A new action fantasy set in a steampunk Tokyo from the creator of the smash hit Soul Eater!


Shinra and the other soldiers working Operation Chinese Landing have arrived at the Oasis, a mysterious forest thriving in the middle of a barren wasteland. But what’s even more surprising than the talking animals that live there is the edifice at its center—a power plant identical to the miracle machine that provides energy for the Tokyo Empire. Can the team find out the secrets of this Tabernacle before the Infernal invaders destroy the whole forest?

Series Overview: 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…

Likely candidate for future anime adaptation

An ensemble cast of firefighters (and one nun) and an action-packed story gives Pyrofighters the broad shonen appeal of a Bleach or Fairy Tail.

The new flagship series of Weekly Shonen Magazine (home of Fairy Tail).

Vol. 1 came out in Feb. 2016, Kodansha expects sales of 200,000 copies this year!

The new series from the creator of the bestselling 25-volume Soul Eater, which was adapted into a hit anime by Bones studio that was a mainstay of Cartoon Network’s Toonami block, and was released on DVD and Bluray by Funimation!

Ages 13+

Atsushi Ohkubo made his manga debut in 2001. In 2004, he created Soul Eater, which would run for seven years and become an international bestseller, later adapted into a hit anime broadcast on Cartoon Network. Fire Force is his first manga for Kodansha Comics.
