Promare (2019) Script

Unexplained cases of human combustion all over the world...

Burnish, a sudden mutation that is thought to cause self-combustion...

Segregation policies are being implemented...

Radical group Mad Burnish's terrorist blaze attacks on the rise.

UN-appointed specialist Prof. Prometh said that oppression of the Burnish may lead to concurrent blazes worldwide.


The Great World Blaze has come to an end...

30 years after the Great World Blaze, we must strive more than ever to keep peace.


Fire in high-rise building.

Area B-25, Promepolis New Town Center.

Dispatch request for Burning Rescue.

Burning Rescue!

Dispatch!

Hup.

NATIONAL RESCUE AND FIRE PREVENTION BUREAU

FORESIGHT PHARMACEUTICALS

Burning Rescue!

Where's Burning Rescue?

We can't cope!

We're doomed!

Yeah, yeah. We're almost there.

LUCIA Many people on the 58th floor!

Looks like the center of the Burnish blaze.

Varys! Remi!

Emergency deployment with anti-Burnish combat equipment.

- OK. Roger.

Lucia! Launch while in motion as soon as we get in range.

Go!


On the scene.

VARYS It's full of Burnish Flares here.

Quick, Remi!

REMI


Here they are!

You're safe now. Keep calm.

The ceiling...!

I got it.

Let's get out while we can.

Everyone in the container.

Rescuemobile on the scene.

IGNIS Aina! How's it going?

58th floor rescue complete. In transit.

There are people on the roof.

Burnish lightning! Instrument malfunction.

Can't get any closer. Launch Galo.

AINA

Woah. It's burning hard.

Well worth extinguishing.

It sets my firefighter's soul on fire!

GALO THYMOS

Sorry for the wait. Burning Rescue's here!

Breathe easy, folks! The amazing Galo is on the scene!

Stop messing around, Galo.

We'll launch you to the 108th floor.

I'm not messing around. I'm jazzing up the place.

Stop talking nonsense. You'll bite your tongue.

Launch!

Never fear, Galo is...

Look! Rescue's here!

Where are they going?

He's dead.

Must be dead.

I'm alive!

Come on, this way.

Galo, get rid of the smoke already!

Come on, this way. Get on.

Galo! Behind you.

Strong Burnish signals coming from behind the smoke.

They're growing stronger!

MAD BURNISH Captain. It's Mad Burnish!

The flame terrorists?

Yes. Most have been arrested, but the leader and two top brass were on the run.

Galo, listen.

Mankind's been after him for 30 years.

He's the instigator of Burnish crimes.

Mad Burnish's leader.

Your rescue gear will do no good.

Wait for help.

So, that's the boss.

Galo!

Aina. Rescue has priority. Go, quick!

Don't do anything crazy.

Like he's gonna listen.

You're damn right.

A little burn never scared a firefighter.

You'll find me dead before letting those firebugs loose.

You, fireball bastards!

Hey!

Is that it? You're all talk.

Fireboy.

Rescue gear's too heavy to compete with bikes.

They're too fast.

Pull that thing out then, Lucia.

Righto.

It's tuned and ready. Can load at any time.

Go! Tech on!

Though the fire is gone, the heart is tempered.

On-the-scene docking!

Matoi Tech!

I'll put you out with my burning soul!

Click.

Be amazed! Matoi embodies the heritage of a Far East island's firefighter.

It symbolizes the spirit of the men who fought fire with their bare hands.

I won't let you do what you want forever, firebug bastards!

Is he stupid?

He is stupid.

You fool!

How the hell!?

Here's one.

Gueira! What?!

And two.

Come down, big boss!

Get off your high horse...

And fight me! One-on-one!

Shit.

Coward! Attacking me when I was striking a pose.

Only an idiot poses while firefighting!

Lucia! What the hell is that toy?

From an idea I had. Sorry.

Galo, don't get too excited. Stay calm.

I'm always calm.

Hey! Are you messing with me?

Here he goes again.


Interesting.

One-on-one!

What's fun about burning people's houses?

It's not our choice.

The flames are part of us.

We must burn in order to live. That's the way we Burnish are.

Only your soul should burn.

Your flames are a nuisance. I'll put 'em out.

With my burning soul. That's my style.

You're talking nonsense.

Shut up!

Heave-ho.


Idiot.

You're just a kid.

Look who's talking.

Get out of my way or die.

We Burnish don't kill without reason.

You have nothing to protect yourself.

You're naked.

Don't you act big, firebug bastard!

I'm... No, actually, we're... a rescue team.

Lucia!

You got it!

How do you like it?

Matoi Tech rapid cooling.

This is Special Mobile Firefighter Rescue Unit Burning Rescue's teamwork.

BURNING RESCUE Are you in awe now? I didn't get naked for fun.

