On Tuesday, the new trailer for the side story to Violet Evergarden, titled Violet Evergarden Gaiden: Eien to Jido Shuki Ningyo, or, Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll, began streaming on the project’s official website.

The side story anime will be about an heiress named Isabella who has entered a contract with her father to go to a finishing school for young ladies. Isabella feels trapped at this school, and just as she gives up hope, she meets Violet Evergarden, who turns out to be her manners teacher. The trailer features music by Minori Chihara.

The animation for the new project is just as stunning as the original series. I remember seeing the trailers for the original, leading up to its release, and being absolutely blown away by the beauty, and this new side story trailer has the same effect.

The run for the new anime has changed from what was originally two weeks, to three weeks, from September 6 – 26. The project was directed by Haruka Fujita, who is also working on a Violet Evergarden movie, which is slated to premier on January 10, 2020.
