First episode aired today

What did you think?

>>139776839
One of the best of the season. Surprising when you consider who's in charge of this.

>>139776839
Damn prodigy found a cure and a way to kill them all in the first episode.
>>
Just finished the episode, pretty damn good and I'm officially interested
>>
I can't believe that people actually think the Shogun's little sister getting a free pass through strip-searches is a plot hole.

The choking shit was pretty retarded but they will probably explain it next episode. I will reserve judgement until then.

I hope that the gate being lowered was just a fuckup (plausible) and not standard procedure.

Obviously the zombies are not completely unintelligent, they use the train whistle and get mad when one of their own gets shot. Also, one outsmarted the MC. Rekt.
>>
>>139777130
Okouchi can infuriate me to no end, but I can't deny that he makes entertaining shows.
>>
>>139776839
Loving those amazon prime budgets.
>>
>>139776839
The Main character is the best of the season so far.
The steam punk x industrial japan aesthetic is amazing
Lots of detail in the world too/beautiful backgrounds
Loving how they rattle up the tension and the intensity of a lot of the scenes
Also suicide bags are is an interesting concept born from their hysteric state of mind
Really liked all the faction/class commentary

So far it looks great, just hoping the plot isn't shit or too wide scale that it isn't conclusive.
>>
I love how there has been like 5 threads about a single episode lmao, also MC being based.

So you can kill them by shooting them in the head... So why did he make a gun to break their hearts?

Is it going to turn out that there are some that aren't just zombies?

Also is the MC SUPA SPECIAL! or was it the stone?
>>
SCIENCE

>>139777673
>So you can kill them by shooting them in the head
What makes you think that fatty at the end is "dead"?

>>139776839
MC is awesome, I liked the show.

Dat feet.
>>
>>139777777
FUCK
>>
>>139777147
I don't understand. How the fuck did that work? Nippon MC willpower magic?
>>
I don't mind MCs that are pure, ideal heroes, driven to act in the pursuit of what they believe is right, independent of a traumatic past or whatever. In fact I love them, Superman is my favorite superhero for this reason among others.

But you know you're gonna have problems when the way the show decides to demonstrate this quality in its protagonist, is by having the people MC interacts with be complete morons, especially once he starts whipping out rules and regulations on them.

If he develops anything resembling superpowers as a result of the bite I am dropping this show. He already has the super steam powered captive bolt pistol, the fuck does he need to be Spider-Man for?

And it will be extremely painful because I loved everything else about the episode.

Also why the fuck did he cut his wrist if he wanted to leave a blood trail? Jesus christ.
>>
Who did it first though?
>>
>>139776839
I found it pretty interesting. Steam punk feudal japan with zombies? Good animation, interesting concept. It could go down the shitter but I am optimistic.

MC isn't a bitch either, that's nice.

What's with narrator's accent?
>>
>>139777972
The virus is grossed out by auto erotic asphyxiation obviously
>>
>>139777972
Probably related the green stone, also limiting the blood flow. How the virus works is something that will be mentioned later

A steam-powered super tourniquet that cut off blood flow to his brain.

I'm guessing the virus is extremely virulent but if it doesn't completely convert its host in a short amount of time it goes dormant or the infection becomes asymptomatic to an extent.
>>
>>139777673
I think stone is only a keepsake
Girl also has powers
>>
How is the reception for the episode in Japan?
>>
>>139778060
I figured the stone was just a memento, rather than a magical gem antidote.
>>
My biggest problem is....

Where the fuck did they get all the wood they used to build all that feudal japan shit? Did you see that? Basically everything was wood, but there weren't any forests inside the walls. A human settlement using wood at that rate would clear-cut everything within miles in short order. They can't be importing it all on the trains.
>>
>>139777987
Spoilers confirm that he does get powers.

I'm thinking Ikoma going for the wrist was just a heat of the moment decision since he needed a blood trail for the kabane to follow. Ikoma seems to have a decent head on his shoulders, but he is very prone to following his emotions.
>>
>>139778173
For that matter, where are they mining all the coal from?

