>>139780150
There's a loli eroge that recently came out that features trains, apparently the writer or director is obsessed with them so there's all sorts of train nonsense in it.
Unfortunately it got picked up by Sekai Project so whenever a TL does come out EOPs will be stuck with censored garbage, if it's even readable.

I actually hate how they changed the protocol for the second train; remember for the first train, the train stopped before the bridge and then they lowered it.
But the second time they lowered it before the train stopped, a breach of protocol.

>but a virus that puts a steel cage around your heart is pretty bullshit in the first place.
This. Even if we accept the MC's assertion that it's actually a disease, there's still some not our universe stuff going on beyond you typical pop-culture zombie. Trying to pick that apart scientifically is fruitless.
>>
>>139785621
in that world? i'd say the on time train
>>
>>139788456
What's bullshit is not that he could stop it but that he seemed to know exactly what to do.
And if you have to stop it reaching the brain, why bother with riveting bits of metal to your arm and chest?
There was no explanation how he knew how to stop the infection. Pretty useful information to have considering that they have fucking suicide bags.
Did no-one think about doing research apart from him?
He was doing research but he was the only one, and it was shown that it was still preliminary and he was mostly doing weapons testing
>>
>>139788545

In the real world it's rare for a train to arrive on time, and unthinkable for it to be early.

>>139785621
Neither because they were expecting the Kotetsujo early after one of its stops got overrun

Wasn't it only twenty years? And it sounds like they've been steadily losing stations.

>>139785474
More egregious is the lack of civil engineering foresight in having your train line run straight through the walls into the heart of the station, rather than tangential to it along the walls where an outbreak could be contained.

Good point. I think I could accept "society is rigid" and "better safe than sorry" and the method is unreliable for why they aren't choking infected people in the field, but hopefully they'll explain how the MC knew just what to do.

He also cauterizes his arm for some reason. It's oddly specific all the stuff he does.

>>139788703
Well it certainly explains why stations get overrun all the time. It's not because the zombies are dangerous but because their security designs are laughably bad.
But I guess that's what a noble system does- the people in control seem to be in control due to their birth rather than because they're smart, or responsible.
You'd think a little foresight in that even if you don't care about the plebs you should have them follow better security if for no other reason that it stops zombies attacking you.

I'm generally not a fan of 'everyone is stupid apart from the MC' plots.
Especially ones that give the MC mystical knowledge that no-one else has, like how to render suicide bags obsolete.
Kinda makes the suicide bag scenes meaningless if there's a kid running around that knows how to get away with not needing one
>>
>>139788778
He probably cauterized so the infection in the wound would be gone and would only need to worry about what was already in his body.

If choking himself worked and he didn't get rid of the wound it would have just infected him again.
>>
>>139788840
It's the fat, dumb nobleman trope.
>Bad things don't happen to me because I'm important
>>
>>139788778
All the stuff he does is based on hypotheses to stop the infection from spreading

>cauterize wound for sterilization
oh shit that didn't work it's already spreading
>rivet zombie cure into arm to look like a badass but takes a few seconds to stop the spread
fuck yeah that's metal
>hang self to get some bitching white hair because you're out of hair dye and get off while the cure takes effect
And that's how you stop the kabane curse.
>>
>>139788840
I think the scene where he tries to stop the bushi from executing the guy even when they weren't supposed to is trying to show that most of society just wants the safe and secure route regardless. It also seems like society is run by the bushi and probably not conducive to research. Then again other stations may be different. And I wouldn't say it reneders the bags obsolete if you basically have to be right there in a machine shop when it happens. That process was still the weirdest thing.
>>
>>139788977
Watch closely and you can see that the infection spreads all the way to his neck, then after choking, it just retracts all the way back.

Zombie movies without any basic understanding of how blood transmits pathogens (or magic zombie curses) is not fun.
>>
>infection manifests itself within seconds

They have to be literally retarded to not be able to tell that someone isn't infected just by looking at the wound when they immediately get purple skin and glowing veins
>>
This is the best anime I've ever seen and I've seen my fair share of full length animes.

That battle is already lost given the metal heart cages. This is not a "realistic" zombie infection.
>>
The only solution that would have made sense would be putting the gun up to his shoulder and blowing his arm off the moment he saw the infection.
>>
This girl is delicious. Can't wait for R-18 fanart.

