After his confrontation in the Nether with his younger brother Shou, Shinra Kusakabe's resolve to become a hero that saves lives from the flame terror strengthens. Finding a way to turn the Infernals back into people, unraveling the mystery of the Evangelist and Adolla Burst, and saving his mother and Shou—these are the goals Shinra has in mind. However, he has come to realize that attaining these goals will not be easy, especially with the imminent danger the Evangelist poses.
The Evangelist's plan is clear: to gather the eight pillars—the individuals who possess Adolla Burst—and sacrifice them to recreate the Great Cataclysm from 250 years ago. Having been revealed by the First Pillar that the birth of a new pillar is approaching, Shinra is determined to protect his fellow pillars from the Evangelist. Thus, the fiery battle between the Special Fire Force and the Evangelist ignites. Together with the Special Fire Force, Shinra's fight continues as he uncovers the truth about the Great Cataclysm and the nature of Adolla Bursts, as well as the mysteries behind human combustion.
Review of Enen no Shouboutai: Ni no Shou
The story follows a youth named Shinra Kusakabe, whom we previously saw enlist in the Special Fire Force to fight *’Infernals’*, spontaneous human combustion victims who become living incarnations of fire and destruction. But not all flames are dangerous – some are a force for good. Kusakabe is living proof as he possesses the power to ignite his feet at will and uses this ability to launch him at high speeds. This earned him the nickname ‘Devil’s Footprints.’
In this second season, Fire Force continues its mission to quell the Infernal threat endangering Tokyo. While Shinra and his team face multiple formidable foes, they also have to unravel the mysteries behind human combustion. Adding to their challenges, a stealthy organization is manipulating events behind the scenes for their advantage, clouding the true nature of their growing Infernal problem.
