Violet Evergarden (2018) anime review

90618At the end of the four year long Great War, the continent of Telesis begins to slowly flourish once again. One of the soldiers who fought in the war is Violet Evergarden, a young girl who was raised for the sole purpose of being a powerful weapon. Losing both her arms and ending up in a hospital near the wars end, all she is left with of the person she cares about the most are words that she does not understand. As she starts recovering from her wounds and learning how to live a normal life she becomes an Auto Memory Doll at CH Postal Services, a job that’ll lead her on a journey of self discovery both for herself and those around her.

Screenshot (92)This is a relatable story with beautiful visuals and interesting dynamic characters. Since this looks like a series that focuses mainly on Violet you may be annoyed to see that the majority of this series is made up of one shot stories where Violet goes to write letters for people. These stories focus heavily on her clients. The thing is without these smaller plots being placed where they are in the series, Violet Evergarden as a whole would not be as good. These stories actually relate a lot to Violet and focus mainly on loss and healing.

Screenshot (93)I recommend you watch this series if you haven’t already. The one thing that separates this series from so many others is the way it handles the themes of loss, grief, love, and healing. If you want to watch Violet Evergarden you can find it on CrunchyRoll.

Final Rating – 50/50
