DID YOU KNOW?
The Violet Evergarden light novel was the first-ever work to win all three categories in the 5th Kyoto Animation Awards? These were under the Novel, Scenario, and Manga categories. This was followed by an award for Best Animation during the 2019 Crunchyroll Anime Awards. What is the Violet Evergarden anime all about anyway? The story revolves around a young girl named Violet Evergarden, trained to be a child soldier and was involved in The Great War. She was maimed and gravely injured during the last days of the war. It was also the day that she lost the person she held most dear in her life, Major Gilbert, leaving her with the last words, "I love you."
Recovering from her wounds and with nowhere to go, she starts her new life working at the CH Postal Service. There, she sees first-hand the work of an Auto Memory Doll, whose work is to transcribe people's thoughts and emotions to words and put them on paper. She becomes captivated by this and starts to work as an Auto Memory Doll herself. Thus begins the journey that will see her connect with her clients in meaningful ways. It is also her own journey of self-discovery and to find the meaning behind the words that were once uttered to her, "I love you". Violet Evergarden is a heartwarming tale that any anime fan needs to see. With a short 13-episode run, it might not be enough though. Thankfully, its movie is set to release in 2020, exclusively on Netflix.
