The name of the girl who writes on behalf of others is "Violet Evergarden". Four years have passed since the end of the war that had deeply injured people. The world is gradually regaining its peace, life changes with the development of new technologies, and people advancing forward. While holding her feelings for her important person, Violet Evergarden tries to live in this world without that person. One day, a letter is found...[1]


After the funeral of her grandmother Ann, Daisy Magnolia and her parents return to her grandmother's mansion. Daisy, angered at her parents for deciding to return to work right away, rushes out into the garden. She finds a box filled with letters from her great-grandmother to her grandmother. Among the letters, she finds an old newspaper clipping with the photo of a woman: Violet Evergarden, the Auto Memories Doll who helped write these letters.

The story goes back many years before Daisy was born, when the construction of the radio tower is almost finished and the telephone starts becoming popular. Leiden is holding a thanksgiving festival towards the sea. Violet was chosen to write the hymn to the sea that year, which is read out loud by the goddess of the sea, Irma Fliech. After the ceremony, the mayor, who was the one who recommended her for the role, praises her poem. Despite all her accomplishments, including writing the public oath for King Damian's ascension, Violet feels melancholic because of her unresolved feelings for Gilbert.

Violet and the other employees of CH Postal Company run into Erica at a street market. Erica had become Oscar Webster's apprentice and asks them to come and see her first play. Later that night, Violet writes another letter to Gilbert, still hoping that it will reach him one day. On the weekend, she visits Mrs. Bougainvillea's grave to put flowers on it. She runs into Dietfried there. He remains hostile to her and tells her to forget about Gilbert, but she tells him that she can't do that for as long as she lived. After Violet returns to the postal company, she receives a phone call from a young boy who wants to hire a Doll. He asks her to go to the hospital where he is staying.
