Because there are so many intriguing and gorgeously animated series available today, anime is thriving. For instance, the movie “Demon Slayer” has already broken a few box office records, and “Jujutsu Kaisen” is arguably a must-watch series because it combines traditional shonen action with supernatural elements.
We would be remiss, however, if we failed to mention “Fire Force,” whose original take on a group of firefighters and the idea of spontaneous combustion helped the series achieve its well-deserved popularity.
The series centers on Shinra Kusakabe, a third-generation pyrokinetic with the ability to set his feet on fire, and is based on the manga by “Soul Eater” creator Atsushi Kubo. Shinra teams up with Special Fire Force Company 8, another group of pyrokinetic, to combat Infernals, which are people who have spontaneously combusted into living flames.
The second season of “Fire Force,” which ended in December 2020, rose to the top five most-watched anime television programs on Amazon Prime Japan. Here is everything we currently know about Season 3 of “Fire Force,” as it is obvious that fans are holding out for more of the popular series.
When Will the Third Season of Fire Force Debut?
On May 16, 2022, the show’s official Twitter account made “Fire Force” Season 3 a formality.
We regrettably do not currently have a release date or other development status updates. At least we can maintain our excitement while we wait for Crunchy Roll or Funimation to announce the release date because we didn’t even know for a while if the anime would be renewed for a third season.
With 2022 coming to a close and no new information, “Fire Force” Season 3 appears to debut in early 2023. If “Fire Force” follows the prior two seasons of the anime, which aired in the summer, it might be roughly six months before we see any new episodes.
What is the Third Season of Fire Force’s Story?
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 moment’s 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.
Fire Force Season 3 cast: Who will appear in Season 3?
The cast for “Fire Force” Season 3 has not 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 like 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.
What Manga Should You Read Before Fire Force Season 3?
In both season 1 and season 2 combined, about 20 volumes have been adapted so far. Fans can start reading from chapter 175 if they have completed both of the earlier seasons.
The manga series recently completed its run with the publishing of chapter 304. There is more than enough source material for the third season to utilize. Fans anticipate that a short fourth season could also be in the picture.
Season 3 might adapt volume 20 up to the story’s potential conclusion. The cast for “Fire Force” Season 3 has not been officially announced. Based on the stability behind the scenes of the first two seasons, it’s likely that the majority of the actors will be back.
