Fire Force
Volume 1


Still reeling from the childhood trauma of losing his family to a blaze, Shinra Kusakabe endures both the blessing and curse of being a third-generation pyrokinetic: a person gifted with the ability to freely control fire.

Meanwhile, the Infernals—first-generation pyrokinetics who spontaneously combust into flaming, demonic creatures—ravage the streets of Tokyo. After he is recognized for his abilities, Shinra joins Special Fire Force Company 8, one of many fire brigades developed to combat these Infernals.

Although working with the Fire Force seems to have fulfilled a calling, Shinra learns that becoming a hero is not as easy as it seems. Infernal sightings are worsening across the country, and his own fellow brigadiers struggle to unite against these threats. To make matters worse, Shinra's past returns to haunt him after he confronts a mysterious cult. As he endeavors to reach the truth, Shinra soon finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy that aims to engulf the world in flames.

story, 9: this is quite possibly the most batshit insane thing ive ever read and i loved every part of it, i legitimately cant even describe the last 60 or so chapters, it was like a rollercoaster that had me genuinely smiling like shinra the whole time, there were some chapters where i realized i was holding my breath for most of it. im not even going to try to explain how insane, as in abstract, the story is, you just have to read it, but at the same time it delivers a GRAND but concise and easy to follow plot with twists thatll have ...

Mixed Feelings
Fire Force… The second big hit of Atsushi Ookubo. To tell the whole story, when I started to read this manga, I did not know it was the same author as for ‘Soul Eater’. Which is important, because I was literally traumatized by the ‘fist of friendship defeating the biggest evil of the whole universe’ of the Anime… So I have never read the manga, (even if I know it is different in many ways than the Anime), and after I realized it I was a bit shocked, because it was really good! However, I soon experienced my fear was not unfounded!

Short version

A very promising premise, a world of "fire," human combustion, mysterious events, and a growth worthy of a good Shonen. However, shortly after the halfway point of the story, it loses the essence that envelops you and invites you to keep reading. It becomes boring at times and too lengthy towards the end.

There are moments that attempt to be comedic, but within the series' context of sadness and seriousness, these moments feel out of place and are not amusing; they can even be cringe-inducing.

Certain characters have nonsensical moments that are used for their growth, but because these moments lack coherence, their development loses strength.

Despite the ...
