Violet Evergarden (ヴァイオレット・エヴァーガーデン Vaioretto Evāgāden) is a 2018 anime of the studio "Kyoto Animation Co., Ltd." (A Silent Voice) directed by Taichi Ishidate that was broadcasted on Netflix. Violet Evergarden tells the story of Violet, who heard words on the battlefield that she can not forget. These words, whose meaning she does not yet know, came from someone she loved very much. Some time passed on the continent of Telesis and the great war that divided the continent into a north and south half ended, while people could welcome a new generation. The young Violet, once known as a "weapon," left the battlefield to start a new life at CH Postal Service. Her new journey now begins as an "Auto Memories Doll", bringing her into contact with many different people, emotions, and forms of love. All this just to search for the meaning of the words she once heard.
A spin-off film was released in Japan in September 2019 with the title Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll.
The following weapons were used in the anime series Violet Evergarden:
The Luger P08 is used by Major Gilbert in Ep. 08 before and during the battle of Intense Fortress. On the train, his Brother Captain Dietfried Bougainvillea uses a Luger that he offers to Violet in Ep. 12.
Garderik Brigadier General Merkulov uses a Colt M1911 pistol at the end of Ep. 12 and during the opening of Ep. 13 "Auto Memory Doll and "I Love You" during the climax on the train.
Mauser Gewehr 1898
The Leidenschaftlich army's main battle rifle is the Gewehr 98. First seen in Ep. 01 "'I Love You' and Auto Memoir Dolls" during Violet's flashback in which they are equipped with SG 98/05 bayonets. It is widely used in episode 8 while Violet recalls the last encounter with Gilbert during the battle of Intense. In this memory, Violet is seen armed with two G98s during the attack. In Ep. 12 Leidenschaftlich soldiers on the train station are seen with Gewehrs. The country of Leidenschaftlich (which means passionate in German) represents the German Empire.
