JUST KISS ALREADY HOLY SHIT
What's wrong with her ear?
Why doesn't she wear glasses if she's deaf?
Because glasses aren't real since mirrors aren't real.
but how can mirrors be real if deafness isn't.
It is how the artist draws ears.
same reason you're posting here
7/10 made me laugh.
Google's first result, gets my point across.
No reason not to post that image.
I need sauce
If your eyes aren't real, how can you say glasses are?
>wants the D
I thought Shouko was pure.
Boogers no pickers
If you dont have it,lurk more or get out.
That would make it terrible.
The one-shot was okay since it was just that - a one-shot - but I never even bothered picking up serialization beyond a cursory check of the first few chapters since it, too, focuses on the dude rather than the girl who should have been the actual MC. Trying to set them up would just move it from my 'missed opportunity' category to 'complete shit'.
While you have some point on your post, I'd say though that it's more interesting to see how a boy deals with his past mistake, get regretful over it and be on the verge of suicide than watch a girl forget and pass off everything everyone has ever done to her.
The author can of course go that way anyway, anytime he wanted. A perspective shift every some chapter.
Need doujins of her and this pic related "kissing" her ear
Whatcha making son?
You blind, yo, there's clearly something wrong with her ear and it isn't the aid.
designing a proposed road
The no romance route is definitly an option, but it's hard to pull off decently without people losing interest (not everyone, but the majority of the japanese readers).
The romance route would be a great option, but it's hard to pull off realisticly and believable.
The MISUNDERSTANDINGS route is most likely, because japanese fucking cliches and interest.
Don't get me started on the NTR route, because that's my 'dropped' route.
Either way, there is implied romance and returned feelings, so reverting that to 'no romance' would be weird thing to do.
That's neato, stop browsing /a/ while doing assignments/work.
Well, it's not like there are signs of it ending soon. Ueno just got re-introduced too. There's the issue with his old buds too. Hopefully there's still lots of time to develop something if it iesn't enough yet, right now.
It's a group project done together, we share the work load. I was just checking my numbers again.
Yes, but to me, the starting shot has been fired.
From here on the author has to form which route to take while balancing it with the rest of the story.
Depending on how he or was it a she? does it, this manga will go from interesting to interesting and good, or from interesting to wasted potential.
They are both isolated teenagers starving for affection. They've been nice to each other. They're sufficiently attractive.
It would be unrealistic if at least one of them didn't fall in love.
Exactly, the problem is, how is the author going to evolve this romance?
I'm still waiting for the RAWs thread in while the kiss panel is shown. I want to see how /a/ would flip their shit.
Wow, ponytails are so hot
'seeing'? Doesn't that carry the connotation of dating in the English language?
Because there's no such connotation in the raw. This is FwPA release right?
i like her messy hair style better.
I do think she implied 'dating'
I can't stop thinking about yuzuru as a boy.
Yuzuru is a true tomboy.
I can't stop thinking about fucking Yuzuru regardless of genre. A penis just makes it better.
>Lusting for the shota dick
Only acceptable shota sexualization is shotaXchristmas cakes or shotaXonee-chan
>Being this normal
I bet you're a devout too.
Absolutely not, I just can't sexualize shotas without self inserting as the shota, and getting bumpbumped as a 8 year old doesn't appeal to me.
Are you guys learning sign language?
No because most deaf people aren't cute.
>Getting a deaf who can't speak normally.
That's a pretty shitty deaf girl.
Yeah, but isn't the bottom of her earlobe torn?
No, the only hearing aid she has is on her left ear.
It might be a scar from when he pulled her hearing device out.
She already kissed alot of boys
Well she could talk but then she would sound funny.
I want to see her putting her hand in his throat so she can feel how his voice is shaped. Kinda the analogue to a blind girl touching your face to know how you look.
Yes I was thinking that, but then wouldn't that be internal?
Maybe some other kid bit her ear when she changed schools.
Maybe he will come back too, having learned sign language, to apologize to her too. I can't believe Shouya is the only one that bullied her.
Maybe he tore a bit of her ear off when he janked her ear together with the hearing device.
This is all speculation though.
I think Ishida pulled the one that was connected inside destroying her eardrum and that's why she doesn't need the other hearing aid anymore, right?
nah fuck off
Here they come, the underaged edgelords who think that defiling something pure is hot shit. You should really get AIDS.
Another tripscum in my filters list
He reduced the cost of hearing aids to half.
What a bro.
Man, why did she even use the hearing aids if she still couldn't hear at all back then? They always had to write things down for her.
would you rather be completely blind or be able to see vague shapes through a sight aid?
>what is partial deafness
There's a difference between not hearing at all and hearing confused, indistinct sounds. The aids serve exactly to the purpose of making her able to detect direction, (heightened) volume, and tone of sounds.
That would depress ishida on a whole new level
mom might have to come back and burn his money again
That scene where he's bowing his head and promised to never attempt suicide again was really depressing, I don't think I could handle another one.
It's okay, Shouya started working again so he will buy her a new ear.
She most definitely did not.
>I heard from Kawai-chi that you seem have gotten in touch with Sahara too.
Thank God this wasn't FwPA. I was nervous for a second.
This isn't just a one shot. Thank you Lil B
But even with the aid she was completely deaf.
Do you think glasses would help a blind man?
How old are you?
I'm not sure how to feel about this.
Thanks I guess.
Please don't tell me she's getting bullied at her school.
If she's really was completely deaf how come she doesn't need glasses?
On the subject of bullied and sort of deaf girls, you guys should try this manga.
It doesn't have such an impact on the first couple of chapters because it leaves more of a "WTF is this about?" kind of feeling, but just keep reading.
Only 2 volumes.
>If she is really was completely deaf how come she doesn't need glasses
I swear to god sometimes the shit I read on /a/ gives me headaches.
>read on /a/ gives me headaches
Maybe you also need glasses.
There was never any indication she ever noticed the sound around her.
Yep, definitely not.
there's a page where it says "elationship." is it supposed to be that or "relationship?" it's like the second to last page.
