2019 Imaishi Hiroyuki film Promare (プロメア) returns to Pittsburgh, April 7.

The 2019 Japanese animated film Promare (プロメア) will return to Pittsburgh on April 7. The distributor summarizes:
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.

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.
It will play locally at the Southside Works Cinema in Japanese with English subtitles. Tickets are available online.
