Overview

Get ready for Tsukuba Sakura's symbolic tale LAND OF THE BLINDFOLDED, in which one character can only see the past, and another can only see the future! Originally presented in LaLa DX magazine from Hakusensha between 1998 to 2004, the 9-volume LAND OF THE BLINDFOLDED 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?

Land of the Blindfolded is essentially a slice-of-life, shoujo title with slight hints of the supernatural. While the plot itself may come off as a bit flaky at points, the writing style makes up for it and keeps the reader intrigued(as in Tsukuba's description of the main character's "blindfold" when seeing the future; that aspect alone made the typical "heroine-sees-the-future" storyline have a life of its own and not drown in unoriginality). The characters can be both the upside and downside of the story, depending on how you look at them. They are, on one hand, the epitome of your average shoujo title cast: Kanade is your happy-go-lucky heroine, the Tohru Honda-esque character; Arou is one half of the love triangle, the silently troubled boy who is very protective of the heroine; and Namiki is your bad-boy-who-isn't-actually-as-much-of-a-bad-boy-as-you'd-think(sheilding puppies in the rain, anyone?). The main premise of the story is their love triangle and how they interact with each other, so if this type of story isn't your thing, you probably won't enjoy. The characters' upside, however, is that they also manage to have a certain amount of realness that makes them relatable to the reader. They all have defined flaws and weaknesses, and they all have moments of success and failure. They are evenly balanced in that regard. Art-wise, while Tsukuba's work is cute and appealing to look at, there isn't anything new brought to the table. Overall, this title is ideal for someone who is really looking for something heartwarming that will make them smile, but the hardcore manga enthusiast who looks for something new or revolutionary will probably not find it here.

this was a very good book but the only problem i had with it was that it would restate the same thing over and over again but other than that awesome book!
