The first volume covered a lot of information on the premise of Psyren and its world. Much better to start reading there than jumping in with volume 2.

As Ageha and Hiryu recover from their first experience with Psyren Sakurako provides much needed context and introduces them to her teacher, who has some surprises in store about their situation and… new powers?!

This is a great follow up to volume 1's strong start. The mystique surrounding Psyren is properly intriguing and mysterious, with just en

The characters have managed to get back from Psyren -- a devastated future Earth overrun by monsters -- but unfortunately their journey is far from over.

And "Psyren Volume 2" introduces new characters and new powers to this intriguing manga series, as well as more answers about what exactly is going on. Author Toshiaki Iwashiro manages to add some intriguing twists to the usual action manga tropes (power-ups, mysterious mentors who know everything about the power-ups, katanas), while also buildi

Not sure what happened here, there was a huge drop in quality between this and the first book in the series. I was excited to see this series doing new and innovative things but this second volume relied on tedious shounen tropes. In fact, it draws a bunch of similarities to Bleach, a much older and longer running series, but it's nowhere near as well executed and ends up feeling like it's trying to copy the success of that instead of blazing it's own trail. It also, like Bleach, subjects the re ...more

Sakurako, Ageha and Hiryu have survived Psyren, but Ageha and Hiryu still have many unanswered questions. With the help of Matsuri-sensei, Ageha and Hiryu learn how to fight in the Psyren world. While Hiryu excels at using his psionic powers, Ageha struggles. I hardly no time at all, the three of them are transported back to the realm of Psyren along with other people who have stumbled across the read phone card. Most of the others are killed but Oboro Mochizuki, a famous actor survives.

To me the introduction of Matsuri Yagumo, Amamiya's psi teacher and a concert pianist was so well done. In engendered a liking for the woman in me so that I anticipated meeting her before the meeting. Learning about Matsuri through Amamiya's back story (detailing her first uses of the card and getting to the level she is today) really was so clever to me.

I liked all the rules and how there is are set qualifications you have to meet in the game before you can return. And the idea of psi was reall

really liking this book volume is just expanding this world and its so interesting but ends on awesome cliffhanger with this character who looks badass.

I actually thought that this was pretty good for a second volume. It works on developing the characters nicely, even showcasing their flaws, which is something that I feel that not a lot of the books I've been reading have really been doing. There wasn't a whole lot of action, which might be why so many disliked this volume. It focused more on advancing the plot and explaining things, which is really what I'm reading this series for anyway.

A great sequel to a great beginning this series is amazing I love every second of it. Psi power was a great addition to the story because it would be boring if they were only normal people then they would die very quickly.
Daniel Sepúlveda
Excelente serie, se merece las 5 estrellas.
En este volumen se puede aprender un poco más de Psyren y el Psy.
Definitivamente voy a continuar esta serie!

The story gets better and better.

The addition of new characters seems to me a smart move but I hope the focus of the old ones won't be lost.

Okay I'm sold. I hope the cast stays this likeable/intriguing, it'd be nice to have a traditional shonen manga I'm actively into again. 3.5 stars

I am really enjoying this series. It definitely has the potential to reach 5-stars in the future if it keeps this up.
