The film is nearly two hours long and passes in what feels like 45 seconds. It is wildly entertaining and blaringly ridiculous, and I want to watch it every night for a week.

Promare often feels like a maximalist season finale trimmed of any build-up, a climax that's outstanding to watch yet empty beyond its pure spectacle.

While the overall tone is pitched to a teen demographic, the creative energy and the execution on display is consistently engaging.

Its characters burn bright with stylish designs and fun personalities, but the action is the real scene-stealer.

After seeing every leaf on every bush in so many features, it's fun to sit back and enjoy a film that pushes its look and palette beyond mere reality to create a fantasy world that could exist only in animation.

"Promare" checks all the conventional anime boxes - post-apocalyptic setting, mecha suits and plenty of fan service - but it's still an exciting watch.
