A personal favorite new 2019 anime for me is Fire Force. A unique take on firefighters, Fire Force comes from the creators behind Soul Eater. So right off the bat, the art design is amazing. So what is Fire Force about?
In the year 198 of the Solar Era in Tokyo, special fire brigades called the Fire Force fight increasing incidents of spontaneous human combustion where human beings are turned into living infernos called “Infernals”. Shinra Kusakabe is a third-generation pyrokinetic youth who gained the nickname “Devil’s Footprints” for his ability to ignite his feet at will. He joins the Special Fire Force Company 8, which features other flames users who have the task of both working to extinguish any Infernals they encounter and investigate companies 1 through 7.
Now season 2 is ready to be released in July and we got our first look at what the story line is going to be about in season 2. As Fire company 8 fights against the evangelist and the White Cloaks, Shinra continues to unravel the truth behind the fire that killed his mother and took his brother. Season 2 left us heartbroken and all fired up for season 2 (Yep I made a Fairy Tale reference there) as we saw Shinra fight to protect his little brother. What does the new revelations in the new PV to come out for season 2 mean for all of them? It might mean all out war and a race to be the first to hold the keys to humanities future.
The new season is expected to be released July 2020.
