    I desperately want to see this movie and waiting for the blu ray release, if this review has me all teary eyed I better get a big tissue box.

    I love that part where Shoko's sister picks up the umbrella and stares at Shouya, looking from one eye to the other, seeking inside of him to see if he's genuine. Something about the nuance in every scene makes this movie so brilliant.

    I didnt sob during the ending scene. I sobbed after, realizing it was truly over. I was stuck between laughing and crying and one thought kept me from stopping: you can love yourself. This movie was the first to make me want to change my life for real. To not speak ill of myself, and try to love myself. This will always be one of my favourite movies. Helped I was watching it with a close friend who could translate nonsubbed japanese text and fill me in on subtle stuff in the movie… i think we grew closer hearing eachother cry lol.
    Time to sob and read the manga!

    I’m currently on a binge of slice of life anime films that I’ve wanted to watch for some time. Ive seen Your Lie in April, I want to eat your pancreas, A silent voice and now I’m on to garden of words and anohana. Of the ones I’ve seen, this was by far my favourite and in my opinion the best. Probably because of how realistic it is. From the very beginning, the opening 10 minutes I knew I’d be into this film in a way that I wasn’t with the others.

    I was gripped by how horrible Ishida treated Shouko and at some points I legit had to pause the film because I was so angry at how such a kind and sweet girl was being treated, all because she was different. And then the fact that despite being the one being bullied, she still apologised to ishida and even cleaned his desk, yet he was still being a cunt to her. “I’m trying my best” when they were in the classroom, legit made me cry

    That Ueno chick is a straight cunt and Kawai is the snakeish type you want to avoid in life, had to pause the film during a lot of their scenes too.

    I loved the storytelling and the way the film laid out the narrative, it felt like a genuine film, as opposed to an anime film if that makes sense, YLIA had a lot of over the top melodramatic animation and scenes whereas this felt like I was just watching a regular film in anime form

    I do wish we could’ve got to see a romance between Ishida and Shouko develop more after the I love you confession, but who knows, maybe that leaves the door open for more Light novels/another film. Great film, 10/10 on MAL and in my top 5 anime

    I’m really not a big anime guy. But this movie speaks to me. Don’t mind the pun, but this movie really messes with your heart and it really teaches you things.

    I think I've seen this video 3 or 4 times now. IT always finds its way back to my recommended videos. And every time I've watched it I've cried. This movie is beautiful beyond my ability to explain it, and I want to thank you for for this video and it's periodic reminders of that beauty and depth.

    This anime DESTROYED me. I cried so much at the end. Hours. I felt so angry at those little shits for tormenting that sweet girl Shoko. When she tried to end her life I shouted at the screen. I cried so much at this film. I suffer from depression, and I understand the self-loathing and hate well. This is probably the best film, live action or animated, that I have ever seen.

    Man that eye aversion from Shoya reminds me of myslef. For totally different reasons but ultimately for the same reason. That really hit home when I realized I do the same thing.

    It's highly convenient for me that if I need to clear out my tear ducts, all I need to do is play a YouTube video about Koe no Katachi.

    I really wish this had a sequel or at least a 30 minute ending to see where they ended up afterwards.

    Edit: actually no I just wish Shoya and Shoko kissed, I think that is what is making me sad this movie ended so soon.

    The manga's or I guess the original intention is actually "You can't change, but it's the amount of time you spend changing that matters" By the way, fucking amazing analysis! Love you for this man! This made me appreciate me even more than before. I wish you added more from the manga too.

    Koe no Katachi was the third anime that have ever made me cried, the first one which connected to me so much and I think to some of us can relate to Shoya and Shoko. Both of them hate themselves for their incapability of communicating with other people. Sometimes we fail to talk to our friends, we fail to understand them, fail to find the right words to say when they are in pain and we couldn't help to blame ourselves for that. This movie is beautiful and it stroke my heart deeply. And thank you, Under The Scope, for making this video, it made me realize how much of a masterpiece this movie truly is.

