posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Black Butler manga creator Yana Toboso regularly draws fan art of works she likes. Toboso just revealed a new fan illustration on Twitter on Monday to share her favorite character from Trigger's Promare anime film: Lio Fotia

Lio is the main antagonist of the film and is the leader of Mad Burnish. He stars in his own short prequel anime distributed to theatergoers via a code.

Toboso is working on more fan art from the film and shared a teaser on Monday.

GKIDS announced on Thursday that it has licensed the film for release in North America. The company will hold a premiere event for the film on September 17 and 19, and the film will then open in select theaters on September 20. GKIDS describes the film:

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.

The film opened in 200 theaters in Japan on May 24, and ranked at #8 in its opening weekend. The film has earned a cumulative total of 494,277,000 yen (about US$4.55 million) as of June 16. Anime Expo announced on Tuesday that this year's convention will host the North American premiere on July 5

Toboso's past fan art has featured works like My Hero Academia, Fate/Grand Order, and Kuroko's Basketball.
