What is it?

The 2018 Japanese anime (animated) television show Violet Evergarden.

What is it about?

This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime television show:

The Great War finally came to an end after four long years of conflict; fractured in two, the continent of Telesis slowly began to flourish once again.

Caught up in the bloodshed was Violet Evergarden, a young girl raised for the sole purpose of decimating enemy lines.

Hospitalized and maimed in a bloody skirmish during the War’s final leg, she was left with only words from the person she held dearest, but with no understanding of their meaning.

Recovering from her wounds, Violet starts a new life working at CH Postal Services after a falling out with her new intended guardian family.

There, she witnesses by pure chance the work of an “Auto Memory Doll,” amanuenses that transcribe people’s thoughts and feelings into words on paper.

Moved by the notion, Violet begins work as an Auto Memory Doll, a trade that will take her on an adventure, one that will reshape the lives of her clients and hopefully lead to self-discovery.

My Thoughts

This show has some of the most beautiful animation that I have seen.

Episode 7 (Nameless) made me shed a tear from my right eye during the lake jump scene.

Unfortunately this show was not as good as I had expected and hoped, it was longer than it should have been, and it did not focus on Violet Evergarden’s story enough; I was hoping for more scenes from before and during the war et cetera.

It was not bad but if they had shortened it and had more action and information about the politics of the world et cetera, it would have been better, because they did not do a good job explaining the world.

The few moments of action were good, and it would be cool to see more things with this level of animation.

The end,
