Wit Studio is still to renew the anime series under the title “Koutetsujou no Kabaneri”. We are a little shocked about this as the series has been reckoned as one of the most expected premieres and being launched it has proved its worthiness. So, keep abreast of the situation if the renewal should be announced come rain or shine.
Making a retrospective journey to the background of the story
Wit Studio is known to us particularly for the anime series under the title “Attack on Titan”. This series is new and has only one season under its belt. In order to create a second installment, the animators from the above-mentioned studio need the basis that is yet to be created and published, particularly the mangaka Hajime Isavama.
Pursuing to fill the gap, the developers made up their minds to create another story on the same subject and titled it “Koutetsujou no Kabaneri”. The English version of the title is Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.
The series broadcast was a matter of concern for the Fuji Television Network and Amazon Prime Video.
If to be brief enough about the story, we should say that it narrates about a steampunk-style standoff between the remains of humans and ghoul mutants, with practically similar characters.
The epidemic that happened to the human race twenty years ago was the starting point for a new life – people started turning into ghouls with “mechanical” hearts.
The hard shell that covered their hearts made them practically immortal. It could be reckoned as some kind of curse but not for Ikoma, the main character of the story. He is a self-taught mechanic. Once he decided to penetrate into the essence of the transformation process that turned humans into ghouls.
The story is much exciting and full of action, as well as personal drama. It is about a strong will and a desire to protect others from the danger that is knocking at the door.
What is the response?
According to the reviews from critics, the series is as much perfect as it has been expected. The artwork is on the high level while the storyline is chock-full of details. The characters are charismatic and memorable. The action is also an integral part of the story. So, everything is created just for us to enjoy.
Moreover, the series has been accepted with flying flowers by the whole world, no matter whether it is Japan or the Western part of the globe. Thus, we are sure that the developers should go beyond the 12 episodes packed in the first season.
When can we expect the release of another chapter?
The anime series is still on the hook although the ratings are more than simply high. The anime show is a true breakthrough. Nevertheless, the developers are so far tight-lipped about its future.
We are keeping our fingers crossed in favor of the near resumption for the second installment, as well as of the appearance of the Koutetsujou no Kabaneri season 2 release date. Stay tuned as we can catch it getting closer to this autumn if the launch is planned to be held in winter 2017.
