Because none of them wanted to take responsibility. That's the point of the film. When Shoko was the perceived problem they were fine with her being abused. Then when it was convenient to save themselves they used Shoya as the scapegoat for what they enabled. Shoya and Shoko making up is the worst case scenario for all of them, because if the Bully and the Bullied aren't antagonistic towards each other and present a united front that means they're all liable again to suffer negative consequences for their actions since they were all enablers and participants so the natural reaction is to try and crush them both to defend the majority.

they cut so much of the manga and all this time skipping confused was awful literally killed whatever momentum it was building up because only Shoko and Shoya were the only people developed.

Did anyone else find it funny tho when Yuzuru was walking home her mom comes out of no where to slap him? It was so out of blue I was like what the fuck she slapped him for nothing when compared to the manga a whole lot of shit goes down and also Shoya and Shoko's first fight was supposed to be outside not inside the school and was wayyyy more brutal then that pussy shit they showed

>On November 25, 1988, four boys abducted Furuta, a third-year high school student from Misato, Saitama Prefecture, and held her captive for over 40 days in a house in the Ayase district of Adachi, Tokyo,[1] owned by the parents of one of the boys, a 17-year-old whose name was Jō and who was later given the surname Kamisaku.[2]

>In order to avoid any concern over her abduction, the perpetrators forced Furuta to call her parents and tell them that she would be staying at a friend’s house for a while. The parents of Kamisaku were present at least part of the time Furuta was held captive, yet did not intervene, later claiming that they feared their son too much to do so.

>The killers hid her corpse in a 208-litre drum filled with concrete; the perpetrators disposed of the drum in a tract of reclaimed land in Kōtō, Tokyo.

Bad writing. Did they move away from the Ishida because they did not want to be responsible for that? Okay. The problem is that the manga movie does not develop that, so instead of looking like it was to avoid guilt, it seems they did purely because they are assholes. And why? Because this is convenient for the melodrama. And don't come to me with this shit that children are bad and blablabla. There is always a reason for bad behaviour, family, environment, whatever, unless you are a psycho. But again, the story does not bother to figure it out, because the only important thing is the melodrama.

Want another proof? They put a deaf girl to sing in a choir.

Peer Pressure. and group dynamic.

People who didn't have a scape-goat (and even then if they weren't one themselves, they will be denying it) will have an hard time believing it often happens like that in reality.

People have an hard time admitting their fault. it's even stronger when the one seen "at fault" become the victim of harassment. Then consciously or subconsciously, the way of thinking become "Anyone but me".

>There is always a reason for bad behaviour, family, environment, whatever, unless you are a psycho.
I have been a scape Goat. I can tell you that the main reason is "I don't want to be the scapeGoat, so better him than me"

I don't know for the anime, but the manga is very well written and do a good job at presenting how this sort of behaviour can easily pop out.

>Want another proof? They put a deaf girl to sing in a choir.
Have you not interacted enough with SJW to realize that it's eaxtly th kind of BS that "well intentioned" teacehrs who don't actually know shit will try to pull? Yes those kind of people get in charge sometimes and it's awful.

>>
>>157409590
>So Shoya doing a 180 upset them because they realized they were assholes
They realized they had some kind of relief of him doing that and they didn't want to admit theyr own responsibility.

It's not so much they wanted Shoya to be an asshole again, but that he made an ideal "villain" and him not being the vilain of t story anymore would made them face their own actions.

everyone ratted on him so they would feel it wasn't their fault.

My main problem with the entire series. I was hoping Kawai, the justice classmate, Ueno and maybe Saha would be cut.

If only they could focus on the main two, the sister and his new best friend, it would all have been great. Instead they come across half developed and you wonder by the end of it, why bullies like Ueno and Kawai are just walking out of it all without a scratch (bohoo that she got slapped, she even slapped bacl).

5/10, great animation and VA, story fell flat except the ending and the first half.

I think the characters' actions became bland in the movie, because unlike the manga, it focused too much on Shoko and Ishida's relationship, instead of focusing on their inner demons. In the manga it was showed how hard Ishida had it after he had a fight with Shoko and how unfair it was because even the teacher laughed when everyone was bullying Shoko. Ishida only bullied her because he thought it was the right thing to do, Shoko frustrated everyone because she was weird, he was just having fun with her (according to him). But the movie left that out. Also in the movie Kawai was kind of bland, while in the manga she was a total bitch. Also Kyoani needed to focus more on Shoko to characterize her a little more.

