Holy crap... that kind of jump printing quality looks like the kind I was lucky enough to get once. Man I wish I've gotten more perfect quality jump issues...


Anyway, thanks anpan. This one looks promising.

The girl's name is Amamiya Sakurako, or for short the "Ice Princess." The first picture speaks of their futures, and unfortunately the rest is too small for me to read...get me some bigger ones and we'll be in business.

There is also a summary spoiler

読んだよ。文才ないし携帯だからあんまり詳しくかけないから簡潔な説明を

高校一年で学校のトラブルシューターみたいな事をやってる
夜科アゲハ(主人公)は
ひょんなことからサイレンと書かれたテレホンカードを公衆電話で拾う。
ある日クラスメートで根暗の電波少女、雨宮桜子(メガネ)の財布を拾い雨宮も同じテレカを持っている事を知る。
このテレカはなんだ?(スペルがわからないアゲハ)と雨宮に問うが、雨宮はしらばっくれ、次の日失踪。

前に彼女がサイレンがどうとか言っていたのを思い出し、
テレカ、サイレンについて調べだしたアゲハ。

そして都市伝説「秘密結社サイレン」というネット上の噂を知る。
現実がイヤになった者を集め楽園へとみちびく者
それが秘密結社サイレン
テレカはサイレンへの唯一の連絡手段らしい
そしてサイレンの秘密を突き止めた者には5億の懸賞金が出るらしい
テレカもオークションで500万くらいいくらしい。
まあ色々あって電話するアゲハ
んでいろいろあってサイレンの世界(荒野)にワープしてつづく。

後半ほとんどはしょったけどこんな感じ。

thanks dofla, hope someone might translate this
[hr]
Translation by pux:

he is the 'trouble shooter' of the school (japanese english rape, i guess). he (ageha) has a telephone card with the word psyren written on it, he picked it up from a public phone booth. one day his dark (as in dark personality, depressing/cynical) friend, loses her wallet, and he picks it up and finds she has the same card. when he wonders what it is, (he doesn't know spells), he wants to ask but she disappeared the next day. he remembers her asking him if he had heard of psyren before. he hears an internet rumor about a secret society psyren. the only way to contact psyren is through the telephone card. he looks online and the cards sell on auction for 500 man yen (i.e. $50,000). then a lot happens, but he ends up calling and warps to the psyren world.

Very, very promising! Thanks to all who provided scans and translations!

Ageha's an interesting punk, but I like how Amamiya is shaping up to be a potentially kickass-and-take-names character.

Koen
December 03, 2007, 09:05 AM
The main questions I got in this chapter: 1. There is another world, but what is psyrens goal (and why connection with earth) 2. How did they know a lot about ageha? Because of that I assume that psyrens workers, etc know ageha (friends? Maybe his mother?)

They're all valid questions, but they're all questions that everyone has. Everything's open-ended at this point.

Anyways, this series looks extremely promising! There's this feeling I get when I read it that tells me that I don't see this one failing. I could be completely wrong and look like an idiot in a few weeks time though.

I agree. But remember it's only one chapter far. Though I agree this is the best start of a shounen for years and issues...

And I wonder where it will go to (psyren's objective, amamiya, etc), what will be the main setting (earth or the other world?),...

After re-reading the scanlation I'm beginning to see similarities to the Matrix. Anybody else? (I'm hoping it doesn't turn out to be some kind of thinly disguised tournament battle series...)

jolanar
December 04, 2007, 01:24 PM
i can see what you say about the matrix with the phone calls being how they are transported, but for me the impression i got from that chapter was that it was similar to gantz. it certainly looks to be a great manga.:D

December 05, 2007, 01:07 PM
I liked it more than what I was expecting, it's far better than all the new series of the Square Jump, it's a relief. I'll be following it for sure. It's very promising.




PS: It reminds me a lot Yu Yu Hakusho.

well, it was scanlated the first chapter, though it was LQ (prolly got to do with the amount of the papers).

