    Oh, Shoya. What is it with redeeming assholes that appeal to me, I don't know. But awww, the cuteness. No matter how repetitive I thought it was, how unrealistic some parts appear, how unbelievably forgiving Shoko is, I'm in love with the message of this series.

    The main message that surrounds this series and in particular this volume is miscommunication . It works brilliantly for this manga series because Shoko is deaf and there are moments where Shoya shows his vulnerable side and she did not understand what he was saying and when asked to reiterate what he said Shoya either avoids the topic or changes them. The scars of the past are still visible and for Shoya his guilt is a burden that constrain him.In this volume we finally get Shoya communicating The main message that surrounds this series and in particular this volume is miscommunication . It works brilliantly for this manga series because Shoko is deaf and there are moments where Shoya shows his vulnerable side and she did not understand what he was saying and when asked to reiterate what he said Shoya either avoids the topic or changes them. The scars of the past are still visible and for Shoya his guilt is a burden that constrain him.In this volume we finally get Shoya communicating to Shoko and she accepts his apology and wants to be friends with him. Shoya is relieved and is shocked that she wants to be friends with him. Their relationship regardless of the pain that he caused to Shoko it unique and not considered your typical friendship. I believe Shoko has always been in love with Shoya whereas Shoya is oblivious of his emotions until provoked and finally makes the connection. I cannot put my finger on it but there is a major shift in tone between Shoya and Shoko.Shoya wants to become a better person for Shoko and wishes to fix all the rights from his mistakes. When Shoko mother sees Shoya again she makes it a point to tell them that he can never fixed the pain and damage he caused Shoko and it is absolutely true. With that encounter and statement it starts to haunt Shoya and that is the major revelation which is he suffers low self-esteem from his guilt and when something bad happens to him he accepts the consequences and believes he deserves it which is not true. Yes, he was a bully when he was younger but by acknowledging and trying to make a change for the better it shows that he wants to grow as a person and no one deserves to suffer because of one awful mistake. I am loving this manga series and I highly recommend everyone to read it!! It surprises me how each volume teaches the reader lessons on the consequences of being a bully and how the past can easily creep up on us. The more that Shoya connects to Shoko the past seems to unveil itself and while up to now Shoko has been good about it in many ways it is ripping Shoya apart and causing him to question everything about himself and his relationship to Shoko. I am definitely curious where this series is heading because just when I think the plot is heading in this particular path Yoshitoki Ooima twists it and show new layers in both plot and character development.

    This second installment was fantastic. The first one made me sick to my stomach. As a person being mocked and picked at all the time for being fat, for having panic attacks, etc. I couldn't understand the main character, who is a bully. It was pure evil and meanness. Although it did feel like the guy only wanted to get forgiven at first, it soon became a lot more than this. And what's truly amazing, what truly gave me goosebumps, was the kindness of the girl through it all. I identify with her a This second installment was fantastic.

    The second volume about a deaf girl, Shoya, who had been bullied for her deafness in elementary school. Somewhat predictably, the bully, Shoku, five years later wants to apologize. And learns some sign language. Other complicating dimensions are mother and sister interactions. This is a strong and relatively recent manga series, worth checking out.

    Ooh, I think I've found a new favorite manga series! Reading this has been so heartrending and gripping. Shoya's decision to reverse his suicide and get to know Shoko better to repent for his past sins is incredibly interesting. He's a very self-aware protagonist who realizes how he judges other people, and even with one questionable line that felt like fat-shaming, I'm really enjoying his redemption.Shoko is a very forgiving sweetheart.

Some may find it unrealistic, but I aspire to be like that. Maybe I will remember those painful things from the past, but if I can just let go of them if a person really has turned a new leaf? Sure. (view spoiler)[It was interesting to see that she may feel guilty for the bullying, almost as if she thinks she brought it on herself (hide spoiler)]Two of my favorite things so far came out of this volume: the analysis of Shoko and her relationship with her little sister (who everyone at first thought was a boy and Shoko's boyfriend because misunderstandings are FUN!) and the scene where Shoya's mom threatens to burn the yen he was going to repay her before killing himself. The latter is both funny and very, very dark. It's twisted humor.

