Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms

  • Animation | Drama
  • Rated NA

Though only 15, Maquia knows she will live for centuries without aging past
adolescence. She belongs to the Iorph, a clan of ageless beings just like her. Maquia's
elders warn her not to fall in love with anyone outside their realm, lest she wish to
encounter true loneliness in the end. But fate pushes Maquia out into the mortal world
one night, when an invading territory separates her from the clan. There she discovers
an orphaned baby, Erial, and takes him in as her own child. From this point, Maquia will
suffer extreme heartbreak in the name of motherhood, as she watches Erial grow and
seeks to reconnect with her lost Iorph friends, all torn apart by the cruel world of
Mesate.
