Series premieres on July 5

The official website for the television anime of Atsushi Ohkubo's Fire Force (En En no Shōbōtai) manga revealed on Friday that Keina Suda will perform the show's ending theme song "veil."

The anime will premiere on July 5 at 25:25 (effectively July 6 at 1:25 a.m.) as the first title in the "Super Animeism" programming block on MBS, TBS, and other channels. Funimation will stream the television anime on its FunimationNow streaming service this year, and will also stream an English dub. Crunchyroll will also stream the series.

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?

The anime's cast includes:

Yuki Yase (Mekaku City Actors, Hidamari Sketch × Honeycomb) is directing the anime at David Production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Cells at Work!). Yamato Haishima is in charge of the series scripts, and Hideyuki Morioka (Kizumonogatari, Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei) is designing the characters. Mrs. Green Apple will perform the anime's opening theme song "Inferno."

Ohkubo (Soul Eater) launched the series in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in September 2015.
