Kyoto Animation (KyoAni) has adapted Yoshitoki Ooima’s critically-acclaimed manga, A Silent Voice, into an anime movie. The film is currently #2 in the Japanese box office, and Kyoto Animation has teased fans more about the movie with a 33-minute making-of video:
The video explores the movie, introduces its story and characters, features interviews with staff and cast, and like most “making of” videos, it features how the movie was made.
The manga follows the relationship between Shoya Ishida, and the deaf/ mute transfer student, Shoko Nishimiya. Shoya 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. The movie premiered last September 17, 2016 in Japan.
