I just love all the complaining about lack of subs from people who are used to just getting rips straight from crunchyroll within hours. This sort of shit takes time, the fact that there's even a raw up is kind of a miracle. Try waiting months for subs of some things like I've had to for some OVAs and Movies like Yamato 2199 or Votoms or even years in the case of some older anime or those that would air during pre-crunchyroll times. Usually you didn't get subs till as long as 20 hours later if you were lucky.

Saw first episode, like I expected it was alright and kind of a combination of everything WIT has animated up to this point and some character and setting introductions. Music was pretty generic Sawano but of the tolerable sort so far and he manages to hold off on the vocal spamming at least until the final big action scene. It's all pretty damn textbook action anime so far and to be honest the animation wasn't as great as I expected and kind of choppy but the art quality looked above average for TV in a lot of scenes. Not the god tier quality some are making it out as. Like pure 7/10 tier premiere pretty much. This is probably the peak of the show too before it really starts going off the rails so not particularly high expectations.
>>
Subs are out
>>
>>139761406
Yes, he is. He may be smart in the sense that he invented a new gun and was able to stop his transformation, but he doesn't use his head in situations that matter.

He may not be a pussy but he's definitely not smart or logical. He needlessly put himself in danger to test his new toy. He lost his specimen because he couldn't keep his mouth shut because muh morals.
>>
It's not great, but not terrible. Watchable.
>>
First ep. 6/10
>>
>>139761420
How is it shit?
The first episode was amazing, and according to the people who saw the pre-screenings episode 2 and 3 are way better.
>>
>>139761629
He's quite full of anger and rage. I don't expect him to be Oberstein or any other cold genius.

I would say he has an above average level of intelligence for a teen and is into nerdy things with a motivation driving him, but otherwise he's not exactly brilliant or mature.

But does he have a wicked sense of humor?
>>
>>139761699
How is it not? Did we not watch the same show?

Why the fuck don't they wait for the train to approach and stop before lowering the bridge (like they did for the first train?). They could've had the infected train just derail instead of ramming into the city.
>>
>>139761629
He does use his head in every situation.

He lost his specimens because a man was about to be wrongfully killed. Those police/bushi where not even following their own rules out of fear, he simply told them to calm down, enfore the law and lock the guy up.
He was the only logical person in the entire scenario, fuck him for caring about people right?

The invention of his weapon can possible save his world, just cause he has the balls to put to use his weapon doesn't make him stupid.
It was smart of him to lure the kabane to him home and actually use his weapon, now he knows it works.

You're being absurd if you think his actions are unjustified.

Losing the specimen was stupid. He couldn't prioritize. His research for the greater good or 1 faggot?

If he had died and the weapon had failed, the invention would've died with him. Stupid on gamble on his part. He could've tested it at least once before luring the zombie.

Cause the guy signaled them early, with the first train they got there, stopped, then signaled.

The men on the bridge just heard the signal and let down the bridge, none of them knew the zombies could hijack a train.

No it wasn't a typical zombie action show.
From the entire dynamic surrounding suicide bags, to the rural japan industrialization steam punk setting, with all the factions/class and society system in place.
This level of detail alone sets apart from the rest.

Not to mention it's not just a group of 3-5 survivors, it's an entire community of people all under attack, unlike your typic zombie action show.

Who signaled them? I'm not going to rewatch it, but from what I remember 1 guy was like "oh, train is arriving" and because of that they decided to drop the bridge.

You would think they would've implemented a system to keep dumb shit like this from happening.

Who is to blame for the terrible encode? HS or Amazon?

I seriously doubt it's going to have much time to explore that so much as zombies and fanservice and craziness for another 11 episodes. If it does I'd be pleasantly surprised but Okouchi doesn't seem the type to go in depth on that sort of stuff in a short amount of time or at least not in a way that isn't stark and black and white.

>>139762573
Again, they should've implemented a system to check that a train isn't overrun before lowering the bridge.

Having a train stop and the conductor come out to signal would've been an easy solution to prevent the whole mess. The way they wrote the story was just lazy.

That's the part that kind of surprised me and sort of not. I was expecting a bit of a drop off but not for it to be so noticeably choppy in some scenes. Its like when they were adding all this detail and shading they didn't entirely realize that they still had to make it move. There were even some moments of QUALITY too but the Sakuga sets or what we got of them at least worked well enough. Its pretty obvious this shows going to have the usual WIT struggles already within the first episode kind of like how it went with Owari. They're just so uneven, one scene can look well above average for TV animation and then the one right after can look noticeably below.

I thought it was pretty good. I'm not going to lie though, there was some definite shades of AoT. At least the Mikasa like character has more personality.

It does make sense though, you could have figured it out if you would have used your brain.
>>
>>139761629
He makes some mistakes, but that doesn't mean he's an idiot, it means he's human. He's not the cool-headed glasses guy MC who logically makes every decision with cold calculation. He's the hot-blooded guy out for revenge who's also intelligent enough to make things go his way.

It's the first episode os god knows where this is going to go, but he put his feelings first about saving a man's life over just getting another specimen. That doesn't make him stupid, it sets the tone of his character as intelligent but emotional. Further, he clearly had figured out how he thought he was going to stop the virus long before he was ever attacked since he had that equipment on hand and at the ready. Yeah he's smart, but he's cocksure and given to emotion. So far he comes off as a consistent character. Though the mechanism by which he didn't die is not yet explained.

