He's a foreign technical expert. Like in the meiji era how Japan hired many foreign engineers to teach them how to build shit, he's there because he's there to teach japan how to build shit. Or was, before the habaneros.

Except this isn't Meiji because there is still a Shogun - most like the Meiji Restoration didn't happen because it's late 19th or very early 20th century. But yes, you're probably right apart from that.

There is a high chance he is supposed to be a foreign engineer out of Dejima.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dejima

He might supposed to be dutch, but because people with the right accent are impossible to find and for japanese not recognizable as a dutch accent. Instead they went with a heavy american english accent because it is recognizable to japanese audience.

There is historical evidence for japanese hiring foreign engineers during the time as mentioned

Anyone else get mad at the swordfighting kabane asspull?

I mean jesus, i hate to say it, but they should have went with a better explaination with it, like "skilled individuals can sometimes retain their skills after becoming a kabane", and not the 'it lived long enough to somehow become proficient with blades"

Juan Hernandez

Parker Gutierrez

The show is based on Sengoku Japan, not Meiji, idiot. He's clearly an analogue to Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese foreigners who helped out various daimyo of that era. Most sengoku-period shows feature one or two gaijins.

Brody Torres

I didn't get mad, but I was confused. It would make more sense if it was some sort of ability retention. I thought it might have been some sort of translation error.

Jaxson Smith

I'm fine with it. Clearly it grew physically and has fucked up internal structure. These aren't just zombies, they're freaky disease super zombies. They have some form of cognizance as they knew to jump onto the train as it went by, it is merely mostly instinctual. Trial and error taught him to use swords, I'm guessing most die before they get to his skill level because swords are hard when you don't actually think.

Andrew Martin

I still believe that everybody says rokkon shojo because someone once heard him say "Rock on Girl!" to the train and everybody loved it so much they wanted to know what it meant and it just stuck.

If you've spent literally your entire life in fear of something, that fear is hard to shake. Most people lost friends and family to the monsters. All humans lived in walled cities on constant fear. They gave every right to be fearful.

Lucas Gutierrez

I understand that but it's being conveyed so poorly it's incredible.

Luke Turner
Luke Turner

not really, they're handling it pretty well compared to most shows and when you think about how little time is actually spent on habaneros interacting with the frightful normies it becomes the equivalent of a few pages in a manga volume.

Ethan Gonzalez
Ethan Gonzalez

It's actually preferable, otherwise we'd have an entire episode devoted to it simply dragging out what we can pretty much infer from just a few minutes of the show.

Aaron Carter

Gavin Morgan
Gavin Morgan

Most of these people have never actually met a habanero because most people who see them close up die pretty quick, and the samurai being assholes like real samurai have no interest in educating them either, so that lack of knowledge leaves a lot of room open for superstition and fear mongering. Your average peasant probably couldn't tell you that habaneros can't talk and are attracted by blood.

They still regard the Kabaneris in the same light as the common Kabanes; they are monsters that will kill you if they're given the chance.

They fail to understand that the Kabaneris still retain some humanity within them. When they're still sane, they won't simply bite and eat people, but rather ask them to find other alternatives to give their blood, like what Ayame-sama does in the episode.

Wyatt Johnson
Wyatt Johnson

They still regard the Kabaneris in the same light as the common Kabanes; they are monsters that will kill you if they're given the chance.
Why? Has anybody ever met a Kabaneri or had one murder people behind their backs?

They fail to understand that the Kabaneris still retain some humanity within them.
Why? Has either Kabaneri they've met behaved in a manner less than human towards them?

When they're still sane, they won't simply bite and eat people, but rather ask them to find other alternatives to give their blood, like what Ayame-sama does in the episode.
Yeah, and when hungry Mumei asked the refugees for some blood they behaved like she was asking for a human sacrifice instead of, you know, a blood donation.
Then they acted like giving her blood would turn them into habaneros which goes against literally everything they know about habaneros.

Correct?

Andrew Clark

Nah. His sword is the only thing going kabaneri.

David Richardson
David Richardson

How does that even work? Why is it the area around the heart is the only hard part that a steel blade can't pierce but his limbs are easy to dismember?

Don't tell me Kurusu was only added for his sword faggotry and they had to bend the story to make it useful?

