Spontaneous Human Combustion: a chaotic phenomenon that has plagued humanity for years, randomly transforming ordinary people into flaming, violent creatures known as Infernals. While Infernals make up the first-generation accounts of Human Combustion, the second and third generations became known as pyrokinetics—people gifted with the ability to manipulate and control their flames while remaining human. To combat the Infernal threat and discover the cause, the Tokyo Armed Forces, Fire Defense Agency, and Holy Church of Sol produced their answer: the Special Fire Force.

Young and eager third-generation pyrokinetic Shinra Kusakabe, nicknamed Devil's Footprints for his explosive ability to ignite his feet at will, becomes a member of the lively Special Fire Force Company 8. Upholding the brigade's duty to extinguish the blazing Infernals and lay their souls to rest, Shinra is determined to become a hero who will save the lives of those threatened by the flame terror.

However, this is not the hero's game Shinra imagined. The Fire Force is a fractured mess of feuding brigades, abnormal Infernal sightings are increasing all over Tokyo, and a shadowy group is claiming to have answers to the strange fire that caused the death of Shinra's family 12 years ago. Faced with many obstacles within and outside the Fire Force, Shinra fights to uncover the truth behind the burning mysteries that have kept him in the dark.

So, Enen no Shouboutai tells a story about a dude named Shinra, whose goal is to become a hero. And it may sound cheesy at the start, but later on it becomes more and more interesting, to the point where you just sit and watch ten episodes straight. But getting to the point:

1. Story - to be honest it's the weakest part in Fire Force, generic and cheesy, about a dude with dead parents, who joins special forces to save the world. All of us have seen it maaaany times. Like a typical shonen anime, later on, it becomes more complex and engaging, and ...

Mixed Feelings
Short review, no spoilers

1. Fights are great, impressive visually and ability-wise, fun to watch.

2. Fanservice is degrading, forced and placed like in the middle of the fight. Some characters do not have any purpose except flashing nudes.

3. World, while hinted as very interesting fiery-churchy-punky, was not explored at all. "Fire Force" forgets about their job after the 2nd episode and focuses on who knows what.

4. Story is as generic as it could be. Assemble team, grow as hero, fight bad guys.

Overall I enjoyed some part and simply skip others, and did not lose anything to be honest

the story was average at best but the fan service was unbearable and incredibly distracting. just go watch hentai at this point. a promising anime ruined completely by boobs jiggling in your face in every shot possible 😑
the story was predictable nothing new honestly
art style was really pretty but wasted the animators potential on stupid shit all the time
this might as well have been a 5 minute music video or something. the editing community will have a good time doing epic AMVs to imagine dragons but the actual anime is not worth watching just watch the AMVs or a few edits of the ...
