Today, ABS-CBN aired the hit anime film ‘Your Name’ in it Filipino dub as part of its Holy Week schedule. For tomorrow, ABS-CBN is airing another anime movie, this time its the film ‘A Silent Voice’ (Koe no Katachi) by Kyoto Animation.
Much like Your Name, A Silent Voice will air in ABS-CBN with a Filipino dub at 8:00am. While a lot of anime fans (including myself) prefer watching anime with the original Japanese audio and English subtitles, showing a Filipino dub for A Silent Voice is a decision that we agree with. After all, having a Filipino dub will make the film more accessible to a lot of Pinoy viewers.
Not familiar with the film? A Silent Voice is was released back in 2016 and produced by Kyoto Animation. The film’ story is described as:
“Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as the teasing continues, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion. When they leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other again… until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. He wants to atone for his sins, but is it already too late…?”
