Thirty years ago, a new race of flame-wielding mutants suddenly appeared, destroying a large portion of humanity. These so-called “Burnish” have continued to appear at random, leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake.

The autonomous republic of Promepolis is a thriving nation thanks to the incredible efforts of their leader, Kray Foresight, against the Burnish. A team of firefighters known as the Burning Rescue is tasked with stopping these horrifying monsters, using the most performant technology available thanks to their incredible mechanic Lucia Fex. Galo Thymos is an energetic young man, who considers Foresight his hero for saving his life and is the rescue team's most recent recruit.

A terrorist group calling themselves Mad Burnish has been causing havoc all over the nation. After an encounter with Mad Burnish leader Lio Fotia, Galo sets out on his fated journey to find the truth about these mutants, ultimately leading him to question everything he previously held to be true.

Promare reunites the creative team of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, specifically director Hiroyuki Imaishi and screenwriter Kazuki Nakashima. The film had been in development since 2013 and was first announced at Anime Expo in Los Angeles in 2017.

While Gurren Lagann used drills and Kill la Kill used thread, Imaishi and Nakashima`s new “Burning passion” storyline takes the symbolism to the next logical step, using fire itself (and shapes) to drive the story forward. It`s both boldly new in appearance with it‘s bright colours and liberal use of CG yet immediately recognizable as an Imaishi work. While many haven’t been blown away by the studios output as of late, I think it’s important to realize how little this resembles your standard Trigger release.

This film is their first in the almost 8 years the studio has been ...

Mixed Feelings
Trigger, I think we need to go on a break.

Now, I love the studio's punk-like, devil-may-care attitude. It was so cool to see an upstart animation studio so flagrantly try to play by its own rules, especially a studio with that Gainax pedigree. But over time I've come to realize it's less that I like what the studio has actually made, and more that I just like the attitude of the studio itself. I loved the original Little Witch Academia shorts and Space Patrol Luloco, but everything else has, at best, left me wanting.

And nowhere is that more the case than Promare, perhaps the Triggerest ...

My disappointment is immense and I've lost all hope in Trigger as a studio.

Some background:

I love Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. I love Panty & Stocking. I enjoyed Kill La Kill. From what I saw: I liked Imashi's works. At the very least they were enjoyable. They knew what they were and what they were doing.

Trigger as a whole I wasn't liking.

I thought Kizunavier was a idea-centric story that eventually threw up it's hands and said: "This idea was contrived and stupid." But that was by Mari Okaba. She wrote IBO also. And I hated both shows. So it was her.