    Shouko è il motivo per cui la vita di Ishida è cambiata. Shouko è anche il motivo per cui Ishida ha deciso di continuare a essere vivo, indipendentemente da tutte quelle X sui volti delle persone che lo circondano. Dopo il male che sa di averle fatto, l'unico suo desiderio è saperla felice e al sicuro, anche con un ragazzo che non è lui (Ishida, tonto! Quello non è il fidanzato di Nishimiya!).Shou-chan è cambiato, perché Shouko l'ha perdonato. Adesso deve solo perdonare se stesso.

    Shoya da bulletto è diventato una vittima. Ora è completamente solo, senza speranza ne progetti futuri, l’unico gesto da fare prima della fine è quello di chiedere scusa a Shoko, per tutto il male che le ha fatto. L’incontro tra i due, tra imbarazzo e sorpresa generale, non sarà però l’ultimo passo, ma il primo. Scosso da un terremoto interiore, Shoya si ritroverà a pensare alla sua vita in modo completamente diverso, finalmente ha uno scopo: far sorridere Shoko il più possibile.Con l’entrata in Shoya da bulletto è diventato una vittima.

L’autrice tratta temi molto profondi in maniera diversa dal solito, in questo volume fa riflettere il lettore sul vero significato dell’amicizia. Ovviamente, come il precedente, questo capitolo mi ha molto colpito!Menomale che il 3° mi guarda già dal comodino! ;)

After this meeting, though, he decides to keep living and to try and make up for his past mistakes.There are still thing that bother me, like Nishimiya's sweet smile at everything (smiling is fine in some of these cases, but they should probably look forced or something).It was a rough start for me, but I think I've found a really good series.

She was an interesting character. Shoya also makes a friend! Who’s a bit weird but it’s nice that he’s getting on the right track.A really great scene is when Shoya’s mother confronts him about him wanting to commit suicide. It’s a really sad scene and she ends up burning the money that he owed her. It’s really great.Ano Please let the next few volumes go on sale!!!

    Once again, read this in one sitting. This series is so easy to fly through. I have to say I enjoyed the second volume quite a bit more than the first one, which definitely felt more like a build-up to the following ones and now the story seems officially started. I love the content and intention of this series and I'm excited to see where things go. Jumping into the next volume right away.