Hmm yeah, I guess I mean what's considered mainstream outside of Japan.
And even then... Minoru Furuya and Makoto Isshiki (who I do series of that ran in YM and WM) are anything but mainstream even in Japan. The magazines they run in are basically more mainstream than the series theirselves.

so far the best one is kaiten(he and his team did some overdrive chapters a while ago)!some pages are still in MQ but the rest is pretty wel done and otherwise iff you want HQ HQ it best to wait till the v1 tanko comes out and some team picks it up.

I agree but I wanna go further - it's more like a matrix X Battle royal X Gantz shounen manga. I didn't like gantz either but it was more because of the setting and the art.

Iwashiros art is just so cool (a bleach x dragonball z art) but we'll see what the story will give us in the near future ;)

Hmmm.

The second chapter was good but a bit offputting. I'm a HUGE fan of Gantz, but I really hope that this isn't TOO much like Gantz. It might be interesting to see a shounen version of the "Death Game" subgenre though.

Who knows, maybe Amamiya knows something about it/him.

Something "Psy" will definitely have influence on this series though. That's an easy bet.

and the funny thing: psyren is read as sairen (sirene) and what announced the start of the game - a sirene :D

Anyways: you can't know for sure how to defeat the guy. But based on the fact he has a crossbow and amamiya got a sword - I assume that in the beginning they'll do a weapon/hand to hand combat

xi0
December 17, 2007, 12:04 AM
Actually it's spelled "siren" koen. "Sirene" appears to be some sort of cheese made in Bulgaria...:s

Well regardless, it will only confirm that Amamiya has been up to strange things if she can actually hold her on against the Robot.

I guess now the big question is, since Amamiya has obviously found the exit to return to the real world, why is she back in Psyren? By force or by choice?

(but the mangaka thanked the readers for the overwhelming response if we maybe believe the note in the front page of chapter 3)

hmm...i think this series already deserves an own section^^...

it really is nice...

was the Frank Jaeger Guys already discussed? i mean the one with the hauntig crossbow...
Jaeger is german for Hunter...and also Frank Jaeger is Gray Fox' real name (the one from Metal Gear, my fav. charakter)...

and Gray Fox looks like this:

and Ichigo looks with Yusuke Urameshi... ppl shouldn't stay comparing things

xi0
December 22, 2007, 05:54 AM
Eh, I think Ageha is closer in looks to Ichigo than Ichigo is to Urameshi, but I think it might have to do with the art style.

There's no denying that Iwashiro's drawing style is similiar to kubotite's.

haya5h1
December 22, 2007, 07:00 AM
And Amamiya looks like Rukia ...in fact Ageha and Amamiya are like Ichigo and Rukia with their hair colors reversed, except that Amaiya's is SUPER BLEACHED:XD The monster Amamiya killed looked like a Hollow too...I could go on all day about the stylistic similarities between BLEACH and Psyren:eyeroll, but I'm sure they're just cosmetic and Psyren will break its own path.

xi0
December 22, 2007, 07:54 AM
I don't think that centipede looks like a Hollow at all personally. I also don't see how Amamiya looks like Rukia either...the only similarities are that they are both tiny, and wield swords.

Really? It was the first thing I noticed when I saw the initial spoiler pics for Psyren, before I knew how long her hair was. She has that lock of hair falling across her face like Rukia does and if without her glasses, her eyes and face shape are similar too. then of course there's the sword, and the way she calls the male lead moron or idiot all the time.:XD (though that last is admittedly a characteristic shared by all JUMP heroines.)

Eh, I think Ageha is closer in looks to Ichigo than Ichigo is to Urameshi, but I think it might have to do with the art style.I was talking about how both are High School kids who are always getting in fights....cuz their looks are really different to me...maybe in the early bleach chaps they look like a bit more

Koen
December 22, 2007, 09:10 AM
Okay, I agree with the people saying the art reminds them of kubo. But I always think toshiaki has a bleach x dragonball z art (when the characters show emotions they remind me a lot about goku, vegeta etc the sweating, yeah I can't say)...

ageha and amamiya reminds a bit about ichigo meeting rukia and pulled into the world of rukia (amamiya for ageha) because of that meeting. But for the rest this can be original. Why? Well other people have landed in psyren too. Ageha and all others got a phone card. The test, etc I wonder what's psyren's goal. I think this one got more mysteries than the beginning of bleach

lupemavi
December 22, 2007, 11:16 AM

I think the same too. The mystery begans already from the beginning, in bleach also but it is not the same thing, in psyren enter in the first chapter on a strange world
Ageha = ichigo + urameshi xDDD

Psyren immediately reminded me of Bleach and YYH. And Ageha is alot like those two characters. Amamiya bears similarity to Rukia in that she is cosidered weird by her peers and doesn't make friends easily.

