On the Wall RPG!

Filed under: News — Staff @ 22:25:26

Superheroes meet teen dystopia in On the Wall, a Fate World of Adventure by Carrie Harris based on her graphic novel of the same name.

All the dry-hand-washing supervillains in the world aren't half as scary as your average high school. The realities of being a modern day teen—drug addiction, cyberbullying, abusive relationships, absentee parents, the constant pressure to succeed—are terrifying. Add in a world full of normal, unpowered folks who are scared witless by all the superpowered mutants, and it's a pretty scary place to grow up. But that's just what you've got to do. Will you play it safe, or will you get off the wall and make a stand?

I Hear the Sunspot was a delightful surprise, and not a title that I expected to see One Peace Books license. For those of you who have been wishing for some slice of life character-driven shounen-ai manga, this title will easily fulfill your manga cravings.

The Outerhaven Reviews I Hear the Sunspot

Filed under: News — Staff @ 13:54:41

I Hear the Sunspot's story is pretty straightforward, yet, there are a few deeper layers to explore. It's more than just a deepening friendship between two people. It also explores the acceptance of others with disabilities in society, but does so from the point of view of someone who is disabled.

The third story about someone with hearing loss to come out in English in recent years, I Hear the Sunspot is also perhaps the most thoughtful.

Alex Hoffman reviews I Hear the Sunspot

Filed under: News — Staff @ 13:23:43

One Peace Books occasionally sends me a review copy of new comics they have recently released, and one of their latest is I Hear The Sunspot, a comic about two young men, one with a hearing disability, and the other, a brash interloper who agrees to take notes for this classmate in college in exchange for a boxed lunch.

Otaku USA reviews I Hear the Sunspot

Filed under: News — Staff @ 21:44:10

Kohei and Taichi are opposites, and that's part of what draws them together. Taichi is a loudmouth who has trouble keeping down a job, but his heart is always in the right place. Kohei is aloof and mysterious and mostly keeps to himself. Taichi grew up in poverty, from a split family, and Kohei began to lose his hearing at a young age after a bad fever.

AnimeNation reviews I Hear the Sunspot

Filed under: News — Staff @ 15:47:28

The slice-of-life story is subtle, affecting, and quietly incisive. The single volume revolves around college students Taichi and Kohei, young men of opposite personalities but common background who find empathy, respect, and a sort of love with each other. Although originally serialized in the boy-love manga magazine Canna, I Hear the Sunspot is best described as a thoughtful drama with an undercurrent of Japanese social criticism.

Aside from a few melodramatic moments, I Hear the Sunspot steers clear of Afterschool Special cliches and BL tropes, offering readers a thoughtful meditation on friendship and disability. Recommended.

Check out the full article:

Because of a hearing disability, Kohei is often misunderstood and has trouble integrating into life on campus, so he learns to keep his distance. That is until he meets the outspoken and cheerful Taichi. He tells Kohei that his hearing loss is not his fault. Taichi's words cut through Kohei's usual defense mechanisms and open his heart. More than friends, less than lovers, their relationship changes Kohei forever.
