[Highlights] Violet Evergarden 12: Violet Makes Grown Men Salty

Frankly, I found it hard to take this episode seriously, though this may be the most serious the anime has gotten in terms of developing some overarching external conflict. Here's Cattleya being pretty in her new coat before we get into all the ugly stuff in this episode! She's on the way to help with …

[Highlights] Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho 13: To Strive, to Seek, to Find

The end of the journey was quite satisfying. I was expecting some escapist's fantasy when I put Yorimoi on my watch list, but what I got was the entire opposite. The journey has ended, but the feels will carry on! Wow, thousand-year-old air. I don't get how the anime strives to be realistic in every aspect about …

This episode did an excellent job taking the series to a new emotional height right before the final episode. Yorimoi offers something heartbreaking even before reaching the 1 minute mark. Shirase remembers that …

[Highlights] Violet Evergarden 10: Molding the Feels

Wow, this week's Violet Evergarden did a lot. I rarely get emotional watching anything, and I honestly wasn't expecting Violet Evergarden to be the show to deliver such feels. It makes me wonder though - why such a different effect compared to the previous episodes? The storyline for this episode is equally as predictable as those in …
