Violet Evergarden: is it possible to learn emotions?
Violet’s naive approach with the external world bonds her character to the audience. At the end of the anime, Violet is capable of understanding the feelings vehiclulated by a glimpse. She finally feels the burden of major Gilbert’s words. She takes the name of the flower Violet. A flower appreciated by ancient Greeks and associated with delicacy and sensitivity. It’s the final stage that Violet Evergarden achieves. Romans and Greeks also accompanied the flower Violet to funeral and death as a simbol of innocence and purity. Violet Evergarden is a strong shout about hope. It establishes the spark inside all humans, even in characters who experienced despair. It’s the lyric of the soul.
Violet Evergarden. The signs of a masterpiece.
Details, bright colours, light reflections makes Violet Evergarden alive. It’s like the reality of Shinkai (see our review of Weathering with You) has blended with the sentiment of A Silent Voice. Shading and the precise soundtracks add an extra tone to the series. Each frame is precisely calibrated in terms of drawings and music. It’s the perfect recipe to create a warm environment to steal the heart of the audience.
Everything I’ve done so far has sparked a flame that is now burning me up
