    Ion has always believed that something good will happen when chanting your own name. After getting involved with her classmate Mikado's experiment for telekinetic powers, Ion finds not only does chanting I-O-N bring her something good, but also allows her to use psychic powers. In addition to her new powers, she also begins to fall in love with Mikado. He, however, only seems to think of her as an interesting experiment. I.O.N was the second manga I ever read and bought - way back in 2004! One may think my rating is nostalgia influenced, but I genuinely like this cute short story. Ion is a nice upbeat kind of character and the idea of chanting your own name for a little bit of magic always struck me as a nice and unique concept. Ion is friendly and caring - and sometimes a little silly. I think she could have been a very nice character had she had her own series. This being a short story, of course, didn't leave her much room for character growth. But it is what it is, and Tanemura let the story develop smoothly in the few chapters available. Some of the psychic scenes are among the cutest I've ever seen. I adore how Ion, when lying on the ground, uses her powers to hover just a little above the ground to embrace someone she cares for. It is really just a short and simple story, but it is so nicely executed that it gives me a warm feeling when reading it. The art is cute, it's almost entirely drama-free and I love the author's humour of her earlier works.

    It's...okay? It's definitely cute, but I guess Gentleman's Alliance appeals to me more. Tanemura's style is also more defined in that one.Here, it's like...trapped in 1996 and it's a little jarring to look at for me and I really can't explain it anymore than that.Woo?

    Eh...this book was unbelievably weird, and it wasn't drawn all too well. Also, who names their kid Ion? Who lets their spouse name their kid Ion?

    This is my first anime and I really enjoyed it! I loved the fun pictures, the little the making of the bhoo notes on the side of the page but when it came to the story, the romance wasn't really my sort of thing. I loved how quick it was to read and I'll definatly be looking out for more anime

    A cute little one-shot story. I love Arina Tanemura but as this was her first book, I can see a lot of her style was still fairly undeveloped. This one was pretty basic and didn't have a lot going on. I love almost everything she does so like I said, it's not bad, it's just not the best :)

    Bought from Amazon, and I still own a copy.APART OF THE GOODREADS 2012 READING CHALLENGE.Review/Rating:4 out of 5Ease of Reading Text: 5 out of 5Illustrations: 5 out of 5Plot: 5 out of 5Art Touch-Up: 5 out of 5Translation: 4 out of 5Design: 5 out of 5When Ion Tsuburagi chants her first name, good things happen to her. However, when she meet Mikado and touches something he’s been developing, her powers start growing into something more. What is the thing she touched; and why is it giving Ion special powers?I really like Arina Tanemura’s works — I have two other works by her. Her artwork is always quite good. All her character pretty much show a happy personality — rarely ever sad, but hides their sadness under their smile — and this one volume manga is no exception.In this manga, there a couple of places where the artwork could been better, but you hardly ever notice it (unless you are really looking hard). ;) I love all of the characters’ personalities, even Ion’s happy-go-lucky one — especially when she turns into Kitty Ion (so cute). <3 Even Psychic Man’s small appearances were enjoyable. The designs for each character were wonderful, especially Kouki, the student council president, with his hair down. *drools*Now that gotten the artwork part done, now for the plot. The romance is cliche, especially for a shoujo manga, but it’s still very enjoyable. I like how subtle the supernatural theme (telekinesis) is, and how it doesn’t clash with the romance parts. I kind of hoped she would end up with someone else, but oh well. :PAnyways, overall, Tanemura put together a wonderfully drawn manga that I enjoyed very much. However, that’s not all, we need to go over how the Translation, Designing, and Art Touch-Up/Lettering people did from VIZ.The art touch-up was very well done, you could hardly notice the errors in redrawing from where the Japanese was at. Also, I loved the cover design that VIZ did for the English version of ION. However, I wish some of the wording for the sentences and SFX were just a little bit better. Overall, VIZ did a pretty good job bringing this Japanese manga to life in English. :D

