However, Yukari insists that the things she says she sees is true, and her vision seems to give her insight into the abilities of others.

Gaku thinks she's just weird, but she soon realizes that Yukari has unexpected talents. It seems she can fix anything, and even the police come to hear her insights. It turns out that Yukari's purple eyes are not unique in the world! However, there is one important distinction among those who see humans as other objects. Do humans appear as unimportant as objects, or do those objects appear as important as human beings?

It was a weird feeling for Saki when she received an inheritance from a father whom she had never even met before. And it got even more odd when she was required to live in a house away from her grandparents for a short while. But what topped off the cake was when Saki found out her roommates were going to be four other girls, all daughters of her father from different mothers, which made them all half sisters. They all range in age from the youngest at elementary school to the oldest already in college. From going to the only child to living in the house with four new sisters is going to be a new experience for Saki, but she is warming up to the idea of having sisterly bonds.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Murasakiiro no Qualia was really weird. I thought it was going for school-life-comedy at the beginning, but then it took a turn for the serious and surreal. Scipio to Hannibal would probably be interesting for fans of that historical period. Nijiiro Days was light and cute. Gota Keshi was the most realistic of this week's manga, and it had some pretty interesting cases.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
I liked the Shounen series this week. If you liked any of the big titles in the past few years, you should check these out for sure.

13 Game - I liked the original plot line. Teens gains power through death and abilities based on magic tricks. I feel like it has lots of room to grow and you'll see new kinds of abilities from enemies and the main character.

Dolls Folklore - Again, really liked the original storyline. It draws the reader in as it progresses because although it answers some questions, it brings up new ones that keep the reader glued to the pages.

My opinion:
13 Game sounds a bit interesting although once he kills 13 people, then what? I feel like he'd be sucked into another game in order to stay alive. Ad Astra - Scipio to Hannibal reminds me a bit of Historie, which is pretty interesting. The mystery element of Doll's Folklore has piqued my interest. I wonder how so many kids could go missing and yet the kidnapper is still not caught...

This "Ad" page about 13 game does't fit with the description. xD

Looks a little like Mirai Nikki, but I must admit that I'm interested.
