Somewhere, Under a Starry Sky (どこかの星空の下で, Doko ka no Hoshizora no Shita de?) is the sixth episode of the Violet Evergarden anime adaptation. It aired on February 15, 2018.


Violet travels to the country of Astrea to work with transcribers copying damaged manuscripts. Her partner Leon has a past not unlike hers.


Violet, along with a number of other Dolls, arrives at the Shaher Astronomical Headquarters in order to help the scholars make copies of a number of rare books. Violet is paired with a young scholar named Leon, who initially dislikes her and Dolls in general. However, he is impressed with how quickly she works and begins to soften when he sees that she doesn't care about his background or upbringing as an orphan. He invites Violet to view Alley's Comet with him, which only appears once every two hundred years, and she accepts. While the two stargaze, Leon explains that his father was also a scholar at the Observatory but disappeared on an expedition. His mother then left home to search for him and never returned either, causing Leon to resent them and the concept of love. Violet then tells Leon that she has no known blood relatives, but is completely devoted to Gilbert. It's then that Leon realizes Violet is in love with Gilbert. The next morning, Violet is preparing to leave now that her job is complete. Leon sees her off and tells her that instead of waiting at the Observatory for his parents to return, he'll start traveling the world like Violet to go look for them. As Violet leaves, Leon wonders if he'll ever encounter her again.
