Promare was announced at the 2017 Anime Expo on July 2, 2017 as an original anime project co-produced by Trigger and XFLAG that has been in production for over four years,[11] later revealed to be a film in October 2018. Hiroyuki Imaishi and Kazuki Nakashima, both whom worked together previously on Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, are directing and writing the film, respectively.

Nakashima and Trigger are credited for the original work, with Shigeto Koyama providing the character and mechanical designs, Sanzigen animating the 3DCG sequences and Hiroyuki Sawano composing the music. The film's logo is designed by Saishi Ichiko and Tomotaka Kubo is serving as art director. Sushio, who designed the characters and served as chief animation director on Kill la Kill, is involved as one of the film's animators.[12]


Promare premiered in Japan on May 24, 2019, with Toho distributing the film.[6][8] On June 13, 2019, GKIDS acquired the film for North American distribution and will release the movie in theaters on September 20, 2019.[13][14][15] The anime is dubbed by NYAV Post.[16]

To promote the upcoming European release, Trigger partnered with Goodsmile Racing and Black Falcon team to field a Mercedes-AMG GT3 with Promare livery in the 2019 Spa 24 Hours endurance race.[17] The car started on pole position and finished 3rd.[18]

In the United Kingdom and Ireland, Anime Limited acquired the film, who will premiere the film at Scotland Loves Anime in Glasgow on October 13, 2019,[19] and a special screening in Edinburgh on October 19, 2019 with director Hiroyuki Imaishi, creative producer Hiromi Wakabayashi, and character designer Shigeto Koyama.[20] In Australia and New Zealand, Madman Entertainment will premiere the film at Madman Anime Festival Melbourne on September 14, 2019.[21]

Reception Box office

Promare in its opening weekend ranked at number 8 in the Japanese box office, grossing ¥41.4 million in its first three days.[22] In its second weekend, the film dropped to number 10, grossing ¥58.8 million and a cumulative total of ¥231.3 million.[23] In its third weekend, the film dropped out of the top 10 and accumulated ¥65.3 million. As of September 3, 2019, the film has grossed a total of over ¥1.1 billion.[2]

Critical response

Matt Schley of The Japan Times gave the film 4 stars out of 5, praising the storytelling but having some criticism for elements of the transition between 2D and 3D animation.[24]

Writing for Anime News Network, Kim Morrissy gave Promare a Grade A. Comparing it to previous works by Trigger such as Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill Morrissy claimed that: "Promare is a refinement of the Trigger formula to the point where I honestly believe it has outdone the classics that inspired it."[25]