So chapter 4 is out.

It seems like the giant mean guy has aligned himself with Ageha and Amamiya. He said the skull cap kid was still around, but didn't he get a bolt through his back courtesy of "Alfred's" crossbow?

fxu
December 22, 2007, 11:37 PM
HAHAHAHA. Let's list the facts about this badass mofo.

Uses a crossbow (badass gun.. crossbow = ak47) (ch3pg20)
Name is [possibly] Alfred (ch4pg1).
Looks like a cook (ch4pg3)
Perhaps one of the best way I've seen of killing somebody in manga (ch4pg7) .. it makes up for his name being Alfred.


I fucking love him already.

Since Alfred sounds a bit mehh, I'll refer to him as "Al"

So chapter 4 is out.

It seems like the giant mean guy has aligned himself with Ageha and Amamiya. He said the skull cap kid was still around, but didn't he get a bolt through his back courtesy of "Alfred's" crossbow?

He could be dead. It all depends if it hit him in a vital organ.


I'm guessing he's gonna be half dead, but while Ageha picks him up to take him, Al shows up.

xi0
December 23, 2007, 01:22 AM
Yeah Alfred is cool, he reminds me of one of Nihei Tsutomu's "silicon lifeforms" from BLAME/BioMega.

Ageha trying to rescue everybody is sort of uncharacteristic of him in a way. Wasn't this the kid who only did stuff for money?

Being transported to another world and attacked by monsters changes people.

xi0
December 23, 2007, 02:51 AM
I'd agree I suppose, but I would have thought he would have been "every man for himself" with the strangers. That wouldn't be much of a Shounen protagonist then I suppose. LOL.

Koen
December 23, 2007, 11:28 AM
Alfred was calling out names when he killed almost the whole bunch. Where those the true identities of his victims. I expected the guy with the skull cap as a possible survivor. He was just someone who followed the group (while lots in the group were loudmouthed idiots)
[hr]
My prediction:
I think the world of psyren is our future world. The first chapter started about society problems like pollution of the world. The door leads to the underground where good guys lives but maybe because it's underground they can't get ageha and others directly in their place. Maybe that's why they use telephones and the map is maybe the easiest (as like the less dangerous) way to get to that underground world that fights against nemesis Q, alfred, monsters,... all created by mistakes made by humans in the past world (present for ageha, etc)

the question: why them?

Koen
December 30, 2007, 12:21 PM
Si it seems I'm close to what I was thinking: it's mt. fuji and japan. The main question: is it an alternate world? or is it a future world? I think it's the second one. But we'll know more later on though I hope something unexpected happens.

xi0
December 30, 2007, 12:27 PM
I thought that this might be coming. Ageha's reaction is almost exactly like Charleton Heston in Planet of the Apes when he saw the Statue of Liberty on the beach. LOL

ginrai
December 31, 2007, 01:54 PM
my theory about the psyren realm is somewhat different


i'm guessing it an alternate realm that bound with the choas theory so that the population of this other realm decreases and so the liveability of the psyren-realm hence him bringing people into it making them sacrifices and blaming them for the distruptecy of his world

also amemiya is acting somewhat similiar to yuno gasai imo!

No (it's not impatience) I am losing my interest too (going out to be attacked, seperating your ways to end up in the same place where you left with an ennemy that can't speak words or you don't anything about is lame). The mangaka will have to come up with something good (better then the mt fuji part - I expected that) and asap or I think this one might be dropped faster then mieru hito...

Though I'll just give it still shots since mieru hito had a slow pace too and his art (especially the fights) are awesome

Do you hear us complaining because it's bad? I think there's a difference between a slow pace and a bad pace. I can't say yet if it's bad because there are indeed interesting elements in the story.

