Synopsis of Fire Force
Terror has paralyzed the inhabitants of Tokyo after a phenomenon known as “spontaneous combustion” began to turn its inhabitants into a kind of flaming demons called infernal. Despite this, some people are able to handle flames and maintain their human form, thus giving them special abilities that divide them into first, second, and third generation pyrokinetics.
Within this chaos, our protagonist Shinra Kusakabe, a third generation pyrokinetic, joins the Eighth Company of the Fire Force Special Unit, which seeks to discover the truth behind the phenomenon of human combustion.
