Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

The award-winning anime adaptation tells a good story filled with emotional moments and artistic detail. Unlike the print series, it doesn't immediately offer a detailed account of Violet's earliest years. But with the help of flashbacks, it offers enough to help viewers appreciate what she's been through, and to acknowledge the significance of her journey going forward. Despite being a bit soap opera-like, Violet Evergarden is entertaining and compelling, so much so that it has inspired several movies and series spin-offs. If you're looking for a somewhat gentler paced, sensitive anime series, this one will certainly fit the bill.
