Average Rating

As a wild youth, elementary school student Shouya Ishida sought to beat boredom in the cruelest ways. When the deaf Shouko Nishimiya transfers into his class, Shouya and the rest of his class thoughtlessly bully her for fun. However, when her mother notifies the school, he is singled out and blamed for everything done to her. With Shouko transferring out of the school, Shouya is left at the mercy of his classmates. He is heartlessly ostracized all throughout elementary and middle school, while teachers turn a blind eye. Now in his third year of high school, Shouya is still plagued by his wrongdoings as a young boy. Sincerely regretting his past actions, he sets out on a journey of redemption: to meet Shouko once more and make amends. Koe no Katachi tells the heartwarming tale of Shouya's reunion with Shouko and his honest attempts to redeem himself, all while being continually haunted by the shadows of his past.

Encoder's Notes

Yeah, this movie is perfect.

I noticed the Italian BDs were a lot better than Japanese ones, so I’ll be redoing the encode one of these days. Will write more in this section later.

As you probably well know, this movie is supposed to hit you in the feels. You should also read the manga. I should too…


Better than Kimi no Na wa. This movie made me cry, Kimi no Na wa made me frustrated.


Great source material + KyoAni = an absolutely amazing movie.


Manga readers didn’t enjoy it since it felt rushed to them, but if your an “anime only” it’s completely worth your time to watch this film


While it’s no Kimi no Na Wa, it’s a close second. This movie made me cry the most and appreciate life the most than any other. Recommend.


Touching documentary about how bad parenting and indifferent teachers can cause large amounts of drama in today’s youth.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!


    can i kwill u plis ??