Yes, she noticed because nobody else would stand up. Not because of the sound.
Dude, that would make him kill himself.
Maybey its some sort of pun
Because it's hinting at them eloping?
Gotta love that ponytail.
Gotta love that fucked up hand.
>Redraw? Fuck that. Let's just use the healing tool.
that's inside her peripheral vision. She noticed, visually. Not by sound.
Would you be satisfied if the comic never shows them kiss or anything but has a time skip where they are married with kids?
Are you saying shes like daredevil Cept with sight instead of sound?
Only if it was shown that their lives were endless suffering
I want them kissing while hand holding.
Anyone else disappointed that the introduction of Ueno isn't bringing enough suffering?
10/10 shop keep it up
Do you still hate me /a/?
Ok what if you get that but you have a timeskip where the end up getting married to different people?
How is this thread so much more alive than the older one?
nonoononononononono stop it.
Assuming you could only get
Which would you prefer?
SHALALALALA KISS THE GIRL YOU PIECE OF SHIT
Wait for her to despair when none of her tactics work, so she calls her friends.
LEAVE BROCCOLI ALONE
Well your apology was half-asssed. I mean it was clear from your body language that you actually were apologetic, embarrassed and a little ashamed about the whole thing, but you kinda held back the whole time and tried to play it cool. I guess maybe you didn't want to throw it all out there in case he said "fuck not forgiven", but still you should be more honest. I mean you can't even tell him how you feel, and your pretty much all tsun towards him. And that's weird since you seem to like people who keep it real (are honest) so maybe it's some self hate thing? Either way being honest is your only shot at winning this.
But No I don't still hate you, but I never did anyway.
And hey you're arguably cuter than Shouko
Just forgive me already
You're a faggot.
Stop with that bullshit, she had both here, the mother is even grabbing that one.
The fact that she doesn't understand that shouya wants to repent to nishimiya the same way she wants to repent to shouya makes her dense and unlikeable.
Also the fact that she can't shake off bullying.
And as we all know , bullying is not allowed on /a/.
would it be more like
Weeve, AH Dooooh Wan ah see yo faayce
Well... That proves she has both. Since Ueno pulls out the one from the opposite ear just last chapter. So either she randomly lost it in the last 2 weeks, or something happened in that time.
Or somehow the mom is dumb enough not to know which ear is fucked.
He did, kinda. Well it helped that you were the first person ever to apologize. I mean if you had done this 4 weeks ago you could be having sex now.
Also /a/ important question
Who's prettier Ueno or Shouko?
Fuck you for making me laugh.
>GEH GEH GEH GEH GEH
>or something happened in that time.
it probably just got fucked up when she dove into the water.
HOLY FUCK THIS CHAPTER!
MotY > Yuzuru > Ueno > Shouko > Sahara >>> Kawai
She couldn't know that from one meeting. All she knows is that he's acting friendly towards her. Plus she doesn't know about the desk thing. And I mean from an outside point of view it's a dude who's friends with someone he has nothing but a bullied past in common with.
As to the bullying
When she said those comments about Shouko she probably didn't mean them, she was just trying to connect with Shouya and hoped he would be angry at Shouko and they could build ground from there.
In the later chapter it's because she basically just got her heart broken, so of course she wants to mess Shouko up. I've seen a female friend yank someone's crutches away, that doesn't mean she is a bully (major overreaction but still).
Someone remind me the URL for the Stop Bullying comic generator. I have ideas.
Bitstrip and cartoon network. That's all I remember
I need a koe wallpaper.
Doe anyone have any? or is it still to early?
Whose says I'm okay with you.
You're a bitch.
Although you could be redeemed with an embarassing apology scene with full blush.
This man speaks truths
Flip Shouko and Ueno and you're good to go.
See you later /a/
I picked this up and fuck is shouya based on me? Im going to be so pissed if this gets a happy ending
Jesus, what's wrong with their faces?
That looks horrible.
There's this official one...
That face is a little off.
That nose style just doesn't work in colour.
Wow. It really doesn't.
I'm kinda hoping she never gets colour pages now.
You fucking stupid, son.
Look at her lobe. LOOK AT HER FUCKING LOBE.
Now look at pictures of lobe on the Internet.
Now look at how the artist draw the other characters's lobes.
Now look at her lobe again.
Constat your retardness.
When Nips gather taste.
Which is almost never.
Does anyone know if they may run into to a problem if they try to get an anime. Like their topics on bullying and how they treat the deaf kid. Seems a little to dark for TV.
I thought her lobe was attached to her head.
Some people have that.
Doubt anyone in japan would care.
outside of japan however.
Is that why yume miru will never get an animated adaptation?
There is no burrying in Nippon.
Burrying and getting bullied is dishonah to famalee.
You baka gaijin no understando grorious Nippon culture.
They don't make the reasons public but probably.
Sponsors really need to know what their sponsoring so they may not fund an anime.
I should also point out all my anime adpatation knowledge comes from bakuman.
I have detached logbe and it looks nothing like that.
It's torn, dude, TOOOORN.
Nah, Ueno is cuter than Shouko. And Ueno has more personality than Shouko so far.
>yfw Koe no Katachi anime will be rotoscoped
This one looks ok. Not sure where it's from though...
One more time if you please. what's wrong with her ear?
I'd rather have no anime then.
>And Ueno has more personality than Shouko so far.
Yeah, a pretty shitty one.
how about just a live action?
Eventually, I hope. At least the first volume sold decently
Then it had to have happened recently, sometime after he met her again going by >>100723065
Oh, looks like this is the digital extra for volume 2.
Take a wild guess.
Protip : look at the picture in OP's pic.
>And Ueno has more personality than Shouko so far
Being a bitch isn't a good personality trait.
I don't care for her suffering nor her broken goods.
She's a bitch, I'll allow her her chance for redemption, but saying her personality is better than shouko is plain dumb.
She doesn't know him anymore?
The song has the lyrics:
>But I don't know him anymore
And OP's pic has the bubble saying
>Want to know more about you
Is that it?
