It’s May 18th when Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune are due to his Netflix.
The series, an anime adaptation of Carlo Zen (Saga of Tanya the Evil), is about an orbital infantry force called the Yakitori.
The original novels were illustrated by so-bin and published by Hayakawa Publishing, with Hideki Anbo now taking up the challenge as the anime director. Studio Arect is making the show for Netflix.
The hero? He’s called Akira and has joined the Yakitori to change his life. Well, I imagine destiny will oblige.
IMDB offers up this for the storyline.
Set in a future where the solar system is dominated by trade federations who are in constant conflict. In order to escape his restrictive homeland of Japan, and under the recommendation of his military cook friend Pupkin, Akira enlists in a trade federation orbital drop infantry unit. Such infantry are notorious for their 70% casualty rate, and are nicknamed “Yakitori” for their expendability.
