The poignant tale of redemption of a childhood bully who grew up to be a loner as a teenager, tugged at the heartstrings of everybody who viewed the anime.

RELATED: 10 Silent voice To Watch If You Like A Silent Voice Perhaps one of the biggest strengths of the movie was how realistic and accurate most of its characters were. In fact, their realism was hauntingly surreal, which is why despite the movie being a massive hit, there are certain characters that fans have still been unable to forgive.

Mika was undoubtedly one of the most realistic characters in the movie, which is also perhaps why she was one of the most intently disliked ones as well. She was a narcissist who loved attention and balked at the thought of being hated by people. She never hesitated to play the victim card, even when she knew she was in the wrong. She was also the first person to rat out Ishida to her teacher, despite being a bully herself. Kazuki was a “fair-weather” friend.

The moment people turned on Ishida, he too turned his back on his best friend. He never stopped Ishida from bullying, but also conveniently condemned his actions when everybody else did the same.

Even when the two met years later, he treated Ishida as a stranger, never even once bothering to acknowledge the history the two shared together. As a true blue tsundere, Naoka was often rude to her classmates in general, and Ishida in specific. Her words and actions often hurt people, including Shouko. However, despite being aware of the result of her actions, Naoka did not bother to change her ways.

Like all her other classmates, she also laughed at Shouko and never stopped Ishida or his friends from bullying her. Yaeko was someone who believed in “tough love.” After becoming hardened by her husband leaving her when she was pregnant, she expected Shouko to become strong the same way – by facing and overcoming hardships.

RELATED: 10 Anime Villains That Would Make Great Protagonists This is partly why Shouko was bullied for so long – because her mother wanted her to let that experience strengthen her resolve, not break her. Some of her anger was misplaced as well, like how she hated Ishida for bullying her silent voice, but never once silent voice herself for allowing the bullying to happen.

Undoubtedly, Miyoko was one of the kindest characters from the movie. She befriended Shouko and even made efforts to learn sign language so that she could communicate with her. Unfortunately, this made her a target of Shouko’s bullies as silent voice.

Despite that, she and Shouko grew up to be close friends and she was the first person Ishida contacted so that he could apologize to Shouko. Miyako was a single mother who is shown to be extremely loving and kind toward her family. She always welcomed everybody with open arms (as could often be seen in her treatment toward Yuzuru). Despite loving Shouya unconditionally, she made it clear that his actions had disappointed her.

She also offered to pay for Shouko’s hearing aids that had been lost or broken due to her son’s actions. Shouko’s younger sister was shown silent voice be a rebel who had an estranged relationship with their mother. She was fiercely protective of her sister and was shown to have an intense hatred toward Ishida.

However, upon learning that Ishida had changed his ways, she does not hesitate to accept this new version of him. In fact, she could often be seen encouraging him to communicate more with her sister. Tomohiro was a little too sincere, seeing how one act of kindness from Ishida was all it took to make him his (Tomohiro’s) best friend.

His behavior and attitude made a few people uncomfortable around him, including Ishida. However, he never let any of that affect him. RELATED: The 10 Best Kyoto Animation Anime Movies, Ranked For the most part, he’s shown to be a genuine friend of Ishiada’s, offering him genuine advice whenever needed. After being ostracized by his entire class (including his friends) for bullying Shouko, Ishida went from being a fun and outgoing young boy to a complete recluse. As a teenager, he had but one goal in mind – to find Shouko, apologize to her for his actions, and befriend her.

His genuine and sincere behavior soon won over the hearts of everybody, including Shouko’s cold-hearted mother. Throughout the movie, Shouko was shown to be a sweet young girl who wanted nothing else but to make friends, be happy and live her life like a normal girl. Being bullied seemed to have an impact on her mental well-being, something which is dealt with later on in the movie.

Despite everything, she did not allow her past to let her become a hardened person. If anything, her willingness to forgive Ishida and become his friend went on to show what a truly strong girl she was.

