'''''Enigme''''' is a {{manga}} series that ran in Shonen Jump and was written by Sakaki Kenji, who studied under Akira Amano (the author of ''Manga/{{Katekyo Hitman Reborn}}''). Haiba Sumio is a student at a Tokyo High School with an interesting ability. He occasionally falls asleep and wakes up with premonitions of the future written out on his "Dream Diary". With this ability, Sumio helps out people in trouble before anything bad happens, until one day when his peaceful life completely changes. His mother is kidnapped and he and his friend Shigeru end up trapped in a game known as the "e-test" along with five other people who also posess special powers. Winning the game will allow him to save his mother, but as he progress through the test, the mysteries grow deeper...

This series is a brilliant thriller with some similarities to ''Manga/{{Death Note}}'' and ''Manga/{{Mirai Nikki}}'', and is currently the most popular of Shonen Jump's series released in 2010. It ended in December, 2011. The plot is also very involved, so spoilers abound.

** It feels a lot like ''Film/{{Saw}}'' meets ''Manga/MedakaBox'', what with the inexplicably super-powered school kids and the life-threatening mind game situation.

* EvilPlan: Enigma [[spoiler:aka Kirio]]. He [[spoiler:sets up the [[PlotTailoredToTheParty e-test]] in order to find the person capable of becoming the next Enigma so that he can use this person as a decoy for the "enemy" who's after whoever has the Enigma skull, which will bide him time so that he can escape from prison and exact his revenge on the "enemy". This also allows him to be able to reuse the skull's ability to grant three wishes once he retrieves it, since he used them up previously After the e-test is done and finished he initially chooses Shigeru to become Enigma, [[TheMessiah Sumio]] decides to take it up instead. However, [[BatmanGambit Kirio reveals that he expected Sumio to take up the position anyway]].]]
