We’re just days away from MCM London Comic Con and we’ve got special news to share with you that’s hot off the press, so to speak. Today we’re delighted to announce that this Saturday at the event there will be a UK Premiere screening of the first episode of the upcoming anime series from Kyoto Animation, Violet Evergarden.
The series doesn’t start airing until early year and you’ll be able to watch it on Netflix in 2018, but you can catch the UK Premiere of the first episode in the Platinum Theatre at 1:30PM on Saturday, 28th October at MCM London Comic Con this weekend! Please note the screening will be in Japanese with English subtitles.
ABOUT VIOLET EVERGARDEN
Synopsis: “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.
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 but she searches to find it.”
Production Studio: Kyoto Animation (A Silent Voice, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Hyouka)
Director: Taichi Ichidate (director of Beyond the Boundary and episode director on Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid, K-On!, Clannad)

Check out some Japanese preview videos below –
Worth noting, and likely to confirm what some suspect given this news, that we (Anime Limited / All The Anime) can confirm that we have acquired the home video rights to this series. But we want to stress that given the series has not started airing in Japan yet – and won’t be until early next year – so more than likely don’t expect to hear any news about our release until late 2018 at the absolute earliest.
We also want to make note of the fact this screening is not part of the current “World Tour” for the series; this is only a screening of the first episode specifically and no guests will be present.
