After the three years, the anime is coming back on 2019 to deliver its sequel, a movie continuation titled “Kōtetsujō no Kabaneri: Unato Kessen” or also known as Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: Unato Decisive Battle. The movie will takes place six months after the events from the finale of the original anime.

The “steampunk survival action” story takes place on the island country Hinomoto, where humans hide themselves in fortresses called stations against the threat of zombie-like beings with steel hearts known as “Kabane.” Only armored locomotives known as “Hayajiro” go between the stations.

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: Unato Kessen in general can be considered as the third film in the franchise. This is because just like those giant anime titles nowadays such as Overlord, Attack on Titan, and Code Geass; the anime also received two compilation movies which were released on December 2016 and January 2017.
