Hiroyuki Imaishi, the acclaimed animation director and co-founder of Studio TRIGGER, began his career at the historic Studio GAINAX (FLCL, GURREN LAGANN), making his industry debut on the critically acclaimed anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. Imaishi went on to work on a variety of hit titles at GAINAX, and in 2007 made his directorial debut on the massively popular and award-winning series GURREN LAGANN. In 2011, Imaishi left GAINAX to establish Studio TRIGGER, and directed TRIGGER's debut series, the critically acclaimed KILL la KILL. Continuing in his dynamic high-octane animation style, Imaishi, along with his core creative team, went on to direct the first feature film from Studio TRIGGER, PROMARE - a spiritual successor to his work on these former titles.
