A Silent Voice
The manga starts with a girl running away from a boy. He claims that they were school mates. Then, the flashback starts. Six years back! Three naughty boys are playing in a bridge trying to jump into the water from the bridge. They call it a daily daredevil tournament. And that was their 41st daily daredevil tournament. The one who loses should offer snacks to the others. That was the deal. Our hero, Shoya Ishida is one among the three. He’s the naughtiest.
One day, he loses his shoes. One of his friends who goes to the cram school. A 2nd year elementary school kid has stolen his shoes. And the daredevil inside our hero go crazy. He just fought with that kid who was 5’11 and brought back his shoes. But unfortunately that kid had a big brother. Our hero was literally smashed.
Shoya is a naughty kid, but he too has his own principles. He does naughty stuffs just to get rid of boredom. That was his rule of life. And there came a new transfer student, Shoko Nishimiya. She can’t hear. She gave her intro with a notebook with stuffs written in it. Eventhough she has a disability, she looks adorable and so strong from the heart. The progress of the storyline might be about how they ended up like that what happened first in the future and what happens next. Apart from the official side, this manga (A Silent Voice) is personally recommended.
