So apparently there’s a new anime called Fire Force (Enen no Shouboutai) coming out from the creators of Soul Eater, and it’s a battle fantasy anime where humans are spontaneously bursting into flames and one team of soldiers is tasked with solving the epidemic.
So here’s the rundown for this anime:
Year 198 of the Solar Era in Tokyo, special fire brigades are fighting against a phenomenon called spontaneous human combustion where humans beings are turned into living infernos called “Infernals”. While the Infernals are first generation cases of spontaneous human combustion, later generations possess the ability to manipulate flames while retaining human form. Shinra Kusakabe, a youth who gained the nickname Devil’s Footprints for his ability to ignite his feet at will, joins the Special Fire Force Company 8 which composes of other flames users as they work to extinguish any Infernals they encounter. As a faction that is creating Infernals appears, Shira begins to uncover the truth behind a mysterious fire that caused the death of his family twelve years ago.
So far, it looks pretty interesting. The animation was kinda fire to be honest and I already like the idea of a mystery about humans suddenly com-busting into flames. Definitely one to keep an eye out for in Summer 2019. And yeah, I know many probably already knew about this anime but I didn’t. I literally found out because IGN posted the trailer. Anyways, it looks to just as action-packed as Soul-Eater so I’m hyped!
