Mekakushi no Kuni  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Mekakushi no Kuni 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. While Kanade’s power is limited to the near future and is somewhat incontrollable, Arou’s is permanent and he can even use 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?

Not enough plot for 9 volumes

Somehow this manga doesn't seem to be character-driven. They are just not memorable enough.
And the plot only shines in last volumes.
It has it moments but it should be shorter.

Mekakushi no Kuni is, in my opinion, the masterpiece of Tsukuba Sakura. It manages to be inspiring and heartwarming and real despite its ESP premise. The characters are moving and experience tragedy and growth, inviting a non-superficial experience for the reader. This manga is one of the few that I can re-read time and time again, and I do--every couple of years since I was 13. It just doesn't get old. It is utterly sweet, utterly heartbreaking, and utterly perfect.

arou and kanade just make my heart skip a beat smile I love this series, and I reread it too. The art is adorable and gorgeous. I just can't help but love TSUBAKA SAKURA's art work. biggrin
This series just makes a smile appear, and i would recommend anyone to read it unless you're a smut fan, haha sorry theres nothing like that in here...
It's a very innocent manga and you really feel for the characters. Give it a chance! I'm sure you'll grow to love it

Like *some* of the people out there, I find this manga... well... boring. It has nice people on it and the ESP thing is interesting, but, meh, it's just BORING nevertheless. Maybe, it's not for me lol

Penguin revolution was way better (despite it's ending). This manga was just so boring. Yes, it's "supposedly" touching and what not, but it's just so slow and...well...boring. I could not bring myself to finish this manga. The characters were pretty bland too. There was nothing in particular that drew me into this manga. If you really have nothing else to read, then read this manga, but otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.

Sweet and Plenty Interesting

I love the romantic fantasies, and this is definitely one of the better ones. Occasionally a little slow at first, but it makes up for it by carefully developing the characters and plot in a realistic and interesting way. The romance is sweet but not contrived, sincere and pure without being ridiculous, and it occasionally makes you want to really cry for the characters-but doesn't hit you in the face with overly tragic past after tragic past. And while the main characters have powers, they choose to use and develop them in their own ways, much the way real people would use them or choose not to use them. They don't all have hero complexes and try to save the world; they do the best they can with their own lives and problems, and sometimes we the readers are rewarded with a bit of suspense and a surprising twist or two in the use of the power. Toward the ending it really had me eagerly turning pages, and while I wish there was more after the climax, I was satisfied enough I didn't feel like storming the author's house and giving her an earful in English, like I would like to do with some series authors. The art is also very beautiful and there is a delicate sense of detail in the character's faces and hands.

This manga has its own line of different stories interluded with the main motif of the head story. Even though there are three protagonists, leaving us in a confusion as of which one to get fond of, but anyway it's impossible, they're all wonderful, each of them is carefully continuously being described as the chapters go. As their stories flow, and as they are getting connected with one another, the protagonists come to deal and understand many things about people and their facades and weaknesses, but not only they, us too smile
The art is really witty and also lovely. Recommended !

Also, ch 24 made me weep like a baby, I almost lost all salt from my body. Beautiful and sad at the same time.

Nothing but "perfect" can describe this manga. I loved everything about it. It was beautiful, unique, and everything I could ever want in a high-school based romance manga. Perfect. And I want to name my son Arou, now. It's such a light, airy, flowy name. Aroou. Too bad it might sound weird with parents named Amanda and Ben. ........... Maybe not though! =D

Wow, I cried a couple times. xD

You don't see a manga very often that takes a couple, puts them together in the cutest of ways, and then manages to continue for fourty chapters through thick and thin and adorable in their relationship. Many seem to kind of run out of steam after there isn't unresolved sexual tension in the air to milk, or throw in things like sex or lack of protagonist common sense to spice it up, but Mekakushi no Kuni does not, and it's for the better.

That said, it's not really for anyone, anytime. I only recommend it if you're kind of in the mood for a very slow and sweet story.

I would personally say that it's fairly realistic as far as characters go. Most kids in highschool are good, ordinary kids. They want to do well, they want to live out their lives, and they don't usually want to save the world (at least I never did.) If you'd describe a good manga as realistic, I'd say it conveys the bland and happy sweetness of ordinary life pretty well.
