The anime’s story was based on the relatively short Violet Evergarden novel series, but anime studio Kyokhổng lồ Animation is well known for stretching a story way beyond its source material. Based on the first season, that’s the plan for the upcoming sequel.

The third 2018 Violet Evergarden novel officially confirmed that a “new project” was greenlit for production & then in July 2018 the Violet Evergarden movie was announced. The film was delayed due to lớn the horrific KyoAni fire attachồng, và then again by the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus pandemic, but it was eventually announced that the movie would be coming out in the fall of 20đôi mươi. (See below for more details.)

The official Violet Evergarden Twitter trương mục also said that the anime movie will be “completely new work,” which presumably means it will be an anime original story. The only question remaining is whether a second season will be announced later, although at least one OVA episode was already released in mid-2018 (see below for more details).

The Violet Evergarden anime is based on a 2014 novel by author Kamãng cầu Akatsuki which won the fifth Kyokhổng lồ Animation Award. The original draft was rewritten khổng lồ meet light novel standards and published in December năm ngoái. The second volume of the book series released in năm 2016 và completed the main story, so the Violet Evergarden novel released in March 2018 was a Gaiden (side story).

Fans were hoping that the third book would contain an after story featuring Violet & Major Gilbert Bougainvillea, but it’s largely focused on side characters lượt thích Benedict, Cattleya, & Hodgins. So far, a Violet Evergarden manga adaptation has not been announced.

Fortunately, Kyoto Animation announced Violet Evergarden Volume 4, which could serve sầu as the basis for a Violet Evergarden Season 2 anime. Published on March 27, 2020, Violet Evergarden Ever After was a direct sequel khổng lồ the main storyline. Based on the way the second book ended, this continuation of the main story was more of an after story since it shows what happens to lớn the main characters even as the world is changing around them.

Netflix’s Violet Evergarden dub in English was well-received, although there were legitimate concerns that the context of some scenes was changed by the way certain lines were worded. Unfortunately, no book publisher has licensed the official English translation of the Violet Evergarden novel, but there are completed fan translation projects for the first two volumes (English translations of the gaiden novel are currently in progress).

Violet Evergarden Anime Is Largely An Original Story

The first volume of the light novel series was critically well-received, with reviewers noting that the story structure (which was chronologically out of order) provided a memorable ending as a standalone story. The story purposefully was out of order since it introduced a mysterious main character và then slowly peeled baông chồng the layers of her history so her motivations became apparent.

In fact, the original novel didn’t even mention Major Gilbert or her involvement in the war until the last chapter. So for the anime lớn reveal her background right off the bat was quite a difference.

Violet Evergarden Volume 2 expanded the story with perspectives from other characters. It also expanded on her personal recovery after the war và provided more details about Major Gilbert. Overall, the books were about unraveling this mysterious character through stories related lớn the letters written as an Auto Memories Doll. The original sequence of events were designed lớn showcase her growth and development while also evolving how the readers view the main character.

Director Taichi Ishidate knew from the beginning that the structure of the two novels would not work well as a serialized story. During a 2017 Sakugabooru interview, the director noted that the “novels are structured in a very episodic format, where each story independently depicts Violet writing on behalf of a client,” but the issue was that “anime & novels are different mediums.”

“As such, it would be troublesome to use the same presentation techniques in the animated adaptation that were used in its original written form,” Taibỏ ra explained. “And so we reconstructed the story inlớn a TV series.”

It was unavoidable that the anime adaption would be restructured since Violet Evergarden Volume 2 had many flashbaông xã chapters. In order to create an “entertaining serial tale,” Taichi worked with screenplay writer Reiko Yoshidomain authority to give the novel a chronological timeline (here’s a guide for reading the books in chronological order).

The director wanted Violet khổng lồ be presented to audiences as “child-lượt thích innocent stage 0” only lớn grow emotionally as she met new people. Making this emotional development seem gradual was difficult since multiple anime episodes were being produced at the same time and there is “no tangible element that marks gradual change.” Looking back, Taichi wished he had created a “stats screen of Violet’s current growth stages, lượt thích Gentleness Level 5 and Empathy Level 4.”

“Violet is a lovely person on perhaps a primitive level, I think that’s her charm,” Taiđưa ra said. “I think the viewers will feel like they’re watching over their own daughters as they experience Violet’s growth.”

Anime adaptations will often boil down a light novel series to the essential elements due to lớn laông chồng of time. Slower paced anime will often need two books at the minimum, but oftentimes a director will rush through multiple novels. In the worst-case scenario, entire novels will be reduced into a single episode, but in the case of Violet Evergarden, the biggest problem was the relative sầu scarđô thị of source material to draw upon.

Excluding the two author’s notes, the first novel was only six chapters and 348 pages long, while the second book was seven chapters & 376 pages. Violet Evergarden Gaiden extended the story by adding 370 pages of side stories and Chapter 1: Princess and Aukhổng lồ Memories Doll was adapted by Episode 5 of the anime.

