Violet Evergarden: Recollection is set to be a great addition to the franchise, but where can you watch and stream the anime, and is it on Netflix?

Violet Evergarden has been one of the most beloved anime franchises of recent years, with its beautiful animation and emotional storytelling placing it above a lot of its competition.

The anime was first released in 2018, followed by a 2019 side story film titled Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll and a 2020 sequel film titled Violet Evergarden: The Movie. And now, a new iteration is on the way, that being Violet Evergarden: Recollection, which is a compilation film of the anime series.
