  • A healthy dose of drama that we never knew we needed.

    May 20th, 2017

    A Silent Voice or Shape of Voice is a beautiful drama film about a guy who struggles to redeem his past that tackles heavy themes such as bullying.. Apparently, there are a lot of characters in this 2-hour long film. And quite a number of them I believe didn't develop to the maximum as the film concludes but it was suffice enough to convey the mes...

  • This movie isn't a romance. It is a drama about depression.

    June 1st, 2017

    Despite revolving around a girl who has impaired hearing, the film has as protagonist Shoya Ishida. He is a bully during his childhood, but when he becomes the victim of bullying himself he grows into a depressive teenager who loathes himself. He starts to understand Nishimiya's solitary world. Both Ishida and Nishimiya end up becoming teenagers w...

  • Both an emotional roller coaster of a film and a thought-provoking contemplative experience.

    April 24th, 2017

    I somehow managed to tear up several times over the course of this movie - something very uncharacteristic of myself. Moreover, despite my eyes moistening this unusual amount of times, I enjoyed this movie immensely. Does that mean this movie is without fault, though? Not at all, hence my lack of a full ten-out-of-ten score.. Before I begin with m...

  • The painful, the redemption.

    June 20th, 2017

    When Kyoto Animation announced "A Silent Voice's" adaptation as an anime movie, I was a bit surprised. Indeed manga itself isn't too long volume, only 7 volumes, but is it enough to be a movie only? Apparently, Kyoto Animation does not half-hearted to work on adaptation. They adapted the manga into a film that lasted 130 minutes.. A Silence Voice ...

  • Follow up to the success of the hit anime "Your name"

    March 26th, 2017

    Following the success of "Your name" we now have the next successful anime that is currently sweeping the charts of Japanese and Asian box offices. "A silent voice" captures various mature and serious topics, packed into a wonderfully animated 2 hour feature. It deals with topics such as: social anxiety, fitting in, bullying, suicide, all such tha...

  • My bar was set too high with "Omohide poro poro" - Only Yesterday

    October 6th, 2017

    I'll start by admitting that I'm not very familiarized with the anime movie genre in general, even less so with titles that are mainly dramas. That said I did have a previous experience with an amazing dramatic/romantic anime movie, "Omohide poro poro" - Only Yesterday, which until this date is one of the most remarkable movies I ever saw. With th...

  • A Must Watch Movie!

    June 16th, 2017

    Another, fantastic, Brilliant work of art by Kyoto Animation alongside Trigger studio, MadHouse and of course Studio Ghibli and many more theses are the studios that lead the anime world, In my opinion. Koe no katachi or A silent voice is honestly one of my favorite anime alongside Spirited Away from the animation alone is brilliant, when I first ...

  • Koe no Katachi short review

  • Too Many Things Unexplainable

    October 28th, 2017

    You may have read so many reviews about this movie, I'll just say that I agree about the positive comments about the voice actors and of course the animation. Pure art. But, these are what I think that ruined the beautiful concept of the movie:. 1. So many things left void. For example Ueno's character resolution, the white haired guy's existence,...

  • Probably The Best Anime Film Of 2017

    October 16th, 2017

    When it comes to anime, I don't find myself watching nearly enough in order to form a list of favourites, but even if I had watched everything under the moon, I still believe A Silent Voice would make the list. This is a spectacular film from start to finish. Keep in mind, this can be a very tough film to sit through for multiple reasons, and that...
