Maquia Anime Film's Deluxe Blu-ray Lined Up for March 2019 Release

Movie to be packed with bonus features, booklet, and more


Mari Okada's Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms is a special film, and it's getting an equally special release on Blu-ray in the form of a deluxe edition. This version packs the film with additional bonus features, an 80-page booklet, a short scenario written by Mari Okada, a three-panel display box featuring art by character designer Akihiko Yoshida, and an inner cover with art by character designer and art director Yuriko Ishii.

And a message from writer/director Mari Okada: 

“ 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.”


Those who just want the standard Blu-ray and DVD release will be able to pick that up on February 5, 2019. Shout! Factory and ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio's combo pack includes trailers, TV spots, and a Making of Maquia featurette.
