    It was an okay first episode.

    I really lowered my standards because of that.

    Yeah. Like many are saying, amazing visuals and sound, but the story's kinda meh. I feel they went a little too far with portraying Violet as someone without much of a will of her own that by the end, when she does show her own will, it seems really out of character.

    I enjoyed the first episode. Everything about this anime is pretty, and I love the setting for it. I'll let the story slide for now since the first episode was just setting the scene.

    Obviously I'm biased, but, as someone who expected (and even looked forward to) some Key level melodrama, I am digging the veteran-trying-to-integrate-back-into-society angle of the narrative. You don't see it too often in anime. You kinda got that with FMP, but more comedic and with the MC still being an active soldier. For Violet, thanks to the loss of her arms and the end of the war, the most harrowing part of her life up till now is over. Now it's about healing.

    And I gotta say, my heart feels healed every time I look upon her face. :love

    I'm mildly impressed that you're trying to embellish the story. This is a story about someone who is learning how to be a sociable human being while she grieves over her only friend and it's likely gonna take us all season to develop her. That is a very boring narrative.

    What doesn't help at all with that narrative is that the main character is also boring. How quickly she develops and how intriguing the other parts of the story (flashbacks to the war itself, developing characters like Hodgins and Gilbert) will determine how soon I drop this series.

    Eh, like jayjay said, this is less about healing and more about integration. It's interesting you refer to FMP since the theme is similar, what with both Violet and Sousuke being child soldiers who virtually grew up fighting and knew nothing else. Because of that, they know nothing else and have trouble getting used to a "normal" life. It worked with FMP because it took a more comedic approach, not to mention he had the perfect counterpart in Kaname. Without her, Sousuke would be boring as hell. Violet is the same, and she has no counterpart who serves as a vessel through which to view her. That makes it difficult to sympathize with her.

    Idk about KyoAni in general, but this production team in particular should be making movies for the big bucks.

    Well they did recently produce Koe no Katachi (which if you haven't seen you should) that did quite well.

    The koe no katachi movie cut out and changed impactful scenes from the mango, but that couldn't be helped since it's a movie format. Kyo ani more than made up for it with how great everything looked.

    Their Haruhi and K-On movies were lookers as well.

    I don't think there was much embellishment at all. Violet is indeed a veteran soldier who has taken up a job as a ghostwriter. Her first experience with this job involved helping a frumpy looking guy tell his childhood sweetheart what she meant to him and that he loved the shit out of her. Given the significance of the fact that she herself chose to be a ghostwriter after witnessing this, her integration back into society and the healing - of both Violet and her future charges - are guaranteed to be intertwined.

    That she is woefully unprepared for the social and the feeling part of this job is a fun point of interest. If it was just her and her social awkwardness trying to live peacefully within society after a life of bloodshed, then I agree, that alone would not be too engaging. But, there's a fish out of water story, and then there's a fallen warrior girl who cannot express her own feeling who has tasked herself with conveying the feelings and emotions of others. That is a strong and fun character dynamic. Will the writers be able to capitalize on bringing the potential of that dynamic to fruition? Maybe. The seeds were planted well enough in the first episode at the very least.

    I will agree with other users here that the story seems to be somewhat lacking so far but it is only the first episode. Hopefully things will get better as the season progresses. And yeah, it was just great to watch. It felt so cinematic at times. It is KyoAni after all.

    First episode ended up much better than I thought it would. I'm totally a sucker for these kinds of things though. You know, main character who is terrible at understanding people but really wants to. Plus, bonus of tragic love story background, gasp, my heart.
