Another enigmatic character gets in on David Production's adaptation
Last week's Fire Force cast addition involved the mysterious Joker, and the latest character to be added appears to be connected to him in some way. While his motives are unclear, the Hajima Institute's genius scientist Victor will be played by Daisuke Sakaguchi (Shimura Shinpachi in Gintama).
Previous 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?
