After the success of Soul Eater, mangaka Atsushi Ohkubo went from reapers to a special kind of fire fighter. And now, that manga, Fire Force, is getting itself a TV anime adaptation! They also released a new key visual featuring protagonist Shinra about to take on a massive fire.
They also confirmed that the studio behind Cells At Work, David Production, will be animating the series. Here’s how Kodansha Comics describes the manga’s story in English:
Terror has paralyzed the clockwork metropolis of Tokyo! Possessed by demons, people have begun to burst into flame, 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 put a stop to it? Or will the city burn to ashes first?
Expect the staff to reveal more announcements regarding the anime in the days to come.
