I think I'm still burnt out on zombies, but hopefully they explain it better how he survived being bitten.

Pretty good first episode, obviously a lot of inspiration taken from AoT but it's still thrilling to watch nevertheless. First episode has some pretty great action sequences, good soundtrack and some fantastic animation (kinda what you expect from WIT with projects like this).

Right now I think I'm gonna jump on the hype train, this show has some fantastic people working on it, I look forward to the next episode.

Ep 1

I felt like the first episode was excellent. Art and animation were on point, and the OST was complimented by some really cool and violent action. Some terminology was introduced. It seems like these Kabane are essentially zombies in that bites are infectious and they behave in a mindless manner. The world is really interesting so far. The characters are particularly cool as well, both the designs and the personalities. Ikoma is inventive and intelligent so far, and Mumei is cute, but seems like there is more to her than meets the eye. Definitely hooked.



Truer words were never spoken.

Yup, Only other show to tie Jojo for this seasons premieres for me, looks freaking amazing (Those wood design quality dou) and just amped even more with Sawano's godly touch OST.

Engineer MC (loved that final scene of him) with a badass MH, fully sold, and the zombies are pretty cool too.

It does look good, but I don't feel like getting Amazon Prime atm.

I'll just cross my fingers and hope it ends up somewhere else.

Well. that was certainly interesting. Zombies are the theme. Zombies with hearts of iron. And they are all using steam guns with lead bullets. Granted cutting their heads off works. So probably burning the blighters would work as well. But that wouldn't be nearly as dramatical in terms of gravitas.

Main character is the rational scientist sort of type. Just with an agressive bent. Seeing the zombies as a disease to be cured (with violence) whereas the common view is it is a curse.

Things go wrong during a routine arrive and then things go south very quickly. He gets infected.. and then.. either cures himself using a very curious getup and some magic stone.. or contains it. Hard to say what happened there. Guess there will be an explanation later on. Suffice to say. It is somehow dealt with at least for the short term.

We're also introduced to his friend, workers, an ojou sama and some mysterious girl with shoes capable of cutting off someone's head. Curious to learn more of them all. Should be good fun.

E1

That was the best premiere so far, in my biased opinion - SO HYPEEEEEE!
Loved everything - the music, the art style (faces had quite a retro feel), the action, and some promising characters - the MC actually has brains!
I was worried that it would be a carbon copy of the progenitor, but it does seem to be sufficiently different to stand on it's own. I was lamenting the lack of female fighters, but the ending addressed that

However, I hope it explains how the MC fought off the viral-like infection (cos RL viruses don't just stop like that ), and that it hasn't put all its eggs into episode 1 alone. I think they should be just fine on budget at least.

Episode 1

That was interesting. Felt like a lot happened for the first episode but well executed in terms of technical visuals and soundtrack.

I hope we find out more about Ikuma soon. He's got some intelligence (and recklessness) while the show itself seems to focus on the whole humanity trying to survive against those zombie-like monsters. (Kabanes) The technological aspect of the show also seems decent with steampunk themes. Action is fairly good and I hope it maintains good world building merits. So far, quite interested to see where this show goes.

Episode 1: Frightening Corpses

Damn Attack on Trains really did live up to the hype. The animation, the presentation, the characters, the action, the sexiness, the trains, everything felt hype.

Really comes off as dark and serious in the first couple minutes, good way to pull me into the show. I hope that girl's hair is okay. Shit looks like it hurts.

I think the Kabaneri things have a bit of human left in them. Like when that one girl was pointing at the Kabaneri, it pointed back. Maybe there's a way to revert it like how he reverted it, (Hope that gets explained)

Looking forward to the upcoming episodes of Attack on Trains. Hoping to see more of Kendama girl, reminds me of Oichi from Samurai Warriors

Oh boy. Eren sure looks like he gained a lot of weight waiting for Attack on Titan season 2.

Great first episode. Mumei is so far the main badass of this show. I think I'll like this more than AoT. Since these are actual zombies, anyone can get infected and that raises the stakes. Almost everyone looks paranoid being around each other and those suicide bags are pretty crazy.

Kabaneri was awesome. Great soundtrack too!

I'm not even a big AoT fan, but I love this and mmmm Mumei is sexy to boot

Episode 1

I'm loving the steampunk, but...

This is basically Attack on Titan 2.0. Being that this series has the same director, composer, and studio, that's all a given right there. Attack on Trains? More like, Attack on the Steampunk Zombies.. I don't know how I feel about this since it's an inspiration from AOT, but the story seems decent so far. The steampunk mechanics are nice and the gore is over the top (for some people).

I hope things get explained later.

I saw the preview, and everything about it screams Shingeki no Kyojin. The MC, the setting, the aerial/jumping to fight, the visual quality. Let's just hope we haven't seen this anime before...