Now go to bed.
I need the what is this face trying to express face stat.
I want to know him more.
Shouko's definitely at a disadvantage. She cant just speak up like anyone else, and MC has kept conversations with her to the bare minimum of niceties. But, after what was said in this latest chapter, it seems that we'll be getting more insight into who she really is as the two actually bother with that whole "communication" thing thaqt folks like to do.
YO DUDE, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS LITTLE GIRL DOING HERE????
I MEAN DO YOU SEE THIS SHIT!??
ITS LIKE SOME FUCKEN INTANGIBLE ENTITY JUST CHILLIN THERE WHAT THE FUCK
Grove street for life yo.
It bothers me how Yuzuru is right now better friends with Shouya than Shouko is.
I just can see her thinking:
>Who put this fucking watermark here
Someone should try do a rotoscoped Nishimiya and Shouya.
>not wanting to see glorious karen in lossless gif quality.
Yeah, Yuzuru just seems to show up at Ishida's house whenever while Shouko only sees Shouya on Tuesdays. It doesn't seem as if Yuzuru's chatting with Shouya much though. She just plays with Maria / watch TV, etc.
That's because she's best girl.
I'm always reminded of that spic cunt down in Florida who did mistake deaf hand signs for gang signs and preceded to start stabbing.
Yuzuru x Broccoli when?
I think there's plenty of interaction and they get along very nice. Too bad she's going to give up on Shouya and hand him over to Shouko.
>Too bad she's going to give up on Shouya and hand him over to Shouko
You're not implying Yuzuru wanted to participate in the Souya bowl, are you?
Every Koe no Katachi thread.
She's clearly interested in him right now because she is a sis-con. It's not romantically though but I expect this shit to go down in the last volume.
He could in a way if he gives her a child that has a happy schoolife
You drew lines that don't even exist in the original picture, and it looks like the artist took care to draw some minute details regarding her ear.
Did you notice the jagged tissue at the bottom of her ear? It looks like someone grabbed her earings and tore the lobe off as a result.
Damn it, the public raw I downloaded didn't have the cover.
Being cunt doesn't mean having more personality, shitaster
Dude. She's grooming him to be better for Shouko.
Best brother all years long.
This manga has some of the most delicious moms.
I guess it's because this is her first manga, but it's kind of a mess most of the time. There are a lot of scene jumps and the conversations feel really weird sometimes. And no, I mean the actual conversations between characters, not the ones involving sign language, those are ok. Still, the whole premise is nice, so I hope it gets an anime, cause this story could use some better direction.
What compels people to put their screenscaps like this? So messy and obnoxious.
>the conversations feel really weird sometimes
Were you reading shit translations?
I kinda hope they would hire an actual deaf girl to voice Shouko's few lines.
Not everyone can cater to your autism.
How did he do this?
>Shouko sings the OP
Listen. Go to Nyaa. Look up katachi. The first 16 chaps were up last I looked from a guy that actually puts some effort into the translation.
That wouldn't give her her happy school life back, but would give her the happy mom life that he took away from her mom.
Actually, chapter 6-19 are out from competent group.
1-5 is still by incompetent group. But the one shot covers chapter 1-5 sort of.
By turning her life hell during those times, driving her to drop out of school and move to yet another school.
Give me one good reason as to why you would put it like the one I referred to - with responses everywhere and pointless inserts of the capper's oh so hilarious humour - instead of how it actually appeared, with posts in thier correct order and no frills attached.
If someone feels compelled to add shit around the screencap and put the posts all over the place, then it must have not been a funny post in the first place.
That would be the cutest thing ever.
Because if I wanted to see the actual thread I would look in the archive.
Why bother going through the archive when you have the image of the single, or few posts, which are funny? I personally have folders of screencaps I find interesting or funny, all collected and which I can browse all at once, instead of having to go through the archive for every single story.
Jesus, it's like she's tone deaf or something
It's not like its hard to see what Shouya is thinking. The guy has no poker face. Meeting Nishimiya got him out of a huge depressed funk which has apparently knocked him into a more a more animated state. With his whole reaction to Ueno who wasn't a close friend I'm really hoping he's got somebody close to him when he meets the two guys again.
Soon, there will be waifu wars.
What difference does this make.
I rest my case.
My fucking nutbladder.
Go look at the mothers face when Yuzu asks Shouya if Ueno was his girlfriend.
I want to see Broccoli fighting the fat one while Shouya fights the other guy.
Why are her faces so fucking good?
I don't know what that face means.
>No incessant nagging
Why hasn't society engineered women to be mute or deaf?
Attached earlobes look fucking disgusting
I just gave you a completely pertinent reason which you've not even responded to. You have no case to rest, except with the pointless answer of going all the way through the archive to find each individual post, rather than having all the posts you find funny in one sensible order in one folder.
I can only imagine that you're replying so vehemently because you're guilty of such stupid screencaps yourself. Back then, this is how you did it. If someone today had posted this, no doubt it would be arranged in a 'wacky' pattern with lots of posts scattered all over the image with stupid shit inserted into the cap.
And I meant waifu wars as in /a/ fighting over who the best girl is. Pic not related.
>little girl asks her son if he has a girlfriend
That or maybe she was thinking that's why he didn't kill himself. A quick "oh god what if they break up" moment.
I would drag my dick through the entire Sahara deserts if that means I can sniff her butthole.
The difference is arbitrary.
You don't have enough going on if it seriously bothers you.
I wanna see Yuzuru as the main competition to Shouko. Right now Yuzuru is the more interesting character imo.
That's one dry pussy.
This manga better have a happy ending
Why did he do this?
Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Not even going to
no. no. no No.
What the fuck..
Read the godamn manga, will you?
>Thought it was just a repost.
>mfw I noticed the differences.
>You don't have enough going on if it seriously bothers you.
It's not arbitrary. One makes sense, the other doesn't.
I'm gonna suggest something outrageous right now.
