>chokes self long enough for blood to stop flowing into his head
>didn't immediately pass out
suspension of belief gone right there. dropped
You've got zombies with steel caged hearts. I think expecting any form of realism went out the window a while ago.
Another anon worked out that the reason his cure worked was because the zombies are some kind of steam engine with internal combustion or some shit, which causes the burning veins. By shutting off the flow of oxygen, the virus died back like extinguishing a fire.
I really like the MC's voice
and his glasses
>xDD u have this and this and u want realism lol?! xD
Just fucking kill yourself
Each and everyone who says
>This anime has X so don't expect any realism
Fucking kill yourselves. Rule number 1 for an author is in order to get your readers to buy into fictional elements like Dragons, Zombies, etc. you FIRST HAVE TO GET THE THINGS THAT ACTUALLY EXIST RIGHT.
THIS IS HOW YOUR WRITE AN IMMERSIVE, AUTHENTIC STORY.
The "hurr durr it has these and these fictional elements so dont expect anything" argument is complete and utter shit. WORTHLESS
>tfw he voiced Ushio a couple of seasons ago
>tfw this season he has two main roles in two shows I've picked up including Ushio to Tora 2nd season
He really does the passionate young guy voice well.
Time for another thread full of meaningless nitpicking at things that can be explained
Just stop watching non-SoL anime altogether. Compared to this, do you think all the "beating the one in a million chance odds" are more realistic, if it's truly in a million chance in the first place?
Let's be honest, it looks good but it's dumb as fuck. And that's after just one episode.
In 3 episodes it's going to be a complete trainwreck.
That's not how shoes work
>>139798970 This is belieavable
>>139798764 This isn't. It looks like some ice skating shit. Have you tried constantly balancing on that shit? It's hard and impractical as fuck to use it to cut of heads.
it's the writer, he can do whatever he wants with the story and lore, if he writes " a virus which stops by shutting the oxygen flow " you either like it or not,
>you FIRST HAVE TO GET THE THINGS THAT ACTUALLY EXIST RIGHT
like what ?
Why the fuck was that soldier even running away?
They only put you in prison for 3 days. If he really wasn't infected there was absolutely no reason to act like this.
>you FIRST HAVE TO GET THE THINGS THAT ACTUALLY EXIST RIGHT
No, it's a fictional universe, just because similar stuff exist in our universe, it doesn't mean the fictional universe's ones have to operate under the same rules.
>No, it's a fictional universe, just because similar stuff exist in our universe, it doesn't mean the fictional universe's ones have to operate under the same rules.
This series looks great and since i never watched SnK I can judge it without having to compare the shows and just watch it for what it is. And from the first episode it looks really promising, the design is really cool and i like this mix of old Japan-Steampunk universe. The only fear I have is that it will be too overhyped like One Punch Man.
>FIRST HAVE TO GET THE THINGS THAT ACTUALLY EXIST RIGHT
No, fuck off. The inclusion of fantasy elements in the first place means that natural laws do not apply. Want huge dragons? Say goodbye to the square-cube law.
Why the fuck would they have just one layer of walls?
Why wasn't the station and quarantine area separate from the main populated area?
Why were their security procedures complete garbage?
>They only put you in prison for 3 days. If he really wasn't infected there was absolutely no reason to act like this
it's what show tries to tell with "fear can make humans do anything"
They didn't build those cities after the zombies broke out.
The cities are old train stations. And you can't get out and collect material to build shit because you would get eaten alive.
>They lower the bridge without checking the train
Why didn't they make the train stop, check if there's any kabane and then lower the bridge?
Can you stop?
Why not just make extremely powerful hosepipes and water them the fuck down?
>Babby's first anime was SnK
You sound like you literally have only watched SnK anon. Go watch more before you start thinking everything is a ripoff of your beloved first anime.
>Maybe next time you will be able to know as much as me
you're delusional and retarded, i'm not even the same guy who you were arguing with before either
>Kaiketsu Jouki Tanteidan
And ' hot zombies and MC shouting like hell ' aren't exclusive to SnK. Go watch any edgy shounen or seinen and you'll see the MC ' Shouting like hell '
People have been jumping the gun on calling this a trainwreck before it even started, but I don't think what's happened so far -nor the spoilers- really supports that statement. Not truly.