Kyoto Animation apparently decided lớn transcend the source material rather than be limited by the scope of the novels. The Violet Evergarden ending in Episode 13 was different from the first novel since the anime version finished on a bittersweet note, but it left the door open for more stories lớn be told. (Please see the final section of this article for more detailed spoilers for Violet Evergarden Season 2.)

Even the beginning of the anime expanded on the basic premise of the emotionless wounded soldier by showing how Violet was transformed slowly by her new life as an Aulớn Memories Doll. In fact, the entire training school plot was an anime original story that introduced side characters & fleshed them out.

In the original version of the story, readers were already halfway done reading the book before Benedict Blue and Cattleya Baudelaire was ever introduced. In contrast, Cattleya’s mother-like role was emphasized by the anime version, although another side of the doll was shown by how she’d flirt with Claudia “Claude” Hodgins. Poor young Benedict misunderstands women & is rejected by them, so he cries tears of joy when an older man shares his meal with hyên ổn.

The anime adaptation fleshed out all of these characters in comparison lớn the novel and also introduce two new original characters, Erica Brown & Iris Cannary. In a January 2018 interview with Shin-Q magazine, the director admitted that he initially “thought original characters were unnecessary,” but scriptwriter Reiko was convinced that having Cattleya as the only Auto Memories Doll employee at the CH Postal Company did not make sense. Giving Violet friends at her workplace would allow the main character to “contrast how she felt when she met all those outsiders.”

The new Violet Evergarden characters “would be the best way khổng lồ manifest incipient feelings” and serve sầu as a story foil for Violet’s emotional development. However, the director did take into account how the new characters might influence Violet as a person.

“Just as the title says, the story itself is about the main protagonist, Violet Evergarden, so I felt figuring out her portrayal was key. Claiming that this title only focuses on her would be going overboard – it’s more akin to an omnibus of episodic tales, though in the over she’s always at their epicenter. The way you present characters in novels and film is different of course, so I worried that placing her in a new medium would alter the feel of her character from the original. Thinking about how I would visualize my impressions when I read the novels was my first worry.”

It could be said that the director’s second worry was ensuring that the central theme of the anime was Major Gilbert’s last words to Violet.

“By having Violet constantly searching for the meaning of a certain phrase that Gilbert told her as the axis of the show, we felt that we could delve inlớn Violet herself and find out more about herself as she does,” Taiđưa ra explained. “We made that the core of this series.”

Violet Evergarden Novel Compared To The Anime: Could The Violet Evergarden Ever After Novel Be Adapted?

Critics can be overly harsh sometimes, especially when they’re fans of the original source material. Some cynical anime fans have even derided Violet as being “PTSD Saber Learns To Type” based on her resemblance lớn the Fate/Stay Night character. Kyokhổng lồ Animation may have sầu a history of creating critically-approved anime original stories based on a beloved manga and light novels, but there’s always the fear that original nội dung will just be filler.

Director Taichi has not directly addressed fans’ fears about filler content, but he does seem lớn believe sầu the pacing of the original content will meet the needs of fans of the light novels.

“I’ll say something frankly: Violet Evergarden feels like it’ll be a harsh work, but it’s also one that steadily becomes a worthwhile experience,” he said. “Please watch until the very over, and I hope you’ll be emotionally moved by sticking around with us.”

For fans wanting to compare the novel against the anime, here is a rough guide. The first chapter of Volume 1 was the main source material up until Episode 7, although Episode 2 pulled from Volume 2: Chapter 2 và Volume 1: Chapter 6.

As previously mentioned, Episode 5 was sourced from Violet Evergarden Gaiden & Episode 6 pulled stories from the middle of Volume 2. Episodes 8 and 9 mixed original content with material from near the kết thúc of Volume 1, while Episode 10’s plot was part of Chapter 2. Episode 11 adapted Chapter 3, Episode 12 adapted Chapter 6, & the season finale in Episode 13 adapted Chapters 6 và 7 from Volume 2.

While it sounds lượt thích the anime was skipping around out of order, keep in mind the novel was not in chronological order. All in all, the anime adaptation covered chapters 1 through 4, Chapter 6, và used parts from chapters 11 through 13.

What’s more, the Violet Evergarden Ever After novel provides five sầu additional chapters which extends the story. The book is written in such a way that Kyoto lớn Animation could work in original nội dung without overly disrupting the progression of the narrative sầu.

The good news is that this approach lớn adapting the novel should mean that it’s possible for Violet Evergarden Season 2 lớn be created based on original material.

