Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Ion Tsuburagi was born with the ability to influence events by chanting her first name as a spell. Ion discovers that her psychic abilities increase when she holds a piece of experimental metal developed by her classmate Mikado the "boy genius." Her powers-which allow her to fly and rescue classmates-soon take a backseat to a love story involving Mikado, who also happens to be president of the school's Psychic Power Research Society. Ion worries that Mikado is more interested in her as a psychic than a girlfriend. This manga is Tanemura's debut-her later Full Moon and Gentlemen's Alliance Cross are popular and more assured. Her author's notes in the sidebars are sometimes more interesting than the plot, revealing the story's muddled origins and providing valuable insight into the career path of a manga artist. A few pages of almost magical-girl-style psychic action are very well-drawn, but even Tanemura admits her early artwork contains too many decorative patterns based on strawberries, irises, lace and newsprint. Humor, ESP and romance coalesce well in this satisfying yet poorly paced early work by a talented author. (Apr.)

    Meh

    I borrowed this book from a friend, and it was okay. I won't say anything to spoil, but if you aren't a fan of one-shots or when a storyline seems to not be very detailed/confusing, you might find this kind of boring. However, the actual series this mangaka has written are VERY good, so don't ignore her for this!

    ION

    I love this story deeply, it was the first manga I have ever read.
    To give you alittle kick to buy it its about a girl who has...well...powers. ION is her initials.

    On eproblem though it the publish date, it did /NOT/ come out this year. Its actually pretty old. I read it three years ago.

    And there will most likely not be a second one, sorry.

    And Thank You For Reading.
