As the radio tower in Leidenschaftlich continues to be built, telephones will soon become more relevant, causing a decrease in demand for “Auto Memory Dolls.” Even so, Violet Evergarden continues to gain fame after her consistent success writing letters. However, sometimes the only thing you crave is the one thing that doesn’t appear.

At the same time, she pursues a ray of hope that the man who once told her, “I love you,” can still be alive even after the many years that have passed.
