The manga has an interesting premise and storytelling. It makes me interested in seeing the characters grow as they navigate their relationship together. The manga is told from the perspective of the ML and a third person omniscient that tells mostly the FL's, Nana's, perspective. That's quite fresh and interesting to me as I could get a feel of both of their characters. The ML has underlying reasons (that benefit him) for marrying Nana. He's selfish and practical. But there are acts of kindness that accompany his pragmatic thoughts. Yes, he might not be doing things with the kindest intentions, but the acts he does always benefit other people. Deep down, he's a good person. But man, he sure is a businessman. He's kind of realistic - a person's gotta look out for themselves. His pragmaticness doesn't make me feel uncomfortable like he's a bad person or anything, but I sense it could cause him to misunderstand or overthink some things. He's portrayed as someone who overcame their circumstances with their ambition and will to live. The backstory adds to his personality. He's also comedic, so that brings some humour to the story. He's a lively character for sure. Ah, also interesting: he has a power that allows him to hear thoughts. But he can't hear Nana's (yet?)  Nana has suffered a lot. She can't speak because of trauma. She's timid and grateful for many small things. She's often apologetic and too kind. But I still find her character interesting to read about. I feel like she has some hidden determination in her. Even though she's timid, I could still see that she has personality instead of just being a maxed-out-abused FL that authors make horribly abused just for the plot. I'm really interested in seeing how her character develops. Also, she also has a similar power to ML - how cool is that? ML and Nana are quite cute together. They both get flustered and care about each other, though ML still has some mistrust. They are a good match for each other. They complement each other well and I expect they will learn some good aspects from each other, which would help make them each a more complete person. I'm interested in seeing their relationship and themselves develop. Most of the other characters are also done well. The people who are close to the ML add a lot of comedy and personality to the story.  The story's going well. It's kept my interest. Chapter 5 has introduced a little drama and a shady character. I'll expect some misunderstandings/mistrust/drama/angst, which is frankly not my type of story much. But I'm still really interested because of the plot, characters, superpower, and comedy. I'll gladly endure the drama to get to see the characters interact with each other and develop themselves. The art is nice. I recommend you give this a try.

I love mangas that put a unique twist on a typical love story. This one is one of the more interesting ones out there. The ML's power allows him to hear the inner thoughts of people. All his life he's been plagued by the fact that people cannot be trusted because they're two-faced. To further his business, he decides to marry a mute woman from a reputable family to increase his power. And here is the twist: he can't hear her inner voice. The FL comes from a history of abuse. She was neglected at an early age due to a trait she has no control over. As she grew older, her sense of self slowly dissipated into nothing. The immense stress from her trauma pushed her to become mute. I haven't read enough mangas depicting people with disabilities in regular situations or genres, where their disability isn't the sole focus of the plot, so this manga was quite a read. The author still shows respect for her situation and the FL as a person, without making their disability their entire personality or a crutch. The ML is a foil to the FL; written to be self-centered and apathetic. He doesn't care for people unless they offer a direct benefit to him, whether it's through his business or by increasing his connections. When he comes face to face with the FL, he works with her to help her learn how to communicate with others despite his selfish intentions. The best way to improve oneself is to put one in the shoes of another - which he is forced to do. I think that the way he acts around her is respectful to her person while allowing her to be as much of herself as she wants to be. No pressure, just vibes. Slowly, they'll eventually end up falling for each other by discovering themselves as they help the other person overcome their limitations. It's not a fast romance, but one that happens over time. How the author portrays the hesitation between each character - from every thought, every action, every attempt to reach out to understand - is well-done and it made me cheer for them even more! This isn't necessarily my favorite trope but I'm excited to see how their relationship develops. The FL has a power of her own which will probably be realized by the other characters later on.  Reviewed at Chapter 10.
