A Sign of Affection is based on the manga by Suu Morishita, which started serialization in Kodansha’s Dessert in 2019 and has nine tankoubon volumes as of July 2023. It was one of the finalists in the 47th Kodansha Manga Awards in the Shojo category.

INKR describes the plot as:

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?
