posted on by Karen Ressler
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 2017. Eleven Arts Anime Studio screened the film in the United States in Japanese with English subtitles in October 2017 and with an English dub in February.
U.K. distributor Anime Limited released the film and its English dub on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in October 2017. Viz Media Europe acquired the rights to distribute the film in the European Union, Russia, Turkey, and French-speaking African countries.
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.
