Volume 1 of Psyren (cancelled far too soon)


Background Information

Psyren is a completed shonen manga series with 16 volumes created by Toshiaki Iwashiro.

The main character Ageha stumbles on a calling card with the word "Psyren" printed on it. In an attempt to find out the whereabouts of his classmate who also mentions Psyren before mysteriously disappearing he uses the card and is eventually drawn into a post-apocalyptic world.

The world is inhabited by monsters called Tavoo and Ageha and his friends must use their newly acquired psychic powers to defend themselves and eventually stop the ruin of the entire world. Some people have described the plot as "Gantz with Psychic powers for kids".

The psychic power set includes Burst, Rise and Trance. Trance is the ability to manipulate others, examples are telepathy and illusions. Burst is the ability to interact with the environment; examples are Psychokinesis and Pyrokinesis. Rise is the ability to give yourself a physical boost in stats. The manga makes use of this with characters combining two or three move sets to create something completely different.

Standing in the Battledome

Psyren is a balanced and strong verse. They are likely on par with the likes of Yu Yu Hakusho.
