Netflix has revealed that a compilation of the Violet Evergarden anime series, titled Violet Evergarden: Recollections, will begin streaming on December 15.

It is unknown if Violet Evergarden: Recollection will be similar to the compilation that aired in Nippon TV’s Kinyou Roadshow (Friday Roadshow) movie program block in late 2021.

Violet Evergarden was released on Netflix in 2018. It was later followed by a 2019 side story film titled Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll and a 2020 sequel film titled Violet Evergarden: The Movie.

Netflix describes the series as:

The war is over, and Violet Evergarden needs a job. Scarred and emotionless, she takes a job as a letter writer to understand herself and her past.

Taichi Ishidate (Violet Evergarden: The Movie, Beyond the Boundary) directed the Violet Evergarden series with Reiko Yoshida (Deaimon) as series composer, Akiko Takase (Violet Evergarden: The Movie) as character designer, Haruka Fujita (Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll director) as series episode director, and Takaaki Suzuki (Warlords of Sigrdrifa) as world designer. Other staff include the late Mikiko Watanabe (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Season 1) as art director, Yuka Yoneda (Free! The Final Stroke) as color designer, Kouhei Funamoto (Tsurune – Hajimari no Issha –) as photography director, and Evan Call (Josee, the Tiger and the Fish) as music composer.

Meanwhile, the cast includes Yui Ishikawa as Violet Evergarden, Takehito Koyasu as Claudia Hodges, Daisuke Namikawa as Gilbert Bougainvillea, Aya Endou as Cattleya Baudelaire, Kouki Uchiyama as Benedict Blue, Minori Chihara as Erica Brown, and Haruka Tomatsu as Iris Cannary.

The anime is inspired by the 2015-2020 light novel series written by Kana Akatsuki and illustrated by Takase, which is published under Kyoto Animation‘s KA Esuma Bunko label. The book series has four volumes including a side story.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, so he spent a few years, starting from his college days, doing so. He still likes video games, but now focuses on writing anime-related news content and the occasional review for Anime Trending. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive.
