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?

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.

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

If anything, this story is really sweet. Like a huge lump of milk chocolate. I can see someone like Hayao Miyazaki making a movie of this that's how bland and touching it is. I liked it, but a little more REALITY would have worked. The kids in this story didn't really do bad things, get in trouble or get into this HUGE love thing, it was all slow and fixed with the girl's HUGE doe eyes. Yeah see in real life that doesn't solve everything/anything.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
One of her earlier works, Tsukuba Sakura knows how to tell a story without over exaggerating. Although the ending was unexpected (a bit open-ended), I could tell where it lead. I am just sad that it ended so quickly! I'm sure it could have been a little longer*sigh*

The question is, would you use your power to see the past or future to save someone? Arou proves that seeing the past CAN save someone's future, no matter what the circumstances. Kanade's determination to change the present and save the future of many people's lives is really touching. :] I love the simplicity of the plot, but the complexity of the character development of it all. There's so much emotion, and Tsukuba Sakura portrays the characters so well. It's not a story where each character is introduced right from the beginning. As each character enters, their stories unfold so subtly that sometimes I'm like "oh yea that did happen to that person", but I forget that I read it a little while back. Plus, the relationship(s) are so sweet. I've grown to love all the characters, and I'm sure others will too.

Just when you think you've read all the manga out there.
A refreshing tale that makes you eager for life. Not too long so you'll get bored of it, but not too short that you'll crave more. Wonderful art and wonderful story, a must read.

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.

I was confused with Arou's personality though. He went from having a bad-boy attitude way at the beginning, to being this super sweet, sensitive guy. which everyone LOVES of course. the artwork was bad, but it got better.. (Eri looked funny, now she's prettier!)

I like the story in whole, especially the concept of it. Arou's past made me cry. His dad and him when he was a kid, and coping with his mom's death. Sad..

It basically centers around what reality could be if these "powers" does exist. It was believable. Nothing was too overdone. Its not stupid. And its not cheesy/cliche.. Arou's and Kanade's love are the most sincere that I've seen in most mangas.

But GOD! the ending made me go "WHAT THE F***!" hahah i mean, poor Namiki! he's just.. the same! what happened to him now? haha whats happened to Sou? alot of "whats" still going on in my head..

NOT recommended to those who cant stand slow-moving stories.
