Violet Evergarden shows a new 40-second PV

ANIME, NEWS – On August 11th, Kyoto Animation‘s youtube channel uploaded another preview for their upcoming anime series, Violet Evergarden.

Unofficial translation by h4yze, r/anime:

0:00 I want to know… I want to know what love is
0:14 a girl with no emotions
0:22 a girl who doesnt know yet
0:28 what love means
At the end it says
broadcast begins January 2018 x worldwide distribution?????????

In the video description, it details that the anime series will broadcast on January 2018 and there will be a “worldwide distribution.” Not much information in regards to what “worldwide distribution” implies but I assume it means they’re giving rights for certain companies to sell the anime.

A girl with no emotions. A girl who doesn’t know yet what love means.

Hype. (internal screaming)
