According to the Kyoto Shimbun, many of the families previously said by the police to have denied consent told the newspaper that they had not denied consent and one family had even been requesting that the names be released.

The Violet Evergarden The Movie's January 2020 release has been delayed.

The separate side-story film, Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll, opened in theaters in Japan on Friday. It was originally planned to screen for only two weeks but will now run for three weeks.

At the strong request from the director of the film, Haruka Fujita, every single staff member was listed in the credits including staff with less than a full year's worth of experience at KyoAni. Presumably the names of the victims are also included.

The condition of the arsonist has been changed to stable but he is still unable to communicate verbally.

Some idiot has threatened Visual Arts with a KyoAni-style attack.
