Tatsuki Fujimoto, the author of Chainsaw Man, is known to Italian readers for another stuff: Fire Punch published by Edizioni Star Comics. Even Fire Punch lasted relatively shortly by shonen standards or only 8 volumes all already published in Italy.

And whoever is cold is tremendously attracted to fire… Does the "blessing" descended on Agni represent a hope or rather a curse? Agni and Luna are two orphan brothers, both endowed with the power of regeneration. They try by all means to help the people of their village to survive, until they are attacked by Doma, a man with the "blessing" of the flames, who condemns them to a cruel fate…
