The Fire Hunter Season 2: Everything We Know About the Upcoming Release!

the fire hunter season 2 release date

Even though The Fire Hunter may not be as popular as Vinland Saga Season 2 or Tomo-chan Is a Girl!, it has done well enough to be renewed for a second season.

After the end of Season 1, the show’s Twitter account confirmed that Season 2 of The Fire Hunter is real and will start soon.

This should come as a pleasant surprise to people who watch the show, especially since it hasn’t gotten much attention so far, which meant that a Season 2 renewal wasn’t likely.

What Happens in The Anime The Fire Hunter?


The series takes place after the terrible Last War, which caused a lot of chaos for people. The world is made up of a big forest where fire creatures and other dead animals live.

Because of this, people have been forced to live in safe, isolated communities. During the Last War, people used a weapon that makes them spontaneously catch fire when they come in contact with even small fire sources.

Fire catchers are sent into the Great Forest to collect the flailings that live inside them. This is done so that people will have a safe way to get energy. At the beginning of the show, flailings attack a young girl named Toko in the Great Forest, but a flame catches saves her.
