Long ago the “Auto Memories Doll” was born. Professor Orland, an influential figure in the printing industry, invented a new type of printing machine for his wife Molly, so that she could write novels after she had lost her eyesight. The machine was given the appearance of a petite lovely doll.
Putting his heart and hopes into it, the professor named it “Auto Memories Doll”.
Eventually, Auto Memories Dolls became widespread, supporting the lives of many.
Now, the term is applied to women whose work is to put thoughts into words, either for those who cannot write or on behalf of others.
This story is about a young girl, Violet Evergarden, and how she connects people’s hearts as an Auto Memories Doll living at the turning point of a generation. (Synopsis from WOW Japan)
