Violet Evergarden is based on a Japanese Light novel series. Kana Akatsuki wrote the novel, and Akiko Takase illustrated it. The series bagged the grand prize in the 5th Kyoto Animation Award’s novel category in 2014. This was the first work to win the grand prize in each of the categories that included: a novel, scenario, manga.
The brilliant story and the wide popularity gained by the novel lead to a 13-episode anime television series adaptation by Kyoto Animation. This was released in January 2018. Best Animation at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards (2019) was given to the series. After an OVA released in July 2018, a spin-off film was released in September 2019. The series was a great hit, and the fans are eagerly waiting for the next installment. When will it happen?? Can we watch it soon?? We’ll discuss it here.

Since the anime film creation does not need any fieldwork and includes more of the studio and home-based works, we can expect to see the movie on screen soon. The movie can be expected by the end of this year or in 2021, all depending on how the pandemic outbreak is handled.