Now this is just about the character being "stupid." This isn't a statement about whether this show is going to be any good because it's only the first episode. But people who say it makes no sense are clearly too stupid to even watch cartoons.

It was obvious it's the other way around. Everyone thinks it's a supernatural thing but the MC, who thinks it's a virus. Except that his method of stopping the infection only makes sense in the real of magic. The whole thing is just stupid as fuck.

Choking yourself so that an infection or virus doesn't reach your brain is probably one of the dumbest things on the show. That's not how infections or viruses work. I get you're supposed to have a degree of suspension of disbelief but you have to admit that was retarded story writing.

You must be blind, because so far it has been above average the whole time. I'm not sure if you realize how low the average every season is, and this first episode certainly wasn't below.

If you choke yourself for a bit you don't prevent all blood flow to your brain.

If you successfully choke yourself, you'll become brain dead.

Virus/Infections cannot realistically be purged from the body so quickly that he only needs to stop blood flow for a few seconds.

Stupid, lazy writing.

After 20 years of that shit you would think they would've implemented a safety mechanism for instances like this. Like a whistle code the conductor needs to do before the bridge is lowered.

It's plain and simple lazy writing. Drama/dumbshit happening for the sake of moving the plot forward.

Inasmuch as it really doesn't matter unless it becomes a plothole later in the series, my guess is that the virus only spreads for so long, like until it reaches the heart, so restricting the brain's blood during that period means it just stops.

I honestly thought he was going to get the bionic arm just by cutting it off, but then how would he become HALF KABANE!?

I don't know why people are in a tizzy, I thought we all came here to watch a trainwreck that might accidentally turn out good rather than the other way around.

Yes, that's how plots work. If you want things to happen according to full causality and not the will of a writer, then stop bothering with fiction and just videotape a train station. Maybe if you're rich you could get someone to rotoscope it, even.

Cyberpunk makes plenty of sense, because all the cybershit is a fairly reasonable expectation of the future, or at least it was 30 years ago.
And the cybershit really is just a plot device to develop characters.

Steampunk is distinct, despite having been kicked off by the same person.

I know. My point simply was that the zombies being super strong and the infection being magic is perfectly fine.

Be it cyberpunk, steampunk or whatever.

What the fuck were you expecting for m a show that takes place in the not-edo period with trains and pile bunkers?

>>139764056
Confirmed not knowing anything about the brain. You can live for several minutes without blood flow to the brain before getting brain damage. You can continue to live for longer with the risk of brain damage. You are conscious for a while then you pass out but you still live for much longer and if blood flow is restored you'll come out alive but probably worse for the wear.

But this isn't even pretending to be hard science. It has the appeal of an 80s action flick. It is wholly without the pretension that would warrant legitimate hate just because something "does not make sense."
>>
>>139763997
>if it was just magic and the key to stopping a curse was choking yourself, that'd be even dumber, unless this were actually some sort of BDSM fetish-comedy.
If it was magic, they could use something else to stop the curse, like the stone in his hand. The choking thing was stupid anyway.

Them lowering the bridge before even seeing the train is shitty writing because it literally contradicts what we saw earlier in the episode where the Koutetsujou was stopped outside of the bridge.

>>
>>139764713
I'm saying what the point of criticizing it on the merits of its science or rationality when that's clearly not the point? Yes you can, that's a legitimate way of going about it, but the mantra is to repeat to yourself its just a show and relax. I didn't watch Mahou shoujo nante moiidesukara last season for a realistic take on the effects of being a mahou shoujo on a child. Criticizing it on those merits would be missing the point.

And no, I'm not saying this show will be good, but in a bombastic action show you expect things to be stupid. If they're not, then you can be surprised. The writing isn't much more flimsy than say the original terminators or shaun of the dead.

That's my excuse for accepting flimsy writing. If the show made some pretense of being smart when it wasn't (aldnoah.zero) I'd be far less forgiving, but as a person who watches both arthouse films and bad b-moves I'm capable of appreciating works on what merits seem applicable.

That happened in the original SDF macross as well as Macross 7 or did you forget about how they beat the protodevlin.

Unfortunately, Kabeneri (and even the MC) takes itself much too seriously. Maybe not on the level of aldnoah.zero, but I get the impression that the directors were going for something epic and more than just mindless fun and it's just frustrating to watch something that could've been great if they actually sat down to think about the writing.

Do you even know how often a train arrives at each station? And what if there is a disagreement on the code among the stations? How long would it take to set the standard?

Also you think this is something easy and HURR DURR EVERYONE WOULD DO IT, but guess what, we got plenty of fuckups in the past 2 centuries because scientist had different standards. And we aren't living in a world full of zombies, so we have plenty of time to think about shit like that.

The other problem with VNs is that they're just too long and for whatever reason the cover-part-of-it-next-season-probably-never method of adapting doesn't seem to have caught on with them. A two-cour anime adaptation of a VN might cover as much material in terms of words and/or reading time as a long-running battle shounen adaptation.

I'm giving the silly writing a pass not because it's going to be AOTY but because it's a show like mayoiga that has a greater chance to be a trainwreck and thus fun. IT also has some chance to actually be decent. But unlike mayoiga threads, people here are either too eager into making it into worst trash of all time or AOTS.

Just pointing out your argument is dumb. Its hard for the world to consolidate under 1 measurement unit because countries have already been so entrenched and invested (culturally and monetarily) in their respective units.

It's another thing to not be able to establish any sort of protocol for entering or communicating with a station within 20 years - especially if the livelihood of humanity depended on it. Even the most backward country can establish this.
