I have a simple question that someone has probably brought up.
When they bit that guys arm, what stopped them from simply amputating his arm before it spread? I mean, the spread is highly visible.
>>
>>139811326
The general public believes it's a curse not a disease so they wouldn't try that
>>
>>139811326
Probably them panicking. It looked like a pretty stresfull situation so they probably followed the regular protocol.
On the other hand it might have something to do with them thinking its a curse and not a virus.
>>
>>139811326
>When they bit that guys arm, what stopped them from simply amputating his arm before it spread?
They think it is a curse. There is no point in chopping his arm if they are going to kill him anyway because of fear.
Also when you are busy running away from zombies, maybe dealing with cripples is not best thing, especially if they can't fight.
>>
I'm going to watch this and the CGI train in the trailers threw me the fuck off

is that the only case of CGI?
>>
1. Edgelord garbage that pretends to be serious but uses retarded logic. Example: When someone gets bitten he is forced to kill himself with other people holding a gun at him practically forcing him to do it!, whilst yelling "Do it for honor man". How in the fuck is it honorable to kill yourself if you're being forced to do it? It's not noble if you're forced.


2. No one in the show decides to just cut the arm and stop the infection before it spreads; but instead stare at the guy and start going full panic mode.


3. The setting has been proven illogical right away when it shows people getting inspected by bite marks. Something that happens AFTER THE TRAIN ENTERS THE CITY! How are these people still alive?

4. To add on to the previous point. What would be the reason to inspect the people when it is prevalent in the finale scene of the show and the first scene of the show that it only takes like a minute for you to become a zombie? Any infected person would go crazy by the time it takes for you to get undressed and inspected.

5. To make it even more confusing, all side characters state how it takes 3 days to become a zombie when it clearly, nearly took over the protagonist in a minute and various other people. Oh my lord!
>>
6. The excuse for the protagonist to hate the adults is also dumb. It is stated that "Those suspected of being a Kabane are to be locked up for three days and kept under watch." But still, yet again. It's shown that it takes only a minute for the infection to take over.

7. The evil adults lock him up for being a retard and keeps bitching about not losing his humanity to fear, but he lost his humanity to ANGER. Also it doesn't matter what you feel when you're bitten. You lose your humanity regardless of emotions so it's all fucked up logic for edgy teenagers to hate adults.

8. The survivors weren't allowed to leave the city because they all needed to take of their clothes and be inspected. YEAH GREAT IDEA! LET'S STAND AROUND FOR 1 HOUR INSPECTING EVERYONE FOR AN OBVIOUS VIRUS WHILE ZOMBIES ARE RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! No.

9: Final point. Whilst everyone is getting eaten, the protagonist wants to test his zombie gun. So he plans to lure one of them with the smell of blood. Which makes no fucking sense once again. Why are they attacking people who AREN'T bleeding? Why would they follow a small trail of blood when they're thousands of people all around them when they're full of it. It's just an excuse for the edgelord protagonist to cut his wrists.

Bonus: Also he stops the infection by nailing his arms, chocking himself to stop blood going to his brain? Which for some reason didn't kill him and burning his arm that had the infection. This is so edgy I just might cut myself.

I mean I can forgive the train crew for not pioneering it, but you think someone else in a less vital situation would say "Fuck, why not try it? Worst case scenario we still need to kill him, but best case scenario it works and we get a huge understanding of how Kabane works."

If you paid attention then you would know that the average person views it as a curse you can't get rid of. That's why they suicide after getting bit. They don't know it's a virus.

The MC knows it's a virus because he's been studying them in secret instead of going day by day doing bare minimum survival. He wants to BEAT them, not just survive. That's why he was hording their body parts.

But he's not a kid, he's clearly a teenager that's been studying his shit ever since the incident with his sister. The adults we see clearly haven't been studying them and don't care to since they just want to survive.

>>139812396
If you look at the time period, it's safe to say that there are few people willing to study or even touch a kabane. They clearly view it as a curse.

It's a stretch to say that ONLY the MC studied them, but it's clear that in this town, nobody gave a fuck to. We don't know a lot about the bushi except that they're the oppressing the populace to keep order. So maybe they prevented people from studying them due to the perceived curse.

If you noticed, every infected person was avoided like the plague.

>>139812566
Mangifera indica, commonly known as mango, is a species of flowering plant in the sumac and poison ivy family Anacardiaceae. It is found in the wild in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan where it is indigenous and cultivated varieties have been introduced to other warm regions of the world. It is a large fruit-tree, capable of a growing to a height and crown width of about 100 feet and trunk circumference of more than twelve feet.

