Saeko Kamijou Joins Fire Force TV Anime's Cast

Meet the skilled Fire Soldier in a new promo


In Atsushi Ohkubo's Fire Force manga, Maki Oze is a Second Generation Fire Soldier with some serious hand-to-hand combat skills. She's also the focus of the latest casting update, which has Saeko Kamijou joining the anime adaptation to voice her. 


You can hear a sample in the latest promo:


If you missed it, last week's addition was M.A.O. as the nun named Iris. 


Yuki Yase (Kubikiri Cycle) serves as director, alongside character designer Hideyuki Morioka (Sayonara, Zetsubou-SenseiKizumonogatari). Its premiere schedule in Japan has not yet been announced.


Kodansha publishes the manga in English and describes it like so: 


The city of Tokyo is plagued by a deadly phenomenon: spontaneous human combustion! Luckily, a special team is there to quench the inferno: The Fire Force! The fire soldiers at Special Fire Cathedral 8 are about to get a unique addition. Enter Shinra, a boy who possesses the power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving behind the famous “devil’s footprints” (and destroying his shoes in the process). Can Shinra and his colleagues discover the source of this strange epidemic before the city burns to ashes?