Based on a manga, it is about a boy named Shoya becoming friends with silent voice deaf girl he used to bully, Shoko. The film tackled many important topics, such as bullying and mental illness. RELATED: Logan: 10 Best Quotes In The Film Ironically enough, despite its title, the movie had a lot of great quotes from its amazing characters that will remain with viewers for years to come. Before Ito, Yuzuru and Shoko's grandmother, passed away, she had one last conversation with her younger granddaughter.

They talked about how they were worried about both Shoko and each other while letting the other know that there was no need to worry.

Ito also told Yuzuru that she was a good kid, but Yuzuru wasn't sure since she stopped going to school and didn't get along with her mother. Regardless, Ito thought her granddaughters were great. That night, she fell asleep for the last time. Shoya said these words to Shoko towards the end of the movie.

He had gone to the 45th Touchi High School Festival with her, planning to be more friendly with everyone around him and apologize to those he hurt. However, when they arrived, he noticed how many of his schoolmates were talking about him and panicked.

Luckily, Shoko understood and helped Shoya get to his classroom, hoping to make him feel more comfortable. Similar to Shoko, Miyoko was bullied by the other main characters back in elementary school but became friends with them a few years later.

When they all went to the amusement park, she and Shoya sat with each other on a rollercoaster and silent voice for a bit. During their conversation, Miyoko remembered how she used to be afraid of the ride, but became braver than she was in elementary school. She had changed, just like her classmates. Silent voice since she was a child, Shoko wanted to kill herself.

One night, Yuzuru took her photographs off of the walls, and when her mother asked what she was doing, this was her response. Before meeting Shoya, or Silent voice, as Tomohiro called him, he didn't have any silent voice. He was rejected by everyone he tried to get close to until Shoya stopped someone from stealing his bike and the two started to hang out.

When Shoya was in the hospital, both Tomohiro and Shoko visited him but weren't able to see him. Instead, they talked to each other about Shoya, and Tomohiro told Shoko how he feels about him and that he was sure he'd recover. 5 "I Knew It. I Knew Something Was Going On With You!

I Can't Believe It, It's So Morbid. Promise Me You Won't Go Through With It Or I'm Torching This! The 1.7 Million Yen You Earned Will Go To Waste!" When he was a child, Shoya broke a lot of Shoko's hearing aids, causing his mother, Miyako, to pay 1.7 million yen to Shoko's mother.

Years later, Shoya earned enough money to pay his mother back. RELATED: Akame Silent voice Kill: 10 Best Quotes From The Anime He planned to kill himself shortly after, but Miyako confronted him. When he admitted what he was going to do, she said these words to him, letting him know that she cared more about him than the money he owed her.

When Shoya began wondering whether he and Shoko could truly be friends, he started hanging out with Tomohiro. After the two of them went to silent voice movies and got some food, Shoya told Tomohiro what was on his mind. Feeling like he was overthinking it, Tomohiro made up a special handshake with Shoya and said these words. After Miki found out that Shoko had tried to kill herself, she was upset. Wanting to bring all of Shoya's friends back together before he woke up, Shoko met with Miki, as well as Satoshi and Tomohiro, for the first time since then.

When Miki saw her, silent voice caring how much attention she drew to them, she loudly said these words and hugged her friend.

2 "Shoya! You're Okay, I'm Glad. Cause If You Didn't Wake Up, I Didn't Know What I Would Do! You're Everything To Me! I Would've Been All Alone! Listen, The Stuff On The Bridge, Don't Worry About It, Okay? Friends Say Stuff They Don't Mean To Each Other All The Time! It Doesn't Matter! I'm Begging You, Don't Ever Leave Us Again! Silent voice Me! I Can't Lose You!" Ever since they formally met, Tomohiro considered Shoya silent voice be his best friend.

However, before Shoya nearly died while saving Shoko's life, he got into a fight with Tomohiro. Once they met up again after Shoya woke up towards the end of the movie, Tomohiro said these words to him.

He forgave Shoya and made sure he understood how much their friendship meant to him. Shortly after, Shoya made amends with his other friends as well. 1 "I Want To Tell You That I'm Really Sorry. I Never Apologized For All The Stuff I Did To You When We Were Kids, Or Any Of The Other Stuff Afterwards Either, So I'm Sorry.

