Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is a new anime by Wit Studio that will premiere in 2016. The anime reunites director Tetsuro Araki and Wit Studio (Attack on Titan), the team responsible for Attack on Titan. The Script is done by Ichiro Okouchi (creator of Code Geass) while Haruhiko Mikimoto (Macross 7) is designing the original characters. Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan) is composing the music.

The anime, coined as a ‘steampunk survival action’ series plays off in an alternate world on an island country named Hinomoto. Humans are hiding on fortresses called Stations since reanimated dead with hearts of iron called kabana overrun the outside. People can, however, move from Station to Station thanks to steam-powered trains.