>apocalypse happened and most of mankind went extinct by a viral infection carried by the undead
>only isolated settlements remain
>the settlement the MC is in falls in the beginning of the story
>he's the only one to be able fight back
>same animation style
>same shitty color filters
>very similar soundtrack
>that steam engine thing on people's backs looks identical to the 3D maneuvering gear from SnK
But I'll still watch it, because the girls in it are cute. I've watch far shittier shows for the girls.
>with shitty shouting MC
>with steam shit
>inside a wall
>implying either steamboy or Kaiketsu Jouki Tanteidan is all those thing
You must be more idiotic then I thought.
Why would they need layers of walls when there's a moat?
Because the station needs to be connected to the populated areas, given people aren't living in the countryside anymore.
Because even Homeland Security and the FTA suck.
>They only put you in prison for 3 days. If he really wasn't infected there was absolutely no reason to act like this.
Do you watch the episode looking at the subtitles? The MC tried to stop the soldiers because they were not going to follow the rules and shoot him right there.
Are you one of those sad guys who shit on SnK because it's popular? Yes, it is good. Just because there are better shows out there it doesn't mean that SnK isn't enjoyable to watch.
>hot zombies despite SnK having none, is an intellectual property of SnK
>Aparrently walls too
>shouting MCs too
I'm the one surprised at how idiotic you are, despite your horrid taste in anime.
You probably didn't realize that the shows I mentioned had the same ' steam weapons ' and live in a steampunk era. But given how SnK is your first anime, I probably doubt you'd know that.
>Discussing realism in anime
You guys, really, really never cease to amaze me.
I enjoyed the episode, too bad you fuckers can't enjoy anything because of your autism.
>No shit, did you miss the zombie's head flying like a soccer ball? Can your sister do that?
>Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
>the Kabaneri are OUTSIDE the Iron Fortress
>the entire point of the Iron Fortress, whether it's the town or the train, is to keep the Kabaneri out
The English title is even worse than SnK's
If the virus spread that fast on Ikoma, why even bother to put potential infected for 3 days in prison?
If kabane can jump pretty high, why didn't they build higher walls?
If kabane attracted to blood, why don't they just make artificial pools of blood outside of their safe area?
Why do those japs keep doing this shit? Why do they keep making obvious as fuck copy-tweak-pastes?
>artificial pools of blood outside of their safe area?
WOW, that's some dark shit
>mfw I enjoy the first episode but still unleash my autism on /a/ because discussing plot hole in a show is actually fun
>If the virus spread that fast on Ikoma, why even bother to put potential infected for 3 days in prison?
Fearmongering and power abuse, clearly.
>If kabane can jump pretty high, why didn't they build higher walls?
They didn't seem to be able to get over the wall. They got in through the train crash, and the walls wouldn't have stopped it.
>If kabane attracted to blood, why don't they just make artificial pools of blood outside of their safe area?
Faggot, this isn't Evangelion. You can't keep a large pool of blood in a place for any reasonable amount of time without permanently bleeding people there.
Do you guys seriously not understand the premise of the show?
Everyone is retarded except the MC, who can see through the lies with his mighty fedora. That's why no one can tell the difference between a zombie and a human except him.
NO ONE understands anything about anything logical, and no one ever will until he enlightens them with science and bacon and narwhals.
>titans are hot and they are giant zombies
>giant walls surrounding city while the 'zombies' are outside
>shouting MC because someone he loves dies when he was a kid and he then vows revenge and shit
>using steam like weapons to fight monsters
>all of that in an anime at the same time
>not SnK ripoff
You are idiotic. If you don't even get that maybe you should just top posting.
You are responding to bait. Or maybe YOU are the bait.
>You can't keep a large pool of blood in a place for any reasonable amount of time without permanently bleeding people there.
They can just make people donate blood in case of emergency like this.
A lot of people can parkour like that and they aren't anything close to a super athlete. Maybe next you're going to tell me that they can have the same power as the zombies. Oh shit, another reason for it to be a SnK ripoff.