More Than Anything, I Wanted To Have A Conversation With You. I Wasn't Trying To Hurt You But I Must Have Because I Made You Feel So Bad About Yourself That You Decided To Go And Do The Unthinkable." After he woke up in the hospital, Shoya ran to the bridge that his friends often went to, hoping to find Shoko there. Luckily, she was indeed there, as she had woken up in the middle of the night after having a bad dream.

This was the first time that they had seen each other since he saved her life, and he finally told her everything that he wanted to say.

Factory Purchase rights Stream instantly Details Format Prime Video (streaming online video) Devices Available to watch on supported devices Everyone has stories about bullies and victims, but there have been very few features, namely animated ones, which actually dare to show the raw emotional honesty of such situations, particularly from the West.

Luckily fans of traditional animation have a great contender for this subject: A SILENT VOICE, directed by Naoko Yamada. Based on a similarly titled Japanese graphic novel series, this movie doesn't hold back on showing the true tragedies silent voice the story it tells, making its uplifting resolution all the more meaningful.

A SILENT VOICE tells the tale of both the growth and redemption of a former bully, Shoya Ishida. We first meet him as a High School teenager as he solemnly contemplates suicide on account of guilt for his past behavior, and for the first half hour we get to see what drove him to the point.

silent voice

In Elementary School, Shoya mercilessly ostracized a new classmate, Shoko Nishimiya, a deaf girl who occasionally talked but mostly communicated in sign language. The cruelest thing he did was to rip out her hearing aids and throw them out the window.

Eventually, Shoko transferred to another school, and then he too was bullied by his former classmates, arguably as punishment for his actions. At this point the film transitions back to the present, but rather than throwing away his life, Shoya decides to make amends.

He takes sign language classes, and eventually encounters Shoko again for the first time in five years. Gradually, the two become friends. Simultaneously, Shoya also makes friends with another boy, Tomohiro Nagatsuka. Due to his guilt, however, he hesitates to look at people in the eye, and eventually comes to realize that Shoko, too, has feelings of self-resentment and must help her overcome her troubles.

In lesser hands, this story could come across as a preachy, melodramatic soap opera, but silent voice Yamada and her staff at Kyoto Animation manage to avoid this pitfall and succeed in making silent voice a relatable tearjerker with a lot of heart. The development between the two leads is compelling, richly tragic, and emotional, and will no doubt wrench tears from the iciest of viewers.

There are a plethora of other silent voice who make up the story who are rounded in varying degrees, although not to the same extent as we get to see from the leads. Occasionally the plot does rush some minor developments (on account of trying to compress a six-book manga into a lengthy film), but while careful concentration is required to fully discern the occasional subplots, nobody in this story comes across as truly unsympathetic.

The only exception might be Naoka Ueno, a rather nasty and bitchy character who arguably comes across as worse silent voice Shoya, never showing any major growth from her misdeeds and instead continuing to bully poor Shoko.

One scene where she openly confesses how much she detests the deaf girl is particularly mean-spirited. Aesthetically, A SILENT VOICE might not be as lavishly detailed or colorful as, say, a Studio Ghibli production, but frankly, having said that, the actual animation is no slouch.

The backgrounds are lovingly rendered and the character designs, while distinctively "Anime" in appearance, all have a distinct look and feel to them that makes each easy to identify. There are occasional uses of computer imagery (such as a brief but nonetheless thrilling scene where we go on a roller coaster ride at a carnival), but mostly Yamada chooses to execute the film in a rather stylish way. This is done through the use of different camera cutaways and lavish shots, such as fish swimming through a brook and occasional fireworks, giving A SILENT VOICE a bit of an "art film" tilt.

To illustrate Shoya's isolation we see X's marked on the people he avoids making contact with, which may seem as a bit too "on the nose" at times, but having said that, it's a clever approach that works wonders. Kensuke Ushio's primarily piano-driven (and sparse) score is also silent voice nice touch. It's also to the film's credit that the film backs off on dialogue in certain occasions when silent voice needs to, rather than dumbing everything down to its audience.

