On top of this, the anime is easily in my top 10 of all time, though I may be a little biased on that due to owning all 7 volumes of the manga. This anime adaptation is well-paced compared to the source material and leaves out only the parts that slow the manga down. It would've been nice to see the final 3 chapters animated but I completely understand why they were not and it doesn't take away from the movie at all (after all, the source material still exists if you want to know what happens after the credits roll).
I won't go in depth on the elements of the story since I'm sure other reviewers have that covered, suffice to say you likely won't be disappointed by this one if you decide to watch it in English - unless you're naturally biased against English-voiced anime, in which case I don't really know why you would try watching in English in the first place.
Based on a 7 Volume Manga the story follows the Teenage growth a girl who's Deaf, and boy who bullies others for "fun" (As do others in the class) But one day it goes too far and he becomes the centre of attention for persecution and grows up with this remorse becoming an introvert.
The film covers him coming to terms with his past and learning to be social again.
For those after a Similar narrative the infamous Clannad (Inc After Story) is a good comparison.
NOTE: The Manga features more events than the film and surpasses the ending but the film covers most of the important bases
Also the Blu Ray Production run had a number of copies with a broken disk clasp (I've seen 9 so far, which seems to a production error) Fortunately a Replacement was sent and is fine
This is more a thought provoking piece about communicating, bullying and self worth and it is very uniquely animated to show how lonely someone can be made to feel and how a group of people can react to both delude and excuse themselves in regards to bullying an individual.
Soundtrack and artwork are excellent.
Both the dub and the sub are extremely high quality from a voice acting perspective. While I almost exclusively watch in sub format, this one is far better dubbed imo. The voice direction is on point and weighting feels more appropriate in parts. Localisation is done really well and some scenes that were originally jarring due to "anime-isms" or cultural differences are adapted extremely well.

Deals with some complex themes such as childhood bullying and redemption.
Would definitely recommend, a must watch.
