After reading this 3 times, I decided to update this review a bit.

Before I start, if you're wanting to know more from watching the anime, I'll tell you this: the anime has done what the novel hasn't and vice versa. Basically, reading the novel won't guarantee what you want to know.

Even though my expectations were very high before I read this, it still managed to surprise me in every single chapter (not necessarily in a good way). This novel has the power to play with your emotions to such extent that you end up thinking about what you read for weeks, let alone days. The read more

Not a single review? Well, I'll be the first.

TL:DR for no one who wants to read the full thing. Story 8, Character 10, Enjoyment 10. Not much art to really judge but seems standard but not relevant. Overall 9. Maybe a 10 after a re-read. Sorry if it seems all-over the place. I'm kinda terrible at reviews.

Having heard it was the first light novel that had actually won Kyoani’s Grand Prize, I had very high hopes for Violet Evergarden. It is a two part novel consisting of short stories about a young woman traveling from one place to another assisting people with different things.

When you read through the first 5 chapters, which are basically short stories, you will notice that the author describes Violet - the main character in a way that makes her feel like a Mary Sue character. She is unrealistically strong, smart and fucking great looking. In fact she is so beautiful that the author can’t stop read more

Warning: This review may or may not contain spoilers but I will try to conceal any spoilers as much as I can.

1. Characters:

As characters aside from Violet herself changed each chapter, I would like to describe them as major characters that helped Violet in her adventure throughout her lifetime. The reason I have such thought are due to them being the main focus of the story in each chapter instead of Violet and they are being developed more than her. Violet, in the other hand, mostly serve as a person who helped connect between those who love and those who are being loved. As all read more
