It’s been five years since Shoya Ishida bullied Shoko Nishimiya so badly she left their elementary school, because of one simple difference between them: Shoya can hear, and Shoko can’t. In the intervening time, Shoya’s life has changed completely. Shunned by his friends, Shoya’s longed for the chance to make up for his cruelty. When it finally comes, will he find the voice to tell Shoko he’s changed? And will Shoko listen?” -Goodreads


First off, I must complain that manga volumes are entirely too short! Just as your deep into the story, you have to wait until the next volume. While this one is a lot more dramatic than most manga I read, I am enjoying the seriousness of the series. It seems to be teaching valuable lessons in forgiveness and apologizing. While I am not a fan of the male protagonist’s hair, Ishida is turning out to be  good human being. I also like the two new characters introduced in this volume, they are lessening the seriousness of the series, with some much-needed humor.
