2 weeks after, it's back.

More probing on the 8th's side on the 7th and Benimaru whilst the Evangelists getting ready for their next act.

But the true act of the Evangelists, Benimaru mistook them for the 8th, it's like he has only brawn with no brains. And there's only an eye for an eye, captain for captain, to solve this issue.

Seems exact as I remember 2 weeks ago of the same slow feel of the narration and action. But hell to Benimaru, his pissed-off behaviour sure is unsightly.

This is probably best episode so far


But one thing I don't like about this anime is that you can't easily remember what is happening. The way anime presents things make it hard to remember. I was wondering who is that Kantaro guy they keep talking about. Then I went back and rewatched 2nd half of episode 11 at 2x speed. It turns out Kantaro is just random guy who become infernal.

Do people here get confused and forget things when they watch this anime like me ???! I still remember a lot of details in Attack on titan and JoJo golden wind, but in this anime I often forget what happened in last episodes.

Me too, I forgot the previous episode.

I enjoyed this series well it gets better every episode

But why am I forget the previous episode? weird

Thanks, bro :o good conclusion

Good episode, captain vs captain was great. Loved Obi here and he is cool in that armor, even without powers he can fight head on witha captain like Benimaru. Looking forward for more 7th company background, especially Benimaru and Konro.

Have been considering dropping this for a while but this was one of the better episodes, hopefully it can rebound in its second half.

Waited a very long time and the episode did not disappoint. Loved how we got the see what else the bad guys can do. That fight scene was intense. Getting to know some of the supporting characters in depth is very nice. Wonder when we will see Shinra and his brother together.

Glad Fire Force is back. I think the mini break and unclear direction of the plot is making some people wary about dropping, but I hope most stick around. I hope the anime straightens out in its second half because I feel like it has lots of potential.

For this episode, def agree with those saying the transform into another person thing is super cliché and that the whole premise of the fight was dumb. They probably wanted to have the captains fight one another, but over this? Okay, sure.

Let's get the story back on track, please. Regardless, I plan to stick it out.

Great episode! Without a doubt. It was worth waiting two weeks. Damn Evangelist, they set them up. For a moment, I truly believed that Captain Obi and Lieutenant Hinawa had betrayed them, but then the truth came to light, they do not know the great relief that was for me, otherwise, the betrayal would have been a great blow to they. other members of the Eighth, especially for Shinra who has placed his trust in them.
Captain Shinmon is incredibly strong, and that he did not fight with all his strength because he had come to trust the Eighth, yet Captain Obi could face it, but if it were not for Lieutenant Konro, Captain Obi could get seriously injured . In addition, in this episode they revealed the danger of exceeding pyrokinesis, Tephrosis. Poor Lieutenant Konro, he put his life at risk again to avoid further conflict, he is a great person. The end of the episode left me very intrigued, that infernal that appeared in front of Shinmon and Konro really looked like a demon. I was looking forward to more, I will look forward to the next episode. I hope that the serious problem between the Seventh and the Eighth will be fixed, and the truth will be discovered. Damn Evangelists!.

Ps: Next week new OP and ED, I hope they are just as great or better than the current ones.

It's been a while, Fire Force.
-I would understand helping with the repairs, had they been dished purely out by an Infernal, but if these retards want to destroy the town every time someone turns, then count me out. They gotta learn a lesson somehow.
-Besides, I don't really see these guys being able to fix up the town on time every time before the next Infernal attack. How is Asakusa not in a state of constant construction.
-Really cool fight this episode.
-I doubt Benimaru will end up trusting Company 8 again, even if they get their names cleared.
Looks like the villain's may get their way on this one. These guys are some cunning bastards. Hopefully we won't get too many more hiatuses.

A touch of Monogatari in this episode.

And we got to see more of Benimaru in action. Merely a fragment of his power again, but I'm looking forward to see him go all out at some point.

Nice episode overall and feels good to have this back.


