A SILENT VOICE is an animated Japanese drama in which a hearing-impaired girl starts at a new school.
There are scenes of emotional upset arising from various situations which include a character's hearing impairment, bullying and the exclusion of young characters from social circles. Some of this distress leads characters to suicide attempts which are either implied or presented in a stylised and sensitive way.
- Injury detail
There are occasional bloody images as a character dreams of seeing dead pigeon which transforms into a dead human figure, both with pools of blood under their heads. In another scene, a character falls from a building into an ornamental pond where some blood clouds the water.
There is also mild and very mild bad language ('pissed off', 'crap', 'Jeez', 'jerk', 'bummer', 'moron', 'damn') and mild suggestiveness in a passing reference to a 'love hotel'.
