From ShoujoMagic:

Living in regret that his formula gave birth to the atomic bomb, Professor Einstein sends two boys whose eyes can see the future on a train that travels at the speed of light before embarking on his own final adventure: death. His hope is that they will find "HER" and tell her his wish, for it is only she who can grant it.

Fifty years later, it is 2005 and the place is Tokyo. At last, "SHE" (Ruika) has been found... but Ruika has an unusual circumstance. For her mother's sake, she's been living as her dead brother since childhood. Does Ruika truly have the power to grant wishes? If she grants her mother's wish by becoming a boy, then no one can lead us into the GLOBAL GARDEN... Now it's a race against time and against each other, because everyone has a dark past and an ulterior motive for possessing the girl who can grant Einstein's wish.

I normally don't post comments for mangas even if I like it a lot (I just can't find the meaning of posting it) but this manga is beyond amazing. It has everything you'd wanna read about! A bit of romance (ok, a big bit of romance), adventure, thrill, sci-fi and a whole lot of suspense. It's really amazing. If ur looking for something to read this is definitely it smile

I was hesitating to read this manga because of the art. Although it was clean, the proportions were not quite right. However, the plot and the characters were amazing. The mangaka managed to make the characters well rounded and three-dimensional - like what you would expect from someone in their situation. The plot was very unique: science and fantasy put together which only some authors manage to pull it off without any plot holes.

I thought the plot was original and it kept me wanting to read more. The artwork is clean and the boys are pretty, basically typical shoujo art but I like that. I did think that the characters could have developed a little bit more especially at the end. Overall I recommend this manga.

I just happened upon this series when I was bored and looking for something to read. I didn't really have any high expectations for it, but it turned out to be really good. The storyline was really original, at least compared to your typical supernatural romance manga. I think the only thing that was lacking in any way was the artwork, and even that wasn't bad. I've seen worse. I definitely think its something worth trying.

ART: Nice, clean lines with a bit of disproportional body size. A lot of Improvement from PSME, but maybe it doesn't appeal for all reader. Some may not find the style amusing.

STORY: A good beginning; interesting SF imagination. Plot blurred after third chapter.

CHARACTER: The same old shoujo heroine who drown in her own angst. Additional two heroes. And a small kid.

CONCLUSION: Dissapointing; not my cup of tea.

It's a pretty good manga. The art isn't my favorite, but it okay, and the story is easy to understand and you can, somewhat, relate to it. It's one of those stories where you realize that the world you live in needs to change.
It was a good read, I'm glad I found it ^^

As I was reading this, it started out as a gender-blending plot. But as it goes deeper into the story, you get to the core of the story and finding myself being dragged along. Also, the point of view between the two cousins is really interesting. You get to hear each side of the story and all those misunderstandings/confusions are cleared up.

The twists are really good. There are touching scenes and I found myself tearing for certain situations (which I won't say so go read it to find out!!) The author was really clever with her storytelling and everything is connected in some way. Two thumbs up! d(^_^)b

this manga made me cry a lot. the story is interesting and touching. i like how the plot unravels. if you are not familiar with Einstein's theories, it can be quite confusing. but overall, i find the manga really amazing. so i'll give it a two thumbs up. i truly recommend it.

just finished this manga and I am so glad I read it. It is very touching and well written. Romantic but not too fluffy. The art is good also. I am glad I read it. Almost the perfect story.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
love this!! It was really cool how everything connected in the end xD Yeahh, in the beginning it was kinda wierd and confucing but it got better (which was good..) During the middle it got kinda boring tho.. but the ending was AWESOME! :D totally loved it! However.. i felt that in the beginning it seemed as though Hikaru ( i think that was his name ;3) liked/loved Ruika because of what she will be i the he didn't really see the ruika that was there. But all was good ;D not to mentioned the art got better near the ending. xD Trust me the beginning's art was TERRIBLE ! xD LOL. Ruika looked terrible in the beginning, but then she became soo beautiful during the end of the story; Hikaru looked horribel too..i tohught i was going to puke when i saw him in the beginning xD ><" but he got wayy better and HOT in the endd!! LOL.(meaning the art changed drastically) i had thought of giving up on this manga.. but good thing i didn't xD Hee, Well anyway i love te ending!! ;D esplly how Robin became their son :3 <33 I thought i was going to cry when i thought Hikaru was seriously dead..BUT ofc that won't happen x3 everything was good, but the only thing was.. that i wanted to know if Ruika still had her power in the end...><"" and i wanted to know wut happened to Sissy and Haruhi...-sigh- well i'm going to give it a 9.5. And the missing 0.5 was b/c of all the unanswered questions i had and b/c of the beginning xDD LOL. well GO AND READ THIS MANGA NOWW! xD just make sure to stay with it till the end.... that's when the REALLY good part comess xDD LOl.
