The anime film 「Promare」 is reported to have hit past 1.1 billion yen (10.3 million US dollar) in ticket sales. Furthermore, the film reached its 100th day of showing on the 31th of August. To commemorate, there will be a distribution of 「"thank you for 100-days in theaters" original illustration cards by Sushio」 for the audiences on-site.
Sushio, one of 「Promare」's key animation directors, is also a very prominent animator who now has his illustrations compiled and commercially released in art book format: 「SUSHIO THE IDOL」.
For his work on the 「"thank you for 100-days in theaters" original illustration cards」, Sushio decided to have the characters in 「Promare」 lined up facing outward, as if they were actors and actresses taking a commemorative photo as the filming is wrapped up; a touching scene brimming with indomitable playfulness.
The 「『Promare』 "thank you for 100-days in theaters" original illustration cards by Sushio」 will be distributed at available theaters, starting from the 6th of September and until the last card goes away. See the official site for more details.
「Promare」, the anime film, is still in theaters.

【Ima'ishi Hiroyuki, Director】
I think that it is unusual for an original feature-length film to remain in theaters for a 100 days. To the fans that have been supporting us, I have nothing but gratitude toward you; thank you, from the bottom of my heart! 「Promare」 can still keep going (probably!). Everyone, please continue supporting it.
Not only that the film continues showing past 100 days, there are more and more theaters start showing it while it is still showing in more than 50 different places; this is the first time I have experienced such phenomenon. Thank you, fans who have been supporting the film, from the bottom of my heart! We are the ones creating it, but I believe you fans are the ones nurturing it to this very day. Please continue to nurture our 「Promare」!
