Chaos at Company 8 With The Latest ‘Fire Force’ Anime Simuldub Clip

© Atsushi Ohkubo / Kodansha

The anime adaptation of the Fire Force manga is underway and Funimation is producing a same-day simuldub for the property. With it having several episodes under its belt so far, they’ve now brought out a new dub clip where the reality is that everyone wants ramen – and asking can send the office into chaos! Availability for the show is set for U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

The wording on their announcement is fairly precise so we’re expecting that Crunchyroll has the simulcast side of the series and that this is a project that the two had invested in together before their partnership broke up last fall.

Yuki Yase is set to direct based on the scripts overseen by Yamato Haishima while Hideyuki Morioka is handling the character designs. David Production is handling the animation for it.

On the casting side, Gakuto Kajiwara is on board as the lead with Gakuto Kajiwara as Shinra Kusakabe, Yūsuke Kobayashi as Arthur Boyle, M.A.O as Iris, Saeko Kamijō as Maki Oze, Kenichi Suzumura as Takehisa Hinawa, Kazuya Nakai as Akitaru Ōbi, Daisuke Sakaguchi as Victor Licht, Aoi Yūki as Kotatsu Tamaki, Kazuyuki Okitsu as Karim Fulham, Katsuyuki Konishi as Takeru Noto, Lynn as Princess Hibana, Kengo Kawanishi as Toru Kishiri, Tomoaki Maeno as Konro Sagamiya, and Kenjiro Tsuda as Joker.

Created by Atsuko Ohkubo, the series began in 2015 in Weekly Shonen Magazine and has fifteen volumes out so far. Ohkubo gained a lot of fame for his work on the Soul Eater franchise. Kodansha Comics releases the manga in North America.

Plot Concept: Terror has paralyzed the clockwork metropolis of Tokyo! Possessed by demons, people have begun to burst into flame, leading to the establishment of a special firefighting team: the Fire Force, ready to roll on a moment’s notice to fight spontaneous combustion anywhere it might break out. The team is about to get a very unique addition: Shinra, a boy who possesses the unique power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving behind the famous “devil’s footprints” (and destroying his shoes in the process). Can the Fire Force discover the source of this strange phenomenon and put a stop to it? Or will the city burn to ashes first?
