ABOUT A SILENT VOICE
Synopsis: “Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as the teasing continues, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion. When they leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other again… until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. He wants to atone for his sins, but is it already too late…?”
ENGLISH DUB CAST
One of the things we’re most excited about with our release of A Silent Voice is the fact that we have dubbed the film into English produced by NYAV Post (Your Name, Napping Princess, A Letter To Momo) so that the many fans who couldn’t or weren’t able to experience the film at the time due it only being available in Japanese with subtitles will now be able to enjoy it again and again.

AllTheAnime.com Exclusive ‘A Silent Voice’ Bundle –
We know a lot of you love the visuals around the film and that you would like to be able to have some of the theatrical style posters as seen in cinemas. There’s been a lot of work behind-the-scenes to see if this would be possible and we’re happy to say we are able to offer special bundle that will be exclusive to our AllTheAnime.com web shop (while stock lasts) where you will receive the Ltd Collector’s Edition set AND also get two A3 posters!
The posters are not signed off (at time of writing) which is why they’re appearing as TBC in the image above, but to give you a hint as to what we’re hoping for here, one would (hopefully) be in similar style to our theatrical poster as seen in cinemas around the time of our theatrical release earlier this year, and the other (also hopefully) will be utilising certain imagery that’s featured in the Japanese home video release, that we were not able to include in our home video release.
The bundle is simply our Ltd Collector’s Edition version along with the two posters. The posters will be shipped separately in a poster tube in November 2017; the release date of the product itself is 30th October. The reason they will be shipped later is simply due to production time.
