Message from Taichi Ishidate:
"I appreciate that 'Violet Evergarden' will be broadcast on Friday Roadshow. We have re-edited all 13 episodes that were originally produced as a TV series as the Friday Roadshow special edition. For those who have seen it once, and for those who haven't seen it yet, this is the beginning of the life of a woman named Violet Evergarden. I hope that as many people as possible will be able to see that moment. I will be very happy if Violet's journey can give something positive in the lives of those who see it. The motif of this series is letter. And just as we put our feelings into letters, all the staff also put a lot of our feelings into this anime. If you have time, please take a look."
