The manga authored by Suu Morishita has sold a staggering 3,400,000 copies (inclusive of the digital copies) to date and has been the recipient of numerous awards. The manga has also established a solid presence on social media platforms.

Yuki, a college student who is unable to hear, struggling with life one day, is helped by Itsuomi, a senior from her school. He is not deterred by her inability to hear and engages with her naturally. With her world being broadened by him, Yuki starts to harbor feelings for Itsuomi.

Thus, a love story set in a college environment between Yuki, a deaf girl, and Itsuomi, a college senior who is always by her side, begins to unfold.

The anime is storyboarded and directed by Yūta Murano from studio Ajia-do, known for works like Kakushigoto and Brave Beats. Other key roles are played by Yoko Yonaiyama, who is in charge of script supervision and writing, and character designer Kasumi Sakai. Meanwhile, Yukari Hashimoto is handling the music composition.

Japanese music band Novelbright is performing the opening theme song titled “Yuki no Oto” (The Sound of Snow), and the ending theme song “snowspring” is performed by the musical group ChoQMay.

The manga was first published in Kodansha‘s Dessert magazine in July 2019. Kodansha USA Publishing is digitally distributing the manga in English. Kodansha‘s digital service K MANGA is also offering the digital edition of the manga.
