Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms hits the big screen

Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms hits the big screen

Dan has been writing for UK Anime Network since 2013, and has been the site's Anime Editor since August 2017.


Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms marks Mari Okada’s directorial debut. Okada is best known as a screenwriter, working on such titles as The Anthem of the Heart and Nagi no Asukara (A Lull in the Sea). We are quite fond of some of her previous works here at UK Anime towers, so hold high hopes for this new film. Especially when combined with studio P.A. Works’ (Sakura Quest, The Eccentric Family) trademark visual prowess.

The film will be premiering at Glasgow Film Festival 4th March, 2018 as part of Glasgow Film Theatre's annual event. Before spreading it's wings and heading to select cinemas nationwide later in March. You can catch the synopsis and trailer for the film below.

Synopsis: The people of Iolph are known for two things: their youthful longevity and peaceful lives weaving tapestry. When that is disturbed and their home thrown into chaos by those believing that their blood gifts longer life, Maquia loses not only her friends, but a place to return to. Lost in both mind and body, she stumbles into a dark forest and happens upon Aliel, an orphaned baby boy. Together, the two embark on an emotional journey of the bond between the ageless and the mortal.
