Interesting Facts

  1. Some anime fans remember the incident when a fire broke out at Kyoto Animation studio on July 18, 2019. The reason for the destruction of the building was an arson committed by an unknown man who, during his actions, shouted about the novel stolen from him. Due to the tragedy that claimed the lives of 33 anime studio employees, the release of Episode 3 of Season 1 of “Fire Force” was postponed from July 19 to July 26, 2019.
  2. The manga was written by Atsushi Okubo. Another of his popular works is the manga “Soul Eater”, which has also been adapted into anime. Okubo is best known for creating the cover art for the video game “Lord of Vermilion”.
  3. Season 1 of the anime is directed by Yuki Yase. In Season 2, he was replaced by the equally experienced Tatsuma Minamikawa. Among his popular works are “Chihayafuru”, “Attack on Titan“, “Wave, Listen to Me!” and others. Therefore, the change of director will not affect the quality of season 2 in any way.
