YesAsia Editorial Description

K-On! director Yamada Naoko and studio Kyoto Animation adapt Oima Yoshitoki's acclaimed manga A Silent Voice into a beautifully poignant animated feature about two lonely youths and their struggle for acceptance, redemption and friendship. In elementary school, Shoya cruelly bullies hearing-impaired classmate Shoko to the point that she has to transfer away. After his actions come to light, the friends and classmates who had condoned his actions turn against him, and he becomes the outcasted one. Losing hope in life, Shoya begins to see all people with an "X" over their faces. A few years later, on the day he planned to kill himself, high schooler Shoya re-encounters Shoko. Carrying the guilt of his past, he tries to make amends with the shy girl and forge an unlikely friendship.

A painful journey of redemption and self-discovery
In November 2016, the case of a 13-year-old Japanese boy being bullied by classmates was revealed. An evacuee from the 2011 nuclear disaster in Fukushima, the young victim was called "germ" at school and beaten by classmates who extorted money from him. However, this case is just the tip of the iceberg. Bullying happens everywhere and it has become a common theme in manga. Dealing with the issues of bullying and disability, Oima Yoshitoki allows audience to listen to the inner voices of both the bullies and their victims in her award-winning manga A Silent Voice, which has been adapted into an anime film by K-On! director Yamada Naoko and studio Kyoto Animation.

A Silent Voice is a thought-provoking tale about a bully who finds meaning in life through his journey of redemption. Elementary schooler Ishida Shoya finds some fun in his boring life by bullying hearing-impaired classmate Nishimiya Shoko. When Shoko transfers to another school, his brutish behavior comes to light and all his friends and classmates become hostile to him. Getting the taste of being bullied, Shoya comes to realize Shoko's hopelessness and desperation. After years of isolation at school, Shoya decides to apologize to Shoko and make amends for what he did in the past.

Shoko is a strong character who always faces hardships with a positive attitude. Well aware of what others think of her, the sensitive girl tries her best to befriend her classmates. However, no one understands the sorrow and loneliness behind her big smile. Shoko doesn't have many lines but she perfectly embodies the power of non-verbal communication with her meaningful facial expressions and body language. Though she seldom talks about her thoughts, her inner world is more or less reflected in Shoya's growth journey, which provides a refreshing perspective on the much talked-about social problem from a bully-turned-victim's point of view.

Rather than using the Japanese kanji character for "sound" (声), the author wisely adopts the traditional Chinese character (聲) – which includes radicals meaning "ear" (耳) and "hand" (又) – in the self-explanatory Japanese title "The Shape of Sound" (聲の形) to highlight the importance of listening and non-verbal language such as gestures in effective communication. Sound is the main medium of communication. However, suffering from hearing impairment, Shoko experiences sound in a different way: sound not only can be heard, but also can be seen and felt. Apart from blindly believing in what others say, people should learn to feel from the bottom of heart.

Feeling rejected by society, the two desperate lonely souls eventually realize the real meaning of life when they find love and care from each other. Though the seven-volume manga is drastically cut into a two-hour anime film, with its painfully realistic portrayal of teenage life, the adaptation sticks closely to the original's core messages about self-discovery and redemption, and raises awareness of youth mental health.
