The director of the film Ishidate Taichi said in an interview that he hopes that people will feel Violet’s love for Gilbert through the movie.This has led to many theories that Gilbert Bougainvilla, the late soldier and Violet’s master, might have a reappearance.
The storyline of the original series follows Violet Evergarden, a girl who was deeply injured both physically and mentally in a war with no human emotion trying to understand the last words (“I Love You”) her master, Gilbert Bougainvillea said to her.
By the end of the show, we see how much progress she has made in the emotional aspect. Her transformation from being a mere weapon to becoming an actual human being with emotions moved the heart of anyone watching the show.
