Promare, huh. Well, the teaser does seem to abuse pastels hard enough to be a my little pony crossover. I look forward to the eventual equine reveal. Reactions should be glorious :V

... not!Kamina is trying way too hard, enough. Like, the sameness there kinda' detracts a bit from a first impression.

Yeah, the art is a bit weird to me, but given the names involved, I'll definitely see it. Although I don't know when, because the person I would normally watch things like that with in theaters has moved to a different continent from me.

Promare, directed and written by two people who worked together on Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill.
You've undersold it a bit, they were head director and writer, not just some people who worked on those. And shows that Imaishi directed are pretty much entirely responsible for Trigger's style as a thing that stands out, both now and when it was Gainax's style.

Trigger has always had an issue with characters looking similar to each other. There was a red-haired not!kamina in Kiznaiver and there was a not!kill-la-kill-hackerdude-who’s-name-I-forgot in Gridman.

Maybe it'll be a plot point, and not!Kamina will actually be an isekai'd Kamina.

I don't think they consider it a problem. I'm pretty sure the similar elements of design are meant to be taken as reference and homage. It's all but impossible that they don't know he looks like Kamina; they consciously decided that's what they were going with.

I remember there being a cool Robotech action game I played in my younger years, it may have been this one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72SGTVPlB9E
but I'm not sure if that was the exact one. I thought it was pretty cool, but its something that sticks out in my mind because I dropped it for having an extremely hard escort mission that frustrated me to rage quitting it.
I remember some of the really awful escort bullshits, all in all the worst mission design in anything ever, and I can't think of one which wasn't garbage.

I did really enjoy how fluid the transformation sequences were though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ttqXZCgJkI

Pow, battloid, pow, gerwalk, pow, veritech as easy as you wished in-game which really caught the ease of the palladium robotech feel where the switches took a melee action and you'd have four to six actions per round normally.

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

I'm just really loving Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba. Just has that perfect shonen battle anime flavor that I crave.

... yeah, note that this looks to be the largest mass murder event in modern japanese history. Latest toll I've seen confirmed is 33 dead. Seems like somewhere over a quarter of kyoani's staff have been killed :-\

Arsonist supposedly chained all the fire exits, poured petrol on people and tried to stab anyone leaving the main entrance.

It’s gonna be tough coming back from this

Internet circles (2ch etc.) are saying that the possible motive was that the arsonist was a delusional train otaku outraged over Hibike Euphonium because it took a 'train song' and re-purposed it, hence the shouts of plagiarism.

Yeah. I don't know either.

There is more debate about the liquid that was used than I would have expected (read: any debate at all). Dude set people on fire. Does it matter if he used kerosene, gasoline, or some other flammable liquid at that point?

Could be people trying to find/create inconsistencies so they can claim the event didn't actually happen. Some folks see false-flag operations in anything.

Well, it does matter if it was some rare liquid he was gifted by the government, but yeah, its unlikely its important.

this is horrific news.
