Marty, we have to go back! Back, to the fortress!

Earlier today, the official Noitamina YouTube channel started streaming a promotional video for the upcoming Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress compilation films. The 30-second teaser splices together scenes from the show.

Before we let you loose, I’m going to have to toss out a Spoiler Warning, as the piece features footage from the climactic final battle.
