"Welcome to a world where mysticism and science collide, and supernatural powers are derived from either science or religion. At the heart of this world is Academy City, an advanced metropolis whose population is comprised mostly of students. The majority of students are enrolled in the city's 'Power Curriculum Program, ' where they must learn to master their latent psychic powers. Out of several million students, only seven are deemed powerful enough to have Level 5 status. Meet Mikoto Misaka, the third most powerful Level 5 esper in Academy City. Together with her best friend Kuroko Shirai and the other members of Judgment, a student-run law enforcement agency, Mikoto delves deep into the dark heart of the scientific sprawl she calls home, and uncovers secrets she wishes she hadn't!"--Cover p. [4].

Interesting concept of psychic powers coupled with a pleasant art style. I very much enjoyed reading the first book and look forward to reading more of the series to see where it goes.

Don't get me wrong - I like magical girl shoujo manga, but this just didn't quite fit the bill. It feels like it wants to be a CLAMP publication, but it has far too much fanserv and is not as fun. Not a bad read though it could be better.

I love this series (even though the anime's better); Academy City is awesome, and so are the characters - Saten, Uiharu, Kuroko... and ESPECIALLY Touma and Misaka!
