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?

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

I would consider this manga unique even though it falls into many very annoyingly stereotypical manga situations (i.e. wimpy protagonist who wants to save everybody). These negative attributes degrade the manga's originality but the overall story is still extraordinary.

One draw back of the manga is its characters. They are bland base models of typical characters.

On the other hand, the art is above average. The pages definitely rise above the standards of its genre, in which the art is usually secondary.

The story is where this manga truly shines. Now there are parts which are boring because of the stereotypical plot advances, but I can read more

Preliminary
*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
