Hatou Gaku has a very odd friend at school named Marii Yukari. Yukari has purple eyes and a bizarre way of looking at the world: she sees all living things as robots. This has not always worked out well for Yukari, even costing her a best friend when she was younger. However, Yukari insists that the things she says she sees is true, and her vision seems to give her insight into the abilities of others.

Gaku thinks she's just weird, but she soon realizes that Yukari has unexpected talents. It seems she can fix anything, and even the police come to hear her insights. It turns out that Yukari's purple eyes are not unique in the world! However, there is one important distinction among those who see humans as other objects. Do humans appear as unimportant as objects, or do those objects appear as important as human beings?

This review contains some spoilers since you can't explain why this manga is good without falling there. I don't think that general ideas can really spoil the levels this manga reaches but if you want them to hit at full force I'd recommend that you read it and stick to it until you get how distant the start and the end are.

The main issue is that it can be divided in two very distinct parts, and even if both of them are strong the turn it takes really hurts both. The first part is a nice classroom sort-of-yuri comedy/drama. A regular girl falls in friendship read more

If you're interested in really heady sci-fi and philosophical concepts, this might be worth checking out if that's all you're looking for. To say the least, Murasakiiro no Qualia is ambitious. After a somewhat slow start, it blows up into hyperspeed in directions you might not expect and never stops. The best part of the manga is seeing what insanity the author has thought up next, but in the process it loses a lot of what would make that kind of story interesting in the first place, making the whole thing feel clumsy, rushed, and full of unrealized potential.

This manga is apparently a novel adaptation, read more

Murasakiiro no Qualia, or Qualia the Purple, is one of some hidden gems which are buried among a ton of manga that people haven't noticed yet. Let's just jump to the main question : "Is this gem valuable or not?"

STORY : 9/10
I would say... Yes. With a lot of confidence. Story is the main force behind the series, and it's a very definition of mixed bag. It sports a pretty interesting initial premise : "Your friend has purple eyes and a bizarre way of looking at the world: she sees all living things as robots". While in the beginning it's a lighthearted (albeit pretty mysterious) read more

It’s interesting when the sci-fi within this manga are more appropriate for other mediums than to be expected from Dengeki Daioh, a shounen publishing magazine. However this setup really fits the tone presented in Qualia which seeks thrill wherever paths of normalcy lie, before being walked halfheartedly or disposed midway.
Full disclosure: This is among my favourite manga at this time of writing

Story: 8
After a quick peek at mid-field, Qualia takes off in a classroom – which it feels most comfortable – dragging only the biggest books wherever it goes and stopping its progression for cultural enrichment as read more
