The steampunk anime series Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress managed to blow us away with high stakes action and characters worth loving - and luckily, we can share that the anime isn't the ending of the story. After an intense first season, many fans wondered just what could come next, but we now know the film is a confirmed sequel to the original set six months after the events of the anime series.
If you watched Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, odds are you binge watched it because of its intensity and consistant plot progression, drawing comparisons to the anime juggernaut Attack on Titan. The ending of the first season felt like it wrapped up major storylines, but the setting alone offers a rich world with plenty of direction to tell a much larger story or at the very least, to see continued character development that suited the series so well in the first place. With the inclusion of a steampunk train meeting a zombie apocalypse, it would be hard to pass up an opportunity for the creators to continue on - hence the need for this movie that has just been confirmed for a 2018 release.
The website for Kabaneri of the Iron Fortreess mentions that the upcoming film as a middle chapter in the story, which could imply that if the film finds the success the series did, we could be seeing a third season sometime in the future. Regardless, the notion of seeing more Kabaneri is enough to spark excitement for anime fans everywhere, so keep up with PopWrapped for more on Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress!