Unless the trains don't run on coal?
>>
>>13977817
There used to be trees there then they were cut down and made into the village on the same spot

Of course the MC is going to get powers, the PV shows him getting shot, most likely in the heart too.

Wow, it was obvious but it's still shit.

>>139777987
Of course they have super powers. How else are anime writers going to fill 11+ episodes of action? Name one action anime without super powers. You can't. There's always newtypes or lambda drivers or titans or geasses or nanomachines or something.

I just hope whatever it is will be implemented interestingly.

I just hope this doesn't become a bait episode where they make it interesting and good at the beginning to draw people in then shit up the series later on.

>>139778437
I heard it was called Re:Zero
>>
>>139778245
If you think that's bad...

Well, I mean, it's pretty obvious superloli is half-kabane or some shit. Probably also why she gets a pass on the whole stripcheck stuff. She's already kabane'd but resisted somehow.

>>139778489

I don't care about other people having powers, there was already some weird shit going on with the little girl when she got off the train.

But MC's already some kind of master arms smith, and then he gets powers? Come on, man.

Nice.

Reminds me of Las Plagas from Resident Evil 4. I don't want to get my hopes up, but this looks pretty good so far.

>>139778864
Probably because wood is more plentiful than steel and it's just there for observation and they're under constant guard.

Also it seems like people just get executed on the spot if they're suspected of infection anyway.

Because grorious ancient nippon.

Realistically, did you see how fast the virus was spreading on the people who actually got bitten? Real kabane hulk out well before they get to that thing. In reality, it's just a prison for the local lord to throw dissidents into.

Animation was choppy as hell and anyone who says it was "movie quality" is a newsht

The shading was incredibly inconsistent and looked tacky as hell

Writing is retarded and already has holes out the ass from the first episode

Characters are shit.

Far from the best anime this season.

The animation was great and wasn't anymore choopy then anything else this season.

The shading was great, and it wasn't inconsistent, it was just intensified during dramatic scenes to visually set the tone, very well done.

Nothing retarded about the writing either and there are no plot holes, probably just your own misconception having not actually payed attention to the show.

Characters are great so far especially the mc which is really the only one you can judge at this point.

Easily the best the season, you tsuntsun you

I figure the steam engine attached to it is some kind of steampunk magic thing that somehow works better than gold old fashioned gunpowder. Like a rail gun, but runs on water.

Oh thank god. An episode that isn't another perfunctory introduction with no aspirations other than establishing that some characters exist and what the gimmicks of the setting are. Not that it was handled deftly, mind you, what with people explaining to each other how things always happens and how we all know why they all happen and how common they are, but let's explain them in depth to each other anyway in case there's an invisible audience member who doesn't. And then there's the manic pixie girl, who fits into the show about as well as an elephant does into a teacup.

It's Guilty Crown/Geass's writer, so a little nonsense is to be expected, but I think this probably abused that a bit too much. I have my questions about how humanity has survived this long when apparently the trains are attacked constantly, and their security is so bad that when one is lost, the entire fortress is screwed. I'm also not really sure how strangling yourself makes the magic virus disappear. Oh, and little girls possess the strength to behead them, killing them instantly, but otherwise, you need to shoot them in the heart where they're strongest. Mostly, it's kind of just what you'd expect if you made a show from a Madlibesque combination of feudal Japanese steampunk zombie apocalypse. I don't think you should dig too deeply into anything it does. Lord knows the show doesn't, which helps things keep moving forward. And if I'm focusing on the nonsense of what it did and what it showed, it's because it did and showed things in ways that were not boring or obnoxious, and none of these were demands for it to try to explain them because that would just make things worse.

Last thread some anon reasoned that the virus kills itself if it's inhabiting what it perceives to be dead tissue, which is what the his body seemed like after oxygen starvation

It's the most logical explanation I've heard so far so that's what I'm going with

It makes even less sense than SnK and it clearly is very influenced by it. I was thinking not to take it seriously but the show takes itself seriously So ya I can't mark off inconsistencies or bad writing if the whole show is heading down this dark serious route.
>>
>>139780618
When it comes to super strong monsters that can infect you via blood you probably dont want to be up close hacking them to pieces. Also remains to be seen if the one that got decapitated at the end is really dead. Just a guess, maybe it's some kind of parasite that lives in and reinforces the chest cavity, but if the host brain is alive it can't take control of the body.
>>
>>139780614
That's the advantage of being very cliche. They can just focus on action, the good part, since you know the gist of the setting by instinct.

