Hyped!

They picked some solid staff for this so far and the quality (visual wise) looks great. From what I heard, the story follows more of an episodic structure so it'll be curious to see how they plan to adapt this.

After reading the news and the staff I'm actually looking forward to it as hell :3 especially with the director and the series composition which are pretty nice. Also, no wonder I also got the jist about the PV feeling fluid like Kyoukai no Kanata and just seeing the staff gives me some conclusion to it ^^

But there wasn't really an established date in the first place though until I guess a bit recent around this month or so? I'm pretty sure there wasn't any o.O

Summer would have been too damn early and Fall would be a bit of an issue, Winter seems like the right choice.

There wasn't. Rumor has it that it was going to be 2018 but it wasn't confirmed until now.

Yeah thought it would be the case. But yeah if its 2018 then it makes the most sense in my honest opinion.

Absolutely looking forward to this. Coincidentally, I was rewatching the trailers for it again yesterday.

Ishikawa Yui's second KyoAni role and now as the main character. Man, I have Violet in my phone's wallpaper for more than a year now! I fell in love with her the moment I saw the teaser last year!

Sky's the limit for them. Absolutely best studio when it comes to animation and level of details. What most of the other studios can't even dream of achieving in featured films, KyoAni keeps on setting the benchmark for themselves in TV anime. When I saw Clannad After Story, I thought it was impossible. Then came Hyouka and I was like NO WAY and most recently Hibike! Euphonium shattered everything from them thus far. Going by the teasers, I am sure Violet Evergarden will set yet another benchmark.

Oh, no worries! I have yet to find anyone who have read it and has been let down. The episodic nature is what makes me excited. Some of my favourite anime are episodic. And knowing that this is an award winning literature makes me more excited.

Feels like KyoAni are overcompensating now after pushing out quite a few anime that some of the staff probably are ashamed of as artists. I hope this has some soul to it, and not just polish.

At the very least, I can appreciate a fantasy setting that isn't the standard copypasta 99.6% of fantasy anime are, but then again, Victorian is pretty overused too.

Idk, I heard pretty mixed reviews in reddit.

I'll keep my expectations in check despite all the hype I'm seeing in this thread. The last thing I want is to get excited for this because of everyone hyping it, only to be let down by a subpar adaptation (looks at Rewrite).

Damn, its about time.

Seriously though, I'm not the most hyped about this, but I sure am happy to see a release date. KyoAni will probably give us at least one cours after all that hyping they did, so it should be fun. ^^

The soundtrack already seems amazing. The animation from the CM's was amazing as well. Now the only thing worrying me is my hatred towards episodic things. Either way looking forward to it just for the Animation and Music alone.

Seems kinda late, but it's still something. I am so hyped for this. They got really good staff picks, and even Ishikawa Yui as Violet sounds like a really good experience. I can't wait to see how this turns out.

Eh, I'm not keeping my hopes too high. Sure, the technical stuff is definitely gonna be top-notch, but I'm worried whether it won't be unfunny or just dull like some other of KyoAni's LN adaptations @_@... Time will tell.

wish the series animation will be like the pv
Since Koe no Katachi has a very high rating her on MAL, rated by nearly 100k users currently should we try to upvote the movie on the worlds largest database related to films? This movie only has around 4,5k votes at the moment. Let's all vote and make the rating higher?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5323662/

if we make it more popular it will raise more money so it will support the anime industry and make anime more popular between all the peoples since IMDb is not an anime site
so more quality anime will be made

It won't. It's unsustainable.
I think it is just to promote the novels.

However, reading the novel I know they will do an amazing job with the visuals, backgrounds and stuff.
I mean, it won't be like the pv, but it still will be one of the best animations ever. Thats what I believe.
