Story of Fire Force Seasons 1 & 2
In a realm where humans are unexpectedly combusting, and transforming into demons in the process, an extraordinary fire brigade must take action. Shinra Kusakabe, a pyrokinetic teen with the alias “Devil’s Footprints”, volunteers to join Special Fire Force Company 8. His mission is twofold: prevent further infernal rampages and uncover details of what transpired twelve years ago when his family members suddenly perished.
In order to save humanity from the cursed blaze and finally solve this mysterious fire, Shinra and his company investigate various fire squads. However, they quickly become entangled in a web of corruption, fraudulence, and control.
The second season of Fire Force ended with complete pandemonium. Tokyo was ablaze and intruders were taking over the city, while Captain Hague from Company 4 had unfortunately perished. Shinra’s ongoing training to gain superhuman strength enabled him to have a vision of Adolla that allowed him to witness the captain’s final moments up close.
Season 3 is anticipated to showcase Tamaki and Company 8 as they form coalitions with different groups in Tokyo, providing much-needed support against the White Clad and the Evangelist.
