ARE YOU AFRAID OF HER?

Shoya’s decided to do everything he can to make up for how terribly he treated Shoko, his former classmate who can’t hear. But more than the challenge of learning to communicate, it means facing a past he thought he’d left behind forever. Now a reunion with old friends will transform Shoya, and his relationship with Shoko.

Bullying remains a central theme. Another bully, Ueno--a girl who liked Shoya but also bullied Shoko--isn't ready to make the same heroic gains Shoya is. . . yet. Shoya's heavy friend gets bullied, too. Romance looms, though it is not clear why Shoko would really like Shoya. Okay, he grew up, he learned sign for her, he apologizes, he's being nice to her, but we don't really see the thought processes of why they would really like each other. . . okay, it's now a romance, with moral coming of age ...more

It is the first time I ever felt these feelings whilst reading this volume.. *broken heart*

Remember how I mentioned that the past never leaves us? Yea well for this particular volume the past has become a sharp knife and its stabbing Shoya constantly throughout this manga.

Shoya is trying his best as usual to help Shoko in any way possible to become a better friend but fix the damage he caused from their childhood. Shoya is afraid to communicate properly to Shoko and at times it becomes frustrating yet understandable why he puts up a wall and leads to major problems in miscommunication

I LOVE THE INNER DIALOGE AND INNER CONFLICT THAT ISHIDA GOES THROUGH SO MUCH. It seems so real and reflective, not as superficial as some other Bad-Guy-to-Good-Guy-transformation.

This series just keeps being good. Years from now, I'll want to remember that this is the volume that includes the visit to the Meow-Meow Club.

I love how different characters are brought into the story in a very natural way. When I read the first book, I had no idea that seemingly minor characters would come back into Shoya's story later on. It wasn't a book that felt (to me, at least) like it was setting up a bunch of little details that were destined to be brought together in some ingenious wa

The Premise

How does a bully become a bully? In A Silent Voice vol 1 we meet Shoya. He didn't start out as a bully. He was a bored kid who spent his time egging his friends on so life would feel more exciting. When Shoko, a deaf girl transfers to their class he finds her quite weird. He examines her like a bug or an a

A satisfying volume, but not as good as volume 2. Especially because of Naoko, that girl is a nuisance.
But what is up with that ending?? Shoko, you're a dumb dumb boy. I love Nishimiya's sister's character growth through this book.

Great volume!
I love the pacing, the illustrations and the complexity of the characters.
It’s touching story, I feel a lot and I think about all kinds of things while reading this story.
Can’t wait to read the next volume.

Actual rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

It's been two years since I've read this manga, and it is just as heartbreaking and painful as I remember it. Unfortunately, Naoka makes my blood boil, which is why I didn't like the rest of the content of this volume as much as the first few chapters with Miyoko.

At this point, I'm much more interested in watching the movie for this than continuing the manga series, even though this has been strong and the movie apparently cuts some of the emotional subtleties ou

I finally managed to get hold of the whole series so I've read no 1 and 2 again to recap. I enjoyed the first one alot more this time round, I think that having the context of book 2 helped me see the actions in 1 as less comedic.

Anyway, book 3. Again, the artwork is really nice and it's easy to understand what is going on by the characters facial expressions.

Sometimes with manga I have a problem seeing them as real people, their actions just seem nonsense. But, not in this case, I really can se

I'm not saying this graphic novel/manga is perfect or super amazing. It was not. But somehow I still continue reading it.
And I'm usually stop reading romance/friendship manga at this point (when the other "friends" came, had their own monologue shaddashadda). I don't know why but I absolutely despise slow paced, full of drama romance manga like Ao Haru Ride, Orange, Toradora etc. But in this manga, the pace somehow suitable and matched perfectly with the way the personalization brings out the wh

Aww, Sahara is such a cutie pie!! Also, I really don't like Ueno. Hope she'll come around eventually. I've also seen some major changes in Shouko, can't wait to read more!

This one slowed down for me a little bit. It was a lot of Shoyo trying to force other people on Shoka too and her just kind of nodding along and accepting it.

But oh my god that cliff hanger!

This remains a good series with solid art. Shoya is growing some, so thats good to see. In this volume, we start to re conect with a few more elementary school people. Miki we find out went to the same middle and high school as Shoya. We also meet back up with Miyoko, the one girl who was willing to learn sign language with Shoko and who was bullied out of school, as well as Naoka, who was another big bully to Shoko.
Shoya still sees big X over both thier faces, so it will be interesting to see i

Finally! A book about humans! No villains. It's actually radical to think of the world like this: no villains, hence no good guys (including you/me). A beautiful, simply human story. href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... is on how to make friends, meaning it is a political act to do so: more significant than voting. On how violence is human, and actually a great chance to see people's (the "rapist", and "victim") humanity. It is humans, and while doing it, still humans.

Keeping it short. Is this series trying to kill me??? That last chapter! This one actual got me teary eyed. Again every volume just gets better. I can't believe I didn't know about A Silent Voice sooner.

Eventually, it was featured in the February edition of Bessatsu Shounen Magazin, where it placed first, and later in the 12th edition of the 2013 Weekly Shounen Magazine.
