Welcome to Anime of the week number #52. Do you enjoy watching a quick flick from time to time? Then I got the anime for you! The anime is A Silent Voice
Sep. 17th, 2016 (Fall 2016)
As a wild youth, elementary school student Shouya Ishida sought to beat boredom in the cruelest ways. When the deaf Shouko Nishimiya transfers into his class, Shouya and the rest of his class thoughtlessly bully her for fun. However, when her mother notifies the school, he is singled out and blamed for everything done to her. With Shouko transferring out of the school, Shouya is left at the mercy of his classmates. He is heartlessly ostracized all throughout elementary and middle school, while teachers turn a blind eye.
Now in his third year of high school, Shouya is still plagued by his wrongdoings as a young boy. Sincerely regretting his past actions, he sets out on a journey of redemption: to meet Shouko once more and make amends.
Koe no Katachi tells the heartwarming tale of Shouya’s reunion with Shouko and his honest attempts to redeem himself, all while being continually haunted by the shadows of his past.
I’ll try and make this review quick and simple, but enjoyable to read without spoiling too much of the anime. A Silent Voice really takes you aback after watching it for the first time. Some people could even relate while watching if it be in the shoes of Shouya Ishida or Shouko Nishimiya. The anime does a very good job at making you feel sympathy for either character.
Even though this is only a two hour film you won’t be dissatisfied once you’ve finished. The story is straight to the point and doesn’t drag away from the purpose of the film. There is definitely a void that is left once finishing the film. For me I would say this anime really touched me in a way that no other anime has done before.
You absolutely can’t miss out on watching this movie. Take two hours out of your day to spare some time on watching something that could really change your aspect on life. It truly does hit you in the feels and maybe for some of you anime lovers out there it might just bring tears to your eyes. Thanks for taking the time to check out my review on A Silent Voice, I hope everyone enjoyed it and see you next time!
