Description: Hatou Manabu (nicknamed Gaku) has a very odd friend at school named Marii Yukari. Yukari has purple eyes and a bizarre way of looking at the world: she sees all living things as robots. This has not always worked out well for Yukari, even costing her a best friend when she was younger. However, Yukari insists that the things she says she sees is true, and her vision seems to give her insight into the abilities of others.

Gaku thinks she's just weird, but she soon realizes that Yukari has unexpected talents. It seems she can fix anything, and even the police come to hear her insights. It turns out that Yukari's purple eyes are not unique in the world! However, there is one important distinction among those who see humans as other objects. Do humans appear as unimportant as objects, or do those objects appear as important as human beings?

this has...went insane.

although when did Alice become distant to her? I thought she was brainwashed into being head over heels in love. and here I thought she was also trying for Yukari instead.

The Girl Who Leapt Through...Parallel Universes...

 

This has seriously been one of the craziest manga I've read in a while. Reminds me of all the love I have for ambitious pseudoscience-laden VNs like

Spoiler
. In fact, it feels like I'm playing one sometimes when I read this. I honestly didn't expect this from the start and the translations have been fabulous and impeccable for what might easily be confusing and daunting material. 

So...her goal now is to basically become so amazing of a person that people literally worship her as god? And then going by her theory that 1+1=2 only because humans think that way so the universe "made it so", and if people think she is god, then the universe will "make it so"?

 

Also, I am totally OK with this adult Gaku + adult and black hair Alice pairing.

Hehehehe....who called it?

 

<------This guy!

 

But really, how do you even write a story on this scale?

Easily, you don't. You write about the "bigger" aspects of the story and gloss over everything else.

 

You see this all the time in "war" stories. The author writes from a bird's eye view and ignores all but the major battles to avoid being bogged down in details. The readers are left to their own imagination and if they imagine the wrong thing but still follow the author's plot/conclusion; meh, good enough.

Wait, how is this not every romance manga ever, just on the meta-scale? I mean she got infinite possibilities, but not even once does she think of just straight off "confessing" (confessing everything, including the quantum-dangelangs and her "love").

Yup, it's a romance manga alright.

Plus, just look to what lenghts other romance manga go just to prevent the relationship from progressing - this is just one of the most elaborate misdirections (and hey, I like it better than an ever increasing harems, sudden aliens or childhood promises, but it's still a plot device nonetheless, so whatever).

 

Lastly, why do I suspect this even? Because it was there right from the beginning - Yukari doesn't see Gaku as a human anyway, but as a robot anyway.

So there is one character that could even come close to understanding the MC and it's even the love interest, but let's not talk about that, ok?

Can't we just say "Love transcends even time and space"?

Gaku is no longer a character. She's an amalgamation of infinite people into one mind. And ehr "love" is not standard romantic love (between girls). It's an obsession, that is destroying her slowly enough for her not to realize, but steadily enough, that there is probably no turning back.

I love how this falls into the trap of almost every love manga ever.

Why doesn't the main character just talk to the love interest?

Typical.

2) The issue about Yukari dying is her power, so the answer is simple : go to a world were Yukari has no power, so no reason to be kidnapped.

A world where Yukari has no powers is (or at least was) out of her reach, because if Yukari doesn't have her powers, Gaku doesn't become part of the hivemind. If Gaku isn't part of the Gaku hivemind, then that reality is not reachable by the hivemind. Now, since we're talking about infinite possibilities, that's basically impossible, and might be something, that Gaku merely fails to notice, and it might actually be the final solution, but still; A world, where Yukari has no powers seems like a world not reachable by the hivemindized Gaku...

 

 

Also, THAT AlicexGaku pairing...

I just realised....

Spoiler

 

No. She's already said that off all the people she has become the are still people she cannot be. Marii is one of them.

 

So there was, what, 15 sentences of dialogue in all this just now? At this rate, the final chapter's gonna be a physics paper. About destiny.

