Do the impossible, see the invisible! Er… whatever Promare’s catch phrase is!
Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account for Studio Trigger’s Promare opened its doors. The site includes a key visual and trailer, along with the first staff members attached to the project.
We break the details down below.
The 45-second promo opens with footage from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, before opening to a brief series of clips set to fast-paced music. Characters from an organization known as the “Prome Polis” rush into action.
Several shots linger on a blue-haired individual, and a being of pure darkness.
The image features the blue-haired warrior standing before the backdrop of a city. To its left, part of a grinning visage can be seen.
A series of sketches from the team were also revealed, which you can check out below.
Hiroyuki Imaishi (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill) will direct the project, with Shigeto Koyama (Heroman) providing character designs. Kazuki Nakashima (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill) is writing the screenplay.