    Von Arina Tanemura gibt es mehrere Mangas und bisher kannte ich nur Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne. Zeichnerisch hat mich Tanemura mit allem überzeugen können und natürlich war ich auch neugierig auf ihre anderen Werke. I*O*N ist ein Einzelband, dem ich nicht widerstehen konnte.Die Story hinter diesem Manga konnte mich trotz der eindrucksvollen Zeichnungen aber nicht wirklich überzeugen - was ich leider auch bei manchen Jeanne-Bänden/Szenen hatte.Hier geht es um Ion, ein junges Mädchen, dass eigentlich nur ein wirkliches Kriterium für ihre Traummann hat: Er muss einen Traum haben, den er unbedingt erleben möchte. Da taucht Mikado mit seinem Wunsch nach telekinetischen Superkräften natürlich genau zum richtigen Zeitpunkt auf.Um ihn zu beeindrucken, gründet sie eine Arbeitsgruppe zu diesem Thema und nach einem Blick in sein Labor, bei dem sie mit einem Stein in Berührung kommt, passiert etwas mit ihr. Sie hat plötzlich telekinetische Fähigkeiten und kann damit sogar Menschen retten. Allerdings nicht ohne dafür zu bezahlen: Ihr Körper ist geschwächt und was sieht Mikado in ihr? Ein Mädchen, in das man sich verlieben kann, oder nur ihr neuen Fähigkeiten?Mit Ion wurde ich nicht wirklich warm. Der Moment Ich verliebe mich gerade kam mir einfach zu plötzlich. Ihr Auserwählter Mikado war auch kein toller Charakter. Ziemlich ruppig und nur begeistert, wenn etwas positives für sein Projekt passiert ist.Der einzige, den ich einigermaßen niedlich und witzig fand, war der geheimnisvolle Tagosaku, der unglaublich niedlich und tollpatschig gezeichnet ist und dadurch etwas von einem Hundewelpen hat. Er schleicht auf Wunsch "seines Meisters" - des Schulsprechers Koki - hinter Ion her. Koki versucht mit ziemlich verzweifelten und selbstbewussten Aktionen Ion's Herz für sich zu gewinnen. Das war auch unterhaltsam.Insgesamt wieder wundervoll gezeichnet, auch wenn die Emotionen aus den Bildern diesmal nicht so wirklich bei mir angekommen sind, was wohl daran liegt, dass die Story wenig an Gefühl zu bieten hat.

    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog is Tanemura first series - and it shows. Dating from around 1996, even the author apologizes for the inconsistent story and unrefined artwork. Yes, it has a spark of the charm that would appear in her later works. But the story is clearly one that started as a one-shot and just kept going for the sake of popularity rather than integrity. It's cute - but it's also all over the place and clearly wasn't plotted out in advance. This volume completes the story.Story: Ion has a gift - if she chants her name, she can make good luck happen. When she's recruited by the cute boy who heads the psychic club, she's ecstatic. He helps her grow her power and become even stronger. But she feels he only wants her for her gift and not to be his girlfriend. Can Ion change his mind?Nearly all the cliches are here: rival appearing suddenly from another school, another 'eligible' boy also wanting her, misunderstandings/miscommunication, and the love interest turning her down for fear of 'hurting' her feelings. It's almost shoujo by the numbers - probably not even original back in 1996.Speaking of 1996 - this has, perhaps, not aged very well. The slouchy socks and endless hair ornaments are, admittedly, kind of wince worthy. Perhaps best suited as as a nostalgia piece as a result. It's not egregiously bad - but it is very much a manga of its time.Tanemura fans will likely enjoy it, even with its admitted flaws. But those looking for a fresher and more sophisticated read might be disappointed by Ion.

