Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright explore the themes of depression, the need for social connections, and more from the anime film A Silent Voice. They talk about the impacts of bullying, healing relationships, and finding forgiveness for ourselves and others.

Note: Apologies for the subtitles. We know they're missing the last letters of some lines - we tried everything we could to fix it, but alas... the universe was apparently working against us.

Today is one of those days, I found a gem on TRshow in a long, long time. I really like the concept of your Channel. Movies and TV-Shows can be so much more than entertainment and this is something people often miss. I'm shure I will start binging your Videos on the next few days. And if you again will watch and react to something out of the Anime-World, may I recommend you a few things? "Words Bubble Up like Soda Pop" (Movie), "Your Lie in April" (Show) and most importantly "Violett Evergarden" (Show) But anyway I am excited to see more of your reactions and analysis. See you in your next video :)

Fuck me, this is me. I was a bully in 5th grade, was bullied in turn when I stopped bullying and then I actually switched schools for academic reasons and because of that and now, more than a decade later I still make amends. Not to the specific people, because I bullied indiscriminately...but to all my current and future connections. They just think I'm being somehow altruistic, but I need to somehow get the guilt out, and when I am doing something nice...I feel whole.

😑 I can't take tragedies. Life is already full of them. Why should I feel bad by watching? I don't understand the heart wrenching entertainment. Doesn't it feel masochistic?

The last scene makes me cry everytime. I don't relate alot to do with the meaning but it had a different meaning for me just to be accepted by people for being so different with my Autism I just felt like seeing him accept love from others made me feel like when I feel accepted I feel the way he did in that moment.

This film is a masterpiece. One thing that you guys touched on but didn't fully talk about is the way Japanese culture views "being an inconvenience." The worst thing possible is to inconvenience other people or become a burden on them, which is a huge struggle for Nishimiya because of her disability. Just by existing she is "inconveniencing" everyone as they have to adapt to her.

Seeing humanity in everyone, especially in those who hurt or have hurted you, is one of the most difficult things to do. Forgiving may seem easy, but true forgiveness is hard to achieve. Speaking from personal experience, I have been a victim of bullying many times from many different people, and I cannot picture myself hanging out with those people nor anything of the sort. I feel sick to my stomach just imagining seeing those people ever again. I know that it is unhealthy and I am trying to go on with my life while leaving and accepting my past, even so, there's too many emotions bottled up inside for me to be able to truly forgive them...rage, disgust, frustation, sorrow, hatred, too many things to describe and many answers left without an answer. I wish I could have a conversation with them to understand why them did those kind of things to me, that still haunt me every single day. Every single day I'm affected and reminded of their words and actions even if I don't realize it. I just wish I knew why they did it... Forgiving is hard, forgetting is impossible and healing the wounds they gave me is even harder. Many years have passed since it all happened and I still remeber it vividly, although I bet they don't even remember my face anymore... For anyone who's reading this, wow, I'm impressed you're still reading it, but thank you if you did. To finish this looong vent, I just want you to know and remember. Words have an incredible power, beyond what you can imagine, they can heal and help, but they can also hurt and destroy someone. So please, be careful with what you say to others. Don't say things you know can hurt someone. We all have problems, we all deal with our own demons, no one has a perfect life, even if it seems like they do. All of us want to feel loved, feel like we belong, but it doesn't have nor should be through the cost of others hapiness. Be kind to the ones you know and don't know, treat others how you want to be treated.

As much as I love this film, I also hate it because there is not a single bit of mental health treatment in it. They get treated for their injuries but at the end of the film, they somehow pull themselves by their own bootstraps on the mental department. And it is not that the author of the film forgets to put it in it, it is the reality in Japan and many countries, where you seek mental help and doctors just tell you "Be Happy". It is really sad.

You never see ishida’s sisters face. You see everyone involved in his life and then everyone except his sister. It’s just something that’s always stuck out to me. But yeah this movie made me sob pretty hard it hits really deep in a painful but good way that I don’t think I’ve ever experienced I’ve seen hundreds of anime but this movie was easily the most impactful one.

*What is the Gospel?* The true gospel is the good news that God saves sinners. Man is by nature sinful and separated from God with no hope of remedying that situation. But God, by His power, provided the means of man’s redemption in the death, burial, and resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of GOD, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Romans 10:9 9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. JESUS CHRIST can come anytime! Just Believe ❤️ Love you and GOD BLESS

That line “Things would be better if I were gone.” That hits hard and it hits true. Looking from the outside it’s completely not the case. But the people who wrote this dialogue have obviously been there or at least worked closely with someone who has. I had no idea that this film existed and I wish I would’ve known about it earlier. It would have opened my eyes to a lot of things a whole lot earlier in life. Thank you guys for what you do. Also, that’s an adorable Malti-poo. I normally listen and not watch so this is the first time I’ve seen them.

One of my favorite details in this movie is how Ishida sometimes don't hear what people are saying, instead he hear his inner demons and what he think they are talking about. There is some girls talking and giggling among themselves but all he see is them laughing at him and thinking he is a lone loser. I connect with that, it hits me like a truck.

Of all I hate kawaii ( blonde hair girl ) I hate her character always acting as a victim yet gaslighting everything ... It all started with her big mouth girl who only think of herself and thinks she is not at all to b blamed or more like the lesser at fault ... Shitty people like her exist in real ... As a victim....... Of all I can forgive all but not someone like her who puts the blame on others .... And not accepting the fact that she herself is a bully too ..

it is sadder to think that real world isn't like this, someone who hurt you will never own it. you got no one to support you tbh i do and always wanted to die. my emotion has long derive and the only thing that kept me running is "what happens if my parents sees my dead body how are they gonna feel" but then i also started thinking "what happens if my parents died before me what else can keep me going do i really still want to keep living?"
