    The 6-episode anime series YAKITORI: SOLDIERS OF MISFORTUNE (ヤキトリ, Yakitori) premieres worldwide on Netflix on May 18, 2023.

    This useries is adapted from a brand-new military science fiction novel from Carlo Zen, who made his refreshing debut with The Saga of Tanya the Evil. Akira Ihotsu is a young man who spends his days rebelling against an oppressive society on a future Earth, which is ruled and controlled by Shoren, the Pan-Star System Trade Federation. One day, he is scouted by Pupkin, a “cook” for Shoren, and volunteers to join the planetary orbital infantry force “Yakitori” — a brutal unit whose missions average a shocking death rate of 70%. Along with misfits from several other nations, Akira makes a stand against his pre-determined fate.
