Synopsis

In a world ravaged by ice and snow, civilization is on the brink of collapse, thanks to the elusive Ice Witch. Fighting against the cold has brought out the worst in humanity, leading to cults, violence, and the persecution of the "Blessed"—those born with supernatural powers.

Agni and Luna—blessed orphans with regenerative powers—are making the best of their situation within a small society of elders; their affection for each other serves as a distraction from the uninhabitable climate. Nevertheless, what little serenity they have is stolen away when army commander Doma passes through and incinerates the village they are seeking refuge in—Agni's beloved sister included. Doma's flames do not extinguish until they have reduced their target to ash, and due to Agni's remarkable regeneration, he remains ablaze and in constant, excruciating pain.

After nearly a decade of enduring the pain, Agni has conditioned himself to tolerate Doma's flames. However, his burning vengeance is as fierce as it was on the day Luna was taken from him. As Agni traverses a frozen wasteland, he vows to avenge his sister and kill Doma.

Feb 20, 2018
Fire Punch rules. A free-wheeling psychedelic commentary on violence (all kinds--physical, sexual, emotional, etc) in media and our relationship with these stories. A manga that treats the traditional narrative and plot hooks of the medium with disdain as if they themselves are an act of opression, bearing down on the lives of its characters. An intelligent and carefully crafted work that refuses easy solutions or simple emotions. A story where a man who fights by hitting bullets with a baseball bat is confronted by a woman in a bikini (the world has frozen over in Fire Punch, a perpetual winter) riding on a katana as ...

Mixed Feelings
Okay, I just finished this today (after taking a long break on it to finish up some things) and I’ve got to say this - do not pay attention to reviews and read this yourself.

At times, I really enjoyed this manga, and other times I couldn’t believe I was still reading it. Some may say that’s a testament to its ability to drag you in and keep you in, but like many of the negative reviews have said, I believe it was mainly because I wanted to see what crazy turn Fujimoto was going to send me down next.

Now, those turns are what makes ...

I initially wanted to do a comprehensive review for Fire Punch. While I hated the experience, I thought maybe there's enough passion and creativity behind it to warrant picking things apart. However, the more time I spent on trying to do that, the less value those elements started to carry, and the more Fire Punch began to look like a plain mess.

It starts with a solid and straightforward premise. Post-apocalyptic frozen world, some people have special powers called blessings, there's allegedly a big bad behind it all, and people are going crazy under these extreme conditions. Then comes a group of people trying to rebuild ...
