Check out what the training-obsessed captain sounds like in the adaptation
Akitaru Ōbi, the Captain of Tokyo's Special Fire Force Company 8, is the latest Fire Force character to be cast for the upcoming TV anime adaptation. Kazuya Nakai (Ryuji in Blue Exorcist, Zoro in One Piece) will be the voice behind the muscular leader, and you can hear a sample in the clip below.
Yuki Yase (Kubikiri Cycle) directs at David Production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) alongside character designer Hideyuki Morioka (Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, Kizumonogatari).
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?