But really, how do you even write a story on this scale? We need to get through years of crazy what-ifs and a load of quantum technobabble every chapter to make this work. I'm not sure how you can even cram in another character aside from the narrator. And her personalities have pretty much blurred together. Doesn't work that great in a comic format.

Don't get me wrong, though. My mind is fucked so I'm happy for the time being. I just hope we can go back to a more personal level again. Especially with Yukari. Her character and her relationship with Gaku were cute and the whole robot thing was so cool, it's a real shame to reduce her to an objective.

 

When you write a complex story you do a lot of research, take a lot of notes and talk to a lot of experts. Still, they say you can only create a character who is as smart as you are and never more so, which is a good indicator of the author's IQ level right there.

 

Yes the original story was plenty interesting, in a very normal manga kind of way. I think this manga has transformed into something a lot more awesome than that and while I'm a little sad the original "sees humans as robots" angle has been lost in quantum physics I'm also pretty ok with that.

I applaud the translator for this series. If he/she/they didn't know Japanese well enough, the translation might have been lost. Kudos to them. 

I just realised....

Spoiler

I love this manga so damn much but it one damn serious mind f**k.

the diffrence is haruhi replace the old world with one that she likes, basically creating a new one, while manabu have to change the world.

 

basically if your chair breaks, if you buy a new one it would equal haruhis power, you still got a chair it won't be the same chair but it might look almost identically the same.

 

manabu is however too broke to buy a new chair so she needs to repair it, but she have no idea how to do so.

I see it more like:

 

Haruhi's power is to replace the old world with a new one one that she is willing to accept. (Through the power of the subconscious!)

 

Manabu's power is to replace the old world with a new one but NOT one she is willing to accept. (Due to the limitations of the conscious?)

basically if your chair breaks, if you buy a new one it would equal Haruhi's power, you still got a chair it won't be the same chair but it might look almost identically the same.

 

Manabu is however too broke to buy a new chair so she needs to repair it, but she have no idea how to do so.

A good comparison

So basically, even being a Haruhi can't save her?

she isn't like Haruhi, she understand how this work, a human being cannot be a god, so she needs to die, after she dies she will be acknowledged as a god, and then finally be one

So basically, even being a Haruhi can't save her?

Typical.

Basically, the strain of all these experiences seemed to be destroying her.........

So basically, even being a Haruhi can't save her?

The idea I have been nurturing for a very long time is that we see Gaku eventually found herself a JAUNT-equivalent, kidnap Yukari herself, and behave like a supervillain in front of the rest of the world just so that she appears unbeatable and nobody dares attack her beloved.

Wellllllllllllll..... Look at the chapter I just uploaded. :V

since she's falling deeper and deeper into instanity i do sincerly wonder how it will end, since she'll be far from the same person with that much life experience

The idea I have been nurturing for a very long time is that we see Gaku eventually found herself a JAUNT-equivalent, kidnap Yukari herself, and behave like a supervillain in front of the rest of the world just so that she appears unbeatable and nobody dares attack her beloved.

 

Worst : maybe she'd accept to torture the shit out of Yukari in one universe or two, in order to become even more powerful, and then become a supervillain in a new universe, in which she doesn't need to yield Yukari to anyone.

Is this the end?

 

If not, from what I understand, I see 2 solutions :

1) "Fate" can't be eliminated, but "fate" is only a set of realities, her doubles are right in the way if she exists, it means she can't win, but it doesn't mean a world were "she" is someone else, were Yukari live doesn't exist, it just mean "she" can't reach it.

2) The issue about Yukari dying is her power, so the answer is simple : go to a world were Yukari has no power, so no reason to be kidnapped.

 

I began this manga thinking it was boring and too slow, but also that there was something special... it took a while to begin, but after that it rocks.

With this chapter gaku has become the most overpowered main character ever. She was already the scariest.
