Fire Force (En’en no Shouboutai), based on a manga by Atsushi Okubo, is back with more character introductions! Kenichi Suzumura will join the cast as Takehisa Hinawa.
Takehisa Hinawa is the commander of Company 8 and a very cool soldier with dry humor. He is feared because of his harsh words to newcomers and never misses a beat for a tsukkomi. Check out what Suzumura says about his character at the end of this article! You can also check out the character trailer, in which we can hear Hinawa talk.
Fire Force is a fantasy story about a Special Fire Force Company that faces a dark battle against something they call spontaneous human combustion, which has suddenly appeared in the world. It is currently being serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine and has released 15 paperback volumes so far.
Comment from Kenichi Suzumura
Your impression of your character?
Cool and serious but in reality… He’s a really passionate guy. He might seem very inflexible but he is the one who makes the best arguments in Company 8. It’s when he isn’t there that company gets into serious trouble. [laugh] I want to portray him as a character who supports his team members from behind.
Message to the fans
The world of Okubo’s manga will be turned into an anime! It will make sure to stick to being a typical work of the genre yet sometimes defy the pre-set standards. Please look forward to it!
