Well, Fire Force is a new guilty pleasure of mine.
It's a deeply flawed series, that's at the same time weirdly enjoyable... Maybe because it's made by David and they know how to make a fight-focused series?

Compared to the 1st season, not really much changed. A lot of cons of that one stayed: story is overally pretty ok, but sometimes characters will just run into a solution of a problem. Pretty much EVERY plot point is given to the characters, instead of being earned, for example bad guys have a weird habbit of explaining mysteries to the heroes.
On the good site, middle 3 arcs (Inca, China ...

Fire Force is such a fun anime, it has some issues but is one fun ride. I really enjoyed the first season but I know it had its issues. Season 2 improves on those issues but they are still present. One flaw I noticed with the second season was just consistency which I will explain later in the review.

Story: 6.5
So the story is there, Fire Force has a good bit of hidden lore of how the world came to its current state which is good. But overall the storytelling isn't very consistent. Some episodes are fantastic and amazing whereas others kinda just trudged along. I ...

My main language is not English and because of this I can make some mistakes.


I'm love the story.I like that some things stay mysterious, I'm not sure what ı feel about villains for now but they not 'bad' or boring type of Villains of course I'm more interesting in Joker's story but lets see

It's better than first season and overall I enjoy Art of Fire Force and Soul Eater I think they unique in their on way.

Story: 7
The Story is, just as in the first season, very varied. One episode can be really powerful and expertly written, others could be a 14-year-old's fan fiction. Two points stand out the most to me:

1. Pacing: The pacing is quite simply all over the place. Some episodes progress the story at the speed of light, others feel like filler. Even inside a single episode, there are crazy jumps. This does not make for a pleasurable viewing experience.

2. Tone: It's fine to goof off in scenes that aren't meant to be serious and aren't attached to the main plot. But interjecting comic relief and goofiness ...

Season 2 is a significant step down from season 1 in just about every aspect. The action lacked the same oomph, the story lacked the same drive, purpose, and sense of suspense, mystery, and revelations, the characters lacked the same progress and moments (save for Juggernaut and Maki), and the pacing lacked the same satisfaction. The art is probably the only thing that's the same, though I wasn't ever a fan of the stylized parts (eg, certain characters' eyes). It's actually kind of odd how the in-your-face fanservice was one of the things that detracted least. The pacing is probably what's the most wrong as ...

The second season is finally over, so what did we achieve throughout 24 episodes? Well not that much...

We continue from where we left off the first season as the 8th company tries to unravel more mysteries about the goal of the White Clads. And at the same time, trying to fight them to protect the Empire. It's pretty much the same as the first. We still have multiple arcs, training episodes, some greatly-animated fight scenes, and our cast having spotlight moments for their character developments.

The thing that frustrates me in this second season is that the quality goes up and down most of the time. ...

A consistent job that surprised me. Despite the difficulties that anime had to face in the 1st season, the show pleased most of the world and guaranteed its continuity.

The animation is good, but it bothers me when the distant scenes leave the characters without a face. The opening / closing soundtrack is on the head, as well as classical music during battles.

The great charm of the series are its characters that make entertainment enjoyable. The David Production Studio also has several references to Jojo Bizarre Adventure, the company's flagship.

I hope for the success and continuity of this incredible work. The author already has a legion ...

The pacing in the anime is such that I firmly believe that the studio believes they will be making more episodes than Naruto. Story is extremely half-assed and it seems the creator hates the heroes.

The main villains are always spared damage and the heroes take serious damage over and over again. That in itself isn't a bad thing but it is handled almost with comedic relief. The death of villains is handled with care and respect while the death of heroes is handled as a very funny joke. The creators have a sense of humor that makes it feel like it all written by ...

Remembering back when season one dropped, out of nowhere, with no build-up or expectations, solely with its unique and attractive premise, fighter fighting Shounen where they fight fire with ... fire.
It was enough to spike people's interest and hook them on an objectively mediocre seasonal fest that lasted for the while it did, with no outstanding or memorable perspectives to speak of, it was just another seasonal show like many others before it, but unlike most of them, it got a second season due to its popularity in which it changed a few things here and there for the better, making a mediocre show a ...

This season feels somewhat all over the place compared to last season. It touches on some surprisingly profound themes like why religious faith is important to keep in a world losing its hope, and the interdimensional mystery surrounding the Evangelist and White Clad is expounded upon immensely, but it lacks a distinct structure to tie everything together. There are definite moments of character growth, but they sometimes feel kind of forced, as if the original creator realized, "Oh, this side character exists! I need to help him grow before the series ends!"

