21+ Anime Like Fire Force (Recommendations)

anime like fireforce

Fire Force is one of a kind. When I watch an anime, I always need that X-factor that keeps me hooked on a show. While to some the anime is a slow burn, to me that is the charm of the show.

Because, we all know, not everything fast ends up well. For example, The Promised Neverland Season 2, a disaster on its own. Yare, Yare!

Be it the high-octane action sequences, Ookubo’s notorious ecchi scenes, spine-chilling mysteries, or the world-building, Fire Force comes second to none with the uniqueness it brings to the table.

And if you are looking for more of such anime, I have made a list of anime that are similar to Fire Force. So, without any further ado, let’s dive right into the list of top 22 anime like Fire Force.

The story of Jujutsu Kaisen is about the human curses and negativity that give birth to the demons who feed off them. And to stop them sorcerers are trained at specialized schools.

Enough about the plot, just watch Jujutsu Kaisen and simp for Gojo Satoru and say to me “daijoubu boku wa saikyou dakara”.
