Fire Force Anime Has Satoshi Hino Playing the Laid Back Foien Li

Another cast member revealed ahead of the adaptation's July 5 premiere


We've still got a few months to go before the July 5 premiere of the Fire Force anime, which adapts the manga by Soul Eater creator Atsushi Ohkubo. That means there's plenty of time for more cast announcements, and the latest has Satoshi Hino (Kamui in Gintama, Sai in Naruto Shippuden) playing chill Fire Brigade priest Foien Li.


Foien Li is a gentle-hearted and kind character who doesn't like to waste time on meaningless fighting. He joins a pretty loaded cast, so see who else is in the show so far below. 

Kazuyuki Okitsu as Karim Fulham

Tomokazu Seki as Rekka Hoshimiya


Taiten Kusunoki as Leonard Burns


Aoi Yuki as Tamaki Kotatsu

Daisuke Sakaguchi as Victor

Kenjiro Tsuda as Joker


Kazuya Nakai as Akitaru Ōbi


Kenichi Suzumura as Takehisa Hinawa


Saeko Kamijou as Maki Oze


M.A.O. as Iris


Yusuke Kobayashi as Arthur Boyle


Gakuto Kajiwara as Shinra Kusakabe


Yuki Yase (Kubikiri Cycle) directs at David Production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) alongside character designer Hideyuki Morioka (Sayonara, Zetsubou-SenseiKizumonogatari).

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?
