『聲の形』 or “A Silent Voice” is a fantastic trailer for a slice of life anime with a common plot in romantic slice of life anime, but with a twist on the heroine of the movie. From the trailer the animation already looks great and the peaks of voice acting from the heroine of this title feel like it will be quite unique in anime. Personally I don’t know of many slice of life anime featuring a boy meets girl, that happens to be deaf, kind of story. From the trailer it feels like the story will surround the development of their relationship and a lot of the conflict in the story may come from the stigmas of dating someone that is different which tends to be looked down upon in many cultures, as well as possible struggles in expressing herself fully. I’m looking forward to seeing this in some way and highly hope for an American release, subtitled of course.
