It has been years since Fire Force made its debut, and creator Atsushi Ohkubo has kept its heat going for some time. The anime's arrival only accelerated the flame, but like all things, the anime will need to fizzle out at some point. Not long ago, it was confirmed Fire Force would end before much longer, and its creator just doubled down on the promise by finishing its final chapter.
The update went live today courtesy of Atsushi Ohkubo himself. The artist hit up Twitter with a special note, and he informed fans the final chapter of Fire Force has been submitted to the powers at be.
ちょうど今、最終話の入稿が終わりました。まだいろいろ仕事は残ってるけどね— 大久保篤/Atsushi Ohkubo (@Atsushi_Ohkubo) January 25, 2022
"The final chapter has been submitted," Ohkubo wrote. "Though I have a lot of work still to do."
At this point, fans aren't sure when Fire Force will debut this final chapter or how many are leading ahead of it. Ohkubo does have a backlog of content to go through, so Fire Force may not end this February or even this spring. It could take a bit of time, but fans should brace themselves for Fire Force to end in 2022.
