Just announced at Ohayocon 2020, Funimation is bringing Kyoto Animation’s Violet Evergarden I: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll to select U.S. theaters in early 2020! It will be screened in Japanese with English subtitles.

The film is a gaiden side story of the Violet Evergarden anime series that chronicles another of Violet’s adventures. The movie brings with it all of the dramatic trimmings of the highly-celebrated anime, as well as Kyoto Animation’s beautiful sakuga and emotional character storytelling.

The film originally debuted in Japan on September 6, 2019 and is the first new animated content for Violet Evergarden since the series aired in Winter 2018.

Violet Evergarden comes to a private women’s academy to tutor Isabella in the ways of being a lady. Heir to the York family, Isabella feels trapped in this new and uncomfortable world. She still grieves for the only person to ever bring her happiness – now lost to her. Violet’s lessons do give her a brief respite from the melancholy but with the absence of joy, how long does it take to truly heal?
