Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 Release Date (Is KOIF an AOT rip-off?)

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 Release Date

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is an anime that is cherished and loved by the whole anime community. Many lovers of this series are desperately waiting for a new season. If you are one of the fans who are trying to find as much information about Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 as possible then, you are at the right place! Before I reveal all the information that I have about Kabaneri season 2, let us look back at what this show is all about.

Out of all the anime out there, people think that Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is the closest to Attack On Titan. There are a lot of reasons why people think that:

• Both the Kababneri of the Iron Fortress and Attack On Titan have the same studio (Wit’s studio)The same studio means that both were produced by the same director and the same chief of animation. Not to mention, the premise of both anime also overlaps. Flesh-eating monsters attack humanity and the only choice humans are left with is to build walls.

• These so-called monsters are Titans in the case of Attack on titan, and Kabani in Kabaneri of the Iron fortress.

• The main characters use hatred and rage to curse the monsters, both of them want to exterminate every last one of this so-called Kabane or Titans.

That’s all, if we go more in-depth we won’t see any more similarities. Both anime are really well done and they shouldn’t be compared any more than necessary.

And calling Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress an Attack On Titan rip-off is a little unfair, don’t you think?

Both of them may have some similarities but it’s not like they are both the same thing.

Now, let’s get on to the plot Kabaneri of the iron fortress, Horrible zombie-like creatures seek human flesh and humans have no choice but to counter or not encounter them. The story takes place in Japan immediately after an industrial revolution. The root cause of all the zombies is an unusual virus plague that has spread all across the globe. It converts the infected into zombie-like creatures called Kabane.

However, this Kabane is almost impossible to defeat. The only way to kill them is to pierce their hearts, but their hearts have an Iron layer around them which makes the task even more difficult than it already is.
In order to be safe from these insane creatures, humans build fortresses and the travel between them is done through specially made locomotives so that they can do transportation and traveling as safely as possible.

A young engineer named Ikoma which is the protagonist specializes in making weapons. His new anti Kabane weapon turns out to be a huge success but he gets infected in the process. In spite of getting infected by the Kabane, he somehow manages to withstand the virus and only turns into a half Kabane. In other words, he becomes a Kabaneri (Half-human, half Kabane). This could also be labeled as another similarity between Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and Attack on titan.

After becoming a Kabaneri, Ikoma somehow manages to flee from the Kabane together with another Kabaneri (Mumei) and the series continues to show their struggles and efforts as they attempt to do whatever they can in order to save humanity.

After the season 1 of Kabaneri of the Iron fortress ended, it didn’t receive any sequel until this year. This year a sequel movie was made where the story that took place was about a half year later than where season 1 ended.

But what’s next, what about the Kabaneri Season 2?

This movie was released almost three years after the first season. We know that we won’t get the second season this year and Wit studio is doing Attack on Titan’s final season next year, so the chances of getting it next year are also pretty slim.

This means that we can expect the Kabaneri of the iron fortress season 2 to be released in 2021 at the earliest.

Since it is a highly loved and admired anime who also got English dubbed. There shouldn’t be any reason to not do a sequel, especially considering that they made a sequel movie.

If it’s something good and the fans want it, it gets a sequel. That’s how anime studios work. (There can sometimes be exceptions like No game no life, let’s hope it also gets a second season).
For now, there is no official announcement.
