Description
It is the year 20XX. Earth has been assaulted by monsters known as 'the Enemy of Humanity'. In order to deal with this threat, special schools comprised of teenagers with extraordinary abilities were formed. These people, who came to be known as 'the Talented', have abilities that defy the rules of reality. Among these superpowered individuals was an outlier, someone who was sent to one of these schools despite having no innate special abilities whatsoever. This is the story of our protagonist, who attempts to defeat the Enemies of Humanity through the use of intelligence and manipulation.

Don't be deceived by the first 20 chapters or so

At first, the manga seems to be just about a serial killer manipulating her victims and trying (and succeeding) to cover up her crimes, but if you're familiar with Loose Boy's earlier stuff (Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo and G-senjou no Maou) you'd know this is not his usual style. In fact, starting from the twenty-something chapters, it's obvious that the manga is going in a similar direction as his two other famous works, except the drama sets in much later. SnK, G-sen and this work all feature an MC who, after a traumatic past where they lost most of their family, was taken by a strong but (at least borderline) evil father figure who treats them as his own child, and for whom they have to perform tasks that are not necessarily morally good. Then

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The MC's heart begins to be melted by one of the other characters he's ordered by the father figure to hurt, begins to resist the father and eventually defeats him after a long battle, but the father ends up happy about the MC's development. Hell, there's even a strong hint as to what the major plot twist will be - it will be similar to the ones in SnK and G-sen.


I'm not saying you'll necessarily love this development - if you hated both SnK and G-sen, then you probably shouldn't continue - but please don't base your judgement of whether you should read this series purely on the other reviews on the Internet, since most of them were written before the plot turned in the author's usual direction.

Major Problems   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

The series can be summed up with unfortunate accuracy as being set in a serial-numbers-filed-off Bad Future of the X-Men where the kill-all-mutants faction has mostly won, with the main character being their assassin...and the narrative is unquestioning about the need and virtue of killing people merely for being 'not normal.'

The whole "MC's victims as future criminals" thing--that she nearly unquestioningly accepts--is the major problem here. It's explicit that Nana's bosses won't allow any of the Talented to live. That pretty much excludes the only possible source for these numbers that isn't some form of 'their rear ends'--especially when the example we get of their claims coming true is a death toll that's primarily the result of their efforts to kill a Talented individual.

Oh, and Nana--with all her vaunted deductive skills--isn't asking the obvious question of where her bosses are getting these numbers. As far as I was able to tolerate this series, she only had a faint glimmer of critical thinking applied to her info.

If they'd not mixed all of these elements in, this might not actually have been quite so bad for the story--it'd have been easy enough to just have becoming one of the 'enemies of humanity' be not the consequence of bigotry on the side of the normals but just the unfortunate, unavoidable ultimate destiny of the Talented to eventually go berserk. Or Nana could be a bit less oblivious to the fishy smell of the claims of her bosses--a moment of brief questioning of how a healer could use her powers for mass murder doesn't count, that's absurdly little given the obvious questions here and her supposed skills.

So, as a result, we get a story that is convinced of the goodness of genocide and bigotry, and killing people before they kill you...in an attempt to save themselves from your bigoted ass. About the only thing that could save this story is Kyouya winning.

Is serial murder wrong if you're cute?

Reverse mystery where the villain does the explaining of how they outwitted the superpowered.
I suggest reading chapters 1-3 to fully understand the concept of the series, though chapter 1 is the formula that the rest of the series follows over more chapters. Chapter 3 fully introduces Kyouya as the detective, strong point in the series is when he shows up and flustered the cute murderer.

Everyone's not perfect in the series, lots of showing the MC's victims as future criminals to lessen the blow that she's about to murder them by showing a large number of predicted deaths shown on her cell phone from letting her targets live. Mangaka is constantly giving the MC moral superiority when she really shouldn't have any by doing this. The MC Nana slips from lie to lie so fast that it's hard to root for her in any sense. I think the major problem with the story is that the mangaka decided to make her likable and committed to justice but also heartless. This is slightly balanced by Nana doing little prayers for victims in an attempt to salvage her moral pride. If the reader buys her character, even if only because her character design is pretty, then I imagine they'll enjoy the manga. If the reader doesn't like her, then the whole story becomes painful to read as she gets a lot of lucky breaks.
The focus is on how the MC is going to get out of the situation, but the way it's told made it hard to follow so I had to test my willing suspension of disbelief and go along with whatever was happening at the time.

The strongest part is the relationship with Kyouya, the resident detective who has eternal skepticism for the MC. This is kind of weak because it's hard to understand the story from Kyouya's viewpoint since it's so incredibly obvious to the reader that the MC is super guilty. This problem doesn't seem like it's going to get solved either.

This was written as of chapter 16. The polarized reviews of the series are well-deserved, there's a lot of writing in the manga that made me despise it a little bit, but ultimately I managed to enjoy it because the of the premise and Nana's twisted justice.
I doubt it'll last much longer, but I'm glad it exists.

It's kind of a poor man's fusion of detective conan and Mx0.
