Pyrokinetic and Special Fire Force Company 5 captain joins the cast
With the Fire Force anime set to debut on July 5, there's still plenty of time for cast announcements. The latest to be revealed has Lynn (Nozomi in Keijo!!!!!!!!, Kotoko in Music Girls) stepping into the role of Princess Hibana, a pyrokinetic who serves as the captain of Special Fire Force Company 5.
Previous cast announcements include:
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?
