Fire Force anime is just hours away from airing, and this is one anime I’ve been looking forward to since a long time now. It is being handled by David Productions and the schedule for it has been very healthy, which leads me to believe that its adaptation will be incredible. With the first episode being almost upon us, let’s get to discussing the first episode in detail in this post.
Before we begin, please note this post may contain official spoilers from the next episodes of the anime. If being spoiled is not for you, I suggest that you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started. Also, note that we did not create the spoilers or leaked them. They’re available all over the internet.
The show is set in Tokyo where people who have been possessed by demons start randomly bursting into flames. This leads to the establishment of a firefighting team called the Fire Force and their job to prevent these disasters from happening.
They want to find the source of this phenomenon and stop Tokyo from being reduced to ashes. This team gets a very unique addition when Shinra joins in. He has the unique power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving devil’s footprints behind. This is where his journey begins.
Fire Force is set to run for four cours. It is believed that after the first two cours, there will be a break, which will then be followed up by the next two cours.
Fire Force Episode 1 airs today, July 5, 2019. You can stream it across platforms such as Funimation and Crunchyroll.
