Title: Violet Evergarden
Studio: Kyoto Animation
Officially Available On: Netflix
To be honest, it’s a little surreal that Violet Evergarden is finally here.
With this episode, I feel like a blank spot has been filled a bit.
One thing I dislike about Violet Evergarden‘s guest characters is the low chance of seeing them again.
Frankly, I can’t believe the light novel didn’t present a scenario like this.
Given the show’s theme, an arranged political marriage is an interesting scenario for this show.
Oh my God, they actually remembered to adapt the stinking book. Pinch me, I must be dreaming.
Taking some cues from Princess Peach, I see.
Symbolically speaking, Violet’s world has always been burning and at the time, she didn’t even realize it.
You’re gonna carry that weight, Violet.
I remember reading the chapter this episode is based on and I felt that nothing else in the light novel will be able to top it. I got that same feeling again when I watched its anime adaptation.
There seems to be a much heavier atmosphere in the anime adaptation of this chapter.
Watching war creep back into Violet’s life ought to be interesting.
Whatever flaws I may find with Violet Evergarden, it was still a worthwhile ride.
It’s a crime that this episode got shoved to DVD bonus feature territory.
