As a "slice of life" anime it has its merits. The episodic stories are nice to follow and the visuals are gorgeous.

Having said that, my TV isn't entirely happy with the excessive color filtering. I only seem to see the anime through milky glass with brightness that seems to be 120%.

The problem with the anime is that it all sounds disconnected with the "letter of the week" setting. It reminds me of CSI which has a very very loose progression but it's the weekly case that's important. And Violet is quite an enigma, well I just resign myself that i'm not really going to learn much about her.

And I think the alternative world setting is irrelevant. Wondering everytime what that war was about, what the countries are (even showing a map), it doesn't seem to matter to the story, just name dropping.

To sum up: I doubt this anime will be remembered for decades to come, so yeah it doesn't live up to the hype.

Sorry I couldn't sum up how I feel about a show in short enough sentences so kids like you who are allergic to reading and have the attention span of a goldfish can understand.

I strongly disagree that the alternate history is irrelevant to the show. The thing is, it seems like most of the complaints directed at the show seem to be based on VE not being plot heavy or action oriented, neither of which Violet Evergarden is particularly interested in. Besides, how does knowing what the "war is about" inform us about any of the characters? it doesn't. The war is just a useful bit of world building that explains the fractured state of Violet. The actual show is less about discovering what happened to Violet or detailing what her missions were or what the actual fighting was about and more about what happens when a (literal) human weapon doesn't have a cause or mission to fight for. The actual reasonings behind the war is beside the point.

I think the issue is is that war and violence are such oft-used story lines in anime that when once completely sidesteps it completely, it catches people off guard.


Also: I find overrated to be such an empty term. Because it's less about taking a show on its own terms and more about judging it based on the reaction of others. Sure, it's a balancing act: I was turned onto Violet Evergarden because I saw the critical reaction for the series was so high, but I also went into VE not immediately expecting some masterpiece, and I think that helped. I'm enjoying the visuals, its leisurely pacing, and the characters. For right now, that's enough for me.

If your only response to someone trying to express how he feels about a show is "dude what the fuck" while reducing everything he's written to "word vomit" then yes, I believe we're at that point already.

I don't see a point being civil to someone who doesn't even bother trying to be polite.

Well, I call it a word vomit because it kind of is--an essay length post about a whole lotta nothing. Sure, I could go in there and go into detail why I think you're wrong--but meh. Don't really want to.

Then I was right? We ARE at that point already. You think I'm stupid for express my opinion in such way and I think you're stupid for belittling other's argument and not even bothering to counter with your own. I could be the bigger man and just ignore you but meh. Weekend.

Nothing bad of course. You are just asking why this had a very high score. You are not alone.

Wow. This whole thread is "fake news"! You guys need to learn how to overrate shows like I do. Hopefully this remains at 8 or better in my book so I can keep the smiles rolling all the way through March with all my other overrated shows!

Believe me it will. The score is dropping at a slower and slower speed by now. No matter how much people diss this, it will come to a point where they can only repost their diss to maintain the hate.

I didn't even notice the mean score and member count until your mention. I suppose that's how invisible most of the MAL stats are to my eyes nowadays. Still, pretty cool to see!

And btw, for all those "hating" on this show and not watching (or hating on) Yuru Camp then you've got some work to do! I'm overrating the heck out of that beautiful anime as well. That, Evergarden, Ameagari, and especially Sangatsu have me putting my hands together pretty often nowadays for Japan. The anime this season are on-point! Really allows me to savor all these awesome candies, pastries, cookies, ice creams, and other treats I indulge in while watching episodes...

please don't argue with him , 0IQ-people like him are the ones who give 10 to VE (8 for VE is too much) and 1 to FMA (yea i remember he said don't compare them .....)
PS: he wishes he could give a 20 instead of 10

I'd say that is overrated, mostly because of the lack of progress of any sort. It's pretty much a series of short stories at this point (ep 6), with no development of plot and the protagonist herself, Violet. None. One could watch episode 1 and 2, skip and watch episode 6, and notice basically nothing different. So much wasted potential with the stellar animation, but with it using a series of unrelated short stories, there's nothing to keep you around really. The short stories themselves are okay, but could be so much better, and could also actually develop the plot and Violet more.

You're not trolling, but a lot of people definitely are. You just don't seem to acknowledge that there are two sides to the coin here, and think that fanboys are the only issue.

I fail to understand why you're so sensitive to criticism about an anime. People can discuss whatever they want. But in the end, they're non-consequential. No matter how much people say they like or hate an anime, it will have no impact on the amount of enjoyment other people will have when watching said anime. No sane person is going to read through thousand of forum posts to validate their love/hatred.