It didn't cross my mind.

The name is Galo Thymos.

A firefighter with a burning soul.

"Balls to the wall" is the word I live by.

Make a note of it.

My name is Lio. Lio Fotia.

LIO FOTIA

You're too cocky, rookie.

Ow!

Jeez. The suit was brand new; would it kill you to be more careful?

You can get better data that way.

You went overboard, idiot.

You hit me too hard, Varys!

Hit him even harder, otherwise this idiot won't learn.

Aina, you...

Freeze Force.

Colonel Vulcan.

Good job, Ignis.

VULCAN We'll take the Mad Burnish.

Hey, you're working hard with this old gear.

Life must be hard for a low-level rescue team.

But, Burnish crimes are under Freeze Force's jurisdiction.

Taking credit for our work.

Hey, stop it!

Was it you who caught him?

What if I was?

You've exceeded your authority. I'm arresting you.

What?

The law forbids civilians from dealing with terrorists.

You could've caused a major disaster.

I can't overlook your reckless actions.

It's the Burnish's crimes that can't be overlooked.

I've only stopped them.

Make your objections in court.

Wait.

We're authorized to deal with them in case of a fire emergency.

That should apply.

The right to decide is mine.

Is this a legitimate decision?

You can't take a joke.

Internal power struggle? Public officials are so petty.

How dare you, Burnish? Take him away!

Looks like Vulcan was taking it out on you.

Huh?

The Burnish suddenly appeared 30 years ago.

Large fires caused by fire-handling mutants took a big toll on the world.

But, now the Burnish threat's being driven out.

The other day, thanks to Burning Rescue's intervention, Mad Burnish's leader was arrested.

This marks the end of the flame terrorist group.

Ouch.

Ow!

Wait!

He said wait! Damn!

It's useless.

You'll only get frozen limbs.

Looks like it.

Boss.

My God.

It's terrible.

It's like people say.

You were our only hope, but now you've got caught too.

Boss.

What have we done to deserve this?

Let me introduce...

Burning Rescue's young hero, Galo Thymos!

He annihilated Mad Burnish. Let's praise his achievement.

Galo, keep protecting Promepolis hereafter.

You bet I will, Governor.

I'll protect this town, just like you saved me.

You've always been my hero, since the day you lost your arm to save me.

KRAY FORESIGHT

I'm counting on you, Galo.

Inferno Volcano Margherita Megamax.

There you go.

Ouch. It's so yummy hot from the oven.

- Another one. Sure.

Cooked just right, as usual.

He's very good.

There you go.

I saw you on TV, Galo. Great job.

This?

They were a real nuisance, those terrorists.

Mad Burnish, is that what they're called?

It's a relief to know their boss's in jail.

I'm sure not all Burnish are dangerous like those guys.

But, they get discriminated against because of them.

You nailed it, chief.

The Burnish are misunderstood. They're not to blame.

It's a mutation.

They can do nothing about it. The question is how you use it.

Like Varys's superhuman strength.

Anyway, just count on me for any fire in town.

I swear on this medal.

You're so reliable.

We're counting on you.

But, wearing it here?

A man must always wear his medals on his chest.

All the more if Gov Kray gave it to me.

He saved your life, right?

Yeah, when I was a kid.

The governor was still a student back then.

He got known thanks to that rescue.

Then his research on fireproof material got noticed, and he became a billionaire.

Now he's the president of the Foresight Foundation and city governor.

An amazing upstart route.

Can't you make money with your inventions?

Inventions that make money are a heresy.

The true mad scientist.

Your older sister's one too.

Yeah. No idea what she's researching, though.

Warp engines? They still have a long way to go.

Will we be able to see 'em in our lifetime?

I was able to become a rescuer thanks to Gov Kray's help.

I gotta pay him back, no matter what the risks.

Chief! More Inferno Volcano Margherita!

We better not split the bill.

- Gimme that. You're eating too much.

Freeze Force?

Nobody move!

If you do, I'll regard you as a Burnish.

Bastard! What are you here for?

You again? Shut up and watch.

Hey, you! Don't move.

Hey!

Stay away!

You're a Burnish?

Please, wait! What has he done wrong?

He was only baking pizza.

Did you know?

Boss.

It's OK.

But, you just wanted to make good pizza, didn't you?

Owner.

You're under arrest too. Cordon off the store.

Wait.

The Burnish is innocent, And Chief had nothing to do with it.

He violated the Burnish Protection Crime Act.

Whoever hides a Burnish gets arrested too.

You should start studying law before posing as a hero.

Wait!

It's true, that law does exist.

But, it's a special anti-terrorism law.

These people are not terrorists.

That's for the court to decide.

So, this pizza was made by a Burnish?

Disgusting.

