Far in the future, humanity has trashed the earth and been forced to move to other planets. But in regret, they have dedicated themselves to restoring Terra by setting up a system in which children are raised by foster parents then put through a computer-aided "awakening" that takes away the first fourteen years of their memories and transforms them into citizens worthy of living on Terra again. The new adults are then shipped to Terra, where they act in socially desirable ways, which somehow prevents humanity from destroying the environment again.

Also! Thanks to the computer system that basically organizes all of human society, psychic kids called the Mu have started being born. They have psychic powers but are physically frail, and humans want to eradicate them. Jomy Marcus Shin starts life as a normal foster child on Ataraxia, but when he approaches his fourteenth birthday, he discovers that he's Mu.

And off we go on a huge story line that spans years and years and concerns the fate of a planet!

I wish I had enjoyed this more than I actually did; I've been dying to read more works by the 24 Year Group. The art didn't bother me, but I found myself a little bored by the storyline. It also didn't help that I had an impossible time keeping track of all the jumps in time and where all the characters were at various points, but I am not sure if that is because the series was confusing or just because I have a difficult time tracking these things.

All in all, the plot may have been interesting, but I simply didn't care enough about any of the characters to get emotionally involved. Also, it would have been nice if there had been more women.
