If you’ve ever watched Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, The Anthem of the Heart, or Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms then you know Mari Okada as the anime queen of tearjerkers, and now she’s got another one lined up as studio MAPPA’s first original feature film!
MAPPA’s 10th anniversary stage event on Sunday closed out the show with the first teaser trailer and visual for “Alice to Therese no Maboroshi Kojo” (Alice and Therese’s Illusion Factory).
The title’s romanization and English translation are yet to be confirmed.
Joining Mari Okada is Tadashi Hiramatsu as assistant director, Yuriko Ishii as character designer and animation director, and Kazuki Higashiji as art director, who all collaborated on Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms at studio P.A.Works.
Also joining the team is Masaru Yokoyama, who worked with Okada on Her Blue Sky, as music composer.
