Anime films criminally don't get the attention they rightfully deserve. Promare dominated the world of animation in 2019 with multiple accolades and praise for its' frantic animation style which Studio Trigger is renown for. The film only got a limited run here in the States but was prepping for an encore run in theaters after its' first run sold out like hot cakes. But sadly, the covid-19 situation prevented that from happening and thus many fans, yours truly included, missed out on this neon-dizzy infused roller coaster work of art. I was able to check out the film during the little free time I have these days and it definitely lives up to its' hype, not that there ever was any doubt to being with. The film's look has the perfect marriage of 80s electric vibe with the sharp modern character design that, and the CGI flows in and out smooth like butter. The story is surprisingly engaging, even touching on red-button topics such as discrimination among lower class beings, the flaws of a social hierarchy order and the repercussions of misplaced morality. Despite the heavy themes, the film maintains the balance with the bizarre and outlandish sci-fi elements because it IS an anime film after all. But it all comes together nicely and Studio Trigger pulled out all the stops to deliver one of most original and exciting anime films ever, destined to be a now required viewing for any anime enthusiast. Highly recommended.
