Of course she does, but steamsmiths are way down in the class system (artisans were lower than peasants) and she's daimyo class. The Edo class system was extremely rigid. There's no way they could marry, but she could maybe take him as a lover once she was married off to some daimyo somewhere.

Why don't the zombies just destroy the train tracks all over the place? They've already proven they have some intelligence by driving the train while normal humans are to retarded and need someone specialized in train driving?

I'm also really enjoying Ayame thought she was gonna be your useless princess that cant do jack shit. What are her chances wining the Ikomabowl considering there's a good chance munmei is MC's sister?

Because then we wouldn't have a story. This is like asking how the fuck a pre-industrial economy can support not only these massive fucking trains, and stations which are the only safe spots for humanity, but also feed everyone with the little scraps of land they have.

You'll never get answers for these questions.

Why don't the zombies just destroy the train tracks all over the place? They've already proven they have some intelligence by driving the train while normal humans are to retarded and need someone specialized in train driving?

For once a Frodo makes sense. I was wondering the same thing as well, and the kabane wouldn't even have to destroy all the tracks. Rather, they could just destroy the track interchanges that lead to different stations and tracks, then post not-zombies by them to make sure nobody could repair them.

However, even though I wondered that at first, you're giving the kabane too much credit. The kabane learn by imitation, such as the one kabane being able to swordfight, and others copying the train operations. They realize the trains have people, but would have to have the importance of the tracks demonstrated to realize that destroying them would let them get to humans easier. You're giving them human level intelligence when they're more on the level of a dog or chimp; smarter than you might think, but still nowhere near a human.

Carson Hernandez
Carson Hernandez

How did Kabane see the train drivers for more then a few seconds? They literally would have just killed them and had no time to observe there actions, if they were even performing them when a kabane invasion was happening.

They know that the tracks lead to humans, they can also pick where the fight and can lay ambushes. Clearly the intelligence of the kabane goes up or down depending on what the plot needs them to do

Carson Torres
Carson Torres

For once a Frodo makes sense.
Oh please. The kabane weren't "driving a train" in the first episode, the train guy had died gripping the whistle chain, and the kabane was feeding on him which made the chain get pulled.

Daniel Perry

Why don't they quietly crawl along the ground at night waiting for a town to open its gates, then spin dash in when a train comes?

They're gonna fug. Ayame is confused as to why she got hot and bothered with soaked panties after Ikoma pushed her down and almost went full kabane on her. Just look at that blush, that slut.

And Ikoma is confused as to why he had such a raging erection when he delicately drank Ayame's royal blood off of her finger tips. He now regrets that he didn't go full lust zombie on her like his bro and Mumei implied.

I am pretty sure the train is the Iron Fortress, because it's literally a mobile fortress due to being covered in foot thick iron/steel.

A normal kabane is too stupid to do anything but lunge itself at things, so facing them head on might actually work a little better than sitting behind barricades and hoping none of them manage to jump behind. They also had the advantage of close quarters, which I assume is the only reason they deemed close combat possible.

Their main mistake was not knowing about the wazatori. The whole scene just felt like it was set up to show us how helpless humans are against wazatori.

The guns and swords work for normal kabane but if the kabane is a little tougher, like the samurai kabane, then they're fucked.

Mumei implied that they gained combat experience as kabane, though. And 'wazatori' means something like "technique stealer". Seems to me that they're extremely capable of learning through imitation, and wazatori are just imitating skilled swordsmen they once fought and managed to survive.

Why does blood supposedly keep the kabaneri from becoming kabane?
Who said that? Kabaneri are simply non-feral kabane. But the scene with Ikoma and Ayame showed that even kabaneri have a feral side to them that can temporarily take over when they're starving and see some easy prey, like a predator instinct. Easiest way to deal with this is to never get to the point of starvation.

You're really missing the point.
As you say, sometimes the peg and the hole don't fit.
But describing that as if the author wasn't equally responsible for both ends is just dumb.

If the writers of Kabaneri had established that the metal in the Habaneroverse is extremely light and their gunpowder is of low quality(both of which they halfway have), then the explosion scene would have made more sense.
Simply saying "this is forced and unrealistic" ignores the fact that the author is overwhelmingly responsible for constructing the reality in which the series takes place.