How can you give this stuff to your customers?

Hey! Stop it!

Galo!

Don't make a mistake. We have no right to stop them.

Pisses me off though.

Where are you going?

Get out.

We're transferring you.

- Gueira. Aye.

- Meis. Yes.

Let's do it.

Bastard!

We Burnish are free.

I won't let the Foundation do what they want.

We'll take back our hurt brothers.

Thanks.

- Free the others. - Yup!

But don't kill anyone.

We Burnish don't kill without reason.

I know!

A wall of flames!

Come on. We're breaking out.

You're...

Breaking a freezing ring is a piece of cake for our boss.

Come on!

You're a nuisance.

Come on, this way! Quick!

I didn't know about this place. What is it?

Dunno.

You don't know?

I found it by chance riding around one day while I was pissed off.

Since then, I come here to cool off.

You really have to go out of your way to come up here in the woods.

Only someone with lots of spare energy would do it.

Why are you here, then?

The way you took off, I thought you went to raid Freeze Force HQ.

You wanted to help?

I wanted to stop you.

You think I'm an idiot, don't you?

Yeah.

Jeez.

Hey! It could break!

No worries. I dug down 5 meters, and there was ice all the way.

You dug down 5 meters?

Yeah. I was curious to see how far down the ice went.

Come on. You can skate with shoes too.

Well, I'm relieved.

You've got enough sense to come here and cool off.

I can't give Gov Kray trouble.

The higher-ups know he saved my life.

If I did something wrong, they'd think I'm misusing his authority.

So you can be sensible.

I guess I understand how you feel.

I'm the same.

I've always been "Heris's sister," not "Aina."

She's always been very smart. She was a child prodigy.

I see.

But...

I'm proud of being Heris Ardebit's sister.

She's the core pillar of Foresight Lab now.

You're working hard too.

You're you, Aina.

Wah...!

Ouch! Hey!

...Burnish.

Where are you going?

You call HQ.

Jeez! He's always like that.


You're Mad Burnish's boss!

Lio Fotia.

I've already told you. Memorize it, Galo Thymos.

What?

Be quiet. We're having a meal.

Do the Burnish eat food too?

Ouch!

What do you think we are?

We Burnish are human beings. If we don't eat, we die.

Sorry.

You're right.

Lio.

Hang on in there, Thyma. The truck'll be here soon.

A truck?

A helicopter'd be too conspicuous.

Gueira and Meis went to get a truck.

But, she won't...

Let me do it!

You?

She's hurt because of you guys!

I'm a rescuer.

I did emergency medical care training.

I carry medical equipment on my bike.

No need.


From flames to ashes, from ashes to earth.

Rest in peace.

She turned into ashes?

It's the Burnish's fate.

What?

The flames burn our body.

But they also give us the power to regenerate it.

While we're alive, our body is eternal.

We'll recover no matter how much we burn.

But, once our life is over, we turn into ashes.

Are you serious?

That's no surprise at all. All humans die.

We feed the flames and burn out.

This certainty is like a blessing.

So, you live for the flames?

We can hear them. We hear their cries.

"I want to burn harder!"

"I want to blaze! Stronger, hotter!"

They are alive.

Granting their wishes is the Burnish's destiny.

But, we don't kill people.

When we Mad Burnish attack a town, we always provide an escape route.

We pride ourselves for that.

Boss, the truck is ready. There's room for everyone.

Good. Let's go.

It's dangerous to stay here too long.

Running away again?

Yeah. As long as the Foundation's after us.

Can't you stop starting fires?

You could live like normal people if you did.

You wouldn't have to run.

Do you really believe that?

Yeah.

You're an idiot.

What?

Why do you think she died?

Because of the Foresight Foundation's experiments.

You really didn't know?

What a simpleton.

Not just her. Everyone was almost killed by Kray Foresight.

He cuts us up and dissects us for his research.

But, we're humans too.

You're lying!

The governor'd never do something like that.

Keep living in denial.

Hey! Wait! Hey!

Wait!


Galo! Are you OK?

Galo.

You want to return it?

Yeah.

Lio has escaped.

Nobody reported that to me.

I met him in a mountain cave. He said he escaped from prison.

Even if that was the truth, I can't see the need to return it.

Medals are made to be awarded to and from people who deserve them.

Neither of us is worthy.

What do you mean?

Gov, is it true that you're doing human experiments with the Burnish?

You're my hero.

You saved me, started a foundation and founded this amazing town.

But, you're doing such a horrible thing?

Horrible?

The Burnish are humans.

They get hungry, they get sad if they lose a friend.

It's bad that they cause fires, but you can arrest them and that's it.

You can't just kill them for no reason!

I see.

Follow me.

Ever since the Burnish appeared 30 years ago, underground magma's been running out of control.

