Storytelling, visual and animation success

Violet Evergarden is about former soldier Violet, a young girl who is trained and used as a war tool for the fierce final days of the war. Violet has permanently lost her hands and the commanding officer – who is also the only relative. Before she died, Violet was left with the words I love you, which she could not understand.

If you don’t know, each 24-minute episode in the series took a month to design. And the result of those artists’ efforts is a dreamlike Violet, whose mechanical fingers move rhythmically on the typewriter keyboard that has become the trademark of this series.

The scenes are designed extremely elaborately. No less competitive when the songs are composed very touching. All have created a shimmering work of art, enough to make it a work of art worthy of the most winged compliments.
