Fire Force Season 2: Enen no Shouboutai Season 2
Fire Force is stunning to check at. The cartoon is the highlight of the show, I mean seriously, if you’re a battle scene junkie like me you’ll love every incident of the because goddamn can it be fine to check out.
The artwork also has that timeless Atsushi Okubo”Soul Eater” design I adored a lot in middle school, I love the degree of character style in this show. My favorite part is merely the way the Fire Force coats blue rings seem against shadowy backdrops, and also the way that functions to make a very pretty spectacle match for a wallpaper.
Talking of the Soul Eater design, the design is the bomb, but it is not quite as debilitating and cartoony as Soul Eater was, but it’s this Solar/SteamPunk aesthetic I dig about all of the buildings.
The characters are fantastic, and since the narrative has gone on we have gradually gotten to know them a little more. I believe some people are far too impatient with personality development and do not recognize that sometimes things only happen at a slow pace, and I am fine with this. I like that we are slowly beginning to become accustomed to the 8th Precinct, and that I am also fond of the main character. The MC would like to be a fanatic and I believe he is doing this well. Shinra type of reminds me of a child who says they wish to be a police officer when they develop so that they can protect individuals, but in his case, he ends up doing exactly that.
His motives appear commendable, and it provides the ideal amount of”shounen protag” into his personality that it does not overwhelm his whole character. He appears nervous for a lot of the series, which is quite relatable, and that I feel the tiny grin tick of his only adds to that concerning his interactions with other characters.
It is an enjoyable view, the soundtrack is topnotch, the character design is excellent, the forces that every character has is creative and fun, and the narrative itself actually gets going in the next installment and only draws you into the long run, but gradually. If you’d like fast-paced action with gradual spans of funny and nice personality interactions in between, then devote Fire Force a watch.
I, however, would not see Fire Force if you are the sort of person who only needs something profound and deep off the bat. There is plenty of shounen available right now that is just fighting Pacing, but Fire Force is taking the center-ground and providing us all one at a time rather than all at one time.
My only criticism is the fact that it is a shounen name that does not challenge a few of those shounen tropes which are widespread, but I can not say if it will always be this way since we’re just a couple episodes because I write this.
