Quick Manga Thoughts: Psyren


Sigh. I really hate school. It takes up so much time that I can’t even watch anime. I can only read manga during my breaks in school. Anyways, I just finished this manga, and I did not really like it. The manga was heading for a good direction, but there wasn’t any strong conclusion to the story. As the story progressed, it got more and more confusing that I think it even confused the author himself. The idea was far too complex, and it was obvious he didn’t think it out through enough. All in all, I was just very disappointed with this manga.

The five characters on that picture are the main, but there is nothing good about them. For starters, Yoshino was a very weak main character for a shounen manga. All his power ups were nonsense that it was even funny. I know random power ups happen in shounen manga a lot, but come on. At least make some of his friends be injured, then have him go into his rage form. He sees Miroku and does his rage form, which was STUPID. They other characters were also randomly given random situations that never got expanded on. They brought up the Menance Avatar, but never explained more carefully about it.

The story was much too rushed and anticlimatic. What was that ending? The big antagonist who the manga focused solely on turned out to be “manipulated” by someone? What was all that build up for? Then the supposed antagonist helps them kill Ouroborous?? My god. If that was not the most retarded ending, I do not know what is. What I can’t believe more is that Miroku BOUGHT the flashbacks that Yoshino transferred to him. That totally ruined his image there and basically stripped his role of being an antagonist to being an emo kid who couldn’t find any love, so he destroyed everything. What a lackluster character. Every character in this manga was flat, and the amount of surprise appearances they did was so stupid. I also hate the idea of the dead alive. They kept killing the characters over and over again, and reviving them over and over again. I am really upset with this manga, and I now I know why it got axed.
