I am very excited for this. The story seems very interesting and the animation looks amazing. I really want Winter 2018 to come earlier, however, I don't want them to rush the anime.

lmao there's already a rating/rank and it's not even airing yet. I hope KyoAni won't choke on this one.

Unlike normal anime studios, Kyoto animation finishes their anime before the airdate. Its also possible that they've already finished with the entire anime and making final cuts and edits on the other episodes to make it look better xD

It was.. But that doesn't excuse the anime being listed for this season..
Previewing =/= Airing...
"Airing" means when an anime is airing on TV.. Which clearly wasn't the case for Violet Evergarden and there's still a long time left before that happens.. So lol I find this mistake straight out ridiculous.. Specially when it takes the top spot for the top airing anime leaving all the seasonals.. >_>

Hopefully it is fixed soon.. I'm planning watch it in Winter 18 anyways but it just doesn't belong in the airing section..

Apparently its listed as such only for those 10 people that visited anime expo and have seen it ONLY so they could add it to watch list coz if its unaired anime u cant list it as watching.

MAL being MAL ¯_(ใƒ„)_/¯

I don't know you can call it "watching" if the gap between 2 episodes is 6 months.. More like it's "on-hold till I can get my hands on more of this shit" >__>

Aka, it should be just regular PTW with 1 episode checked out.. And I'm pretty sure almost all of the guys who watched the early screening will rewatch episode 1 again when it airs it on TV.. So what's the point of setting it to watching now? -.-

yeah..I think the same thing happened with OPM when it's first episode got pre-screening a month before the actual airing date.

@Robiiii
in any case, @tsubasalover is part of the news team and has nothing to do with it, this is the database moderators' job.
they also should allow the not-aired-yet entries to be added to the watching list so people who watch them before they air on tv would be able to mark them as "currently watching" without the need to change the airing statue in the database.

The first episode of Violet Evergarden and the first three episodes of Mahotsukai no Yome were pre-screened at Anime Expo. MAL usually puts "currently airing" if the anime had it's first episode(s) pre-screened.

That is true, however, I feel that this is what makes KyoAni have such amazing animation, they work on the anime even after it is completed and they could just release it.