    Ion Tsuburagi chants the letters of her first name as a charm to bring good luck when she needs it. Then she meets Mikado Hourai, the president of the Psychic Powers Research Society at school, and touches a mysterious substance he's been developing. Now chanting "I-O-N" gives her telekinetic powers.I picked up this manga because the synopsis sounded very cute and fun. I liked the idea and thought it would be a very quick and lighthearted read. I did enjoy it at first but after reading this manga for a awhile I started to get annoyed with the characters. Ion was okay most of the time but at sometimes her personality annoyed me. Mikaru was the most annoying guy I have ever read in a manga. I do not mind that his goal is a bit childish(he wants to research people like Phsycoman who is a T.V. show character) because I thought that it was pretty cute. But when the romance was starting to come in to the story he got annoying FAST. He stays indecisive throughout the whole story about how he feels about her when the answer is right in fron of him. I was happy that the manga was short or else I would of probably givin up on it. The art was pretty decent most of the time so no complaints there.3 Stars.

    Ion Tsuburagi has always been able to make any wish she desires come true by chanting her given name slowly and intently. Then, in High School, Ion encounters a boy in pursuit of his dream-- he wants to study and understand psychic powers! When he is gone one evening, Ion sneaks into his makeshift laboratory (a shed in the back of the school) and picks up his research material-- a substance that looks like a strange and familiar stone. When Ion picks it up, however, there is a strange electrical charge and Ion gains psychic powers to fly and do whatever else she will! The substance appears to have actually amplified her already present power... so then does that mean if she wishes for it, she will be able to make her crush fall in love with her?!This is so cute. Such an Arina-esque story too. Alala~, ROMANCE! I'm glad I own it. :3 I should have read it much before now though. I've had it for probably three years and this is the first time I made it all the way through chapter two! Although Ion's relationship DEFINITELY will not work out, it sure is cute! I kind of wished that she would have ended up with Kouki instead... Oh well! At least all is well and all is happy in the world of I.O.N! :D

    I.O.N Vol. 01by Arina Tanemurappg216 usaviz mediaisbn:9781421518008In this book i liked the mystery of every thing and the way she put the story. the flash backs really explained alot.She was very good at the order she didnt give us a clue what was going to happen but we guessed any way and i liked thta there was no way you would have guessed what happened.I also really liked how they were able to pick the tiltle becasue the title really is the actaction i saw and also it really is the main idea of the book.I tohught about that and actually rember how she uses it in the book and it makes me wish i had something like that and it reallly pulled me in. the fact that she was able to make it so that the second main charater was almost as important as the main charater becasue you cant do wiht out the main charater but now you also cant be with out the second main charater and even the third main charater is imoortan t to the book makes the charathers needed and i think thats good.

    Ion's weird first name aside, I.O.N. is a cute, one-shot romance. Though it's one of Arina Tanemura's earlier works, I didn't find the artwork or the characters to be lackluster; despite the relatively short length, Ion, Mikado, and their compatriots all develop within this six chapter work.I didn't think the story line was the strongest; it relied on a lot of cliches and required Mikado to be an absolute dolt when it came to his painfully obvious feelings for Ion. Ion's really weird name also detracts from the story a bit - why have such a weird name? There are other short names that she could chant just as easily - it doesn't appear that Tanemura was trying to allude to the Greek play Ion and my only guess is that she wanted to make some scientific allusion to chemical ions in this magical substance Mikado made? Not sure.I've read this manga a few times and I liked it well enough, but I doubt I'd go out of my way to read it if I didn't already have it.

    "I.O.N." is one of Arina Tanemura's earlier works, so I expected the quality to have been a bit lower than her famous serials such as "Full Moon wo Sagashite," "Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne," and "Shinshi Doumei Cross." On the contrary, this book is just as good as what made her a big name in the manga industry.This is a cute story, and I was glad that Ion didn't fall in love with a jerk -- as that's a common trope in the shoujo genre, and it's sickening at this point. Mikado isn't really a jerk so much as he's just an idiot that needed a serious clue-by-four.Not as good as the other one-shot manga by Tanemura that I picked up with this, which was "Mistress Fortune," but it was still amusing and nice to read.