Further complimenting A SILENT VOICE's atmosphere is its English dubbing. NYAV Post has done a lot of great dubs over the years in no small part to the talented duo of Michael Sinterniklaas and Stephanie Sheh. This yet another winner for them, and certainly up there with their best, with excellent performances from everyone involved.

The real triumph of the dub is the casting of an actual deaf actress to portray Shoko, Lexi Crowden. Every second of her turn comes across as very believable and convincing. The actress admits that doing this role was like a therapeutic session for her since she faced similar circumstances in real life. The end result is all the more tangible and authentic because of it.

The same is true with the casting of the children for the Elementary School scenes, a practice that I continue to applaud NYAV Post for still going through with. A SILENT VOICE clocks approximately over two hours, which may cause the film to come across as a bit lengthy at times, but that it manages to keep a good pace on its story and maintain interest even when it occasionally slows down is a testament to its success as a film.

There's a reason why Makoto Shinkai, director of Japan's current highest-grossing feature YOUR NAME (released the same year, incidentally), expressed enthusiasm about A SILENT VOICE; it deserves every ounce of praise.

This is a modern day winner filled with genuine heart, and offers a most relatable and universal message without being preachy. 186 people found this helpful The silent voice itself is wonderful and this seems to be the only legal way to watch it in America. It could have been a five star product easily but it has two flaws. The first flaw is the lack of subtitles exclusively for writing or texts for easy understanding for the dub.

The second is the English subtitles are very poorly executed. One example of a mistranslation is the sign language teacher saying “it’ll be easier for Shoko if she learns sign language” instead of the correct line “it’ll be easier for Shoko if you learn sign language”. All writing does have subtitles but flashes on and off too fast to read. One example is when Ishida writes a mean message on the chalk board.

You would think they would translate when the “camera” pulls away and shows the whole board but we don’t get to read it then silent voice we see the translation chopped up while he erases it for less than a second. Both of these examples happen in the first thirteen minutes of the film. In the end I love this movie and it’s original manga it’s my favorite for both mediums and I want to see it be the best it can be. silent voice people found this helpful Was a bit darker than I expected.

The ending is kind of steamless. There's only one redeeming character in this story, and one trying to be so. The teachers are heartless, the children aren't just cruel, they are evil.

It's supposed to be a story of redemption for the protagonist, and in that aspect it is, but he is up against people not wanting redemption and are comfortable in their cruelty. The subject of their cruelty is kind, but just lets everyone walk all over her, and so do the teachers. It's a more heart-wrenching tale than heart-warming. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it, despite its frustrating flaws.

28 people found this helpful This was one of my top movies of 2017. I saw it in theaters Sub, but now to have it finally release in the US in Dub and not region locked :) If you loved "Your Name" I think you'll love this movie as well.

It's a great touching story about the serious issues like bullying, social anxiety, and suicide in a very real and relatable way. I feel it is a must see movie for anyone, not just anime fans. 5/5 stars 62 people found this helpful The Japanese subs in this movie are absolutely incredible. some silent voice it gets lost in translation unless you have a rudimentary knowledge of the language. the English version does a fantastic job of translating it in a way that makes sense to non-Japanese speakers.

the English voice acting is also top-notch. The problem comes with the audio levels. without getting into spoilers, a very important scene on a bridge is very very difficult to hear. You have to turn your television way up silent voice normal, but when you do that, you get hit with extremely loud music.

They also cut some things that I consider very important out of the manga.

silent voice

I understand how they took a couple larger sub-plots out, and condensed some bits, but a couple things were cut that would have added 10 minutes or less to the run time. the exclusion of these parts changes parts silent voice the story and the characters. Again, i'm NOT getting into spoilers. you'll only really get this part if you read the manga, and then it's not a spoiler because you know what happens.

they took out the letter scene between shoya and yuzuru. without that letter, yuzuru may not learn to understand certain things about her family. a couple members of the gang lose segments of their story that would only really take a few minutes to really really flush out.

as a result, kawai is a slightly different character, and mashibasa becomes a much less defined character. it only took a few manga panels to turn him into a character with a personality, the movie might as well not even have included him. nagatsuka is also somewhat toned down. granted it wouldn't make sense to include the "movie" subplot, but there were a couple scenes that could have shown him be more vulnerable. Although Pedro.