But it has a slow pace and I still believe in the author and the story. You knw why? Imo mieru hito was a very good shounen too but that one had a slow start too. I think it became interesting after 12-13 chapters. So prolly psyren will go on that way too, though I hope that the monster dies and there's more explanation of amamiya. I don't like useless fights (okay it's obvious you have to fight the monster, but what's the deal with him? Crying out that name? and it's something we don't know yet. Amamiya has to tell more, she knows more)

If I were you I certainly wouldn't. Remember mieru hito became interesting when Hase came in (that was in chapter 9? 10?)

I think something interesting might happen in this upcoming chapters and It certainly got to do with that coward - I really don't trust him and he might be someone of psyren to get into past world

Maybe, but why bring them to the future to awaken the Psy? Why can't it be done in the present?

I think he's more sinister than that.

February 03, 2008, 11:58 AM
Well this was an interesting chapter if you ask me. So the psyren - the future world - awakens some powers. Really looking foward to that... I really wonder more about nemesis Q who he is, what he's up to. It seems amamiya and the other three aren't the only one but there's some other pleayers too with awakened psy

a question: scan - color page says: it's celebrating psyren's overwhelming popularity -> can we assume this serie is a hit atm?

It may or it may not. I think belmonde said that too, lol.
I have a strong feeling that it may be more euphemistic, as japanese tends to be overly-polite by convention. Even series that aren't doing well have had similar expressions that thank people for writing in--whether that be one postcard or like 5,000...get what I mean?

babelfish, what I think about

Amamiya calls ageha with telepathy. Amamiya tells him: she got her psyren card half a year or more ago (last year's winter when she left home to osaka) at a public telephone on the roadside. Encountered nemesis Q and without thinking she answered the questionnaire. Ever since then she travelled often to psyren. Ageha and amamiya are talking about something I can't understand. They go to a concert and there they meet with the woman who thaught amamiya techniques for surviving in psyren

You can't know at the moment which one is better, psyren is only 8 chapters far. But imo these first 8 chapters were a lot better than mieru hitos first 8 chapters. Mieru Hito became interesting when hase came in and there was that story of miyoujin and his teacher.

Btw amamiya is less annoying than the girl-whose-name-I-forgot in mieru hito. The character design is a bit different but in 8 chapters it's not suited to show everyone who'll make the story - so expect a bit mistery surround people/allies with psy powers, a possibility: people/villains with psy powers

What I like a lot in this manga and mieru hito is Iwashiro Toshiaki his art. His fighting scenes are more detailed and better drawn than naruto and bleach if you ask me (I remember that scene when he fought that fox guy and was standing behind him doing some dbz/kamehame attack - damned that was so great). His art/character design, I just love it and for me it's one of the better, if not the best

February 17, 2008, 02:22 PM
How can you call this manga after only 10 chapters mediocre? I really can't understand that. Don't misunderstand me, I agree some manga are so worse they don't even deserve 10 chapters or more.

Pysren just started: there's a story but only a piece is revealed. They are looking for something or someone they even don't know after ending a game (in case of matsuri). Imo this shounen gives more questions than answers. Yes: unrevealed or unanswered questions are annoying but if the answers are great then you'll certainly re-consider this one

It's generic shounen (but hey, is it easy to be original these days just like in movies, music, art etc)

I was away for a weekend:
honestly -> All chapters of all manga dissapointed me this weekend. No one was good? But I don't jump too fast in conclusions

Yeah I agree you have can have other arguments.

I think pysren starts better than mieru hito (like I said 100 times, this one became interesting when Hase came into the story and that girl was freakin annoying). Good you continue on reading it (I am also the type who won't drop something easy).

Example: one piece I disliked it when reading it. I didn't feel into following it. But someone said: just continue, when they enter the grand line, it'll become interesting. He was right, I read one piece so fast and was so mad that I dropped is so easely

k to go back on topic (and to avoid a discussion about when a manga can be called good or excellent): what do you think about psy? Is it an individual power that completely differs from others or will it be A POWER that's the same but will differ in the way of use

haya5h1
February 18, 2008, 10:10 PM
I really want to like this series, but I am becoming disappointed that Iwashiro seems either unwilling or unable to deviate from the JUMP formula. I'll hang in there for a bit longer since he seems to have a good handle on female characters at least. I really liked Himenon from Mieru Hito; and if Amamiya is that kickass when she's sick, imagine what she would be like at full power. Jury's still out on Matsuri though.

as for PSY power, it's probably customized to the individual. Like when Amamiya called out "Raizo" and started catching crossbow bolts in mid-flight - that's a different skill from Matsuri's telekinesis.

