Fire has also been an integral part of human life from warming up our food, protecting us from the cold, or lighting the darkness. It can also be destructive, destroying everything in sight. Enen no Shouboutai is one of those shows that tend to flow underneath the radar of the mainstream audience in my opinion. A wonderful show with a unique setting, creative and complex characters all bundled together with great artwork and a fitting soundtrack.
“In the year 198 of the Age of the Sun, Tokyo is a crowded cosmopolis. But the world’s most populous city is threatened by devils that cause people to burst into flame at random. The only ones who can stop it are the Pyrofighters, a team of specialized firefighters. The young Shinra, blessed with the ability to ignite his feet and travel at the speed of a rocket, wants nothing more than to be a hero, and knows that this is the place for him. But he’s not the best at following orders.” – Enen no Shouboutai (manga)
