Kinda like an 80s movie

Top contender for AOTS

Out of all the shows this season, I had the most problems with this by far. There are just too many dumb moments in this to just skirt over. For a few minutes I thought this was going to be on par with SnK but boy was I wrong. This is worse in every facet excluding having a better mc, which this show does.

Now hold up there. It's good but I still say Jojo and Joker Gamer was better and has more potential.

You aren't supposed to cram all your world building in one episode and that is where this show fails. Too much happened in this episode thus problems awoke. Like that laughably bad train scene midway through the episode.

But I can at least see the guy's reasoning. If the infection only affects live hosts and you "die" by asphyxiation for a few seconds, perhaps tricking the infection into thinking the body is already dead then it's possible to retain your humanity.

Yeah, I pulled that out of my ass but it's the only thing I could come up with.

How is a guy who is a steam engine cleaner able to build a gun in utter secrecy from the government? They are extremely strict in how they operate and so this should have been allowed, especially with how open it is. I mean it is right in his house if you open the door. If kept in secret in some wooden shed or something it would be more believable. The last thing the government want is the citizen's doing their own thing without the government knowing about it.

>Do you want to murderer in crime story to be spoiled at first pages?

Animation quality is decent but nothing special. SnK looked more crisp and did the shading better overall.

>>139770203

In what way you tard? The only thing it has over SnK is the mc and that is that. In every other category SnK does the job better. When I watched the SnK episode 1, I had a lot less problems with that than this pile of crap.

>weakness of fire zombies is the heart

Also what the reason the city fell was stupid. It showed earlier that protocol was the train would stop then they lowered the bridge yet the dumb fucks dropped the bridge since it was near.

It looked nice and was okay, nothing special but steampunk is always cool. Unfortunately it also attracts the worst kind of people and these threads prove it.
>>
>>139769590
I don't really see a figurative trainwreck here, though there already was a real one.

Cutting off limbs doesn't seem guaranteed to work and it might kill the person involved anyway.

Human error on lowering the bridge isn't hard to believe. Worse things have let ISIS blow up people.

I can agree with that. The background characters and Kanabe for example don't look anywhere near as polished as the heroes. However, I'd say it's this pseudo-80's aesthetic that makes it look so good. That alone makes it stand out in comparison to most shows.

They do inspection of people who got bit and will shoot you if they think you are a kabane and you are questioning whether the government might not check the people's home? What if a kabane got passed inspection or secretly got into society? Measures need to take place considering how one can decimate the population,

>They have up to 11 episodes to explain

Really takes you out of the experience if you don't know wtf you are fighting. A generic zombie with no backstory is just lame.

>>139770406

No this isn't feudal japan, this is japan on the brink of collapse with these monsters killing their men and women. Surveillance state is just the thing this place considering you will be killed if you are even hinted to be a kabane.
>>
>>139770415
I'd hate to be defending it but i was just wondering, maybe the standard protocol was to automaatically drop the bridge like they did for the second train. It was only different for the first because it arrived earlier.

Or maybe it was just bad writing after all, beats me.

Thanks for exposing your self as an illiterate fuck.The first train you saw is NOT how they normally handle the trains. In the first train visit ,this trains is off schedule because of the kabane, normally if they had come on time, hit the whistlye the team would have let down the bridge so they can pass in smoothly, no full stop.

In the second train entrance scene, the workers specifically say "It's here! It's the housoyga"(name of the train)
"It's here on time"

The bridge drops so that the train can come in slowly without coming to a full stop, this is how they normally have been doing it for 20 years.

No one expected the zombies to hijack the train and hit the whistle as if they where normal people.

There is no writing flaw here, just you playing dumb and not paying attention when you should have been.

>>gets bit and doesn't turn through sheer willpower

What about the whole burning himself, nailing shit into himself, stretching himself out on the rack and choking himself? That seems to be a bit more than sheer willpower.

I wasn't surprised at all by this since during the ep you clearly see some of the Kabane have human actions, like there's still a person in there. The moment I saw that I figured MC would get bit at some point and overcome it.

Didn't expect that to be in ep1, but whatever.

>open the gate immediately for the second train without confirming its status even though they did so for the first train

Classical late night fuck-up. Our history is riddled with these. Hell going through WW2 there's dozens of these. At the point the Germans got wrecked in a Ukraine town by the Russians because they forgot to close the port to the town.

They normally let the bridge down before the train stops so they don't have to come to a full stop. Normally someone is there waiting for expected trains.

Then it's retarded. Consider how careful and paranoid they are about not letting any Zombies in. There's no way the "normal method" is to just let a train roll in without at least a cursory examination of it's exterior first.

It was a fuck-up, and fuck-ups and understandable. Don't try to overthink it.

There's no point trying to explain it or have it make sense.

