Purple Plan is bringing Kyoto Animation’s beautiful anime movie, A Silent Voice, also known in Japan as Koe no Katachi, in Singaporean and Malaysian theaters! Now, their official Facebook page has now revealed a brand new trailer for that Singapore/Malaysia release!
I hope you brought in some tissues, because this movie is going to be a Feels Trip! And mark your calendars folks, because Purple Plan also revealed that the film will be making its premiere in theaters on March 9, 2017.
The movie is based on Yoshitoki Ooima’s internationally popular romance drama about disability, bullying, and love. The manga follows Shoya Ishida, who bullies his deaf classmate, Shoko Nishimiya in elementary school. However, as soon as Nishimiya transfers, he himself gets isolated and the tables get turned as he is now the one getting bullied. He succumbs to depression, but his life changes as soon as he gets reunited with the deaf girl he once bullied…
The film has been nominated for several awards back in Japan, and even won the Excellent Animation of the Year award for the annual 40th Japan Academy Prize. The film stars Miyu Irino as Shouya Ishida, while Saori Hayami voices Shouko. K-On! and Tamako Market director, Naoko Yamada, directs the film.