    For a one-shot volume (six chapters I think?), Tanemura manages to fit a good amount of plot and character development into this book. I was pleasantly surprised that the love triangle was resolved, with the two girls becoming friends -- I wish more series did that.The student president, who kept grabbing Ion, followed her around, and wouldn't take no for an answer, was an incredibly uncomfortable character.Still, the charming side characters and Ion herself is enough to make up for that.I'd highly recommend this is if you're a fan of Tanemura's work, or wanted to start reading her work.

    Arina Tanemura is a great Mangaka and I really like her style. This series is only 1 volume long and has less drama than some of her other series but is really good. This is a really fun story about a girl who discovers she has psychic powers and what she does with them. This story is also about how she falls in love with a boy that admires her powers and the relationship that develops between them.Contains Chapters: 1 - 6Chapter 01.) A Miracle in Three SecondsChapter 02.) Private HeroineChapter 03.) Triggered by a Dangerous SituationChapter 04.) The Supreme Principle of LoveChapter 05.) The Day to Say Goodbye to a BoyChapter 06.) Hidden Powers

    the story develops in a nice climatic way. the artwork at times gets a bit shaky, but that might be b/c i don't like the aesthetics of one characters. it's like playing that game from sesame street, "one of these things doesn't belong here..."it's a very cute story, done in a lighthearted way. i did think it was a bit odd that everyone was so accepting of psychic powers. i guess to have others not accept someone having telekinetic powers (maybe thinking it's freakish, or something to that effect) would have lengthened the series, and maybe was not a route tanemura wanted to venture.

    ION es un tomo único que me ha decepcionado bastante. Esperaba encontrar un tomo entretenido, como el anterior tomo único que leí de la autora, pero me he encontrado una historia repetitiva, que me ha costado de leer y que ni sus personajes salvan ya que son igual de planos que la historia.Lo recomiendo únicamente para fans de la autora porque la verdad es que es un tomo que tiene poco que aportar.Reseña completa: http://elesconditedelaspalabrasperdid...

    Ich liebe Arina Tanemura's Zeichenstil. Auch, wenn ich am Anfang echte Probleme hatte in die Geschichte reinzukommen, weil ich von "Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne" ziemlich gebranntmarkt bin und daher in 80% der Charaktere immer einen aus eben dieser Mangaserie sehe. Nach dem ich das, nach ein paar Seiten, hinter mir gelassen habe, konnte ich mich vollends auf die Story einlassen.vollständige Rezension lesen:

    С мъка на сърцето давам толкова малко звезди. Ама няма как. Колкото и да харесах Камикацзе крадлата Жан, Арина Танемура изобщо не ме впечатли с Ион. Предсказуема и банална история. И арта нещо куца въпреки, че се познава стила. И тия "психични сили" нещо не ми вдъхват доверие...

    "Ion said that her powers disappeared after she gained weight, right?"This quote a few pages before the end is what made me dislike the book. The story is silly and cute but this line killed it for me.

    The heroine of this book bothered me. A LOT. She was unbelievably self-centered until the end, when she finally confessed her love.Arina Tanemura has definitely had better art, and I would've preferred that she redraw everything before releasing this book.

    This is Tanemura- sensei first work ever! Of course it is magical girl with some marvelous romance. Sadly it is only one volume of six chapters, quite enjoyable. I.O.N is fun a read about a girl with telekinesis (a power I would love to have).

    I read this manga for the Mini Game Challenge in the Manga Book Club... I wasn't thoroughly impressed with it. It was an alright storyline. The art was okay. There really wasn't anything particularly special about this one shot. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. It really was just ok.

    Awesomeness! I have been dying to read I-O-N and you know it was pretty awesome, a little bird told me there was a sequel and I was like "shit what?!" don't know if it's true but I am investigating! Which is kinda crazy cuz this book came out forever ago, so we'll see!