We do not know why the teacher let that happen, because the story does not go deep. We do not know what the other students thought of it, because the story does not go deep. We do not know what Nishimiya thought of it, because the story does not go deep. See? The author does not want to delve into anything, she just wants to use such scenes to make the reader cry.

So I'm not saying that situations like that are impossible in real life, I'm saying that using a situation like that the way it was used is too cheap.

The more I read, the more convinced I am that 99% of people complaining about nonsensical or forced drama are either those who read the manga and are projecting their memories and expectations from that onto the movie or those who are too autistic to understand human interaction and behavior.

I've never read the manga (though always wanted to) and I thought the movie was excellent. With the exception of the completely forgettable 'why did they even put him in the movie' Mashiba, every character felt well-done with very realistic actions, emotions and motivations. I felt like I understood every character just fine, and nothing that happened felt especially bizarre or unrealistic.
I get the feeling some characters have been changed a fair bit from the manga - for example, many people have been talking about Kawai in the manga as a terrible and manipulative person, whereas in the movie she came across as genuinely kind and good-natured but extremely naiive, completely oblivious to how her passivity helped enable bullying on everyone's part and thus shocked to tears when called out on it. Is that change for the better? I dunno, but her character certainly worked for the movie.

if thats what you got from the movie then i gotta tell you buddy, thats quite the opposite of kawai, she targeted shoko because of her jelousy. she thought ishida was a cool kid when he was bullying shoko and had a crush on him since elementary school, she wanted to hook up with ishida so she did everything in her power to make shoko stay away from ishida.
That is what i got from the manga.
>>
>>157423803
Well great, none of that seems to be in the movie at all. Looks like her character was changed quite a bit from the manga, and if that's so I can see why some things in the latter half/the ending seem so nonsensical if you're coming in with that memory of her character. But judging solely from what's present in the movie everything works fine.

But why in the world would they be mandatory? Just because one student speaks a different language doesn't mean you force all the other students to learn that language. Make it available if they want to learn sure, that's great, but mandatory makes no sense.

Shouya gets called out for bullying by the teacher so he starts blaming other people aswell. This is completely natural behavior.

In response the other kids get angry at him for snitching and deny, deny, deny. This is also completely natural behavior.

As to the deaf girl in a choir, when I was 9 there was a deaf girl in my class who participated in all activities, that included group singing during music class. The teachers did not want her to feel left out just because she couldn't speak very well.

Bullying has always been heavily dependent on the majority vote. As long as the bully doesn't involve the majority, nobody will touch you. However, not even the bully can control the majority. Thus, it's only a matter of time until the majority turns against you.

>>157422305
I agree the movie handled it well for what it had. I'm a mangafag and my biggest problem in the film was putting screen time for some characters to be barely developed instead of developing the character better. The manga is not perfect though, it had really shitty sub arcs, so I don't think it's great and I don't even expect a 1 to 1 adaptation. But there are parts of the manga that were cut in the film that better display Shouko and Shoya's suicidal tendencies. Which to me is the best part of the manga. They pulled off a lot of things well but they didn't delve deeper into the central characters which they used the time instead to put time towards characters that were even barely characters at the end of the film.

i mean, coming every day to school and having "kill yourself" "you're an idiot" "faggot" etc. written on your desk, EVERY DAY would kinda bum you out pretty bad. becoming socially excluded from your entire class also bums you out pretty bad. if you already had this things happen to you normally when you where in school and they didn't bother you then i'm pretty sure you're autistic.

There's also the tendency to view desks and chairs, as well as school shoes, as a student's responsibility, and the school sometimes leaves it to the student to take care of such things.

This should of been a tv series to begin with. They tried to fit in way too much in two hours and they really missed a lot of characterization for the supporting cast.

This story is fucking awful. It dramatises having a disability in such a fucking retarded way. One could even say it romanticises having a disability. It's melodramatic in the most awful fucking ways. The characters are NOT characters, they're merely catalysts for the most retarded dramatic events to happen. Nothing they do makes sense. And i'm not saying that in a "children/teens should be able to make rational decisions" way, i mean they literally don't act like people, regardless of age.

Made even more fucking awful by Kyoani cutting out the little character development there was, making Characters like Mashiba(?) and Natsuyama (?) -- i honestly don't really remember their names -- so fucking shallow. Fat kid just seemed like a fucking lonely creep who doesn't actually understand what it means to connect to people and only clings to Shoya because he's the only one who was ever kind to his fat ass, yet talks as if he knows everything about friendship, and red haired dude just comes out of nowhere, wants to be friends, then 20 minutes later on the bridge goes "I thought we were friends..."

