Powerful

by -

Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice) is quite possibly the most powerful movie I've ever watched in my lifetime. It's a movie that isn't afraid to address serious issues like bullying, social anxiety, and suicide in a very real and relatable way. I've never seen anything like it before and I feel it is a must see movie for anyone, not just anime fans. 5/5 stars

Beautiful tearjerker with a universal, relatable message.

by

A former high school bully seeking redemption for his cruelty against a deaf classmate is the subject of this moving animated feature. It's rare to have animated movies deal with topics like this, and it's to director Naoko Yamada's credit that the movie succeeds so well. The character development between the two leads is compelling, richly tragic, and emotional, and will no doubt wrench tears from the iciest of viewers. A SILENT VOICE is filled with genuine heart, offering a most relatable and universal message without being preachy. Clocking over two hours, the film is unabashedly lengthy, and yet it still keeps a good pace on its story. The dubbing by NYAV Post is outstanding as well, with excellent performances from everyone involved. Real-life deaf actress Lexi Cowden, in particular, provides a particularly tangible, heartbreaking turn as Shoko. This is a modern day classic that I recommend most highly, and without hesitation.

A Touching Film about Redemption

by -

I recently saw A Silent Voice in theaters for the first time (English dubbed version) after hearing great things about it through the community. As mentioned above, it was quite the powerful experience; a story about bullying, guilt, making amends, friendship, and redemption. It certainly earned its place in my current Top 3 of anime movies I've seen. I haven't seen the subbed version, so I don't have that basis of comparison, but the dub was perfectly acceptable by modern standards and even great at times; the highlight being the casting of Ms. Lexi Cowden as the female lead, Shoko. Having an actually-deaf actress play the deaf Shoko brought a level of added depth that I don't often see in dubs, and Ms. Cowden did a fantastic job. I enjoyed the experience so much, as soon as I got home I logged onto RightStuf to pre-order the film. It is definitely worth the $22 price tag and is a worthy addition to any anime film collection.

Beautiful movie AND dub!

by

You'd have to have a heart of stone to not even be moved by this movie, and even more so to not even be impressed by the dub. In fact, I dare say it's actually better than the Japanese -- and yes, I stand by that. For one thing, actual kids are heard in the flashback scenes, and an actual deaf actress plays a deaf character. The end result, while not perfect, is still a very admirable effort all around. Yes, the Japanese version might be more authentic in some ways, but personally I think the dub gets an advantage here for authenticity.

Either way, though, you can't go wrong with A SILENT VOICE. This is a really great movie that I highly recommend.

Best animated film

by

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.

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.

“A Silent Voice” would be the top movie I would recommend for most people that like animated films.

Dont pass this one up!

by -

Im just gonna add my 5 stars to the list of others because this movie really deserves it. It deserves the hype, and it should have won in the Grammy's. I think it did a great job of condensing the story from the 7-manga series, as well as portraying Shoya's journey to forgiving himself and rebuilding the friendships he lost.

The Most Heartfelt Movie Ever

by -

Between character development and it’s messages. Every character in the movie is well written, even the minor ones. On top of this the movie tells a story of compassion, forgiveness, and love. It’s story is deep and meaningful and may quite possibly have the best message of any Anime movie.

A new favorite for my collection.

by -

Plenty has been said about this movie already. I am just here to say it's worth the purchase. It sits up there with Your Name, I Want to Eat Your Pancreas, and Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal (outlier here but a fave haha).

I bought this standard blu ray before knowing about the limited edition. I would have payed for that limited version (still might) had I seen that first despite it's price...

Buy it in any format, I cannot see how you will regret it.

A great film exploring the subject of bullying

by

This was such a beautiful story from beginning to end. I felt for the characters, even Shoya (which is rare to see characters like him portrayed in a sympathetic way, blurring the lines of villain and victim.) Like He Man vs Skeletor, we tend to polarize those around us in simple "good guy/bad guy" terms, without digging deeper. (Understanding negative behaviors is essential in preventing them.) It was moving seeing Shoya and Shoko try to rise above their respective pasts.

This film explores bullying in a VERY realistic way. (It even showed normally kind students, in order to avoid BEING bullied, felt compelled to BECOME a bully themselves.) As someone diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and OCD, I am drawn to anime that explores mental health issues. And this one nails it.

Fresh eyes on an old favorite

by -

Ah, love this movie so so much. Just made a friend watch it this year for the first time and was dwelling on it again, so decided to finally take the plunge and snag the blu-ray. The cover art is amazing.
