A Silent Voice, Vol. 1A Silent Voice, Vol. 1
by Yoshitoki Oima
Kodansha Comics, 192 pgs
Rating: Teen (13 +)

Being a new transfer student is never easy, but for Shoko this is especially true to her deafness. Her lack of hearing quickly attracts the attention of Shoyo, a young boy who will do anything to keep himself entertained, including bullying Shoko relentlessly. I had heard some very good things about this series, but beyond the basic premise I really had no idea what to expect from it. What I got was a powerful and emotional tale about a bully and his victim. From Yoshitoki Oima comes the series that won her the “New Creator Prize” at the 19th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize, A Silent Voice, Vol. 1
