BEST anime of 2016, could be 2018 if there is season 2
This anime have something that interested me when i first saw the trailer, first of all is the Character design. it was created by Haruhiko Mikimoto (anime such as Macross, Gunbuster, Gundam War in The Pocket)
Because of that Kabaneri of The Iron Fortress stands out different and proud than any other anime at this time
Secondly, this anime was created by the same studio, same director, and composer who did the Attack on Titan 3 years ago.
As the results, even now Kabaneri of The Iron Fortress is gaining popularity so fast on its Twitter account (already gained 61.600 follower) since 6th episode aired.
I cannot review the final score for now, but i can give you just numbers, to get the idea on how great this anime is,
EPISODE score : ep 1 : 8/10 ep 2 : 9/10 ep 3 : 8.5/10 ep 4 : 10/10 - END OF PROLOUGE - ep 5 : 9/10 ep 6 : 15/10 - Beautiful. Simply beautiful.
Maybe i am overrated, but i believe it is true for many new anime watchers, especially for a 15 years old teenagers who loved action packed story with strong character such as Mumei, killing zombies on train.
Yes, Train combined with steam punk samurai settings is the main reason why this anime is interesting almost for everyone. even my 72 years old dad could enjoy it with me.
Kabaneri of The Iron Fortress story and plot is pretty much happening inside the train, which makes it very ideal for high speed fighting entertainment. and the characters also seems to be the big reason why people hooked on the story.
By the end of episode 6 i really enjoyed how the character developing with each other, almost all the characters in this anime have their own charisma and appeal for everyone.
Even if the story puzzle and questions did not answered by the end of episode 6, i am sure most of it will be answered when it reached episode 8, and everything will go south and plot intensifies starting from episode 9 to 12 (the final episode).
i hope this review meant something for everyone. thank you for reading my review!