The species appears to have been domesticated in India at around 2000 BC. The species was brought to East Asia around 400-500 BCE from India; next, in the 15th century to the Philippines; and then, in the 16th century to Africa and Brazil by the Portuguese. The species was described for science by Linnaeus in 1753.

Mango is the National fruit of India, Pakistan and the Philippines. The Mango tree is the national tree of Bangladesh.

MC is a fucking madman

instead of amputating his arm he goes the full length and sears it with glowing hot iron, nails some sort of iron brace to his torso and then proceeds to hang and stretch himself

how the FUCK did he know the virus would just recede and not wait until his carotid is opened again?

this shit is so attack on titan, I'll still watch it but the similarities are insane
>>
>>139812969
>>139811326
In most zombie stories, medically it would be a death sentence to amputate since it's extremely dangerous to do so. Most people aren't doctors so they don't know where it's safe to make the cut and they don't want to be responsible if they died while the amputation is being done.(You can easily bleed out and there's usually no way to replace blood in these scenarios)

In the walking dead, they had a doctor character to guide them through the amputation process to do it properly so he wouldn't die as well as the fact they still had medical supplies.

So tl;dr: Amputation is extremely risky and dangerous.

Yeah but again, these people view it as a curse. So when you think a magical curse is in you and there's no way no to be tainted by it then the only choice is suicide.

This is an asian society so it's pretty much "yeah I'm cursed so I'm killing myself for the good of the society" and there's also the lack of responsibility too.

You will probably feel responsible if you accidentally killed your friend while chopping his arm off but you kind of won't if he had to kill himself for the good of your civilization. That's the main reason they encourage suicide

Nigga, are you reading anything? Why amputate the dude when he should just do his duty and kill himself?

>>139814488
Superstition does not have logic. Again, people tend to not want to touch those who are cursed or even infected. It's normal human behavior.

People used to believe lepers were cursed. Hell even in modern times when someone says they have AIDs or HIV you can visibly see people making distance even though logically just by touching someone you don't magically get aids.

And if you paid attention supplies are probably an issue in this setting, you can probably infer why people would want you to kill yourself instead of amputating yourself, becoming useless in the process and then becoming another mouth to feed.

There's a buttload of perfectly normal reasons to not amputate in this setting.

It was still in the tunnel when they started lowering the bridge. The fact that the train was on time, and thus exactly what they were expecting probably contributed to their carelessness.

>>139814567
I think it's heavily dependent on how you get wounded by a zombie in the setting.

the MC had a pretty deep bite on his arm so it looks like that's why it seemed to spread faster than the guy who just had a cut or a guy that got his thumb bit off.

I don't think the train workers typically have wounds like the MC did. So I think the whole "3 days" thing is how long it typically takes a small wound to completely zombify someone

Seems clear enough. There's no reason to think it's an instantaneous curse when you can see it visibly spreading in such an obvious fashion. There's not even anything that even says it's an instantaneous curse. Them believing it's a curse that spreads is perfectly consistent with what this episode shows us. They're just too lazy to provide tools in case someone does get bitten.

But what you don't understand is the clear body language of the people surrounding the cursed/infected person. They refuse to actually touch them.

>>139815754
It looked like broke protocol and lowered the bridge too early because they were relieved to have the train appear just as they expected. There was no need to have the bridge get stuck, by the time they tried to raise it it was too late and the partially raised bridged deflected the train though/over the wall. It looks like the wall wasn't made to withstand that because they expected any runaway to fall into the gorge. Shitty planning and fuckups on infrastructure happen all the damned time even when there isn't a zombie apocalypse.

That scene where they suspected the guy of being bitten was stupid, the bite marks leave big telltale purple rashes that spread across the body in a matter of seconds. It would have been pretty easy to actually tell whether he had been bitten or not.

>>139813291

Also I find it impressive that he was able to make so much progress considering not only the bushi were censoring research on Kabane and Destroying any specimens but germ theory wasn't particularly widespread during the industrial era.

But why was that one prisoner alive and not a zombie for so long even though he had been bitten? Why is there a rule set up to lock people up 3 days?

It's possible smaller marks or different vectors could make the infection work differently. The implication of that scene certainly was that they have familiarity with infected people who still looked outwardly normal at first. Mumei had the whole "how could you tell" line for example.

After I lost interest wading through this sea of shitposts, dumb or outright false criticism let me just share with you my opinion: This is the best anime of the season and everybody will love it. Stop being a faggot about it: Reddit will love it, 9gag will love it, normies on facebook will love it.

Just accept it and enjoy the show which judging by the first episode is an original spin off of the old and tired zombies bullshit which was an epidemic itself. This will put an end to that and luckily it will be a glorious end, you won't need to watch zombie shit for a long time after this. Peace out faggots.

