  • Watch this show now!
    For those who don't focus on too much details, this show will deliver. No need to understand their full background or history but the small glimpse of each characters pain and ambitions will make you want to keep watching.
    The animation is beautiful you won't even realize it unless you pause to reflect from all the amazing fighting sequences. As you sit and fall in love with the characters you ...

  • would definitely recommend
    I must say, this is one of the very rare 12 eps animes that have a nice story with great characters and leaves you somewhat satisfied at the end. Of course it has its flaws like any other anime but it doesn't leave you asking too many questions or dissatisfied.

  • Humanity's worst enemy is humanity itself...
    The anime takes place in an alternate timeline where humans can't think and take unnecessary risks all the time. It's like a caricature of western zombie movies through the eyes of a Japanese that didn't quite get it.
    Excellent art, animation, interesting world-building... And that's all.
    The character's personalities, motivations, and proclivity in making bad decisions made me want then dead ...

  • Amazing! At first...
    Most of this show is a solid 5/5. The early parts are an absolute treat and really capture that horrifying magic of early Attack on Titan (Same director/composer/studio)... We get that pendulum swinging back and forth between the oppressive horror of this world gone to shit fighting with the light of hope and perseverance shining through the darkness. I was on the edge of my seat gobbling up ...

  • LOVE THIS SO DARN MUCH!!!!
    I liked it from start to finish. The ending after 12 episodes was kinda a bummer till I found out the rest was on Netflix. I assume they couldn't get the rest because Netflix has that poopy habit of say, taking only the ending bits instead of taking all of it, thus CR couldn't get the rights to what Netflix already had.

    That being said... This show was devoured in two days. I loved it from ...

  • Needed More Then 12 Episodes
    There is a lot to like about Kabaneri. A steampunk setting with trains going between walled settlements that attempt to fight back against a near invulnerable zombie type of menace. However, right off the back from episode 1, I notice a big problem - not enough screentime is given to justify why things are the way they are.

    There really isn't enough time given to determine why characters might ...

  • Had a decent story till the 3/4 part needed a better ending.
    This was a interesting show till the end that is. You do enjoy the ride of till about episode 8. The ideas were cool the steampunk/railway/ imperial japan setting was mashed up in a very interesting way. It had set up and was ready to tell a decent thought out story. Yet said story swerved when they had already set up a better path. It's story tries to build a big battle filed ending but fails to ...

  • Best Anime in a While
    This is by far one of the best anime I have seen in a while. The art style is amazing and unique, with characters that make you want to root for them. I can't recommend this enough. It has a cool mix of attack on titan with snowpiercer that I haven't seen before and apparently love.

    One of the best Zombie Shows
    Synopsis

The only way to kill these beings, known as "Kabane," is by destroying their steel-coated hearts. However, if bitten by one of these monsters, the victim is doomed to a fate worse than ...
