▍About Fire Force
Terror has paralyzed Tokyo due to a phenomenon called spontaneous human combustion where humans beings are turned into living infernos. A special firefighting department, the Fire Force, is thus set for the urging situation.
Shinra Kusakabe (森羅日下部), a young boy who gained the nickname Devil’s Footprints for his ability to ignite his feet at will, joins the Special Fire Force, which is composed of other flames users as they work to extinguish any supernatural fire they encounter. As the story goes, Shira begins to uncover the truth behind a mysterious fire that caused the death of his family twelve years ago.
The manga series is written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo, who is known for his Soul Eater manga series. It is published by Kodansha and has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine since September 2015, with the chapters collected into sixteen tankōbon volumes as of April 2019.
