30 years have passed since the appearance of the Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves Mad Burnish appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team Burning Rescue, and Lio Fotia, the leader of Mad Burnish, begins.
Promare‘s English dub voice cast includes Billy Kametz, Johnny Yong Bosch, Crispin Freeman, and Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld.
