The evolving relationship between a hard of hearing boy and his note taker. Ugh, I love these books so much. These narratives fit so much into so little space- family issues, deaf issues, coming out fears, education, etc. Love.

This is a classic shounen-ai, boys love manga that will make your heart tighten. It is simple, yet full of life lessons and self-growth, as these two not-so-ordinary boys with unique personalities and traits, learn from each others differences and fall in love.

At its core, this is a sweet, gentle story of friendship and acceptance. The manga an easy read that still manages to make you care about its characters and feel emotions for them. I especially recommend it for fans of "A Silent Voice." It's important to note that the author originally did not intend to have any romance involved in the plot, it was going to be solely a story about friendship. However because she got a publishing deal with a BL magazine, she had to add some romance to it. Personally, I think the book would have been just fine focusing on friendship instead of romance, and you can kind of tell the author struggled a little to incorporate romance into her completed manuscript. At times the romance is placed a little awkwardly or goes fast. Nonetheless the author opted for a subtle romance, which makes the story all the more sweeter.

An absolutely lovely tale of friendship, romance, and trying to figure out who you are in the world, which can be especially hard when you're also hearing impaired. It has lovely art, and you definitely need to read the sequel "Theory of Happiness"

I wanted to like this manga more than I really did. The the hearing impaired protagonist is great to see, but the book's playing with chronology is are poorly executed and reveal themselves for what they really are--- a means to dole out conversations a piece at a time in order to artificially heighten the drama and stretch out the thin plot to a full volume. The romance also feels tacked on (something confirmed by an authors note which reveals the editor had to remind the creator she was publishing with a BL magazine).
