Anime fans have tough thoughts about censorship. There are a couple of topics that concern them most, from adult-scenes to violence, gore, and many more issues.
This time Fire Force anime has been targeted by this issue and fans are not that sure about what the changes should be.
Fire Force anime returned for a short break to premiere the new episode. In respect for the Kyoto Animation studio’s catastrophe, Fire Force anime postponed the premiere of the new episode. The anime was postponed a week after Kyoto Animation, one of Japan’s debut generation studios was assaulted by an arsonist. 35 employees at the studio died in the fire and more than 30 employees are injured.
As confirmed by fans, Fire Force took censorship at minimum, and many felt the anime would need to trim some substance in the wake of Kyoto Animation‘s flame. All things considered, Fire Force addresses the harm flames unleash and the lives they snuff out. With Japan grieving Kyoto Animation‘s catastrophe, it would bode well for Fire Force to shorten scenes which could trigger those irritated with the torching, and fans are calling out on the choice.
You can see the reactions of fans on censorship decision of the Fire Force Anime:
Fans would be able to find the uncut scenes of the Fire Force anime when it releases its Blu-Ray version.
“Date 07/18/2019 on Thursday at around 10:30 a.m. JST, a devastating fire broke out at Kyoto Animation‘s 1st Studio building, killing 35 people and injuring 33 others. 30 fire engines responded to the fire, and firefighters were able to extinguish the fire completely within five hours after it started. Fans around the globe were devastated by the incident and started campaigns in order to show the support following the terrible tragedy that happened at the Kyoto Animation Studio.“
“Fire Force is a Japanese shōnenmanga arrangement composed and delineated by Atsushi Ōkubo. It is distributed by Kodansha and has been serialized in the Weekly Shōnen Magazine since September 23, 2015, with the parts gathered into seventeen tankōbon volumes starting at July 2019.
Kodansha Comics distributes the manga in English, and it portrays the story:
“Terror has paralyzed the clockwork metropolis of Tokyo! Possessed by demons, people have begun to burst into flame, leading to the establishment of a special firefighting team: the Fire Force, ready to roll on a moment’s notice to fight spontaneous combustion anywhere it might break out. The team is about to get a very unique addition: Shinra, a boy who possesses the unique power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving behind the famous “devil’s footprints” (and destroying his shoes in the process). Can the Fire Force discover the source of this strange phenomenon and put a stop to it? Or will the city burn to ashes first?“
