Fire Force (2019) (Enen no Shouboutai), even prior to it’s release, was an anime that I was excited for, primarily because I saw a lot of potential in it’s production values. Fast-forward to today, the second season of the anime is now airing with a strongly animated first season in the bag; I think that there is no better time to analyse the animation & techniques of various animators who participated in the first 24 episodes! In this episode I look at how the direction of Fire Force indirectly influences how it is animated, why the anime is much more than beautiful looking fight scenes and more. On the side, I discuss my experience with Mamoru Hosoda’s film, One Piece: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island (2005).

Animators mentioned: Kazuhiro Miwa, Hiroyuki Ookaji, Yuki Sato, Nozomo Abe, Taiki Konno, Yasuyuki Kai, Riki Matsuura, Yuki Matsuo, Yasuto Hirohara, Yutaka Nakamura, Arifumi Imai, Norio Matsumoto, Hiroyuki Imaishi
