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
off. No one could hear it but her. It's ringing in her mind. What can she do but answer it? It was fate. In the other line was a boy, a high school boy who's talking to her the same way she is talking to him...by their made up cell phones.
Just like that she is lonely no more. She has someone to talk to and at last a friend. Suddenly it occurs to them to meet. Aihara is going to learn the hard way that you can't change destiny.
It's well written, and by the time you finish you should ask yourself if you believe in fate or destiny. That's what this manga is about, more or less. That no matter what some things have to happen and you can't change them, no matter how much you try. They are not your choices to make.
I don't think character development was the main goal of it but it still did well.
You could see by the end how the main character changed and became stronger, but sometimes you have to fall down to really get back up.
The art in this manga is nothing out of this world, it's actually very real looking (as real as manga gets anyway).
This isn't your typical shojo manga. It's actually a breath of fresh air for someone like me who is constantly just reading shojo's.
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
in the art part so all in all it was a good manga.
"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.
As they helped each other in the simplest ways, both of them started to change for the better, especially at the end the girl changed a lot.
This was quite enjoyable, though a bit cliche especially at the end, everything went as expected, but for some reason it was still very enjoyable. An ending that was somewhat cheesy, somewhat touching,,,. To anyone that likes drama, maybe this isn't necessary everyone's cup of tea, but for me... it was spot on.
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
learn more about how the imagined phones work as well as the characters's past and drive to imagine a phone in their heads. Which I believe give the reader more reason to read on due to intrigue
