‘Violet Evergarden’ is Getting an All-New Anime Project

The official Twitter account for Violet Evergarden confirmed that a “completely new” anime project has been green-lit. They didn’t state if the new anime will be a TV series, OVA, or movie.

The project was first teased on the wraparound jacket for the Violet Evergarden Gaiden novel, but the medium was yet revealed. Violet Evergarden Gaiden is a collection of short stories, but it may not be the basis for the new anime.

Violet Evergarden first gained notoriety when it became the first and only entry to win the grand prize in the Kyoto Animation Award program. Kana Akatsuki wrote the award-winning concept, which was later picked up for publication by KyoAni. Two novels and a side story collection have been published – all featuring illustrations from Akiko Takase.

Violet Evergarden focuses on Violet, an orphan who works as a ghostwriter at CH Postal Services. Before becoming an Auto Memory Doll, Violet was a child soldier who showcased great fighting ability. However, after losing her arms and memories, Violet sets out to become a letter writer to discover the meaning of the words “I love you.”