At this rate, it'll gush out and cover the whole planet in six months.

What?

Oh?

It'll be a greater catastrophe than the Great World Blaze.

The earth will become a dead planet.

No way...

So many doors.

This is the Parnassus Project. The last hope for mankind.

A spaceship?

There's a planet very similar to Earth, four light-years from here.

Omega Centauri.

Starship Parnassus will be the new Noah's Ark.

It'll carry 10,000 chosen ones who'll migrate to Omega Centauri.

Only 10,000 people?

That's the maximum number of passengers it can carry.

You can't be serious...

You're...

Aina's sis?

HERIS Why is he here?

It's OK. How's the project coming along?

We're about to start the final test now.

That's the pizza maker.

What are you doing to him?

Just watch.

Start the test.

Start the test.

Activate Prometech pod.

Activate warp.

Activate warp.

Stop Prometech pod.

Stop pod.

The test was successful.

The implementation of the warp engine is in sight.

I told you.

We should have used the Prometech engine since the beginning.

That's horrible.

It's a valued sacrifice for the survival of mankind.

What?

We can't build the warp engine without the Burnish.

There must be some other way.

If we stop the magma, we won't need to go to another planet.

I've considered that.

But, we can't stop it with our current technology.

Migration's our best bet.

So, you sacrifice the Burnish for that?

Exactly.

Do you understand what I'm doing now?

Yeah, I do. But I can't accept it.

Then, what will you do?

I'll extinguish the Earth's magma!

I knew you'd say that.

We're short of time.

Can't have an idiot making a fuss.

Why, Gov?

Do not call me "Gov!"

I've always hated it.

You've always been an eyesore to me!

Take him away.

What the hell? What's going on, Kray?

Kray...

Begin final tuning.

We'll install the Prometech engine on the Parnassus.

Biar, call the car.

Yes sir.

Hey! Open the door!

Hey! Anybody there?

Please, open the door!

Why, Kray?

You were my hero.

I was against it.

Pod production is already complete.

You were planning to use the Prometech engine since the start?

Yes. I was only waiting for you to make the decision.

How could you...

We'll have to abandon most of mankind to its fate.

You couldn't live with it if it wasn't your own decision.

How's the Burnish crackdown going?

Freeze Force has already been deployed.

Checkmate. We'll get busy.

We're almost there. Give it your all.

Who knew they were hiding here.

"The darkest place is under the candlestick."

Didn't notice with all these volcanos around.

Wait!

Run away! Freeze Force's here!


Careful. We don't want 'em dead.

They're precious fuel.

How did you find us?

Who knows? Take a wild guess.

Be careful.

Boss!

You bastard!

I was waiting for you, Mr. Vulcan.

You told him.

Get 'em!

We implanted a tracker in the old man's body beforehand.

That was foolish.

You're the fool.

We're no match against the Foundation.

The shorter the time you've got left, the more you think about yourself.

Thanks for your hard work.

Oh?

Resources are limited; can't let him go to waste.

Even an old man should make himself useful.

You bastard!

Absolute Zero Chain Freezing Bullet.

It freezes by absorbing your body heat.

Good luck burning through that.

I knew you got caught on purpose to free the prisoners.

Thought you outsmarted us, huh?

We saw you coming a mile away, brat!

No dice!

You've even gathered all the Burnish in one spot, saving us time.

Gotta thank you for that.

How dare you hit the boss!

How dare you hit the settlement!

You'll pay for it!

Stop it! Run away!

Forget about us!

Burnish's flame will continue to burn so long as you're alive!

Your flames are invincible!

No...

You bastards!

Go!

Guys!

We did it!

You smart asses.

Where was Lio shot out to?

Inside Fennel Volcano.

We don't have the right equipment to go in there.

Doesn't matter. Absolute zero bullets'll surely take his life.


Governor.

The test was a success.

Yes, so I see. Well done, Dr. Heris.

Commence the Parnassus Project now.

Yes sir.

We'll start contacting selected citizens in accordance to simulations.

Did you find him?

No. He wasn't even at the frozen lake.

We lost his tracks after he went to the governor's.

It's been a week already.

Jeez, where'd he go?

There's so much new stuff I want to test.

I'd like both of you to refrain from acting selfishly.

My inventions are not selfish.

They're a precaution, you never know.

Yeah, yeah.

That idiot.

I finally found out.

A friend at the city office told me Galo was arrested.

What? How come?

They say he's a terrorist.

He got arrested trying to shoot the governor.

No way!

What do you think, Captain?

It's a fact he was arrested.

Sounds kinda fishy.

Hey!

Aina! Where are you going?

Wait outside. Don't worry, I'll shout if I need help.

Are you sure?

You're not the kind of guy who'd attack an unarmed person.

