This version of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, currently on Netflix streaming, is a shorter version of a longer anime series. So donít expect too much plot development, too many subplots, or any great character development. Everything is whittled down to three episodes.

The Kabane have risen from the dead to destroy mankind, and a group of fighters working out of an ever moving base, a giant locomotive called the Iron Fortress, are here to save the human race. They include two Kabaneris, half human and half Kabane. They are would be young lovers Ikoma and Mumei. But Ikoma and Mumei, no matter how often they risk their lives, do not have the trust of the militiaís leaders.

There is some great animation here, and lots of action Ė bloody action, so no little ones. It left me wanting to watch the full series.
