The leaks of chapter 255 of the manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ohkubo, Enen no Shouboutai (Fire Force), have left most of the fans with many questions, as it turns out that a large part of the chapter is starred by different photographs of a woman middle-aged. Reactions vary, although some joke with the author's mental health.
“This week's episode of Fire Force is pretty dense. More than half of the chapter features digitized photographs of a middle-aged woman. Has Atsushi Ohkubo hit rock bottom yet? I don't think there is anyone who understands his intentions among us »
«When I thought about taking a bath and going to sleep, I remembered the most recent chapter of the manga“ Fire Force ”, currently in serialization. I couldn't sleep because of those strange panels posted in this week's chapter. It seems that the story has lost all meaning and I do not understand the context at all. Is this the work of the author or the publisher? "
On the other hand, Ohkubo has published the manga in Kodansha publisher's Weekly Shonen Magazine since September 2015. The publisher published the 25th compiled volume on September 17, followed by the 26th on November 17.
The play inspired a 24-episode anime adaptation produced by David Production Studios, released in July 2019. A second 24-episode season aired during the Summer-2020 season, specifically on July 3 in Japan.
