May You Be an Exemplary Auto Memories Doll (あなたが、良き自動手記人形になりますように, Anata ga Yoki Jido Shuki Ningyō ni Narimasu Yō ni?) is the third episode of the Violet Evergarden anime adaptation. It aired on January 25, 2018.
Violet attends at the Auto Memories Doll Training School in order to become a true Doll. There, she meets and befriends a girl named Luculia Marlborough. The next day, Violet and Luculia are assigned to practice their actual ghostwriting skills on each other. However, Instructor Rhodanthe is unimpressed with the way Violet ghostwrote Luculia's letter, informing her that letters are an instrument for communicating a person's feelings, and that letter she ghostwrote was unacceptable. Luculia decides to take Violet to her favorite spot atop a bell tower to show her the view, and it is revealed Luculia's brother is crippled from the war and is now a drunkard. However, Violet fails to pass the class while Luculia graduates with top marks. Luculia meets Violet again and offers to ghostwrite a letter to Gilbert, but Violet cannot find the words to say. Luculia then tells Violet how her parents died in the war and her brother feels guilty over failing to protect them. She wants to tell her brother that she's just glad he's alive and home, but likewise cannot find the words to say. Touched by Luculia's words, Violet manages to write a short and concise letter that effectively conveys Luculia's feelings to her brother. Upon being shown the letter, Instructor Rhodanthe allows Violet to graduate and Luculia helps her brother to the top of the bell tower to enjoy the view like they used to as children.
