Fans of both Fire Force and Soul Eater have long speculated that the two manga series are linked, and these speculations were rife when the former was still running. Fire Force, which was first released in 2015, is the story of Shinra Kusakabe and a group of pyrokinetic firefighters who can fight fires and manipulate fire. On the other hand, Soul Eater made its debut in 2004 and is set in an academy where a Shinigami trains humans to become wielders and weapon meisters. Despite the fact that the two series bear many visual similarities, it was not until author Atsushi Ohkubo confirmed that Soul Eater is the sequel to Fire Force that fans could finally stop speculating. In this article, we will take a closer look at some of the key points that show the relationship between the two popular anime and manga series. Please note that this article contains spoilers from the Fire Force manga. There have been a few nods to the earlier series throughout the run of Fire Force that have led readers to speculate on a possible continuity between the two manga. One of the most obvious points of reference is the depiction of the moon, which looks exactly like something out of Soul Eater. Several other similarities bear a connection between the two animes. For example, Shinra’s childhood t-shirt bears the Soul Eater logo, Akitaru’s mask resembles Eibon’s visor mask, Rekka Hoshimiya’s star-like pupils bear a resemblance to those of House Hoshi members, and so on. While it is not uncommon for authors to reference past works in the manga universe, it is always interesting when it is done in a way that suggests that there may be a connection between two series. The Soul Eater manga, for instance, referenced Atsushi Ohkubo’s first serial work, B. Ichi, giving fans more reason to continue speculating about whether or not Fire Force was linked to Soul Eater. In the final chapter of Fire Force, the author confirmed that the series is a prequel to Soul Eater. Fans were thrilled with the ending of Fire Force, where they got to see Maka, Soul, Death the Kid, and Black Star on the final pages as a bonus. All of these characters are from Soul Eater, though they are younger here.

Excalibur, the sentient legendary sword, also made an appearance. While the two series are linked, they actually take place in different worlds. Shinra Kusakabe was an Old World human who was responsible for creating the New World via the Adolla Burst. Soul Eater was based in this New World. For a long time, it was thought that the New World began with the emergence of Death, but Fire Force proved it otherwise. In fact, the skeletal figure of Death was created when Shinra reinvented the world as a place where death is valued more than life.
He believed that Death should be the god of the new world because he was tangible, would help those in need, and be worthy of worship. Death’s first measure was to seize humans’ pyrokinetic powers, believing them to be far too powerful. Additionally, it is said that Shinra was the one who created Soul Resonance, a technique performed by a meister and a demon weapon in Soul Eater. In conclusion, Fire Force serving as the prequel to Soul Eater makes sense. It has one of the most satisfying manga endings, as everything was perfectly resolved within the specific timeline. Moreover, the series aptly established the introduction of the New World, increasing the possibilities for the sequel to develop new stories and characters. Fans of both series can now rest assured that they are indeed connected in a way that only Atsushi Ohkubo can create. With the confirmation of the link between the two series, fans can now look forward to the possibility of seeing characters from Fire Force making appearances in future Soul Eater adaptations, and vice versa.

Ohkubo has an incredible ability to create intricate and immersive fictional universes that leave fans yearning for more. He weaves together a story that ties in all the elements of his fictional world, giving readers a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction that comes with a well-executed narrative.

Overall, the confirmation that Fire Force is a prequel to Soul Eater is a thrilling revelation for fans of both series. With the promise of further connections and crossovers between the two worlds, fans can look forward to more exciting stories and adventures from Atsushi Ohkubo.
