Karashima is a high school boy with a beautiful voice. So beautiful that he can make anyone do anything, just by saying the words. Because of his potentially dangerous ability, he distances himself away from people but soon finds himself in the middle of various criminal investigations that he can help solve, and a girl named Kokubu who seems in love with him.

This is my first review and I was waiting for the right manga/ anime to start with.
Akaku Saku Koe is a refreshing story plot. The series is shorter, which sometimes can make the story telling harder. In shorter series it either rises to the challenge or fails. This manga definitely rose to the challenge and suceeded in staying true to the plot and keeping interest.
The theme came across well, a gift can be a curse but people in your life can influence you for the good. The plot progresses well and the characters' change and growth moves well. This
story is definitely a character study. It centers around the character's emotions and reactions to events.
The art is clean and beautiful. It has a unique feel but at the same time the character design is simple.
Though some of the plots seem to be redundant the story is enjoyable. Because of the redundancy you can see the main character act differently and grow from one scenario to the next.
So, This review probably was too long for a shorter series, please bare with me since it's my first review.
Before I start,I want to tell everybody that this is my first review and to apologise if there are spoilers in it.Well I am not very good with the English language so please don't hate me if there are mistakes. :)
I will do my best.
When I saw the manga I was very happy because I like Midorikawa Yuki's works,and i like romantic stories.On the other hand i remembered about "Hotarubu no mori e" and it's sad ending and felt unease about reading it.But then i told myself:
-If you don't try it,you will regret.
Now I am happy that I red the manga because "
Akaku Saku Koe " was really enjoyable story and it has happy ending.
I gave the story 9/10 because it has that special Yuki-san's fealing in it,which is beautifull and kind and make you want to read more and more.
Well there could have been one kiss but it was still very nice and romantic.
The art is in author's style.And in my opinion it matches perfectly the atmosphere.It makes the manga easy to read.That's why i give it again 9/10.
I give the characters 8/10.The ability of the main male protagonist is interesting and whit his character makes him different from the typical males in the other mangas.While you read you can feel the girl's felling for him and that makes you empathetic.You want to help her,wishing them to be happy.
I really like that there is not any love triangles,squares...The other main male(Sakamoto) supports her's (Kokubu's) felling.
I suggest everybody who likes romance and a little bit of mystery and psychological to try " Akaku Saku Koe ".
Overall the story is a nice blend of action and romance, the shoujo present throughout and making the story feel real. You don't feel the typical high school type drama, but more action and character based making the story engaging.
Art is very simplistic, but it's drawn nice enough that you're never distracted.
The main romance really drives the plot, even though it does kind of feel one-sided at first the girl chasing the guy, it kind of finds it way later on in the story. Though at the end I kind of wondered if they rushed some things, or didn't rush enough.
really makes it just feel like a breath of fresh air reading this manga. The characters are driving the story and making it feel real despite the surreal aspect.
Overall this story is just a peaceful read but with some action scenes that make your heart pump. Sometimes the main girl kind of got annoying in the sense she kept jumping into danger to follow Karashima but unlike other shoujo protagonist her motivation felt genuine.
In the end this is 100% worth reading, especially if you're a fan of the Natsume Yuuchinjou franchise, the themes overlapping.
The only problem I have with it is the conclusion does feel a little out of left field, either I think they should have ended after Volume 2, or they should have kept going after Volume 3-- either way the ending is still satisfying and quite cute.
