Lantis has posted two three-minute music videos for TRUE‘s 12th single song “Sincerely” and Minori Chihara‘s 24th single song “Michishirube” (guidepost), the OP and ED theme songs for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Kana Akatsuki’s fantasy light novel series Violet Evergarden. Both singles are set to be released simultaneously on January 31, 2018. Chihara, best known as Yuki Nagato in the Haruhi Suzumiya series, is also cast as one of the auto memory dolls, Erica Brown.
