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.

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 ...

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 ...

Preliminary (20/48 eps)
this is the first manga i read... and i absolutely HATED it.
I swear, its so boring. theres nothing in it... its just stupid little stories. No comedy, typical romance (none of the EEEP moments), very stupid. The characters are not well-developed, and it just stinxx!
bcz its the first manga i read, and the ppl r praising it 2 death, i'm thinking, maybe manga isnt for me bcz the expectations 4 manga seem rlly low.
the only thing that kept me from giving it a 1 is that the drawings r nice and the blindfolded analogy is cool..
BUT.. the story is horrid. A nightmare to read.
PLZ PLZ, ...
