Synopsis of Fire Force
Terror has paralyzed the inhabitants of Tokyo after a phenomenon known as "spontaneous combustion" began to turn its inhabitants into a kind of fiery demons called infernal. Despite this, some people are able to handle the flames and maintain their human form, thus giving them special abilities that divide them into first, second, and third generation pyrokinetics.
