Mumei the most Kawaii anime girl in 2019!! “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato” is a MUST WATCH!!
The medium-length animation movie “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato”, which was finally released in May 10 in Japan. I watched the show immediately! And that was fantastic! It was a worth of waiting for three years since the TV series ended!!!!
This time, Kabaneri lover Animachi talks up the highlight of “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato” without a spoiler as much as possible!
Absolutely Beautiful Drawings
It was like this from the TV series, but the character and the background are incredibly beautiful. It is surprising that the beautiful characters designed by Mikimoto are described like this. It is amazing when Mumei’s face comes close to the camera. And the scenery of Unato that became the stage of this work is really beautiful. It is just crazy good background drawing.
The cut that Japan’s land is burning in red comes at the last OP theme picture is so damn cool. It makes me shaking.
Super Speedy Action Scenes
The action scene is scaled up compared to the TV series. WIT STUDIO is known as the studio created “Attack on Titan” anime series as well, but they are so good at moving characters so smooth. I am wondering how they do this every time.
Above all, you should be amazed by the acrobatic battle scenes of Mumei. She moves so fast and smooth, worth every penny of watching it.
Music by Hiroyuki Sawano & EGOIST
And the music of Mr. Hiroyuki Sawano who enlivens the story. As demonstrated by “Guilty Crown” and “Attack on Titan”, he and the director Tetsuro Araki have a good match. There is no one better than Mr. Hiroyuki Sawano if you order the music of serious action anime of this kind. His music had an overwhelming presence again this time. “ninelie” is great no matter how many times you listen. A true masterpiece.
And EGOIST’s new song “Sakase ya Sakase” was in charge of the theme song of this work. You can try the song from the following official video ↓
A pure Japanese style dance song which features Japanese traditional instruments such as shakuhachi and shamisen. The song perfectly matches the world and background of “Kabaneri”. I can even hear even the kabuki scream. You can see Mumei and co. are dancing traditional Yosakoi with the song, and there is no discomfort at all. ryo (The composer of EGOIST) can create any type of music. Genius.
Now it is hard for me to live with or without Mumei
Yeah it is like the famous U2 song. I can’t talk much about it because I do not want any a spoiler here, the pure relationship between Ikoma and Mumei makes me smile . Just watch the show now. Compared with the early days, Mumei is grown into a lovely girl. How “Kabaneri” turns into Romantic Comedy? Well, I take it because I love Mumei. Every single person watched the show would be falling love with her.
I also like the pair of Sukari x Yukina.
A Must Watch
“Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato” is a very high quality anime film and you will certainly enjoy it, no matter if you are anime fan or not. If you watch this, you’ll be a fan of “Kabaneri” in one shot.
The app “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress -Ran-” released half a year ago is not bad either, but what us “Kabaneri” fans were looking for is exactly this “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato”. I am very happy to see the activities of the Iron Fortress characters, including Mumei and Ikoma. It was a very dense 80 minutes. Thank you very much to the animators and voice actors who worked on the show. It was an amazing piece of work that exceeded the expectations that had been swelled from the PV release in earlier March! The theater is open for 2 weeks in Japan, so if you are interested, go to a movie theater nearby right now! You can also watch it on Amazon Prime Video & Netflix as many as you like! (Maybe not available worldwide yet, but it will come)