>Titans are now zombies just because they appear skinless when they transform
>Walls, despite them being a normal defense measure ever since medieval ages, is a SnK only thing right now
>Shouting MCs because their loved ones died is a SnK only thing as well because I have only watched SnK so fuck you
>Steam weapons are SnK only things too despite the 2 shows I mentioned at the top of my head on my first post
You also do realize that the rest of the show they're going to be on a train right?
Maybe you should stop posting yourself and go rewatch your beloved SnK.
calm down people, i'm here to save this thread.
>all of those elements in the same anime
Maybe you're just ignoring this statement or something or maybe you're just stupid but as I said a few times already, Steamboy and Kaiketsu Jouki Tanteidan doesn't have hot zombies, giant wall and shouting Mc for revenge shit. So, yes you are idiotic.
>Unironically believing titans are zombies
Oh god, I'm fucking out. I give up. I might have been had from the beginning.
Literally fuck you.
>A decaying corpse that feeds on humans is the same thing as a giant man that eats people and can even harden his skin.
Just watched it.
I don't get you guys saying it's a full-on Attack on Titan ripoff. The only thing the same about it is that there are creatures outside of cities that are not even the same as titans. That's it.
Only thing I didn't like was as always, the main character shouts like no tomorrow. I wonder if the director knows it can kill the VAs throat with that much hoarseness all the time.
Add to this same director, same studio, same compositor, even when the PV came out the first thing people pointed out was how similar it looked to SnK
The people behind this project are clearly after the SnK crowd and its success, it's beyond me how someone can deny it.
Promptly kill yourself and go back to where you came from.
>You even don't know that this piece of crap was made by same director and same studio.
>Newfag pls go.
I really, really like how I'm getting more traditional Chinese vibes from the clothes and aesthetic and shit rather then Japanese ones. Streampunk + Chinese is something I don't think I've seen before because its such a strange match-up, but its actually really cool in practice. I hope they elaborate how he managed to survive because although it was a badass scene, nobody really has any idea why he did what he did, and more importantly, that it worked.
torrenters like to believe they're risking their necks to watch anime, so when they encounter someone who doesn't take the same risk, they get fluff their feathers and strut around about how bad you are
Woah, so you're telling me zombies are the same thing as a werewolf? Or a merman? Or Cthulhu?
Wow, nice fanbase.
>Yes, your quality of posts prove just how detrimental streamfags are to /a/.
sorry i will post "face pic" next time from a torrent one....ah ..if that will make me true /a/ anon...i-i..I'M WILLING TO DO ANYTHING
Only newfags greentext a whole post. Lurk forever before posting.
can someone please explain,because i may be retarded or too stupid for the japanese:
>use belt to apply presssure to the wound with a hot metal so that it ownt slip

>all these all lowercase posts
What the fuck?
Are we being raided?
>Why should I download when I can just stream?
What is it specifically about this show that has triggered all the autists, pedants and swots so much they're complaining about plot holes before they even know that much about the world and story?
I think that, for all the talk of it not being a curse, there is a supernatural element to the infection, at least in that it does not behave in accordance with physics (and I use the term broadly) as we understand it; the infection is way to fast, for one, no even getting into the steam zombie stuff.
That said, just because it's magic DOES NOT mean it cannot make sense; the best sci-fi/fantasy works are the ones that set rules and then tell a story around them.
We haven't seen any rules yet. Maybe consider not shitting on it until you know what's going on.
ON THE TOPIC OF TRAIN STOPS
All the calls to make the trains stop outside the walls aren't nearly as much of a common-sense solution as some people seem to think they are. The problem, in large part, is the homicidal steam zombies outside the city.
Now, consider that KabAIDS does not seem to give the steam zombies neither super long legs, nor jump units, jetpacks, or any other method of moving generally unlike a human body.
There are some mechanical problems with making a human body move at high-quality steam train speeds; while not impossible, it is going to be much more difficult for the zombies to attack a train moving at speed compared to a stationary one. And assuming the zombies respond to stimuli, it is likely that there may be a pack of them trailing the train. That won't be a problem if they can't catch up to the train and it stops behind the walls, but if you slow the train below what it necessary brake in the station or to a stop, suddenly those zombies catch up, and you've created a problem where you had none.
