Well, i feel somewhat realistic about this chapter. For me, I can become best friend with someone only when we can both cast aside the hate for some part of others personalities. But we still need to consider each other anyway.

Pinche shouya :c

KOE NO KATACHI 58 RAW AND COMPLETE TRANSLATION

Beautiful ENDING of the Chapter

http://raw.senmanga.com/Koe_no_Katachi/58

http://manga.senmanga.com/koe-no-katachi-58-spoiler

Movie Didn't Win The Prize but Everyone is happy : HEALING

Er, more or less, but I think you're making it sound like a psychopath who behaves like that consciously to manipulate others and can't stop herself from doing it, as if it were an addiction. While she did used her reputation to reflect Ishida's accusations and feel better about herself, which was awful and manipulative, I don't think she truly realises her attitude comes off as snobbish.

 

Of course, being the top student has some benefits, such as being recognized by your classmates and by adults, having a good reputation, an ego boost, etc., but I don't think she wants to get these things to be able to manipulate people. To me, she cares about studies and meeting the standards of the perfect student more than forming actual, close relationships with people, because that's the "good thing to do" according to adults and society. That's kind of sad. She is like a robot, following the path others want her to follow, and deluding herself to avoid seeing how empty her life is. That's what I think anyways, I could be totally wrong and she could do it on purpose to get away with whatever she wants. :D

 

I haven't read Toradora, so I don't know who those characters are, but I think I get what you wanted to say. However, I don't totally agree. Sure, putting just a "nice girl" front and worrying only about appearences and manners without really caring about others will alienate you (just as Kawai alienated herself.) But frequently being disrespectful and aggresive, as Ueno, will keep people away from you, too. You can still be straightforward and/or honest without belittling others. I think a balance between the two would be the best. (I brought Ueno up only as a comparison, I don't mean to start a whole Ueno-Kawai war in the comments section again). 

 

Yeah maybe I was a little negative, and I might've worded it wrong since English isn't my mother tongue -.-

But the bold texts coincide exactly with what I'm thinking. I meant it's closer to she doesn't realize or can't stop herself, not because she consciously knows she can always use it to raise her own standing (bad wording on my end, sorry). It still seems to me like she thinks it's a "good thing to do" if she can point a likely culprit to be punished (not because she knows it's to manipulate them and worsen Shouya's rep). Like in one situation where she put the blame on Shouya even though he did nothing wrong (don't remember exactly, but I'm sure it happened in their high school, in class) just because she knew Shouya has a bad rep, though I'm sure she herself didn't know who did it.

I don't really need her to be like Ueno or anything extreme, just stop blaming everything on people who has a bad rep. Like, if you know it happened but you don't actually know who did it, putting the blame on people like Shouya definitely isn't the right thing to do.

 

I could be wrong, though, really. Sorry if I come off as a really negative person...

Partially... yes, maybe. But I do think it's an attitude that, by common sense (I mean she should know it too), is negative. If you said it like that it feels more like her "goody two shoes snitch" has become a habit since she can always get away with it... like a repeat offender who can't stop herself from behaving that way. Do correct me if I'm wrong since I've already forgotten the details on her background.

 

I don't know if this is the correct example of not since I kind of forget the details on Kawai, but anyway, she's pretty much like Kawashima Ami of Toradora when she was first introduced (being a "nice girl" in front of their crush, for one), and I do think we need a character like Taiga who's completely honest and never sugar-coat what she honestly thinks about people like Ami, and instead just SLAP it really hard in their face.

 

Anyway, I think it's katachi. I don't know much about Japanese kanji but according to small research I did on the net, 形 isn't read as "kitachi", but "katachi", and it means shape or form.

I think it's too soon yet to say if the change is permanent or not and how it'll affect them - the intention is there, sure, but that's not enough. Even if they do change, I think it'll only be partially. They won't stop being themselves. So Kawai will still be a goody two shoes as you said and Ueno will still be a mix of tsundere and yandere. :D There's a quote from Alice in Wonderland that says "you have to run as fast as you can to stay in the same place" or something like that, and that's what I think it'll happen to them. I don't know if I'm explaining myself. :S

 

By the way, on the front page the title appears as "katachi", but on the forums it appears as "kitachi". Which one is correct?

Hm yeah about Kawai I don't know...

