Series synopsis from MyAnimeList:
Dr. Orlando created a doll that can release natural voice called Auto Memories Doll initially for his beloved wife, but is popular among the world, and even an organization to lend it is established. The lady that looks like she’s from a story book with blond hair and emerald eyes would say “This is Violet Evergarden, Auto Memories Doll Service will be there as soon as the customers wish to” with pretty and natural voice.
