I’ve been on a real boys love kick lately, so I decided to finally read through Yuki Fumino’s I Hear the Sunspot. The series focuses on the relationship between a hearing impaired college student and his cheerful and outspoken classmate. Originally released in 2014 as a stand alone volume, the story was expanded into a second volume, I Hear the Sunspot – Theory of Happiness and then again as the ongoing series I Hear the Sunspot – Limit. The series is currently licensed in English by One Piece Books, I picked up the first two volumes at con and I fell in love with the series, so when I saw them up for pre-order on Amazon, I snapped the rest of them up as well. Unlike most of the series I buy, I Hear the Sunspot is an ongoing series, with only four volumes available in print (as of this writing).

Bought this series ages ago, but finally made the time to read through all the print volumes and I need more!!! I Hear the Sunspot is such a phenomenal series, not just for the way it handles the relationship between it's main leads, but in how it deals with the topic of hearing impairment. Gaaaaah, I can't wait for the next volume to be released! I seriously need to know what happens, like yesterday! And the way this latest volume ended… I need closure! #ihearthesunspot #hidamarigakikoeru #yukifumino #manga #BL #boyslove #shounenai