>A touch of Monogatari in this episode.
That's pretty much every episode more or less, but I definitely felt the Monogatari vibes strongly in this one.

Man, it's back of a long hiatus........So, I could have sworn that the Captain of the 8th did said about making infernals.


That was one of the bad guys in a disguise. I hope you're not speedwatching bro.

Smit_Vaidya said:


the literal first thing the show said about the 7th is that they operate outside the organization, the reason he is the captain is because the town trusts him and the town as a whole is antagonistic to everyone else, it hardly a surprise he is too.


Still, if a town trusts an idiot that vaguely accuses people from things they didn't do without doing a proper investigation, let me tell you that whole town and squad are a bunch of retards.


>let me tell you that whole town and squad are a bunch of retards.
I mean, that much seemed obvious with the whole constant destruction thing, haha.
Asakusa in this anime definitely has a 3rd world attitude.

I haven't had that problem with this show, but I absolutely have that problem often. It always seems to be the most important things too! Like I'll remember some stupid shit like a character's favorite color or birthday, but forget a huge plot-point. Especially if it's been a while since the last episode (like a season in-between)

Let me quess what happened benimaru had more than just one line he had many lines in this episode where he kinda talked a lot but amongs all this you had to found the one thing like trying to find a needle under a ton of straw.

I am gonna be honest with you man just drop it like i see you trying to hard to convence yourself to the point a character says 10 things but even if those 10 things are decent you will try so hard to find that 1 thing among the 10 where it may be bad and you are acting really weird.

Like if so far you didn't liked this arc dropped it like to you this kinda nonesense line he said was so extreme to the point you say the entire episode is shit like yeah
just drop it you will be free from this.

May i suggest something? Better drop anime in general i see you are tired of this
better start reading some stephen king or some serious author like you are in the point you are so tired of seen and reading this type of childish clitche craps you are about to burst.

Let me guess what you are, a dumbass fanboy who can't take any criticism or deviating opinions. It's stupid dialogue. Deal with it. You watched the episode, you try explaining how those lines aren't at all contradictory or stupid.

I am going to be honest with you, if you don't like comments, IGNORE THEM. Stop telling people to drop shit just because you don't like what they say, stop bitching at every single person who doesn't like what you like, stop trying to convince everyone they're wrong and you're right and that X show is the best show ever, that none of their complaints or criticism are fair, and stop trying to pretend you're smart enough to psychoanalyze strangers on the internet. Because hey, everyone has got that shit figured out but you.

Normally I don't do this because it's low hanging fruit, but for the sake of anyone unfortunate enough to receive a message from you, learn how to punctuate and how grammar works, Jesus Christ. I've seen monkeys dancing on keyboards write better responses.

Funny how the show fits on the other foot.


Pretty based reply. I haven't seen such a great execution in a while. Respect to you.

I didn’t really like it, the animation during the fight seem pretty bad. Benimaru seem an interesting character but I think he’s too much impulsive, however he had a good reason this time.

The whole episode was extremely stupid. I really hate how lately these action shounen always have this over the top characters that are really strong but their judgement is clouded by hatred, how the F does these people get accepted as the leader of their squads? The same shit happened with KnY's Hashiras, like, I get they might have gotten through fucked up shit, but an organization shouldn't have these kind of people that are easily clouded by hatred on the top spot.

This episode's conflict could have been avoided easily by talking things out, this just felt dragged for cliffhanger purposes.


You may want to read the dialogues more carefully because what you're adressing is precisely touched upon as a plot point... Benimaru is insecure about deserving the captain title and he thinks Konro should be the captain. He has been chosen as captain by Asakusa and the empire due to his strength but he deems himself not worthy otherwise.

If he KNOWS he isn't good at it, why does he get himself into situations he KNOWS he can't deal with? It still doesn't change the fact that it is a very stupid cliché, no matter what.
If you find yourself disagreeing, please, don't do the following:

1. Call out on some superiority complex.
2. Rely on "If you don't like then don't watch it" in an attempt to defend your statements
3. Resorting to insults.

