The collision of the passionate spirits of Galo, the new recruit of the Burning Rescue team, a highly mobile life-saving fire brigade who burns with the soul of a firefighter, and Lio, leader of the fire-manipulating Mad Burnish, is depicted with high tension and speedy development. Drawings and 3DCG is naturally mixed together and vividly colored battle scenes give added momentum to the unique world view.
