The official website for Studio Trigger and XFlag's original anime collaboration project Promare began streaming the anime's first promotional video on Friday. The video reveals that the project is a theatrical film that will open in Japan in 2019.

The website also revealed more staff members and a teaser visual (below). Trigger and Kazuki Nakashima are credited with the original work. Tomotaka Kubo (Mary and The Witch's Flower) is the art director, and Saishi Ichiko is in charge of logo design. Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill) is composing the music. SANZIGEN Animation Studio is handling the 3DCG animation. XFlag is credited with production, and TOHO will distribute the film.

The tagline on the below visual reads, "The world ablaze."

Director Hiroyuki Imaishi and scriptwriter Kazuki Nakashima are teaming again for the new project at Trigger. Shigeto Koyama is in charge of character design and mechanical design, and Sushio (Kill la Kill) is involved as an animator.

The anime's protagonist is named Galo (seen with blue hair in image above), who is a new recruit in a rescue team. The anime will have mechs called "Matoi-Tech," named after the "matoi" banners that Edo-period firefighting units used.

The staff previously mentioned that the anime be similar in tone to Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann — Imaishi and Nakashima's previous two collaborations.
