Anime masterpiece A Silent Voice shows the woes of adolescence [REVIEW]

Making friends is never easy, and for little Shoko, who has a hearing impairment, it’s especially difficult. And school bully Shoya doesn’t make things any easier for her in A Silent Voice.

But the anime film takes a unique approach with Shoya, and shows us things from the “bad guys” point of view. By the end of the film you’ll want to give him a big hug.

We all want acceptance, and sometimes we make mistakes while trying to get it. The thing that separates the “good guys” from the “bad guys” is whether or not we try to fix those mistakes, and this is something Shoya actively tries to do.


Ghost in the Shell is visual perfection; if only the story were less focused on Scarlett Johansson's self-doubt [Review]


No matter your gender or personality, you’ll be able to relate to one of the colourful characters. The film, occasionally changing points-of-view, unveils the struggles of people in almost any situation and sheds light on topics that are often too sensitive or personal to talk about, such as disabilities, mental health and depression, and poverty. People of all ages will be able to enjoy the tale, but those of us trapped in the black hole that is adolescence will learn a lot by watching two kids grow through the same stages of life..

Ah, the bittersweet sound of your heart breaking and mending itself all at the same time. Familiarise yourself with that feeling, because it happens a lot in this movie.
