Guys and girls are more alike than you think. We all have our own stories of trying to fit in.

You’d think that mind-reading would be a dream come true. But not for Ayako. Mind-reading isn’t all that useful for an introvert with social anxiety. Especially when she can read the minds of the popular Toda and his friend Mana. Toda has a crush on Ayako but all she can read from him are perverted thoughts. It doesn’t help at all when Ayako can see Mana’s jealous thoughts about Toda. It gets simpler from here, promise.
Mousou Telepathy explores the realities of insecurity, social expectations, and tacky t-shirts. You don’t need to be a mind reader to worry about what other people think. If reading about a psychic who isn’t Jean Grey level of powerful interests you, give Mousou Telepathy a shot.
Tomo is a girl. Tomo likes karate, marathons and other rigorous physical activities. Tomo also likes her best friend Jun. But when Tomo tries to reveal her true feelings to Jun, he takes it as an affirmation of their friendship rather than moving on to the next step. It probably doesn’t help that Jun sees Tomo as another one of the guys. Did I mention that Tomo is a girl?
