Firefighter Daigo: Rescuer in Orange – Season 1 Episode 6 Recap & Review

Toake Daigo

Firefighter Daigo: Rescuer in Orange Episode 6 begins with a flashback of Daigo dislocating his arm and rescuing the restaurant owner.

The nurse at the hospital scolds Daigo for voluntarily dislocating his arm. We see a flashback from when Toake is only 10 years old and arrives at his aunt’s house. She shows him his room with all of his belongings and suggests he also get his name changed, giving him a new start. Later when she comes back to check on him he tells her he would like to go with Toake Daigo.

On shift, Shun takes a look at Daigo’s locker and finds numbers written on the inside. They proceed with Hoist Rescue practice, but Shun is fixated on how disciplined Daigo is. He feels like he doesn’t know Daigo despite knowing him throughout training and working together too.

The rescue team relish lunch at the Takahashi’s restaurant. Yaeko is extremely grateful to them for saving her husband. Hikaru also serves them dishes, giving special attention to Shun.

His colleagues tell them about how he bravely held up the wall for everyone. They then question him about why he decided to be a firefighter. Embarrassed to mention the real reason he tells them another story about how the firefighters had come over prepared to his house for a small fire.

The scene cuts to the doctor appreciating the rescue team’s work for paying minute attention while cutting the rebar which saved Isamu’s median nerve from getting severed.

A few days later, the rescue team attends to another call and passes by the restaurant. Isamu recalls the things Daigo said to keep his spirit high while cutting the rebar and his eyes tear up with gratitude for the second chance he has at life at the end of Firefighter Daigo: Rescuer in Orange Episode 6.

The Episode Review

Firefighter Daigo: Rescuer in Orange Episode 6 gives us a glimpse into Daigo’s tragic past; however, it remains very vague. It seems like Daigo has lost someone in the past to a fire, which gives his career choice and determination more weight.

This episode steps outside the rescue mission to give us a glimpse of the impact the rescuers have on the lives of the people they save. It does this by bringing us an interaction between the rescue team and the Takahashi family as they treat the rescue team to lunch. This perfectly encapsulates the feeling of being granted a second life after the lights almost dim out.