Nothing done externally will stop something from spreading if it reaches your heart. Realistically, cutting off the bloodflow to his brain results in him passing out. No question. If it wasn't tight enough to cut off the bloodflow, then whatever is in his blood can get through.

Unless it's some kind of large worm thing, which might be the case from his comment when he looks at the heart he picks up earlier, but in that case, how or why does that turn his whole body purple and gold?

See, there's no way for it to make real sense. So just accept it for what it is. It was a cool scene, it establishes some kind of "internal logic".

Major problems with the episode.

-Girl is already on Ikoma's dick by a simple exchange.

-Retarded that brain dead zombies can run a train and that the people didn't raise the bridge faster.
-Apparently a virus can magically disappear if you cut the oxygen to the body.....huh? That isn't how is vriuses work.
-Shimon is the girl's bodyguard but gets infected.....dumb as fuck. He should have been more capable instead of just dying off so easily. A girl like Mumei can decapitate a kabane but a guy bigger and stronger than her gets bit? Fuck off with that shit

Look, when the main "conflict" of the episode (zombies overrunning the station) could have been avoided by doing a simple thing (checking the goddamn train) it's lazy writing.

No no, I got all that. My problem is that in a world with dangerous zombies standard procedure is to let any announced trains in without any further control? That doesn't make any sense. Give me one solid in-universe reason how that would ever make sense.

Is it really lazy writing? Shit needs to go wrong for there to be a story. Either it can go intentionally wrong, in which case your story is more of a mental battle, or it can go wrong like this, where (at least for a time) your characters are fighting more of a "force of nature" than a villain.

If they check the train properly, it doesn't get in, and the story doesn't start until they do fuck up and zombies get in. Get it? Out of all the years they've been living there, we're watching the time where they finally fucked up. Not all the years where they didn't fuck up, because that would be boring.

Nothing about this is remotely original. Literally shingeki no kyojin with zombies instead of Titans and 3d manuever gear for the steam train. They even have giant walls protecting them from the threat...I mean come on.

-They're Land of the Dead zombies. Not entirely retarded and might think a bit.
-You watch zombie films for accurate medicine or science?
-Again, the protector or one of the team getting infected easily is not uncommon in the genre.
-If the green stone is explained or something else is the reason, then by definition it wont' be an asspull.

Why does the male character jump upwards and back to attack an oncoming enemy? To justify the bimbo using his neck to launch of off? If they're going to even initiate something so fucking stupid then at least have the guy use his hand as a stepping stone instead, even though it's retarded either way. Then this chicken is just bouncing around in the air and you can barely tell if she's even shooting the zombies (if shooting then how doe she remain in the air?) or hitting them or stepping on them. To top it off, this entire set piece looks like garbage because of all the damn CG. I'm not even going to bother with this crap.

>That isn't how is vriuses work
Agree, maybe they'll add some magical explanation next ep

>A girl like Mumei can decapitate a kabane but a guy bigger and stronger than her gets bit?
Yep, the guy didn't have a reason to exist at all besides showing that Mumei is based and can accept that anyone can die any time.

>Green stone
I know we like to assume things and they're usually right but let's give it a chance.
>>
>>139771851
The walls weren't really all that gigantic and they won't be inside of them most of the story. They won't be made of zombies either.
>>
So, what are the general arguments against the first episode? Really, I can only generalize my problem being that the mechanics of, well, everything, aren't clearly defined. It's just left up to inference, rather than direct exposition, and while I appreciate that, it doesn't really suit well for this kind of show.
>>
>>139771491
The Train blew the whistle is the standard protocol for recognizing that the train is still under control. They didn't expect that the kabane had the brains to to know standard protocol and operate a train when they think they're otherwise mindless. This is further shown when ikoma thinkgs he can lead the kabane with his blood but doesn't expect it to jump through the roof instead of just blundering in.

If anything it would be more dangerous to have the train stop like the Tetsujou did, since it leaves the train open to attack potentially blocking the rail.

You also show a naive understanding of how oxygen and the brain works.

-Show doesn't explain kabaneri enough or even give details about they function. Great writing.
-Doesn't matter. if one kabane can decimate a town, then they better check
-They groan, stagger and go for the next. Pretty normal zombie behaviour to me
-I want an explanation that makes sense and nothing more. Excusing this terrible writing isn't going to work when SnK didn't have to resort to it
-It felt like a cop out imho. Barely introduced character who looks like a badass just so the girl and mc can team up is bad writing
-It will without a doubt activate when the mc is in danger, book it

How you guys are defending this SnK ripoff is beyond me.

They DO check, after the train come in of course, the idea is there is no way zombies would use the train and honk the horn.

