Webmaster Review

86% Brilliant

The story is dark fantasy itself. It's a thrilling story about survival in a hopeless situation. Characters are cute with Mumei, and each character has good personality. The dark worldview matches the personal taste and is highly valued, but overall the worldview is good but the story is normal.

This animation has the highest level of drawing quality, and not only the smooth movement in action but also the color is very delicate and delicate. The background is also the highest level, and expresses the modern world view well.

It is famous that the theme song is the best. The acoustic BGM is very good and contributes to the production of the world view. A terrible worldview and theme song, the best drawing power is outstanding personality. OP is a terrible drawing and almost the highest performance and music. I have not seen any more OPs recently.

For some reason, it is a good anime that is highly rated by other people but is definitely one of the best. I want you to watch it without refraining from zombie animation. The splendor of drawing and music is guaranteed.

2. Synopsis

The world is in the midst of the industrial revolution when horrific creatures emerge from a mysterious virus, ripping through the flesh of humans to sate their never-ending appetite. 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 death, as the fallen rise once more to join the ranks of their fellow undead.

Only the most fortified of civilizations have survived this turmoil, as is the case with the island of Hinomoto, where mankind has created a massive wall to protect themselves from the endless hordes of Kabane. The only way into these giant fortresses is via heavily-armored trains, which are serviced and built by young men such as Ikoma. Having created a deadly weapon that he believes will easily pierce through the hearts of Kabane, Ikoma eagerly awaits the day when he will be able to fight using his new invention. Little does he know, however, that his chance will come much sooner than he expected…

3. Advanced can Learn Japanese with This Anime

The stage setting for this anime ranges from modern to modern. Surprisingly, however, the way each character speaks is modern, not old. However, many words and terms that appear during conversation are not used today. If you like Japanese historical drama, this is a familiar word. There are not many technical terms related to Kabaneri. From the perspective of learning Japanese, it is not a study in the first place. Who would like to learn a foreign language in a zombie movie?
