What better time to be an anime fan in the UK and Ireland?! I am in my early 40’s but one of the teens in 1990s when fandom started to grow and be noticed by the mainstream media. Now we regularly next to Studio Ghibli films, thanks to All The Anime we now see the best of Anime in our cinemas.
Next month Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms will get a cinematic release. A touching tapestry of the meetings and partings in life, Mari Okada’s (The Anthem Of The Heart) directorial debut is a profound human drama and a stunning record of an emotional adventure.
An intimate human story set atop a fantasy stage, a heartfelt tribute to emotions most will experience and a perfect example of the creative renaissance sweeping Japan since the release of Your Name.
The film made its international debut at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival. The same fate Naoko Yamada’s breathtaking A Silent Voice received, could success strike twice?
All The Anime Has sent us the new UK Trailer plus a new Poster to celebrate the upcoming release…
The people of Iolph are known for two things: their youthful longevity and peaceful lives weaving a tapestry. When that is disturbed and their home is 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.
Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms will get a limited UK and Irish cinema release from 27th June (the USA will be 20th July). Buy your tickets here.