>>139772282
-Show doesn't need to explain everything in the first episode, Vegeta.
-You clearly haven't dealt with politicians and powerful people. Exceptions happen.
-Land of the Dead zombies also groaned, staggered and went for the next. But also did some smarter things. Like these zombies too.
-SnK isn't the most realistic show either, and you don't seem to know much about zombie stories, even fucking Resident Evil, if you expect them to treat a virus with good science.
-There wasn't much of a badass side to him, and killing him off was a typical trope. It's like getting mad at any other convention.
-And if it does, then it would be fine.

I don't think it's hard to defend for what it is, rather than whatever you want it to be. Incidentally, you could always drop it and be happier. ,

-Proper backstory or even a small start on the major threat that will plague the characters in the 12 episodes is important. We could have gotten something, anything about them but got diddly fucking squat
-Powerful people's status doesn't matter if you are invited to their town and they have proper procedure. Besides normal functions are thrown out the window when humanity is on the brink of oblivion.
-Okay they are functional, doesn't mean they aren't low IQ
-SnK isn't realistic but the first episode was much better than this and didn't have ass pulls for days.
-He looked powerful and had a distinct character design, thus my expectation for him was reasonable. To be taken like a bitch near the end of the episode was very disappointing
-No I think anons will call ass pull or deus ex machina when it happens

If they did a monologue or a narration, people would bitch. They took the "show don't tell" route of explaining the nature of kabane and now retards bitch because they can't do 2+2.
>Powerful people's status doesn't matter if you are invited to their town
Firstly, wrong, secondly it was the leader of the station that gave the exemption, likely because he knows something that will be revealed later that we the audience don't.
>Okay they are functional
This isn't even a topic worth covering
>didn't have ass pulls for days
no matter how much internal logic the show has, you will call it an asspull, even though its the first episode where it's pretty much impossible for anything to be an asspull.
>To be taken like a bitch near the end of the episode was very disappointing
This is the stupidest fucking gripe.

Why do HS have a hard time ripping this one? Screencap and all. Can't they do like they usually do (I don't know how they do it though)?

I don't get why he put that armor like thing around his shoulder and torso when the infection was expanding. It looked pretty useless.

>If they did a monologue or a narration, people would bitch. They took the "show don't tell" route of explaining the nature of kabane and now retards bitch because they can't do 2+2.

The fuck are you babbling about? The central antagonist in this show are the kabane, introducing some backstory about them in episode 1 is something important and needed. No one would complain if they gave us a couple of lines of dialogue about them.

>Firstly, wrong, secondly it was the leader of the station that gave the exemption, likely because he knows something that will be revealed later that we the audience don't.

They shot a guy who had no marks and they thought it was a kabane. They put someone in jail for suspicion of Kabane and now foreign guests enter you city and you don't check them? In normal circumstances they wouldn't be checked but once again this isn't normal circumstances.

>no matter how much internal logic the show has, you will call it an asspull, even though its the first episode where it's pretty much impossible for anything to be an asspull.

Humour me by telling me the asspull in the first episode of SnK.

>This is the stupidest fucking gripe.

It is legitimate complaint. Character is introduced and quickly killed off because he is plot device to get the girl and mc to work together.

>Which would be incorrect because the show has brought it up already in the first episode. Chekhov's gun is not a deus ex machina.

I am talking about the green crystal you twit.

Is it newly implemented on Crunchyroll? They didn't make such a fuss for that before.
>>
>>139769884
WIT is going to repeat SnK forever. Deal with it.
>>
>>139773562
It's Amazon Prime
>>
>>139773562
>Crunchyroll
This show is only streamed by Amazon, that's why it's never been a problem before
>>
>>139773143
Ahaha, what. It's got generic bombast and an unfitting electronic line that makes it sound like a bad anisong remix. I don't get people who cream over supercell.
>>
>>139773542
Holy shit you're an absolute pleb, your complaing that they didn't info dump and wish to introduce the world naturally through active characters.

Like fro real, kill yourself.
>>
>>139773587
Oh yeah that's why then. Thank you.

>>139769176
Even SnKfags don't think SnK is good.

MANIME IS BACK BABY

>>139773562
It's on Amazon, not Crunchyroll. Prime has always had HDCP as far as I know. Going into this HS already knew it was going to be difficult. I'm surprised it only took them a day
>>
>>139773405
see

But kill yourself anyway for being such a little bitch that you would let one fucking autist and some shitposters dictate what you should like.

Oh, my bad. I only watched raw so that's what I assumed

Congratulations. You wrote a lot of responses but didn't actually refute or back up your own arguments in anything. My pro-tip is to go back and re-read the post you replied to. There you will find the answers to your inane problems.

This show has its issues, but you seem too much of a simpleton to even get past the most basic of genre fiction storytelling and and hamhanded character motivations.
>>
>>139771936
But you must answer the basics first.
Who is main girl? Bushy princess or vampire princess?
>>
>>139773802
Definitely the vampire. The MC was totally interested in her.
>>
>>139773723
No, but the girl with blade sandals will.
>>
>>139773802
Karate girl is main