Hopefully we'll get more background. The VA is Maxwell Powers who is Japanese-American and is from the Oakland, California area originally.

Frodo, Kabanes react to human blood not iron placed on the ground.

If there are no trains with humans on board driving past them they wouldn't even attach the tracks. They'll just walk on it following the scent of human blood.

Also, they don't have any intelligence by driving the train. The Kabanes "driving" the train on episode 1 was just kabanes hanging out on the driver seat after they killed the human actually driving it earlier.

Please watch and try to understand what's happening next time.

They established they have kabane of varying intelligence. The one we see in the latest episode was a more "advanced" one. The ones in episode 1 were the run of the mill ones and not driving the train at all and the user already explained why.

Pick up an dictionary

Rokkon shoujou (六根清浄)
Rokkon = 5 senses + the conscience as 6th sense.

"Rokkon shoujou" means Clean the all
6 senses from the "selfish desires".
*(desire of profit and satisfaction only for hinself.)

In the dictionaries says it is done by
not hearing, smelling, seeing, tasting,
touching and feeling the "dirty" things.

But I think this is
"Put aside your selfishness and team up!"
or some shit like that.

You don't see it on Sup Forums really thank god, but it's common on some other boards.

I think the concept of bushido can be pretty cool when portrayed realistically, as soldiers training their whole lives to accept death without hesitation, becoming relentless in battle simply because they're unable to consider any other option than fighting on.

But in anime, samurai tend to just come off as arrogant cunts, always talking about muh honor and never really showing any real bushido because they just dance around the enemy and effortlessly cut through everything with their 100x folder katanas. Basically, anime kinda sucks for any kind of realistic combat scenarios.

I'd just like a calm episode now. I'd like to see them travel past the wheat fields, the ungrown fields etc as they do daily life stuff on the train.
I mean, everyone get it, it's ultra bad world out there. But an episode dedicated to showing us why we actually might bother to "care" about the people who so far have been relentless assholes from bottom to top would just be refreshing, both for the setting, genre and episode.

William Kelly

honestly that's what I feel like the next ep should (and hopefully will be). I think the most logical choice to go from here now that they've FINALLY wrapped up the whole "CAN WE TRUST THE HABANEROS?" bullshit (at least god I hope so), is to a more downtempo episode where they have to deal with the lack of food. maybe have some time to go into mumei's backstory or meet some new character(s) at wherever they go to get the food from. probably start calm and end with a new problem appearing.

Gavin White

Exactly. From this show started it's been high adrenaline show, which is good in it's own. But it hasn't established reasons to care about the situation.

I'm sure even 2ch thinks the peasants and elite in this show acts like fucking morons and would like to see something akin "why is this world so fucked?" and "Why should we cheer for the people in this train instead of just a few god plot characters?"

Action is great, but action is fuelled by reasons and history. Give us only action, and we end up having no context but speculations

Jonathan Ross
Jonathan Ross

wanting boring SOL trash in an exciting show
still wanting it even after the slow episode three almost tanked the show's sales

I hope to god not. They need to keep this train rolling, not have some cringey SOL segments with "comfy" and the like. Next you're going to want an onsen episode so we can really "characterize" everybody. If you don't already have a feeling and care for at least the main characters then you have literal autism.

a more downtempo episode where they have to deal with the lack of food

That, on the other hand, could be a good way to get people's comfy bullshit in while still keeping the show interesting and somewhat tense. However, with how many people died on the train recently, I think their food problems could have been significantly eased.

Maybe instead they could touch on the fact that the train still was never finished being repaired and is even worse shape now after the kabane attack, and have it be about a lack of materials/ability to repair.

One episode to establish whats at risk

You're literally retarded if you didn't puzzle this out the first episode. All of the people's lives are at risk since the kabane got into the station and put them on the run, and humanity's existence as a whole is at risk from the kabane. Are you even watching the show?

the characters personal reasons for wanting this or that

Ikoma's and Ayame's have been explained. Mumei's have been hinted at, and it's been heavily hinted that we'll find out more in the main shogunate hub. In a series this short, I'd argue the side characters really do not need to have any characterization, because that would be a waste of time unless we get a confirmed season two soon. This kind of characterization needs to be spread out the show, not crammed into one episode to completely ruin the movement of the show. And it certainly doesn't need to be in a "comfy daily life" segment like you think. Good storytelling in an action series needs to be dolled out in snippets (like it has been so far), or you risk losing the whole appeal of the show.

