“Go Steam Ahead with Your Soul….”

Thanks to Crossover Queen (C. Chancy), this author was introduced to Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress*, a zombie anime set in a fictionalized version of Japan. The series has been mentioned in other posts, so regular readers here are probably familiar with the basics of the story. As yet, however, we have not looked at the series’ music.

Of the three songs linked below, I have to say that I enjoy “S_Team” best. The opening and closing themes, along with the rest of the music in Kabaneri, is spectacular. You will never hear me say that it is not good. But this song from the video game (which is being discontinued – darn), has a certain peppiness that the others do not. It certainly helps when one is writing!

You can find the Kabaneri OP on iTunes, but not “S_Team,” or any of the other songs/themes. (Double darn.) “S_Team” is on Spotify, I have heard, so if you have an account there you are in luck. If not, you will have to buy the CD or go to Youtube and add this music to your list. And let’s face it, Youtube was created for this. Actually, it was made specifically for cat videos, AMVs, and finding obscure scenes/themes that would be lost to history otherwise. 🙂

Enjoy the music, readers. And if you have the time, check out Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. It is a good series worth watching!
