Attack on Kabane? Check out Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress!

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Vol. 2

When Wit Studio took some time off from Attack on Titan season 2, the team joined forces with Ichiro Okouchi (the writer of Code Geass) to produce an original anime: Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.

The story takes place on the island country Hinomoto, where humans have built walls and fortresses to shelter from the attacks of zombie-like creatures called “Kabane”. The only way to kill them is to pierce through their iron-shielded heart. Kabane reproduce by infecting humans with a virus. One such infected is a young engineer who manages to resist the change and use his power to fight for mankind.

Wait, doesn’t that sound familiar? Well it does share some similarities with Attack on Titan, but check out who is in the production team: the character designer from Macross, the composer from Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, and don’t forget the director of Death Note and Guilty Crown. This is an all-star list and sure won’t be disappointing. A nice twist is the steampunk setting and prettier animation (you should check out the manga of Attack on Titan!) that makes Kabaneri an outstanding sensation.

Vol.2 DVD and Blu-ray are released today featuring episodes 5 to 8 and a bonus drama CD, a character book with box illustrated by Haruhiko Mikimoto of Macross fame.
