Growing up and getting through high school can be hard when you’re a bit different, but when bullies are involved it is even harder. Now imagine if the only person you had that you could turn to was the bully from your childhood! That is exactly what happens in A Silent Voice the Movie, an adaptation of the Manga Yoshitoki Oima. And the result is a powerful story that blends coming of age and adapting at the same time.
The movie is beautifully animated and one that is easily relatable for all audiences. Because of some of the topics covered, it is for the 13+ audience, but one that you will thoroughly enjoy watching with your family.

I can feel like an outcast whenever in a situation where everyone knows each other and I have no clue who people are in new groups.
Recent job transfer. HR has been pretty cool though and slowly finding my groove.
Ahh at a summer camp we had a dance and it felt like I was the only one sitting. After dancing by myself and kind-of with a group of other campers. I felt very alone and I was 14 away from home not knowing anyone. Then the cutest counselor came over and asked me to dance, he asked me several times that night, and then boy’s started to ask me into the night because I was so happy and danced until the last dance while the other girls were worn out. I wonder if he knew I had a crush on him! I blocked out a lot of my child hood, but I will always remember the way he made me feel that night.
