From: Easy Going Scans

In the year 2038, a white light descended on the center of Tokyo and stole the memories of over one million people. The cause of this horrible incident was not determined, and no cure was to be found. The government formed a separate city beneath Tokyo to house and care for the victims of the incident and branded them as "KIDz." Regardless of their age, they truly are like children, and they must be retaught everything they once knew. Noa Ikurumi, who lives in this isolated society, is just taking one day at a time and dreaming of finally being allowed to go back out into the world. But Noa's life will once again change drastically on the day that he is taken hostage by a terrorist with some surprising information about his identity...

I didn't have high expectations for this manga: an event where part of the population completely lose their memories? But I was pleasantly surprised. This manga surpassed my expectations and for the first...11 chapters I was really enjoying this. I liked the main character and his refusal to accept the discrimination against the KID'Z - his determination to find a way out.
But somehow this idea got lost against a background of one-up-man-ship, and a mangaka who wanted to create a complex plot in the last volume. Needless to say, the ending disappointed me. It felt rushed and forced. I did not appreciate the main character's sudden personality change and all that it entrailed. While this could have been a great manga, it was completely ruined by said ending. I don't know why the mangaka chose to complicate the plot so much towards the end, nor why they thought it needed it...

It's only 3 short of a volume. Since it has too much material in it. The story only focused and moved forward along with the protagonist. It's content is vast could've easily gotten to 10 volumes but the author rushed the story. Bases weren't all answered. Details on many factor in the series weren't revealed. Backgrounds on the characters weren't there. Still was a great read. It didn't leave me any strong lingering feelings that want more. I enjoyed every aspect of information that was available but it greatly lacks detail and background. This series would've have been more enjoyable and entertaining if was written with great care of the plot.

After reading the comments here I thought - even though it's short and never finished Manga -> I've got to read it. To be honest I really thought it was a real nice "thinker/tactian" manga like CodeGeass Anime or Historie but I was faster dissappointed than expected. If I were a japanese I would have also dropped this manga after a few chapters, not because the storyline isn't awesome enough or something, but rather because it is to fast, superficial (after a few chapters) and doesn't make much sense. I personally wished to know more about this world in which they were living instead of pushing the story forward in such a speed that it lacks explaination and the readers were left behind with one deusexmachine and turningpoint after another (not just at the end - it started pretty soon). I think it would've been crucial to go deeper into the story. Even though our Hero seems pretty smart, he put himself at such a high risk that everything what he's done could be invane and it looked more like luck then "calculation".
Additionally he wasn't able to figure out that there was a "bigger person" behind it who was watching him although it was completely obvious.

I pretty much think if the Author(s) would given the chapters much more depth, explanation, and thinking about the isses and actions he considers to take, then it would be much more captivating instead of wasting such a great potential.

Seriously, why the hell japanese cant really be enjoyed with intriguing storyline??
Almost all the mangas that i think that are awesome have 3~5 volumes..

Not that couldn't have more story, usually the ending is kinda rushed
So my guess is that it had poor reviews on japan.
What makes me think...japanese, in general, dont like to be surprised...
Unfortunally, they hasn't really welcome the idea of anti-hero. Something like DC comics in back 80's.

The things that they 'value' on manga, are things like friendship and etc. For me, this theme is over-used...

Me like the plot for this manga as how will the world be when so many people got amnesia and how the protagonist will handle it or make use of it. Me like the protagonists who can use their brain and mostly heartless people like for example Lelouch from Code Geass and Light from Death Note
They can think 2 or more steps before making a decision and alternative ways when their plan can't be completed.
Hopefully there will be more protagonists like this.

the first chapter just reminded me so much of mixes of manga like the great flicker in tegemi batchi. Although it was like that after i continued to the second chapter and the story turnd out to be so much more. you have a main character who acts like an antagonist but also a hero to those that know his intentions. The whole concept of the plot just attaches me like a leech XD i'm just glad there can still be mangas like this where it doesn't fully make you scream out "[insert manga/anime title]" and also "that's so lame/over used"

but i do hope the design turned plain. the extravagant clothes cuts, swords, main character's hairstyle, and everything is so boyish (shounen). i think future lies in sophisticate simplicity, not in extravagance. they hurt my eyes.

I adore anti-hero characters, like Noa. And I was caugt by the whole "world of lost memories" title, because when you read on, it certainly seems like a world, indeed. Many theories seep through my mind.

I've always been a huge fan of the thinkers, the masterminds, the tacticians of fiction. Given a choice between a muscle-bound hero and a cunning villain, I will laud the cunning villain every time.
Intelligent anti-heroes. These are the people who use their superior intelligence to seek their heroic, villainous or ambitious ends, masterfully manipulating pawns and opponents to overcome the limitations of simple strength: Dirk Provin of "The Second Sons", Reinhard von Lohengramm of "Legend of the Galactic Heroes", Griffith of "Berserk", Eumenes of "Historie", Lelouch vi Britannia of "Code Geass", Yagami Light of "Death Note", Hiyama Ren of "Lost+Brain".
And now, securely joining their ranks is Noa of "Zennou no Noa".
I eagerly await more.
