were. They give no backstory to the tricks at all, read more

I, personally, have never read anything quite like this. It’s very creative on the author’s part.

The story begins with a flash of light. In the year 2038, downtown Tokyo experienced a large blast of light that plunged its civilization into complete chaos. Those under the range of the blast suffered complete memory loss apart from speech. Anyone carrying some form of identification was left with a name, but others like small children, were left with nothing. No memories of family, friends, home, nothing. The solution produced by the Japanese government was to create an underground facility for the victims while researching developments toward a read more

What starts out as an ordinary day in Japan turns into a complete contastrophe when, all of a sudden, the sky fills up with a blinding light that wipes away the memory of all those who see it. Over one million people are affected – children, teenagers, adults, evern the eldery are missing memories of their life (yet somehow still can speak Japanese). In response to this, the Japanese government starts shoving all the “Kidz” (the term used to describe the people who lost their memories, given to them to reflect their child-like thinking) into an underground society, under the assumption that they were dangerous read more

If you are looking for a new manga to read, try this out. You won't regret it.

The plot line was unique: A bomb had caused 1 million people to forget their memories. Thus, they were demeaned. Add in the brilliant main character, Noa, who is a genius and at the center of all this, and his fight to gain the rights of the Kid'z (ones with memories wiped) against the Adults (the ones with memories still). And there are so many plot twists, I couldn't stop. I finished the entire manga in a matter of 2-3 hours.

The art was done well, but overall the story read more

Manga: Death Note
They both remind me strongly of each other and at the same time they are completely diffrent. Both main characters (Noa and Light) are both Geni, they both have someone who they fight(L and the weird Cop) they have females who follow there orders, and a gigantic plans for world change. Yep, and at the same time the feeling is quite diffrent, but I think you will like one if you like the other.

Manga: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
zennou no noa haven't got too far for scanlation but both of the story have the same kind of ideal, a boy as a main character and intelligent, wanted to change the world with their power, a girl who would support that main character... Noa and Lelouch have the same kind of sanity ( i guess but no offense to any of the fan out there okay~~) and characteristic. so if anyone who love to read/watch either of these manga are welcome to read the other one if you haven't ...!

Manga: Lost + Brain
In both stories, the way protagonist tries to change the world is similar.

Manga: No.6
- They both start off in a closed off place/region where everything is being controlled and is considered "perfect". - The main characters both know that where they live is a false utpoia - They run into a wanted criminal and end up saving them and by doing this it changes their lives forever...
