Kyoto Animation’s official YouTube channel has started streaming a brand new PV for their upcoming new anime film, A Silent Voice, which adapts Yoshitoki Ooima’s tear jerker manga of the same title. The video introduces us to the film’s characters.

The trailer also features the song,  “Ai wo Shita no wa” by AIKO, which serves as the film’s theme song. The cast of the anime movie comprises of:

Miyu Irino as Shouya Ishida (older)

Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the manga’s story:

I wish we had never met. I wish we could meet once again. A boy who can hear, Shoya Ishida, and a transfer student who can’t, Shoko Nishimiya. One fateful day, the two meet, and Shoya leads the class in bullying Shoko. But before long, the class shifts its target from Shoko to Shoya. Years later, Shoya feels strongly that he must see Shoko once again.

The anime is set to premiere in Japan on 17 September 2016.
