On February 22, the final chapter of the Fire Force manga was published in the Weekly Shonen Magazine, and the manga officially ended after over 6 years of serialization. Written and drawn by Atsushi Ohkubo, Fire Force began on September 23, 2015. It ran for a total of 304 chapters, and there are 32 compilation volumes as of December 2021 (there will be 2 more to cover the final chapters). For the final week, it was also on the cover of the magazine and got the lead color page:
The official Twitter also shared the lead color page:
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?
The series got an anime adaptation in 2019, which had 24 episodes. David Production animated it, and they announced a 2nd season immediately in December 2019. The sequel aired in 2020, and it also ran for 24 episodes.
Fire Force entered its final arc in 2021, just like several others big manga series which are close their ending. Some of them are Tokyo Revengers which is also in its final arc, Jujutsu Kaisen which is planned to end soon, My Hero Academia in its final act, and One Piece in its final stage.
To go with the fact that the Fire Force manga ended, the official Twitter account has also teased several special events to commemorate it.
