“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.”

PROMARE is animated by studio Trigger (SSSS.GRIDMAN) and directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann). Kazuki Nakashima (Kill la Kill) writes the script, Shigeto Koyama (Heroman) draws the character and mechanical designs, with 3DCG animation done by Sanzigen (Arpeggio of Blue Steel) and Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan) composing the music.

PROMARE has been licensed by GKIDS in the United States & Canada with redux screenings planned for December. In Japan, PROMARE is also getting a 4DX release by TOHO.
