(Last Updated On: August 26, 2023)

On Tuesday, Kodansha’s K Manga service made an exciting announcement. They have introduced Suu Morishita’s manga “A Sign of Affection” (Yubisaki to Renren) as a simulpub, along with the latest chapters.

Notably, Kodansha USA Publishing had initially released the manga simultaneously on other platforms. However, earlier this year, they withdrew the series from those services.

The manga, which began its journey in July 2019 in Kodansha’s Dessert magazine, is the creation of Morishita. As of July 13, the ninth compiled volume of the manga has been published by Kodansha. In 2020, Kodansha USA Publishing secured the digital rights for the manga’s distribution.

A Sign of Affection

The first printed volume arrived in February 2021, followed by the upcoming release of the seventh volume on October 24. The storyline of “A Sign of Affection” follows Yuki, a customary college student engrossed in friends, social media, and shopping bargains.

An incidental train encounter introduces her to Itsuomi-san, a friend of a friend and fellow student, widening her world. However, language becomes a barrier as Itsuomi-kun, despite being multilingual, can’t converse in sign language.

The manga’s narrative explores their journey of learning to communicate and expressing their burgeoning emotions.

Notably, the manga earned nominations for the Best Shōjo Manga at the Annual Kodansha Manga Awards consecutively in 2021, 2022, and 2023. Beyond the pages, it also spawned a musical stage play adaptation in 2021.
