Anime is prospering right now, thanks to all of the fascinating and visually amazing shows that are out there. When it comes to movies, there’s “Demon Slayer,” which has shattered a few box office records, and “Jujitsu Kaisen,” which has undoubtedly made it one of the most popular anime series ever.
Although “Fire Force,” which features a team of firefighters and a concept of spontaneous combustion, has helped catapult the series to its much-deserved success, we would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge it.
Shinra Kusakabe, a third-generation pyrokinetic with the ability to ignite his feet with fire, stars in the series based on the manga by “Soul Eater” author Atsushi Kubo. Shinra joins forces with the Special Fire Force Company 8 to take on the Infernals, human beings who have spontaneously combusted into blazing hordes.
The second season of “Fire Force” concluded in December 2020 and was one of Amazon Prime Japan’s top five most watched anime television shows (Via Anime News Network). Because “Fire Force” has a devoted following, we’ve gathered as much information as we can regarding the upcoming third season.
Fire Force Season 3: Release Date
There is currently no information available on the official release date or confirmation of “Fire Force” Season 3. On the other hand, due to the fact that the show’s popularity has resulted in a considerable increase in sales of the manga, there is reason to assume that a new season of the series is now being developed, and an announcement regarding this topic could be made very soon.
Late in the month of April, the Official “Fire Force” Anime Twitter stated that the sales of the manga had surpassed 15 million copies by that point. Given the amount of money made from ticket sales, it is obvious that the show is popular enough to support a further season.
Atsushi Kubo has stated that the manga should be concluding in the near future, which may cause a delay in the creation of another season of the anime. During an interview with Monsters And Critics, Okubo revealed that he anticipated the manga to come to a finish somewhere around volume 30, despite the fact that this prediction was subject to change.
In addition, Anime News Network claimed that in the 23rd volume of the manga, Okubo declared that the tale was in its final chapter and that “Fire Force” would be his final manga. Okubo made this announcement in the context of saying that the story was in its final chapter.
Considering that there have already been 28 volumes of the manga published, it is possible that there will be a minor delay in determining exactly when it will come to a conclusion. It is possible that Season 3 will be released at the end of 2021; however, it is more likely that the remaining months of this year will result in an official announcement, and the release will most likely take place at some point during 2022.
Fire Force Season 3: Cast
The cast for “Fire Force” Season 3 has not yet been officially announced. Based on the stability behind the scenes of the show’s first two seasons, it’s likely that the majority of the actors will be back.
The only new characters in the cast were Ogun Montgomery, who was portrayed by Makoto Furukawa (Japanese) and Zeno Robinson (English), and Scop, who was voiced by Tyler Walker (Japanese) and Kentaro Ito (Japanese) (English). The voice cast should still be present, with Gakuto Kajiwara (Japanese) and Derick Snow (English) as Shinra (Via Anime News Network).
The same studio, David Production, should return to animation Season 3 much as it did for the first two seasons. For Season 2 of “Fire Force,” Tatsuma Minamikawa will take over for Yuki Yase as director. Unless otherwise noted, it is expected that Minamikawa will also serve as the show’s director for season 3, in addition to chief animator Kazuhiro Miwa and composer Kenichiro Suehiro.
Fire Force Season 3: Plot
For Season 3 of “Fire Force,” there is still no firm plot information available. Since the anime has largely followed the manga, we can probably predict what Shinra’s third season will involve.
Season 1 of the anime covered volumes 1 through a portion of volume 11, while Season 2 covered the remainder of volume 11 through a portion of volume 20. Unless the anime series deviates into filler territory like “Naruto” or “Bleach,” which would happen if the manga is actually at its conclusion, Season 3 might adapt volume 20 up to the story’s potential conclusion.
The Season 2 finale seems to hint at a future conflict between Company 8 and the Evangelists that might be much more significant. Shinra was pushed in his training to a new level known as “The Press Of Death” in order to get stronger so that he could contend with the Company’s increasingly frightening foes.
The assassination of Captain Hague of Company 4 in the season finale also delivered the heroes a devastating blow. Shinra is able to create an Adolla Link and witness Hague’s final moments’ thanks to his improved degree of ability.
These events will probably be followed in Season 3 as Company 8 teams up with the Tokyo Empire to combat the Evangelist’s formidable soldiers.
