I like the feeling of this episode so much. It was really great to see Violet again and i like how she grew up to overcome the next step as an Auto Memory Doll.
Very good special after all!

Although Violet struggled writing a modern letter everyone could relate to, which isn't easy to begin with, she nailed it perfectly.

This episode occurs between the fourth and fifth episode btw, which makes it even more amazing that Violet still managed to pull it off without a lot of experience.

Beautiful episode

Beautiful lyrics by Violet, I hope they will bring Hugo though. Sometimes they should do a follow through with the guest characters and their story.

I know Ardo said to Violet someday he hopes she will know what love is, but subconsciously she does know what love is. But the right answer is the hope she will realize those feelings.

This episode was really wonderful and very touching. At the first minutes i began to think that it was a waste of time but.. That twist. I really enjoyed it.

Thank you Kyoto Animation
Thank you Violet!

I'll be 27 years old when the movie will be released so i'll wait with patience.

I actually found this better being a stand alone then I did with the series being strung with a plot.

Seemed kinda weird that Irma didn't even mention that the letter was being used for lyrics in a song. Communication is definitely not her strong suit.

Was nice seeing Violet learning more about the meaning of love after seeing those letters.

The performance at the end was great; definitely the highlight of the episode.

It was alright. Not the best episode for sure, but it had its moments. 6.5/10

I thought this was going to expand on what was the reason for the cliffhanger of the last episode of the parent series, but I guess not, probably they are saving that for the upcoming movie.

I don't know if there were some bigger hints on this in the parent series, I did catch up on that in the last episode, but this just confirms it way more.
Erica is having a cute crush on Benedict it seems, you know yours truly ships it.

That old postman is like the Santa Clause of that world, he occasionally drops some hints around Violet and helps her solves a lot of problems indirectly. Pretty solid episode.

Not a sequel in the form of a 30 mins OVA, but it's still an amazing OVA!

As always it's focused on the character development of Violet by writing letters of love from someone to someone, only that this time, the letter will be a lyric for a song in an opera. In the end, it's a heartwarming and touching song that will reach those that have been affected by the war. On the other side, the animations and visual quality are of course top notch!

Very good OVA, I wanted to know more about Violet's past interactions with the Major and the current condition of the Major, but I guess that'll be what the movie is for.

This ova is set in the middle of the season I think . Where Violet is still trying to learn the meaning of love

This really should have aired. It explained the airshow letters later in the series and Violets growing love awareness. Great OVA but it would have been better if viewed in order.

Not a bad episode but I ultimately didn't like the fact that it was set to the middle of the series, disregarding subsequent Violet developement. Also, the song while being touchingly sunged with great voice had somehow disappointing and rather average lyrics. My anticipation was higher as it was constantly promoted throughout whole episode yet the result was far from being something capable to resonate with the crowd. Yes, that scene with abondoned post warehouse was great but all that sentiment simply wasn't translated well into those lyrics. And no, merely saying ''this is it, this is perfect'' by another character doesn't create those words alone awesome.

I liked the episode so it's a shame the ending song didn't quite work well (again, the melody and voice itself was awesome). So much for overhyping their actual ability to write something meaningful and touching in the end.
