Summary: "Mekakushi no Kuni is the story of high school student Outsuka Kanade who can sometimes see a person's future with a touch, and transfer student Naitou Arou, whose ESP is limited to past events. When Kanade glimpses an unfortunate incident coming, can she change it? She soon befriends Arou, who's no novice — he can turn his ability on or off at will, even using it to see an object's "memories." Are these teenaged seers of the past and future made for each other? And who's right: Arou with his "hands off" policy about meddling in people's lives, or Kanade whose more proactive stance has already had unhappy consequences? "
This happens to be one of my favorite manga. It has a pretty intriguing storyline, amazing characters, and beautiful artwork. The feel of the story has its dark parts, but it also has those warm heart-felt parts. It's a good mixture of both, which leads the manga to being one of the best I've read. Not that I have anything against 'happy-go-lucky' manga, but let's be honest.. not everything is all 'happy-go-lucky' and Mekakushi no Kuni has more of a "real" feel to it because it shows the dark side of people too. It also deals with overcoming fears, anxiety, and the fact that they're quite different than most people. I really love this manga and it's definitely one I'd recommend checking out.
