I liked this episode as well, but I'm missing the rest of the cast. After the time invested in them at the outset, they've been tossed aside the last couple of weeks. I hope we get some ensemble episodes again ant not just Violet's task-of-the-week.

Absolutely stunning episode. One could argue that the pacing was a bit fast, but I personally don't really care because they conveyed the full depth of emotions they needed to over the course of the time slot. The majority of the episode, especially the scene with the lake and the final shot cutting off right before Violet presumably cried out, was legitimately feature film quality. I'm also actually both surprised and happy that Violet learned the truth about Gilbert this early on. Now we have decent amount of time to see all the development and fallout.

(And I get the trope of no body = no death, but I kind of hope he actually is dead. I just personally like it when characters don't come back. XD)

This was probably the most beautiful episode of an anime that I have ever seen. KyoAni outdid themselves here, especially with that scene with Violet in the water.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how Violet will cope with what she learned this episode.

I know this is bad to mention but...

Every time Violet shows her hands, I expect her to have to occasionally stop by Rockbell's for a cleaning and minor repairs.

OK, I'll be quiet now...

Wow... You can say what you want about it's other aspects, but Kyoani really nails the big dramatic moments of these episodes like nobody else. I haven't read the original, but as good as it might have been I really doubt it could have been presented better then was displayed at climax. This really has to with fact visual narratives at their heights can easily surpass the same scene in text if on point.

I don't know if there was that much enthusiasm in the first place. 7 episodes in this has very much been the same show as was in the first episode even if the focus has shifted a bit. So if you liked that then you're most likely still here, instead the activity in this thread is more of a testament that was always more of a low-key a fair. Despite the amazing production values it's not hard to see why if you take a step back consider what commonly drives engagement of more popular shows, that usually a strong mystery, drama or romantic element. Violet Evergarden has these in spots, but never delves deeply into them enough since a lot of this is focused around one-shot whom resolve their conflicts in one episode instead building upon one of those 3 elements around a single or multiple reoccurring characters.

But the whole Violent-Gilbert affair coming back into the spotlight might change that though.

While it's no Darling in the FRANXX, Violet has been holding her own compared to shows like Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens, a consistently well-written, amusing, and adult story that few people appear to be following. There are only eighty or so posts in that thread so far, a quarter of the traffic for this show.

Who cares about the amount of posts in a Western forum anyway. DarliFran actually isn't that popular in Japan. It's selling worse than Violet according to stalker estimations.

The hits of the season are Yuru Camp, Idolish Seven, Takagi-san and SoraYori. In that order.

Yuru Camp, against all expectation, ended up being gold.

actually since this serie is being "payed" by netflix, they also don't need to care "about sales" the studio already get his money from netflix.

The visual direction was on point, but the overall narrative and tone of who Violet Evergarden is far from being on point.

Let's be frank on one thing: nobody cares about the one-off clients the way Violet does.
KyoAni is aware of this, that's why they shifted the focus from "who Violet is to the clients" to "who Violet is".

Another decent episode but this time made better by what happens after Violet's work with the playwriter. Violet is finally made aware of Gilbert's (presumed) death though it really does beg the question how it was kept a secret from her longer than it had any right to be.
