On October 23, ELEVEN ARTS anime studio announced Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms will be receiving the blu-ray home release treatment, coming to the US starting February 5, 2019.
The critically acclaimed film directed and written by Mari Okada will include a regular Blu-ray/DVD combo and deluxe edition. In the deluxe edition, bonus features include an 80-page booklet, a short written scenario by Mari Okada, a 3-panel display box art from Character Designer Akihiko Yoshida and more.
Mari Okada describes the show:
“‘Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms’ is what I’ve always wanted to write as a writer. I feel great pleasure as well as pressure to be able to get involved in all of the works beyond script. The interweaving of people coming together, and their eventual breakup:
It is a story onto which I hope everyone will be able to superimpose themselves.”
Earlier this month, ELEVEN ARTS and SHOUT! FACTORY announced their joint distribution alliance. As evident, Maquia is one of the first titles to come out from the distribution partnership.
Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms is now available for pre-order.
