It makes you think about how you treat people with disabilities.

20s man

This animation makes me think about many things. When we were in elementary school, we had very little knowledge about disabilities. Therefore, I think it is a reality that it can develop into bullying. The main character who has been bullied is hated by his friends and can't trust anyone but his parents.
Shōko forgave Shōya despite the fact that he had been bullied by the main character. That really made me cry.

It's a complex and difficult subject, but it's moving.

40s man

Violet Evergarden is a delicate psychological story. I was struck by the heroic Violet who tries to understand other people's emotions little by little even though it is difficult for her to do so. There may be many opinions about the final episodes, but this is a wonderful anime that envelops the viewer in tenderness and fragility throughout.
