Ageha Yoshina is a self-confident high school student who helps others for a fee. On his way back from a job, he finds a strange calling card with the word "Psyren" imprinted left behind in a phone booth and decides to keep it, unaware of its purpose. The very next day, Ageha discovers that his classmate Sakurako Amamiya has the exact same calling card in her possession. When he questions her, Sakurako asks him to save her, signaling the day his troubles begin.

Confused by the circumstances of this encounter, Ageha realizes something is wrong when Sakurako goes missing. In an attempt to figure out what is happening, he decides to call the number provided on the calling card and is asked a series of questions by a mysterious voice, ending with a final, cryptic question: "Would you like to go to Psyren?" Thus begins two teenagers' participation in a game of life or death within a strange world inhabited by monsters called "Taboo." Granted the ability to use psychic powers known as "PSI," the duo fight to return to the place they call home.

Psyren was published in English by VIZ Media under the Shonen Jump imprint from October 4, 2011 to May 6, 2014.

Mixed Feelings
Psyren is Wasted Potential: The Manga. There are so many interesting elements to the story that the author briefly touches on and then moves on (the "programming" of psychic abilities, villain backstory, powers revealed near the end...I could go on). Battles with seemingly big bads end in a matter of seconds/chapters and feel poorly paced. There is an enormous plot point introduced in the story that is never addressed again. Funny enough these only happens a little after the midway point, like the author got tired of writing the story or the series was cancelled and had to wrap ASAP. What starts as a cool ...

Psyren faces overarching issues, primarily stemming from a lack of build-up and the failure to break away from the typical cookie-cutter approach. Moreover, the villains in the series lack depth, seemingly existing solely for the sake of being evil


If you've seen Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Beelzebub, Gantz, and Akira you have basically seen all these characters before except they are just 2 dimensional, and trope filled copies.

-Yoshina's character bears a striking resemblance to Ichigo,and Yusuke but without the depth of Zangetsu and dynamic with Toguro/Sensui respectively

-Asaga is portrayed as a "noble thug," evoking memories of Kuwabara from YYH. Similarly he dips from the story for ...
