[I realize that you can do reviews here, so I will be copy-and-pasting the review I gave before here!]



 I can't help but notice the lack of discussion on the anime "Violet Evergarden"! Listen, this anime is so great and heartwarming (as well as breaking) that it kept me watching it! It only took me around days in total to watch the series [ + special ] and the movie altogether! In total, it was a really good and well made story. I have a lot to talk about with this collection!


╰┈➤ The Plot: [10/10]

I know that sometimes when people put "ten out of ten" they are usually exaggerating, but I honestly had no problems with the plot! The aventures and pains that Violet had to face had me grabbed completely and it was very understandable. The show took topics that are really personal for some really well and I respect it for that! I was able to keep up with the plot, and thats very important 
for me! Of course, I am not going to say anything that has happened, due to spoilers, but trust me on this; this anime's plot is amazing.


╰┈➤ The Characters and Their Development: [8/10]

Oh my gosh yessssss! Violet is queen, prove me wrong. Violet (along with other characters) show such amazing improvement in this anime. You can see her grow as a person, moving on from the past and looking forward to the distant future. Even the smaller characters show development! Of course, I prefer some characters over others, but they are all still really good! They have okay designs (not my style, but they still fit the era!) and have beautiful personalities.

╰┈➤ The Music [7/10]

The Music was so fitting of the situation, and were very beautiful! I wish there were more diversity though!


╰┈➤ The Art: [10/10]

The art is the first thing that grabs my attention in animes, and let me tell you, it sure kept me hooked. From the magnificent backgrounds to the facial expressions that the characters made, it was a work of art. I don't recall me ever thinking that something looked "off".


╰┈➤ Overall: [10/10] 

I loved this anime, and I hope you do too! Go ahead and leave a reply on your opinions on this anime as well!!

At first glance, Violet Evergarden seems like an anime muddling between themes and uncertain about its course of direction. It's easy to get sidetracked by the extraordinary visual work of Kyoto Animation. Their salaried employees prove that the extra leeway yields great quality and indeed, Violet Evergarden is stunning! Touching on emotional conveyances with detail in anatomy and atmosphere. It almost eclipses the bizarre account of a weaponized fourteen year old, running rampant alongside hardened soldiers with a military career older than our titular protagonist. There's something very detached about the element of intimacy surrounding Violet's journey early on. The entire premise appears based on a confession of romantic advancement from a character with a questionable age gap. Which often betrays the tone of self-discovery and identity—when your central character isn't even old enough to comprehend this perspective tossed at her . Unfortunately, this anime uses its adolescent star to scrutinize exploitative evils, while never fully allowing her to contrast them with simple naivety of youth. Her character felt confined to narrative directives and trapped between two separate shows entirely.

However, as the story progresses, there's an insight of experiencing empathy in such a unique medium. What feels like conflicting projects that are out of place from one another, begin to unfold as Violet's integration into society. Her struggles to view life as a cohesive, familiar routine. There's also variety in its subject matter. Where "I love you" relies on the context of its meaning. From lovers, to family or friends. Violet's lack of closure over the phrase didn't seem so superficial anymore. Perhaps their spoken conditions were even misunderstood? In this, the anime is more ambiguous than other related material. Allowing fresh assessments that aren't simply a means to an end for any hopeless romantics out there. Seriously, you guys are worth more than x loves y by any means necessary

In fact, the origins of the Auto Memories Doll service is an impressive examination of hardships and beautifully motivated achievements. I found myself thrust into this system of recognizing real, problematic issues that weren't painted on for an entertaining exhibition. For a character that everyone assumes is tone-deaf to feelings, swells in anxiety as our lead Doll discovers the reality and priority of contentment from unnecessary wants. 

Violet Evergarden attaches people and places to its former soldier of the Leidenschaftlich army. Noting that everyone and anyone not only has a story to tell but also the myriad of ways others can relate to them. Whether by familiarity or the compassion to share an understanding. What I love about this show is that it teaches how sympathy, consideration and humanity aren't lost or excluded from anyone. Nor learning/re-learning the means of articulation as such an alien, uncommon process. Each character had some form of inner obstacle that required meditation or receptiveness to advice. 

This anime is definitely more than sophisticated artistry. There's history in its lore and social comparability. This show doesn't need to be knee-deep in nonsensical self-importance to actually have substance in its simplicity of human nature. I love that.

What do you think about a mannequin wanting to understand love?

Let's take aside my biased rate for a moment and dive into this miraculous world. It's great graphics and story telling are certainly out of the ordinary. High Budget = High Quality

All of my expectations have been fully satisfied. The story takes place in the early 20th century. Precisely in the aftermath of a war where the main character has been a part of. Unfortunately, the anime ended with a cliffhanger. What happened to the Major was what I asked myself throughout the whole series. Don't google it if you don't want to be spoiled.

Violet Evergarden is a bunch of unique stories from people who Violet meets during her journey as an Auto Memories Doll.

I can't say for sure if I liked the anime or not. It's more of like an "okay" anime well at least in my humble opinion. It didn't really leave an impression on me and I find it hard to empathize with the main character although the plot is new and refreshing and steps away from most animes. Common favorite genres like Romance, Comedy and even Drama is present in the anime. The setting of the anime is also good a somewhat after-war medieval age, the characters are okay and the animation is just amazing. As always, the essence of Mono No Aware is present and a sort of cliffhanger is to be expected at the end of the anime, spoilers alert! But so far, as a whole package, I find it hard to digest maybe because it's just not my cup of tea.