Both make sense. It's retarded to throw a fit over it
inb4 it's just a bluetooth headset
my fav manga right now
She was never actually deaf
Instant Junji Ito vibes
No, only one makes sense. Please explain why the one which isn't set out with only the minimum posts in a clear order without stupid images around it is equal to the one that is.
But he can give her the pleasure of being cummed inside.
Nah, I'm not gonna bother.
You will keep on believing your shit no matter what I say and it's a stupid fucking discussion.
I sure as hell hope it won't end like a Junji Ito manga
>You will keep on believing your shit no matter what I say
You haven't said anything yet except about the archive, which I've already clearly explained to you is a needless waste of time if you have clear, logical screencaps collected in one folder. Other than that, all you've done is be aggressive and call me an autist.
Next chapter she discovers Ishida suicide vibs
"I know that feel"
If happy mom life can be transferable why can't happy schoolife?
>I want to know more about you.
>You know I've recently try kill myself, but nothing else. What's about you?
>[screams internally] Not like she knows how is it works normally.
>I want to know more about you.
>Actually, pony tail turns me on.
I think it's progressing too fast with this last chapter.
I think the author is about to wrap it up because cancellation, Ueno appearing so soon was the first alarm.
What else can you really do though?
Plus the final straw would be his childhood bros coming back.
>I think the author is about to wrap it up because cancellation
Don't play with my emotions anon.
>Volume 1: 400,000 copies sold
The tankoubon is selling well so I'm sure that it won't be cancelled anytime.
What are you saying? The manga sales seem to be doing fine and the author said she has at least 10 volumes planned. If you think Ueno is the first alarm you have no imagination, there's a lot to be covered.
>the author said she has at least 10 volumes planned
Well fuck, that means we won't ever see any conclusion.
>at least 10 volumes planned
Be prepared for 5 volumes of MISUNDERSTANDINGS
She said between 6 and 10 volumes, so this could end in a few weeks, I hope that's not the case.
Ab aye kawahee ownee-shawn?
pwease half im treing too consjentraete
Wait she's deaf and crosseyed?
The deaf part made her kinda cute.
Crossed eyes really doesn't help her.
If this doesn't have a happy/healing ending, I'm gonna kill myself
>Nah, Ueno is cuter than Shouko.
She looks like a pig with a black wig. Even her personality is that of a pig.
>Not wanting a crossed eyed waifu
I bet you like girls with only one vagina.
It's true I'm in love with titty beast.
I'm so casual.
You might be onto something. In this page you can see the ear piece is only in her left ear. (judging by the hand she holds it.)
I already said that when Ueno told her she only had one earing aid.
WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT
I see you read it anon. Welcome to despair.
To think I was about to read it.
Thanks anon, I dodged a bullet there thanks to you.
don't fucking read that shit
>dodged a bullet
You fucking twat
Do it, faggot!
More like "Moe no Katachi", am I right?
I was using it as a figure of speech, I'm guessing someone gets shot in the manga?
Hell no, I'm not going for oyasumi punpun 2.0
>I'm guessing someone gets shot in the manga?
No, it's the constant and relevant imagery of bullets.
>oyasumi punpun 2.0
It's not, even if it Punpun was just two volumes, this wouldn't still be punpun 2.0. Except for the abysmal ending, Punpun had actually a perfectly good story.
There are many things that just don't sit right with this manga, but I actually didn't care while reading it because I kept on thinking it was because of lack of experience on the author's behalf.
Still, the imperfection and mistakes act quite as rage/despair fuel
You're the worst Metagross.
>I was using it as a figure of speech
So did the manga
Damn it, Moot!
I remember reading the one shot of this, which was depressing as hell.
Is the manga the same?
We just started volume 3.
Damn it, Moot!
It goes to see their life after they find each other and how he tries to redeem himself.
It has more healing, more rage, more bitches, more everything.
This also backfires since all this new content dilutes the original concentration of what the
If you're expecting the same experience of reading the one-shot prolonged to as much chapters as the author bowls out, you might be dissapoint.
If not, go ahead
To some degree the first few chapters are more depressing, but the story gets better as it moves on.
I'd definitly encourage you to read it
>the imperfection and mistakes act quite as rage/despair fuel
>I have no father
God fucking dammit, now I read that in a totally different way
Only in the beginning. Around chapter ten it starts to pick up. Then about chapter 20 it hits a depressing spot. Which leaves off at a VERY hopeful note at the end of chapter 22.
I don't even know why as I've never had any experience of that kind, and I don't even have an imouto, but I'm totally partial to those things.
I'm 99,99% sure that if I ever happened to witness such things or even as much as to get to know that some guy living near me was doing those things, I'd literally rip his throat out with my teeth
>mfw no abused little girl neighbor to white knight
No you don't get it. I don't want to whiteknight abused girls, I don't want them to get abused at all. The idea that these things exist drives me crazy
Well they do, whether you want it or no.
I never understood the first part there. Just the "even I'm doing my best" part.
My guess is the translators didn't either.
Even I'm trying my hardest
I know. But for some reason this thing in particular drives me literally berserk
Yeah. That's the second bubble. I wanna know the first.
Does anyone else wanna see Ishida get his ass kicked for Shouko to come over and try to give him first aid again, but this time he doesn't freak out and lets her?
I eureka'd it some time ago. But then I forgot it. Typical me
I don't have a gif mad enough for this. I'll just use a placeholder and let the blue hot burning rage devour my bowels
Why the hell did he apologize to Ueno?!
Because of this. He realized if Ueno was being sincere in her apology, his reply to her was crushing even if she is a bitch. Ueno's doing a good job of pretending she isn't really affected by his words, but she's dying inside.
As crappy as it was she made an effort to apologize. If Shouko could forgive him then he could forgive Ueno. However that still puts their relationship at stranger status and she could easily fuck up this second chance.
My hope is that their relationship will progress quickly and the meat of the story will be centered on reunions with their old classmates and the development of new friendships they make together
My pessimistic brain tells me there will be 7 volumes of circling and cockblocking assholes and at the end of volume ten we'll get a "I don't dislike him"
Why would Shouko forgive him if he can't forgive Ueno?
