FIRE FORCE (DNA, WAKANIM)
After the resounding success of the film Promare released in May 2019, firefighters are once again in the spotlight with the adaptation of the manga Fire force. This signed story Ohkubo Atsushi (also author of the famous Soul Eater) takes us to the heart of a dystopian Tokyo where a strange phenomenon of human combustion is decimating the population. But a young man named Shinra Kusakabe, a new recruit to the city’s eighth fire brigade, intends to find the origin of such a disaster and lift the veil on the fire that orphaned him twelve years ago. .
The power of its action scenes, accentuated by the atypical colorization of these sets, plunges us into a post-apocalyptic atmosphere that is clearly worth the detour. The second season is currently being broadcast: the perfect opportunity to embark on this shônen if you haven’t already!
GOBLIN SLAYER (WAKANIM)
Goblin Slayer, directed by White Fox studio (Steins Gate, Re Zero), follows guild member, Goblin Slayer.

The Priestess, a novice adventurer, has barely embarked on her first outfit when she is already facing mortal danger. Goblin Burst comes to his rescue. He exterminates the enemies by all means, without making the lace. He surrounds himself with the Priestess, whom he likes to upset, with a member of the always affable guide and his childhood friend, the Cowgirl. Suddenly, an elf who has heard rumors about the character comes to them with a request.