But we've taken a break for significant lengths every episode. A large amount of episode one was worldbuilding and characterization. Episode 3 had little action, just suspense, and had even more worldbuilding and characterization. Even episode two, which was arguably the most action packed episode, characterized people through the tension scenes such as Ayame having to deal with the asshole six chiefs or conductor girl having to put the impatient Kurusu back in his place when he told her to go faster. 2/4 episodes already do what you guys want without sacrificing the momentum of the storytelling. Doing more would be a bad idea in my opinion.

not really, most of what you're referring to was just shifting from action-based-tension to drama-based-tension. the stop the train and have their funeral but admist that we have the whole 'villagers trying to lynch ikoma' stuff.

I just think it'd be nice to have one episode that's relatively free of conflict. have some time for the characters to interact in a relatively relaxed and relieved setting (coming off the ROCK-ON SHOUJO! victory high from the end of this one), to see how that changes the dynamic. just the one ep though, and like I said it should totally end with "a new threat approaches"

but that's just like, my opinion man

have one episode free of conflict

Well, I won't say your wrong since this is just your personal tastes, but I would hate that. I am watching this show for the conflicts, not comfy, not safety. We already have so many shows free of any conflict or danger, it's nice to have one in which the danger is everpresent in some way, so the tension is always there.

That being said, a big trainwide party celebrating what's arguably the first every victory against the kabane could be a pretty good compromise between what we both want. You get a more relaxed atmosphere relatively free from conflict, and I'm not bored to tears during all of it.

it's nice to have one in which the danger is everpresent in some way, so the tension is always there.
yeah I guess it's just difference of opinion because i feel like that cheapens the tension. maybe I can kind of highlight what i'm referring to like this;

average shit horror movie
tensions are high, the music rises, he approaches the door
he jumps back as (music climax)
just a cat pops out
character relaxes and laughs at themselves, music fades
BAM THE SKELETON POPS OUT
JUMPSCARED!

now that's a cheap and shitty use of the same concept but here it wouldn't be for the purposes of tricking the audience, but for enhancing the action that comes after the calm.

That being said, a big trainwide party celebrating what's arguably the first every victory against the kabane could be a pretty good compromise between what we both want.
yeah that'd be a decent way to do it. there could be a light dusting of 'tense' stuff going on like while alot of the big players are kind of having the celebrations the workers are busy trying to repair all the damage from this last attack ASAP, maybe some time is spent on worrying over how badly kurusu's wound ends up being, but overall there's not alot of interpersonal conflict or more attacks, at least not til the last scene

so im jumpin in late but did they explain how an explosion that could blast a hole through the side of the train left the inhabitants unharmed with the ability to still hear

It's anime logic which supports a forced plot. In macross delta, they sweep jet wash at the crowd that is only 50 or so feet away. No one is burned, irradiated, deafened, blown away, etc. And the jet wash is totally silent since you hear both the voices of the singing idols and the music. In macross delta during fights with explosions, you can hear some sounds of controls moving but not the explosions drowning out the music.

But that wasn't what you were saying. You said they needed to explain what was at risk, which has been done thoroughly. You want to turn an action show into a political drama for some reason, which makes even less sense because they've answered your questions somewhat.

how their current society is run

They mentioned the shogunate multiple times, so it's probably based off of such a system with loose feudal stations having a high degree of autonomy from the central authority.

what hopes they have

That was the whole point of the success of Ikoma's gun, as well as the existence of the kabaneri. Humanity has a chance to kill and fight back, not just run and hide like they have been.

if there's any difference from nobles and peasants

Are you seriously watching the show or are you just memeing? They make it pretty clear that the peasants and artisans are treated like shit by the bushi (remember Ikoma getting his shit kicked in by a group of bushi for reminding them that they should follow the laws that they made?) and royalty, and that the bushi (i.e. the samurai and glorified police force) are directly subservient to the royalty.

Seems like you're just set on shitting on this show no matter what.