Horrible security. Retarded procedures when trains arrive. Cages where they keep the kabane suspects are made from wood and are guarded by one guy. Just one layer of walls. Train tracks going straight into the city. Nobody thought about using their suicide shaped charges to kill kabane.

>He might've only just restriced blood flow so well that the infection stopped
That would be pretty silly, anon. He would've caused permanent brain damage long before the infection magically stopped from not being able to reach his brain.

It was spreading through his bloodstream in every direction and stopped the moment it reached his hand where he was clutching the crystal. He just slowed down its progress towards his brain by constricting his bloodflow, so it reached his hand first instead.

They put way too much emphasis on the unexplained jewel in his hand during that scene. It's the macguffin, which means this story is going to take a "follow the magical macguffin to unravel the mystery behind the setting" approach.

It makes sense that if the train whistles everything is clear, in fact that is probably their signal

They don't keep real Kabane there it's just for show and to put people like Ikoma away

>>139818758
The gem is just a talisman. Probably from his childhood friend or sister that got killed.

The important part is that his breathing stopped with the strangling himself part.

>I'll give you this, the people of this world seem pretty set in their ways

This is one of the few points the show answered in a logical in-universe way.

The hearts of the Kabane are too hard/armored to get pierced by most things.

It's just something that's way over the top and ridiculous. I'm not gonna keep repeating 'But why do zombies follow the smell of blood!?!" because that makes perfect sense and the other anon is a retard, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a needlessly dangerous and boneheaded plan.
>>
>>139819420
yeah, that suicide pack probably only works on a heart that is still human. it's been established that a turned heart is extremely difficult to pierce.
>>
>>139819420

Tiny shaped charges can pierce armored vehicles.

Nips had lances with them they used to destroy Shermans during WW2.

He heard specific kabane chasing specific people and started his trail there. As for the blood, that seems like a standard sort of action movie type exaggeration. He's just that much of a badass etc.

Why didn't he just cut his arm off instead? Or at least strangle the blood flow? I'm the time it took him to fix the straps, bolt himself, work the machinery and so on, he could have just cut off his arm or done to it what he did to his carotid arteries. It would have been quicker and would have posed a much, much smaller risk of him dying.

>>
>>139819151
They probably have stations built over mines for coal.
The first episode had a long shot of the station which showed rice fields within the wall, so they just farm within the confines of the walls.

Wood is anybody's guess, since I don't suppose they have stations big enough to encompass entire forests and they obviously can't safely harvest lumber in open areas.

The strict, totalitarian military dictatorship and stratified society make it pretty obvious that not having enough food and resources to go around and distribution being controlled by the conservative elite will be a major theme.

From the way that they talked about supplies and whatnot, they probably have stations dedicated to generating specific resources, like farming-based stations and the like. They seemed really dependent on whatever supplies were being transported, so individual stations are probably not self-sufficient.

they probably are, just not all bushis are skilled marksmen/swordsmen enough to do it at a consistent bases. most of time they probably just shoot and chop kabanoses till they stop being a threat, and not necessary completely killing it.

But war requires scientific progression. If you're saying logic and that ain't their strong points how did the weapons they currently use came to fruition? We know there exists at least a faction capable of makign these weapons, and lets ignore the trains that are clearly massive so that also implies they've got more than enough resources to have more layers of security. And carrying resources from one place to another would also be extremely easy with trains.
>>
>>139820148
I didn't understand that part at all
They established earlier in the episode that the train comes to a complete stop on the other side BEFORE the bridge is lowered, yet they preemptively lowered the bridge there before even seeing the train coming.

The train also completely destroyed their checkpoint there when it crashed, so it'll now raise the question of how subsequent trains are going to pass through that station with the rail busted up.
>>

No, being effective at it requires those things, unless you're fighting someone who isn't much better at them then you are.

so I just watched the first episode and I don't like it

visually it's great, the setting is interesting. but that's it.

none of the characters are likeable, the people in general are retarded, male protag has edgy past and special powers even though he's a dumb kid, female protag also has special powers and can magically decapitate stuff even though she's just a dumb girl

most of the episode has been cringy as fuck to watch. even though they are able to build all this ridiculous infrastructure they are too retarded to make a safe design for their cities that can't just be overrun like that

what a fucking waste

>>139820476
>They established earlier in the episode that the train comes to a complete stop on the other side BEFORE the bridge is lowered, yet they preemptively lowered the bridge there before even seeing the train coming.
The guards fucked up. The train was on time had need supplies and the whistle blew so the jumped the gun assuming things were fine.

>The train also completely destroyed their checkpoint there when it crashed, so it'll now raise the question of how subsequent trains are going to pass through that station with the rail busted up.
The train hit the end of the partially raised bridge and jumped up. Sanding onto/over the wall. If the bridge were up it probably would have crashed into the gorge and plowed into the embankment down there. Still damaging, but much less so.

