Half Blue Sky
- Find another way, even if you lose half of something
Set in 1970s Japan to the present day, a girl proves that failure in life is a blessing in disguise.
Suzume loses her left hearing while in elementary school. Despite that, she grows up happy, with support from her family and Ritsu, a boy born on the same day in the same hospital. As a girl, Suzume calls half of her world "blue sky" because that side of her can't hear the rain. With this sensibility, she jumps into a career in manga and a whirlwind marriage. When she returns home as a single mom, a new adventure awaits! Wherever she goes, Suzume brings with her joy, laughter, and half of something wonderful.
