posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
David Production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Cells at Work!) announced on Wednesday that it is producing a television anime adaptation of Atsushi Ohkubo's Fire Force (En En no Shōbōtai) manga.
Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:
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?
Ohkubo launched the series in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in September 2015. Kodansha published the manga's 14th compiled book volume on August 17, and will ship the 15th volume on Friday. Kodansha Comics shipped the 12th volume on October 16.
