What anime had a big emotional impact on you? Didn’t I just answer this the other day? No. This one is different. All right, but can I use the same answer? Hey, it’s my blog, I can do what I want. In a more serious attempt to justify this selection, I had used this answer for the saddest death, but this series also had wonderful moments of hope and joy. Yes, I am picking Violet Evergarden again.
Why is that? I started watching Violet Evergarden knowing absolutely nothing about it, but it looked like it would be safe enough to watch when I was up late trying to get a newborn to go back to sleep. Thankfully, it was safe and to my surprise it was astounding.
The series is filled with wonderful stories. Some are happy and lift you up, others are sad and touch you deeply. It was an absolute emotional rollercoaster of a series. On top of that, it was a work of art. Everything about it blew me away.
On top of the individual stories, there was Violet’s story which was in itself a tragic and wonderful adventure. Even when there was no hope of the outcome she desperately clung to, you couldn’t help but want her to be right. Seriously, if you’ve not seen it, go watch it right now.
Anything else you’d like to say? I just had a quick look ahead and there’s another day I could use Violet Evergarden for. I will have to take a moment to consider my options. As much as I love Violet, I’m not sure how much more I can say about it. I’ll leave you guessing as to which other day I would have used it.
