It has been announced that Japanese rock band Mrs. GREEN APPLE will perform the opening theme song Inferno for the upcoming anime series Fire Force which is set to premiere on July 5.
Fire Force is a dark fantasy and battle manga series written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo. The story is set in Tokyo where a phenomenon known as spontaneous human combustion causes citizens to turn into Infernals. The Fire Force are tasked with extinguishing these deadly cases.
The anime series is being adapted by David Production with Yuki Yase as director and Yamato Haishima as writer.
The opening theme song is set to debut in an upcoming new promotional video which is set to be released on June 18 on the official website.
Mrs. GREEN APPLE’s vocalist and guitarist Motoki Omori commented the following with regards to the band’s tie-up with the series: “Congratulations on the anime adaptation of Fire Force. It might have been around 3 years ago when I visited the bookstore and was captivated by the mysterious power of this manga. I purchased the first volume. From then on I became a huge fan. Some time passed, and the Fire Force team got in touch with us to get us on board. We were extremely honoured and honestly just moved. We wrote Inferno to capture that same initial mysterious power I felt from the series in music form. I believe the song sounds exhilarating! In any case, now there’s no helping looking forward to the anime. Mrs. GREEN APPLE would also be overjoyed if you check out the opening theme Inferno too.”
Release Date: July 5, 2019
