Galo and the Burning Rescue Fire Department protect their city by fending off the Burnish, a group of people who have a mutation that allows them to create fire from nothing. To Galo and his friends, the Burnish are nothing more than a threat to humanity—they're the bad guys, and their leader, Lio, must be stopped.

So visually striking! The blending of 2d and 3d animation makes the action so much more dynamic and interesting to look at, and offers a lot to flesh out the complex worldbuilding.

Promare's fun characters, stylish animation, and constant escalation make for a great first film from Studio Trigger.

TheWrap by Carlos Aguilar

Think of Promare as a vast feast with too many flavorful offerings to taste in one seating, and where all the intricate details of how everything was put where it is are less important than the overall sensory overload you’ll experience.

Los Angeles Times by Charles Solomon

After seeing every leaf on every bush in so many features, it’s fun to sit back and enjoy a film that pushes its look and palette beyond mere reality to create a fantasy world that could exist only in animation.

The Film Stage by Eli Friedberg

This is Imaishi’s world. Every cut, gesture, and line of dialogue here is punctuated by maximum comic book-style exclamation points. Every spectacular action feat is escalated several different times over the top, crossing from coolness through self-parody and back to coolness in a way that’s bound to make the attention-deficient among us stand up and cheer.

RogerEbert.com by Glenn Kenny

There’s a lot of crunch and dazzle here. While the overall tone is pitched to a teen demographic, the creative energy and the execution on display is consistently engaging.

The Telegraph by Robbie Collin

The film is nearly two hours long and passes in what feels like 45 seconds. It is wildly entertaining and blaringly ridiculous, and I want to watch it every night for a week.

Slant Magazine by Steven Scaife

Promare often feels like a maximalist season finale trimmed of any build-up, a climax that’s outstanding to watch yet empty beyond its pure spectacle.
