[Review] Koe No Katachi 聲の形

 koe no katachi

 Koe No Katachi 聲の形, a Silent Voice (translated in Italy as "the Shape of the Voice"), an adolescent cross-section that explores the psychological relationships of a couple of boys within society and school. Love, inequalities due to the main protagonist's handicap, jealousies, misunderstandings and that innate "malice" of children which will have dramatic peaks.

Gate: jieitai kano chi nite, kaku tatakaeri" ゲート 自衛隊 彼の地にて、斯く戦えり

gate jieitai kano chi nite kaku tatakaeri anime 1


Gate: jieitai kano chi nite, kaku tatakaeri ゲート自衛隊彼の地にて、斯く戦えり ( translatable to Gate: in that land, the self-defense forces fight like this) is taken from the light novels by Takumi Yanai and illustrated by Daisuke Izuka. Which saw in 2011 was followed by a manga transposition and followed by this Anime series.

The plot is very particular and blends fantasy series with modern characters, but with an intent (sometimes not too veiled) of "propaganda" linked to Japan's self-defense forces.
