It's going to be a movie?! Aaaa :( I'm a bit disappointed. I'm so looking forward to this, thinking it would be a series. Oh well..

If they adapt the 1 shot then the bullying to shouko and shouya will be drag out, man, thats gonna suck...

Just finished this manga today. My hype died since I really was hyped for that anime anouncement on the last page, but I guess a movie isn't that bad :I

Ah damnit... I just saw that this is going to be a movie instead of a TV series. I'm a bit disappointed but I can at least see the entire work in one sitting! I don't think that they can adapt all 62 chapters in one movie but, honestly, the last quarter to third of the manga was significantly weaker than what came before (you know, after Shouko attempted "it"). I wouldn't mind them following the manga to around that point or so and going for an original ending. I'm still hyped for this though.

Damn! I was hoping for TVA D:

Oh well.... :|

Wowww I am super freakin' keen for this

((I doubt they will, but wouldn't it be great if they hired someone who actually has a hearing impediment for Nishimiya's character?! ))

Hopefully it turns out okay...

So awesome can't wait!

I'm cautiously excited. I enjoyed the one shot, but had no desire to read the series.

Hear that sound? That's the sound of my hype crashing.

62 chapters is quite a lot. I have mixed feelings about this being a movie.

I think this kinda sucks. I think the one-shot doesn't have enough material for a full movie and the entire series is obviously way too long for a movie. What are they gonna do?

Well, i wanted a full TV adaptation but i think a movie will be good too..

Sounds pretty interesting. I'll probably watch it.

62 chapters, idk man...
It's either gonna adapt the one shot or the entire series. I can't see it being great with the length, for either options.

I'll hope for the one shot option.

Not to sure how I feel about this... Hoping it turns out good but it has to be at least 2 hours if they're going to adapt the 62 chapters.

Agree. I could only imagine a boring TV adaptation. I'm glad it's a movie.
