I am having a number of mixed feelings when it comes to this show. Feelings that are mostly centred on a single thing I can’t help but get hung up on when watching a show like this. I run the risk of having a pretty unpopular opinion here, but I’m just going to come out and say it: I just don’t like fan service in anime.
Things are staring to feel a lot more shoneny this episode. While this is the beginning of the 8th’s investigation in the 1st division, it’s under the guise of a some kind of training arc. I’m starting to get to the point where I’m not worrying about the little things in Fire Force and just going along for the ride.
While I have really enjoyed the look and style of this show right from shot #1, I kind of feel like Shinra’s story as the protagonist has become buried into the mounds of everything else going on in this world of fantasy inspired fire fighters and flaming demons.
