One of the things I like about this volume is how it develops a couple of characters, one who's shown up a few times and the other who has been mentioned but hasn't appear until now.
The reader finally meets Shoko's grandmother, both in the present and in flashbacks, and she's someone well worth meeting, a woman of strength and character.
Shoko and Yuzuru's mother hasn't always come off as a sympathetic character, but here we learn more about her and the things that have happened to her, and come to understand her better. We also find out why we haven't seen Shoko's father, and what we learn says nothing good about him.
This is an intense volume, and not always comfortable. The ways the characters speak about themselves and each other is more blunt then is usual, in fiction or in real life. But that's also one reason that a story that could have become a typical feel-good romance becomes something special. There is plenty of humor, but also strongly emotional moments, too.
I can strongly recommend giving “A Silent Voice” as a whole a shot, and this Volume 4 is a good addition to the story.
A Silent Voice is the translation of the Japanese manga series 聲の形 (romaji: Koe no Katachi). The subject matter involves a deaf student, and some idiosyncrasies used to convey deaf communication translated extremely well to English written text. At some points it is as if you can hear what deaf people experience. You don't need to like manga to appreciate A Silent Voice, but you do need to read the books in order. You can expect romantic tension and strong emotional connections with the characters. The story concerns a protagonist who made some poor decisions as a child (what child doesn't make poor decisions?) that had repercussions, even if he doesn't fully realize their weight.
If you decide to give it a shot, you'll be glad you checked it out, and sad when it's over. If you love manga, or if you've never read manga; if you love emotional moments in movies, or if you want to begin to understand the emotional side of yourself; if you've been bullied, or if you've been the bully: this manga series is for you.

This book is excellent at what it does. The characters grow, and the situations are totally believable. I did find that Naoka's character seemed a little forced as an antagonist, and much of the first half of the book is focused on her. I think the book is a little constrained by the tankōbon format, as A Silent Voice is meant to be read as it comes out in magazine form, and not book-by-book. I definitely liked this book better than A Silent Voice, Vol. 3. I wasn't sure if I'd keep reading, but now I definitely will. ****1/2
> Bought whole manga set just because
> Collect and support artist
Alright, let's be honest. I don't buy much manga, never. Hell, all I need to do is go online and read it. But this manga is so beautiful. It's a bout a girl who can't hear and the main character is a bully. He bullied her through out her childhood, to the point her family forced her to change school. But then the boy regrets it everyday because after she changed school, he realized how stupid he was. And the story goes on as the main mc keep looking for the girl everyday. You guys should read it because my summarize is f&*(king terrible.
10/10. It's so amazing that I WANTED TO BUY THE SET OF MANGA JUST TO SUPPORT THE ARTIST!

All the books are amazing. Even moreso if you want to cry your eyes out.