Aina often told me you're honest and straightforward to a fault.

Come on, eat. It's your last supper.

You really OK with this?

Aina told me she's proud of you.

Does she know about the migration?

And about the Burnish?

It's none of your business.

You haven't told her. She wouldn't have taken it.

Why don't you tell her, if you have nothing to hide?

I'd do anything for her. For her survival.

I don't think she'd be happy.

Heris!

Aina.

Is it true that Galo was arrested?

Yes.

There must be a mistake. He's no terrorist.

Please, talk to Governor Kray.

Calm down, Aina.

But...

I saw it with my own eyes.

He tried to assault the governor.

Listen, Aina.

You must think about yourself now.

I'll contact you soon.

Come here as soon as you get the call.

Understand?

I love you, Aina.

Heris...


I won't forgive you.

I'll make you pay, Kray Foresight!

You'll bear the brunt of the Burnish's fury!


What happened?

Unexplained fires in all areas of Promepolis.

A huge Burnish Flare's coming out from the ground.

This is a warning for Kray Foresight.

Free all captured Burnish immediately.

Otherwise I'll burn Promepolis to the ground.

I'll have no mercy.

Lio? Is that Lio?

That flame...

He's crying?

Lio Fotia, I'm surprised you're still alive. You're a bad loser.

You're an eyesore. Get lost!

Don't mess with me!


Stupid eyelid!

Enough with the cannon fodder.

Come out and face me, Kray Foresight!

The fire's moving fast.

Captain, this is endless!

Captain, all Freeze Force interceptors have been shot down.

Varys, go to area C-5, the most damaged.

We'll keep the fire under control.

Yessir!

Galo?

Captain!

Captain! The fire! A big fire's moving!

On your ass.

Oww! It's hot! Ow!

Ow! Ow! Ow!

I'm coming too, Captain.

But, you're...

We'll talk later.

The fire's first priority. Am I wrong?

Did you escape?

Yeah.

Galo!

I'm Galo Thymos!

A firefighter with a burning soul!

Where else would I go!

Yeah.

I serviced it. Under Captain's orders.

Captain.

Yeah.

Leave it to me!

Aina!


Mad Burnish. I'm here.

Kray.

Kray!

Kray Foresight!

Bring it on...

Mad Burnish!

Ow! It's hot!

Stay out of it!

It's not hot at all!

Your spiteful flames aren't hot at all.

My burning firefighter's soul's a million and ten times... hotter!

It's cold!


So be it.

You again, Galo Thymos!

I understand your anger.

- I was betrayed by Kray too. What?

Having said that, I can't let you hurt and kill innocent civilians!

You're the ones who're using innocent Burnish in human experiments!

Didn't you guys pride yourselves for not killing without reason?

You two, try to cool off a little!

Ow! It's hot! It's hot!


Did you calm down a bit?

Hey! What's that?

What is this place?

The building's not wet.

It was in a cavity under the ice.

Exactly.

Welcome, Galo Thymos and Lio Fotia.

How do you know our names?

Who are you?

I need to talk to you. Come with me.

Wait a minute, you two!

We managed to contain the blaze.

Incredible, that dummy's attack worked.

Fight or flight response.

No man, it was simply a dummy's response.

And Aina?

Can't reach her since she went with the dummy.

We have no time to worry about them.

We've got rescue work to do.

Roger!

Governor, the fires in town were extinguished.

The transport network is going back to normal.

Good. Bring selected citizens on board and keep the others away from the ship.

Parnassus is taking off.

Activity in the earth's core has intensified.

There's no time left.


What's this place?

Some kind of research facility?

So, you're not going to announce the Prometech pod?

No. It's a devilish invention that sacrifices Burnish lives.

I see. You've kept it secret, right?

Only the two of us know.

Same for the Promare?

Correct.

I'm relieved.

Someone has to shoulder the fate of mankind.

If you won't, then I will.

No. I should be the one regardless.

You...My research...

Yes. I'm taking it all.

Was this your plan all along?

Maybe.

The governor's a murderer.

The victim was the guy who took us here.

Exactly. Kray killed me.

Who are you?

Deus Prometh. I was a Burnish researcher.

Instant freezing agent, fireproof armor.

They're all anti-Burnish patents belonging to the Foundation.

They're all my inventions.

Kray stole them and registered them in his name.

So, what are you?

I've backed up my consciousness into this computer.

So that I could come back to life after my vital signs ceased.

Of course, I made sure Kray didn't find out.

A virtual personality.

How did you know our names?

I've been hacking Promepolis's network.

I stay informed on whatever happens there in order to keep an eye on Kray.

What's that?

That's...!


Volcanic eruption in South-West Promepolis.

How's magma activity?

Within calculations.

Good. Get ready for departure.

Boarding is complete.

