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.
The movie is, “Koutetsujou no Kabaneri Movie 3: Unato Kessen (Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: The Battle of Unato)”Since it’s the sequel to the first season. It’s obvious every fan might already watch it.
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.
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 2 Release Date
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.
