Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: The Battle of Unato

An anime film divided into three episodes on Netflix about a Japanese-influenced island during the industrial revolution, with some steampunk elements, where a virus turns people into zombie-like entities. Fairly enjoyable, although I would have liked to have seen its precursors first, and it has the standard English dub trope of actors without a drop of Asian blood voicing the Japanese(-esque) characters. Granted, the characters do look Caucasian, with anime rarely depicting the Japanese people accurately, but I think it'd sound more authentic with Asian performers versed in English or at least actors who Play Great Ethnics.
