What is it about?
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.
What did I think?
Oh guys… the feels in this one… Man, I think I will cry for days. (sniff sniff). BEAUTIFUL, that’s all that should be said about this one. The story is so beautiful, the characters are beautiful and the message behind it… WOW…
This movie is one of the reasons I like anime so much, even though anime is animated, it can be so REAL. This story talks about so many subjects we don’t actually talk about, it is powerful and it is meaningful. No matter if you’re a boy or a girl, young or old, you should definitely watch this movie.