>>139789054
But having a society that paranoid about security they sure don't put much thought or effort into security.

>>139789139
I figured, but surely it would have him when it reaches his heart, right?
>>
All the anitwitter sakugafags hate it already, so that makes it ok in my book.
>>
>>139789149
The solution that makes sense is the one that doesn't leave him crippled. Someone that knows jackshit about the Kabane would take the easy path aka chopping the arm off.
>>
Why didn't they just weaponize suicide bags
>>
>>139789193
No idea. It certainly seems that the brain is involved somehow too. Maybe the infection needs the brain to command the body but the heart can somehow regenerate the body including the head?
>>
>>139789268
They seem to be designed so you use them before the infection armors the heart. They probably wont work on a full Kabane.
>>
If headshots and decapitation are guaranteed kills (or seem to be, considering Mumei's fight) against these monsters, then why is he focused on the heart?
>>
>>139789352
Decapitation probably just temporarily disables them.
>>
>>139789329
A better question about suicide bags is; if they can make gunpowder (explosives they call it), why don't they have gunpowder weapons?
They'd be more powerful than the steam ones.

The bit that seemed to finally stop it was cutting off any circulation to the brain.

I'm sure we'll find out more as the series goes on, but if I had to guess it's that the parasyte either can't survive long in the human body and so it has to reach the brain quickly or it's that it won't infect a brain dead person.

To be fair civil engineering oversights of this nature happen all the time too; if you have no central planning authority and things just organize organically (which characterizes a feudal system on the cusp of industrial revolution pretty perfectly), you'll have tons of failures like this; so it's a more forgivable/justifiable kind of stupid at least, compared to say a science fiction show where you would expect societies to know better.

The thing is in the real world we didn't have to deal with zombie outbreaks testing the boundaries of our civil engineering projects, just mundane accidents like >>139788821

No. But it does, along with all the sweatdrops, make people look shinier in comparison to normal anime style which is what anon asked about.

How? The entire show is written to make him look smart by making everyone else look like an idiot. But he's still a giant moron.

And the MCs weapon right now is just a prototype that only works stationary. Its not portable.

Of course there were black powder firearms, but until discovery of smokeless gunpowder they were mostly ineffective.

The most "effective" black powder firearms were Chinese rockets with arrows attached to them, or slave one shot rifles that essentially acted as shotguns.

They should check EVERY train, regardless of the time of the arrival before letting it into the city. No wonder they are consistently losing stations this way.

This is worse though- it means that it's STANDARD PROCEDURE to just let the train in without stopping first.
All these dumb security failings make you wonder how there are any towns left at all, but at least it explains how they keep falling so quick, they're full of idiots.

Well in the first episode a train filled with zombies explodes in the middle of town and they run around killing everyone. The MC gets bitten and has to hang himself so the infection doesn't reach his brain. He does survive though, he just has to hang himself long enough for the infection to disappear. So a bit darker than AoT maybe

They're super strong. If you don't shoot them off your train they'll eventually break in and start biting.
The shitty steam guns they have for no reason can't kill them, either.
Not like they don't have gunpowder. The suicide bag works with explosives, and the MC talks about explosives in his experimental gun. Or lack the ability to make early-20th century era rifles.
They could make mosin nagant style rifles and that would work against steel.
The steam guns exist for no reason other than to make the zombies seem stronger.

I'll never understand how you people even breathe. It was completely obvious that he was just trying every random thing he could think of to stop the infection, not that he had magical knowledge. Any thinking person would immediately try cauterization and tourniquets to stop the spread of a fleshbourne infection, it's not fucking rocket science. The metal rivets thing was stupid, he should have tried to amputate instead, but even then it's easy to see why he wouldn't.

If you're going to pick at something, try the retardedness of using steam for everything, or the massive security holes in the train stations, or whatever. God damn.

Or maybe it's not trying to portray it as black and white. It's doing the classic "upper class detatched from the working class" thing, which portays people as both deserving and undeserving of what they get.

Everyone is so obsessed with running away that they never actually bothered to create defensive measures that work.

How do you even know what the MAL score is?

>never actually bothered to create defensive measures that work.

