posted on by Karen Ressler
The wraparound jacket band for the Violet Evergarden Gaiden (side story) novel, which shipped on Friday, has a teaser for a "new project in progress."
Author Kana Akatsuki and illustrator Akiko Takase's Violet Evergarden novel won the grand prize in the fifth Kyoto Animation Award program's novel category in 2014. The win marked the first time that any work won a grand prize in any of the contest's three categories (novel, scenario, and manga). KA Esuma Bunko published the novel series' two volumes in Japan in December 2015 and December 2016.
Kyoto Animation's television anime adaptation premiered on television in Japan on January 10, and launched on Netflix on January 11 in some territories, including Japan, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Philippines. It will premiere in the United States on April 5.
