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]

“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 ...

I really loved this manga when it came out.

What really makes this story stand out is the attention to detail on disabilities and how each side interprets certain situations. Marketably, this is a boy's love story, but this first part is so subtle that you'd probably not be aware of it until the end. Instead, this is a story about living in a world of miscommunication and trying to find even ground where everybody can stand equally.

The first two or three chapters are so good. It really hits you emotionally and it makes you rethink how you've treated people, whether they have a disability or ...

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 ...