Please wait, Governor.

What is it?

Aina's not back yet.

We've issued the order. But we couldn't reach her.

Don't take off until she's back.

What are you saying?

It'll all be meaningless if she doesn't survive!

I'll wait until the last minute.

But, we can't postpone because of her.

You should know that.

Go back to your post, Dr. Heris.

Kray...

Now.

What's that?

It's a spaceship.

- Kray showed it to me at the lab.

- What?

Soon the magma'll gush out and the Earth'll go BOOM!

So, they'll run away to another planet.

Max 10,000 people can board it.

Only 10,000?

Yeah. On top of that, it's human-powered.

They'll use the Burnish's flames to power the warp engine.

And that'll chip away their life.

What?

It's horrible.

Galo, is that what my sister's been working on?

It is, right?

Yeah.

Kray, that fool. Doesn't he realize?

The moment he ignites that incomplete engine, the Earth'll perish.

What?

If he hurts the Burnish with the Prometech engine, the Promare in the Earth's core will go out of control.

The planet will be doomed.

What do you mean?

The flames that the Burnish use are not regular flames.

They're a fire life form from a parallel universe.

"Fire life form?"

I called them "Promare."

Promare?

Yes. Together they form a sentient fixed star in the parallel universe.

In other words, it's an aggregate of living organisms achieving life through nuclear fusion and consciousness via electromagnetic field.

What's seen as flames is but a fraction of energy seeping through a space-time rupture.

What's this old man saying?

30 years ago, there was a distortion of space and time, that connected Earth's core to the Promare Universe.

Humans prone to resonate with the Promare can use their power.

The Burnish?

That's right.

The voices that push us to burn stronger...

It's the fire life forms.

If that's the case, what have we been...

Using the Promare's interdimensional energy, teleportation is indeed possible.

But, the Burnish's nerve signals reach the Promare they're synched with.

The Promare feel the Burnish's pain.

If those incomplete Prometech pods cause the Burnish enough pain, the Promare in Earth's core will spiral out of control, destroying the planet.

So, they're at the center of the Earth?

That's where the space-time rupture is.

It is there they live.

Galo Thymos. Lio Fotia.

I want you to stop Kray Foresight.

Us?

Yes. With the real Prometech engine I've completed.

How?

With this.

The super weapon I've created in the event of Promare disaster.

Deus X Machina!

DEUS X MACHINA Interesting.

They're already on board.

The completed Prometech engine doesn't cause pain.

It uses Lio's body as a gateway to harness Promare energy.

You just concentrate on synchronization.

Why us?

Why did you choose me and this guy?

I didn't choose you. You just happened to land here.

I had to stop Kray, but I couldn't do anything by myself.

Then you showed up.

Mankind's still got luck on its side.

What if they didn't come?

Meh. Kray would have just doomed the Earth, I guess.

This guy...

I am no "guy," I'm a computer. Now, the rest is in your hands.

My job here is done.

Professor? Professor!

Feeling conflicted?

I guess you are.

Your flames are aliens, that's a hell of a surprise.

What do you know?

Nothing, but if there's a fire, I'll put it out. That's the only thing I know.

So, you burn out too.

What?

Show off your Burnish pride. That's what I mean.

Yeah.

Let's do this. We'll save the Burnish and the Earth.

That's it.

Ready for departure.

Start the Prometech engine.

Prometech engine. Start.

That's...

The warp gate. Keep going, Dr. Heris.

Behold, the door to mankind's future opens.

What's that?

What?

Weird. Eruptions are happening simultaneously all over the world.

The time has come.

Large unidentified machine ahead.

Inbound and unresponsive.

That machine!

Attack with all weapons!

Shoot freezing missiles.

Use regular munitions too.

That's an order.

Collision on deck. Target halted.

Is it dead?

What are you doing? You're the pilot!

My bad. Just can't get into the zone.

What do you mean?

Must be the way it looks.

I mean, look how lame this design is.

My firefighter's soul can't burn in that.

You insist I come and this is the crap I get?

So what do you want me to do? Fine. How's this?

Now we're talking!

That's the stuff!

This is my jam!

Extremely strong Burnish signal.

More pure than our Prometech engine.

Even if the ideals you look up to fall to the ground, hope never breaks.

A burning firefighter and a cool flame, oil and water as one!

Absolute Firefighter Lio De Galon!

LIO DE GALON We'll put out every last fire on Earth!

What's that nonsense?

"Deus X Machina" doesn't have enough impact.

Its name's Lio De Galon.

You should praise my modesty for not calling it Galo De Lion.

Shut up and pilot.

As I thought, that's Deus X Machina.

I didn't know it was completed.

Watch-out-for-fire punch!

Was that Galo's voice?

What's he doing?

What's that robot?

