Ryo Aihara, a shy girl who has trouble holding conversations, is the only one at her school without a cell phone. With no friends to text or call, she convinces herself that owning one is pointless. However, with a strong desire for a cell phone, she envisions an ideal one to every detail.

Despite it being a made-up device, Aihara receives a call and realizes that she is the only one who hears the ringtone. Apprehensive but curious, she answers the call and hears a high school boy on the other end of the line. He introduces himself as Shinya Nozaki and claims that he is also using a phone in his head. The bizarre circumstance leads to the development of a close friendship between Aihara and Nozaki, one in which they can confide in each other.

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