The station only fell because dumbass lowered the drawbridge without confirming the train was alright.
>>
>>139794361
I bet his gun could've done pretty well. It is supposed to go through bone after all
>>
>>139793105
Ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
>>
>>139794436
They lowered the drawbridge because the train wasn't stopping.
You have to assume that this was standard practice, and the 'train arriving early' is why the drawbridge wasn't raised, even though early trains should be fairly common in a world where stations end up falling regularly.
>>
>>139794077
If we take the rivets off, will he die?
>>
>>139794428
When you add something to Taiga you're kind of forced to see that. MAL is absolute shit but it's at least useful for keeping track of what you've watched, if you use a third-party program.
>>
>>139794436
The zombies can climb up moving trains. If a random zombie wanted over that wall it was getting over. The only way to stop it would to have guards shooting at it 24 hours a day until it finally gives up and leaves
>>
>>139794331
I really hoped he would cut off his arm and have him one armed for the rest of the show.
>>
>>139794428
There are people on /a/ that go to check MAL opinion to decide if they like something or not.
>>
>>139794361
So he didn't have a saw or suicide bag, or steel-peircing gun, or sharp knife anywhere, but he did have a piece of thick steel exactly shaped like his torso, a strangulation machine, like 50 belts, and his own personal steam riveting machine

Sure

You're the cancer. Just as cancerous as MAL. Try to deny it.
>>
>>139794463
>You have to assume that this was standard practice

in the beginning of the episode we see the first train come to a halt before the bridge is lowered.

>>139794491
the zombies die if you get a head shot you know, and the wall is amnned by a heap of guys with guns.
>>
>>139794503
Even better, a steampunk artificial arm. Perhaps one with a gun on it, or a chainsaw.

>>139794489

How is this fag leaping and shit with huge hunks of metal and bolts on his arm and lower back?
>>
>>139794541
>in the beginning of the episode we see the first train come to a halt before the bridge is lowered.
This was the 'arrived early' train. While perhaps not a good excuse, it's a reasonable reason why the bridge would have been up when the train was there- they weren't expected so no-one was manning the bridge, for example.
>>
>>139794167

But that way he wouldn't be Eren 2.0 so we can't have that.
>>
>>139794406
>that's just you buddy.
That's conjecture, I never said my stance, only pointed out that the show isn't trying to paint the humans as pure little lambs.

>>139794393
Touche. I guess this is pretty obviously one of the big shitposting shows of the season.
>>
>>139794564

Well I dunno, maybe because he's a carrier of the virus and it gave him zombie strength and abilities?
>>
>>139794515
he was a tinkerer, he had a bunch of random crap lying around. he obviously jury rigged a solution. Also keep in mind he is in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and people who lose their arms die of blood loss pretty quickly without medical attention.
>>
>>139794503
>>139794554
One armed Ash Williams style would be fine, no steampunk arms please.
>>
Obvious Snk copy. Dropped hard. You faggots will hate it after a few episodes anyway, once it becomes mainstream
>>
>>139794533
When you watch 30 shows in a season because you just enjoy watching anime, it's useful to know where you are in everything. It's also good to know if you watched something in the past, and keeping a text file up-to-date is too much of a bother.
>>
>>139794554
>a steampunk artificial arm
>even better
But that's literally what every other anime do.
Killing zombies with only one arm would be cool.
>>
>>139794596
and it sure isn't trying to paint them as people who deserve to die.
>>
>>139794604
But people who rivet thick pieces of steel to themselves survive just fine. Pretty good for a tinkerer with no cutting implements.

well yeah, as long he he didn't hit like a major artery he wouldn't die immediately at least.
>>
>>139794541
If zombies died from guns he wouldn't need to create a special gun that needs to specifically target the heart.
>>
>>139794641
Right, so it's not black and white. Good to know we're on the same page.
>>
>>139794680
But with all the belts he had, something to stem the blood loss, like a belt would not be available.
He was literally covered in belts dude

