The OVA episode of Violet Evergarden that shipped with its fourth Blu-ray release in Japan, is coming to both Japanese and U.S. Netflix on October 4. The announcement was made in a video presentation that also included announcements for The Seven Deadly Sins: The Revival of Commandments and Castlevania Season 2.
Violet Evergarden aired on Japan’s Netflix back in January but didn’t make it to U.S. Netflix until April. The anime series’ popularity inspired an animated movie which is slated to release worldwide in January 2020.
MyAnimeList.net describes the story of Violet Evergarden as follows:
The Great War finally came to an end after four long years of conflict; fractured in two, the continent of Telesis slowly began to flourish once again. Caught up in the bloodshed was Violet Evergarden, a young girl raised for the sole purpose of decimating enemy lines. Hospitalized and maimed in a bloody skirmish during the War’s final leg, she was left with only words from the person she held dearest, but with no understanding of their meaning.
Recovering from her wounds, Violet starts a new life working at CH Postal Services after a falling out with her new intended guardian family. There, she witnesses by pure chance the work of an “Auto Memory Doll,” amanuenses that transcribe people’s thoughts and feelings into words on paper. Moved by the notion, Violet begins work as an Auto Memory Doll, a trade that will take her on an adventure, one that will reshape the lives of her clients and hopefully lead to self-discovery.
