That's Okada Mari alright. I'll eat her bullshit up whenever.

0:50 Dramatically shows her pants.
And naturally, the only spoken line in the trailer is a ridiculously agonizing scream.
Does Mari Okada realize how absurd she is?

Maqui was one my all time favorite anime films so definitely looking forward to this!

I was already watching because of Okada and the Maquia animation team, but the fact that the girl lures the boy by showing her pantsu to him and that it ends with zetsubou just adds to it.

When it was announced, I thought this was going to be a fantasy anime, but it turns out it's not entirely a fantasy anime?

MAPPA and Mari Okada teaming-up for a Mari Okada production is...going to be something.

Really curious exactly what the plot is.

The marketing could be intentionally misleading. Everyone thought Maquia was going to be a romance before the actual plot was revealed to be about motherhood. So for all we know, this new movie could be doing the same thing; withholding actual info about the plot for the sake of generating interest.

This is the most Mari Okada-esque trailer I've ever seen, and I'm 100% onboard. Rarely have I ever been disappointed by her work.

Honestly, the anime/manga industry needs dozens of more prolific female screen-writers.

Looks like a sekai-kei story a la A Place Promised in Our Early Days and Voices of a Distant Star, where there are world shattering events going on in the background, but that's not what the story is about.
