With half the Crew out on assignment at AX2019 (to be covered in more detail next episode), Gwyn and Tony take some time out to discuss Trigger’s latest theatrical offering, Promare, which recently topped 1 billion yen at the Japanese box-office.
According to Tony though, Promare might not be as original a production as many think and may actually have its origins in a Kabuki production that few outside of Japan know about…
Promare’s lead writer, Kazuki Nakashima is also an active contributor to the Shinkansen Kabuki Troupe.
Many of the major plot elements of Promare seem to take inspiration from one of the troupe’s more famous productions, Aterui (pictured).
