Violet Evergarden

There we are, the 20th anime I watched this year and another goal already achieved far sooner then expected...

But what a series this Netflix show was...


The story revolves around Auto Memory Dolls: people initially employed by a scientist named Dr. Orland to assist his blind wife Mollie in writing her novels, and later rented out to other people who needed their services.  The story follows Violet Evergarden's journey of reintegrating back into society after the war is over and her search for her life's purpose now that she is no longer a soldier.
This leads here to solve various life issues for other people, but also faces her own uncertainties, and having to cope with her injuries from the war.  And her quest to find Major Gilbert, her surrogate father whom she loves dearly...

What I liked about it

* Gorgeous animation and a strong soundtrack, coupled to an intense storyline
* "Hard" doesn`t even start to cover this series, what a true gutwrencher this was...

What I didn`t like about it

* If you are looking for a nice series for a relaxing evening... keep on looking for something else

A truly magnificent epos, full of drama yet also of hope, this is one of the greats on the anime scene in my opinion!