I guess it's time to catch up with my manga reading list eh?Koe no Katachi or is also known as A Silent Voice wasn't really in my list, but I've been seeing a lot of post about it in my Facebook feeds and there's a movie just shown. They said it's going to be a story that we could all of relate so I realized that *This review is for the series as a whole with 4.5 out of 5 stars*It's been quite a long time since I indulge myself into reading manga even though I never stopped watching anime, haha. I guess it's time to catch up with my manga reading list eh?Koe no Katachi or is also known as A Silent Voice wasn't really in my list, but I've been seeing a lot of post about it in my Facebook feeds and there's a movie just shown. They said it's going to be a story that we could all of relate so I realized that I need to try and see what's the fuss is all about. Besides, it's only 66 chapters.When I decided to read this story, I expected that this is going to be good but I didn't expected that I will like it right away. The first chapter was some kind of sypnosis taken from Ishida's (Shouya) POV. It's about what happened in their elementary years where he bullied a transferred student who has impaired hearing. When I decided to read this manga, I already know about the bullying so I thought I'm calm, but reading how he bullied Nishimiya, I was really really really mad.Btw, this review is going to be really long if I'll review each chapters one by one so instead, I'm going to write this review as a whole.This story started a flashback of Ishida's elementary years when their teacher introduces a new transferred student Nishimiya Shōko, which became a target of bullying because of her disability. It was ofcourse started by Ishida and reading about what he did to her really makes me mad. Back then, Ishida really hates her. He thinks she's a nuisance and he blames her for everything that is happening to him and for ruining the whole class. His bullying to her escalated until the time comes that he became the target of bullying too. That intensified his anger towards her that they've been engaged into a physical fight. The next day, they just found out that she transferred. That's also the start where he was bullied big time and left alone with no friends to speak to and absolutely no plans for the future.All were explained properly on how the bully was now become the one being bullied. Well, karma is a b*tch they said, and I think he just got his share much sooner. And I would be lying if I said he didn't deserve it, because he really did. I know, I know, no one deserves to be bullied and even though I think he deserves it, I still feel sorry for him especially that even his teacher didn't believed him when he said that he was bullied and that he even told him that he kind of deserves it. Like what the heck?! That teacher doesn't deserve to be a teacher at all! Isn't he the adult here?!I really want this review to be spoiler free, but it can't be helped. So I'm going to speak straight ahead and tell you what I really think aboutthis story ;)Ishida is now a senior in high school and he practically planned everything and save some money by selling all his belongings to maybe not feel guilty about what he's going to do. He's not angry to Nishimiya like he did before but he is now guilty of what he did to her. After saying sorry to Nishimiya in person, he's planning to jump off the bridge and commit suicide. Yep. This story is kind of dark, well, what do you expect? Bullying sometimes leads to suicide, but instead of the one being bullied, it's the bully who's committing it. But after meeting Nishimiya again and talked to her, he kind of changed his mind. I really thought that she will kick his butt after what he did, but she just smiled. Wow, this girl really is so nice and so innocent even after all that happened to her.Their first meeting after 5 years didn't just stopped there until they finally became friends, isn't that just nice? I'm still suppose to hate Ishida because of what he did to Nishimiya before but after what he endured and he finally decided to live his life repenting and making sure she'll be happy again, I guess that should be enough eh?Ishida then helped Nishimiya to reunite with Sahara, their classmate in elementary and every kids that was supposed to be close to her. All was doing great actually and btw, we've got to meet Nishimiya's younger sister Yuzuru too. She was bullied too before because of her sister's condition so I really thought she'll going to resent her for that, but instead she's protective of her that she even looks like a guy now because of her short hair. After the incident at school, she did her best to make her sister happy. But I guess by now she understands that she became more happier now that Ishida is here. I know it's bound to happen but I still can't contain it when Nishimiya tried to tell Ishida that she likes him. Aww, young love indeed.Nishimiya was then reunited with Ueno and Kawai but it wasn't that pleasant like it did with Sahara. These kids really have a lot of issues and is acting like they didn't do anything wrong to Nishimiya. Ofcourse it's Ishida that should be blame the most but those two including his former "supposed" friends are to blame too. They did some nasty things too anyway. It happened too fast that I was surprised when Nishimiya tried to commit suicide 'til Ishida came to rescue her, but he then fell and was comatose. I know Ueno was a b*tch but she became nastier after the accident. My! I really wanted to get her out of the manga and strangle her. So is Kawai, she's acting nice and all but deep inside she's really not that nice.I think all of them has their own issues including both Ishida and Nishimiya's mothers but I'm glad that in the end, they both settled it. Well, to be correct, they all actually settled it. I'm just happy that finally all of them is in the right track especially Nishimiya.I really like this story. I've been into romance lately and it's really kind of hard to sway myself away from that mood, but this story just did that as early as its first chapter. I love the message of this story. It is really something that all of us should ponder and learn especially younger readers. It doesn't just talk about bullying, redemption, family but also about friendship and how to overcome your fear. All of us can totally relate to each characters; you could either relate to Ishida, to Nishimiya, Nagatsuka, Ueno etc.It was also great that the author added the part about Nishimiya's mom; on what happened why she's so strict to her and even mean especially about her haircut when she was in Elementary. And speaking of haircut, I think it's because of Ishida's mother that she's influenced to take hair dressing course.It was actually my first time reading a story where the main character has disability and it was really kind of nice. Well, scratch that, it was great! I am giving this story a 4.5 stars for now because I'm waiting for some new updates. Hope this time Nishimiya and Ishida will finally be involved romantically? Wishful thinking.Rating: 4.5 out of 5 starsRead my full review postTo read more of my reviews, book news and updates:Main Blog: Blushing GeekFacebook Page