Where did he get it from? Who made it?

What the hell is going on, Galo!?

Can you hear me, Heris? It's me, Aina.

Aina! Where have you been?

I'm OK. More importantly, look at this.

If you start the Prometech engine, the Earth's core'll go out of control.

You mustn't fly that ship!

Prof. Deus!

The governor killed him?

This is...

It's fake footage, made up by the rebels.

Don't let it get to you.

Is it true? Did Kray really kill Prof. Deus?

No doubt. Deus told me personally.

Anyway, Kray's engine is incomplete.

If it takes off, the Earth'll...

Aina! Aina!

You cut off external communications.

It wasn't me.

It's because of that robot's attack.

Killer move One Match Arson Kick!

Kick! Kick! Kick!

Captured Burnish! Where are you?

We're coming for you!

Don't mind the small fry, Heris.

Engine to full power. We'll warp at once.

You don't care about the Earth?

Sooner or later, it'll be destroyed.

Concentrate on the migration project.

You knew, didn't you?

That using the engine would cause the planet's destruction.

It's either now or in six months.

Right. I got it.

Prometech engine, full power.

Oh no! They're about to warp!

Darn!

Tell me! Where are the Burnish?

We can't go ahead. They'll smash the bridge.

All personnel move to the second bridge.

Transfer the ship's main system to the second bridge.

I'll get rid of that.

Biar, you lead takeoff procedures.

Yes sir.

Damn Galo. Don't push your luck.

What's that?

Your futile struggle... is over!

This voice...It's Kray.

Free the Burnish, Kray!

Filthy terrorists. How dare you?

Take this!

What?

The buildings turned into dirt!

Genocide Cultivation Beam.

Destroys mountains turning them into farmland.

One of the terraforming tools we'll use on our new planet.

I wasn't expecting to use it here.

And the people inside?

They're all in underground shelters, obviously.

Damn you!

Why don't you use your science to put the magma under control?

I can't. That's why we're migrating.

Do you want to destroy mankind so bad?

If you know it's gonna be destroyed, you just have to stop it.

And think about the rest later.

You hopeless fool.


I won't let you commit any more atrocities.

Our Lio De Galon, or your Krazor X!

KRAZOR X Let's see which is more powerful!

Lio!

OK.

You stopped Lio De Galon's flames.

True to your name, Krazor X.

But...

Take this, Krazor X!

You... and your... stupid names!

Pulverizing Pile Driver.

Designed to break through hard bedrock to reach water veins.

Against this, your armor's paper!

That robot's bad news.

We can't win like this.

I wish I had my Matoi gear.

Matoi?

That weird decoration you wore?

It's not weird!

It embodies the heritage of a Far East island's firefighter.

Right.

Like this?

Awesome!

Matoi really fires me up!

Gaze in awe! Lio De Galon Matoi Decked Out!

What?

Heris!

Doctor!

The engine's out of control due to overfueling.

At this rate, the central pod will overheat and explode.

Heris, what happened?

I've destroyed the central pod by overloading it with energy.

The engine won't work anymore.

You did it intentionally!

I was wrong to trust you.

That idiot. She's been blinded by her love for her sister.

Call Colonel Vulcan!

Ouch.

Looks like the ship's crashed.

The warp gate must have closed.

We can no longer stop the Earth's destruction.

This ship and its passengers are the only future for mankind.

And it's Kray Foresight who'll create that future!

Absolute Zero Heat Death Cannon.

The ultimate freezing weapon, created for protection from Promare attacks and solar flares on the new planet.

Why don't you use that to save the Earth then?

You must reach the core for that.

This machine will not withstand that.

You just want to migrate no matter what.

Cool that hard head of yours instead!

Do you think two fools like you can beat me?

Go to absolute zero freezing hell!

Galo, you didn't even try to avoid it.

What's your strategy?

Grinning and bearing it! That's my strategy!

Are you an idiot?

Yea. The world's No.1 firefighting idiot!

I'll put 'em out now.

Both your flames and stupid ambitions!

All right!

Try it if you can!


Did we beat him?

Wait. Look.

Do you want to save your brothers that much, Lio Fotia?

But you can't. The Burnish are destined to die.

Listen to their death throes.

Kray!

If you hate me, attack me. Fire-spitting fool...

Lio Fotia!

I'll never...

Stop it. Calm down, Lio! Stop! Don't kill him!

I'll never... forgive you!

Do you think you can burn me with those pathetic flames?

You Burnish are just a bunch of fools.

What?

Don't tell me you...

Indeed.

I have the same ugly mutation. That's why I understand... how hard it is to have a strong enough will to control the flames and the urge to burn everything to the ground.

The Burnish are controlled by the Promare.

They're slave to their instincts.

You make it sound like you're different.