>needing 4 arms to say anything
sasuga the deaf
Chapter 11 pages two and three. She wants him. He wants her but doesn't realize it.
But Ueno gets in the way of his relationship with Shouko.
He wasn't mad for the past, he was mad for how she talked about Shouko, and she clearly isn't stopping.
Is the one shot canon?
It's the same story, what do you think?
Wait a minute...
Why does she wear a hearing aids if she still can't hear a damn thing?
She look clueless when peoples talk around her, so why even bother?
>what do you think?
I think that 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of the time, one shots are not canon, as the serialized manga retells the story in a slightly different way. But since one or two comments in this thread make it seem like the one shot IS canon, I'm asking for clarification.
But he is mad, didn't you see the huge X on her face?
That's the mark of people get when he hates them.
Why don't you read it? You'll notice yourself then, won't you?
Yes, he is mad. That's what I said.
Because the one shot is 62 pages, which is a long read. Furthermore, it may also be the case that the one shot spoils some of the manga, if they aren't necessarily meant to take place together.
In general, the point of one shots isn't to be a prologue or first chapter. The point of one shots are to provide a jist of what the manga is going to be about to an audience and editorial staff.
You're right, I need sleep.
Nonetheless, Ueno doesn't get in the way, her pathetic attempt at bullying was dealt with on the spot by shouya.
Yet Ueno wants to repent for her past actions, just like Souya is looking for redemption from Shouko, he can't deny her what he himself wants. Unless she does something horrible in the future.
In a way, i kinda feel bad for Ueno.
She just doing the exact same thing shouya trying to do with nishimiya.
Except he showed remorse, and she's still being a bitch.
If you want to repent, you show remorse. Not arrogance and contempt.
Bitch doesn't deserve forgiveness.
Then why do you even care?
Oh yeah, my God, 62 pages will kill you.
Those 25 minutes spent on reading you could waste with more mindless browsing of /a/.
It's part of human dignity, Shouya completely lost that part of himself when he tried to solve that sudoku and got all his jewgold burned.
He starts from nothing, and he knows it. Ueno likes to believe she isn't a zero just yet.
She just trying to give the middle school years that ishida lost when everybody being a dick at him.
Just like what ishida doing with nishimiya.
You're being needless stubborn about this. You have some attitude that anime and manga are a huge forest that everyone is suppose to explore for themselves, in order to be a man. But nothing can be further from the truth. All of us have things we've read and watched that have either caused us frustration or took away enjoyment that we could have otherwise had. For instance, if someone asks
>Hey guys, I'm about to start watching Nadia. Is there anything I should know?
no one on /a/ is going to reply
>Shut up and just watch it faggot.
In fact, most of the responses would be something like
>The Island and Africa Arc were directed by a different team. You can skip those or skim through those if you'd like.
Nobody is really a better person for "discovering" things like this for themselves. Most of us are more sullied because of the garbage we've subjected ourselves to and wish that other people didn't have to go through what we did.
No, Shouya wasn't an asshole when he first saw Shouko again. He even studied sign just to talk to her for christ's sake.
Not seeing Ueno doing any of that.
Dignity my ass. Apologizing sincerely means dropping your dignity.
See, that time to write all that shit, you would have been halfway through the one-shot.
What a bitch ass nigga.
I agree but I just don't understand what you're trying to do.
I already said it's the same story. That should've answered your question.
Just what point are you trying to make, and how is it even related to your question in the first place?
Think about it, if you were to apoligize to someone you viewed as inferior and you feel depressed as shit, you won't drop to your knees and bow as deeply as you can, you simply won't, your dignity is too strong for that, no matter how depressed you may think you are.
Shouya is an exception because he went to the very depths of depression, he literally hit rock bottom, but Ueno is hovering above it looking upwards, she doesn't want to believe she's at that point.
I'm not saying her behaviour is justifiable, but understandable, and therefor Souya accepting her apology is also understandable, especially if you factor in the hypocrisy if he didn't.
The one shot was never expected to become a full manga from what I understand. So its a pretty self contained story with a tease at where it could go.
The reason people talk about the one shot is that it just had more impact than the retelling in the manga, which feels somewhat drawn out. Its been a few months, but I'm pretty sure there was also some stuff that got changed in the manga in ways I didn't really care for.
>I already said it's the same story. That should've answered your question.
Thank you. That's all I wanted to know.
Right, but if the one shot wasn't canon, then it would have been more than just a waste of time. It would have ruined moments from the actual manga, since one shots are often summaries. The one shot might have some emotional climax that doesn't appear in the actual manga until several months in, for example.
>Because the one shot is 62 pages, which is a long read
To be fair, Ueno wasn't being a bitch too when they first met each other.
except to Broccoli boy but thats all just a misunderstanding
It was already stated that it's canon.
So what are we are arguing here about?
I wouldn't come into situations where this would happen in the first place, so I can't tell for certain, but if I felt sincerely remorseful I would show it. I wouldn't act all haughty towards the person I'm trying to apologize to.
I can not fathom any other option, and the way Ueno acts just disgusts me.
>Thank you. That's all I wanted to know.
I said this half an hour ago dude, what the hell?
>Ueno wasn't being a bitch too when they first met each other.
She was to Shouko.
In the nearly 30 minutes between this post and your initial post, you could have read the one shot at least 4 times over instead of complaining and asking us to spoonfeed it to you.
Shouko wasn't really on Ueno top priorities list when asking for forgiveness, and she wasn't really that close.
Ueno just want to it be like the old times when Ishida was happy with her and the gang.
Oh yeah, great reason to be a cunt.
If I saw people being nice to me but being cunts to my friends I'd tell them to fuck right off.
She just being tsundere
i still dont trust ueno. it seems like she's only saying whats convenient
I think it has to do with the fact that Shouko has given him a million and one chances to get to this point, even when he was still being a massive dick, and he wasn't even willing to give Ueno one chance.
>Hey, should be tell the new recruits where the minefield is, so they can avoid crossing it?