Ok now we went to the classic bullshit since you don't know how to counter my statement you are like "ok let's insult his grammar"
Like you think your's is better. I am betting you are using punctuation checker and you try to play now that your grammar is so amazing!!!!


1rst of all dummy if i was a fanboy of the series, i would had tried to persuade you to keep watching it instead i am 100% realistic

I saw that from episode 1 you disliked it so here you are 12 episodes later you still watch it.

Not only that!!! You never bother to say anything possitive like all you freaking do is just say negatives.

I don't mind you criticizing the negatives but i never read any comment of you where you bother saying something was done decent so you are willgly to admit there are mistakes but you never acknowledge the decent.


I am betting that when you watch a fire force episode you are like: " ok le's find the one thing that will be negative even if that is not that much of a negative just to say some bullshit"


Like look at you do you know how many line benimaru had? and you had to pick out the one specific that you found bad and you are like " ok that 1 line was stupid i am done"

Tell me something if someone you know have a discussion and he says you 10 things and from 10 things he says something stupid are like " ok you are stupid i am done you may said 9 good things but that one thing you just said made me to change my mind fuck off" even if the other 9 were good?

Now i advice you to stop murdering yourself by watching an anime you don't even like since all you do is bitch and bitch and bitch and you pretty much watch the episode, just to bitch and say how you don't like this.

You are like mad because i told you to drop it but hey!!! Continue torturing yourself ,i am gonna bring my popcorns and enjoy you struggling in each episode you keep watching.

I as well found that line none sense but you don't hear me bitching about that because i didn't found it like it destroyed the story structure or somethingbut do you want me to admit it?

I have the balls to do it yes that line benimaru said was stupid

Happy now? You think i won't criticize stuff i don't like? perhaps you didn't saw some of my older comments

I always criticize stuff i don't like how they were done and this show is not perfect but there are some moments where some are failing to realise stuff as they see the tree and they cannot see the forest.

Like with hibana oh boy i remember how 90% of the comments where how hibana was some a stupid character or a simple character or her progression was her start believing in god again or some other bullshits people's came up with as conclusions.

I agree on both accounts. The Hashiras in Kimetsu no Yaiba felt so high and mighty with not even a drop of common sense. In Fire Force Benimaru goes against what cemented his character, as a level headed leader that a whole town trusts him with their own lives. But he completely forgets this and acts in the most irrational way with the most basic ruse.

Staph it man, he's already on the ground.

J/K





Who is on the ground? Because he insulted my grammar?

I am get used to be insulted for my grammar it is i won't lost like 1 hour writing a comment just to put (,) or (.)

But how about what i said? He watched an anime where in each episode he always tries to find a needle under a ton of straw to complain.

My point stands and he knows it even if he insulted my grammar on purpose and even if it is not my place to tell him what to do but deep inside he knows that he is murdering himself by watching something he never liked to begin with but he keeps watching it only because i don't know he has an obligation i quess to watch it until the end despite how much he dislikes it?

The whole thing was because he mentioned a specific line benimaru said the thing is benimaru said like 10 or 20 things but because he didn't liked than 1 thing that to be honest it was explained in the anime.

Benimaru says that they respect power so if they would win then it means that benimaru was wrong as it is in the japanese honor or something that the winner is always righteous and the loser wrong.

if he wants to do some right criticism then he should start explaining more than just: that character said that line:".... and yeah i disliked the entire episode because tha one line was weird and i failed to understood it ".

You do realize I covered your other bullshit before I covered your grammar? Are you going to pretend the two paragraphs preceding the one covering your grammar don't exist? And yes, I do think my grammar is better than "your's". No I don't use a punctuation checker, I just put in the effort to make what I say readable and actually attended 8th grade English class.

