On her birthday, October 20, the official website for Wit Studio’s original anime series Koutetsujo no Kabaneri/Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress posted a teaser visual drawn by anime character designer Yasuyuki Ebara and a 65-second teaser trailer for its forthcoming film Unato Kessen/The Battle of Unato, featuring its main heroine Mumei with tears in her eyes. In the clip, Mumei voiced by Sayaka Senbongi looks back on her first encounter with the protagonist Ikoma and reveals her true felling toward him.
The 12-episode TV series was aired in Japan from April to June 2016, then followed by its two compilation films: Part 1 Tsudou Hikari/Gathering Light in December 2016 and Part 2: Moeru Inochi/Burning Life in January 2017. The medium-length newly-produced film Unato Kessen/The Battle of Unato is written/directed by the TV series’ director Tetsuro Araki (Attack on Titan), and is set to be released in Japan in the spring of 2019.
