The A Sign of Affection romance anime has a new trailer, previewing its opening song “Yuki no Oto” by Novelbright and more of the cast dynamics.

The series is set to premiere in Japan on January 6. 

A Sign of Affection is an adaptation of the manga by Suu Morishita, which started serialization in Kodansha’s Dessert in 2019 and has nine tankoubon volumes as of July 2023. 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?

The manga was a finalist in the 47th Kodansha Manga Awards‘s Shojo category.
