1 WORD. 3 LETTERS. RHYMES WITH “VEX.”
When Kazusa enters high school, she joins the Literature Club, where she leaps from reading innocent fiction to diving into the literary classics. But these novels are a bit more…adult than she was prepared for. Between euphemisms like fresh dewy grass and pork stew, crushing on the boy next door, and knowing you want to do that one thing before you die–discovering your budding sexuality is no easy feat! As if puberty wasn’t awkward enough, the club consists of a brooding writer, the prettiest girl in school, an agreeable comrade, and an outspoken prude. Fumbling over their own discomforts, these five teens get thrown into chaos over three little letters: S…E…X…!
“A coming-of-age story…centered on believably nerdy and hormonal teens. I love all these dorks… Painfully relatable and pulls no punches, both hilarious and incredibly upsetting.” -Anime News Network
Praise for Mari Okada’s Maquia “Stirring, sentimental, stunning… exquisite in every way… the film’s passing pleasures are so rich that we don’t even notice how deep Okada has driven her storytelling dagger until she pulls it out in the end, and the tears come.” -Variety
“Okada is clearly a talent to watch.” -Charles Solomon, Los Angeles Times
“Maquia showcases [Okada’s] ability to depict complex relationships and project delicate character arcs… Sweeping fantasy meets heart-wrenching intimacy.” -Hollywood Reporter
