The CH Postal Company has just received a request to transcribe a love letter from Irma Felice, a famous opera singer. Accepting the task, Violet Evergarden visits Irma to write her letter. However, not only does Irma provide little information, she asks Violet to write based on her own feelings. Despite Violet's numerous attempts, Irma finds every version of the letter inadequate.

Violet consults her colleagues, and they help her out by writing love letters of their own. Yet even those are rejected by the opera singer. As a last resort, Violet asks Irma for her true thoughts and feelings, hoping to find the missing puzzle piece. Will the Auto Memory Doll be able to translate Irma's emotions into words?

Before I start this review, I'll just tell you this: this is separate from the sequel movie announced by KyoAni. The movie is scheduled to be released in January 2020. Also, I wrote this review assuming you watched the 13 episode series first.

If you haven't please watch that first (though I doubt anyone would come here without watching the main series first). While doing so I'd recommend you to watch this between episodes 4 and 5 since that's when this is set.

Violet Evergarden Special is an unaired episode which is set between episodes 4 and 5 of the 13 episode series - between Iris' visit read more

Dear Violet Evergarden,

I have just now finished the 14th episode of your anime series, and have decided to review it in a letter format in this letter that I direct to you, to tribute the show. Unfortunately, I have come to regret this decision already at this point because it would seem that everyone and their mother had the same damn idea.

You have to excuse me, but I haven't written many letters in my life. In fact, the last time I "wrote" a letter was when I was 4 years-old. It was with the help of a girl next door who was 3 years read more

To put it simply. This is a much better ending than the original. I felt the action and how fast everything seemed just didn't fit the rest of the show. But thankfully with this, we got a much more natural and satisfying ending for such a great show.

The comedy actually seems to be a thing here. Not saying there wasn't any in the original 13 episodes. But It usually was dominated by a more melancholic atmosphere. Some funny scenes such as Violet looking confused at everyone in an audience clapping or walking and standing in a corner. I do wish we got more of this read more

"Can I put 'love' to words, when I don't know what 'love' is?"

The episode begins with a stirring operatic aria accompanied by an orchestra. At first I thought an actual opera singer was doing the vocals, but nope, it's TRUE. Dayum, that gal has pipes. Since her voice acting resume is probably nil, Yoko Hikasa voices the part of Irma, the singer.

This episode is an anime original, and is positioned between the first arc and the second, indicated by Violet's limited emotional expressions and her military report "letter". As a transitional episode between those 2 arcs, it's pretty good, and something I wish I'd seen read more
