Despite the understandable delays caused by the tragic Kyoto Animation arson attack last year, the celebrated studio’s Violet Evergarden: The Movie is apparently on track for its April 24 debut in Japan. An extension of KyoAni’s hit anime series, the new feature recently got a fresh local trailer and poster art reveal.
So far, an English-language release hasn’t been set for the film, which follows Violet Evergarden as she takes a job as a letter writer, learning to understand herself and the past that left her scarred and emotionless in a post-war world.
Following a special Funimation Films engagement in February, the feature-length side story to the series Violet Evergarden I: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll has been confirmed to join the Netflix streaming lineup on April 2. Subscribers can also catch the show’s first season on the platform.
