Staff Reviews

Shonen Note: Boy Soprano is a sweet and innocent coming-of-age story about a boy with a beautiful soprano singing voice who experiences the world through sound. Starting at a new school, he is caught between singing and the school choir or striking out on his own to be in an opera. As puberty approaches, his time as a soprano is limited, adding pressure to his decisions. Beautifully illustrated, this endearing manga makes for a charming, refreshingly pure read.

— Caroline


A poignant coming-of-age series that's moving and musical from the creator of Our Dreams at Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare! Yutaka is a boy treasured by his choir for his beautiful, soprano voice. But what will he do when the inevitable arrives, and his voice starts to deepen? Perfect for fans of Kageki Shojo!!, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken, Blue Period, and Boys Run the Riot.

One of School Library Journal's top 10 manga of the year!

Yutaka Aoi is sweet, sensitive, and loves singing…so much so that he can’t help but be brought to tears whenever he listens to beautiful music. He also has a talent few boys have: he can sing soprano. So when Yutaka overhears his middle school’s choir group perform, he can’t resist joining in. Inspired by the angelic sound of Yutaka’s voice, the choir eagerly accepts him into their ranks. But when Yutaka’s voice begins to change as he enters puberty, the journey ahead will be one of self-discovery and reflection for not only himself, but also for those around him.
