I finished watching Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress a few weeks ago and I absolutely loved it. I happened to find it on Amazon Prime and it was a brilliant short anime series considering it was only 12 episodes long. I recently found out that it was released for viewing on Crunchy Roll so I figured I would share with you guys why I recommend watching this series.
5 Reasons why you should watch Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
Amazing fight Scenes
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, also known as Kōtetsujō no Kabaneri, has some of the most amazing fight scenes with weapons that I’ve seen in an anime show. The action filled episodes are absolutely brilliant and beautifully created.
Short anime series
If you’re looking for an anime series to watch within a short amount of time that doesn’t have a ton of episodes, then this is the anime for you. The series is only 12 episodes long, but there are 3 movies that connect to the series which I plan on watching.
Amazing story line and awesome for anyone who is a lover of zombies
This series basically focus on an outbreak of infected humans that are turned Kabane (corpses) that devour anything alive in range. Basically it’s a war between humans and zombies, but things are more than one they appear as you dive deeper into the story of what is actually going on.
Great anime recommendation for Attack on Titan lovers
I binged watch Attack on Titan earlier this year and I have to say that I would recommend this series for someone who enjoys that series. The fight scenes as well as some of the corruption going on relates to Attack on Titan, but on a much lower scale in my opinion.
Lots of characters to cosplay
So if you’re a cosplayer like me, you’ll find yourself wanting to cosplay quite a few characters on this show. I know for sure that I plan on cosplaying Mumei and Kurusu.
Overall, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is a pretty interesting series to watch. One thing I will say is that I feel like watching the movies will connect a lot of things that weren’t exactly revealed within this short sries… I’ll let you guys know what I think once I watch the movies, but jump into the world of the Kabaneri. It is definitely worth the watch for sure!
