Yuki is a typical college student, whose world revolves around her friends, social media, and the latest sales. But when a chance encounter on a train leads to her meeting friend-of-a-friend and fellow student Itsuomi-san, her world starts to widen. But even though Itsuomi-kun can speak three languages, sign language isn’t one of them. Can the two learn to communicate the budding feelings between them?
Your average shoujo manga besides the fact that it's actually cute and not cringe & she's deaf.
The characters, the plot, the story, everything fits so well together and this specific manga series is not one you see on a regular day basis. Similar to The Silent Voice, the story follows a deaf girl and a male lead falling in love and the story development is EVERYTHING. Although a bunch of chapters are not out yet, I recommend this series if you are looking for something gentle and cute, yet different.
An adorable romance between a deaf girl who's as cute as an ermine and a suave guy who enjoys traveling and learning new languages. The guy--named Itsuomi--is always calm, cool, and collected about everything and handles potential drama and awkwardness with maturity and grace. The girl--named Yuki--often feels like fe's just getting swept along by Itsuomi's pace and goes with the flow because fe's in love with fem. There are also several other characters. Some friends. Some people who have unreciprocated crushes on the main characters. Many of these other characters also have their own romances or proto-romances going on. I appreciate how this series shows a range of how people express their interest in others: shyness, abrasiveness, straightforwardness. I also like seeing a glimpse of what deaf culture is like and the ways that deaf people adapt to things. It's neat how they actually attempt to show some of the hand movements of the sign language and also have some of the dialogue bubbles be grayed out to indicate that's what Yuki is lip-reading. Yuki's blushing may be a bit heavy-handed, but it's still cute so I'll forgive it. The art is good, the characters look nice, and it's just generally pleasant to look at. This is definitely a feel-good, dawww-inspiring slice of life manga, with little to no real complications to the relationships. Worth reading if you're into shoujo romance stuff and if you just want something light that'll make you smile. [Reviewed at chapter 20]
