Fire Brigade of Flames (En En no Shōbōtai) is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Okubo. The manga is published by Kodansha, beginning serialization in its Weekly Shonen Magazine on September 23, 2015.

Plot

The series was described in Weekly Shōnen Magazine Issue 34 as follows:

"An unexplainable phenomenon of people bursting into flames assails humanity. Put your life on the line to extinguish the flames! A great conflagration that will shake up the manga world! A sci-fi firefighting battle!"[1]

    Shinra Kusakabe is the series' main protagonist, a Third Generation Fire Officer at the 8th Special Fire Brigade of Tokyo.[2]
  • Takehisa Hinawa is a Second Generation Company Commander at the 8th Special Fire Brigade.[2]
  • Maki Oze is a Second Generation Fire Officer at the 8th Special Fire Brigade of Tokyo.[2] She is capable of forming fireballs with faces that she names "Pusupusu."[3]
  • Iris is a Sister and member of the 8th Special Fire Brigade of Tokyo.[2]
  • Akitaru Ōbi is the Battalion Commander of the 8th Special Fire Brigade and a former Firefighter.[2]
  • Arthur Boyle is a Third Generation Fire Officer who joins the 8th Special Fire Brigade shortly after Shinra. Previously Shinra's rival during their academy training, Arthur is the self-described "Knight King" who conjures his plasma fire to emanate from his bladeless scabbard Excalibur.[3]

Trivia

  • Fire Brigade of Flames features details that closely resemble or allude to elements from Atsushi Okubo's Soul Eater.
    • Shinra's Special Fire Brigade is the 8th, which is Death the Kid's preferred number for its symmetry.[2][4]
    • The Soul Eater logo appears frequently. The logo appears on Shinra's t-shirt when he was a child[5]. As well, the logo's grin (as also appears on Soul Evans's soul) appears on one of Maki's Pusupusu.[2][3]
    • Arthur's sword is named Excalibur, and his first name alludes to Arthur Pendragon.[3]
    • Fire Brigade of Flames features a Fire Demon, a character with simplistic eyes, no obvious face, and who shouts "PIGGY"--all similar to Ragnarok's appearance.[6]
  • Maka Albarn and Soul Eater provide commentary about Fire Brigade of Flames in a special section of Volume 1 of that manga.
