Crunchyroll has announced that it is adding the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress television anime on November 1, 2019. The anime will stream in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East.
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 aired on Japanese television from April to July 2016. The series streamed on Amazon Prime Video with English subtitles as it aired in Japan.
The series has also received two compilation films that premiered in December 2016 and January 2017 in Japan. The two films covered the anime’s first season with some new and enhanced scenes. Crunchyroll screened the films in North American theaters in April 2017.
