I love stories with Sign Language. I think it is a beautiful form of  communication. I tried to find books to learn it, but there are so many  (American, British, Spanish, Mexican) so I am not sure which one to  get. Anyway, I strongly recommend this dorama to people who watched/read  "Koe no Katachi" and loved it. The big difference is that this story is  not in school, but the adult life of a deaf girl. How she starts to be  part of the society (by working), how she meets her future husband, how  other people who meet her starts to learn Sign Language. How hard for  her is to become a mother, to be married, etc.

The story is  simple, yet beautiful. I shed many tears while watching it, and it is  not because it is a sad story. No, it is simply because there are  certain scenes that where too emotional. Like when her  future-mother-in-law comes to Mieko's house to ask her to please not  marry her son. Like the speech Mieko's daughter gives at school, both  out loud and with signs. And all the times someone talks to her (thru  signs) for the first time: Hirofumi, his mother, the doctor, etc. It was  so poignant every time someone tried their best to talk to her.

Kanno Miho is the sweetest girl and best fit for this role. She cries many times  throughout the 5 episodes, but they all were understandable. Since she  is deaf, she has little confidence in herself, and for every mistake or  hardship that brings her deafness to the people she loves, she blames  herself. Thank Godness she marries the most patient and sweetest guy on  Earth.

Besides her, I loved, LOVED the mothers: her mother and  her mother-in-law. Strong women who loved Mieko, and some time later,  their granddaughter.

My favorite episodes were 1, 2 and 3. I have  watched Episode 1 twice (I finished this a couple of days ago, and  rewatched Ep. 1 yesterday). There are only 5 episodes, 1 hour and 30  minutes long. First episode is from 1997, 2nd from 1998, 3rd from 1999,  4th from 2000 and the last one from 2001. Like most people, I prefer to  watch recent dorama, but it is for the quality of the video only. In  regards to story, oldies are better: they are simpler, they are sweeter.  Romance is much better without cellphones and other technologies. For  example, in this dorama, there are no cellphones, so Mieko and Hirofumi  send each other faxes to talk at night. Isn't that cute?

The song "I just called to say I love you" fit the dorama perfectly.

Beautiful story, totally recommended!
