Rookie firefighter Daigo Asahina finds out that he has a lot to learn before he can call himself a real firefighter over the course of this series.


Created by Japanese artist and writer Masahito Soda. This is a shonen manga that originally ran in the Weekly Shonen Sunday from 1995 to 1999 originally as "Megumi no Daigo". It produced 20 volumes and also won the 1997 Shogakukan Manga Award. During that same year, Megumi no Daigo was used as promotional material for the Tokyo Fire Department.

In Japanese, Megumi no Daigo translates literally into "Daigo of Company M" but Megumi can also be translated into "benevolent" or "a kindness" which can alter the translation into "Benevolent Daigo" as well.


Flame, smoke, and fear ... when a fire blazes out of control, everyone instinctively seeks to run away but a daring few charge into the inferno heedless of their own safety. These brave souls are firefighters and ever since he was a young boy who was trapped in a fire and was saved by a courageous firefighter, Daigo Asahina has always aspired to become one.

Newly graduated from firefighting school, Daigo is horrified to learn that he has been assigned to Medaka-Ga-Hama, Fire Company M which is actually renowned for being one of the slowest and least active fire stations in the city. How can he be a brave firefighter when there are no fires to fight?

But a few calls quickly humbles the brash rookie and he realizes that he has a lot to learn before he can call himself a true firefighter. His fellow firefighters meanwhile aren't sure whether Daigo is a idiot savant or just a plain reckless idiot as his remarkable talents and instincts come into play whenever disaster strikes. He will do whatever it takes, break whatever rule that he has to in order to save lives.

His methods are unconventional, his actions seemingly suicidal, and his stunts are just plain crazy; but luckily, no one has ever died thanks to him. But if he is just lucky ... how long can that luck last?
