Netflix to Stream Violet Evergarden Worldwide in Spring 2018

Violet Evergarden Netflix -- Featured

Kyoto Animation announced on Saturday that Netflix will stream its Violet Evergarden anime worldwide. Netflix will stream the series in Japan in January, while the anime is airing on Japanese television. The company will then wait until Spring 2018 to stream the series worldwide.

Violet Evergarden is based on the original novels by Kana Akatsuki (illustrations by Akiko Takase) that were published in December of 2015. The world premiere of the anime’s first episode was held at Anime Expo this July. AnimagiC will hold the European premiere this weekend in Germany.

Anime Expo describes the story:

There are words Violet heard on the battlefield, which she cannot forget. These words were given to her by someone she holds dear, more than anyone else. She does not yet know their meaning.

A certain point in time, in the continent of Telesis. The great war which divided the continent into North and South has ended after four years, and the people are welcoming a new generation.

Violet Evergarden, a young girl formerly known as “the weapon”, has left the battlefield to start a new life at CH Postal Service. There, she is deeply moved by the work of “Auto Memories Dolls”, who carry people’s thoughts and convert them into words.

Violet begins her journey as an Auto Memories Doll, and comes face to face with various people’s emotions and differing shapes of love. All the while searching for the meaning of those words.

Personally, I am extremely bothered by how Netflix waits until the series is finished airing in Japan, before releasing it worldwide. What do you think about this? Let us know!
