Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress (also known as Kōtetsujō no Kabaneri in Japanese) is an honorary post-apocalyptic animated series produced by Wit Studio, identified by its production on Attack on Titan. Composed by Ichirō Ōkouchi and coordinated by Tetsurō Araki, season 1 of the series debuted on April 8, 2016 and won the 2016 Newtype Anime Awards for best television anime.
After the arrival of Season 1, two animated rally films, named Koutetsujou no Kabaneri Movie 1: Tsudou Hikari and Koutetsujou no Kabaneri Movie 2: Moeru Inochi, were delivered on December 31, 2016 and January 7, 2017, separately, also filling the rally movies for the first and second part of season 1.
Similarly, Wit Studio announced a third movie, called Koutetsujou no Kabaneri Movie 3: Unato Kessen, and it was delivered on May 10, 2019, for the enjoyment of fans. From that point on, fans did not hear any news about a later season, and here is the beginning and the end, we thought about the possibilities of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 so far.
Kabaneri’s plot of the Iron Fortress
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 has an amazing plot and is set in the early aftermath of the modern revolution in Japan. The series begins when a strange infection has spread throughout the world, transforming the infected into powerful undead animals called Kabane. Unlike zombies, Kabane are almost strong animals and can only be crushed if their hearts, which are encased in iron, are penetrated.
Forced to retreat and protect themselves from the Kabane, people in Japan live in stations that look like fortresses and move between stations using reinforced steam trains. Despite this, this delicate harmony is totally eliminated one day when a large number of Kabane seize one of these trains and attack the Aragane station. As the city collapses under his attack, a young designer named Ikoma takes the opportunity to test his enemy weapon Kabane against intruders.
Since his weapon ends up being a trump, he is affected by the assault. But, instead of transforming into Kabane, Ikoma finds a way to oppose the infection and transforms into a half-human, half-Kabane mix known as Kabaneri. With the help of another Kabaneri named Mūmei, Ikoma and a group of survivors find a way to escape from Aragane station on a steam train. The series follows their experiences and misfortunes as they attempt to lead the battle against the Kabans and save humanity from elimination; We look forward to seeing more action in Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2.
The cast and characters of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2
The male hero of the series, Ikoma is a young specialist at the Aragane station and works as a steam smith to earn money. An intelligent and creative expert, Ikoma cultivates a kind of bolt-action firearm, called a piercing weapon, which he says can pierce the iron hearts of the Kabane. When the Aragane station is invaded by the Kabane, Ikoma finally gets a chance to test his weapon and, to his delight, is able to kill a Kabane with it. Unfortunately, he is bitten at the same time and he becomes Kabaneri.
The female heroine of the series, Mūmei appears during the assault on Aragane Station. Born as a human named Hozumi, Mūmei was exposed to research in her youth and transformed into Kabaneri. Hence, she was named Mūmei, which in a real sense implies Nameless. Being a Kabaneri like Ikoma, Mūmei is a surprisingly strong and intelligent warrior and is equipped to perform many Kabaneri with ease. Later in the series, Mūmei becomes fond of Ikoma.
While Ayame is anything but a main character in the movie, she is nonetheless significant. The eldest girl of the Yomogawa family who runs the Aragane station, Ayame loses her family in the assault on the station and becomes the leader of the crowd of survivors who escape the station. She is sensitive and understanding and is a skilled archer who uses a steam bow to destroy fights.
Another important character in the series, Kurusu is a teenager who plays the role of Ayame’s tutor. A surprisingly talented fighter, Kurusu is subsequently given a supported katana that can penetrate the hearts of the Kabane, and is transformed into a destructive competitor. As the series progresses, Ayame and Kurusu grow fond of each other, and he usually smiles when he’s around her.
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress season 2 release date: when will it release?
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 1 was delivered on April 8, 2016. However, a few years have passed since then, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 has yet to be officially declared by Wit Studio. This makes anticipating the future of the program somewhat complex.
Anime series are generally based on manga or light novels, and their progress is regularly dependent on original material. Nonetheless, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is a totally unique animated series, and without an official announcement for Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2, it is proving very difficult to assess what will become of the series.
That being said, on September 13, 2019, Netflix released its spinoff animated movie, called ‘Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: The Battle of Unato,’ and instead of presenting it as a movie, the streaming channel was featured as a full movie. . three episode season. This could mean that if the film excels on stage,
Netflix could offer an entire season of continuation. For now, it is still too early to know what is on the horizon for this anime. Either way, we look forward to much more in the years to come. Ideally, if things go well, we could see Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 before the end of 2022 or later. What’s more, when that happens, we will update it here in this part.
