Yuki Fumino's Hidamari ga Kikoeru Boys-Love Manga Gets Live-Action Film
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Printemps Publishing's Canna magazine announced on Twitter on Saturday that Yuki Fumino's Hidamari ga Kikoeru (I Hear the Sunspot) boys-love manga is getting a live-action film adaptation that will premiere in early summer 2017.
The film will star Hideya Tawada (pictured left in above image) as Kōhei Sugihara and Akira Onodera (pictured right) as Taiichi Sagawa.
The manga revolves around Kōhei Sugihara, a college student who has distanced himself from others unconsciously because he is hard of hearing and it keeps causing one misunderstanding after another. One day his classmate Taiichi stumbles into him and notices his delicious bento. Kōhei gives Taiichi part of his lunch, to Taiichi's delight, but leaves without saying a word to Taiichi. Taiichi only later finds out from others that Kōhei is hard of hearing. Taiichi has a bright personality to the point of foolishness, and he tells Kōhei, "It's not your fault that you can't hear!" Those words save Kōhei, and he begins to change. Taiichi and Kōhei begin a relationship that's more than friends, but less than lovers.
Printemps Publishing released the one-volume manga in October 2014, and released a sequel volume titled Hidamari ga Kikoeru: Kōfuku-ron in May.
