“Violet Evergarden” to Premiere at Anime Expo 2017

Violet Evergarden, Kyoto Animation’s beautiful adaptation of the light novel series by the same name, will premiere its first episode at this year’s Anime Expo! The official website for the project announced this information along with a promotional video and key visual. Following the premiere, the convention will host a Q&A session with the series’ director Taichi Ishidate, the lead actress Yui Ishikawa, and the opening theme performer TRUE.

Anime Expo describes the series’ plot below:

“There are words Violet heard on the battlefield, which she cannot forget. These words were given to her by someone she holds dear, more than anyone else. She does not yet know their meaning.

A certain point in time, in the continent of Telesis. The great war which divided the continent into North and South has ended after four years, and the people are welcoming a new generation.

Violet Evergarden, a young girl formerly known as “the weapon”, has left the battlefield to start a new life at CH Postal Service. There, she is deeply moved by the work of “Auto Memories Dolls”, who carry people’s thoughts and convert them into words.

Violet begins her journey as an Auto Memories Doll, and comes face to face with various people’s emotions and differing shapes of love.  All the while searching for the meaning of those words.”

Violet Evergarden will begin airing in January 2018 after its world premiere on July 2.

This magus who seems closer to demon than human, will he bring her the light she desperately seeks, or drown her in ever deeper shadows?”
