I felt that this episode of Fire Force was really its best opportunity to give its characters some time to breathe and grow, but it ends up bundling that in favour of adding a few more convoluted plot contrivances. Fire Force really is becoming a prime example of form over function in a series, with it’s character being the main casualty of this approach.
This week sees the conclusion of this mini arc featuring Tamayo and Yushiro; who have shown us that Nezuko isn’t the only demon out there that isn’t a monstrous engine of murder, well not when it comes to humans anyway.
Welp, seems Goku’s newfound mastery of Ultra Instinct wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.
With Goku on the field, decked out in the Grand Priest’s gear and apparently able to switch his most powerful form on at a whim, the battle was all but over, right?