Joseph Nguyen
Joseph Nguyen

If anyone is Kurusu, it's number 3.

Adam Morgan
Adam Morgan

Kurusu is taller than Ikoma, I don't think he's 4.

I think we're going to see some characters changing their appearance. And after that:

1 = Ikoma
2 = Biba
3 = Kurusu
4 = ?
5 = Ayame (the hair and height checks out)
6 = Takumi

None of them look like Mumei in my opinion.

Adrian Collins

That's Inori from Guilty Crown, She's the persona vocalist of Egoist.

I want to see Makoto Segai.

Kevin Moore
Kevin Moore

This was what I thought also. Just the fact that they seem to coordinate their attacks into wave assaults rather than trickling into battle over a longer period of time indicates that they aren't mindless.

I assumed they were like smart animals which happen to have an overwhelming hunger for human flesh. And it's surprising how much dolphins or monkeys can figure out, given time and incentive.

Brandon Gutierrez

Fuck I hope so. As much as I want more kabaneri, season 2 would most likely just be shit, as usual.

Owen Lee

No, the problem has always been the HEART cage - but you need to pen that in order to put the thing down for good. There's never been any reference of structural reinforcement to the rest of the body.

Eli Scott
Eli Scott

They should just make Egoist anime with Inori as main character, other girls as the rest of the group, and Segai as producer-san.

Logan Clark
Logan Clark

Ya I agree. Too many episodes will just make the plot progress very slowly but the concern is all these new characters getting the proper characterization is the problem.

I wouldn't mind if this was 22 episodes or something.

Some science in this story is desperately needed. Explanation on the virus and the Kabane's inner workings.

that scene with hime giving blood to ikoma felt very biblical

as in the whole event was something that might be a part of a legend that grows unrealistically in time and various religious/supersitious customs are made from it, like i don't know, letting your blood on sunday as a prayer to the ancient kabane-removers

It's obvious enough he's going to be this NO.2. Biba seems like an important role, Miyano even went for the stage greeting when Biba still hasn't shown up in the show and doesn't seem to be a main.

James Reed
James Reed

It's actually worse that that. If the world had just ended, I'm still getting everything figured out, and am thus not going to be inclined to assume I've got a grasp of how everything works. Doubly so if there's steam zombies around.

Therefore, if I run into a Kabeneri and the encounter is not-hostile or friendly, it becomes intgrated into my understanding of the situation. I don't know what the fuck is going on, so maybe this guy can retain his facilities.

On the other hand, after twenty years, I'm going to be much more inclined to assume I've got everything figured out, even if I actually don't.

Liam Barnes

I dunno, wasn't figuring that out part of Ikoma's whole shtick? I'd be EXTREMELY pleased if NATURAL SCIENCE and FIELD RESEARCH becomes part of the plot, but I'm not sure we could expect anyone to have all those answers to give us as exposition.

Ikoma mentioned the Shogonate has the best weapons and so I making the assumption they have a research facility where they experiment on kabane.

Jackson Hughes
Jackson Hughes

Are people really this desperate to be spoonfed? Hardly anyone in this world is putting effort into trying to understand habaneros and even Ikoma, who dedicated his life to studying them doesn't know shit.

Who's supposed to explain the audience what the science is? Some disembodied narrator?

Even worse, you'd feel even more frustrated at the characters for not knowing shit instead of being interested in finding out more. Knowing more than the characters is always exasperating.

He showed up just like Mumei disappeared in ep 2, instantly.

I'd say Mumei is suspicious about that, see the look on her face just after he unexpectedly deflects her shot throw in ep 3.

Camden Bell

I don't think he deflected the shot, I think Mumei was trying to intimidate him, but he didn't flinch and stood his ground, so she was impressed with how ballsy he was.

Specially since she mentions "They're all cowards" later on.

Ryder Morris

She would recognize the smell like with Ikoma. I think it was just the fact he didn't freak out at all.

originally a simple trader working for a Brittanian agricultural company
ship overrun by kabane
seeks refuge in Japan
people treat him like dirt because gaijin are icky and maybe infected
thanks to superior Brittanian intellect, sees problem in steam production, not enough heat
use a couple of habaneros he had stored for emergencies and greatly enhanced heat production
revolutionise steam production and earns respect and title of chief engineer

David Gray

You mean culturally it's Sengoku but technologically it's the early 20th century.