This is a fair point though. There are zombies literally fucking everywhere. Why not take the fucking gun with him and shoot one of the zombies instead of fucking cutting himself?
Not only that but, what the fuck he actually cut his fucking wrist. Are you serious?

He didn't have a portable compressor set up yet. The hose was tied to the stationary gear in his workshop.

Fair enough, that makes sense.
Didn't pay attention to whether or not he had a portable compressor. Just figured since everyone else is using one that he must have one too.

>>
>>139820932
I think during the conversation they had near the beginning of the episode, one of the other engineers brought up using explosives instead of steam for the propellant and he tried to leave to try that. I assume that's what made his weapon finally work.

The Bushi are essentially using compressed gas BB guns with lead bullets. It should be noted that lead is used because it fragments easily on impact and the fragments are more likely to be lethal to humans. This is the same property that makes their guns insufficient for damaging the armored heart of the Kabane. The Bushi deliberately stick to weapons more effective against uninfected humans because their focus is not on killing or fighting Kabane, but on maintaining military power over their population.

MC's stake driver gun-thing uses something denser and apparently is explosively driven rather than simply pressurized.

Don't know about you guys but this thread feels comfy actually. That's weird.

Will WIT finish the opening and ending in time for the 2nd episode? Let's bet on that.

>>139821449
I hope they do but no, they are WIT and therefore can't find a way.

>actual discussion on the setting of an original sci-fi series
It's always fun. We don't get to do this often enough anymore because most originals coming out for the past while have been low-effort shit and adaptations are always inundated with ESL primaries trying to be an authority on everything by parroting chinese summaries they read in broken english.

>>139821432
stop challenging them

Are you same guy who post "ESL" thing in every ongoing threads?

Just ignore him. The ESL meme breaking out of LN threads is the worst thing since lel.

It's not just one person.
/a/'s pandemic of people who can't effectively communicate in written english is pretty obvious for anyone to see. It's gotten bad over the past year.

No need to call it, it happens at the end of ep3, he attacks the daughter of the chief.

Huge enough to have weaponry. There must be a faction experimenting with the virus. The chocking is an asspull that hasn't been established before

It's the first episode.

The girl who beheaded the zombie at the end seemed to have had the exact same idea as MC.

Father's gun will never get repaired

It was a shit gun anyway.

Well, the two will go full SnK after all.

>>139811727
I believe a couple of the zombies were cg in the background but the shading covered it really well.

I hope she becomes penniless and becomes princess of the slums instead.

I thought the MC was really cool, enjoy it more than AoT so far but i'm worried about the 13 episode running, hope it sells decently gets another cour.

>>139823070
she didn't seem to have much experience though, since her foot got stuck after all, and I refuse to believe that was just degenerate fanservice

>>139823275
So it goes away as long as it doesn't reach the head? The entire metamorphosis? in mere seconds?

Regarding the virus scene, there are major reasons why it is ridiculous.

For one thing, if you are going to kill the virus via a lack of oxygen then how is it the mc is still conscious? From loss of blood to the amount of pressure on his neck, he should have passed out.

We see the mc try to stop the virus via adding heat to it but that didn't stop the virus. The mc just got burned really badly on his arm and yet we don't see a whimper or even shouting expressing pain.

Then there's introducing high temperature steam to your chest. There should have been scalding burns on the entire inside of his thoracic cavity. If that doesn't kill you, the sudden over-pressure in the heat probably will.

On the thermal note, raising your core body temperature quite a bit, as well as filling the air with water vapour might cause you to die of heat stroke.

Care for anyone to explain this?
>>
>>139823385
It's a chinese cartoon about zombies with iron hearts.
>>
>>139823385
He doesn't kill it with lack of oxygen, he just stopped it from reaching his brain through his carotid arteries by pressing down on them really hard. I guess the virus somehow couldn't squeeze through. Yes, it's stupid.
>>
>>139823385
Can we just assume MC died? That would be fun

Would be a pretty good twist.

>>139823415

True but if people are inputting logic to defend this than there should be logic to criticize it as well.

>>139823468

He should have passed out first then the virus slowly go back to being in remission.

>>139823472

Would be fun but no one would be driving the plot.

>>139823507

That is on the level of fairy tail's nakama will give me power crap.

>>139823631

Adrenaline doesn't stop you from passing out though.

This show is some pretentious shit but I'll watch it for mumei.

You're assuming you know how it "should" work, or that its analogous to a real world virus. For all we know it could be some kind of large scale parasite. It certainly doesn't look like it behaves like microscopic nucleic acid replicators.

I want ESLs to fuck off back to /v/.