What? I love this show, I just don't want a boring SOL segment shoehorned into it because people are unsatisfied with less obvious characterization. I have no idea where you came to the conclusion that I dislike Kabaneri when I am a big fan of it.

It may be silly, but I am viewing the show in a contained environment specific to the medium of anime. I'm not considering Western shows or live action at all in this, so I feel like a good constant tension (not necessarily always AH THERE'S KABANE, but more of dread/anticipation is ever present in the background) would be a breathe of fresh air here. I'm having a little difficulty putting the idea into words, because tension doesn't cut it.

Glad we somewhat agree on the party. Despite my autism, I do see where you guys are coming from on more characterization, I just feel like it should be fit into the existing dynamic of the show, rather than bringing everything to a halt to cram in some exposition. It should be folded into the natural story flow somehow.

Glad we somewhat agree on the party.
I think there are probably plenty of ways to do it that would satisfy both sides, I'm not gonna bother going back through the chain to see if i said it already but I had the idea that the main focus on the episode could be the food problem (and the need to repair the damage from this attack). so still some tension I guess just of a less in-your-face variety.

I don't think anyone wants the tension to literally just grind to a halt, but most-of-one-ep of just taking it a little slower mite-b-cool after this ep's blowout

It's a trend in Araki shows in general, I think. The MCs are generally reasonably- to hyper-competent, while the background characters are drooling morons, constantly suspicious, panicky, and out to sabotage the MCs.

His weapon is explosively driven, while the army's guns are basically steam-powered lead BB guns. His also is a roughshod prototype with no range. It just generates enough force to penetrate their heart cage at near-point blank range, which the military's guns can't do at any range.

Grayson Nelson
Grayson Nelson

yes, instead of pew pew at range, it's pew pew point blank. Blowtorch instead of flamethrower, more concentrated force in a smaller area penetrates better. The guns the bushi use are probably not even designed for use on the Kabane, but are leftover from using on other people (which require less effort to kill) from before the Kabane showed up.

Developing new weapons is probably hard especially considering the infrastructure damage, lack of resources, manpower, and lack of cooperation in general.

Do you think pressurized gas isn't involved in explosive reactions, user?
What? The other guys are using pressurized gas to shoot airsoft pellets. Airsoft guns do not have explosive reactions. The gas just poofs them out of the barrel. Same way with Ikoma's gun, except he's shooting nails instead of plastic pellets.

Aaron Taylor
Aaron Taylor

Airsoft guns do not have explosive reactions.
Yeah, MC's gun isn't an airsoft weapon.
They went over it in episode 1. MC uses explosive propulsion to achieve penetration power capable of piercing the heart cage. The rest of the military are using pressurized air-guns with lead bullets, but MC explicitly abandoned that route because he couldn't get the penetration power high enough. The pressurized gas in his assembly is used as part of priming whatever explosive reaction he uses for propulsion.

They never actually tell us what is exploding, or what material he's firing, just that it isn't lead and is explosively driven.

Caleb Robinson
Caleb Robinson

most likely just
animu aesthetic
or more reasonably
just haven't had the time to properly perform the rather intricate surgery to remove them / doesn't want to just have them ripped about because painful

all the details about ikoma's gun are extremely hazy. the only thing we know for sure is that he does use some kind of explosives. it's never been made explicitly clear whether his gun ALSO uses steam or not, nor whether it actually fires any kind of projectile. there's a bunch of circumstantial evidence for every combination and interpretation, but nothing incontrovertible one way or the other.

It's sort of unclear at this point whether the writers think they've made it totally obvious how it works and don't realize the ambiguity, or if they're super banking on the ambiguity as a hook for some big reveal later.

Josiah Watson
Josiah Watson

he 'refills' his gun a few times throughout the episodes.

He does it twice in the second episode, and doesn't have a tank strapped to him like mumei or the bushi do at that point.

Jose Morales
Jose Morales

Does decapitating kabane kill them or not? They make a big deal about Ikoma's gun being the only way to pierce their heart cage but normal guns still seem to put them down. How long does a kabane stay stunned before it gets back up?

John Clark
John Clark

Does decapitating kabane kill them or not?

