Don't trust the ratings.

The beginning showed promise, then it turned into just another dung pile shounen slice of life. Despite how hard the mangaka might try to convince you otherwise, the characters have NO DEPTH. All of the main characters are the same type of person -- misunderstood saints surrounded by a thick layer of teenage angst and emotional traumatic backstory. Everyone else is a faceless nameless bully that is simply incapable of seeing how ~omigod kewl&sweet and soooo smart the mc is!!!!~ and that's it. There are no fights, just "misunderstandings".
And to mention THE GAPING PLOT HOLES everywhere. Swiss cheese is smoother than this storyline. Do you really expect me to believe the government -- any government, in fact -- would let teenagers with SUPERPOWERS live like normal people? Or that the kids themselves would live their lives like they don't have the ability to see when their friends are backstabbing them, only bringing up their irises when it's convenient? There are so many things just plain wrong about this manga; the level of suspension of disbelief required to read this manga is god-like. And I've read and enjoyed much more unbelievable stuff; the difference was that they never took themselves too seriously. Not once in the ~18 chapters I read did anyone (at least in-story) acknowledge just how ridiculous the whole thing was (not even a little prodding self-referential humor) -- it blew my mind that the author could so earnestly and so seriously write something this bad.
This is the kind of story that a thirteen-year-old girl who's just started taking a creative writing class and is trying to be "deep" would write. And it doesn't matter how many times death or suicide is mentioned -- the greatest tragedy never be anything more than a broken heart and some hurt feelings.

This is the last time I ever let ratings dictate my reading choices.

It's like "the blind chicken is king among the one-eyed." I know I just bungled that up on purpose.
Great art, slice-of-life feel. If you're looking for full out suspense and angst this is not for you. I like this peaceful feeling though.

(recommended for Natsume Yuujinchou fans like me!)

Dropped at chapter 8, characters too flat and good-natured

I hate hate characters that are too idealistic and nice, especially when combined with pushiness. I don't mind a feel good manga, but geez, I need to see some more evil if this story's going to be about powers. The entire main cast is too nice for my liking. Characters do have background stories, but it's honestly really shallow. Maybe I'll give it a try again later on, but I seriously don't care about the characters.

Not bad, but there are things I find a bit questionable.
Since everybody has an Iris, I'm surprised the world isn't a more corrupt place. Everything feels too normal when people can have the ability to see lies, death omens, and true feelings. I expected the setting to be a bit more edgy but I guess I'm thinking too much into this.
Overall the series was interesting, other then their nose and egg head, I think the art is alright. It's a nice read.

Starting to disappoint.

At first, I really, really liked this manga. The characters and the whole 'iris' idea are really good and well developed. However, as it progresses, the manga seems to be turning into just a story about a high school romance. I have nothing against that but I was rather disappointed that this wonderful idea was starting to turn into a regular love story. The world that the author created seems so unique... Yet, the author is now focusing on the high school crushes rather than how the characters progress and deal with their unique abilities as well as not having one.

For me, I can distinctly see how this manga has turned from an exciting adventure with new worlds into just a shoujo manga. I really hope that, once this whole love thing has calmed down, it will return to being the manga that is was in the beginning.

I can see myself starting to avoid reading this if it continues to keep on focusing so much about the romance, but for those of you who like shoujo manga, I definitely think this manga is something to consider.

Great Stuff

So far, up until the latest chapter (chapter 29) it has been an amazing experience to read this manga. I like the idea that each person has an unique ability (aka iris) and the characters are so full emotions and stuff. In my opinion this is probably one of the top 10 manga I have read.

MY favorite part of this manga is not the characters or the drawing (even though they are really well done) but rather the story and the plot. The author have done a great job putting up the plot, the chapters doesn't end to cliffhangy but you still really want to read the next chapter. Everything is perfectly planned.

a lot of great ratings for this and yet.... it's not that great. >_> if i was new to manga i'd say it's ok.... but personally right now it kinda bores me. Suggesting this to those who aren't looking for anything great.

the plot is very well done, and developped, as are the characters. the art is nice too. even though sasamori always seems to have wind in her hair! biggrin
the main characters are very likeable aswell.
i'd disagree with what Denyx has to say, true the chapter has left us with that cliff hanger, but, the rest of the story relies on how toru reacts so until we know, we don't know whether it'll become all episodic romance manga biggrin
it's a must reaD!

oh man, in the beginning of the story, it gave off good vibes, nice storyline, so I thought well i'll give it a try, so far its good until ch 28, then, there goes another bad-romance-manga-storyline
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
to be simple, another girl joined, main heroine got jealous, the new girl confessed, main hero tried to get rid of the new girl, his act made a new misunderstanding with main heroine, main heroine cried and left

oh man, please dont make this series into another roller-coaster-romance

my rating used to be 9/10, but now its 7/10

10/10 For sure, this manga has everything you need for light reading:

-Cute characters
-Likable protagonist and likable love interest
-No stupid fan service
-No annoying childhood friend/tsundere school president/idol fight for affection
-Interesting, albeit simplistic and shallow, puzzle arcs (I did say light reading)
-Well characterized and three dimensional supporting characters that aren't paper cut outs
-Villains that are easy to sympathize with rather than being evil for the sake of being evil
-Minimal use of stupid plot devices to fill in plot holes (not being 300 chapters long helps, obviously)
-Believable dialogue and minimal use of "manga logic"

-Most important of all: great art.

I can go on and on about how great this manga is, but there are a few weaknesses. It is a bit shallow. The hardcore seinen/psychological fan won't be too intrigued by what's going on here. The exposition is lacking, the setting feels a bit forced and almost all background information is given through flashbacks. There are a lot of missed opportunities, especially at the beginning, to emphasize the difference between those with and those without irises. (I can't really fault the manga too much because it was supposed to be a very short series with no plans for a long serialization.) It also isn't very dark, which by itself isn't a weakness per se, but genre fans generally like the dark stuff.

Despite all that I give it a 10/10. There are deep underlying themes within the story; character foils and recurring motifs add to the complexity of each member of the main cast. It's rare that I care about every single character connected to the main protagonist, but this mangaka has done it. The strength of the characters far outweigh the comparably miniscule complaints I have about this manga.

Everyone should give this series a try, at the very least read the first 2 arcs.