Pedro's still awesome. The animation quality is so vivid and smooth. and the silent voice effects are better than most slice of life movies/anime.

9 people found this helpful So I've seen this movie available in English on here, but its only a region B blu ray so it wont play in the US. I can assure this blu ray works in the US players, the only issue is that it is not dubbed. So for those Sub not Dub's people this is a good buy. I know its a bit pricey but the movie is worth it. 26 people found this helpful Amazon Music Stream millions of songs Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon 6pm Score deals on fashion brands AbeBooks Books, art & collectibles ACX Audiobook Publishing Made Easy Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web Sell on Amazon Start a Selling Account Amazon Business Everything For Your Business AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally Home Services Experienced Pros Happiness Guarantee Amazon Ignite Sell your original Digital Educational Resources Amazon Web Services Scalable Cloud Computing Services Audible Listen to Books & Original Audio Performances Book Depository Books With Free Delivery Worldwide Box Office Mojo Find Movie Box Office Data ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics DPReview Digital Photography Fabric Sewing, Quilting & Knitting Goodreads Book reviews & recommendations IMDb Movies, TV & Celebrities IMDbPro Get Info Entertainment Professionals Need Kindle Direct Publishing Indie Digital & Print Publishing Made Easy Prime Video Direct Video Distribution Made Easy Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands Silent voice Deals and Shenanigans Zappos Shoes & Clothing Ring Smart Home Security Systems eero WiFi Stream 4K Video in Every Room Blink Smart Security for Every Home Neighbors App Real-Time Crime & Safety Alerts Amazon Subscription Boxes Top subscription boxes – right to your door PillPack Pharmacy Simplified Web icon An illustration of a computer application window Wayback Machine Texts icon An illustration of an open book.

When word of the bullying reaches the principal, Shoya is singled out as the culprit by his teacher resulting in the class's bullying becoming directed toward him. Shoya blames Shoko, and the two get into a physical altercation. Shoko is subsequently transferred to another school and Shoya later finds a notebook Shoko left behind and keeps it.

Shoya and Shoko reunite with Miyoko Sahara, a classmate from elementary school who was friendly to Shoko.

Shoko later gives Shoya a gift and confesses her feelings for him, but because she tries to speak her affections rather than signing them out, Shoya mishears her. Shoya invites Shoko to an amusement park with Tomohiro, Miyoko, Miki Kawai (another classmate from elementary school) and Satoshi Mashiba (Miki's friend).

There, they are joined by another classmate from elementary school, Naoka Ueno (who had also bullied Shoko alongside Shoya then), who drags Shoko into a ferris wheel. Naoka voices her feelings of hatred for Shoko, blaming her for creating a rift between her and Shoya, with whom she is infatuated.

Yuzuru, who had been secretly recording the encounter, shows the video of this to Shoya.

Later, she attempts to apologize to the group, but Shoya blows everyone off after Naoka remains dismissive.

Production [ edit ] The anime adaptation of the manga was announced silent voice the manga's final chapter that released on November 19, 2014, [10] later specifying that the adaptation will be an anime theatrical film on December 17, 2014.

[11] In the Weekly Shōnen Magazine's 46th issue of 2015 that released on October 14, 2015, Kyoto Animation and Naoko Yamada were announced to be the animation studio and director of the film adaptation, respectively. [12] The film's distributor, Warner Bros. Pictures, listed the adaptation releasing in Q4 2016.

[13] On April 8, 2016, the film adaptation's official website opened, announcing that Reiko Yoshida would silent voice the script for the film, Futoshi Nishiya would designed the characters and the film was scheduled for release in Japanese theaters on September 17, 2016.

[14] Kensuke Ushio and Pony Canyon composed and produced the music, respectively. [7] The film's theme song, titled Koi wo Shita no wa (恋をしたのは), was performed by Aiko, while My Generation by The Who was used during the opening credit. [15] [16] For the Silent voice dub, deaf actress Lexi Cowden was cast as Shoko. [17] Analysis [ edit ] Themes [ edit ] The cinematic adaptation, based on the manga of the same name by Yoshitoki Ōima, covers a large part silent voice the original plot.

