"Koe no Katachi is dangerous because it is exploitative. I'm not going to pretend to know anything about deaf people. I don't."

Another room temp IQ trying to larp as a smart individual by having a contrarian opinion while having the worst review about something you have 0 experience of/can sympathize with.

I think calling Koe no Katachi dangerous is unfair. Your review highlights that Nishimiya is reduced to a one dimensional character and that essentially this is offensive to those with disabilities. I think this interpretation completely misses the point of the movie. The movie is meant to focus on bullying and its effects. To that end I believe it was effective. There is nothing romantic about bullying. It can eat at you. It can become the only thing you think about. It can become something that you obsess about and something that reduces you to an empty shell. I think this is the case with nishimiya. Being bullied from a young age prevented her from experiencing a lot of things and finding passions she could have had. Trying to highlight positives or romanticize that oh she has this hobby or this passion is not effective considering it's a movie and has limited time to work with. (The manga does delve deeper into her and her passions but I think the movie was effective in it's mission of conveying how degenerative a f'ed up bullying can be to the victim). I think the end of the movie shows that Nishimiya has finally found a safe space where she can explore herself and grow more. I really don't think you realize how hard this can be when you've been bullied and made to feel like your not wanted your whole life. The movie is not trying to point out the obvious that disabilities do not define a person. Anyone with an ounce of humanity already knows that; only someone who is still wrestling with that idea would come to that interpretation. The point of the show is that victims of bullying are told that there disabilities define them and this inhibits there ability to grow and find themselves and their passions. And yes this means it takes them longer to discover themselves and find a safe place (I think this is what happens with Nishimiya at the end of the movie), but that's exactly the point.

Keep in mind that labeling Nishimiya as a injured puppy and remarking that she is pitied is completely your own reaction to the events. The Nishimiya I watched was someone who tried extremely hard to overcome her circumstances, and struggled a lot while doing so. I don't pity her. I celebrate her and her effort. I cherish her kindness. She always put others first. It hurts that she is often taken advantage of because of this. You can ignore reality but at the end of the day people are bullied and excluded due to their disabilities. Victims of bullying can feel helpless and feel like they have no redeeming qualities; they can feel that they are empty shells. There is nothing romantic about being deaf. It f'ing sucks. You can try to debate that but it's reality. A deaf person can live every day of their life wishing they could hear fully. Wishing they could experience the things everyone else takes for granted. That's simply reality. But Nishimiya kept making an effort to speak to others and get along with them. She tried so hard. She tries her best to overcome her circumstances. When you pity her you are deciding that her effort is meaningless and that she should just give up. The movie could depict the rose colored life of a person who is deaf and bullied for it their entire life but that simply doesn't reflect reality and would be fairly meaningless. People can struggle there entire lives and never feel accepted. And yes it's f'ed up. It's completely wrong and I wish there could be more positivity, but that's simply not how things currently are. Life is hard but it's about doing your best and being happy with what you have. THE MOVIE DISPLAYS NISHIMIYA ACCOMPLISHING THIS YOU JUST DIDNT WATCH VERY CAREFULLY.

My apologies that this review isn't written very eloquently. I'm struggle with experiencing my emotions to the extend that I feel them. That said, I hope you can consider the things I said.
