Both have an amazing, emotional, slice of life storyline backed by phenomenal scores, and the animation for them is among the best I've ever seen. Both are examples of a love it or hate it anime, but if you enjoyed one, I'm almost positive you will also enjoy the other.
Both pile on heavy with the melodrama and you know it but you still cry.
Thematically they may not be similar but the feels are strong with both.
Beautiful and heart breaking drama, learning feelings and accepting the death of a loved one

Literally a torrent of emotions ... For those who like it, these are must-watch. For others, I recommend also if only for drawing and animation. And such beautiful soundtrack can only help...
Hei! I've been thinking to recommend you emotionally drama here, Please don't miss Violet Evergarden because it will be shaking your heart a little bit. you will drown in your emotional in this anime. overall it will good to see, and you will have no regret.
It is just as heart-warming and pure as 'Violet Evergarden'. It carries a similar theme of love although Violet Evergarden is tend to set differently in an older era and much more beautiful themes.
Both are extremely touching shows and have beautiful visuials and sound
Both anime are sad in a sense, where it talks about loss of a loved one and how the protag soon overcomes the grief and trauma of the same loved one by having friends to support them.
the drama of these animes are so well crafted and well done that they deserved the oscar. If you don't get emotional with these stories, you don't have a heart haha. in Violet Evergarden, each episode you will have a unique experience, in shigatsu, the story is being built little by little, to give you an excellent plot in the end
Both are Heartfelt and deep TearJerkers that Leave You Deeply Moved By The End.
Both sad and tragic love stories.
