Learn what it takes to bring incredible anime action heroes to life in a new featurette from GKIDS with the English-language voice cast of Promare — the top-grossing original anime of 2019, produced by Japan’s Studio TRIGGER. The video featuring Billy Kametz, Erica Lindbeck, Neil Kaplan, Johnny Yong Bosch, Yuri Lowenthal and Matt Mercer drops as Promare launches on Blu-ray and DVD in partnership with Shout! Factory.
In addition to the standard on-disc and digital release, GKIDS is prepping a Promare Collector’s Edition, featuring new special packaging, as well as added bonus features exclusive to the Collector’s Edition. The Collector’s Edition is being produced in partnership with Anime Limited, the film’s U.K. distributor, and will be available at a suggested retail price of $64.99 on August 4.
The first feature-length film from the acclaimed Studio TRIGGER, creators of the hit series KILL la KILL and Little Witch Academia, and director Hiroyuki Imaishi (GURREN LAGANN, KILL la KILL), Promare uses a bold cel-shaded visual style to tell a blistering action-adventure story, and is the spiritual successor to many of director Imaishi’s former works.
Synopsis: Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins.