>Fuck no. Those casuals should figure it out for themselves, like we did. They'll be better men for it. No spoonfeeding.
that's a horrible analogy and you should hate yourself for it
She's leaning against the metal, and when he taps it she can feel a little of the vibrations running through it.
source: deaf brother
Yeah, because you'd suffer any form of harm when you read a one-shot.
Never seen something as off as your post.
Well, at last for today.
Why did she wear a hearing aids if she still can hear for shit?
Ain't that just a waste of money?
It's that little shimmer of hope you cling to, anon.
I see your point, but then again Shouya was a complete asshole as well.
Hoping for what? getting her other ears fucked up by young Ishida?
If she's wearing a hearing aid her deafness is a result of some kind of defect in her ear drums. They can still work with amplification, if only barely and with very loud or low noises. If the problem was in her nervous system, the hearing aids wouldn't do anything to help her.
Try to be a little sensitive at least.
It will help with something - different people can be deaf for different reasons.
For my brother, he wore hearing aids because although it didn't mean he could hear stuff, it helped with his own speech - my mum explained it as it helped his ears pick up the vibrations of his skull, so his speech developed fairly well, for not knowing what things sound like to copy.
For her, I dunno. Could be something like that, could be she can hear very loud sounds, I don't know.
Why do you care so much anyway, anon?
I just found it weird that you still can't hear anything even with the help of a hearing aids.
Then again, i don't know any deaf person.
Sorry if i sound insensitive about the subject.
I hope they get together soon. They both want it.
So you're expected to lose your virginity by middle school, uh what?
...He raped her didn't he?
Goddamnit. your anger only fuels my curiosity
What chapters are in volume 1 and 2?
Could also be, Shouya's to dense to notice. I think th mother noticed the crush.
The author actually said 10 max was her plan. Ideally 7-8. But she already has her minimum plan of 4 volumes.
It's one of the reasons I feel Ueno's important since she's the only old friend who won't feel rushed if this goes down in 4 volumes.
on chapter 6 right now. when does the rage begin? I'm just confused about where this will end up..
Probably should have just read the last chapter from the start instead of reading the whole thing if people warned you about it...
FUCK YOU I HATE YOU WHY ARE YOU SUCH A BULLY
What's the deal with the heels anyway?
>She was pretending to like him.
>Just so when she crushed his heart it would be all the sweeter.
>She watches him jump off the bridge.
>His crumpled body washes away with the torrent of the river.
>She pulls out the hearing aid.
>She could hear fine all along.
>Directed by M. Night Shamaramalamadingdong.
>As he drown in the river he a saw a glimpse of the hearing aid on her hand. A smirk appear on that angel-like face.
I'd be okay with that if they become true friends. Should Shouya become a sign language teacher?
Did this last page mean they want to be "real friends" or something deeper?
ok on chapter 11 now. and all i have to say is wtf
To this i mean
anyways Ueno a shit
She wasn't really. She only said those things about Shouko because she though Shouya hated her. How was she supposed to know they were friends or had interacted at all since 6th grade? She was just hoping to get him to start ragging on her too so that the atmosphere would lighten up.
She only bullied Shouko directly after she got her heart broken, and that was more "Bitch I love him too why do yo get him!" than her bullying Shouko. Hell she even ends up apologizing and running away to cry.
Hold on to your feelings son. This is going to be hairy. You might want to get a lot of bleach as sure as hell you're going to choke a bitch after this
What if Shouko becomes a UFC fighter?
MY FEELINGS WERE NOT HELD. FUCK FUCK FUCK
i was so angry before but now i'm just empty inside.
No need to do anything, no need to think of anything, no need to feel anything, the solution is simple:
Let's bury death and void in more death
Fuck you guys, the lollipop was worse than this stupid manga
You guys stop trying to make me read shitty manga, I don't want no lollipop suffering and your reactions aren't helping.
Then don't read it
It's shitty and it has a lot of holes, but it's strongly advised that individuals with previous criminal history don't read it lest triggering other manslaughters
just... just calm down and
check my 5
Just read the last chapter without reading anything else like I did, who the fuck wants to feel the feel that these faggots had to feel.
In short, it's a basic, common tragic story. It's adapted from a light novel so I'm gonna guess the holes and imperfections lie in the transposition to manga or just plain lack of experience.
What's for sure is that it works, as every tragedy involving children, even if common and ordinary.
This is what you should expect from it
I'd be ok with trap sahara.
>skipping to last chapter
Not a single person has said how the serialized version skims over parts that the one shot had so that it's not redundant. You should read both.
I was pretty sure this was the case, but I couldn't really remember it for certain since its been a while.
Could she get cochlear implants?
Isn't she a bit too old now? Also it cost a lot.
No...it would be better to get them AFTER your body is done growing. She could still hit a growth spurt. And yes they're expensive but Shouya got $17,000 working his ass off as a teenager. From my own experience working a full time job in high school for minimum wage he would have had to do that for two or three years. Granted I didn't save all my money. But I could easily see Shouya working his ass off to get her those.
Cochlear implants are usually for people who had developed the ability to comprehend speech before they went deaf. Teaching an adult how to use a sensation they have never experienced, and then asking them to learn how to use this new sensation to recognize meanings is even harder to do than teaching an adult a second language. So if she was born deaf, no, she probably wouldn't get implants.
She has hearing aids though, right?
That implies she has some ability to hear, otherwise what's the point of giving her hearing aids?
What the fuck man.....I hate you all
horie temo kanbatteu
Shitteiru? (I know?)
ore? She doesn't refer to herself as ore does she?
Ganbatteiru (working hard)
To be fair, even Shouya has no clue what she's talking about.
How cute for 2nd best girl
i thought she noticed because he tapped the railing and she felt the vibration from that side
So much stupid and misinformation in this thread.
Being blind doesn't mean no sight. At best, it could be very impaired sight. Same with being deaf. It doesn't mean no hearing, at best,t means very impaired hearing.
