Takahashi is Hearing it tells of a popular high school girl named Ena Takahashi, who is usually seen wearing headphones. But instead of listening to music, she actually uses them to eavesdrop on the conversations of her male classmates, the class rep Nara and the plain boy Mikage. She has to keep this creepy hobby a secret to preserve her image. Hokuo began serializing the manga in Square Enix’s Gangan Joker in 2013 and it has finished with eight collected volumes.
