Kyoto Animation has the uncanny ability to spoil animation fans with their perfect animation so today we are sharing 11 violet evergarden gifs.
There are words Violet heard on the battlefield, which she cannot forget. These words were given to her by someone she holds dear, more than anyone else. She does not yet know their meaning. A certain point in time, in the continent of Telesis.
The great war which divided the continent into North and South has ended after four years, and the people are welcoming a new generation.
Violet Evergarden, a young girl formerly known as “the weapon,” has left the battlefield to start a new life at CH Postal Service. There, she is deeply moved by the work of “Auto Memories Dolls,” who carry people’s thoughts and convert them into words.
Violet begins her journey as an Auto Memories Doll, and comes face to face with various people’s emotions and differing shapes of love. All the while searching for the meaning of those words.
11 Perfect Violet Evergarden Gifs that Show the Skill of KyoAni
From the blind obedience to kill to the development of a conscience which can heal, Violet’s growth was truly remarkable, with the difference between her past and present crystal clear.
Her blunt and fearless character had often been an obstacle against her success as a doll, but as the series progressed she managed to use them in the right circumstances.
Her military salutes, her formal language, her expressionless face… They all changed. This is what the novel couldn’t provide, those subtle details that show signs of growth.
Their attention to detail in every slight shadow on their clothing and backgrounds is world class.
From subtle facial cues:
Everyone in this world like that of runway models, all given a chance to play civilians. Realism made implausible when all inhabitants look like they should be doing photo ops for H&M brochures.
To the smooth movement of limbs:
Other reviews have pointed out the technological and cultural inaccuracies in VE, but personally it didn’t affect me that much except maybe for those robotic arms which seem to be more advanced than one we have today…
KyoAni has further cemented their status as masters at conveying non-verbal emotion.
You die beautifully. You get angry beautifully. You get beaten up with style. Even tears are delivered with streams of diamond-like orbs, with the owners’ faces made for the camera.
Their action scenes are just as strong with realistic movement that lets you feel the weight of characters.
The reason I’m mentioning this is because flowers are an important theme here: if you look at the names of most of the characters, they’re all related to flowers.
But, let’s take the time to appreciate Violet Evergarden‘s quieter scenes, which no doubt require tons of effort.
The simple act of Violet kissing her brooch:
To Claudia’s quivering lip:
All the subtle movements show that KyoAni continues to refine their ability to tell a story without lengthy dialogue.
Have you fallen in love with KyoAni’s latest project?
This is probably the best part and what made VE get such high expectations. The face expressions were great, the landscapes were great…
If I was to point out the best ones, I’d say the scenes of the starry night (Ep 6), street lamps and the city of Leiden as a whole. I also liked the way they included flowers a lot throughout the series (especially Ep 5, you could see one almost very 5 seconds).
