yes both of them have a different plot and view. but they do have one similarity and that is how they tell us a heart warming story.
Violet Evergarden and Natsume Yuujinchou both follow abused and neglected protagonists, who find their place in a cast of colorful characters and learn to embrace the beauty of the world around them.