Hearing aids can enhance the deaf's hearing somewhat so for example, instead of not being to hear 90% of the frequencies, they now just can't hear 70% of it. Which as you may notice, still sucks and makes hearing normal conversation very difficult. E.g. you'd have to speak to them loudly, slowly, clearly, and facing them so they can read your lips for them to be able to maybe comprehend you.
And re: the retard not reading the one shot. It's fucking 64 pages different version of a great story. And IMO it has better art.
Re: Cochlear implant: This is from wikipedia:
>Post-lingually deaf adults, pre-lingually deaf children and post-lingually hard of hearing people (usually children) who have lost hearing due to diseases such as CMV and meningitis, form three distinct groups of potential users of cochlear implants with different needs and outcomes. Those who have lost their hearing as adults were the first group to find cochlear implants useful, in regaining some comprehension of speech and other sounds. The outcomes of individuals that have been deaf for a long period of time before implantation are sometimes astonishing, although more variable.
Tearing out the cochlear implant would be difficult because there's an anchor in the skull.
Wasn't Ishida scared of her in a way? The way she always smiled and tried to help him is the impression I got.
More from wikipedia.
This is probably the group Nishimiya belongs to:
Another group of customers are parents of children born deaf who want to ensure that their children grow up with good spoken language skills. The brain develops after birth and adapts its function to the sensory input; absence of this has functional consequences for the brain, and consequently congenitally deaf children who receive cochlear implants at a young age (less than 2 years) have better success with them than congenitally deaf children who first receive the implants at a later age, though the critical period for utilizing auditory information does not close completely until adolescence. One doctor has said "There is a time window during which they can get an implant and learn to speak. From the ages of two to four, that ability diminishes a little bit. And by age nine, there is zero chance that they will learn to speak properly. So it’s really important that they get recognized and evaluated early
Are people just pretending to be retarded or do they actually think it's torn?
Eh? Why would Ishida be scared of her? I didn't get that impression at all.
Ishida's just shy and awkward with her because she's strange.
She's a frail little girl who doesn't fight back.
Scared perhaps wasn't the best word. Unsettled may be better. The guy has no poker face. I wouldn't be surprised if she pretty much knew what he was thinking in most of their interactions. She kept wiping his desk clean when not doing it for one day probably would have helped turn everything around for both of them. She probably felt partly responsible for him being bullied and they was her way of helping him.
What I'm confused about is that she has hearing aids, yes?
I admittedly don't know much about the trials deaf people go through, but what's the point of hearing aids if you apparently can't hear at all? I mean, isn't the hearing aid supposed to aid your hearing so that you can hear?
Reread this part a few times:
>Same with being deaf. It doesn't mean no hearing, at best, it means very impaired hearing.
Stick ear plugs in your ears. You are no longer able to make out words, but you might still be able to hear beats of loud music or faintly hear the fire alarm.
Shouko isn't completely deaf, that is why she could use the hearing aid. Cochlear implants can be used/installed when they are young, and can be used by completely deaf people.
deafness isn't binary.
consider thinking of people with this disability as "hearing impaired" instead. Hearing aids augment whatever hearing they have left.
I totally missed the first part of your post, but I'll blame you in part since you didn't link to that post, and I didn't bother to read it because your image wasn't of a cat.
Right, this all makes sense to me, but why would her speaking be so fucked up when she had the potential from a young age to wear hearing aids and talk to people?
If this was directed at me, I never implied you couldn't be hard of hearing yet not deaf, my problem was that her poor speech indicates she's been in a completely deaf environment for most of her youth, when her parents should have put hearing aids on her to talk with her.
As well as teach her to use sign language.
>Right, this all makes sense to me, but why would her speaking be so fucked up when she had the potential from a young age to wear hearing aids and talk to people?
Hearing aid doesn't give you perfect hearing. The result of her efforts of trying to mimic crappy quality sound results in fucked up speech.
Because she can barely hear herself. The title of this is Shape of the Voice, right? Well voice has a shape. Deaf people can learn to speak properly when their hearing has progressed to a point where it cannot be relied upon by placing a hand on the throat of someone speaking, placing their other hand on their own throat, and mimicking what happens.
All a hearing aid does, or is supposed to do, is amplify a sound wave, what goes in goes out with a greater amplitude but with the same frequency.
If the hearing aid works, she would have been able to hear fine.
No. It doesn't work that way. I'm slowly going deaf myself and my cousin guy cochlear implants recently. Just trust me when I say that depending on exactly how your ear is messed up it just first work that way.
>A cat can hear sound at much higher frequency.
>A human puts on hearing aid, which amplifies those higher frequency sound.
>The human still cannot hear those high frequency sound.
>Hearing aid must've been broken.
Sound is a punch of oscillating air molecules impacting your ear drum, it's a sine function.
If she wore hearing aids as a child she could have functioned as well as anybody else could if they had things stuck in their ears, of course her parents should have still taught her sign language regardless in case she ever found herself in a circumstance without hearing aids or paper.
Haven't noticed her dads not around, she does know sign language, and the manga suggests hearing aids were a very recent thing for her and were quite expensive?
But, that's literally the entire point of a hearing aid, why would a hearing aid not do that? What would it do if not that?
>Implying that frequency and amplitude are the same thing
You might still get an annoying ringing noise, but that's why you have low and high pass filters to remove unwanted frequencies before amplifying the frequency.
What kind of health care system do they have in Japan? Is it the same as the American setup?
Holy shit, that's not how hearing works.
Is her eardrum malformed to the point that the range of frequencies she could hear is severely curtailed compared to that of normal hearing?
It works differently depending on the condition of the individuals ear. I have a degenerative condition that will take several years to make me fully deaf. A hearing aid for me would work very well for awhile. For someone who's ears are damaged to a certain degree it alleviates the situation but doesn't make it nonexistent by any means.
>...The eardrum is an airtight membrane, and when sound waves arrive there, they cause it to vibrate following the waveform of the sound.
>One's ear drums vibrating means one can hear.
Just for clarification in case you didn't know, a 'waveform' is something that can be described with a sine function.
for some reason when I look at the top left panel I get a feeling a car is going to hit her, being deaf and all.
