"SATORARE" is a Japanese cartoon book (manga) whose motif obviously has root in thought reading victims. I believe "SATORARE" humiliate victims and I doubt these books could be published in other countries. You can by this cartoon book internet book stores. Some internet homepages introduce TV drama version of this as "TRANSPARENT" in English but I translate "SATORARE" as "PERCEIVABLE". The stories are too silly and I only translate the beginning part of it in English. Some native English speaker can translate it much better.


A person who has mysterious ability that his thoughts are perceived by people around him without talking.
