Violet Evergarden episode 1

This episode sure lived up to the hype. No opening song unfortunately, maybe we'll see it next episode. The story isn't fully linear with flashbacks revealing the backstory of the characters. The story might be a bit silly if she remains in the post office for the rest of the anime but I don't think it's gonna be that.

I just watched it and I really gotta say the animation was on point. There is so much attention to detail in every scene, even in the background and little things you wont even notice. From the looks of it will definitely live up to the hype.

It did live up to the hype. I'm really satisfied. And, the other good thing is, her entire history isn't revealed in a big exposition dump. And, there's no exposition dump at all. Everything makes sense, and I'm able to follow every story beat without the writers throwing in terms to my face I won't remember in the next episode(ala Mahoutsukai no Yome). And, not just the art, the animation was incredible. KyoAni was really good in A Silent Voice with facial expressions(that was a movie budget of course), and this looks very good too. There's a lot of details and nuances here and there, and I was forced to pay attention to the visuals, and not the subs. And, the transition/time-lapse scenes look absolutely gorgeous. My only problem is a nit-pick, I kind of cringed at the end, when she said she wanted to know about love, that was kinda cliched. But, other than that, I hope this focuses on how she deals with trauma, makes connections with people, and her backstory, and I hope that it's visceral. On a side note, Violet reminds me of Sagara Sousuke from Full Metal Panic, a series I'm currently watching(and gonna finish soon). And, the music is very good too.

PS: The Netflix subs are pretty good, so you don't have to rely on Asenshi or other fan-subs, and can get from Horrible Subs, which essentially rips Netflix subs and does nothing on its own, and give out 1080p a lot sooner than Asenshi does(though Asenshi gives 720p a lot sooner, and that's the version you see in Kissanime, etc.). I watched the HorribleSubs/Netflix 1080p version first, and then I played the Asenshi one in 8x speed(only 720p released as of this moment), and the subs are mostly identical.

Sounds like its worth watching. I'll keep my eye on it.

As for a lack of an opening, I've seen anime doing this of late, kind of a good thing since a opening can spoil somethings.

Could just be the first episode with out it, a lot of series do this. Maybe they just wanted to fit in as much as they could into the first episode. I actually like openings a lot they really hype you up for the series, hope they get one later on.

A lot of series I know don't play the ending theme, and just play the opening at the end in the first episode. Can't remember the exact names right now.
I'm really looking forward to the opening of this anime. The last KyoAni anime I saw was Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, and I loved the opening.

I wasn't a huge fan of that opening and usually I only watch the opening for the first episode and then skip it for the rest of the series. Some openings are just so good that I watch it every time. Jojo was one of these I watched all the openings and endings, death note had some really nice ones too.

The latest one I can remember that did that for me was the third opening of Cardcaptor Sakura. I watched it every single time(for like 24 episodes).
I wasn't an instant fan of Kobayashi's opening too, but for some reason it grew on me. Plus, I didn't watch it every episode. Watched it in the first ep, wasn't a big fan of it, randomly put it during the 5th or 6th episode, and started liking it more.

I think for me its mainly the action ones with awesome songs that hype me up before the episode starts.

Mob Psycho 100's opening is terrific. We just did a group watch of that anime. Try it out. It's from the same guy who wrote One Punch Man.