This still hasn't been made clear. It's implied that it does judging by when the kabane got pissed at Mumei for decapitating one of them during episode two, but other times they've said that destroying the heart is the only way to kill them, and use the suicide bag to destroy the heart for that purpose. This may have been because nobody was psycho enough to 1v1 a kabane with a sword to see if they could cut off its head, or it could be because headless kabane eventually just get back up and wander around aimlessly, so they didn't really "die". Since the infection spreads through bites, this may effectively count as killing them, but still isn't really effective given the strength and speed of kabane.

They make a big deal about Ikoma's gun being the only way to pierce their heart cage but normal guns still seem to put them down.

The kinetic energy delivered by the guns knocks the kabane down, but doesn't kill them or incapacitate them. The guns are literally just meant to slow down the kabane enough to escape, or knock them off the train so the they can get to a station.

How long does a kabane stay stunned before it gets back up?

Only a few seconds from what I've seen, but take that with a grain of salt.

Connor Watson
Connor Watson

I remember once in the 2nd episode where he appears to be refilling or fiddling with it, with the gun entirely offscreen, but then mumei shows up before he has a chance to use it. when was the other time?

either way we don't really know what's he's refilling, it could just be the explosive charges.

and doesn't have a tank strapped to him like mumei or the bushi do at that point.
he definitely has a tank strapped on during the climax of episode 2, is there a time you can think of where he actively uses the gun without a tank? the only one I can think of is again, circumstantial, the first time he uses it at the end of EP 1 I don't believe you see a tank ON him, but you do see a connecting-tube going from the gun to offscreen.

Jaxon Davis
Jaxon Davis

I'm pretty sure decapitating them does work, like when mumei does it (i mean it would make even less sense than everything else if it DIDN'T), I just think it's not reliable. like you need habanero strength to reliably do it. it seems like the relative strength of different body parts on a kabane is totally random; see Kurusu fighting in the most recent episode where he is able to take of a kabane's arm, but then later his blade just bounces off a kabane's head twice in a row.

Liam Adams
Liam Adams

I think so. They seem to imply that the Kanabe can be killed without piercing the heart cage, but it's the only immediately fatal injury. The arteries leading to the brain are reinforced and their musculature (and probably skin) are superhuman, which makes them more difficult to damage and to stop with regular injuries. Piercing the heart-cage would be ideal because it means instant stopping-power.

Henry Ortiz
Henry Ortiz

Kurusu was clearly just bopping the baldy.

Daniel Nelson
Daniel Nelson

the second time is just before the kabane breaks into the train car, and he opens the door to kill it.

he apparently gets his tank at that second time

Dylan Martin

Would burning them work? It shouldn't matter how indestructible their heart is if every other tissue in their body is charred to a crisp.

Ian Thomas
Ian Thomas

I was thinking decapitating them didn't, because they regenerate and the ones Kurusu chopped up only fell out of the train, but Mumei did it to the first Kabane that attacked her in the first episode, so maybe.

Carter Powell
Carter Powell

but then later his blade just bounces off a kabane's head twice in a row.
He wasn't hitting him with the blade edge.

Austin Moore
Austin Moore

Would burning them work? It shouldn't matter how indestructible their heart is if every other tissue in their body is charred to a crisp.

It probably would, but lighting the kabane on fire would just make a lot of fast, angry, nigh unstoppable not-zombies, so that's not a solution. It would take an hour or more for them to burn down, assuming you even had a good way to light them all on fire to begin with.

Levi Perry
Levi Perry

Ayden Kelly
Ayden Kelly

hmm. if that's the case, i still don't think it's proof of anything. one could imagine that the gun itself can be pressurized, and that the tank is only necessary for reserve "ammo" so to speak.

hmm, my mistake then

still, wouldn't it be totally ridiculous that kabane could survive without a head? i mean it's really emphasized that they can emulate and learn human-like behavior, unless the kabane virus is growing them redundant brains inside their bodies (which just seems convoluted and dumb), it would be absurd that a beheaded kabane could continue to function.

Anthony Rogers
Anthony Rogers

Does decapitating kabane kill them or not?
It takes them out of the fight. Mumei wouldn't really care if there's a kabane in that path a day or two from now, because she'd be long gone.

That said headless kabane regenerating their heads probably would be easy to kill permanently by dragging them into a big fire, would require having the entire area pacified.
