GKIDS has been one of the most successful boutique studios of the last decade, racking up a dozen Oscar nominations for hand-drawn animation films like The Breadwinner and Chico & Rita. But they're getting back into the anime game with Promare, the first film from Japanese animation studio Trigger. The movie focuses on an elite firefighting team as they seek to stop a group of fire-wielding mutants called the Mad Burnish, who are committing arson around the city.
The English-language voice cast is not filled with stunt-casting of big-name stars, but instead with veterans of anime dubs including Billy Kametz (Neon Genesis), Johnny Yong Bosch (Bleach), Crispin Freeman (Mirai) and Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld (Pokémon). The film will have special Fathom events on September 17th and 19th, followed by a limited release on the 20th.
