A sequel to the 1995-1999 Megumi no Daigo manga, Megumi no Daigo Kyuukoko no Orange is serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Shōnen Magazine magazine, and six collected volumes have also been released in Japan. VIZ Media publishes an English language version of the original Megumi no Daigo manga under the title Firefighter!: Daigo of Fire Company M, and describes the story as follows:


Fire, smoke, adrenaline, and fear–when everyone is running to escape from a fire, a few courageous people are running to jump right into the thick of it. Firefighters put their own lives on the line to protect others and Daigo Asahina has always dreamed of becoming one. He’s fresh out of the training academy and has been newly assigned to Medaka-Ga-Hama fire station. Cocky and overconfident, Daigo responds to a few calls and is quickly humbled and put in his place–he’s still got a lot to learn before he can call himself a true firefighter.