Netflix’s Violet Evergarden: OVA Episode 14 In The Blu-Ray/DVD

Violet Evergarden Movie Release Date Set For Fall 2020

If you look bachồng at the history of Kyokhổng lồ Animation, three things tkết thúc khổng lồ st& out. One is that they have sầu a tendency khổng lồ create second và third seasons of anime. The other is that they excel at taking stories like Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid (see our article on Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Season 2), K-On!, & Love, Chunibyo và Other Delusions và extending the premise successfully with original nội dung.

Finally, many of their anime sequels tover to lớn be movies in combination with second seasons. Recent examples include Sound! Euphonium and the Free! series. The first season of Violet Evergarden hasn’t adapted everything from the novels, but since the sequel project is going to lớn be a “completely new” work then it logically follows that the Violet Evergarden movie is best suited lớn fill that role.

The Japanese release date for the Violet Evergarden movie was originally scheduled for January 10, 2020. In September 2019, it was announced the film’s release date was being postponed since production work on the movie is still ongoing in the wake of the horrific arson attaông xã on Kyolớn Animation. The premiere was phối for April 20trăng tròn but the global pandemic slowed down their progress on the film.

The anime production committee eventually announced that the Violet Evergarden movie release date was rescheduled khổng lồ September 18, 2020. The committee also thanked anime fans for all of their tư vấn after the tragedy and highlighted how the director & staff are working with all their hearts & strength on the project.

A U.S. release date was not exactly specified, although the movie will also be released internationally in the “same time period” as the Japanese release. Presumably, American audiences will receive sầu an English dub although that detail hasn’t been confirmed yet.

The first video trailer did not show the plot for the Violet Evergarden movie since it only featured clips from the first anime season. The only thing we know for certain about the plot is that it won’t be a recap movie since the Twitter trương mục said the “new Violet Evergarden anime will be completely new.”

Another movie trailer released in February và June 20đôi mươi provided one critical detail: the focus will somehow be on Violet’s love for Major Gilbert.

Therefore, it’s uncertain whether the movie will finish adapting the central theme of Volume 2. Fortunately, even if they bởi, the Violet Evergarden Ever After novel leaves an opening for the second season (for more detailed spoilers see the major spoilers section below).

Violet Evergarden Season 2 Release Date Predictions

As of the last update, Kyokhổng lồ Animation or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the Violet Evergarden Season 2 release date. Nor has the production of a TV sequel been announced.

Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information. In the meantime, it’s possible to lớn speculate about when, or if, the Violet Evergarden Season 2 premiere date will occur in the future.

Considering that the movie is coming out in late 20đôi mươi, it’s possible that the Violet Evergarden Season 2 release date could be scheduled for 2021 or 2022.

The second season has amazing potential for telling new stories through letters

Violet Evergarden’s Ending Explained – Is Major Gilbert Alive?

Major Spoilers Warning: The following should not be read unless you have sầu watched Violet Evergarden Episode 13 và desire potential spoilers for Violet Evergarden Season 2.

Major Gilbert’s last words khổng lồ Violet may have sầu been the central theme khổng lồ the first season, but for much of the audience having Gilbert live on in Violet’s heart is not enough. They want Major Gilbert lớn be alive & Violet khổng lồ be able to say “I love you” in person now that she’s capable of understanding the meaning of the words.

Unfortunately, Major Gilbert does not directly appear in the finale episode because he presumably has been killed in action. However, a mysterious client appears at the over và many anime fans think it might be Gilbert based on the way Violet reacted. So, is Gilbert alive sầu or not?

The answer to lớn the question can’t be given without first considering the central theme of the first season. The story was about Violet’s emotional growth while being independent và overcoming her grief at Gilbert’s loss. Throughout the entire series, Violet has not given up on the hope that Gilbert is alive sầu, but it’s not until the ending that she even recognizes her own feelings as being love sầu.

Therefore, now that Violet has achieved this goal, the central theme of Violet Evergarden Season 2 will probably be reunification with Major Gilbert. Yes, although the anime muddies the waters, it becomes very clear in Volume 2 of the light novels that Gilbert is alive sầu và that he eventually reunites with Violet. Gilbert only lied about his own death out of love sầu for Violet since he desired her khổng lồ forge her own path in life rather than be dependent on following orders. Gilbert’s love sầu for her is so great that he only wants to lớn reunite when she is capable of accepting of his love sầu.

Knowing that revelation does not mean that Violet Evergarden Season 2 can’t have some mysteries lớn be unveiled beside Major Gilbert’s fate. Violet can continue to lớn grow through writing letters & her own origins are a mystery even in the light novels (although the movie may adapt that part of the story).

Volume 4, Violet Evergarden Ever After, also provides an after story featuring Violet & Gilbert together. They have been nurturing their relationship since their reunion, but their work lives as an Army colonel & a popular Autom Memories Doll often means they live sầu apart. What’s more, the world around them is transforming and during this time Violet visits a town called Alfine.

Let’s just hope Kyolớn Animation delivers a new twist on the story that transcends even the books. Stay tuned!
