It has been serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine since September 2015, and collected into 25 tankōbon volumes as of September 2020.


An anime television series adaptation by David Production aired from July to December 2019 on the MBS's Super Animeism block. A second season premiered in July 2020.


In North America, the manga has been licensed for an English language release by Kodansha USA, and the anime television series has been licensed by Funimation.

The Great Disaster (大災害, Daisaigai) is an event that happened two hundred and fifty years before Year 198, with the world mostly consumed in flame, many nations destroyed, and most of the planet rendered uninhabitable. The survivors took refuge in the Tokyo Empire, which remained mostly stable during the period despite losing some of its landmass. The Tokyo Emperor Raffles I establishes the faith of the Holy Sol Temple as it and Haijima Industries developed the perpetual thermal energy plant Amaterasu to power the country.

In Year 198 of Tokyo's Solar Era, special fire brigades called the Fire Force fight increasing incidents of spontaneous human combustion where human beings are turned into living infernos called "Infernals" (焰ビト, Homura Bito).

While the Infernals are first generation cases of spontaneous human combustion, with more powerful horned variations known as Demons, later generations possess pyrokinesis while retaining human form. The Fire Force was formed by combining people with these powers from the Holy Sol Temple, The Tokyo Armed Forces, and the Fire Defense Agency, and is composed of eight independent companies.
