Seeing the future. Seeing the past. Anything but what we see right now. This manga has all plus an endearing plot!
Land of the Blindfolded is a cute romantic comedy slash drama series. It follows the adventures of Kanade Outsuka, Arou Naitou, and Masahiro Namiki in their high school days. Each has a unique talent and something special happens when they touch another person.
With Kanade, when she touches someone every so often she can see the future of that person. If it happens to be a bad future she will do anything to change it for the better.
Next there is Arou-kun. He can see the past everytime he touches anyone or anything. At first he has a stand offish approach to helping others but soon warms up to the idea as his girlfriend Kanade continues to throw herself into trouble to help others.
Last but not least is Namiki-san. When he puts forth an effort he can see the future as well. He has a smart mouth and can easily be mistaken for a bad guy but is not. He is in love with Kanade but is often thwarted by Arou-kun.
The trio are often found in dangerous situations in which only their powers can they triumph. There are situations where they are misunderstood for their powers are only known by a select few. It all has to be kept secret.
The art is beautiful to the point that it's enthralling. Very simple but amazingly done. There are also painted images throughout although they are in black and white.
The language is simple but has deep meaning. It's very flowing and never seems to jump from conversation to conversation. It all blends very well together.
With the continuous problems and the amazing back stories behind each character, it's a really good read. Lots of drama and life lessons too. And with the romance elements its a real stick to you manga.
There are character profiles at the end of each volume. There are also author notes in the extras. Plus cute side comics every so often.
This manga puts emphasis on the importance of family and acceptance. Give it a try.