The LOGICAL thing to do would be to have an smaller enclosure in the walls, a sort of inverted ravelin or demilune, prehaps elongated for easy braking, but fortified to resist further zombie assaults if a train is compromised. The train stops, people get off, and then they're let into the city proper after inspection. The train can then advance through a second gate to the maintenance yards proper, kept seperate so you don't lose your engineers and hardware to a failure.
Nah the zombies are better, they get smarter and smarter by mimicking human behavior.
Like that one zombie copied the girl pointing, or the one that attacked the MC used a sword, immediately more interesting to watch then the retarded titans.
Regardless it's poor writing. MC just happened to be the only one in that entire universe to figure out stopping bloodflow virtually eliminates the virus
You all SnKfags here show how much your brain capacity are. No one really deny Kabaneri and SnK similarity, but it's not because Kabaneri ripping off from SnK (even if it basicaly is what the staff are doing), it's because SnK isn't the ultimate original itself.
He probably isn't the only one you fucking idiot.
He's the only one in his community to be studying the kabane organs for 5 years maybe, but there are probably other characters who also studied and understand them that we haven't met yet.
Quit shit posting
Everybody with a working brain dropped SnK ages ago when it became shit.
But denying that Kabaneri is to SnK what Rahxephon was to EVA is just stupid.
They want Titan $ and that undeniable.
People overuse the word 'exactly'. Even a straight rip-off wouldn't be exactly similar to the original, and this isn't really a rip-off since it focuses much more on the steampunk technology and epidemic aspects.
That's not the point, purist-kun. SnK was the latest cashcow and the studio does everything to copy that. Because it worked recently. The original source of everything that is SnK is irrelevant.
I got the impression the 'Bushi' are hibernating the virus. "Ask your burning blood". Cue some plotline about the Bushi hiding key information from the population to preserve order and their power.
Just saw it, and fuck was it fun and nice to look at. MC was quite alright too. Hot-blooded but smart. AotS if it the MC gets the qt ribbon girl at the end.
Most of your faggots seems to have forgotten why you watch anime to begin with. Go and find another hobby.
>MC just happened to be the only one in that entire universe to figure out stopping bloodflow virtually eliminates the virus
that "MC just happend to be X "part is in the all animes man.
It's pretty easy to get a message across anon.
Why haven't there been blood restriction systems implemented already? Because either an antagonist has also found out, or it's shit writing because MC is an ultra snowflake
>MC just happened to be the only one in that entire universe to figure out stopping bloodflow virtually eliminates the virus
You could say that about most of scientific stuff. Really sad humanity is this dumb.
Why don't they just make gunpowder-based weapons? It would pierce kabane heart easily.
That example is arguable, Evangelion have reputation of being classic and original.
I don't remember every single show, but if there exist an older series about the last group of human wandering off in spaceship fortress strugle to survive from swarming alien attacks, one can says that SnK a is rip off that show, but with different setting so no one realized it.
tl;dr, to all SnKfags, SnK is shit, get over it.
It was though. Well not her voice really. It was the composition itself.
I don't know if it was just the shortened cuts in the music or whatever, but I didn't like it. I'll wait for the full version, because as of now it's just meh.
I watched around 10 shows from this season, and this is the only show I want to continue with episode 2 for. You would think you little faggots would grow tired of LN beta harem shit, and enjoy some edgy anime. But whatever, is the most popular show this season, of course you have to hate it.
People excusing the virus part are laughable. OP is right, he should have passed out and the virus off. I can already see people saying it was halted for now but will come back later on.
Other problems with this method include this:
Well, the blood loss would be at least one; having a hole in your heat is bad, and opening enough blood vessels in your arm to purge.
Introducing high temperature steam to your chest; enjoy scalding burns on the entire inside of your thoracic cavity. If that doesn't kill you, the sudden over-pressure in the heat probably will.
On the thermal note, you'll also raise your core body temperature quite a bit, as well as fill the air with water vapor; that might cause you to die of heat stroke, which is technically a different mechanism than massive internal burning.
