Kyoto Animation has really been working hard since the tragic arson fire which took many lives. And now, their latest work since that fire, Violet Evergarden the Movie, has just released a new key visual. It features Violet and Gilbert.
The film was supposed to premiere back in January. Unfortunately, they pushed it back for understandable reasons. Now, it will premiere this 24th April in Japan.
Kyoto Animation also released new details about the film’s story. According to the official website, the film will be centering more on Violet’s relationship with Gilbert, and how she refuses to believe that he is dead. And this happens as Violet gets a job from a boy named Julis.
Taichi Ishidate will be returning to direct the film over at Kyoto Animation. This will be the second Violet Evergarden film, following Violet Evergarden – Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll – spin-off. The spin-off anime film will be premiering on Netflix this 2nd April.
