As a psychologist familiar with Asian cultures, Japan's included, I was naturally intrigued by the premise of this book. You can see right away how it is written like a manga or anime (something the author states herself), but it is done tastefully in such a way as to capture the audience without jumping into crystal, mech, and whale-sized bongo-boobs territory (which is to say stereotypes). I am also particularly fascinated with her description of hyper-vigilance, which appears to combine the scientific literature of both abused and gifted children with multiple Eastern philosophical practices and beliefs. A novel that should fit in nicely with the strong tradition of super-powered people and the lives they lead. Manga-ka's, get on this now before it becomes the next Deathnote without you!
