Maquia review: Adoption Drama Anime | AndersonVision
Maquia is another one of those films that I'm using to push myself out of my safe zones. Basically, I don't really care for anime. What I do enjoy are heart-breaking takes on classic fairy tales. This time, it's a retelling of the Little Mermaid but about the soul crushing reality of aging! Where else can you find a lovely tale of a fantasy woman adopting a human baby. She raises the young boy in man's world with the crushing realities of being a single mom. Every 10 minutes, they cry!