There are major problems with the show and the people excusing these problems seriously need to ask themselves "would a good show need this level of defence or would the show itself be enough"?
Not one single retort of anything I posted. I will continue to wait.
Is fucking anime. Sometimes I wonder how faggots like you can enjoy anything at all. If you want to analyze moving cartoons to the degree of trying to have it held on the same natural laws that governs our reality, you will always find flaws in every fucking anime in existent.
Why the MC survived from turning to a zombie, the answer is serviceable. Sit back and try, try to enjoy something?
I just don't think shit like this even counts as a minor flaw. I have a degree in Physics. Do you want me to go around to every sci-fi thread telling you step by step why practically everything that occurs in anime like that involving space travel is completely impractical or otherwise impossible? Of course not. It just doesn't matter, because the purpose of fiction is to enjoy a tale, not to present a fucking thesis. Anime often start off with basically ludicrous concepts, and some parts might later be rationalized by the scriptwriter but usually that just adds unnecessary padding.
It doesn't happen instantly you dumb fuck.
Fighter pilots pull so many fucking G's the blood pours out of their heads it's called a grey out.
You can maintain consciousness for a few seconds without blood to your head.
Ｗ Ｏ Ｗ
Amusing. The people who are defending this and using ancient medical practices to treat virues are the one injecting real world medical knowledge the show. So if they can do that, I can inject all the problems with the scene myself.
It is only fair. Yes I can enjoy a scene and throw my suspension of belief but only to a extent if I feel it doesn't bother me. The mc should have or been in extreme pain but that wasn't the case was it? Do you honestly think the average viewer wouldn't be shaking their at this shit?
>If you want to analyze moving cartoons to the degree of trying to have it held on the same natural laws that governs our reality, you will always find flaws in every fucking anime in existent.
That's wrong though. Even many LN haremshits get basic mechanical shit right. It's when magic and superpowers appear that they shit on reality.
In Hidan no Aria MC was using a single stock handgun because her hands were tiny. In fucking Hidan no Aria.
I see they're taking inspiration from FSN as well.
>Why are there things not answered at the start of a series?
He didn't turn into a zombie because he squashed his carotid artery. There was some flimflam earlier in the episode about the carotid artery of zombies being thicker or tougher
So the solution is auto erotic asphyxiation.
It's not about the signal but about how bad careless they were
In a world full of zombies one would think they would be more careful to avoid them slipping through.
Like making all the trains stop before entering the station, check if there's any infected, then lower the bridge and let them in.
Imagine if the train was safe but the kabanes where hiding between/on/under the carriages. It would have also been a disaster for the train station
No, letting the train into the city before checking it for super powerful zombies that you don't have the weapons to kill is clearly the right thing to do.
I think about it like this; sure explains why stations were falling all the damn time
Because he studied zombies of course. Remember the body parts he was collecting?
Clearly choking is the answer. But that's only after riveting some steel to your torso and wrapping your arm in belts
He doesn't even have to buy the BDs like everyone else is gonna have to to see the bigger shot.
Damn how many fucking threads will you people make?
At least the show is good at drawing attention, but besides that it's clearly Aots, it literally has no competition cause jojo pt 4 sucks ass.
>Imagine if the train was safe but the kabanes where hiding between/on/under the carriages.
That's when I thought the zombie attack was going to happen, when they were inspecting the underside of the train, instead of the 2 retards pulling down the bridge before they could confirm if the train was taken over or not.
Yeah, I had a real hard time reasoning out why their city didn't have some sort of defence in depth system, especially given the moat. It's not even a matter of space for the people living there, as they are shown to have build up onto a seemingly man-made hill.
Just accept these faggots will try to question everything even though the answer is right in front of them, don´t waste your time mate. Next they ask why there´s a lack of straight exposition episode.
Story like this one, or similar ones like Muv-Luv or Jurassic World work only when people in the show are complete morons.
They need to be retards so plot can start moving.
If it was a story about a city successfully protecting itself from demonic zombie hordes the underage edgy SnK audience wouldn't watch it.
If they bothered to explain anything like the setting, character motivations and back stories or even what the enemy are then maybe just maybe all these criticisms wouldn't spring up.
