David Production’s TV anime adaptation of Soul Eater creator Atsushi Ohkubo’s Fire Force manga is just a few months away, and regular updates have been rolling out in the meantime in the form of cast additions. The latest introduces another red hot visual, as some of the members of Special Fire Force Company 8 prepare to go to work battling the strange epidemic of spontaneous human combustion.
Yuki Yase directs the anime at JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure studio David Production, and it’s set to air in Japan starting on July 5. Check out the new visual below.
Here’s Funimation’s recent “Intro to the world of Fire Force” promo:
Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English and describes it like so:
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?
