Plot:

Auto Memories Doll.

It's been quite a while since that name caused a fuss. Originally invented by Professor Orland solely for his beloved wife, Auto Memories Dolls eventually spread out into the world, and a machine that allows people to rent out the dolls was also created.

"I will run as fast as I can to wherever my customer desires. I am the Auto Memories Doll, Violet Evergarden."

A girl who almost appears to have popped out of a fairy tale with her blonde hair and blue eyes said this with her inorganic beauty and sweet voice.

There is rumors that it may happen this time. But Andy pointed out that those rumors seem to happen every season. So take that as you see fit

If you pay for the legal service, get it anyway. You are still paying for the rights anyhow. This is not pirating.

I'm still waiting for Kakegurui, but I hope they can do right by this series.

It should be illegal to create shows so beautiful.Some scenes felt like KyoAni was just showing off.

Episode 1
Great start.
Spoiler:
What happens to warriors when their war is over?Can tool of destruction learn to live among regular humans?
Story seems to take inspiration from post World War I period, when hundred of thousands had to return home and fight with shell shock and post dramatic stress disorder caused by war.I find it fascinating.

Episode 1

It's hard not to go into hyperbole over how good that first episode was. It wasn't perfect, but it was sure close. It had the same feel as one of my favorite movies, Atonement, as it hit all the same kinds of notes as that movie. Let's just call the 2018 awards over now and give this show all the awards! :D Joking, of course. However, I'm truly excited to see how this turns out. If this show continues with the same momentum, it has the potential to be in my all time favorites for any story-telling genre.

PS - The voice work by Takehito Koyasu (Col Hodgins) and Yui Ishikawa (Violet Evergarden) was next level.
