ちんか (Chinka) - A new anime!!!

First of all, Congrats to Danny Choo for his first anime project~!!

Danny Choo had built up a team of talented people to work with in this new anime studio production called Mirai Fusion (sounds cool....)
He's working with a unit called Hibuse on the production of their original story called "Chinka".
The kanji is 鎮火 which means to "put out fire".
So you can figure out the story include fire"lady" and fire brigade.....

(directly from Danny's website)
Since a few years ago, there have been many cases of arson.
In the rural town of Kiyotaki, situated in a beautiful mountain valley, the town folks are talking about the legendary arsonist, Akaneko [赤猫].
The police have completely given up on Akaneko, who has slipped through their fingers every time.
The town's only hope is its one and only firefighting team - the Mizuneko [水猫] Fire Brigade. But because of their destructive fire fighting ways, they too are feared by the town folk. Almost every night, Akaneko and the Mizuneko Fire Brigade fight fiercely, taking down many of the town's buildings in the process. The Mizuneko Fire Brigade have depleted most of the town's financial resources so the town ends up on the verge of bankruptcy. The town was in a critical state when Chinka, a girl with a superhuman ability to smell out fires appears. With her powers, the Mizuneko Fire Brigade close in on the true identity of Akaneko...
Kiyotaki Town
The town is densely packed with small wooden buildings so fires spread rapidly. The Mizuneko Fire Brigade uphold the motto "destructive fire fighting" but because of this, many parts of town lay in ruins.

Mizuneko Fire Brigade
Although the Mizuneko Fire Brigade is a private organization, as the town of Kiyotaki doesn't have a fire department, Mizuneko Fire Brigade are in charge of the day-to-day firefighting.

椿香(Chinka) is the main character aged 14 - A naive clumsy new girl who just joined the Mizuneko fire brigade. She has the ability to sniff out fires from far distances.

翔華(Shouka) aged 16. She is the leader of the Mizuneko fire brigade. A tough boyish character. Favourite vehicle is her two-wheeled Mist Dragon. Her father is the mayor of the town.
めぐみ(Megumi) aged 17 - the 美少女 (bishoujo) with a tennen personality (おっとり天然系). Tennen personality for example like Miyuki (Lucky Star) and Mugi (K-On).
Megumi is a descendant of the legendary fireman of the Edo period Shinmon Tatsugoro (新門辰五朗). She excels at extinguishing fires and is the only one who can control the fierce Mikoto pumps.

The legendary fireman of the Edo period Shinmon Tatsugoro (新門辰五郎) and the great grandfather of Megumi. When Megumi is in a spot of bother, he would appear behind Megumi and she would be possessed by his spirit and help her.
The quiet mechanic ミコト(Mikoto), aged 15. She looks after the maintenance of the fire engines and does a load of customization to them - all the fighting equipment on the engines have been turned into weapon which deliver incredible water pressure.

Hibuse-san is the station cat. It was picked up by Shouka at the scene of a fire one day and living at the fire station garage ever since.

Last but not least,
みらい(Mirai) the mascot of Danny's.....
She plays the part of a cat-loving-maid waitress who works at the cafeteria near the Mizuneko headquarters. The cafeteria is where the Mizuneko girls go for relax after a hard day work but they tend to run amok and cause trouble for Mirai-chan.....

This is what released in press:
