Japanese movie distributor, Shochiku, has released a line-up for the upcoming movies expected for release between 2016 and 2017, and one of them is the much-anticipated anime film adaptation of Yoshitoki Ooima’s bestselling manga, A Silent Voice – Koe no Katachi, which will be animated by the renowned animation studio, Kyoto Animation, or KyoAni.
The manga follows the relationship between Shoya Ishida, and the deaf/ mute transfer student, Shoko Nishimiya, who started bullying her with his classmates on the day they met. However, the tables soon turn when their classmates turn on Shoya as well. Years later, Shoya feels the need that he must see Shoko.
The anime adaptation was announced last year, and it was revealed that it won’t be a TV anime, but an animated film, and KyoAni is the one responsible for adapting it into an anime.
