Violet Evergarden is the latest series to join Netflix UK’s anime line-up, with new episodes arriving weekly.
Created back in 2015 by Kana Akatsuki and illustrator Akiko Takase, an anime was shortly given the green light. It follows Violet, who needs a job following the end of a war. Scarred and emotionless, she takes a job as a letter writer to understand herself and her past. Working in a post office, she discovers a new technology known as Auto Memory Dolls, which help turn thoughts and memoris into words. She begins an exploration of her own memories, after being told something strange during the war – leading her on an unexpected journey into the past.
The anime is directed by Taichi Ishidate and animated by Kyoto Animation, with a voice cast that includes Yui Ishikawa, Takehito Koyasu and Daisuke Namikawa. The combination of a popular novel series, intriguing concept and visuals from the same studio and director as such hits as K-On! and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was enough to attract Netfix’s attention, with the streaming giant snapping up the rights exclusively last summer.
Now, the series has premiered on Netflix UK, within 24 hours of its Japanese debut. That simulcast will continue internationally, as Netflix debuts a new episode every week on Thursdays. Here’s a Japanese trailer for the anime:
