The manga Fire Force is the output of genius Atsushi Okubo and has become one of Shonen Magazine’s latest hits. Kondasha confirmed its record-breaking milestone of 16 million copies in circulation a couple of months ago. The figure reportedly doubled over the last year and a half, majorly due to Fire Force Season 2. The figures underline the great support Okubo has received over the past 6 years.
Atsushi Okhubo(Of Soul Eater and Soul Eater Not) commenced the serialization in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Jump on September 25, 2015. Four years of hard work took him four years before his baby received an anime adaptation curated by David Production. Season 2 ended in December 2020 and fans are now rooting for Fire Force Season 3 anime.
Currently, 29 tankonbon volumes of the manga are available in Japan. It will come out with its 30th volume (Fire Force Chapter 279) on 17th August. It has been a year since when Fire Force plot entered the final narrative arc. Based on the plan by the mangaka, very little can be anticipated in the showdown between Brigade 8 and the White Hoods. The manga is likely to come to an end in 2022.

Fire Force Chapter 278 is titled ‘Setting Off’ and is a part of the Great Cataclysm Arc. The chapter sees the doppelganger on a rampage, destroying the city. Obi and his team need to move to a different area to help the people affected by the destruction. But as they begin to move, the Assault stands in their way.

While many people are hoping Tamaki will get a chance to be the hero of the fight, the Assault’s Doppelganger’s power levels are grossly mismatched and would result in certain death.