There seems to be a bit of tonal dissonance as well. While a tiny ...

Fire force was one of the most under-rated show of last year, getting slept on by a lot of people, the animation was great and the world they introduced was very interesting. When a Shounen gets a sequel the 1st thing it needs to do is built upon the characters and world that was settled in the 1st season. Let's see if Fire force season 2 manages this.

STORY: 6/10

Let's start with the good parts: there are a lot of fights and a lot of hyped up moments, the show does well to pull you into the next episode and it ...

Holy shit. What the fuck happened?

Season 1 was probably the most meh shounen anime experience you could have, and with a few weird directing choices, overdrawn awkward jokes, long pauses, disturbing music, it just all mashed up into a messy behemoth. But it was enjoyable, like most of its genre, its nice to just watch something for fun.

I went into season 2 without many expectations. However, it blew me away. Everything just climbed 3 steps up for some reason. The humour, the music, the dialgoue, the story progression, the world building. Suddenly this went from a run of the mill shounen to somewhat of a ...

The only way I can review this is by splitting the season in parts. Part 1: everything before episode 18, Part 2: episode 18, Part 3: everything after episode 18. (TL;DR the first part of the season was a 10, the second part was a 5, and the third part was a 1).

First part:
The first part of the season was spectacular. We're constantly learning something new about the world, and, although it's not quite there yet, you can see how it's all starting to come together. We learn more about the history and geography of the world, as well as the people who inhabit it. ...

Fire Force season 1 was pretty decent in term of story telling and pacing so naturally fans were excited for season 2.
With season 2 now completed there were few hits and a lot of misses with this season.

Hits -
1) art style - the art style and the character design of this anime is truly amazing and unique.

2) Animation - David production did a pretty solid job as this show looks really good and all background environments look pretty well made, plus the fight choreography is also pretty solid.
watch the show on a big screen to do some justice to it.

3) sound design - the ...

If someone were to ask me to choose one word to describe fire force season 2, then I would pick the word, 'Mess'. Usually, I dissect shows and try and find the positives and negatives of the show, but that requires a show to have substance, something that I found lacking in the second season of fire force, but I'll try anyway.

(tldr at the bottom)

The only positives about this season were the character designs and animation of the fights and somewhat interesting story. While the pacing was slow, it wasn't as bad as the Chimera Ant arc from Hunter X Hunter, Dressrossa arc from ...

Okay, I'm going to say it. Fire force and I have a love hate relationship. In the things it does well, it does them REALLY well but in the things it does bad it does them REALLY BAD!

Battle animation and coreyography is beautiful. Characters are interesting both as concepts and designs. The plot is super interesting and fun. But my praise stops there.

This anime has a HUGE problem with tone. It's absolutely all over the place. They seem allergic to dramatic story building moments without ruining the tone with a badly placed joke that brings the emotion of the moment to a screeching halt.

**Spoiler free**

Ill make this review short,

The makers of fire force seem to think that making their anime into a murder mystery is a good idea. I'll tell you right now, it isn't. I have no problem with the story growing more complex over time, it's to be expected. But now it's just a rolling coaster of plot twists. The characters really don't grow much more. The art is still great, music is fine. But I do think what made season 1 special is gone in season 2 (as of now aka episode 13).

Now there are still some good parts, the humor isn't bad. The ...

I hate long reviews.
The world building of first season is expanded. The search for eight pillars continues, main villains - The Evangelists - have come onto the stage, many mysteries both from prior episodes and from current season still stay unanswered.

Shonen story. Animation is good, at times very good, I like the action and fights are pleasing to watch. Characters are typical shonen cast, each with his/her unique characteristic(1), but even then story progression uses them up too quickly.

tl;dr Typical shonen with highly incoherent story that targets viewers short attention spawn, and at times contradicts itself and prays on viewers awe/ignorance of ...

Damn, I'm gonna jump straight in here and say that this anime is so unbelievably gorgeous. Like, the character designs, while their style is specific to this anime, aren't something you won't find a similar match to elsewhere, but everything else about this anime is stunning. The lighting effects (fire, neon, sunlight through glass, etc.) is unparalleled in any other anime I've ever seen, but the architecture and background work in Fire Force is insanity. It has a style that *almost* borders on comic book, and the details and coloring of it all is to die for.

The characters in Fire Force have always called to ...