It is interesting the difference between Asaga's and Ageha's abilities, so maybe Ageha won't end up the prototypical boring main character...it does seem somewhat similar to Ichigo in Bleach.

well anyway: it's indeed interesting agehas powers are different. Maybe it got to do with some events that happened in psyren or something else.

Well I think the mangaka is doing a great job. He's not rushing everything, the story and characters don't fall in a spiral of violence. Okay training arcs (like they happened in naruto, bleach,...) haven't been my favorite arcs and they will never been (It's giving me a feeling of a slow pace). But at last the main character is someone who prolly doesn't understand anything and who's progressing very slow (and it isn't an annoying brat) to others, I am curious about ageha

well it seems psy: gives you different kind of powers and it was really awesome to see how asaga evolved working with it.

shrimpy
March 01, 2008, 07:25 PM
from the explanations in this chapter i'm led to believe that ageha is actually the strongest in burst, because it's the only physical power (note the hole in the table). Of course, he's going to be the worst at it in the beginning. Asaga might not actually be the strongest burst user, but may excel in rise too (physical power up)...and i'm guessing girly man coming up is the trancer, but honestly this can still go anywhere. They don't have a "team" yet. Plus, what happened to the older man? will he auto-magically know psi? or be cannon fodder?

in line with my theory on the characters actually causing the present future, i've been wondering that if psi power was activated because it was a disease...what will prevent it from spreading in the present...? After all, like matsuri said, the future is the effect of everything possessing psi...

First off, Oboro is a male...clearly bishounen. The manager is women...and she sort of looks similar to Amamiya's mother right? Earlier in the chapter Amamiya said she was into Mochizuki Oboro for no particular reason. This leads me to believe that that manager is Amamiya's mother...I don't know, I may be wrong.

shrimpy
March 02, 2008, 05:00 PM
What I understood was one, the part where ageha says his sister likes him is a reference to the fact that instead of going after guys she can, she's fantasizing about guys she can't. Basically, her last romance went sour and embittered her until now. (i understood that page with the title as ageha's thoughts, not amamiya)

As for the part about oboro being killed...um, what? Going strictly by what he said, all we know is he bought the card (probably for some enormous amount of money). It's unused, and because of his intuition that it's dangerous, likely hints that it's a real one. Remember back to the beginning...there are many fakes floating around. Although the last line of ch12 didn't use the word drifter in it (i added that), it really is a big giveaway because it literally said something like "does this man share their fate?".

Yeah I misread...I guess it was Amamiya's sister that fell in love with Oboro.....so what I meant is that Oboro's manager looks like Amamiya's sister.

Euhmmm now I am getting confused because of you guys?:

I thought amamiya was talking about a feeling she got when here mother left. I thought ageha knew that same feeling because of her sister and the break up with her boyfriend. Amamiyas sister had a cold reaction like I am gone, while agehas sister was looking that oboro and was prolly cold in her reactions too

March 02, 2008, 07:23 PM
Yeah, you're right Koen...my mistake.

That scene was clearly an introspective one by Ageha...I didn't read closely enough.

But the fact remains...that Manager sort of looked like AGEHA's sister.

Actually...maybe not.

I'll shut up now.

Heck, Matsuri looks more masculine than this new actor guy!:XD
anyway, glad to see the story is picking up after its somewhat generic beginning. Although I'm starting to get more interested in the setting than in the characters. The existence of Psyren is known pretty much all over Japan, to the point that it's the subject of a TV special and people are willing to pay thousands to be in Ageha's situation. That's kind of unusual.

