With these hands, I want to tell you that I love you…
The manga by Suu Morishita has sold over 3,400,000 copies to date (including digital copies), and has placed in many award rankings while receiving strong reactions all over social media.
Yuki, a deaf college student, is struggling one day when an upperclassman from her school, Itsuomi, helps her out. Itsuomi isn’t put off at all by her lack of hearing and interacts with her naturally. As he gradually opens up a new world to her, Yuki begins to develop feelings for Itsuomi…
Thus begins the pure love story of Yuki, a deaf college girl, and Itsuomi, her upperclassman who travels the world with her.
Yūta Murano (Kakushigoto, Brave Beats) is in charge of storyboards, and is also directing the anime at Ajia-do. Yoko Yonaiyama (Uma Yuru, Ya Boy Kongming!) is overseeing and writing the series scripts. Kasumi Sakai (Animation Director for Love Live! Sunshine!!) is designing the characters, and Yukari Hashimoto (March comes in like a lion, Komi Can’t Communicate, Am I Actually the Strongest?) is composing the music.
Japanese band Novelbright are performing the anime’s opening theme song “Yuki no Oto” (The Sound of Snow), and musical group ChoQMay are performing the ending theme song “snowspring.”
Morishita launched the manga in Kodansha‘s Dessert magazine in July 2019. Kodansha USA Publishing is releasing the manga digitally in English. Kodansha‘s K MANGA service is also publishing the manga digitally.
