Studio Trigger’s Promare is once again going to appear in North American theaters. Yet another Fathom event has been announced via GKIDS Films’ Twitter. This time, there will be showings on April 7 and 8, 2020 and the showing will be called Promare (Complete).
The “complete” part of that refers to the extra content that will accompany each showing. Every presentation will have Side: Galo and Side: Lio animated shorts that offer insight into what was going on with both of these lead characters ahead of the events of the movie. The presentation will also be accompanied by a recorded message from Hiroyuki Imaishi, the film’s director. (He’s one of the Studio Trigger co-founders and has worked on shows like Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL, Gurren Lagann, and Kill la Kill.)
As for the showings, which day someone would want to go depends on whether they prefer Japanese audio with subtitles or an English dub. The April 7, 2020 showing will be a subtitled one, while the April 8, 2020 one will be subtitled.
People who won’t be able to attend a showing will have to wait until May to bring Promare home. Digital copies and streams will be available on May 5, 2020 in English. Physical Blu-ray and DVD copies will appear starting on May 19, 2020, with both standard and steelbook editions available.
