Violet Evergarden: Episode 06
Sean was lost and all alone in the wilderness without Lee. She was off living life like a damn hero and, while waiting for her swift return, he was riding wolves without a shirt on. As you do…
Sean was unaware of the extent of Smokey Bear’s travels and played his egotistical Californian hand a little too fast and loose. It doesn’t bother Lee, though, because being a Wisconsonianite she’s been wrestling bears, much like Smokey, for all of her life.
The pair dream up the next Studio Ghibli film sensation: Princess Seanonoke. Mr. Miyazaki, you’ve heard the cry of the people. Make this dream happen! Rest assured, there will be much Fabio hair. The film totally sells itself!
Are Italian and Spanish the exact same language? Who’s to say? The Italians? The Spaniards? Surely not. Leave it to two English-speaking people from the U.S. to weigh in on which language is which. (Hint: they’re pretty much all the same…)
Apparently, people in Wisconsin are desecrating the great name of chili by placing pasta into their beany slop. Lee’s not having any of that nonsense, but Sean is intrigued. Intrigued in a way that may encourage him to broaden his food horizons.
Lee can’t take the melting heat and Sean can’t take the chilling cold. Who are we kidding? Sean can’t take any sort of even slightly extreme temperature. In fairness, anything that isn’t the ideal of comfort is the absolute worst. Much like with hair, we always want what we don’t have.
Wouldn’t you know it, Sean finally finished some homework that Lee tasked him with. It involves watching a movie by Zack Snyder called Dawn of the Dead. They both have complex feelings about this gore-fest. This discussion is sure to upset some fans of the film.
In what we streamed this week, Violet Evergarden is summoned to a mountaintop observatory where she has to help a brooding young man transcribe a bunch of old text. Not exciting enough for you? Well, how about we get into the emotional depths that are plumbed between this young man and Violet. We learn a lot about who our main character is, and there are some doozy moments.
