*I wrote this review a while ago and decided to finally update it to MAL*

Violet Evergarden is a story of love and of lost, how do you cope with losing the person whose life filled your own. the playwright who mourns his daughter, the soldier who never came home, the little girl who lost her beloved mother but at the heart of it all though is the girl who wants to know the meaning of the words the major said to her "i love you" the girl named Violet Evergarden.

She can be described as someone with a slightly different sensibility to that of the normal person. it’s not that she doesn’t have these feelings it’s because she was in a environment where she didn’t learn these lessons in humanity. she possesses these emotions she just doesn’t know how to express them or understand the feelings of others yet but through the people she meets she finds how to improve herself and begins to go through these complex, heavy emotions but the pain she experiences throughout the anime results in her growing as a person and it’s truly beautiful to watch.

"I know we said goodbye, but I didn't know. It was forever." - Violet Evergarden

Violet Evergarden will always hold a very special place in my heart. no anime has truly touched me so deeply and made me cry so many tears but tears of joy, despair, empathy and so much more that this anime expresses. I got so emotionally attached to Violet and her pain in the search of understanding and accepting her feelings and things that can’t be undone/forgotten. Violet Evergarden in my opinion is a truly emotional masterpiece and I am eternally grateful to experience it.

She brings hope and love to people.
She brings hope and love to herself.
