Most anime viewers have seen a series or film created by Mari Okada. Her resume is extensive. Okada has done a lot of series compositions for shows like “Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko” and “Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans,” in addition to her own original anime series “Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day” and film “The Anthem of the Heart” (via Anime News Network).
When she made her directorial debut with “Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms” in 2018, she caught the attention of many admirers. It’s a stunning animation film about parenting and sorrow that has received a lot of praise from critics. In fact, “Your Name” director Makoto Shinkai commended Okada’s film on Twitter. It’s no surprise that Okada has been working on another large project, “Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo” (Alice and Therese’s Illusory Factory), given her prodigious career. Fans are enthusiastic about the new film, which features stunning animation and hints at a frightening and possibly strange plot.
The next anime film is shrouded in mystery, but here’s all we know so far.
When will Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo be Available
“Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo” was first shown at Studio MAPPA’s 10th Anniversary Event a few weeks ago. The film, along with a slew of other planned projects from the studio, was a pleasant surprise for fans. MAPPA presented the first trailer as well as some key art, however, there is no official release date for the film yet.
According to CBR, MAPPA is actively working on the film. On the official movie website, Mari Okada stated that they had a long way to go. Aside from “Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo,” the animation company is working on a number of other projects. MAPPA has released a video for Tatsuki Fujimoto’s popular Shonen Jump manga “Chainsaw Man” as well as key art for the final season of “Attack On Titan” and “Takt Op. Destiny,” an anime series based on Bandai Namco’s future game series. With so much going on at the studio, “Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo” is unlikely to arrive before 2022.
Who is in Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo’s Cast
The official cast roster for “Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo” has yet to be published. The identities of the significant individuals seen in the first trailer have likewise remained unknown. However, the next anime film’s production is a different story, and one of the main reasons why fans are looking forward to its release. “Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo” is Mari Okada’s second time behind the camera, according to Crunchyroll.
Tadashi Hiramatsu, the director of “Jujutsu Kaisen,” will act as a sub-director alongside Okada. Some of Okada’s former coworkers from the anime series “A Lull In The Sea” will appear in the film. Yuriko Ishii, the character designer, and animation director will reunite with Okada, as will Kazuki Higashiji, the art director. Masaru Yokoyama, who worked on “Her Blue Sky,” will compose the soundtrack for the film.
What is Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo Plot
There is no official plot synopsis for “Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo” yet. On the movie’s official website, Mari Okada has revealed a few insights regarding the general plot of “Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo.” According to Okada, the film is about boys and girls in a world fighting fate using “love as a weapon.” Okada described it as a “first-love fantasia” story, according to Anime News Network.
While the trailer raises numerous doubts about the plot, it also confirms the director’s major plot points. The trailer shows a probable love triangle. It also depicts youngsters running around a maze-like trainyard and living in what appears to be a little village, although none of it is conventional. The opening scene, for example, depicts three toddlers each covering one or both eyes in front of a speeding train. This could indicate that they are the primary protagonists in the film and something amazing and glowing flies through the frame at one point. Is this an example of the “destiny” they must battle? The closer we get to a release, the more we’ll hopefully discover about Alice to Tres no Maboroshi Kojo.
