Sneak Peek Released for Anime Adaption of the Manga ‘A Sign of Affection’

The manga series created by Suu Morishita will be getting an anime adaption, which is due to premiere in January 2024. A sneak peek of A Sign of Affection was recently shared online.

Here is the first trailer:

Here is a summary of A Sign of Affection (Yubisaki to Renren):

Yuki Itose is a hearing-impaired university student whose world has been shrouded with silence since birth. She has lived in the same place her whole life, and rarely interacts with others save for her best friend, Rin Fujishiro. During her commute one day, she meets the silver-haired and multilingual Itsuomi Nagi, a mutual friend of Rin. Unlike most, Itsuomi is unwavering when he learns of Yuki’s impairment; this, along with his experiences abroad, fascinates and touches her. After they part, her fondness of him starts to grow. A new world begins to open for both Yuki and Itsuomi as they learn about each other’s different lives.

Yubisaki to Renren is a lighthearted, romantic comedy that illustrates the silent life of a university student and how one man sharing his world starts to change her own.

Here are the character profile pictures of the two main leads:

According to Morishita Suu’s Twitter page, the A Sign of Affection anime has, so far, been in the works for three years. This is the first time her work has been adapted into anime form. In 2021, A Sign of Affection inspired a musical stage play adaption.

An almost 8 minute compilation clip of the musical stage play:

A Sign of Affection currently has 6 manga volumes published, with a 7th volume coming out October 24th, with publishing rights in Kodansha Dessert in Japan and distribution rights with Kodansha USA.
