In Tokyo Fire Department's Fire Academy, a talented new rookie is excelling in the strict and grueling rescue training. With high proficiency in both physical and mental categories, Daigo Toake is envied by one of his peers, Shun Onoda. Despite feeling a growing sense of rivalry, Shun recognizes that a part of his jealousy stems from his admiration for Daigo, and that they will eventually work together for the same noble goal of rescuing people.

At the same time, Yuki Nakamura is the only woman among the current batch of recruits. She believes that she will not be outclassed in this male-dominated profession. As the fates of the three newbies intertwine, they may soon realize that the intensity of a real disaster is nowhere near what they have experienced in training. Even so, the heroes in orange will always shine brighter than any fire, saving those in need.

Yes, the series been hobbled by the long cap at the start of every episode usually about 5 to 6 minutes long including the OP song. When it gets going the story is good. Plus two recap episodes at episode 12.5 and 17.5 have drive many fans crazy and abandon the series.

The anime is about a trio of firefighters of the Tokyo Fire Department (TFD) - ...

Mixed Feelings
I don't think there are much anime about firefighters, so I decided to give Megumi no Daigo a chance. I wasn't ever really into firefighting (and Megumi no Daigo is not strictly about firefighting, it's actually about rescue), so I wasn't super excited about this anime, I just thought "huh, that sound pretty fun". This also wasn't a very anticipated, hyped-up anime and it still has a very modest number of users on MAL.

I haven't read the manga, nor have I watched the Kajiba no Baka Yarou prequel, so I was going in completely blank. And as with many small-budget anime, this one is a ...

Sorry I mean Megumi no Daigo: Kyuukoku no Orange (2023)

This show, honestly, I am so glad it is over. I don't know what people were thinking about commissioning this since there are so many better stories you could do. The show suffers badly from its storyline, lets watch people do a job but make it slightly over the top for entertainment but keep that line. They could have made a show about watching accountants do accounting and suddenly a last-minute client turns up and the music starts. It would be the same vibe as this show.

This is my worst show ...
