About Fire Force
Fire Force was first created by Atsushi Okubo for Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2015, and has since been collected into several volumes. The series follows an elite team of fire manipulators as they deal with spontaneously combusting people in an alternate take on Tokyo. Kodansha USA has licensed the series for an English Language release, and they describe Fire Force as such:
“Terror has paralyzed the clockwork metropolis of Tokyo! Possessed by demons, people have begun to burst into flames, leading to the establishment of a special firefighting team: the Fire Force, ready to roll on a moment’s notice to fight spontaneous combustion anywhere it might break out. The team is about to get a very unique addition: Shinra, a boy who possesses the unique power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving behind the famous “devil’s footprints” (and destroying his shoes in the process). Can the Fire Force discover the source of this strange phenomenon and out a stop or it? Or will the city burn to ashes first?”
The anime stars Gakuto Kajiwara (Black Clover’s Asta) as Shinra Kasukabe, Yusuke Kobayashi as Arthur Boyke, M.A.O. as Iris, Saeko Kimijo as Maki Oze, Kenichi Suzumura as Takehisa Hinawa, Aoi Yuki as Tamki Kotatsu, Kenjiro Tsuda as Joker, Daisuke Sakaguchi as Victor Victor Licht, Kazuyuki Okitsu as Karim Fulham and more.
