Promare is a 2019 Japanese animated film co-produced by Trigger and XFLAG. The film was directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by Kazuki Nakashima.
It has been 30 years since a cataclysmic event that set half the world on fire. This caused a mutation in the human gene creating the Burnish – a race that can create and control fire on will.
The Burning Rescue rose up to put out the fires caused by troublesome Burnish. Galo, the protagonist, is a hot-headed newbie in the Burning Rescue who encounters the leader of Mad Burnish and gets caught up in something much bigger than he expected as the story unfolds.Originally Written By Epic Dope
