Land of the Blindfolded is the story of high school student Outsuka Kanade who can sometimes see a person's future with a touch, and transfer student Naitou Arou, whose ESP is limited to past events. When Kanade glimpses an unfortunate incident coming, can she change it? She soon befriends Arou, who's no novice—he can turn his ability on or off at will, even using it to see an object's "memories." Are these teenaged seers of the past and future made for each other? And who's right: Arou with his "hands off" policy about meddling in people's lives, or Kanade whose more proactive stance has already had unhappy consequences?

I read this manga series a while back when I was first starting college. I was just browsing through my favorite anime store and just happened to fall upon this series. I am so glad I picked it up. It was so difficult for me to find decent series that didn't have too much of one thing over the other elements that can be used in making a story.

Land of the Blindfolded is a sweet and beautifully drawn series about three people that have special powers. One can see the past and the other two can see the future of anything they touch. It's a read more

This is an amazing manga... one of the most original I've read, really. At first I was dissapointed because they didn't have the rest of it in my library, but when they bought it I was ecstatic-- if you give this a try you might see what I mean, and how it's so wonderful to read.

The story is about three people who have unique psychic abilities. There's Kanade, the energetic and helpful main character, who can touch people and see their future (though this only happens at random); Arou, Kanade's newly found boyfriend, who can see the past at any given time without control (which read more

"We are not Gods, we can only do things to the best of our abilities."

I found the context of this manga captivating. Fate, future, destiny, and past. We have all, at one time or another, wanted or wished we knew the future or could change the past.
To the naked eye, this might seem like a slice of life manga with some supernatural elements, and in a way it is, but in another it's not. It's about being different and testing the people you call friends. It's about doing good whole heartedly and have people dislike you for it. Everything has it's consequences and even though read more

How can I say this, it's a wonderful story. People may see the Kanade too good, always helping people who will never understand her good. But that's what I like about her, her kindness has moved Arou and Namiki and make them a better person.
"Even so... No one can understand what it means to see... There will always be people who will accept you for what you are "
People think they're weird, but they all know the three are good people. It kinda make me think about myself a lot. I'm so glad I found this manga. Also for a manga from 1998, read more
