Read full description of the books:
This was a great find! Volumes are currently being released in English by Viz (the original run ended in Japan in 2010 I believe) though you can find fan scanlations online of the whole. A very smooth, linear read considering the post-apocalyptic, alternate timelines theme it deals with, which I put down as a strength because of the clarity this style lends to the story later on, despite a rather generic start (this volume).
Considering the decline in popularity that eventually led the series to be wrapped up (not too rushed- I enjoyed the conclusion in fact) however, I wonder if it was the ambitious turn the mangaka took that wasn't well received. The story bears similarities to Gantz and the Cell arc in Dragon Ball, and the power system is admirably flexible without resorting to convenient obscurities. One concern might be the lack of sustained humour and running gags (which might be a more significant reason for the series going out of popularity; compare the later Shounen Jump success Beelzebub), which gives the series a bit of a brooding seinen-like air once in a while, though there's a central romance developed (if in a low key shounen manga way) at a decent pace and some of the child characters do tend to brighten things up. Maybe timeline shifting stories can't escape this even with ample humour because they straddle the uneasy divide between inevitability and uncertainty, making attempts at levity feel a bit hollow and forcefully injected- in which case this series is fine as it is.
Definitely a read unlikely to disappoint anyone looking for a post-apocalyptic, dystopian, psychic powers or time travel oriented series.
I look forward to the mangaka's next work and hope to have a look at his prior works.
