Synopsis

Mai is silly, giggly, and flirtatious - just like any other cute fourteen-year-old girl. As far as Mai is concerned, her telekinetic abilities are just good for practical jokes. But when the secret organization known as the Wisdom Alliance tries to exploit her as a weapon to enslave the world, her father puts his life on the line to protect her. And Mai soon learns the hard way that her powers are no joke, but capable of unbelievable, deadly force!

Well, I first got to say that the saying "Don't judge a book by it's cover" is actually true. When I first clicked it out of curiosity in http://www.mangafox.com, I looked at the picture for the cover, and the closed the window right away. I was one of those people who would first look at the picture, and if it looked old, or wasn't there at all, I wouldn't even bother to look at the description of the manga.

However, later that day, I somehow wanted to read something new, and something that had some supernatural powers involved... and one that wasn't all that read more

Mai the Psychic girl without a doubt is one the the strangest manga series I have encountered so far, and there are times where it doesn’t make much sense to me either. And I have came arcoss some pretty strange series that at least make better sense than what Mai tries to tell.

Story: The story starts off pretty decent. You have Mai who happens to be a pretty normal kid except she happens to have psychic powers. An evil organization working behind the sense trying to collect all the kids in the world with psychic powers for their master plan. Eventually the organization goes after read more

Story: Overall the story has an excellent plot with a lot of tensions and build ups. The beginning will give you the impression that the story is light and easygoing. But things will turn around and becomes dark as the story goes on. The Wisdom Alliance, the main villain in this manga, is similar to NWO except they want to destroy the world. They want to capture Mai and use her for their plans. The main plot of the story is about Mai trying to escape the Wisdom Alliance and live a normal life.

I don't know how to put a lot of words for read more
