Aishiteiru to Itte Kure (愛していると言ってくれ, "Tell Me You Love Me") is a Japanese TV drama series which was aired in Japan on TBS in 1995. It was the number one Japanese drama that year, and led to a brief fad of interest in Japanese Sign Language.
Hiroko, a young actress living in Tokyo, meets Koji one day when attempting to grab an apple from a tree in the neighborhood and he plucks it out for her. The two meet again and again in the park until one time, when she is practicing a role in the park, she learns from a child that Koji can neither speak nor hear. From this point on, the two begin to grow closer together and Hiroko even learns Japanese Sign Language to understand Koji better.
