Eleven Arts Unveils “A Silent Voice” English Trailer, 10/20 Premiere


This touching tale really is coming soon to a theater (possibly) near you.

Earlier today, Eleven Arts announced that they will screen A Silent Voice in theaters across the United States on October 20. The company streamed a subtitled trailer to promote the screening, which you can check out below.

Eleven Arts also screened the feature in July, at Anime Expo.

A Silent Voice is based on Yoshitoki Oima’s manga of the same name. The feature was directed by Naoko Yamada (K-ON!, Tamako Market) at Kyoto Animation, with Reiko Yoshida (Bakuman, Castle Town Dandelion) writing the script. The background score was composed by Kensuke Ushio (Ping Pong the Animation), while Futoshi Nishiya (Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club, Hyouka) provided character designs.

Eleven Arts describes the feature as:

“A Silent Voice” follows the poignant and moving story of Shōya Ishida, a school bully, and Shōko Nishimiya, a young girl with a hearing disability. Their story begins in sixth grade when Shōko transfers to Shōya’s elementary school and quickly finds herself bullied and isolated due to her hearing disability. Years later, the tables turn, and Shōya finds himself the victim. “A SilentVoice” depicts the struggles and challenges of adolescence alongside coming-of-age outside the norm.