 

As much as it was shown how she "might be" trying to change... still seems like the old goody two shoes snitch for me... Her attitude just irks me for whatever reason. Don't know if any of you guys feel the same...

 

I can accept Ueno, she's one of those people that can't stand those who's not honest with their own feelings, getting angry and pissed off about it is just the way she deals with it, but she's moving on.

Yeah, I think so too. :D

 

It seems Shouya's life is now on the right track, but I'm not counting on all of them staying together as a group unless Ueno, Sahara and Kawai resolve their differences.

It was not very clean or nice reunion. It was rather messy. With all the problems between each other ( Ueno vs. everybody, Kawai-san's victimization. etc)  and the way the public sees him, nothing is relatively well. But it looks like MC is facing them. 

 

Shouya! you are growing ;_;

Pinche Shouya :,C

Well you read his flashbacks right? Makes sense that he might have gone through the similar feelings.

(...)

Yeah, I think so too. :D

Me hice un maratón y después de un par de horas ya estoy al día.. maldición ;_; alguien dígame esto es semanal o mensual?

Sale cada semana amigo, todos los miércoles :D

Back to the story, I'm really curious how everyone will react, specially Mashiba. He didn't turn completely around when Ishida was heard, unlike the others. I have the feeling he wasn't completely acting when they shoot the film.

Well you read his flashbacks right? Makes sense that he might have gone through the similar feelings.

 

Anyway, good series. Read through all 56 chapters in like 2-3 hours... had to go find another source (not crunchyroll, I'll give you 3 guesses, as much as it pains me to go there)...

So much feels. Shed tears, too. I take back my previous comment about putting Ueno in her place, I understand her case now...

 

At first my cousin told me that all the characters other than Shouko and Shouya are bitches, so I thought they're bitches because the author wrote for the sake of them just being bitches (who knows, you might stumble to that kind of shit every once in a while, right), and wondered why there's an "award winning" tag if it's like that, but it wasn't the case at all. I'm glad it really wasn't.

I read Spanish translations and there's two groups uploading them here on batoto. The one made by Café con Lenin had the meaning written under the pannels, despite it wasn't originally specified in the raws. I translated it into English, it's under the spoiler.

I hope it's understandable at least. ^^

KOE NO KATACHI 56 RAW AND TRANSLATION

http://raw.senmanga.com/Koe_no_Katachi/56

http://manga.senmanga.com/koe-no-katachi-56-spoiler

Does anybody know what is Nishimiya saying to Shouya with her hands in chapter 54?

 

Edit: ok nevermind, i hadn't read the other version yet

 

What other version?  I still don't know what she said to Shouya.

lol

 

It's hilarious you're saying that Japan should have been wiped out during WWII because of a manga.

 

Hilarious and sad. Very sad.

No, not "because of a manga". It represents the actual social situation there.

But according to their logic, we need to wipe most of the Azia which is clearly bullshit.

chpter 56 spoiler everyone . Cute Shouko Chan

 

and a bit of blushing and romance

 

https://www.facebook.com/SenManga.Raw/posts/302605729927492

Welcome to passive-aggression: the manga, within these pages you will:

 

-Find a myriad examples of how an unhealthy mindset has become a national personality trait.

-Learn how a passive-aggresive environment can enable and bolster actual aggression.

-Learn ways to bullshit yourself into believing your bulliying was both justified and a form of self-victimization, the more outlandish and ridiculous your thought processes the better.

-Realize that the manly and proper way to deal with fathering a disabled child is to abandon him or her, cut all ties with their family and blame everything on the mother.

-Find out that the best way to deal with disabled people is not by supporting them, thus helping them overcome their disability and helping the personal growth of all parties involved but actually putting a spoke in their wheels so that they fall down because everybody knows that, that which does not kill you makes you stronger and if it doesn't it's not your fault that they were pansies.

-Learn that the best way to deal with personal insecurities is by denial of said insecurities and being an obnoxious loudmouth.

-See how bullying can create creepy psycho-stalkers capable of holding a grudge for decades.

-Find about how disabled people hate themselves for being dead weights on everybody else and how they blame themselves for things they have no fault or control over whatsoever, and how a disability means you will never amount to anything because everybody knows disabled people are no good at all, ever.

-Find a very solid argument to why they shouldn't have stopped after Nagasaki.

 

Seriously: WTF JAPAN?!

 

lol

 

It's hilarious you're saying that Japan should have been wiped out during WWII because of a manga.
