The previously announced Firefighter Daigo of Fire Company M: Kyukoku no Orange anime has released its first teaser visual ahead of its planned premiere this fall. Brain’s Base is animating the series under the direction of Masahiko Murata.
The teaser visual depicts the three main characters of the series namely Daigo Toake (CV: Junya Enoki), Shun Onoda (CV: Taku Yashiro), and Yuki Nakamura (CV: Ayane Sakura). Shinzo Fujito is doing the series composition, while Hitomi Tsuruta and Koji Yabuno are responsible for the character designs.
Firefighter! Daigo of Fire Company M: Kyukoku no Orange anime is based on the Megumi no Daigo: Kyukoku no Orange manga by Masahito Soda, with assistance from Kuro Tomiyama. It has been serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Magazine since October 2020. The manga is preceded by the 1995 manga Megumi no Daigo by the same author. It was published under Shogakukan Weekly Shonen Sunday.
This was followed by a 1999 anime film directed by Susumu Nishizawa and animated by Sunrise. In 2004, a television drama series also aired on Fuji TV and had 11 episodes.
Viz Media has licensed the prequel Firefighter Daigo of Fire Company M manga in English, describing its first volume as:
Fire, smoke, adrenaline, and fear–when everyone is running to escape from a fire, a few courageous people are running to jump right into the thick of it. Firefighters put their own lives on the line to protect others and Daigo Asahina has always dreamed of becoming one. He’s fresh out of the training academy and has been newly assigned to Medaka-Ga-Hama fire station. Cocky and overconfident, Daigo responds to a few calls and is quickly humbled and put in his place–he’s still got a lot to learn before he can call himself a true firefighter.
