Ratings & Reviews
Best Animated Film
by Christopher -
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. I would gladly purchase the Limited Edition for any additional features for this anime.
