Summary
  • Volume 1: "Shoya is a bully. When Shoko, a girl who can't hear, enters his elementary school class, she becomes their favorite target, and Shoya and his friends goad each other into devising new tortures for her. But the children's cruelty goes too far. Shoko is forced to leave the school, and Shoya ends up shouldering all the blame. Six years later, the two meet again. Can Shoya make up for his past mistakes, or is it too late?"--Publisher's description
  • Volume 2: "It's been five years since Shoya Ishida bullied Shoko Nishimiya so badly she left their elementary school, because of one simple difference between them: Shoya can hear, and Shoko can't. In the intervening time, Shoya's life has changed completely. Shunned by his friends, Shoya's longed for the chance to make up for his cruelty. When it finally comes, will he find the voice to tell Shoko he's changed? And will Shoko listen?"--Publisher's description
  • Volume 3: "Shoya's decided to do everything he can to make up for how terribly he treated Shoko, his former classmate who can't hear. But more than the challenge of learning to communicate, it means facing a past he thought he'd left behind forever. Now a reunion with old friends will transform Shoya, and his relationship with Shoko."--Publisher's description
  • Volume 4: "Once upon a time, Shoya was terribly cruel to Shoko, his elementary school classmate who couldn't hear. To make up for his past sins, Shoya has devoted himself to repaying the debt of happiness he owes. So when Shoko faces a romantic setback, Shoya assembles some familiar faces from their past for a trip to the amusement park that may just change things for Shoya, too."--Publisher's description
  • Volume 5: "Despite their tense pasts, Shoya begins to embrace the friend group that used to terrorize Shoko because she couldn't hear. Now that summer vacation is in full swing, the crew can work together to film Tomohiro's eccentric movie. Each fun-filled day lazily passes by, but doubt tugs at Shoya's heavy heart and he is desperate to cling on to meaningful moments before they are gone ..."--Publisher's description
  • Volume 6: "Time stands still for both Shoya and Shoko. Triggered by past traumas, Shoya coldly attacked his friends and burnt the bridges he first set out to rebuild. Shoko feels a deep responsibility for this disaster and attempts to pay for it by taking her own life. Meanwhile, each of their friends finally show their true colors. After everything has fallen apart, how will they mend their hearts and put the pieces back together?"--Publisher's description
  • Volume 7: "Shoya's life hangs by a thread after he jumped just in time to save Shoko. Despite the despair, Shoko is determined to move forward and get back what she thinks she has ruined ... But broken friendships can heal, too. Quietly, but surely, the disbanded crew finds their spirit--the show must go on! As the movie-making reconvenes, the kids begin to transform the world that had once been so cruel to them. What could the future hold for everyone?"--Publisher's description
