So I heard that there might be an anime adaptation for Koe no Katachi. This would be huge if it turns out to be true. Not only because the anime can cover the entire manga since it’s short and pretty much done, but because the manga is simply fantastic.
It’s about a girl named Nishimiya who is deaf. She transferred to a class where everyone teases and bullies her for this. The ringleader is a boy named Ishida. Day after day he torments her, but when her mother complains everyone turns their back on him and bullies him along with her. The end off in bad terms, but years later in high school Ishida finds Nishimiya and wants to make amends. He even learned sign language to speak to her properly.
Things happen, but the beginning, which is like the One Shot, is the best part of this story. The best and one of the hardest things to read as well. I also liked how when they’re older you notice that even though Nishimiya is deaf and can’t convey her words in a way for everyone to understand, everyone else is similar and can’t speak as well.
It’s good. I love it.
I really hope this is true, because I’d love to see an adaptation of this. I was even going to write an article about five mangas that need to be made into animes and this was on the list. This news is just a rumour at this time, but I think it will happen.
