    Oh, Shoya. What is it with redeeming assholes that appeal to me, I don't know. But awww, the cuteness.

    No matter how repetitive I thought it was, how unrealistic some parts appear, how unbelievably forgiving Shoko is, I'm in love with the message of this series.

    The main message that surrounds this series and in particular this volume is miscommunication . It works brilliantly for this manga series because Shoko is deaf and there are moments where Shoya shows his vulnerable side and she did not understand what he was saying and when asked to reiterate what he said Shoya either avoids the topic or changes them. The scars of the past are still visible and for Shoya his guilt is a burden that constrain him.

    In this volume we finally get Shoya communicating to Shoko and she accepts his apology and wants to be friends with him. Shoya is relieved and is shocked that she wants to be friends with him. Their relationship regardless of the pain that he caused to Shoko it unique and not considered your typical friendship. I believe Shoko has always been in love with Shoya whereas Shoya is oblivious of his emotions until provoked and finally makes the connection. I cannot put my finger on it but there is a major shift in tone between Shoya and Shoko.

    Shoya wants to become a better person for Shoko and wishes to fix all the rights from his mistakes. When Shoko mother sees Shoya again she makes it a point to tell them that he can never fixed the pain and damage he caused Shoko and it is absolutely true. With that encounter and statement it starts to haunt Shoya and that is the major revelation which is he suffers low self-esteem from his guilt and when something bad happens to him he accepts the consequences and believes he deserves it which is not true. Yes, he was a bully when he was younger but by acknowledging and trying to make a change for the better it shows that he wants to grow as a person and no one deserves to suffer because of one awful mistake.

    I am loving this manga series and I highly recommend everyone to read it!! It surprises me how each volume teaches the reader lessons on the consequences of being a bully and how the past can easily creep up on us. The more that Shoya connects to Shoko the past seems to unveil itself and while up to now Shoko has been good about it in many ways it is ripping Shoya apart and causing him to question everything about himself and his relationship to Shoko. I am definitely curious where this series is heading because just when I think the plot is heading in this particular path Yoshitoki Ooima twists it and show new layers in both plot and character development.

    Happier with Shoya’s actions and behaviour in this one and dare I say that I’m looking forward to picking up volume 3...

    Wow. After reading the first volume, I enjoyed the story but couldn't quite see how it needed six more books to finish. It seemed like everything was set to wrap up in one or two more books. Now that I've read the second book, I see: this is an author who knows how to create great characters and continually expand and deepen the scope of the narrative. The story has now become a powerful portrayal of guilt and forgiveness. It's really amazing.

    The second book picks up where the first left off, and in addition to Shoya and Shoko, we get to know Shoko's little sister (or boyfriend!), revisiting some of the previous events through her eyes. The mothers are still in the story, and I assume that the perspective will shift to their experience at some point in the series.

    I love the way we see Shoya changing and struggling. His pathway to redemption is not at all straightforward or easy, and it feels very real. I feel like I'm being granted access to the interior character of the kind of person I might never know that well in real life. I love watching what he's going through in his self-doubt, his desire to figure out the right thing to do, and his growing understanding of what friendship means.

    I absolutely can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    The second volume about a deaf girl, Shoya, who had been bullied for her deafness in elementary school. Somewhat predictably, the bully, Shoku, five years later wants to apologize. And learns some sign language. Other complicating dimensions are mother and sister interactions. This is a strong and relatively recent manga series, worth checking out.