The girl probably didn't kill the zombie for good. It must be hard to move around without a head at least. She probably has super strength if you didn't notice her glowing eyes.

The virus is actually a parasite. It infects the host them promptly changes their body into a hospitable one. It moves to the heart and then encases the heart in strong tissue as to protect itself.

When Ikoma choked himself out and, the parasite couldn't spread as quickly, and quickly died.

It takes about 4 minutes for tissue to actually be deprived of oxygen though. He probably was about to pass out, however, and if it didn't perceive a viable brain to use because it didn't seem in good working order, then it didn't take hold.

Still though if it had taken hold in his body it shouldn't just instantly dissipate if it didn't get to the brain yet, you would think it would just wait there until he stopped choking. It could be something else, like he choked himself merely to try to halt its progress, same reason he put the armor on, and either the stone or his willpower repelled it (willpower would be a real asspull though).

Guess we'll see what is said about it in ep2.

He's saying a show needs more than art to be good.

It does look astoundingly good, but if the show itself isn't then that makes it all the worse actually because then it's a tragic waste of effort.

Couple things pointed out ad nauseum aside, I do think it's got potential, but it's also got potential to fall into all the shonen cliches and the AoT-wannabe shadow everyone is watching for.

It wasn't the most original first episode but it was a solid setup for what could potentially be an enjoyable series if they follow through.

So with this episode of their new anime. We can confirm that WIT is the real deal new studio and Trigger is a fake Denzel like the Allstate nigga studio?

Just saw the episode. Pretty fucking good. The voice acting, animation character designs are neat. The MC don't turning into a Kabemane in the end was bullshit through and also if i were Isayama i would be pissed as fuck cause this is a complete copy paste but with zombies

Literally: Shingeki no Kabaneri.

A fucking ripoff on AoT, as expected. The only thing that really stand out at the moment is the animation, but you all know that soon this will become in a QUALITY shitfest, is WIT studio after all.

Dropped before is to late, maybe I'll watch it when the BDs come out.
>>
>>139781833
It proves WIT has no wit, if you will, in terms of originality.

However they definitely seem to have a bigger budget and perhaps more ambition than Trigger, which jokes around with itself too much for its own good (well, let's see if they get serious with Kiznaiver).

The virus probably has a very short life cycle outside the original host until it reaches the infected person's brain tissue. Probably the brain has a particular cell that allows it to multiply or make it live longer and if it cant get to it fast enough, the virus basically burns itself out. Or maybe the hosts immune system starts fighting back or something.

It's good if you are unaware AoT exists.

Here though it's like comparing between two FPS games or capeshit movies from the same studios. Is this going to be better than AoT? Who knows. I think AoT had a more influential first episode though, I mean that shit was fucking everywhere with the now borderline-iconic "colossal peeking over the wall" shot.

Oxygen's a pretty good idea; He seals the wound, then stalls circulation in the body.

It does just shift the problem over though: Now it's a question of how did he survive the trauma involved. It looks like he might have had a guard on his trachea, but that doesn't jive with the blood.

The OP indicates the powers, you can see the red veins running through Mumei when she's about to fight, and the same same thing happens to Ikoma in the OP as well. They're the same veins that occur when Ikoma is being infected in his shack. 2+2= half zombie shenanigans.

Maybe they don't have gunpowder (or a recipe for producing lots of it) and explosives cost too much for typical guns to use them.

Not to mention gunpowder in particular happens to functionally work because it burns slowly enough to not just blow up the barrel of the weapon. If they have some explosive but it's not our idea of gunpowder it would just kaboom their guns.
>>
>>139783422
They must be pretty fucking stupid if they have explosives they can pack into bullets and they're still using pneumatic guns.

