Kodansha USA has licensed manga for English language distribution in North America.
From July to December 2019, David Production’s anime television series adaptation aired on MBS’s Super Animeism block. From July to December 2020, a second season will be broadcast. The show’s third season has been confirmed. Funimation has obtained the rights to the anime television series.
The Fire Force manga had more than 20 million copies in circulation as of May 2022.
The plot of Fire Force Season 3
After an intense Season 2, Fire Force has definitely ignited so much anticipation for what is going to happen next in the hearts of every viewer, and everyone is swarming with questions about the Plot of Fire Force Season 3.
We don’t have any concrete plot details for Fire Force Season 3 yet. However, we know that the anime has always followed the manga of Fire Force. According to this, Season 3 will also follow the plot of the Fire Force Manga. If that happens, we can probably guess what Shinra will face in season 3.
If you look closely at the anime and manga schedules, you’ll notice that Season 1 of Fire Force Anime covered volumes 1–11 of the Fire Force Manga.
Following that, Season 2 of Fire Force Anime followed the storyline from volume 11 to volume 20. As Okubo suggests that the manga is nearing the end of its storyline, Fire Force Season 3 will most likely follow the storyline of Fire Force Manga from Volume 20 to its potential conclusion, which has yet to be determined. That is if Fire Force does not descend into filler territories like Naruto and Bleach.
Because the ending of Season 2 of Fire Force hinted at a larger future battle between Evangelists and Company 8, we’re confident that this will be explored further in the upcoming Fire Force Season 3. Shinra pushed his limits to reach a new limit called “The Press Of Death” in order to become stronger in order to deal with the Company’s increasingly dangerous enmities.
That, combined with the fact that the heroes of Fire Force took a significant blow from the enemies, leads us to believe that Fire Force Season 3 will focus on how they recover from the repeated attacks and build their strength in preparation for the massive war that the show implies.
The Cast of Fire Force Season 3
There has been no official announcement of who will star in “Fire Force” season 3. If we believe in the consistency behind the scenes of the first two seasons of Fire Force, we will most likely see the original cast members of the show return for Fire Force Season 3.
However, because it is a brand new season with many possibilities and hints of newer things, we can expect some new cast members to appear in Fire Force Season 3.
New characters and cast members included Ogun Montgomery, voiced by Makoto Furukawa (Japanese) and Zeno Robinson (English), and Scop, voiced by Kentaro Ito (Japanese) and Tyler Walker (English) (English). Shinra should still be voiced by Gakuto Kajiwara (Japanese) and Derick Snow (English) (Via Anime News Network).
The new Fire Force Season 3 will be animated by David Production, the same studio that animated the first two seasons. In terms of directors, Tatsuma Minamikawa previously replaced Yuki Yase as director of Season 2 of Fire Force. As of now, if nothing changes, Minamikawa will direct Fire Force Season 3 as well.
Kazuhiro Miwa has served as Fire Force’s chief animator for all two seasons of Season 3. As a result, we can expect Kazuhiro Miwa to return as the chief animator for Fire Force Season 3 and Kenichiro Suehiro to compose the music.
Release Date of Season 3
The season will begin on May 16, 2022, according to Fire Force’s official Twitter account. Unfortunately, no release date has been announced for the show as of yet.
However, previous seasons were part of a summer lineup, so a summer release for season 3 is also possible. Crunchyroll and Funimation may announce the release date soon.
Where to Watch Fire Force Season 3?
Crunchyroll was the original licensee of the series. However, Aniplus Asia streamed the English dub series in Southeast Asian countries. Hulu, Toonami, and Funimation later acquired its license.
Since Sony acquired Funimation, the third season of Fire Force will be available to stream on Crunchyroll, Toonami, and Hulu.
The English dub may air on Funimation, but no details have been released other than the fact that the season is in production.
