I thought it would be different.
I started reading Psyren with absolutely no idea about what it was. Really, I simply picked it up from the mass of mangas out there. I started reading it and actually enjoyed it a lot! The story was intriguing and amazing, the characters were good too. I expected it would be a different manga, about brains instead of brawls, like Bloody Monday or Liar Game.
But then I reached the point when they started talking about psy, I noticed this was the "monetary power system" of the manga, I understood it was actually simply a shonen manga, like Naruto and Bleach, and I lost the interest (I'm was kind of tired of shonen by the time).
Probably I should start reading it again, this time knowing what to expect, and check if it's good or not. I guess I posted this comment just to warn people not to mistake things like I did. Read it if you like shonen like Naruto or Bleach.
Psyren was certainly a bizarre manga. When I first started, I really loved it. And then everything went downhill. Characters, plot, quality, etc. The last thirty or forty chapters were just bad, especially the last few. It's a real shame, it had a ton of potential in the beginning. Great character, interesting plot. Then a bunch of new characters whose names I could never remember got introduced, and all the good characters got stranded in the future or just stopped appearing (I'm looking at you, headscarf guy!). All in all, it's a shame about what happened to Psyren. But the author was digging himself into a hole. Still, I was very sad when I learned it was being canceled.
great manga!! didnt want it to end
damn it sucks that this manga ended so early, to me they could have kept it going like for example i thought that the main villain guy

and his crew would learn the nova ability too or something to be a threat again or new villans would apear because i really thought this manga had a lot of potential to be in the top next to the big 3 like Fairy tail did but oh well. i just hope that the author gets an anime version of this and/or that there is a sequel to this manga (like The Breaker manga did). so i guess ill look forward to his next work then.

plus the mithra villan getting her ass handed that quickly made sense since in the future ageha beat Miroku (pretty easily i might add) and Miroku practically beat Mithra while dying from the wound ageha inflicted, so ageha was obviously capable of beating her that fast he was on another level
plus the ending was like that i guess cause they axed the series i really hate when they do this expecially to good ones like this im definetly hoping for and anime and a sequel

I would have liked it to continue but it ended very well
to those that thought the last fight went to quickly . . .what did you really expect?
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Ageha by that point had already defeated the strongest Psi user in the future where his Psi powers were enhanced by the atmosphere + he had the boost from the Nova cells that his dad gave him - in the past where no one is pumped up - he has reached a god like level - this is to me another good reason why the author ended the story here - who is there really left for him to fight? there is no one left on his and even Amamiya's level - and making those bad guys up would have probably killed the story over all - especially since Psyren was a creation of No 7 of the future - once the time line diverged, she would cease to exist really, Real glad they went and saved her in the past/present though -
I think the ending sets it up really well for a possible sequel!
f$ck the japanese kids
Bleach and Naruto are shit and are still going, psyren lacks a little for a while and is forced to end...
F$ck them all!!! and the super huge list of rushed ended mangas in my complete list!!!
Psyren was at times superior to the big 3 and at times only inferior to One piece, but yeah, this one is also forced to end... oh well I loved the history and the characters, it was starting to get a little bleachy with the many characters, but this autor knew how to keep us afraid of one of them dying... damn rushed endings, but nevertheless it was a good manga
ended too quick?
I thought so anyway.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Mithra lasted all of 2 pages or something - weak.
Also ended way too happy for my tastes.
Otherwise totally good though.

The one thing I was always looking forward to, which I thought would definetly happen, never happened. Guess the time was missing. Nevertheless, I do not regret reading this manga. No, I actually very much enjoyed it. If you want action plus shounen plus a tad of romance, go ahead! Read "Psyren" you won't regret it. And for me, I can finish this manga which I've read continually every week after about ch fourty or fifty ^^ It was a fun time, there were times I was really looking forward to the new chapter, but that's over now. Wish there would be a sequel though You know, when they are all more grown up and maybe my anticipated but never shown arc will come~~ it was implied, more than just once, but oh well. Nothing you can do about it ^^
I very much enjoyed the story. It was wellpaced, easy to understand, and likable. I like Ageha, and the humour is subtle, understated and funny. Also, the romance is well done and believable, and really kind of absolutely adorable. It's a very awwww sort of thing; you just can't help yourself.
However, I do agree with DarkSlushie, who said there were way too many characters and it's impossible to keep track of them. There are and it is. Sometimes a chapter ends with a Great Dramatic Reveal, and I have to go and Google "Psyren character-name" to figure out who they were. It takes a lot of Dramatic out of it. But in general. it's a fantastic series. Everyone is kickass, no one is useless, and no one annoyed me so much I had to put it down. Definitely worth a shot if you're into shounen.

psyren is not your average bleach
I just rant a bit, don't throw your anger on me . I've just started reading Psyren last week, but I like it very much, same as when I first read Bleach. But as the stories go, I found Bleach so boring and dragging and repetitive, while Psyren has definitely become better and better. Characters are cool, art is awesome, fights are great, and no tear, no unexpressed feelings (wtf to do with that in a fighting shonen?). It should be more popular, unfortunately Bleach and Naruto have had a long way ahead with the massive advertisement. And someone said the publisher is gonna end it soon so that the mangaka has to rush the story. What a shame.
And please don't compare Psyren with other shonen, because all shonen nowadays share some common aspects like that. If you want some original ones, read DBZ, Yu Yu Hakusho or Ranma 1/2, or quit reading lol
salt and black pepper
I like the subtle humour Psyren has. To summarize the beginning, it's basically some kind of "survival game" some unknown entity invented. The inhabitants of this "game" don't know who those strangers said entity sends are or where they come from, but they kill them anyway. As my current fav character Oboro is just awesome and, as long as the translator didn't screw that scene up, he seems to harbour some secret. Gets crazy when he is cold... wishes for destruction power and gets "cure" instead... suddenly hugs whoever he likes (also guys)... freak <3
Oh and the art is somewhat similiar to Bleach... probably the mangaka is in some way connected with Bleach's mangaka... kind of like with Naruto and Satan666.