This is an awfully paced, awfully realized adaption of already exploitative source material with beautiful animation

Haven't seen the movie yet as i'm waiting for non shitsubs to come out. I'm a third year psych student and can attest that people, teenagers especially, will conform to group behaviour. the description you gave sounds as if the classmates' behaviour changes on a whim, I assume there was likely a ringleader or more influential classmate that instigated the treatment of shoko/shoya and the others went along. Teenagers are easily influenced by their peers, even if they dont engage in the behaviour, they'll often facilitate it. I would assume this is also the case as to why the classmates enabled the bullying of Shoko
>>

Do you think that Kawai has the tendency to be the ringleader during her elementary days?
>>
>play movie

>>
>>157439362
apologies i've only watched the first 20 minutes until i decided to hold off from watching for now, during the part that i saw when the deaf girl first came to the school, it was definitely MC and one of the girls that came across as ringleaders, one for the male students and one for the females.
>>
>>157439431
Kawai has the most connections as the most friendly in the class, but it was Ueno who continued to do shit against Shoko, although Ueno probably did those things for her own sake.
>>
>>157422305
> for example, many people have been talking about Kawai in the manga as a terrible and manipulative person, whereas in the movie she came across as genuinely kind and good-natured but extremely naiive, completely oblivious to how her passivity helped enable bullying on everyone's part and thus shocked to tears when called out on it. Is that change for the better? I dunno, but her character certainly worked for the movie.

I got to say, I didn't read the manga, but even just from having watched the movie, Kawai doesn't strike me as a kind person in the slightest.
In fact, in a way I would say she is even worse than Ueno. Ueno at least is honest about and self aware of how much of a cunt she was and is; Kawai on the other hand has at best deluded herself into thinking that she did nothing wrong and at worst (And most likely in my opinion) built up a facade of innocence around herself to protect her from being held responsible.
Whenever somebody calls her out for what she is, she will start crying and and put up her inncocent act so that people around her support her when in reality she was just as bad as anybody else.
In other words, no matter if consciously or unconsciously, she still is manipulative in the movie, it's perhaps just not spelled out as explicitly as in the manga.

Shouya is a dickhead.

He is trash human being who wants empirical experience to every curiosity he has. And even once he satisfied his curiosity, he got comfortable and got on bullying until it hit him, he got fucking bullying into a comfort zone.

He wouldn't listen to anyone until he experienced it because he was immature hothead who completely lacked empathy.

It's not necessarily bad thing to indulge in curiosities, but even as a kid I noticed how when people say "you live only once" they mean alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

Just finished seeing this, they removed too much from the manga and it kinda shits up on the movie.
Like they removed the movie-subplot which was one of the main reasons as to why Shouko goes around talking to everyone when Shouya is in a coma, in the movie it's all about "I don't want us to hate each other." They also don't go back to Shouya's old elementary school for the movie and so Eyebrow-kun can learn about Shouko's bullying
They removed a bunch of other things but kept the result of what they removed (Shouko getting a haircut at Shouya's mother hair salon, and at the end of the movie Shouko's mother getting a haircut there for example.)
I understand they couldn't fit everything in there, but they should have kept some of things they removed. It would have been better.
Movie is still great though, just wished they kept a bit more of the manga.
I'm glad Pedro is in this though

The teachers let it happen because they are trying to teach shoko as if she were a normal student. That's why they let her in.

Not only that, but her mother pushed for that as well. That's why shoko was even going to a regular school instead of a special school.

The kids were bullies. Kids tend to do that in real life. We don't have to delve into ever single student to ask why they do what they do. Ueno, kawai, shimada, and ishida himself all bullied her in some way because they were trying to fit in with each other.

All this shit is in the manga.

I really hated that in both the manga and the movie.

The movie should have removed that whole scene completely and made their relationship completely platonic. By bringing up a romance subplot and just dropping it, it really reduces Nishimiya's character. If they really wanted to keep the whole thing in they should have let Nishimiya get out over her crush by having her see that Shouya's approach was not in an effort to romance her and sees him as a complete human and not as an idealized crush.

