    Promare (2019) | Animind: An Anime Podcast #2

    We’re once again keeping anime on the mind as we dive deeply into the nuisance of the movie Promare in this mostly spoiler free podcast. We not only discuss the artistic achievements of this latest creation from Trigger but also look at its emotional impact. Promare is a roller coaster of a film that speaks to not only the LGBTQ community directly but also generally to anyone who has ever felt like they couldn't always be their true selves. Join anime nerds Graham and Dani and anime nerd in-training Matthew for this unforgettable ride through the world of Promare.