    I could watch Koe no Katachi a thousand times over and over again… that's truly a masterpiece.

    The end of the movie, where he lets the sound back in and let's himself look at everyone, is a very real and very amazing and intelligent way of showing everything. It's hard to explain what I mean, but when I finally escaped depression and saw things in a positive light again, everything truly did change. It felt like I could actually see the colors surrounding me, I could see the brightness of the sun, I could feel the warmth and the breeze, and I could truly hear people and understand them again. It truly is a life changing experience but it's amazing and I loved how they showed that, because I and many others can probably relate to and understand the meaning behind it.

    Hey I'm not sure if I'm the only one or if I'm just like thinking too much on it. But doesnt the scene where Shoya is looking down while holding an umbrella and listening to Yuzuru, look kind of like he is talking to his past self. Since he thought it was OK to bully her before, but after he started getting bullied he kind of understood what he did wrong. Yuzuru lashing out on him and the scene only showing his feet, looks kind of like his past self is screaming at him (Shouya) for what he did. Lol. I'm not sure if I'm just overthinking it lol

    One of the few movies I've seen that I can say is honestly perfect. I was crying multiple times throughout, and flat out sobbing by the end. I'd never even heard of this movie before, but was really intrigued by the trailer on netflix, and ended up being completely blown away by the animation, symbolism, story, soundtrack, everything. I'll never regret watching this masterpiece.

    One part of anime I love is names have meaning. Shoya Ishida translates to "It is good". Which I thought was a fun way of saying he was good at heart all along.

    I watched A Shape of Voice for the first time without the sound or with hardly any sound on purpose to keep from waking up my family because it was night time, but now I want to watch the movie again with sound.

    As someone who has attempted suicide, in a very similar way as Shoko, though I was forcefully stopped twice before I could jump and then after a conversation with a lot of tears I had to agree to go inside though I still wanted to die, I thought the movie was done in a very realistic way–something good can happen the very same day as an attempt. It can seem like the strangest, most random thing in the world. I had not planned on suicide that day or even before that day, but so many things added up to the point I was so exhausted and overwhelmed by mental images and thoughts that I could not stop it and decided enough was enough. It's not good, but it's very understandable from someone who has been overwhelmed to that point before. I wanted to end the pain and didn't know how else how to. But I'm alive now and doing much better.

    To anyone who struggles with suicidal thoughts/feelings or self-hate: Find a counselor you can trust and connect with, someone you feel/know is helping you. Get help, and don't let yourself make up excuses for not getting help. Your existence matters, and your mental/emotional health matters far more than experiencing some discomfort, getting out of your comfort zone by seeking help. Think of it as an adventure. You're on a journey to health, and you're the hero. When I finally found a counselor I could trust, I learned so much about how to manage my mental health and my feelings, catching myself before anxiety explodes, allowing myself pockets of time to de-stress or exercise to get out intense feelings instead of bottling up my feelings till I explode, learning to show myself self-compassion and be able to check in with close friends regularly as a safety net, learning how to forgive myself and lessen the scariness of intrusive, violent images and thoughts over time.

    It's a process, but it is doable and possible. I am in a much better place emotionally and mentally than I was last year. I want to live. I am able to live, even when I momentarily get overwhelmed by something. I'm able to remember that the moment will pass. Feelings change. Situations change. Possible solutions exist. Take care of your physical health as much as possible too, because often it's connected to your emotional/mental health. For instance, Candida/parasites and vitamin deficiencies. They're real and can cause chaos in emotional/mental health.

    Take care of yourself. You can have a happy life despite everything that led up to where you are now. Just like in the movie, things can change for the better. You are loved. And I know this might be weird, but I believe that even if no one else does, God loves you and cherishes you a lot and I pray you experience his wonderful love.

    I hope this helps someone.