Now, I could, actually did, respond to your bulllshit step by step, but instead of making that the focus (because let's be honest, none of what you said really has any substance), I'll just say this. Perhaps discard your obvious alt troll account that was made like 2 months ago and has almost nothing on it and say all this stupid shit on your main account so we can all know who is this stupid, who the idiot going around harassing people is when that account invariably gets banned.

There's a reason a couple of people have laughed at and supported what I said, telling your dumbass off, and not a single person, even fans of this series, have supported you. It's because your comments, trolls or not, are a bad joke; they are unfunny, stupid, lacking substance and fail to make any coherent point. It's because you yourself clearly have no idea what is going on, and have attitude of a 6 year old throwing a tantrum. Simply put, either bad troll is bad, and needs a hobby. And a life. Or, you're a pathetic and unhinged fanboy who needs a mental hospital and to go outside, because holy shit, it'd be tragic if the comment I'm responding to was said unironically.

Man, I was waiting for Obi to (kinda... well, I guess "barely" might be more accurate) deal out some ass-kicking. Seriously, I love me some heavy-armoured badasses.

Although, I'm also not a fan of the "pretend to be them to gain mistrust, ho-ho-ho", it just feels... cheap? I just can't see it as effective in terms of entertaining the audience.

Still, glad the show is back, and I can still get a good amount of enjoyment, but I got a feeling No Guns Life might win me over in terms of favour.

Dislikes: Bad romance, too much fanservice, the harem genre, yuri, yaoi, and bad writing.

Get himself in situations? Like he purposefully came upon impostors that had lured him into a ploy? Maybe he could just not leave his house ever lol

Edit: also remember that tropes are not bad. Just saying "it's a bad cliché" is not meaningful, you need to explain why it is used in a bad way/has bad results here.

I did not say it was a bad cliché, I'm saying it's stupid. And I did not mean that he should have known those were impostors, the problem here is that he started a fight and forced them to fight him for something he wasn't sure of, rushing to conclusions and not listening to them when they tried to make him attend to reason.

This cliché not only happens on action shounen but do happen even in romance. Its a terrible cliché to rely on, as it only functions as a device to force drama and most of the times I've seen this it's executed poorly and has little to no relevance to the plot. Hell, even one of my favorite romance has this cliché, but it turns out well because at least the other side deserved the tantrum.

Willing to bet the doppelgangers were using fire or something to perfectly mimic the captain and lieutenant. After that one guy made fucking ICE with fire and sound anything is possible

As much as I like Benimaru, him being my favorite character, that part of him not listening to them was fucking stupid. He let his anger take control. Bad trait as a leader. If his own friend, Konro, didn't step him and try to reason out by sacrificing his own health and life, he wouldn've annihilated them.

Anyways, don't you guys love subtle gay relationships in shounen? The relationship between Konro and Benimaru tho. Even when I read the manga, I was hmm, yep, they're so gay for each other. Neither have girlfriends or wives. They definitely have a thing for each other lol
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

The show's back but no new opening song yet. We'll be getting one next month probably.

They said that the new opening will start on episode 15.
Yah, I've read about that too.

Lol, I got KnY vibes from Benimaru. Iai chop, Seventh form. A good episode all and all, the fight scenes were nicely animated and the comedy is still there.

Was a great episode, talking about what make a leader and how they can influence people, and how sometimes we don't realize that maybe we are leaders for someone and we can help them. Be a good leader

The MC scene when he say that even if his power belongs to evil, He'll use it to save people. Another good message.

I loved how that brawl was between two captains, even if one lacks power and the other excels at it the most. It shows that being a captain isn't always about having the flashiest fire control.
I wonder how they could replicate Obi and the lieutenant's bodies. Maybe creating an illusion with fire? Making a play on haze bending? I don't know.
That infernal was very reminiscent of the one from Shinra's backstory.
I wonder if it's the same one, which means that these dudes happened to be at the same place where Shinra was. Or it could mean that Infernals can vary in term of power level, which reflects on their appearance. I don't know.
