Shamelessly inspired by Koe no Katachi
There were two instances when Takumi realized that he was different to others: once when his late mother tried to explain to him that other people could hear things and he could not, and once when his elementary school bully played him his cello, expecting to be ignored by the stupid, lonely deaf boy that moved back into the district.
Takumi never grasped language. Or at least, not to the extent of others. His first year in elementary school with others resulted in bullies in every hallway. When he moves back to his birthplace after several years in another town, not everybody who he knew in elementary school is happy to see him. As far as he is concerned, he was destined to be isolated from others since he was born.
Leo struggles with regret. After injuring Takumi when they were kids, he was singled out by every one of his friends. Over the years, he has struggled to maintain his friendships because nobody wants to befriend someone who forced someone to move schools. So he submerges himself in his cello to deal with his isolation, giving him new ways to express his emotions and drown out what others say about him behind his back. Until he is given another chance.
