"The real tragedy happened long before I came along"

I thought the finale was LOVELY. And I would watch a season 2.

I'm glad it stopped being Violent Evergarden but hell I wasn't expecting it to go full Ghost in the Shell like that.

I like that the episode title is a reversal of the first episode's title.

Gilbert being alive in the novels doesn't surprise me despite how dumb it'd be in the show.

At least Dietfried was less of an rear end in a top hat too, though he's still a little hostile towards Violet.

I'd also watch a second season but that felt like a good ending anyway. Though isn't there meant to be a 14th episode / OVA thing too? The Wikipedia page for the show says it's a 14 episode series (but that could be an error?).

It also mentions this:

quote:

On April 4, 2018, the official Twitter page for the anime series revealed that the “new Violet Evergarden anime will be completely new.”

Not sure what that means, I read it as 'season 2 will be original content not from the novel' but it could be something else.

That would be completely unsurprising given how much of even this first season was original content.

I'd bet a fair bit that the new content'll be a movie rather than a full new season - KyoAni's been making movies with a lot of their IPs lately. This particular story'll probably benefit from movie-style pacing, too.

It means just that, they're a faction of ex-soldiers who are anti-peace and want the war to continue, because they're a bunch of salty dickheads who feel their government betrayed them by surrendering when if they'd continued fighting they could have won the war.

I would watch S2 and S1 ended on a positive note.

It keeps getting brought up in this thread, so can someone in the know say how exactly the anime differed from the LNs?

I'm not a fan of the open-ended ending here, unless this is actually 14 episodes+..?

If they really wanted to close things out and cement Gilbert's death, the letter would have actually just said "I love you too". Short and with massive impact.

The anime was a good 70-80% original content only using the premise of the book.

Basically it's telling its own story from after Violet meets the Evergarden family in the first episode except for the flashbacks which are mostly accurate to parts of the book.
