Mari Okada's film delayed from January release on Blu-ray and DVD

Anime UK News reports that Anime Limited's home release of Maquia (Sayonara no Asa ni Yakusoku no Hana o Kazarō) has been delayed to March 25. The report quotes an email sent to customers who had pre-ordered the title, which had been previously scheduled for 28 January in Blu-ray, DVD and combo Blu-ray/DVD editions.

The film opened in Japan in February 2018. Anime Limited describes the story:

The people of Iolph have a lifespan of hundreds of years and maintain their teenage appearances for life, but when the peace of this town is shattered by those who want the secret to their longevity for themselves, a young girl named Maquia is forced to escape. Wandering the land alone, upon finding an orphaned baby she chooses to raise him, but as this boy grows up so the difference in their lifespans is thrown into ever-sharper relief.

The film is the directorial debut of anime screenwriter Okada (The Anthem of the Heart, anohana). She also wrote the film's scripts at P.A. Works.
