“Yuki is a Deaf college student who is attracted to and then falls for an upperclassman at her school, Itsuomi, who treats her naturally, unfazed by her inability to hear. After she resolves to face her love head-on, Itsuomi asks her out and the two become a couple. He wastes no time introducing her to his best friend and Yuki feels all the more keenly just how much he cares about her.” (Goodreads)
I really liked this series from the beginning but I feel like everything has become repetitive at this point.
My favorite thing about this series is that Yuki is deaf and it adds to the way that she communicates with others as well as the struggles she faces when doing everyday tasks, like going to the market for something. I would absolutely say that she is my favorite character.
The romance is still the same and is very slow. I understand that this is Yuki’s first relationship so I get it. It’s just that we are now into volume 5 and it feels like we are just getting the same. Their moments are cute but not enough for me to feel satiated.
I do love a good love triangle but this one feels like more unrequited love but also the fact that Yuki doesn’t understand her friend’s feelings because he has never spoken them out loud.
Overall, this was fine but I do hope that the next volume picks up.
