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
