Kouhei Sugihara lives in a world of total isolation due to him being hard-of-hearing. However, when the loud and boisterous Taichi Sagawa comes into his life, Kouhei discovers that Taichi's voice alone shines as bright as the sun. Easily misunderstood by most people, Taichi is taken aback when Kouhei notices his good-natured personality. Taichi's valiant personality urges Kouhei to demand more for himself, pushing him into the lively world that he had always yearned to live in. Through this, Taichi helps Kouhei find a community of people who are willing to listen and understand, though they might have to repeat themselves more than once. Through the ups and downs of living in two very different worlds, Taichi and Kouhei find a connection that transcends all barriers and runs deeper than just a regular friendship.

Hidamari ga Kikoeru is a touching story about loneliness, self-respect, and finding a bond through the commonalities that we all share as people.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

I'm going to start out with the negatives. The romantic scenes were definitely lacking but aside from that the communication and misunderstandings between the main characters, Taichi and Kohei are beyond frustrating.

Which I understand, those kinds of things happen which makes it semi realistic but I think it's just overly excessive and reused the same plot line of them having a lack of communication throughout the majority of their story. It was starting to become heavily repetitive and it seemed like they couldn't ...

“Looking for a note taker”

Words as simple as these can easily impact someone's life. "I Hear the Sunspot" tells the story of two college students who meet by chance yet end up closely intertwined in each other’s lives. While doing so, the story explores themes of isolation, self-regard, happiness, and social anxiety.

The dynamic between the reserved, hard-of-hearing Kouhei and the lively and vibrant Taichi is endearing. Kouhei is easily misunderstood by most people so he finds comfort in Taichi, who is fond of Kouhei’s good-natured personality. While the presentation of many themes is subtle, the manga is realistic and easy to follow. The characters ...

Mixed Feelings
I Hear the Sunspot is the kind of BL that would be better if it weren’t. Weren’t BL that is.

Most of this manga is quite nice – in the short amount of chapters it has it nicely describes the difficulties handicapped people might face and their interaction with society. It doesn’t resort to silly over the top bullying but rather a vague feeling of disconnection and discomfort, which feels quite more real. It takes a shot at both sides of the coin, both people that ignore the disabled ones because it’s easier and those that romanticize, perhaps even fetishize them with a sort of saviour’s ...
