English dub gets BD/DVD release in U.K. on October 30

U.K. publisher Anime Limited began streaming an English-dubbed clip for A Silent Voice on Tuesday. The clip features deaf actress Lexi Cowden as Shoko and Robbie Daymond as Shoya.

An earlier clip featured Daymond with Amber Lee Connors as Miki Kawai, Graham Halstead as Tomohiro Nagatsuka, Melissa Hope as Miyoko Sahara, and Kristen Sullivan as Yuzuru Nishimiya.

The rest of the cast is as follows:

Stephanie Sheh is the director and casting director on the dub. Amanda Winn Lee and Michael Sinterniklaas are providing additional directing and Clark Cheng is spotting. Lee and Cheng are also providing additional writing, and Lee is serving as consultant. Anime Limited will release the film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on October 30.

Additional voices include Christine Marie Cabanos, Marc Diraison, Amanda Winn Lee, Michael Schneider, Michael Sinterniklaas, Stephanie Sheh, and Michael Sorich.

Naoko Yamada and Kyoto Animation's anime film is based on Yoshitoki Ōima's manga of the same name. Anime Limited screened the film with English subtitles in the United Kingdom and Ireland in March. Viz Media Europe acquired the rights to distribute the film in the European Union, Russia, Turkey, and French-speaking African countries. Eleven Arts Anime Studio will screen the film in the United States in Japanese with English subtitles beginning on October 20.

Crunchyroll describes the original manga's story:

I wish we had never met. I wish we could meet once again.
A boy who can hear, Shoya Ishida, and a transfer student who can't, Shoko Nishimiya. One fateful day, the two meet, and Shoya leads the class in bullying Shoko. But before long, the class shifts its target from Shoko to Shoya. Years later, Shoya feels strongly that he must see Shoko once again.

The film earned 2.3 billion yen in Japan, and was the 19th highest-grossing film released in Japan in 2016.

Update: Amber Lee Connors name spelling fixed. Thanks, Marissa.