The manga is worse since they really push the romance by having the characters edge Shouya on to kiss her and they even go on a date. At the very end Shouya's mother even suggests him move to Tokyo with Shouko and he considers it only to backpedal at the last second and stay back home for no reason.

It wouldn't even be that bad if they didn't have to forcibly include them seeing each other again at the coming of age ceremony and awkwardly reference them flirting and giving no closure on what the fuck their plans were after that.

All that, couples with the fact that Nishimiya and Shoya don't have a scene alone at the end to give some closure on their relationship (both platonic and romantic) to give some closure at the end makes me wonder what even was the point of including a romance subplot to begin with.

Dude, she's a cute little deaf girl. She probably had a crush on Ishida and latched onto that. Not many young boys would have taken interest in her, but he sure did, even if in a negative way.

Then, assuming she was the blame, Ishida gets bullied for not taking all the blame for her bullying. She cleans his desk and shit, etc.

And then, out of nowhere. He appears out of nowhere and tries to return her precious notebook, which include both sad and happy memories for her. And to top it off, he's studied sign language to a conversational level just so he could properly communicate with her.

She clearly fell for him a fair bit during that scene. Maybe even she could fall in love and be somewhat normal. The main problem is Ishida think he's less than dogshit, and literally doesn't see romance between them. He sees atonement for his past sins and shit.

It's supposed to be tragic. He feels like he wronged her in the worst possible way and needs to make it up to her, and all she sees is a boy who picked on her in school and wants to make up and try to be proper friends this time.

>There's so much young Ishida suffering.
I don't get off to seeing people suffer. I liked the approach in the film. It felt very true to real life and made every situation very relatable.
>>
>>157447329
Manga's characters are more fleshed out, so it's really worth reading just for that. The beginning with young Shouya is really really good.

The main problem with the manga is the ending, which is exactly what gets in the movie version (for better).
>>
>>157447602
Dude, the spectacle is worth it. I have never seen a little kid get so shit on just for existing.
>>
So, I can't be alone in thinking that had this been a TV series (or a longer film), it would've been better? The supporting cast really needed more of the spotlight and some of the scenes that were cut would've made the ending far more potent. Stuff like the inclusion of the funeral and grandmother was just sloppy. Granted, I loved the movie, but it would've been carried more power/meaning had I cared about half the cast in the final montage sequence within the film itself.
>>
>>157447408
>Nishimiya's dream about being normal and her staring at the ceiling afterwards
I'm pissed this wasn't in the movie too. It's the best part of the whole manga.
>>
>>157447408
I always wondered if that was her imaging being normal, or her imagining having different reaction to the teasing. I like to think it was latter and it helped grow to be a more assertive person and try be less passive.

>>157447602
It's not him being bullied by his peers. It's more about seeing how his personality and family situation would put him in situation where he would tease Nishimiya.

>>157447206
I like this interpretation, and would have liked a scene where Nishimiya sort of confirms and comes to terms to her flawed perspective of Shouya's intentions. It's just completely dropped midway through and feels completely unsatisfying.
>>
>>157447408
I was really hoping to see this scene. I felt false hope when it started to go to the hazy dreamlike state during the hospital part only for her to just wake up and run outside.
>>
>>157447329
The film is far better, it's not even close. It's not just about the plotlines. It's the way the editing, the sound design and cinematography bring tangible meaning to "The Shape of Voice" and the struggles of youth and how the impressionistic lighting/colors and character acting convey the emotions of the characters way better than the drawings in the manga. An example of this is when manga tries to be visceral through brute force and in-malleable lineart while the anime does so through muted sounds or quiet ambient music and ends up reflecting the core of the story much better.

So did they ever hook up? Did his ex friend become a trans?

No, you are a shit, Herkz. Nii-sama did good work with editing it, collecting all used fonts and uploading it with 1080p video. If anyone is wondering, it'd probably the best and most faithful option. 35mm is a localized commie-like crap.

Help I can't watch seasonal anime anymore after experiencing this film. The aesthetics are too uninspired.

Ishida asks her to help him to continue to live on the bridge. How much more do you want?

I have a lot of issues with this show, but in the first place, why wasn't Shouko in a special ed class? Didn't the school have a special ed class, judging by pic related, or am I missing something? How irresponsible of the adults to allow such a thing to happen.
>>
>>157448496
I've had nothing but this film on my mind for since it dropped. Watched the Aim for the Ace and finished Ashita no Joe 2, couldn't even care cause all I was thinking of was Koe no Katachi. Seen it twice since the bluray came out, want to watch it again when subs are out.