Watch the sequence again, he lifts his rifle before the shot hits it.

We've already seen one new type of kabane this episode, maybe there are other types of kabaneri too. I'm wondering about this place that does kabane research, have they found other ways to hybridize humans and kabane? Looking at it another way, why is Kurusu only 17? Is it related to the kabane having appeared 20 years ago?

Lincoln Price
Lincoln Price

So, I see these fucking threads made everyday on Sup Forums like multiple times a day. Is this series any good? Or is it the same like five people making the threads? I just want some feedback from Sup Forums if I should start watching it or not, the threads usually get lots of replies so I figured it must be a good series.

Matthew Cook
Matthew Cook

It's good just go watch it and form your own opinion.

Jack Carter
Jack Carter

why is Kurusu only 17
Because japs always like young cast. He would need blood too in some way. There is just not enough episodes to introduce another type of kabaneri and explain why Kurusu would work as one. You still can have different kabane since they are supposed to be a threat, so something stronger should appear from time to time as a challenge to the cast.

Josiah Turner
Josiah Turner

Damn, so maybe he actually works for the locomotive company. That would be like the Marconi radio company in the early 20th century where the operators were all actually employed by Marconi.

Cameron Morgan

The Hayajiro's are moved by the McRucky Engine (マクラキー機関) developed in the United Kingdom. A steam engine with innovative vapor compression, that allows high output power to move the Hayajiro

Oliver Thomas
Oliver Thomas

Actually the show was pretty smart about it. Earlier we're shown that the wazatori broke another bushi's sword with his super strength.

Then the first thing that happened during its engagement with Kurusu is a very heavy parry/sword-locking that probably weakened Kurusu's blade.

I can't rewatch the episode right now but I wish someone can confirm whether the point of break matches the parry location.

Austin Cook
Austin Cook

It's the spiciest anime this season.

Ryan Campbell
Ryan Campbell

you know they made such a big deal about the heart of iron being hard to break through to actually kill them but it seems beheading also gets the job done.

And Ikoma's gun being able to pierce the heart at such close range will be kind of worthless to your average human meat shield. still waiting for him to use it in a fair distance away to kill a kabaneri.

Ethan Murphy
Ethan Murphy

technologically it's the early 20th century.
Technological early 20th century would have machine guns and rifles that can punch through steel plate and artillery pieces defending the strongholds that can send shrapnel right through the heart cages. There would also be airships for extra safe travel for the wealthy elite.

Joshua Edwards
Joshua Edwards

Implying they'll manage to wipe all kabanes from existence
Implying the iron fortress will eternally camp at the capital
Implying the setting will have nothing else to explore by the end of the season when we have more mysteries on hand than we can count.

If it sells well, you can bet WIT will make it. It's an original and it's basically WIT's answer to SnK being constrained by source material.

Jason Martinez
Jason Martinez

I think that beheading will just remove the threat, not kill them. They mention they regenerate, so I'd assume as long as the heart remains they'll just grow outwards until they're complete again.

OR at least that's what I hope happens, because otherwise they're retarded making a big deal about hearts when you can just cut their heads off with a sword.

Connor Young
Connor Young

still waiting for him to use it in a fair distance away to kill a kabaneri
There's no indication at all that it's a ranged weapon.

Zachary Torres
Zachary Torres

That's his point, if Ikoma wanted it to be effective against Kabane for a regular soldier, it can't have such a short range, they would just get slaughtered.

Cameron Baker
Cameron Baker

why kurusu is 17
So is the samurai from Kuromukuro. It a Samurai thing or an anime thing

Noah Moore
Noah Moore

That reminds me, why do the bushing guns use steam of all things? They have gunpowder, but they just use them for those stupid suicide bags instead of making Lee-Enfield rifles and .303 British cartridges?

Jason Collins
Jason Collins

I'm surprised they don't put suicide bags on poles to make what would be later called a lunge mine.

Nicholas Rivera

I felt like they were going for a more romantic symbolism since it was pretty dramatic how her blood traveled all the way to his heart to power him up.

Although, that could also be my shipperfaggotry going off too.

They barely know each other.

The first time they met was in episode 1, when Ikoma went to jail.

