As the world is in the middle of an industrial revolution, a monster appears that cannot be defeated unless its heart, which is protected by a layer of iron, is pierced. By infecting humans with its bite, the monster can create aggressive and undead creatures known as Kabane. On the island Hinomoto, located in the far east, people have built stations to shelter themselves from these creatures. People access the station, as well as transport wares between them, with the help of a locomotive running on steam, called Hayajiro. Ikoma, a boy who lives in the Aragane station and helps to build Hayajiro, creates his own weapon called Tsuranukizutsu in order to defeat the creatures. One day, as he waits for an opportunity to use his weapon, he meets a girl named Mumei, who is excused from the mandatory Kabane inspection. During the night, Ikoma meets Mumei again as he sees Hayajiro going out of control. The staff on the locomotive has turned into the creatures. The station, now under attack by Kabane, is the opportunity Ikoma has been looking for.

Air Date: 4/8/2016-Present




From what I see, let me put it straight for you.

Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train meets zombies, and it looks like the characters are in for one HELL of a ride.

Eh
I'm really enjoying this show so far! 
A lot of people have also compared it to SnK, and it shares the same animation studio so I can see where theyre coming from haha. xD
Also I love how the art style looks a bit old schoolish, the animation is top notch though. :D

Watched the first episode.

Yeah, I agreed with the fact that it has some SnK vibes xD

And hell yeah, I agree with the old art-style blended with well-crafted animation. 

I like how the Ironka (?) managed to reverse being infected with that weird machine. Wondered how he did that? Only  future episodes will tell..

Looks like the governments are basically a bunch of dicks. Couldn't even double check to see if he was bitten - just straight up kill him and when they were wrong, they act like it was a typical tuesday. I know humanity succumbed to fear, but damn, rationality got cut in as well. :pls:

I have some high expectations from this, so I'm jumping onto episode two and three now :pimp:

Right!?

I mean, I guess that he doesn't trust them and whatnot, but shouldn't he have some brain power and be all "Huh, this guy isn't instantly attacking.. or hasn't changed yet despite being bitten like a gallion times" xD

I'm wondering what's up with Ikoma attacking the princess - I think it implied that they need blood to fed, I presume? That's gotta thin the line of trust between him and the people.. especially after that great speech :pls:

I think that is implied indeed. Now the question is what kind of blood, human or animal? Also I wonder how they're gonna get outta this mess now. xD

Yeah, I hope it's any kind of blood. Though, I haven't see any animals aside from birds.. that's going to be difficult lol

Ikoma stopped the now-infected blood from flowing to the brain, thus somehow preventing him from being turned completely. He's still a Kabane of sorts, but he hasn't completely turned yet, thus him being a Kabaneri. How that didn't outright kill him yet since he's getting no oxygen to his brain confuses me, but I'll pass that off as "Undead bullshit", XD.

On another note, Episode 4 was CRAZY. Like holy shit that fight sequence was amazing, but the end of the fight was rather disappointing to me.

I also don't understand how the princess managed to stop herself from bleeding to death. You can't just stop bleeding when you cut an artery Bl.

Hmm so the cliffhanger of ep 3 was less important than I thought. xD
Also I like how there are different sorts of kabanes now.
I still don't understand why the blonde guy was also thrown with the kabaneris though...
So far my favourite character has to be Ayame, her chara development has been really good and I just like nice characters. xd Also her bow and arrow thing was super cool!

Yeah. The cliffhanger of episode 3 was kind of ignored somewhat. I like how those guys who took over the "mission" to go to another direction, basically left with no punishment whatsoever. They should at-least pay the families for all the suffering they put them through and all the deaths - hell, kicked them off the train for their incompetence when they were warned that it's extremely dangerous. 

Kind of weird though how that sword-fighting kabane didn't immedaitely turned the Samurai dude into one of them. Plot saves his ass that day xD

@Pinkeyy 

Right!? I didn't understand why the blonde guy got thrown in there -- and even the girl on the lesser extent. I can understand that they were friends with Ikoma (well, at least the guy), but the blonde one and the girl.. that just came out of left field. Many it'll be expanded on in due time?
