GKIDS has previously described 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 Japan on May 24 in 200 theaters, and ranked at #8 in its opening weekend. The film has so far earned a cumulative total of 357,531,500 yen (about US$3.29 million) as of June 9.