Also they better explain in detail that choking shit and why he stapled the thing to his arm. If it's just because that's what the character designer wanted him to look like, I'm going to be real disappointed.
>>
>>139783890
It looks like he almost planned for what would happen if he was bit. He knew exactly how he was going to slow down the infection (yes, he did apply pressure to his arm, which he also slapped a ton of metal on, but the main tourniquet was to his brain) so it seems like this was something he chose to do instead of cutting off his own arm.

>>139784333
I hope we have him lusting for flesh. Unfortunately, I can't imagine Kabaneri being as slap-happy goofy as Valvrave season 1. Whether that's a good thing or not we'll have to wait and see.
>>
>>139778084

Virus could be dependant on oxygen in the bloodstream

He is not only cutting off blood flow to the brain but also his ability to breath which would cause a CO2 build up which could possible suffocate the virus/bacteria/magic thing that caused the infection.

>>139783758

3 days jailed was just their SOP, anyone infected would of already used a Suicide Bag or the entire train would of been over run like what happened in the video. It was most likely just a policy used to deal with trouble makers or people that rubbed the officals in charge the wrong way for whatever reason, nothing really to do with the infection

>>139784051

Well if it was a virus and the virus was weakened enough his body could produce antibodies and he would become immune sort of like chicken pox
>>
I can't say much about the series because it's still one episode in, but I'll most likely stay for Mumei's legs.
>>
>>139785181
I feel like it needed that internal monologue clarifying what the fuck was going through his head. It happens so fast and it's so weird that I was just left confused.

So instead of saying
>I can't let it reach my brain
something like
>First step, cauterize. Oh shit, that didn't work.
>Second step, cut off blood flow. Crap, it's not stopping.
>Last resort, choking myself.

Maybe that'd ruin the tension of the scene, but I'd say it was ruined anyway because it was confusing and happened so fast there wasn't really time to build up suspense.

Dude, he riveted metal to his body, they either will or will not make up some idiotic bullshit about how this was a good idea, when there's no way from a real physiological perspective this makes sense. Most metals cannot be connected to human tissue because the body rejects and attacks it becoming necrotic around where it is attached. The exception is titanium which is the basis for modern body implants which these guys clearly don't have the tech to refine nor mine. No matter what, it's going to be stupid, so if you're taking a show like this too seriously you have no one to blame but yourself when you get "disappointed."

He invented not explosive but a rpg without the rocket component.
His gun shoots a propulsive jet or jet gas stream with help of explosions just like a rocket from RPG.
The stream is neither explosive or super hot but it practically "Wash out" the hard shell just like the real rpg explosion wash out armor of the tanks to penetrate it.

I think in terms of tension it was fine. We all knew he was going to come out fine since he's the main character, but the methodical yet brutal methods he used to stop the virus were less to make us worry about whether he was going to make it out and more to showcase his brutish tenacity to live while being also one of the most inquisitive and intelligent people in the show. The scene fit the established character quite well. That for him surviving the infection was like a trial by fire and in a more formal sense it's going to be the ordeal by which he acquires his cheesy MC skills.

It looks to me like the infection is a parasite. Perhaps a nano-machine style weapon that spreads according to a procedural pathway through the blood. After a set amount of time, it expects to plug into the brain and use the resources of the brain to execute its next part of the programming.

When it does not encounter a recognized brain signal, it shuts down.

I am thinking that whoever made this infection didn't want it infecting trees and animals, planning to wipe out cities of people and sending in troops to clean up after the fact.

Of course, it failed and now everyone lives in the glory of steam and trains.

It probably isn't, though.

Like this guy is smart, they could have had him use a bunch of steam-powered contraptions and shit. But no he caught retard strength from the zombies.
Well whatever.

>It's a virus that everyone should know about
People were taught that it's a curse, only MC and Takumi knows that it's bullshit.
>So instead of locking bittens in jail, why haven't they had a strangling system?
They obviously don't lock bittens in jail, considering how strong Corpses are, they would destroy it in no time. The Ryoumogawa probably knows what is happening and are locking people who knows too much or possible threats.