Some segments have been shortened for runtime reasons. Individual scenes were weighted differently so that the manga can be considered supplementary literature, for example, of the characters' backgrounds. [18] The more obvious themes covered by silent voice film are school bullying and the integration of disabled people in society.

The film then tackles with handling guilt silent voice a community (although this aspect is exposed more in-depth in the manga), [19] redemption for mistakes of the past, [20] forgiveness and self-respect. [21] Director Naoko Yamada explains that bullying should not be considered as the central theme of the film but rather a means to explore Shōya's personality as he gets older.

The course of bullying is presented precisely and intuitively, in rapid sequences. It is depicted as a collective failure, starting from school managers and overwhelmed teachers to the class community itself. [22] The film, lastly, deals with the theme of suicide. Yamada said she was "determined to confront the topic with integrity and treat it gracefully", stressing that it "is by any means not the right decision".

[23] Stylistic means [ edit ] The narration of Shōya's story, starting from his past to present, describes how he slips to the lower end of the hierarchy that he established at the beginning. From his perspective, it is shown how bullying can affect an adolescent's psyche and prove his resilience.

Shōya faces many challenges: the rejection of Shōko's mother's or the avoidance of former classmates, who don't want to confront their past behaviour when he and Shōko work silent voice their past. [24] Shōya's alienation and inability to stare at his fellow people are symbolised by crosses (✖️) on their faces.

[25] This behaviour is often emphasised by camera framing, which avoids the faces of people around him as Shōya's shies away from eye contact, often focusing on body language instead. [26] In some face-to-face conversations, Shōya's interlocutor's face is cut out of the frame; the empty space left behind him achieves an unsettling effect for the viewer. [21] Symbolism [ edit ] The film relies on subtle and sensuous motifs. [27] Yamada uses flower language to reflect feelings and personality of the characters.

Shōko is juxtaposed with white daisies, symbolising purity, and blue or red cyclamen, which can silent voice resignation, leave-taking, but also deep affection. [28] Cherry blossoms often enclose Shoko and Shoya: they appear when the two first reconcile and when Shoya's befriends Tomohiro Nagatsuka.

[29] The koi, a symbol of luck and perseverance in Japan, represent Shōya, Shōko, and the rest of the group overcoming their shortcomings and rebuilding their lives.

[30] Fireworks are a metaphor of the transience of each single moment of life: both scenes with the fireworks anticipate the suicide attempts of the two protagonists, reminding them of their hopelessness towards life. [21] The film occasionally shows short dream sequences. The architecture seen in the background describes the protagonists' inner life, recalling Michelangelo Antonioni's work.

In other scenes, the lack of harmony of the characters is depicted by oversized pictures in the room. [18] The characters silent voice stylized, recalling the caricatural style of My Neighbors the Yamadas. [22] Music [ edit ] Main article: A Shape of Light My Generation by The Who is used at the beginning of the film to express teenage rebellion and angst. The song rides the excitement and amusement of the kids gathering before school, ending with Shōko's entrance into the classroom.

Yamada said that, for this scene, she wanted to silent voice an evergreen that everyone could identify. [21] Composer Kensuke Ushio, recognizing the central role of sound in the film, gave importance to musical and non-musical elements, including silence. The song "lvs", played when Shōko is excluded from the class community, was recorded by putting a microphone inside a piano, obtaining a muffled sound in which the piano mechanics' noises are emphasized.

This technique recreates for the viewer an effect that resembles Shōko's perception. [21] Release [ edit ] The film premiered in 120 theaters across Japan on September 17, 2016.

This is a spectacular film from start to finish. Keep in mind, this can be a very tough film to sit through for multiple reasons, and that is exactly what I'm going to dive into throughout this review, because Silent voice feel that a few precautions should be taken when going in. Here is why A Silent Voice deserves to be seen by everyone, even though it won't please everyone. At its core, this film is about a new student that comes into a school, who just so happens to be hearing impaired.

Ishida, the school bully, taunts her to the point of tears, for audiences as well. Without ruining the impact of certain scenes, I'll just say that his actions were quite Risqué. I found myself absolutely hating his character, which was very frustrating, due to the fact that the film asks you to sympathize with him on multiple occasions. After growing up and leaving his harsh ways in the past, these two characters reconnect, forming a highly unlikely bond.