Because that's the truth.

You can't move.

My Burnish power's stronger than yours.

Darn.

But, your power's enough to restart the Prometech engine.

You'll be the engine's core.

What?

Thank you.

Let Lio go, Kray!

Good grief.

You've been an eyesore from the moment I met you.

I had the first Burnish spasm when I was a student.

I was trying to hold back the flames, but I couldn't.

So, you didn't save me?

No, I took care of you by chance.

It was a good opportunity to build my reputation.

No...

I made you a Burning Rescue member because it was the job with the highest mortality rate.

I wanted you to disappear, but you kept coming back even after getting injured.

My life's always gone as planned.

But you constantly mess up my plans.

You're really an eyesore of an idiot!

Kray, you bastard.

But this is the end for you, fool.

Galo!

You monster!

No...

A savior!

Savior of mankind!

You can't run away.

It was foolish of you to go against the governor.

She chose to die.

What?

Cheeky bastards!

Aina!

We made it. I'll go get Galo!

Galo!

Your brothers are inside the surrounding pods.

You'll fly us all over the stars, shouldering your fellows' screams.

And you'll become the myth of mankind.

An undue luxury for a Burnish fool.

You won't get away with this.

Come on, get angry.

Your rage will power the engine.

This is Kray. Restart countdown. We'll warp in five minutes.

Roger.

Parnassus, five minutes to warp.

Galo! Galo!

He's still on fire.

Wait!

Are you OK, Galo?

Yeah.

Lio protected me.

The ship's gonna warp!

How? I destroyed the engine.

He said he'll use Lio as the engine's core.

Doctor, where's the engine?

What's the plan?

I'll go save Lio.

How? I know you're going to say you'll just crash into the core.

Yeah, I'm a Burning Rescue member.

Rescue and firefighting's my job.

I'll save Lio and put out...

Ignis!

Hand over the doctor and that punk.

Or you'll be treated as traitors too.

I refuse.

You've got some guts defying Freeze Force.

It's an emergency. I've authorized them to fight.

All of you'll be purged anyway.

I refuse.

Firm refusal.

Lucia!

OK.

I put new drill gear on the spare Matoi just in case.

You never know.

What? A drill?

Yup, the ultimate in armor-piercing tech.

I sent you the ship's data.

I'll calculate the angle and send you straight to the engine.

I appreciate it.

No time to announce yourself. Just go!

Go!

I'm coming, Lio!

This is...

Vulcan!

Ignis!

How long must this go on?

There's no time left, methinks.

Promare activity has increased.

Galo...


Lio!

Are you OK, Lio?

Oh no!

Are you still alive? You're so annoying.

Don't mess with rescue operations. Back off!

I'll extinguish you.

Extinguishing is my job!

Your struggle's useless!

What?!


Same thing as earlier. Lio's fire protected me.

This shielded me from your flames.

I'll save him. And the Earth. And you too.

Me?

Shut up and watch.

Hey! Don't die!

Lio! Lio!

Damn! Don't disappear!

All right, I've got no choice.


Galo...?

You made it, Lio.

Did you save me?

Darn! For the first time in my life...

I lit a fire, because of you!

What are you going to do about this? You jerk!

Then let's just burn the Earth to the ground.

Inside the pod, I synched with the Promare in the core and now I know.

Their combustion's incomplete.

We need to let them burn completely once.

You can't tell a firefighter to do that, you idiot.

We need your firefighter's soul.

Let's use it once again.

But, this time it'll be Galo De Lion.

Wait, what are you doing?

Going firefighting, of course.

We'll put out the core's fire and your ambitions.

We need all the Burnish's help too.

Our flames'll burn the whole planet!

OK, Boss!

Let's do it, Boss!

Boss!

I'll show you my burning firefighter's soul!

What?


Oh no! Oh no! I'm burning!

Darn Galo, he didn't make it in time?

But, these flames...

Yeah, that's right.

They're not hot.

It's the same as Galo earlier. They're protecting us.

Yes. The Promare synch with the humans' will.

When my urge to burn everything... and my will to save lives from fire... join as one...

GALO DE LION


...our flames'll burn out the Earth.

Complete combustion of the whole planet...

I'll put you out with my burning soul!


What did you do?

We satisfied the Promare's primal drive to burn, sent them back to their universe, and closed the dimensional rupture.

There are no Promare nor Burnish in this world anymore.

That was uncalled for.

It burned like a dream!

This is the beginning.

This city's new beginning.

Let's clean up after the fire. Lio, you're gonna help too.

What?

We're short of hands.

We'll get your buddies to help too.

But...

Don't worry. If the haters give you heat, I'll put 'em out.

Through spark and flame, I got your backs.

You really are an idiot.

Yeah. The universe's No. 1 firefighting idiot!
