Studio Trigger’s hit anime feature, coming to digital May 5; Blu-Ray and DVD coming May 19.

LOS ANGELES – After a successful North American theatrical run, the 2019 anime feature, Promare, makes its way into your home on May 5 with the digital download and On Demand release from GKIDS and Shout! Factory. Blu-ray + DVD combo pack and standalone DVD follow on May 19

The first feature-length film from the studio Trigger, creators of KILL la KILL, Little Witch Academia and the upcoming B.N.A., and director Hiroyuki Imaishi (GURREN LAGANN), Promare is an action-adventure to stir the soul.

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.

Promare’s all-star English dub voice cast includes Billy Kametz (Neon Genesis Evangelion Series), Johnny Yong Bosch (Bleach, Akira, Might Morphin Power Rangers), Crispin Freeman (Mirai), and Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld (Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!).