A Silent Voice asks for your acceptance almost too often, but trust me, if you're in the forgiving mood, this film turns out to be extremely powerful.

So that's the warning I must give you, that if you're not ready to be forgiving of a terrible actions, I'd wait until you're in the right mood to watch this movie. Throughout Ishida's transformation from a bully to a kind-hearted human being, it wasn't just the dialogue that impacted me, but the visuals surrounding him.

Every time he would pass by other people that knew him, they had X's on their face. When this aspect comes into play a little later in the movie, I'd be lying if I said it didn't move me. From beginning to hate the film for displaying a very unlikable character, this story really does a great job at winning you over, especially through it's silent, visual storytelling in the background, foreground, and even anytime that it makes it blatantly obvious. When a movie makes you wait for it to be really good, it can be a pretty frustrating experience, but I see something different when reflecting on this film.

It's all about redemption and how forgiveness is everything when you truly want to become a better person that what you were in the past. Evil is all throughout everyone, but silent voice not supposed to act on it. This is one of the message that I feel the movie tries silent voice convey and I believe it's a wonderful lesson to everyone.

The themes presented throughout this film are taken very seriously, so I don't think it will appeal to a younger audience, but I think older teenagers will be the perfect demographic here, for the lesson it's giving.

In the end, A Silent Voice is a film that had me hating throughout the first act, realizing I was wrong throughout the second act, and on the verge of tears throughout the third act, due to how well this movie does a complete 180.

With a powerful story, a final sequences that will have many in tears, and an overall film that is worthy of awards, I can't recommend this enough. That being said, I can't get myself to give this movie a perfect score, due to the fact that I think it took a little too long to win me over.

I found myself disliking the movie throughout the majority of it, until my eventual realization, which is my one warning, so I feel I won't be alone on that. A Silent Voice is one of the best movies I've seen so far this year.

'A Silent Voice' is the work of Naoko Yamada, a little perplexing as I've not encountered a lot of female anime directors. I was also a little surprised to find out it was also based on a manga by Yoshitoki Oima. The film itself is an endearing tale of living one's life as a young person being affected by regrets and opening up to the world in a more brighter manner than before, but it's also about atonement and reconciling with one's consequences of their actions.

The character's are relatable as they are touching, carrying the film through it's compelling plot especially with the main character himself and the deaf girl who he's trying to understand.

In the end it's not surprising the characters learn something more about themselves as well as their relationships with others in order to lead more happier lives. The animation is unique and top class to say the very least not the most outstanding especially for it's environments though it does a superb at blurring the line between imagination and reality.

Even if the success of 'Your Name' is to suggest one piece of anime was huge, this deserves just as much attention as it does acclaim, I have no regrets watching this silent voice and I encourage people of all demographics to seek out and see for themselves.• Animation • Drama A young man is ostracized by silent voice classmates after he bullies a deaf girl to the point where she moves away.

Years later, he sets off on a path for redemption. Though the official Roman-character title used silent voice merchandise in Japan, and on the movie's posters, trailers, video boxes, video menus and so on in English-speaking countries is "A Silent Voice: The Movie" (often shortened to just "A Silent Voice"), the Roman-character title which appears on-screen in the full movie itself is instead "The Shape of Voice", which is an awkward mistranslation into English of "Koe no katachi".

Jesus Christ, this movie is silent voice sad, yet also strangely heartwarming. I was in tears throughout most of the movie.

I found myself rooting for Shoko and eventually Shoya as well. I think this movie should be a requirement for children in school, as it shows the consequences of bullying and that there is redemption even for a bully. Obviously, the writing in this is great, as well as the animation. My only qualm with this movie was some confusion over the flashbacks.

The way some scenes were cut together made it hard to decipher exactly what was happening or what had happened. This is a Japanese film so maybe this confusion has something to do with it being translated for English audiences? Either way, this confusion didn't hinder the movie too much and it was still very enjoyable to watch.

I would recommend this movie a hundred times over!
