Violet Evergarden – Emotional Discovery, the Weight of Trauma and the Beauty of Life

Violet Evergarden is an overall fantastic work. It has an odd beginning and a decently executed ending, but the best part of the series is by far its middle.

Also, as heretical as it may be to say such a thing, I actually like the original Japanese version of 'Cowboy Bebop' more than the dub.

Alderamin on the Sky – Joy, Life, War and Horror
