So this months theme is Believe . We are dedicating to the tragedy that hit Kyoto Animation recently. I choose Violet Evergarden .
Kyoto Animation. We all have that one anime we enjoyed from Kyoto Animation. Whether it is pain or joy, Kyoto Animation has brought to life stories that can touch our emotions. For the month of August, we will be honoring Kyoto Animation and all it has done for art, storytelling, and popular culture by discussing some of our favorite Kyoto Animation series. We will discuss what we love about these series and what they taught us. The fire that happened at the studio is indeed a tragedy. We pray for the lives that were lost in this tragedy and the families that are suffering at this time. Fires may be dangerous, but there are flames that burn within us that spark passion, hope, and belief in ourselves
This anime was adapted from a light novel. It has 13 episodes and every episode was an emotional ride for me. The story is about a girl named Violet who is an orphan that because of her combat skills was taken in by a military general Gilbert. She always thought of herself as his tool or “dog” but he never thought of her as a tool. A battle occurs and Violet loses her arms and gets new mechanical ones and she is told that he is recovering . In the meantime she becomes an Auto Memory Doll . They are women who write letters for people who cant write or dont know how to express themselves. Violet becomes one to understand the last words major told her : I love you.
Not too spoil too much but just as Violet recovered from her burns and scars from the bottom of my heart I hope people from Kyoto Animation will recover too.
