Violet Evergarden, Mahoutsukai no Yome Recommendations
-Both show themes of learning about emotions, and coming to understand feelings.
-Both can make you smile, both can make you cry
-Both have an interesting world
-Though this one applies more to Violet Evergarden in my opinion, but both have breathtaking animation
-Both have great music
-Both have an episodic storyline
Both are episodic dramatic stories about a girl who has had traumatic experiences in the past and builds emotional connections and more confidence in herself as the show continues. A very emotional vibe to each episode, and a Slice of Life vibe. Both series are very pretty to look at but lack substance or good writing or pacing.
Both lead charters had really hard past and having a hard time dealing with emotion and generally connect with people and world around them.