The eardrum is supposed to be an airtight membrane, after striking the eardrum it's all signal processing from there.
And I seriously don't want to get into a debate with you about whether a tree falling in the woods still makes a noise if no one is around to hear it.
I don't get it, why is Xbox-tan in the manga? I'm only on volume 1
Yes, everything in the middle ear and inner ear aren't important at all as long as the eardrum works.
I fucking give up.
If deaf people can't hear then why don't they just use a cane?
What's being damaged with the disease out of curiosity?
Hope you live in a place with good health care regardless, losing your ability to hear would suck.
Why don't blind people just use hearing aid?
Holy shit dude, I never said that the signal processing wasn't important.
What you need to appreciate though that what we consider a 'sound' travels through our atmosphere, once it hits the ear drum that sound has completed its journey, it's up to your body from there.
And you're still standing by these statements?
>Sound is a punch of oscillating air molecules impacting your ear drum, it's a sine function.
>If she wore hearing aids as a child she could have functioned as well as anybody else could if they had things stuck in their ears, of course her parents should have still taught her sign language regardless in case she ever found herself in a circumstance without hearing aids or paper.
I though the line was asking if he was still a virgin
It's a degenerative condition. My hearing is slightly less than normal at my age of 24. Randomly I'll go partially deaf for one to two minutes and occasionally I get a ringing like an explosion went off next to me. If I deteriorate at the same rate as my cousin I'll be about 50 before I need cochlear implants.
Yes, but it was more of an insult than her asking if he's really a virgin. So... Translator-Fag decided to put curse words in......
Could've went with something like, "You're still a virgin loser?"
Hah, whoops, *bunch
I admittedly don't know much about the mechanism for deafness, if it curtails the range of frequencies you can hear like
suggests, then yeah, I'll admit that just amplifying the frequencies wouldn't help. However, depending on how complex the science is behind the hearing aids in this manga is, and whether or not it's just that the ear hears some frequencies better than others, you could figure out what range of frequencies the person can hear based on a fairly simple test.
Like, "We'll play this frequency on a level of 1-10, how well can you hear it?"
And then to make the low and high pass filters necessary to amplify those frequencies in the hearing aid's software.
But that would require time and effort of a professional, and some degree of technological sophistication.
Ah, that doesn't sound so bad then.

I mad because this whole thing just brought flashbacks how you can't put your trust on anyone
I'm late, but god damn it...
So where do you guys get these newest translated chapters, all i can find is up to 19
The translation that shows up there also generally gets dumped in the KnK threads here beforehand.
And i take it theres no dl option for this, meh.
Some good guy at saturday night (+4 GMT) translate here new chapters too
And his works is very good.
I like Sahara's outfit.
She's very pretty for a tomboy.
>teenagers shaking hands when they meet socially.
Man I ain't even mad. That was just bullshit.
Did you grow up in Turkmenistan where people spit before the other guy's feet as to greet each other?
It's the first time they met, of course you offer a handshake as some sort of starting point.
What's with her going between Metagross mode randomly?
Isn't it connected to the individual's POV?
I think it was her who spotted Ueno and then it switched to Ishida when she ran off, hence the X.
Really though I think it's because she's only like that from the MC's perspective
horie temo kanbatteu
I think she said
Fuck. Decent translations where.
>You will never feel the pleasure of being cum inside.
Wait, where was this from?
I don't know the contest, but the second bubble might be "kou mietemo ganbatteru"?
"I know it might not look like it, but I'm trying really hard!"
That sounds better though, since the "so" is a lot shorter than it should be for "kou".
I have no context though, so I can't be sure.
Also, if anyone wants to help with cleaning, I could always use help. That's what's keeping us back the furthest.
20 and 21 should be out soon (tm)
Oh yes, and Volume 3's on sale 3/17.
It looks like it'll cover the Sahara arc through Ueno showing up.
Volume 2 covers Chapters 6-14.
I don't remember that scene.
Which chapter is it from?
from the fourth or fiveth.
It's a scene of fight between Shouka and Shouya.
Ah, was it when they had that fight?
And I mean the physical one.
I want to fill her with my essence.
>I admittedly don't know much about the mechanism for deafness
Why the fuck did you get into an argument about how hearing aids should work then you giant asshole? Here's a good rule of thumb: next time something doesn't make sense to you, assume that it's because you don't understand it properly.
The one where Shouko and Ishida fight and then Shouko transfers. Chapter 5 I think?
Wouldn't that make the volume really short?
That's like what 15-20? That's 5 chapters. Unless I'm miscounting.
It was a purity check on her Husbando but she had to play it off like an insult, look at her blush.
I've had this pressure bubble in my left ear for like a week.
I can't seem to get rid of it.
Am I gonna be a kawaii deaf girl soon?
I'd bully you if you won't feel yourself kawaii enough.

KnK volume 1 sold 30k in three days, volume 2 60k.
To promote the manga?
Yeah, could happen.
Hopefully. I have both volumes on order right now. Is there a way for me to get the oneshot though?
Be careful what you wish for anon.
I don't watch anime. But if it can bring more people to read KnK then I am happy with it.
Couldn't find it anywhere, so I guess no.
I hope it gets popular enough the author goes for the 10 volume max, and not the 7 optimal.
Isn't it a little strange that she wants to 'know more about' the guy that bullied her? Doesn't she have other people in her life?
Did you read the manga?
i think the pace of the story is good as it is so i hope the story won't get stretched if it gets 10 volumes
Yeah, but still.
If volume 3 is up to Ueno then wouldn't that mean that we're already at 40-50% of the story?
I don't want it to end just this year. I want a bit more.
She did say 4 Volume minimum so I'm hoping she has arcs that she wasn't 100% sure about that she can still add in.
yeah this looks like it might end in 50 chapters. If the volumes average 7, and the author is really sure about the 7ish volumes thing.
Hopefull this gets to 70 chapters or a little more.
I remember the first timid threads when the first chapters of Koe no Katachi were dumped.
