Tooru has been deaf for a year, due to a serious injury he suffered in a car accident. His handicap makes it hard for him to be in public, so rather than trying to live with being deaf, he just ignores the situation... Until one night he's scared to death by Tsukahara, a young erotic novelist, who comes to like him immediately.

After the first, shocking, encounter Tooru opens up to Tsukahara, who in turn comes to like him more and more... Things begin to get tricky when Tsukahara realizes that his erotic stories more and more star Tooru instead of the usual sexy female heroine... How will Tooru react to this once he finds out?

Wow, I reeeeally love this! ^__^
Naono-sensei always delivers great stories, but this one is simply amazing! XD The characters are really loveable and the plot is so touching. Definitely deserves a 10/10.
(Such a shame it's only a oneshot though! Would've been nice to see more of these two)

The whole thing was cute and beautiful. One of my favorite parts was when the main guy asked the novelist if he was SURE he liked him, because he was scarred and deaf and a man. And the novelist looked excited and asked if that meant the main guy liked him too. He totally skipped over the other stuff, and didn't notice. Very sweet for a guy who writes erotic novels... such a strange profession.

This one shot made me smile ^^ it was adorable and surprisingly detailed and well drawn out for such a short story. But then this mangaka is very skilled at taking an idea and adapting it perfectly for a limited number of pages without losing any of the detail or emotion involved. Really like this one :3 i wish there were more.

I was also confused about Tooru not talking, but wolftamer cleared that up. This was a really cute and sweet story, and I liked how the characters looked, but it needed more smex!! XD

It's surprising to see a sensory disabled person in a manga series. You see injury disabled fairly commonly, but no deaf, blind, or mentally disabled people. It's quite refreshing! And since it's Bohra, she gets you into the characters in a few short pages. I loved the conceit of hearing person accidentally using their loved ones deafness to confess secrets and getting caught out by lip reading. It's a very human like thing to do; people with crushes can be such cowards!

(Also, I'm assuming JSL is different than ASL as the signs seem different than what is being translated and that would make since due to the language structure differences. My ASL is about as good as my Spanish, i.e. 150 words and a few phrases, so I could just not recognize the signs as well.)

I know some people probably said this already but This is the firs time I read about a yaoi that had person that lost one of their senses. I thought it was pretty cool. What captured me the most was that Bohra expressed Tooru's feelings perfectly even though he couldn't talk. In all I thought it was a great story and I hope to read some more like this one in the near future.

I rarely read this author's works anymore but this one sounded so interesting, I couldn't pass it. And it was actually really quite good since there aren't a lot of manga about people suffering from various impairments.

@ sweeettart0991: He doesn't speak because, when you're deaf, you don't know how to pitch your voice, and hearing your words help you catch mistakes. And its also unnerving to hear nothing even though your brain tells you that you're making sounds. People with bad hearing tend to speak louder than others unconciously.