And the first time they actually "talked" was in episode 3, just before Ikoma tried to bite her. Even then, they just exchanged a few words.

I think that Ayame didn't even know Ikoma's name for most part of the anime, since she refers to him as "that man" [who saved us, etc]

So, unless there's a LOT of development here, I don't see both of them shipping.

Kevin Edwards
Kevin Edwards

There just has to be some reason they don't use gunpowder for offensive weaponry. Apart from it looking cool, I mean.

Hudson Mitchell
Hudson Mitchell

But nobody seems the least bit interested in what should be an earth-shatteringly abnormal situation. Even a maximum asshole reaction should be to lock them up so that the shogun's researchers can dissect them because the Kabaneri are so atypical compared to the zombies that the usual assumptions about zombie behavior can't be applied. Precautions are wise to take, but pronouncements like "Kabane shouldn't pretend to speak like humans" fly straight into the territory of the retarded (since when did Kabane ever pretend to do anything?) and the constant desire to kill them is a counterproductive waste of a valuable specimen.

Isaac Russell
Isaac Russell

Not enough gunpowder, maybe?

Or, because of the high demand, only the shogun can afford it.

There were no Perry black ships in this world. According to the official website, Japan wasn't closed off in the Sengoku period.

Not enough gunpowder, maybe?
Well, all it took was urine, wood and sulphur. Japan being largely volcanic in origin, I don't think sulphur would be in short supply.

Did you not hear them being referred to in ep 1 as "lowly steamsmiths"? It's just the way it was in the Edo social system. The peasants were higher because they actually owned land. You can live without technology, but you can't live without food.

Henry Nelson

They are feudal peasants. Most of them probably can't read. They don't care about your scientific thinking. They don't give a shit. They probably still believe the Sun orbits around earth.

But muh rational thinking!
But muh experimentations!

Do you even think, retard?

Asher Clark
Asher Clark

I'm saying that using a gunpowder charge to kill a kabane before it bites you results in a net decrease of overall kabane numbers by 1 and no net change in bushi numbers, while using it to kill yourself after the kabane that bit you (because your steam gun is shit) has been removed by your pals (nonlethally because steam gun can't kill kabane) results in no net change to overall kabane numbers and a net decrease of one to bushi numbers. Scale that up.

Ryder Moore
Ryder Moore

Ikoma is stronger than everyone except Mumei. He's also smarter than almost everyone there.

He's a scientist with special powers. He doesn't exactly fit in with any of the classes anymore.

If you really wanted a reason why romance won't occur it's because he's a fucking vampire and she's a human. Cross species romance isn't going to happen.

Bentley Ortiz
Bentley Ortiz

The samurai's constant urge to BLAM an asset which has so far killed several dozen kabane while having killed zero humans goes beyond lack of rationality and just goes into the territory of "good lord who taught you how to math"?

If they keep them around they will ALMOST DEFINITELY kill many more kabane, at the cost of POSSIBLY MAYBE they will chomp on a couple of humans upon which they will be instantly ejected from the train by bushis.

If they kick them out they will ABSOLUTELY DEFINITELY have to deal with dozens of kabanes that would otherwise have been killed by kabaneri, and thanks to the uselessness of steam guns these dozens of kabanes will chomp many more humans than the mere pair of kabaneris could possibly have chomped.

Aren't samurai supposed to be more educated?

Henry Harris
Henry Harris

Joker Game
maybe, if there wasn't that mountain of exposition at the end of each episode.

Ayden Hernandez
Ayden Hernandez

Or maybe the kabaneri use mind control and summon a demon king. Twenty years ago, the kabane probably sounded impossible as well.
Remember Ikoma repeating that it's not a curse, but rather a disease? The mainstream thought, at least in that fortress, seems to have been that the kabane are magic. "Magic zombies are attacking" is not fertile ground for application of the scientific method.

Bentley Morgan
Bentley Morgan

Humans aren't rational though.
Something can sound good on paper but in reality it can make you be very irrational.

Like being on a roller-coaster is perfectly safe because of the various safety features,but when you're on it, it is pretty terrifying.

