The story of the new episode will center on a letter request from an opera house songstress and take place over several months between the events of the anime's episodes 4 and 5.
This special episode comes up to the same standard as the rest of the anime. I loved watching it, through my heart wrenching tears. The story is about coming to terms with a lost love, putting it into words and sharing it with the community.
Jesus freaking Christ. I came back for the special and got slayed all over again. As i'm writing this tears are still falling down my cheeks from just having watched this. Holy crap. That impact. Ugh....need a moment. Honestly going into this I didn't think I'd be as emotionally captured again as I was watching the series because its been awhile and I don't have that freshness of the anime, but it got me there at the end when I was like expecting it but not thinking I was going to cry again. Granted I cried way harder during some parts of the series but this still got my heart strings and made me ache for the characters of the show. Violet Evergarden delivers in another emotional segment with flawless animation and beautiful messages. I just really want a happy ending for someone at this point though, for realz. .... ... The movie isn't till 2020?!?!?!?!! MPMPNOFdjasGIHIOSTHHOHASd
