As the world is in the middle of an industrial revolution, a monster appears that cannot be defeated unless its heart, which is protected by a layer of iron, is pierced. By infecting humans with its bite, the monster can create aggressive and undead creatures known as Kabane. On the island Hinomoto, located in the far east, people have built stations to shelter themselves from these creatures. People access the station, as well as transport wares between them, with the help of a locomotive running on steam, called Hayajiro. Ikoma, a boy who lives in the Aragane station and helps to build Hayajiro, creates his own weapon called Tsuranukizutsu in order to defeat the creatures. One day, as he waits for an opportunity to use his weapon, he meets a girl named Mumei, who is excused from the mandatory Kabane inspection. During the night, Ikuma meets Mumei again as he sees Hayajiro going out of control. The staff on the locomotive has turned into the creatures. The station, now under attack ...

Great freaking anime!
3 June 2017 | by jace-rynearsonSee all my reviews

I'll be brief, I love this anime already. I watched the first episode not really expecting much and I was amazed. I then watched the rest of the season, and loved every minute. The story is great, the animation is beyond top-notch, the voice acting and characters are great, and I absolutely love the music (especially the opening and closing themes). On top of all that, it's intense but also emotional, and it mixes those perfectly. I don't know why people keep saying it's an Attack on Titan clone, because it's not. It's it's own original idea. It takes a zombie apocalypse to a whole new level and it is great. All in all, it's one of those very rare perfect anime shows. Can't wait for the second season, I hope there's a second season.
