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.

What was once a promising and excellent progressing story crashed and burned as quickly as Shinra when he first started honing as pyrotechnic abilities.

Everything was going swimmingly until the last 100 or so chapters, where all the previous plot development and ESPECIALLY world-building was just thrown out the window for a lazy excuse of a final arc.

Lazy fights with lazy powerups, dead characters being retconned left and right, and horribly written dialogue that amounts to "I AM EDGY PAIN PAIN PAIN" vs. "I AM GOD BOOOOOOM." It's beyond me how such poor quality work was allowed to be printed, and even more painful to realize ...

Let's get straight to the review and no bullshit.

Great and engaging story with an interesting concept that definitely gives one a "Woah, what the hell" or "That's sick" and a wholesome smile knowing that this all ties in like a bow on a Christmas present for the Soul Eater and Fire Force universe. If you've read Soul Eater it's kinda mandatory to read this if anything. Because, well, Fire Force is the prequel to Soul Eater. Everything about this story is generally great, but one thing that weighs it down just a tiny bit is the characters. God damn, some of the characters are uninteresting ...

Mixed Feelings
Fire Force is an enigma. I've legitimately never seen anything that tried as hard as it did, yet still feels like it's not trying hard enough at the same time.

Fire Force is a pretty standard battle shounen which, to be completely fair, had very interesting ideas. The plot is pretty simple: Shinra lives a world where spontaneous human combustion is a widespread issue, and joins a fire brigade to protect others from these fiery monsters that are created as a result, as well as his own motivations of possibly finding the truth of combustion and what happened on the day his mother and brother died ...
