From May 3 to July 10, 2022, Garden Museum Hiei in Kyoto will hold a joint exhibition with Kyoto Animation’s anime series Violet Evergarden entitled “A Story of Flowers and Letters”.
This is the first time an anime series and a Japanese outdoor recreation facility have collaborated.
The press release writes,
“Garden Museum Hiei, a French Impressionism-themed garden, sometimes looks amazing with its garden that changes colors with the seasons combined with the magnificent natural scenery of Mount Hiei. These scenes match the image of the landscape depicted in the Violet Evergarden anime, leading to the decision to hold this joint event.”

Violet Evergarden Anime Story Summary
Violet Evergarden is a coming-of-age contemporary anime series produced by Kyoto Animation, a well-known Japanese animation company. It was released worldwide on Netflix in 2018.
It is based on Kana Akatsuki’s light novel series of the same name, written and drawn by Akiko Takase.
In 2018, 13 episodes of the anime series aired, and in 2019, the first anime spin-off Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll was produced. Additionally, Violet Evergarden: The Movie, the anime sequel, 2020 was well received by fans.
Violet Evergarden Movie: A Touching Finale
Violet Evergarden The film serves as a nice conclusion to the series. It can also serve as a moving narrative for newcomers to the series, but it’s not without its flaws.
This new feature film concludes the previous television series. Viewers can learn about the events of the past while gaining a glimpse into the world of automatic puppets. These dolls can be used both as military tools and as tools to positively impact the lives of those around them.
The feature-length story does a good job of weaving flashbacks into the film without it feeling forced or forced. This makes it easy for new fans of the franchise to get to grips with.
While there are a few characters that fans of the franchise might feel don’t get enough screen time, the final chapter manages to create a dramatic storyline. This storyline effectively uses the majority of the characters while also rewarding fans of the series for watching the original episodes.
Violet Evergarden The Film is a tribute to anime lovers. It does an amazing job of placating both longtime fans and newcomers to the series.
Even if it’s a little rough around the edges, it’s a movie well worth your time whether you’re familiar with the series or not.
