Violet Evergarden Watch Order Guide

I still remember when I first saw the trailer of Violet Evergarden. It was a visual feast. The anime community was going gaga over the sheer effort KyoAni has put into the animation. But oh man, it was a letdown story-wise. Violet Evergarden’s premise often switches between episodic and story-driven, which many anime have tried, but only a few succeeded, and Violet Evergarden became yet another example of the failed attempt.

However, even if the story was hit or miss, the characters and world-building were top-notch for the alternate Victorian era setting. Kyoto Animation once again proved why they are regarded as a top-notch studio with the masterpiece they have created in terms of animation and visuals. The music was also charming enough to match the story making Violet Evergarden a good enough anime.

If you are a fan of KyoAni and love the beautiful animation that made the studio popular, Violet Evergarden will not disappoint you. So if you are planning to watch Violet Evergarden, watch it according to this order.
