The Great War finally came to an end after four long years of conflict; fractured in two, the continent of Telesis slowly began to flourish once again. Caught up in the bloodshed was Violet Evergarden, a young girl raised for the sole purpose of decimating enemy lines. Hospitalized and maimed in a bloody skirmish during the War's final leg, she was left with only words from the person she held dearest, but with no understanding of their meaning.

Recovering from her wounds, Violet starts a new life working at CH Postal Services after a falling out with her new intended guardian family. There, she witnesses by pure chance the work of an "Auto Memory Doll," amanuenses that transcribe people's thoughts and feelings into words on paper. Moved by the notion, Violet begins work as an Auto Memory Doll, a trade that will take her on an adventure, one that will reshape the lives of her clients and hopefully lead to self-discovery.

These first few episodes have been hit or miss. While the premise of the show seems interesting, you realize soon enough that it's being bogged down by a bland, unrelatable main character and her sappy quest to know what love is. The idea of an emotionally stunned war veteran finding her place in a peacetime society, working at a job that requires interacting with clients on a personal level, learning to know herself as she learns and explores emotional experiences from others cold be really good. The issue is that it's been tackled poorly so far, and Violet is just not a very good character read more

Violet Evergarden, the anime that has been hyped for a year, has finally arrived with controversy and concern. Is it the masterpiece that’s deemed from most? Certainly not. That does not mean VE could not deliver. I’m not gonna try to defend the anime just cuz it’s KyoAni and it’s highly placed by many, but I will give credit where credit is due. So let’s get started.

There’s no doubt in my mind that VE is visually appealing and accompanied by a great OST. However, do the characters and plot live up to it? So far, it’s too early to say despite 4 episodes still out. read more

Story: 3
How do i [insert emotion here]? Each episode feels like a cheap attempt to elicit feels from the viewer. Something i found slightly aggravating is how uncaring the direction seems to handle Violet's actual story, it feels like the flashbacks and infrequent outbursts of emotion are all that really exists to remind you that yes, She is actually the main character.

Art: 8 for character design 1 for for overall visual direction.
Not good for those suffering minor visual impairment. 10/10 Would suffer migraines again.

Sound: 8
After spending some time simply listening the music i can actually point this out as the shows strongest read more

"Violet Evergarden doesn't talk much, but she has the power to restore people."

This quote perfectly sums up Violet Evergarden and what the show is trying to get across. After reading the synopsis of the show I was intrigued to see just how they are going to portray this type of character. In my opinion, they've done it almost perfectly. Knowing nothing but war, pain and suffering. Showing us how she finds meaning in these new emotions and how she experiences them for the first time.

Starting off with the story. We follow the journey of a girl named Violet Evergarden. Who has been in the army read more
