Violet Evergarden Episode 5: Love stories


I'm finding myself a little torn about how this series is presenting Violet. On the one hand, it's nice to see her progression as a doll shown by her actions. On the other hand, I get the feeling that I'm missing out on her story. That being said, this week's story was pretty interesting.

I was pretty surprised to see Violet left alone on such an important task. It actually added a bit of tension to the episode, seeing her broker a political marriage between two nations. I was really wondering whether she had the capacity to do it, but her letters can come a long way.

Violet, stop making me laugh so much. Good to see that some things never change.

I really liked how Charlotte was introduced in this episode. She was presented as the typical bratty princess who gets forced into an arranged marriage with a man she doesn't love. She even misleadingly asks whether the marriage would work if there was no love. It implied that she wasn't interested, but we later find out that it's the opposite.

It was also charming to see the letters between the two. The reactions from the citizens made them much more entertaining to watch. Having the dolls see your true feelings is embarrassing enough, but entire nations could see these.

So, are we going back to Violet's past again? I really hope this guy doesn't force Violet to just regress after the progress she's made.
