And I'm back!!! Time for some more R&R!!! Before I go any further I'm gonna add a list of all the named characters in Kabaneri. I've watched up to episode five, and only about four people have had their names said aloud, and that's a really long time to wait to know the names of characters. Lotta K's in this bunch.
Ikoma - Our hero boy. Built the piercing gun to kill the Kabane, and by episode 1's end, is one.  Mumei - KOTIF's Mikasa, but even less likable. Ayame Yomokawa - Really likes pink. Ponytail. Kurusu - Ayame's bodyguard. Dick. Takumi - Ikoma's BFF. Fat. Kajika - Ikoma & Takumi's friend; side ponytail. Yukina - The Kotetsujo's new engineer. Pink hair. Sukari - A steam smith who looks like a girl. Blond. Kibito - Cute, buff, samurai man.
So, I need to let it be known before I do anymore of these R&R's: I have not watched a great deal of anime since I started liking anime. The tropes wore on my nerves and for a good while I felt like newer projects that were coming out were very uninspired and boring, and so I haven't really been keeping up with the anime scene for about two years - outside of major hits like Attack on Titan and Kill la Kill, which ironically were the two anime that solidified my anime abstinence last year. So, I was greatly surprised when I saw a preview of KABANERI OF THE IRON FORTRESS on Facebook of all places and was intrigued enough to watch. The action sequence immediately sucked me in and held me with the same vigor that the monster in the preview gripped a woman's hair, and since I've been looking for something to review on here, this seems like a good place to start!!!
