From Fantagraphics:

As winter draws to a close, German boarding school student Thomas Werner dies one morning. He leaves behind a single letter addressed to his fellow student Juli that reads "Here is my love. Here is the sound of my heart."

With his faith shaken to the core by the words, the scholarly Juli sinks to the depths of despair. His cynical roommate Oscar finds himself watching over Juli's fragile mental state while keeping his own feelings for Juli under wraps. Then new student Eric enters the school - and he has an uncanny resemblance to the deceased Thomas...

Enter the world of a boy's boarding school in Germany where all will be revealed about the suffering and redemption that comes with love. Even today, this early work of Hagio Moto is still regarded as a brilliant masterpiece.
