Sayonara no Asa ni Yakusoku no Hana o Kazarou (Let Us Decorate the Morning of Farewells With Promised Flowers) revolves around Maquia, an orphaned girl from a special family, whose members all cease to age in their mid-teens. Though Maquia’s days are peaceful, she can’t help but feel lonely, all the same.
The quiet times are brought to an abrupt end one day, when the army descends upon Maquia’s family in hopes of obtaining the secret to their longevity. They take Leilia, the most beautiful of the tribe, away, as the boy Maquia secretly fancied vanishes. Though Maquia escapes, she finds that she’s lost everything. Her friends are gone, and she can no longer return home.
With nobody to turn to, she begins to wander the forest. There, she finds Erial, a baby boy who, like Maquia, lost his parents. Their lives are forever entwined, though their relationships may change as Erial grows into a man, and Maquia remains but a teenager.
