We know that so many of you have fallen in love with Violet Evergarden, and on Friday, 4th of June you’ll be able to prepare yourself for another step in her journey as pre-orders open for our Eternity and the Auto-Memory Doll Collector’s Edition.
This set – in keeping with our release of the TV series – sports a rigid slipcase, within which you’ll find the film on Blu-ray in an Amaray case. Beyond that, this set also includes an A3 poster and a series of five artcards. The piece de resistance however is not one but two books – the first of which is an 80-page book packed with interviews, information and artwork about every aspect of the film, culminating in a set of storyboards complete with commentary from director Haruka Fujita. The second book is also something very special – an all-new Violet Evergarden short story written by original writer Kana Akatsuki translated from the Japanese release, which adds even more emotional context to the contents of the film.
In short, it’s an unmissable addition for Violet Evergarden fans, so don’t miss your chance to pre-order!
