This is book number 1 in the The Moon on a Rainy Night series.

A high school girl's chance encounter with an enigmatic female classmate whose musical aspirations were complicated when an accident almost completely took her hearing leads to the slow blossoming of love. Perfect for fans of yuri series like Whisper Me a Love Song and sweet, sophisticated romances like A Sign of Affection.

One rainy night, Saki is rushing to a piano lesson when she crashes into a beautiful, long-haired girl, dropping her sheet music in the process. Saki stutters an apology, but the girl simply hands back her sheet music and leaves without a word. Saki begins her first day of high school the following morning, only to find the stranger from the night before sitting at the desk next to hers. She learns that the girl's name is Kanon and that she is not quite completely deaf, but very hard of hearing. Though Kanon needs to be close to people to read their lips, she tends to push people away with her icy demeanor. Through one kind gesture, Saki slowly begins breaking down the walls around Kanon, even as she feels something new blossoming within her.
Kuzuhiro has written and illustrated several yuri manga, including Love Death, Ani no yome to kurashiteimasu, and Yuri hime wildrose. Kuzushiro's latest series, acclaimed yuri manga The Moon on a Rainy Night, is being published in English by Kodansha.

"A sweet, slow burn romance that beautifully represents its subject matter... Just like how we can never see the moon on a rainy night, not all disabilities are visible... I’m happy The Moon on a Rainy Night exists." -School Library Journal

"One of my favorite series... At the top of my list for possible best of the year. The Moon on a Rainy Night is a Yuri series that can and should be read by everyone." -Erica Friedman, Okazu

"There's no shortage of manga about people with impaired hearing, but The Moon on a Rainy Night stands out.. Probably my favorite school-set yuri since Whisper Me a Love Song. Subtle in the right ways and beautifully illustrated, this is worth picking up." -Anime News Network
