The good folks from Anime Limited (aka All The Anime) have just revealed the details for the UK and Ireland wide screenings of A Silent Voice. They've already said that the film will be screened around the UK and Ireland on Wednesday 15th March 2017 and select cinemas on Friday 17th March 2017.
Depending on demand there is a chance that their could be more screenings, but Anime Limited "... strongly encourage you to watch this the first chance you have as it might be your only opportunity to do so." We definitely agree with them. This is not a film you'd want to miss and it's best experienced on a big cinema screen. As always we strongly advise booking tickets for this film early to avoid disappointment.
We've seen this film and can confirm it's an emotional roller coaster. It'll play with your emotions. It's got everything good anime should have, an engaging story, it's well animated and it doesn't pull the heart strings, it yanks at them, then it makes you laugh with just the right amount of comic relief at the right time. You should watch this gem of a title on the big screen while you have the chance.
The showings will be in Japanese with English subtitles only, as no English dub exists yet.
Details as follows:

Synopsis: “A heart-wrenching romantic anime drama, A Silent Voice follows a youngster named Shoko. After moving to a new school, Shoko is taunted because of her hearing impairment, principally by Shouya, who leads the class in teasing her. When Shoko is eventually forced to transfer to another school, Shouya’s classmates in turn ostracise him for his cruel behaviour.
Years later, as a young adult, Shouya is riddled with guilt over his humiliation of Shoko. Living an aimless life with no friends, he determines to find her and try to atone. But is it too late, and what might her reaction be?”

F.A.Q. ABOUT ‘A SILENT VOICE’ SCREENINGS IN THE UK ON 15TH MARCH
~ What language will the film be screened in?
In Japanese with English subtitles only. There is currently no English language dub, which is why there are only screenings in Japanese with subtitles.
~ I don’t see a screening listed in my area? Will there be one added?
We’re working closely with our partners to have screenings available in as many locations as possible, however we should stress that ultimately the locations it will be screened in are chosen by the cinemas themselves and not us (Anime Limited / AllTheAnime). So if it is not being listed in your area we encourage to make your cinema aware that you’d really like to see it.
~ How long will it be in cinemas for?
At this stage it’s very difficult to tell. This will depend on the demand to see the film based on how well it performs on 15th March and the select cinemas on 17th March. So if your on the fence about going thinking it might be shown later, we can’t promise that. We strongly encourage you to watch this the first chance you have as it might be your only opportunity to do so.
~ Which cinema chains will be showing the film?
Showcase Cinemas, Picture House, ODEON, VUE, Cineworld and other independent locations in UK & Ireland will be screening the film in various locations.
