How Many Volumes of Fire Force Are There? What’s the Correct Order to Read Fire Force Manga? Everything You Need to Know Before the Anime Returns in 2023

Oh, you felt the heat too, huh? No, it’s not a blazing sun or your latest crush—it’s the enthralling world of Fire Force, a manga series that ignited souls even before its anime counterpart exploded onto the scene. Crafted by Atsushi Ohkubo, the genius behind Soul Eater, Fire Force is a blazing spectacle that’s hard to extinguish from your mind once it catches fire.

From Manga Panels to Animated Flames

Fire Force

Back in 2019, Fire Force swirled into an anime inferno, quickly accumulating a loyal fanbase. With two seasons out and a third one brewing, it’s safe to say this fire is far from being put out. But here’s where it gets heated: the anime only skimmed through around 170 chapters of the manga, while the original work boasts over 300 chapters!

Why Manga is the Unexplored Frontier

For many, the anime is just the tip of the iceberg—a seductive teaser that leads them into the labyrinthine world of manga. So, for those about to take the manga plunge, we salute you! The first step? Knowing how many volumes you’ll have to devour, of course.

How Many Volumes of Fire Force Exist?

If you’re wondering how many Fire Force volumes there are to get your hands on, let’s cut to the chase. The manga, also known by its Japanese name Enen no Shouboutai, has 34 tankōbon volumes, compiled from a grand total of 304 manga chapters. And guess what? You can binge-read to your heart’s content as the series has concluded.

What Sets Fire Force Apart?

Although both Soul Eater and Fire Force are from the same mangaka, don’t expect the same vibe. If Soul Eater was a comedy sketch doused in action, Fire Force is a full-blown action drama sprinkled with bits of comedy and unfurling mysteries.

A Glimpse into the World of Fire Force

Set 50 years after ‘The Great Cataclysm’, the manga unfurls in the Tokyo Empire. Our hero, Shinra Kusakabe, dreams of becoming a part of the Special Fire Force, a brigade aiming to douse the mysterious phenomenon of Spontaneous Human Combustion. Drama, action, and a bit of camaraderie—this manga has it all.
