Violet Evergarden Gaiden Anime Gets Screenings Beyond 4 Weeks

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official website for Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll (Violet Evergarden Gaiden: Eien to Jidō Shuki Ningyō), a side story to the Violet Evergarden anime, revealed last Friday that the anime will still have screenings after four weeks. Theatergoers for the anime's fourth week screening will receive a mini shikishi, while theatergoers for the fifth week will receive one of four short stories that were also available for theatergoers for the anime's first to third week.

The new anime's story centers on Isabella, the heir to a noble house. She attends a school for well-groomed young women, under a "contract" with her father. To her, this beautiful place where white camelias bloom is nothing more than a prison. Having resigned all hope and expectations for her future, Isabella meets her new manners teacher, Violet Evergarden.

The anime was originally slated to screen for two weeks only, but was later extended for three weeks, from September 6 through September 26. The anime ranked at #6 in its opening weekend.

The anime held its world premiere as planned at the AnimagiC convention in Mannheim, Germany, which ran on August 3 and 4. The AnimagiC organizers said that they continued the screening "at the express request of the studio."
