With the anime series last airing in December 2020, Fire Force Manga is also soon to bid its fans a farewell. The mangaka had already hinted upon a close end to his text. So, the news was not so much of a surprise to his fans. As much as the fans hate to hear it, Redditors have claimed to be pumped up for the same. However, no update on the anime has surfaced. So, when is the manga ending? What is in the future for the anime series? Here are all the details.
Fire Force is a Japanese manga series that is a creation of Atsushi Okubo. As of the month of June 2021, the text has sold over 16 million copies. So, undeniably the series is very popular. Till now, there have been two anime series under the franchise, and fans are eagerly waiting for the next release. Irrespective of the huge success of the first two seasons, makers are yet to make an announcement for a renewal.
Fire Force Manga: Author Claims To End The Manga After Two Volumes
In a recent Dark Souls Livestream, creator Atushi Okubo has confirmed to put an end to the fan-favorite series. According to the writer, he has just a few chapters to complete the series. So, as the author quotes it, the manga will be done after two more chapters. Thus, an end after the two volumes is likely to cease the text. This would make manga done by 34th volume.
The manga entered its final arc in 2021, and fans were already notified about this detail. Another heartbreaking detail is Atushi Okubo stating that Fire Force is likely to be his last manga series. With this in mind, Fire Force manga might end before this year’s Spring. Since the author might be done with the manga after two chapters, however, the manga might have more chapters in stock for publishing. All in all, it is certain that, however a short ride, Fire Force manga was immensely loved.
What Is In Future For The Anime Series?
With the second season ending on December 12, 2020, it has been more than a year since the last update. And till now, no news has been out about a possibility of the third season. However, fans can hope that Funimation will announce a renewal very soon. The delay in release might be because of the pandemic situation. Many anime series had suffered a late release because of the current guidelines. However, considering the popularity of the anime, there is very little to no chance of it being discontinued.
Since there are a lot of chapters yet to appear in the anime series, it is sure that the production house does not lack the material. However, that is only for one more season, which results in season 3 marking the end of the anime show. The plot is likely to take over where season 2 left it. Hence, it will adapt the 20th volume to the very end of the series.
Fire Force Season 3: Release Date
Unfortunately, the makers are yet to green-lit the next season. So, no official release date has made the news. However, now that David Productions is finally done with JBA Stone Ocean, an official announcement is likely to hit very soon. Hence, if the fans see a confirmation in the later months, an early 2023 or mid-2023 release is possible. The previous seasons are available on Netflix and Crunchyroll for streaming. Hence, for more updates, keep coming back to The Anime Daily.
