It's nice to see manga taking on SF topics, and To Terra certainly deals with classic questions of dystopia and fitting in. Of course, being manga, that means you have to get used to reading backwards and waiting for the next installment... From release/information:
The future. Having driven Terra to the brink of environmental collapse, humanity decides to reform itself by ushering in the age of Superior Domination (S.D.), a system of social control in which children are no longer the offspring of parents but progeny of a universal computer. The new social order, however, results in an unexpected byproduct: the Mu, a mutant race with extrasensory powers who are forced in exile by The System.
