Yay, a Mashiba chapter!


Kawai is too self-centered, Ueno too selfish. Nagatsuka is too clingy, Sahara too acquiescent. Nishimiya and Ishida are both too hard on themselves. 


When aerisheir commented this, I realize that it was intentional that every character had their own particular fault - but until now, we were not able to determine what Mashiba's fault was.  This was a good chapter to see that.


We can see that of the entire crew, Mashiba is, if we haven't realized it yet, brilliant - the fact that he can see through Kawaii's charade says it within itself.  But we now realize that his real reasons for associating with Ishida (to make himself seem normal) and his motivation for being a teacher (to bury his desire to be normal by being the definition of normal [yet being in position of power with children.... I roll my eyes there])



Me gusta mas la vr 1 donde ponen "chico brocoli", "sujeto extravagante" y especialmente "Zorra demente"




Gracias café con stalin

The Satoshi Mashiba chapter!!!


He is by far the least developed character and have the weakest presence. We all know that he is the white knight, but this chapter revealed his dark side. It looks like he is planning something sinister for the kid, but damn that is twisted. He looks creepy since the beginning and maybe that was the author was going for.


Mashiba was able to piece out the truth behind Kawai and the bullying. 


But I'm still lost for his motivations. He wanted to be near Ishida to validate his plan to possibly ruin the child of his bullies? The fact that Ishida was trying to fix his mistakes showed Mashiba how wrong he is? 

That smile is creepy though.

This chapter made me realize why Kawai grosses me out.

her ability to lie to herself is creepy as hell, even moreso than her narcissism.

Mashiba has a good moral compass but needs to fix  a few things.


Kawai can tell right from wrong but is blind to her own actions. Her wall took a few hits in these last two chapters, let's hope it crumbles.


As for Ueno, good job on Kawaii (never thought I would say this) on laying the truth on her and on Shouya's mom by making her feel unconfortable by being nice.

Gracias Café con Lenin c:

Me agrada Mashiba.

I can't believe we only have a few chapters left... I don't want a sad ending :(

It only ends in November. That means, we still have around 11 chapters. Enough to even finish that movie.



I can't believe we only have a few chapters left... I don't want a sad ending :(


A Kawai-centered chapter - and we finally get to see inside her head.  She sees everyone else as pretty much "faceless" - I doubt this is the same reason as Ishida, where he sees people as "fake" - more of Kawai sees these people as just figures that lack "cuteness", or character.  She takes so much pride in herself and her 'justice' that those that have no meaning in her life might as well be... just there.


That said, even though I now understand her, I still hate her.  Yes, we now know for what reason she does things, but her reasoning is far, FAR worse than Ueno - Kawai sees no wrong in her actions, whereas at least Ueno knows that she resorts to violence too easily and is aware that there is something wrong (even though she still doesn't see what she does to Shouko as wrong, which obviously leads to some hate considering that Shouko is our main heroine).  


And to think: we were probably like this when we were all teens!

Kawai is too self-centered, Ueno too selfish. Nagatsuka is too clingy, Sahara too acquiescent. Nishimiya and Ishida are both too hard on themselves. While none of these qualities are necessarily bad to have, balancing them all out can be difficult, almost impossible - but it's a part of growing up. I can still see parts of myself reflected in all of these characters in some way. Hopefully we'll see everyone mature in some way by the end of this - Sahara and Nagatsuka have already changed. Though personally, I wouldn't mind if Kawai didn't change - it would just go to show that some people never realize their faults. Eventually they'll be called out on it, and by that point, it's too late.

just read the one-shot(chapter 0) and i gotta say those kids are really scary...since when are kids that scary, i just graduated from high school for five years and never seen such things before...

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-08-04/a-silent-voice-koe-no-katachi-manga-to-end-on-november-12/.77278 Koe no katachi will end pion volume 7 instead of 6, did it really need the extra volume ?


Oh noes!!! It's ending! Why do good manga die young?! The author really hates drawing lots of faces seeing that in the ch 48 the other students do not have faces. Is there a meaning  like Shouya's crossed out faces?


I do agree that Kawai is victimizing herself. In addition she is deluding herself and not even self-reflecting on her actions. Rather she goes and demonizes others. Truly despicable.

Lol, what's with all the hate for Kawai? I mean considering what was revealed in ch. 49 It's pretty clear that she's trying to help out in the way that she believes is correct, and it all seems genuine with no malicious thoughts. After all isn't that the ONLY point? Lol, Come on, Its not like she's the only character in the manga with a warp sense of "justice" or whatever you wanna call it. Lol, so let's not be a hyprocite guys and give a pass! WHO'S WITH ME!?


Either way, with the way things are going, it seems like the mangaka is aiming for a happy ending where everyone becomes best buddies and they live happily ever after.


She does not "help out" or have any "justice". She made herself a victim and justified her action by believing her own thought are absolute. She did everything only to have people think that she cute or attractive. Do you think she make those paper crane with the thought of sympathy? Why only now she snap with Ueno? She can not see beyond herself.

both of the girls are fucking disgusting.




I just literally fucking throw my headphone right at the screen.

Holy fuck she is the most I characteristic character I have ever had the ill fortune of coming across.

Every single character no matter how vile I can have some empathetic value towards.

Her? Fuck no, she is so self righteous its inhuman, how the fuck can she believe she is faultless.

With the latest chapter, it does seem to prove some suspicions about how clueless/un-empathetic Kawai is...



Can this ugly girl just disappear from the manga? god I hate

This fucking whore


Even with some of her inner thoughts exposed, Kawai is truly a pitiable existence.

Did anyone else got embarassed while reading this chapter?
