Violet Evergarden (ヴァイオレット・エヴァーガーデン, Vaioretto Evāgāden?) is the ninth episode of the Violet Evergarden anime adaptation. It aired on March 8, 2018.



Violet attempts to carry a wounded Gilbert to safety, but is shot and hit with a grenade in the process, resulting in the loss of both of her arms. Gilbert tells Violet to leave without him and finally tells her that he loves her, but she doesn't understand his words. Defeated, the enemy army bombs their own headquarters, and Gilbert sacrifices his life to push Violet to safety. In the present, Violet returns to the battle site to search for Gilbert. Hodgins then arrives and tells her that Gilbert had entrusted her care to him in case anything happened to him. Violet returns to the post office with Hodgins but refuses to do any more ghostwriting work, worrying her coworkers. In her grief, Violet attempts to commit suicide but cannot go through with it. After helping Benedict deliver letters and reading a letter sent to her by Erica and Iris, Violet comes to realize that the act of receiving a letter can bring someone joy. She returns to work, starting with ghostwriting a letter for Spencer, Luculia's brother. Violet returns to the post office and asks Hodgins if it is really okay for a person like her live on. Hodgins responds that what she had done in the war can never be undone, but that also applies to all of the good deeds she has done as an Auto Memories Doll.
