In the not-too- distant past, the Ice Witch blanketed the world in snow, starvation and madness, leading the inhabitants to seek their salvation in fire. With that, an unusual destiny unfolds for two young orphans, Agni and Luna, blessed with the ability to regenerate. But will this ability prove to be more of a curse than a blessing?
This review is based chapters 00-28 and has spoilers for chapter 00.
The world has been frozen over by the Ice Witch, with this world turned into madness and chaos. The few remaining humans left are left starving and freezing to death, but there are a select few with powers called "blessings". Agni and his sister Luna are both blessed ones with the power of regeneration, though Agni's is a lot faster compared to his sister's. With his instantaneous regeneration Agni decides to cut off his arm multiple times a day to feed the people of his village. But then soliders from the city Behemdorg led
by Doma had came to get supplies. After searching the homes of the villagers they found the Agni's arms. Doma decides to burn the village (with his power of fire) because cannibals aren't human. Time skip 8 years later and Agni has now become a never dying flaming man, who swears his revenge on Doma for destroying his village.
•Fire Punch is great read for shounen fans.
•Has a lot of symbolism/references to religion. Agni is the name of the MC which is also the name of ther fire god Agni in Hinduism is an example.
•Story and plot is very cliche and might turn off a few people.
•Some of the characters are and seem way to unrealistic.
•Is being public in Shounen Jump which has a track record of dumping series that dip down in popularity, which gives it a chance to be axed before it even finishes.
Welp I started reading this series called Fire Punch and the first chapter is probably the most absurd and gratuitously savage thing I've read in a while.
The world is so fucking cold and there is some dude who has regeneration powers. He rips his arm off in order to feed his people. Soldiers come to enslave them. The sergeant, who has the power to burn all out, decides to destroy and sacrifice all the town, so the regenerating guy is permanently burned while he regenerates, suffering for 8 years and over until he gets to dominate his regenerative power
and decides to walk on fire taking revenge on people.
Oh, and between all this there is a crappy incest with his sister. 10/10 IGN
For some unknown reason then I felt like continuing reading, and now somehow I want to know what will happen next. Also, there is like some kind of odd anticlimatic comedy which I kinda liked. Although I'm not sure if this comedy is intentional or just the author's ill mind. I remember one scene when there was a naked boy and a dog started like licking his genitals. Laughed my ass off, I gotta say.
Not much more to say. The art is pretty good, but the distribution of bubbles, drawings and panels is kinda confusing sometimes, so as the dialogues are. This last might be because of the fansub. Dunno.
Fire punch is a series that deserves more popularity. It's quite a unique series as compared to majority of mainstream Shonen's. It's very unconventional and I feel is probably misunderstood here in mal's community as being edgy and without substance, which is just not true, I feel it deserves a higher rating then the current 6.9
The Manga is set in a post apocalyptic / ice age setting with few people left alive. Few of the important characters of this series are very interesting. Life has become a struggle for survival and a number of important characters are on the brink of insanity. The
futures for these characters seems grim, and the events that occur seem crazy. Amongst all this there's also some interesting commentary on religion and beliefs as well.
The protagonist seeks revenge for the tragedy that he faced, and the story goes on with this as his main motivation. The artwork is good with sufficient detailing and well drawn scenes.
Overall for me this series is one of the best new series as of the time of this review. I love series with great art and that have enough uniqueness to differentiate themselves from the rest. In a market where most shonen's follow similar templates, this one is refreshing. Moreover the characters alone are interesting enough to keep me invested in this series, and will probably read this till the end. I'm gonna give Fire Punch an 8
Very good manga
If you like Deep Dark plot , and tragedy with superheroes this is defintelly for you .
The whole plot is that in the world there are superpowers that some people born with , and as always a bad guy called Ice Witch , froze everything , and people dont have food , water . they stragle to live . then the army find a village that our main character is , and burn it all . then our main character Agni , becomes a living fire-man with a very painfull and mercyless process and thats Fire Punch . A REVENGE STORY ! but
its not like the common stories . it has a lot of interesting characters , some are crazy , other perverted , other cute . I defintelly recommend this manga ! ITS AWESOME , and it has a lot of plot-twists
