After Ageha Yoshina beats up a bully for 10,000 yen, he heads home anticipating a scolding from his sister for breaking curfew. On his way there, a nearby pay phone starts ringing, and he picks it up only to hear his own echo. Shrugging it off, he places the receiver back only to find a mysterious calling card with the word \"Psyren\" written on it. Curious about the sudden appearance of the card, he goes to his school's Occult Club and asks about it. It turns about Psyren was an urban myth, and whoever found out what it really was would get a reward of 500 million yen. The same day, he finds his classmate's (Sakurako Amamiya's) wallet, which some other girls hid, and notices she has the same card. After he returns it to her, she runs off and disappears. The last thing he hears is \"Save me\". The next day she isn't at school and soon she is declared missing. Ageha calls the number on the card in hopes of finding her. After answering a long and detailed quiz on a pay phone, he is asked if he wants to go to Psyren. The next day, while he is being chased by two mysterious people pretending to be police officers; his phone rings. In a panic, he picks up and is suddenly drawn into the world of Psyren, which is a wasteland inhabited by monsters called Taboo. It is later revealed that the Taboo were once humans that were turned into Taboo by an organization known as the W.I.S.E. The voice from the phone, dubbed Nemesis Q, assigns missions which people must complete if they wish to return home.
Psyren was written and illustrated by Toshiaki Iwashiro. The series was first published in Shueisha's shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump in the 1st 2008 issue released on December 3, 2007. The series finished in the 52nd issue of the magazine on November 29, 2010. Shueisha collected its individual chapters into sixteen tankōbon volumes released from May 2, 2008 to March 4, 2011.
PSI is one of the defining features of the manga Psyren. PSI is an ability that allows a person to activate the full potential of their brain to actualize their thoughts as various 'waves'; allowing an individual to realize a plethora of para-psychological and superhuman abilities that depend on the given person's natural qualities, state of psyche, and training. The term PSI can refer to the usage of this ability, but also the energy, effect, or 'waves' that is the corporealization of PSI. A person capable of utilizing PSI is colloquially referred to as a \"Psychicer\" or \"Psycher.\"
Mental issues in a Psycher can lead to some very odd things Because of its basis in neurological and psychological functions, mental illness and other conditions can manifest as new personalities with their own PSI abilities and affinities altogether. Sakurako is an example of this, as after her mind was fractured she developed an alternate personality entirely, with its own PSI that differed completely from her own.
So far, it has been used to read minds, \"dive\" into memories and force the target to see illusions. However, the possibilities for Trance go far beyond just what has been displayed so far, for instance, it is theoretically possible to completely control a target. However, there are less dangerous uses of Trance, such as being able to locate the enhanced minds of others using PSI or communicate with another PSI user/users, however unlike Burst waves, Trance thought waves are directly affected by the outside atmosphere and can be blocked by any defense in battles. In PSI combat, Trance is the way to counter Burst.
Nova (ノヴァ, Nova): It is a combination of the three basic types of PSI, attained through intense training of all the three basic types together. Nova is a PSI-limiter removal type of form, where the user and their PSI energy merge together and become one. It is the combination of all the three basic aspects of PSI, namely, Burst, Rise and Trace. Since the user's body becomes more energy than matter by using this type, they are known as an \"existence\" instead of a \"person\". Those who learn to use Nova can excel their power levels to match or exceed the power levels attained by fusing the Illumnia Cores as done by certain members of the WISE. The down side to this great power is its terrible after-effects. After one reaches their limit, the power disappears almost as quickly as it came leaving the user completely drained and at times, bleeding from the eyes and nose, from the immense stress forced onto the brain. One way to learn Nova is by letting another Nova user to transfer his/her Nova-energy through touch, but the resulting pain is excruciating because every cell in the body is affected through the free flow of the Nova-energy. The risk for learning it is, if they don't have full control over Nova than they become engulfed by it and cease to exist.
After the incident with Sakurako, Ageha begins hearing about the many disappearances all around the nation and that there is a \"Secret Society of Psyren\" which is led by Nemesis Q. This place is supposedly one for those who are sick of their current society and wish to go to a place of \"Paradise.\" Anybody who can find out the truth of Psyren will be rewarded with 500 million yen, which interests Ageha highly. He learns he could make possibly 5 million yen by bringing his red calling card out to the public, but decides against that because he thinks of how Sakurako disappeared, and wants to find her and save her from the place she has been taken to. Ageha then uses his card at the pay phone he had recieved it at and when he places it inside the phone rings, and he answers. The voice on the phone tells him to answer questions for an examination which he does, but toward the end the questions become more personal about his life. He becomes irritated and the voice screams at him which he then retaliates, but giving the phone his name. Afterward, Ageha is asked one final question: \"Would you like to go to Psyren\". He instantly thinks he's being fooled and answers no, before leaving to head back home. With the phone hung up, the voice says the examination is complete and they will contact Ageha with the results.

I wholeheartedly suggest, especially if you are an anime or mange fan, to read this story. I believe it is a masterpiece. Will people disagree with me Probably. I have my own personal standards and ways of determining artistic genius. These are extended, but not limited to, books like Les Miserable, movies like Nosferatu and even obscure Japanese manga like Psyren. It is my belief that in finding these beautiful masterpieces we are able to come closer to understanding the power behind inborn human genius and creativity. 153554b96e
