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!

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 light and humorous. I randomly ...

I initially started this manga in middle school and never got around to finishing it (though I had no right to be reading this at ages 12 and 13 with the blood and fanservice). I tried to finish it again as an adult, but Idk if I ever got around to it. I finally finished it tonight and here's what I think:

Good: Art, the action, the character writing and development,

Bad: The fan disservice (Mai's fourteen what the actual shit. The last page was awkward to read), the weird comments Intetsu's roomate makes about Mai (like previously stated she's fourteen what the shit) the racism towards ...

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 ...
