The idea of talking to someone you didn't know from a cell phone that didn't exist was too good to pass up on reading...

Aihara Ryo is not a regular high school girl. She doesn't think she is anyway. Every high school girl has a cell phone, she doesn't. Tired of wishing for one she decides that she'll get one. She pictures one in her mind so clearly she even gives it her favorite song as ring tone. One day during class, she hears her song on a cell phone and wonders why no one is answering. Not even the teacher asks to shut it read more

Nobody can hear me but you is a story of a timid girl who found a friendship through an invisible cellphone which can surpass even time space and how she move on with it as a tragic accident occurs. See Aihara Ryo's Transition, from a timid girl to a Head Strong girl throughout the story. If you're into drama, then this manga is worth to read.

For me, the art isn't that good (well not too detailed in some parts) but since the story is well written and well-paced as well as the character built was constructed very well, it overshadowed the deficiency read more

"I will not change the future, the past, as they are things that I felt that I had to do, maybe this is the so called inevitable fate."

Similar people has similar ways to interact, and through this story is about knowing someone through an imaginative cellphone. A rather simple story, about a lonely girl who is somewhat envious of people, and a kindhearted boy.

The characters were rather realistic on how they would approach a conversation through an cellphone of nonexistent, to doubt oneself's sanity when they could talk through this phone.The girl was a timid girl, but a girl that was looking to change. read more

I know my '7' overall rating does not compliment my positive review; its just as I read on, my guesses were always right which made me think that not alot of imagination went into the storyline. If the last chapter was different I would have given it an '8'.

The development of the characters was not rushed which made the manga seem longer than the one volume. It also does not concentrate too much on building a romantic feeling between Ryo and Nozaki (until the last chapter:); but concetrates more on character and storyline development. Due to this concetration of detail, we are able ton read more

Manga: Koe no Katachi
Both are stories about the inability to speak and about wanting to hear somebody's voice, even if it seems impossible at first. The atmosphere is in both works is serious and heavy, although giving off a spark of hope.

Manga: Kizu
Same artist, same author. They both convey a similiar feeling or sensation.
Both are sad stories, about lonely children who are drawn together by some supernatural event or condition.

Manga: Byousoku 5 Centimeter
Sad drama stories about distance between people and also distance in love. In both characters try to reach themselves, but in another way. Both have the same, melancholic feeling, though Kimi ni Shika Kikoenai is more dramatic.

Manga: Kon no Ki Konoha
They are both short stories with a very similar atmosphere. They both share melancholic bittersweet plots and delicate romance with a quite tragic end. They're both great mangas.

Manga: Can't See Can't Hear But Love
The similarity of both mangas are uncanny. I can't help but remember Kimi ni shika Kikoenai while reading Can't See Can't Hear But Love. Both have a very inspiring story that will make you cry not because it's heartbreaking but because its touching.
KNSK - The guy is both blind and deaf but due to a supernatural event, the girl could be able hear his inner voice through talking in minds.
CSCHBL - The main guy was blind and the main woman was deaf
While KNSK is more about supernatural, the main point of both stories is that they both show hope and light  read more

Manga: Orange
The 2007 version of the manga with the same name.

Both have similar themes and plots. In Kimi ni Shika Kikoenai, a girl, unable to get her own cellphone, imagines one in her mind. But suddenly, someone actually calls her--a woman; she also ends up talking with a boy whom she ends up having feelings for. Both manga have tragic elements and also have characters where the main character's future self contacts them.