(and anyone else think "LOL PERV" at Ageha's praying for power to "touch Amamiya in various places"?:jk)

It's really too much Bleach (Amamiya = Rukia, mysterious girl with a strange sense of humor; Ageha = Ichigo, thick-headed lead with latent powers) meets Gantz (2 old friends meet again, have to do battle in an alternate world, deplete a "number").
Not exactly something that I'd want to be reading.

interesting that you say that because I thought the last two chapters was when it started to show signs of diverging from the shonen cliche-ridden path (the first 9 chapters might as well have taken place in Hueco Mundo, complete with random Arrankar). It seemed like it was set up so that it could have ended cleanly at chapter 11 if it wasn't doing well.

don't you dare compare this to bleach. it has far more character development than bleach ever had.

Kenpachi: I will defeat you with BOTH eyes

kenpachi: shit...time for BOTH hands
uro: oh noes <dies>

that's pretty lame...

I just pick up this series a couple of days ago and I find it quiet interesting, out off all the new series that have come out I think this is the best one. Psyren feels like a mixture off both Bleach and Gantz.

It isn't about being scared of a discussion. But you must always watch out with a majority (I certainly don't suspect you being part of it) of people who can't discuss to the point or can't answer decently to the question, thus leading to an off topic bleach discussion

March 09, 2008, 01:39 PM
Well I had mixed feelings about this chapter:
positive was the progression in the story but negative is I can't make anything out of it, can't find any clue in this story.

Maybe I didn't understan the whole part but my two main questions are:
1. That old lady and the young boy, were they once psyren players? They have hidden powers and the old lady mentioned something of Nemesis Q bringing them back to psyren if he found out. Or are they from psyren?
2. That actor prolly has been in psyren too? or not?

- Important to see that destroying the card Nemesis Q killed that short guy...

- Was great to see that Asaga, my favorite character so far, is already passing to another level of training

I have been wondering but that old hag and prolly her grandson have some powers - fortunetelling and healing abilities - I wonder how they got those powers, it can only have a link with psyren.

I also ask myself: if Nemesis Q is good human or is he part of, prolly the leader, the villains in the psyren?

"You people"?

Like what was mentioned before, it's not the fact that you want to compare the series to it. I've done it myself with Gantz and Bleach...it's just that this is a Psyren discussion thread, and belaboring the point will only cause offtopicness and useless discussion. That being said, I guess I might have overreacted a bit. I was just afraid of the discussion spiraling out of control. These things happen in other sections, especially Naruto :eyeroll

The manga have some potential but Gantz was there sooner. It's too soon to tell if the manga is going to become a hit (or not) but I seriously doubt it. The characters have nothing original, the story either.

Koen
March 17, 2008, 04:46 PM
It's future Ageha! >:O

I bet the new perverted kid is gonna use his Psi to be a speed demon.

So that would mean future ageha waited till his past alterego, or better present ageha, got that power under control (if you can call it control, let's say he has been able to use it)

It's as amamiya said: it's strange that the call happens when ageha was just in "control" of his powers. The guy on the rooftop watching the holiday house while in psyren it's still unharmed over there isn't coïncidence either

And a last strange "coïncidence": asaga, amamiya and ageha seem to be the only one to have the ability to use some powers while others haven't. It isn't also coïncidence that the newbies are somehow on the same place with a skilled fighter.

It's obvious Nemesis Q chooses when, how and where our participants will fight and I am really starting to doubt he's future ageha. Btw he really reminds me of some Indian: the long hair, a face that looks like a totem,...

Wire
March 24, 2008, 06:56 PM
I don't know about him being all that shady, but I think it's more that all Oboro cares about is getting a thrill. Remember what he said 3 chapters ago about life being beautiful because its dangerous. This time he was interested in the idea of stepping immediately into trouble. This is still behavior that can and will get people killed.

Oboro and the skirt-chaser guy are obviously the only one who will survive though.

I'm still wondering about that kid Asaga met in the present though. He looked "mischevious". He is probably not in Psyren this round but he probably will be someday....

Okay,that color page confirms that the man standing in the last page in the previous chapter is Tatsuo(yes,his name is Tatsuo and not Tashio,I know the translator mistaked this cause the katakana "shi" and "tsu" looks alike).The chapter title for Call 17 is "Tatsuo".

Damn. I was picturing him with fire-red hair this whole time.
