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.

A Review of Promare:

Six thousand people sat and stood in wait for twelve hours for this movie. They got more than what they came for.

When the movie started I remembered just how good Kill La Kill was; not overall, but at the beginning. You know, the first five minutes where the entire setup and exposition of the show just blows the skin off of your face and you fly backwards down a giant obsessively beautiful mountain of detail all to fly forward on the ground into a close up of Ryuko's face...

Ryuko: "So this is Honouji Academy..."
Audience: *gargling noises*

That was pretty good... Promare made read more

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.

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 read more

Story: 7/10

The story is just 2 hours of studio Trigger clowning on themselves. With this movie, it's like they've become completely self aware. They're all but parodying themselves more and more with each subsequent work they put out, and strangely, they're better off for it. Yes, that's right. Studio Trigger is at its best when it's not taking itself too seriously. Remember Little Witch Academia and Darling in The Franxx? Remember how miserable and boring they were to watch? Yeah. Promare is the antithesis to all that. It's Imaishi's wake-up slap to Trigger, showcasing what made Gurren Lagann such a timeless classic. "Hey, you remember read more
