Fire in His Fingertips is a Japanese manga series by Tanishi Kawano. An anime adaptation by ComicFesta was aired from July to September 2019 under the title Fire in His Fingertips: My Childhood Friend is a Firefighter, in two versions. The anime is produced by Studio Hōkiboshi, with Toshihiro Watase as director, Tombo as scriptwriter, and Katsuyuki Sato as the animation director. Like ComicFesta’s other series, two versions of the anime were produced with different cast members: a standard version for television broadcast, and a complete version including sexual content for streaming on ComicFesta Anime’s website. The theme song is “Blazing Luv!!” by Sakuragaoka Fire Brigade, which is composed of the voice actors for Souma, Yuki, and Jun. The same song is performed in the complete version by Tri Fighter, consisting of the complete version’s voice cast.
This is eight episodes long at six minute each. So the video imbedded at the end of this post is all eight episodes together.
A second season has been announced and aired from July 5 to August 23, 2021. The cast and staff will return to reprise their roles. On December 1, 2021, it was announced that both seasons of the anime will receive an English dub produced by Ascendent Animation.
Ryo Fujihashi, a 24-year-old office worker, is childhood friends with Souma Mizuno, a firefighter. She plans on setting him up with a co-worker from her office, but she assumes the reason why their dates fail is because of his womanizing ways. When Souma saves her when her apartment catches on fire, he offers her a place to stay. Ryo later learns that he has been in love with her for a long time.
I’m gonna say it, I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this one and might just get the manga for myself.
