An official website opened for a TV anime adaptation of Atsushi Ookubo's sci-fi action manga Enen no Shouboutai (Fire Force) on Wednesday. The series will be produced by animation studio David Production.

Synopsis
The city of Tokyo is plagued by a deadly phenomenon: spontaneous human combustion! Luckily, a special team is there to quench the inferno: The Fire Force! The fire soldiers at Special Fire Cathedral 8 are about to get a unique addition. Enter Shinra, a boy who possesses the power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving behind the famous "devil's footprints" (and destroying his shoes in the process). Can Shinra and his colleagues discover the source of this strange epidemic before the city burns to ashes? (Source: Kodansha Comics)

Ookubo launched Enen no Shouboutai in Weekly Shounen Magazine in September 2015, two years after ending the serialization of Soul Eater. Kodansha shipped the 14th volume on August 17. The 15th compiled volume will go on sale this Friday.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English in July 2016 and published the 12th volume on October 16. The 13th volumes is planned for a December 14 release.

A mix of Blood Blockade Battlefront with Soul Eater and firefighting. Looks intriguing.

Why do you hate this manga though?

besides it hitting almost every single cliche in the shounen universe? nothing much.

Freaking finally!!!!!

Lel I was about to give up on an adaptation on this. Not sure about the studio..... Would've preferred studio Bones on this tbh. But hopefully they'll do good.

i do not know much about David Production but can they animate nice action scenes like BONES did with Soul Eater?

Nah, not so good..

Looking forward to it

Was just about to start the manga... well, I'll wait for the adaptation.

David Production? Kinda overrated but by no means bad.

Looking forward to it

Awesome. Not as good as soul eater, but it's still a good manga and should be a good anime. Plus David Production, this should be.....interesting....

Heard some mixed opinions of the manga but i enjoyed Soul Eater so might try it. It sounds cool.

I think its most likely going to be airing in Spring 2019

Why do you think that?

Was wondering when this would get an adaptation when I saw some article for a fire fighter anime. I'm feeling pretty hyped for this, even though the manga is a little meh.
Since it's David Production, not going to have to worry about graphic quality. Only concern is how well they will animate the action scenes, if they go past a 2-cour atleast.

Either way, Enen no Shouboutai being animated is going to be "lit".
