Synopsis

Out of the blue, a beautiful girl asks Kakeru to run away with her. It turns out that the girl is on the run from a shadowy government organization intent on using her psychic abilities for its own nefarious ends. But why does she need Kakeru’s help? Could it be that he has secret powers, too?

*At the time of this writing there are 18 chapters scanlated and that is what I'm basing this review on.*
*Despite its name, Psycho Busters has no affiliation with Ghost Busters.*

Story 8
This isn't a cheesy, completely unrealistic, children's hour manga, don't worry. Psycho Busters mixes up the old "escaped secret lab experiments" premise by making the main character Kakeru just a normal guy that gets caught up with the escapees instead of an escapee himself. There are so many mysterious aspects of each of the characters and their powers but none of the mysteries are or become annoying read more

This was a great manga and i'm extremely anticipating the rest of the chapters.
My enjoyment was 10.
It is a very action fast-paced story giving off a apocalyptic feeling like Psyren and Alive: Final Evolution with a toss up of love in it.
Kakeru a somewhat socially withdrawn gamer boy, playing and creating videos games to pass most of his time being bullied by his sisters, dreaming one day to be a hero that saves the damsel in distress like in a video game.
While his dad is working overseas his mom and sisters go off on vacation leaving him with free leisurely time for his games.

This story was very good. the main character may seem like a wimp at first but as you read along you slowly see how strong he becomes.
The main character Kakeru is a very nice person that cares a lot about others instead of himself.
This is an amazing story and you should read it too!!!!!

I first found this manga just browsing the isles at a bookstore. The cover looked cool and I'm into the whole psychics and supernatural genre, so I was like "Why not?" I didn't think it'd turn out to be this awesome.

Story: 9
I've heard of and read books about psychis escaping from an evil lab, but the story was much more than that. Psycho Busters added interesting twists and placed a huge amount of the plot on friendship and making relationships. How Kakeru was involved, how he was accepted, how the groups' bond and trust played a key factor in their saving the world- it was read more

People with supernatural abilities, fighting for survival. Both have a hint of romance that something might happen between the two main characters. Also faced in life and death situations, the main characters both have a peculiar ability.
This is very similar in the way that they both revolve around young students with exceptional talents and their adventures! There is also a romance going on between the main characters. Overall it gives off the same vibe! If you loved this one most definitely you will love this one too!
The MC meets a person with power of the opposite gender. As they interact they begin to stumble upon their hidden memories. The powers themselves are ranked.
Both involve a protagonist gaining supernatural abilities - and a whole cast of allies and enemies to boot. Neither are the most original manga around, but they're fun reads nonetheless.
Both is full of adventures and excitement!! Both in thier own unique ways but are similar at the same time. Both main characters have the same goal: To protect and love the ones around them and release thier inner power!! ^__^
it has the same plot both take place in a school and have children with special abilities.
