Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Anime Review/Suggestion
Iron Hearted Zombie Vampires! Alright so I recently finish this one (12 episodes) and I have to say I have mixed feelings about it… If you are one of those people that are looking for something completely new and innovative with crazy plot twists, this is not the anime for you… However if you like other shows like Owari no Seraph, Black Bullet, and God Eater than this show might be for you.
The show takes place during the Industrial Revolution, humanity is threatened by the Kabaneri and people are forced to live in cities surrounded by walls ( Sound like another show? ). Kabaneri are basically zombies whose only weak point is there Iron Covered Heart. It is said that cutting their head off is only a temporary measure as they will grow it back, so the only way to finish them is to pierce their Iron Covered Heart.
Ikoma a young steamsmith has researched Kabane on his own time and worked on developing both a weapon for killing Kabane and a way to stop the infection from spreading. When the town he lives in is attacked by the Kabane, Ikoma rushes to his home to look for his test weapon when he is attacked and infected by one. He is able to use his inventions to stop the infection from spreading in his body and use his weapon to successfully kill the Kabane that attacked him, however his cure came with consequences. The new Ikoma has the power to defeat the Kabane but also a hunger for humans…
In conclusion I did find the anime interesting in the beginning, however both the main villain and the ending where a little disappointing to me. I would only recommend to watch this anime is you have some free time and nothing else to watch, or if you liked the shows above than this anime might be pleasing to you! I wouldn’t call the anime bad… but it wasn’t good either. Have you already read/watched Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress? What are your thoughts on it!?
I rate : 7/10
