Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: September 2015
Volumes: 7

Volume: 1. 2. 4.

Goodreads Synopsis:


Shoya’s decided to do everything he can to make up for how terribly he treated Shoko, his former classmate who can’t hear. But more than the challenge of learning to communicate, it means facing a past he thought he’d left behind forever. Now a reunion with old friends will transform Shoya, and his relationship with Shoko.


This volume explores more of Shoya and Shoko’s past, with the reintroduction of two of their past classmates. Shoya goes looking when Shoko asks, and it’s all brought on by his awkward inability to be honest and upfront with her.
Shoko is reunited with the one girl who was nice to her, but who transferred out before any of the real bad stuff happened. And this forms a real friendship between, and a surprise for Shoya, as he finds himself feeling left out. He wants to be the one at her side, even if he denies it.
Then Shoya runs into the girl that was at his side in school, just as mean as he was, goading him on. And while Shoya is trying to move past that, be better, she’s just the same as she was then.
Then there’s the ending, and that’s just bad. Poor Shoko, and dumb Shoya.
I can’t wait for the next one.