Mother pressured the school to include her girl because she wanted her to be as "normal" as possible. Since Shouko wasn't completely deaf (she can still hear a little) they gave it a shot.
>>
So many stupid replies from people that didnt understand the movie and have no clue about direction or animation. A bunch of edgy teenagers talking about muh cartoons without any knowledge. Its laughable.
>>
>>157449345
The movie butchered a lot of things. A lot of characters are different or completely pointless.

What I took from the movie is that some people never change (ueno, kawai) and some do (ishida).
>>
>>157449750
No, im glad the movie focused on the two main duo only and cut the movie arc and romance shit. I could care less about the side characterrs. The mange felt quite boring for me, but I enjoyed the movie much more. its a story from Shouya's POV.

"Clements: As a 7 volumes manga, you can’t choose to adapt every event. What particular elements did you want to focus on in your adaptation?

Yamada: It was the story of the protagonist Ishida Shouya, that’s what I wanted to tell. Obviously he did something deplorable, but there’s also hope and redemption."

Watch her set her up.

Koe no Katachi has left a big impression on me but I feel too strongly about K-On to vote one way or the other
>>
>>157451417
Because Ueno "becoming a better person" happened after a timeskip, and she just showed herself as being a decent person, not particularly a good one attempting to right her wrongs.

Kawai was a double-faced, manipulative, lying piece of shit, but Ueno was on a level that she even justified her own actions, and blamed Nishimiya for getting bullied. Kawai at least tried to pretend she was decent, which shows she acknowledges the bullying was wrong.

Many people want to be soft on Ueno because she's hot (and she indeed is), but as a person she's garbage.
>>
>>157451474
I can't really vote.
For one, I cannot divide K-On by seasons or movie. I see it as a whole.

As far as visuals go, KnK is better as it's a newer work.

On the other hand, K-On is by far the easiest work to become attached to (at least to me), since it's a longer work (39 episodes, 2 OVAs and 1 movie), and thus it allows viewers to establish a solid connection with the characters.

I find Tamako Market as just forgettable.

Hello Kawai.

That's not how it works. Anime is not so mechanical and artless. Koe no Katachi "looks better" because Yamada has stylistically and ideologically progressed / improved as a filmmaker.
>>
>>157452269
Uhhh... You do know what "pretend" means, right?
My point wasn't that she was actually decent (because she was a piece of shit), but that she just tried to project that image, in order for the people around her to think she was a cute and likeable girl.

Also, the pic you posted of Ueno is one from the second to last chapter, and as I said, she simply presented herself as decent, hardly any remorse for what she did to Nishimiya, but sad for having to let go of the guy she likes.

>>157452355
That's what I meant... Yamada has improved over time, and it's been 8 years since the first season of K-On aired.
So, not only has Yamada got better, the tools they use for animation are probably better as well.

Anyone else find it insulting they way the subbers translated Shouko's dialogue into broken English?
It felt like they were making fun of her and almost ruined some serious moments.
>>
>>157453595
Depends how easy it is to understand her for native speakers I think
>>
>>157453595
I wanted to edit it firstly, but then I had no idea how to do it.
I don't think that translators wanted to insult her or something. It sounds just like this.
>>
>>157453595
I haven't watched it with subs, but I think it's okay to translate broken Japanese into broken English. Have you heard a deaf person speak English before? It's weird, not something to make fun of but it's still weird.
>>
>>157448132
Removing honorifics was one of many bad movements of 35mm. 35mm is a translation for complete normalfags, nice for a shitty dub or something. You don't even know how many things were lost in their translation.
Yes. It's definitely commie-like subbing, crap for normalfags.

No she doesn't. She acknowledges that others view bullying as wrong and it would reflect badly on her to show otherwise. Kawai is a fucking psychopathic bitch.

Now I see why you'd write apologetics for Kawai.

Just watched it again on BD, definitely the most kino movie produced by Kyoani hands down.
>>
>>157456859
Now its not anymore KyoAni otaku pandering show. Now its a normie show!! Haha laughable arguments from pathethic people. They always find something to complain about. Pathethic. It hurts that even normal people can appreciate KyoAni works, right?
KyoAni is the best studio.

No. It was like that in the manga and it was fine.
>>
>>157459209
The manga needed to express her speech impediment in some way.

In the movie the impediment is heard from her voice, it is not necessary for the subtitles to indicate that also.
