Synopsis of Violet Evergarden: The Movie
It's been several years since the end of the Great War. As the radio tower continues to be built in Leidenschaftlich, phones will soon be more relevant, which will cause a decrease in the demand of the "Auto Memory Dolls". Even so, Violet Evergarden continues to gain fame after the constant success of her writing letters. However, she sometimes all that she longs is the only thing she does not appear. Violet Evergarden: The Movie follows Violet while she continues to understand the concept of emotion and the meaning of love. At the same time, she pursues a ray of hope that the man who once told him: "I love you", she can continue alive even after the many years that have passed.
