The Movie, Trailer
The Violet Evergarden light novels written by Kana Akatsuki, is a fan favorite in Japan. The novel won the grand prize in the fifth Kyoto Animation Award program’s novel category in 2014. It was the first time any work has won a grand prize in all three categories: novel, scenario, and manga.
Not only did the Violet Evergarden title topped all three categories, the anime also won Crunchyroll’s best animation award.
The news of this recent delay was announced on Kyoto animation’s official website, and there has yet to be a release date. This is the second postponement because the movie was originally scheduled to release on January 10. The initial delay was a result of the now infamous arson attack on the studio, they needed more time to complete the project.
