NEWS – Kyoto Animation recently released a new promotional video for their upcoming anime series, “Violet Evergarden.” The video does not show new information but we do get to see more of the studio’s stunning work.
“I will run as fast as I can to wherever my customer desires. I am the Auto Memories Doll, Violet Evergarden.” – Violet Evergarden (at the end of the video)
There is still no exact date announced for Violet Evergarden so we will have to wait longer. Considering the animation quality of the promotional videos done by Kyoto Animation so far, it would not be too surprising that the series would still be in the works. After all, the level of quality has to remain consistent otherwise the whole series would be bad.
As far as the little information I have gathered regarding the anime series, here is a brief synopsis:
Auto Memories Doll.
It’s been quite a while since that name caused a fuss. Originally invented by Professor Orland solely for his beloved wife, Auto Memories Dolls eventually spread out into the world, and a machine that allows people to rent out the dolls was also created.
“I will run as fast as I can to wherever my customer desires. I am the Auto Memories Doll, Violet Evergarden.”
A girl who almost appears to have popped out of a fairy tale with her blonde hair and blue eyes said this with her inorganic beauty and sweet voice.
The promotional videos, so far, were worked by the following staff:
Director/Storyboard: Taichi Ishidate (Kyoukai no Kanata)
Character Design/Animation Director: Akiko Takase
Key Animators: Nami Iwasaki, Fumio Tada, Kohei Okamura, Shinpei Sawa, Nobuaki Maruki, Tatsuya Sato, Miku Kadowaki
In-Between Animation Check: Hiroko Kuroda
Color Design: Yūka Yoneda
Special Effects: Rina Miura
Background Art: Mikiko Watanabe
3D Art: Joji Unoguchi
Director of Digital Composite: Kōhei Funamoto
3D Computer Graphics: Tetsuro Umetsu
It is still unclear whether these people will be working the anime series itself.
