Press release as follows:
NEW YORK, March 8-The anticipated I Hear the Sunspot: Limit Volume 3 will be released on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 by One Peace Books. The previous I Hear the Sunspot manga garnered widespread popular and critical acclaim for a moving love story between two young men, the hard-of-hearing Kohei and the eternally-optimistic Taichi.
Volume 3 begins just after Kohei announces out of nowhere, right when the relationship is blossoming, that the two should spend some time apart. It features the greatest growth between the boys yet, as they struggle to overcome disability, insecurity, and family trouble. Most importantly, it brings the romance between Kohei and Taichi to a satisfying conclusion that will leave the hardest of hearts in tears. The story is led by Yuki Fumino's cinematic drawings and sharply translated dialogue.
The manga has been lauded for its nuanced representation of disability, and this latest entry into the series features special empathy towards the troubles of children, the elderly, and broken families. Anyone who has felt different or alone will feel heard by this remarkably compassionate story, which has attracted not only manga fans but young adult readers far outside the typical reach of a manga series.
I Hear the Sunspot: Limit Volume 3 will be available anywhere fine books are sold.
