Original anime film by Trigger, XFlag opens in Japan on May 24

Toho Animation began streaming the opening action scene for Studio Trigger and XFlag's original anime film Promare on Tuesday.

The film will open in Japan on May 24. Theatergoers will receive character cards with serial codes to grant access to advance streaming of a prequel anime. The all-new 10-minute "Galo-hen" anime will be set one day before the events of the film.

The film stars:

Director Hiroyuki Imaishi and scriptwriter Kazuki Nakashima are teaming again for the new project at Trigger. Trigger and Nakashima are credited with the original work. Shigeto Koyama is in charge of character design and mechanical design, and Sushio (Kill la Kill) is involved as an animator. 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 anime's protagonist is Galo, 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 will be similar in tone to Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann — Imaishi and Nakashima's previous two collaborations.
