While the Infernals are first generation cases of spontaneous human combustion, later generations possess the ability to manipulate flames while retaining human form. Shinra Kusakabe, a youth who gained the nickname Devil's Footprints for his ability to ignite his feet at will, joins the Special Fire Force Company 8 which composes of other flames users as they work to extinguish any Infernals they encounter. As a faction that is creating Infernals appears, Shira begins to uncover the truth behind a mysterious fire that caused the death of his family twelve years ago.

    Watched the first episode, the concept is very interesting but the thing that really has my attention is Shinra - he’s a protagonist with huge potential for growth, both physically and emotionally. Will def keep an eye on this series

    Ummm an anime all about fire? Where do I sign up? I’ve got to at least see how they handle it. Even if the writing is crap (which the description looks like they’ve got some interesting premises), the imagery should be good for some light watching if I’m not trying to exercise my mind. ^_^

    By the way, I’ve watched the first two episodes of this and it’s awesome. Imagery does not disappoint; there’s conflicts and various intrigues on levels beyond the basics that draw you into the story. The writer seems to have at least a semblance of an idea how to capture the complexities of first responders while adding in a layer of fantasy that simply highlights the humanity of the characters rather than detracts/distracts from it. Very BTVS.

    So when did this show become a harem? lol Seriously though... I’m still loving every second of it!! This might be from episode 8 but whatever, I wanna be a hero like Shinra if I get the girls to look at me like this:

    This isn’t good. They’re definitely building up all the animosity by doing some shady stuff and it’s getting ugly—quickly. Of course the numb skulls are having issues fighting together. Why would they be able to get their act together and coordinate? Arthur being cocky about his stupidity was great. Shinra and his hero business is still touching—the line about “until you find something you really care about” was of interest as it implies there’s something he’d care about enough to not risk himself for others anymore. We’ll see if that day ever comes.
