Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll
Sean definitely did do his homework this time. Cue the parade! Sound off the city bells! Start the fireworks show because this is a momentous event that deserves to be celebrated. He made a list of nice movies for Lee to watch. Has she seen most of them already? Who cares? It’s still a nice list. There’s a link down below for you to check it out.
While going through Sean’s homework, it becomes apparent that Lee is the most Greek person you can find this side of, well, Greece. Is it her love of falafels? The fact that she’s seen at least one Nia Vardalos film? The world may never know…
Trigger warning: Sean came up with some talking topics—on Lee’s insistence—and one of those is an extended chat about the bones we’ve snapped, fractured, and otherwise broken. Will Sean’s toes ever be safe again?
He does want a tattoo maybe, but he’s not going to get one without trying out some designs on a temporary broken bone cast. If anyone knows a doctor who is willing to put an unnecessary cast on Sean, then contact the show!
In what was streamed this week, Violet Evergarden is going supersized! We’ve all got a 90-minute episode of the show on our plates here. Yep, a running time equal to about four separate episodes of the main show is what we’re given. Violet is tasked with teaching a young woman how to become cultured. A debutante, if you will. Their friendship grows and we learn of a young girl that this woman was looking after. In the second half of the film, we join this young girl as she tries to find her dear “sister.” Violet touches the lives of two people this time, and we get to wonder if this story needed to be film length.
