Anime Film: A Silent Voice

I think this is the best animated film ever, I watched it about 4+ times in the past week and i'm not sick of it yet. I highly recommend getting the manga, a lot is explained whats going on in the film.





Synopsis
: A deaf elementary school girl named Shoko Nishimiya transfers to a new school and meets a boy named Shoya Ishida. Shoya leads the school in bullying Shoko over her disability until she transfers to another school. Immediately, the class bully Shoya for having bullied Shoko. Shoya loses contact with Shoko, and for years he suffers the consequences of his guilt. Upon entering high school, Shoya finally decides he must find Shoko, determined to make amends for what he did in elementary school and to become Shoko's friend. Along the way, he meets new and old faces, and struggles with many complicated relationships and feelings.

Have heard nothing but gushing praise for this one. Grabbed the Blu-Ray from Wal-Mart, the in-store price was $16, YMMV.

Re: Anime Film: A Silent Voice

I thought I would write a real review.

This is the best animated film I have seen, right after I finished the film I rewatched it. I have an extensive list of animated films I bought from Shout Factory, GKids, Studio Ghibli, Funimation and others, some of the films I really did enjoy watching but this film feels like it belongs in its own category. The characters in the film are very realistic who learn the consequences of their selfish actions when they were kids. The dubbed voice for Shoko, is voiced by a deaf voice actress who nailed the part perfectly. I never watched the Japanese dub yet so I can’t compare.

Not many animated films lasts over 2 hours but it feels so short for this film. I watched this film with my 6 year old niece who really liked it. For anyone that likes the film I highly recommend reading the manga after, so much stuff what is going on in the film would be missed. I watched the movie about 4 times so far and every time I notice something new in the background.

I also wanted to say this is my first real review I made for a film and I don't ever read reviews. I always thought a movie ether looks good or it doesn’t, and everyone has different tastes in what they like but “A Silent Voice” would be the top movie I would recommend for most people that like animated films.

I liked it well enough, but never felt the desire to re-watch it. I probably likely won't.

Spice and Wolf. It's a tragedy we'll never get a third season of the beloved show.
