* SweetDreamsFuel: For all of the struggles that Sachiko and her family go through, you can't help but just feel as happy as they do when things go ''right'' for them. Hikaru and Kanon are just adorable, too.

The story begins with Sachiko Azuma having her first child, Hikaru. He's not like the other babies, though: He stays in his stroller even when he's too old for it, he is only willing to eat the same thing every day, and he refuses to be held by his mother. Sachiko feels she is to blame...but she learns that Hikaru has autism -- a communication disorder. What ensues is the story of how Sachiko, her family, and others around them both hinder and contribute to Hikaru's life, and her ultimate goal that he will grow up to be "a cheerful working adult".

* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Masato's older sister and her daughter are introduced early in the first tankobon, but she's always referred to by [[JapaneseHonorifics oneesan]] or "Sis." It's not until towards the (premature) end of the series that we catch her name.

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: A subtle but [[UnfortunateImplications still unfortunate]] version occurs with Sachiko's two friends from her mommy-baby group. One, Mrs. Tanaka, looks like an anime drawing of Jennifer Aniston, and the other, Mrs. Katakura, looks much more like a Japanese woman actually would look like. Guess which one winds up being more accepting and supportive of Hikaru...

The titular character was given the name meaning "Light of the East", like the sunrise during his birth. His little sister Kanon is, loosely translated, "the sound of eastern flowers", given after Sachiko heard a canon on radio while giving birth.
