The anime world is an incredibly vast place, and it is filled with hundreds of different stories that cover virtually every genre in existence. Many of these series became popular because they tell interesting, overarching stories, but those stories would have never succeeded if the characters were not compelling and relatable.
Most anime characters possess some kind of special power or ability, and one of the most common powers is the ability to create, control, and manipulate fire. Fire is one of the strongest and most destructive forces on Earth, which is why it is commonly wielded by very powerful anime characters. Blue fire is a real thing, and in anime, it always burns hotter than ordinary fire. It is true that quite a few anime characters can manipulate fire, but only a small handful can use the blue variant.
