The story starts with college student Taichi, who comes from a not-so-well-off household and is desperately searching for work. He (literally) stumbles across fellow student Kouhei while on a job hunt, and is incredibly enticed by the delicious bento Kouhei has in hand. However, something seems a bit off about Kouhei and when Taichi consults his friends about it, he gets an answer he really wasn't expecting: Kouhei is severely hearing impaired.

Hidamari ga Kikoeru - Limit
College student, Kouhei is hard of hearing and so he distances himself from those around him. He then meets Taiichi, a classmate who's got a bright personality and speaks his mind. "It's not your fault that you can't hear." When Taiichi speaks these words, Kouhei is suddenly saved by those words... More than friends. Less than lovers. His meeting with Taiichi will change him.

Vol. 1 - Hidamari ga Kikoeru

Really refreshing story for BL   
Rating: N/A

This is a GREAT read. I love BL, but am not a fan of the typical formulas for most yaoi or shonen ai mangas. What I'm referring to is the forced romance and smut that you will often see without any solid reasoning or story to support it. That, and the fact that many BL mangas seem to be purely fanservice. But this manga is truly touching and has a wonderful story supported by refreshingly reasonable, well-rounded characters.

I've seen a few comments complaining about the lack of romantic moments here, but I actually think that makes their relationship even more heartwarming because then it makes your heart flutter all the more each time there's a sweet moment. It's just nice to read a BL manga where the storyline and romance develop naturally and aren't just means to an end.

Anyways, it's great to see an author, especially in a BL manga, explore disabilities in such a realistic, non-dramatized fashion. The main characters are just adorable too and seem to behave like real people. I highly recommend if you're looking for a sweet and earnest story with an adorable main couple.

this is the best BL manga I've ever read so far ... (I read more than 200)
best choice if you like fluffy things more than smut things
characters, story line, scenarios I love everything about this manga everything fits perfectly.

i read in the epilogue that this is the author's first bl work xD and that she didn't intend the story to be bl at first lol

even though she might have been uncomfortable with the format at first im glad this came out how it did. it's so sweet and deliberate, a great first shounen ai work smile

edit: I JUST CAUGHT UP. IM CRYING OMG. this really is top notch work. the disability was utilized well and was a realistic barrier to the relationship as well as a conduit. i could really sympathize with kouichi's struggles and his desire to be heard and understood. brought me to tears, goddamnit. im glad this is being continued so i can cry more ;_;

I really liked the premise of the story, and the friendship between them but I feel like the storyline was incredibly slow and maybe I missed a chapter but Maya seemed to come into the story abruptly. The slow pace almost seems boring to me at some points, but the last 3 chapters made it up. I really liked the ending and how they sorted out the communication. It's a likeable story that was sometimes bland.

I just really wanted to see them kiss properly smile But the kiss isn't really all that important! What's important is the story definitely! (That doesn't mean I don't want to see a kiss tho) I also found the mangaka's note hilarious!!

and not just as a BL work, but as a story generally. i just finished the 2nd volume and i simply cant get over how perfect it was done. there are so many aspects that are depicted so well and it made me think a lot more than perhaps 10 other bl manga combined.

This is one of the better depictions of disability in manga. Deafness isn't romanticized, and it shows realistic barriers that people with hearing impairments face.

The romance also felt organic and realistic. The characters and interactions are well-crafted that the reader can easily understand why they fell in love with each other.

One of the best I've read in recent years!

First, the subject matter. I'm pretty wary about reading about disabilities in fiction because they often aren't handled well. But it's just done so well here, high points being
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Taichi's "It's not your fault you can't hear well! Why should you have to accommodate them?" and the role that the hearing disability plays both in terms of influencing Taichi's future career as well as how it's affected Kouhei.
I'm glad that there's more representation in BL, and am even happier that this story does it well.

Next, the art. I admit, throughout the first volume the faces looked kind of off but it was nothing too unbearable. The second volume is a pleasant surprise because the artwork has improved so much. The faces look a lot better, especially the eyes. It's nice to see the artist improving.

Lastly, the characters. I'm just repeating other comments here, but the lack of intense drama is refreshing and the feelings of both characters are beautifully developed.

Definitely one of the best BL I've read and reread (and I've read plenty). I'm definitely going to keep an eye on the artist's future works.

EDIT: IT'S OVER. I'M CRYING. Seriously, what a beautiful ending. I'm terribly sad to see this go.
