Kyoto Animation Co. has decided to release its new film in September as scheduled, with many fans welcoming the move and voicing support for the company that lost dozens of its production staff in an arson attack last month.

“Violet Evergarden Gaiden: Eien to Jido Shuki Ningyo,” a spin-off of the “Violet Evergarden” anime, will be screened at 73 theaters nationwide from Sept. 6 to 26, the film’s official Twitter account said in a post Saturday. The film’s title translates as “Violet Evergarden Side Story: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll.”
