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]


Hidamari ga Kikoeru is set to receive a live-action film adaptation.

The series has been published in English as I Hear the Sunspot by One Peace Books since August 15, 2017. It has also been published in Polish by Dango since August 25, 2016 and in Spanish by Milky way Ediciones since 2016.

Story: This is a pretty unique shonen ai manga, because of the inclusion of hard of hearing characters. You don't see those often in any manga. The pacing is good. Some people might find it a bit slow, but I like how you get to see the characters warming up to each other. :)

Art: Great! It's very nice. The people don't look disproportional and everyone looks fiiiine. :D

Character: Taichii (dark-haired MC) isn't all that unique. He's loud, straightforward, says and does what he wants, gets into fights, kind, etc. You can find characters like him in many other mangas, BUT the author did a great read more

This one was hard for me...emotionally.

While the French translation of the title - "Entends-tu le chant du soleil?" OR "Can you hear the song of the sun?" seems so much more elegant, the manga's real beauty lies in its ability to convey the warmth and beauty of loving another human in a simple yet impactful way without falling into traditional OR societal conventions.

It does it so well - that it kicks up that feeling in your gut reminding you of when you felt that very same yearning and "wanting to care" for someone - even if it's a feeling you didn't quite have a read more

I didn't read much Shounen ai mangas, because they are mostly about to satisfy the fujoushis' and fudanshis' imaginations. But the Hidamari ga Kikoeru is totally different. The story is very lovely, I could identify with the protagonists.

I also had hearing impairment in my childhood (but it's been operated), so I know how does it feel living with worse hearing. It's really depressing, and you might feel that you are alone, because you hear the others badly. The manga showed it authentically, and it's great that Kouhei could find a friend in Taiichi, who helped not only as note taker, but he cheered him with read more

An amazing manga. It involves people who have difficulty hearing and how people who can hear clearly interact. Its a great volumes/books for anyone who is going through any time of disability particularly hearing difficulty/deaf. hearing aids, sign language, etc are also addressed.

Its well worth your time. The friendship, the art style, and the way things are brought up with different experiences is wonderful.

2 volumes total that I'm aware of. Both books are very relate-able and really adds to your own insight of what people go through in all sorts of experiences.
I love both of the main characters. read more
