Synopsis

In middle school, Ichinose Kimitaka taught his friends how to play basketball. Despite his experience with the sport, his friends quickly outmatched him in skill. After an incident brought on by his frustration and jealousy, he was crushed to overhear those same 'friends' discussing how they wished he'd just kill himself.

On his way to toss out his special basketball shoes, he met a girl who was just as frustrated, throwing her own dancing shoes away. She was so tall, and her hands and feet are so large, that she had been rejected from her chosen hobby of Spanish dancing. He urged her to give basketball a try, and the two exchanged their shoes instead of throwing them away.

As he enters high school, Kimitaka learns that meeting him changed that girl's life for the better, and she is now a happy, social basketball player. Will Kimitaka be able to find the courage to make new friends and pursue his own talents?

I'll start off by saying that Tetsugaku Letra is realistic. There are no fancy dreams to be achieved, no flashy goals and boisterous characters, and read more

Let me start by saying that I am head over heals in love with this manga. Even thought I know that rating 10 is pretty much as high as it gets, still I would rate it even higher if it was possible!

Tetsugaku letra is a “slice of life” story by Sahara Mizu, also known as Yumeka, Sumomo. To be honest , I didn't even know she existed until a few months ago. It was one of those days when you get tired of reading the same story over and over again, and finally decide to go look for something special. While I quickly went read more
