Fire Force to Stream on Crunchyroll this July 2019

On Tuesday, Crunchyroll announced that it will be simulcasting Atsushi Ohkubo’s Fire Force this summer season. The Weekly Shōnen hit is slated for July 5th and will be animated by David Production.

Fire Force features a very diverse and notable cast that includes:

  • Gakuto Kajiwara (Asta in Black Clover) as Shinra Kusakabe
  • Yūsuke Kobayashi (Subaru Natsuki in Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World) as Arthur Boyle
  • M.A.O (Shion in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) as Iris
  • Kazuya Nakai (Hijikata Toshirou in Gintama and Roronoa Zoro in One Piece) as Akitaru Ōbi
  • Aoi Yuki (Kayo Hinazuki in ERASED and Madoka Kaname in Puella Madoka Magica) as Tamaki Kotatsu

The series is directed by Yuki Yase and the series composition is handled by Yamato Haishima. Hideyuki Morioka, known for his work in Kizumonogatari and Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, will be the character designer.

Crunchyroll describes the show as:

Tokyo is burning, and citizens are mysteriously suffering from spontaneous human combustion all throughout the city! Responsible for snuffing out this inferno is the Fire Force, and Shinra is ready to join their fight. Now, as part of Company 8, he’ll use his devil’s footprints to help keep the city from turning to ash! But his past and a burning secret behind the scenes could set everything ablaze.
