Don't start reading this volume unless you made sure that you are reading it alone, where there is no one at the same room. (Make sure to have a tissue box nearby as well)

This Volume is full of events. A peek at Nishimiya Family's past, what their reaction was when they discovered Shouko's deafness, how they ended up raised by a single mother, their life with granny the kindest heart in the universe.

The chapters talking about granny hit me with a force I can't describe! I wasn't able to

Me after reading this volume:

There were so many things going on in this volume. Sometimes it didn't move smoothly, but I still enjoy it.
If you remember correctly in my previous review for this magnificent series, I went on a lengthy rant about why I hate Naoka and pretty much this is the volume where I believe if I was a girl and was getting abused by Naoka I would knock common sense into her and teach her not to mess with me. I disliked her and this volume secured that hatred that I wished she had disappeared from the series all together.

The manga begins right where the story ended in the 3rd volume which is Shoko told Shoya t

Honestly this story just gets more and more better. It's kind of slow-paced but I like the direction it's heading in :)

I don't know how or when but this series has grown on me so quickly over the last three volumes and it's slowly creeping up on Death Note and Tokyo Ghoul as a new favourite manga series!!

This is a review of volumes 4-5 which I read together back to back. See the plot section for my thoughts on the individual volumes.

The Premise

We start meeting some of the other bullies in A Silent Voice vol 4. One of these is Nao, Shoya's contemporary from middle school. He didn't realize that she liked him back then. She has her own regrets from that time, that unfortunately have nothing to do with bullying Shoko and everything to do with bull

4.5/5 stars

The middle was a little bit mehh, but the ending definitely made up for it.

That ending, you guys! I'm crying.
I love me a good shojo, thank you for all the feels. Also, I love how we got a backstory about Nishimiya and Yuzu's mother, and .... I'm heartbroken!

I cannot wait to see where this story goes.



hear me out;

the first half of this volume i personally really disliked cause it was mostly about a character i HATE and find totally irredeemable so i hated read it - it was like a 2/5stars

the second half was WONDERFUL and i LOVED it and it was SO EMO AND SAD and would have been a solid 4.5/5stars

so i'm putting it at the middle and saying 3.25

the thing i love about this series is that it discusses very important topics and deals with friendships and just overall building a relationship with someone. i love the sister relationship between yuzuru and shoko, they’re just so cute. the only problem i have is when it becomes a little confusing, like some characters are brought in and they’re just there for show or sometimes the dialogue is confusing, but overall it’s very enjoyable and i’m obsessed with the story!!

Everybody is so damaged! Just goes to show you never really know what someone has been through so we can't judge.

The fourth volume is an improvement over the third, and this continues to be a very good teen series about friendships, disabilities, and the loneliness and angst that comes about when you don't really know how to properly communicate your feelings, which continue to change dramatically, of course. More secondary characters develop and complicate the scene in this one. Family issues come into play, too. This is one of the better teen manga series I am reading, for sure.

The Ferris Wheel Volume. Nothing about this story is going to be straightforward or easy. As I thought, we're starting to get more background into Shoko's past and family—her grandmother, who has only been mentioned up to this point, and why her mother acts the way she does. Learning all of that through the major events of this book is heart-rending.

If I liked this volume a little less than the previous ones, then I think it's because the story is getting bigger and moving away from the origins.

The best volume in the series so far!

It was such a rollercoaster of emotions, of complexities of human relationships.
I love the development between Shoko and Shoya, realistic portrayal of friendships and the familial relationships.
Shoko is learning that he’s worthy of having friends, he can feel happiness. He sees his friend suffering and he reaches out because he believes he can help, he wants to help, he’s worthy of supporting his friends.

One day I’ll write a proper review to this manga.

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=" 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.

This is dealing with alot if real life issues. Naoka and Shoko just dont get aling and it does not look like they ever will.
Shoko's grandmother passes away as well, and we see a new side of her mother. I feel more sympathy for her now, especially after seeing Shokos father ask for a divorce just because she gave birth to a deaf child. I'd like to smack him a time or dozen.

Among other things, this manga is a brutal depiction of anti-deaf prejudice.
I want to know more about Shoko!! I wish Shoya would just be straight forward and ask her things, but I know it's hard for him. I'm really enjoying these though and I can't wait to finish. :)

Even though her one-shot Koe no Katachi won critical acclaim, it took a longsome law suit to get a magazine to publish it because of its socio-critical theme. 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.