usually when that happens in movies or whatever it's someone else who puts the pressure on, since if you don't pass out from cutting a limb off, putting pressure on the wound will.
>>
>>139779811
I mean, the series literally has a trainwreck.
>>
>>139794721
My biggest complaint is not that it worked, or that he managed to rig a machine to strangle himself while masturbating, but that there was no setup as to why he thought it would work. Even if the reason was complete shit, like him seeing someone else turn and mentally noting how the process happens.
They tease that he was doing zombie research, but they concentrated on weapons development in a 'how to kill them' way, not a 'how do they develop' kind of way.
It's also silly how he's literally the only one who sees that researching the zombies would be useful.
>>
Will this show reduce Mayoiga shitposting?
>>
>>139794750
But riveting steel to himself without passing out, and then building a machine that can asphyxiate him without pulling his head off without passing out; completely fine.
His tolerance for pain is sky-high since he's the MC.
>>
>>139794710
Can you remember perfectly everything you've eaten in the entire past week? Well, I can't. Keeping track of things you've done is useful if you don't trust your own memory.
MAL is terrible as you know and the only thing from it that's any useful is the list. I'll never ever touch the forums or reviews or whatever else they have holy fuck.

you don't seem to grasp how big a step up it is to go from getting stabbed to someone ripping off your freaking arm. I know limb loss is pretty normal in anime but it's still a cut way above normal injuries.

It seems to emit some sort of glowing ember in the body, so perhaps by cutting off the oxygen in his body the virus became starved and died like a fire?

I don't know, having fun watching all kinds of anime seems to be a pretty good standard. More people should try doing it instead of only picking 3 shows in a season, hating them all and saying that the industry is dying, you never know when there's a gem buried far under the sea.

If you know anything about bullets you'll know that complaining about lead is fucking retarded.
Just tip the thing with steel.

And if you missed the other big plot element which was the MC's prototype gun, he was lacking velocity, not AP ammo. Guess what would have added velocity; that's right, gunpowder weapons.

No you just like to watch shit

they said lead not lead and gunpowder
lead's the only thing you can shoot with shitty gunpowder and no rifling
like anon said their gun development is stunted because they went full on steam for the sake of trains
>>
>>139795151
Fuedal? This is meiji japan technology dude. IE: 1890-1900. Guess when the mosin nagant was made.

Anyway, riveting is a more recent technology than the mosin. Back then things were screwed, nuts and bolts, together. Riveting was an invention that happened more or less after ww1.
>>
>>139795165
Gonna be the same as the main character.
>>
>>139795200
Have you seen the fidelity of their tools? They have 1900 era technology. They can make rifled barrels.
Steam engines stopped being used in 1950, not 1850.

it's not following real history, you can't complain that things weren't developed in the right order in a show that doesn't take place in real history. the technological level is whatever they ant it to be.

Huh. Thats just dumb enough that it might be true. Good thinking anon.

the bushi are literally using lead bullets
stop trying to frodo it anon, the world is just technologically different
eat the steampunk or watch something else

I'm basing my judgement based on the level of technological fidelity to build various things.
Riveting in particular shows that they have the fidelity to make a mosin.

The way he stopped the infection might not make a huge amount of sense but the real question is why was the spread of infection in him so rapid to the other two people we saw infected?

>>139795292
weapons development has taken a different path, towards steam. it's not the ability but the knowledge.

I guess I wasn't using my brain very well but I thought based on the subtitles that they were implying they used steam to propel the lead projectiles, otherwise it'd make no sense why they wouldn't just use gunpowder weapons.

Yes they are using steam to push projectiles. The MC complains in his own steam gun development that it can't pierce zombie hearts which as tough as steel plate.
But they use gunpowder in the suicide bags, and the MC uses 'explosives' in his prototype gun.

So they can make guns, and they can make gunpowder, but they never put the two together.

Shouldn't they have some kind of precaution to make sure that trains are not infected before entering? I mean holy fuck, the chances of such an event are far too high to take the risk. It's stupid that they just lower the bridge the moment they see a train coming. They could at least leave the bridge up first, check the train, and then let it in. Holy fuck I hate dumb writing.

So how exactly did he cure himself of the highly infectious virus by taking a bolt gun to his shoulder and lateral muscles and then crushing his larynx? The implication from their stated protocols earlier in the episode was that the virus would incubate over the course of several days.

I wonder where this will go. So far, a srict traditionalist society (something the Japanese love the fuck out of) is presented in a bad way, and it seems the scriptwriter is aware they are presenting it in a bad way. Now, will it be the critique up to the end or move towards acceptance?