I find it interesting that the term "virus" is even in the lexicon. Suggests they've progressed enough in germ theory to a late 19th/early 20th century level to have at least figured out the distinction between bacteria and viruses, whether by filtration or otherwise. Interesting that in the early 20th century most educated men who besides this pair of steamsmiths would rather ascribe an infectious condition that spreads like rabies does to a magic curse instead of trying to rationalize it in the context of disease.

Carter Flores
Carter Flores

Well viruses were formulated around the time of koch as filterable pathogens. Filtering the blood or whatever would remove bacteria but viruses are small enough to get through.

Either they thought about the place really well and have a good explanation somewhere or they just threw virus in because it's a word

Ryder Edwards
Ryder Edwards

exactly, the bushi's guns have range, but are still basically designed to kill people, not kabane and their extra tough heartcages.

They still work to some degree though since they can shoot them in the head and make em flop down for a while until they get back up.

Asher Allen
Asher Allen

live in a world where the main threat is habaneros
mass produce and arm your soldiers with guns that are designed to kill humans
Real good prioritization there. You've had decades to invent a gun that will bust through heartcages and equip your soldiers with them, but instead you've just switched your brains off and decided it isn't possible to shoot through magic. What the fuck is the shogunate doing?

Her ani-sama will then put in motion a plan to overthrow the Shogunate and crown himself as emperor and start an open hunt against the kabane island-wide.

Speaking of which, how did that pregnant lady get allowed onto the train and left alone, nobody checked her for bites before or after boarding?

This society is so paranoid about people being kabane that samurai can shoot and imprison random healthy people under suspicion of being kabane just for taking back to them and get away with it, and they won't let anybody who hasn't been screened onto the train even when there are a swarm of kabanes two blocks away.

So how did this woman slip through the net?

I like how after Ikoma recited the three day rule in the first episode we haven't seen a single person who wasn't Ikoma actually be quarantined. Maybe the three day rule is just a hsam and in practice the samurai prefer to just BLAM anyone who looks at them funny?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powerhead

A powerhead consists of a long length of tubing which is the chamber for the cartridge, a firing pin to fire the cartridge, and usually some form of safety pin or latch that prevents firing when it is engaged. The rear of the power head is fitted with some provision for attaching to a spear.

Powerheads are available that chamber a variety of handgun, rifle, and shotgun cartridges, from .22 WMR to 12 gauge and larger. .357 Magnum is probably the most common, as it is fairly powerful yet still compact enough to be used in a spear gun. Large cartridges such as the 12 gauge are generally only used on a handheld spear.

Some powerheads use the cartridge to propel a barbed spear point into the target. These are generally used on a bangstick for alligator hunting, to secure a line to the alligator to prevent escape.

Lucas Cook
Lucas Cook

Plot convenience rather than convenient for the people boarding the train.

Andrew Hernandez
Andrew Hernandez

A powerhead, bang stick, smokie or shark stick is a specialized firearm used underwater that is fired when in direct contact with the target, not to be confused with other types of underwater firearms which fire specially designed projectiles and do not require direct contact with the target. Powerheads are often used for spear fishing and against sharks or alligators for sport, defense, or to kill nuisance animals. The term powerhead refers to the firearm-like part of the device; when attached to a shaft to form a spear, it may be referred to as a bang stick or shark stick. The spear in question may be handheld or launchable from a spear gun.

Juan Parker
Juan Parker

It's basically a stick with a cartridge on the end, intended to be rammed into a shark's face and deliver a shot point blank.

Yeah, real convenient.

God, this went to shit so fast. Epitome of forced writing, where instead of creatively writing the characters into perilous situations, they simply throw stronger and stronger opponents at them. They're on a fast moving train, so how to make up some conflict?- just bring up some cliffs and slopes, because those always have kabane hiding in them, apparently. From kabane-infested station to kabane-infested station, just going through the motions contrived plot element by element.

So I haven't watched any of this, just read the wikipedia page and seen a few images, but from what I've seen the artwork is gorgeous, it looks like the old timey anime from the 70s and 80s that I watched on vhs as a child but with a budget and tools from this century. Is the story any good or is it just some sort of attack on titan or tokyo ghoul ripoff?

Jaxson Cruz

Is this show just SNK ?

I watched the first 3 episodes and read shingeki no kyojin afterwards and it really feels like a cheap rip off.

Like how both criticize humanity's defensive strategy and overall cowardice, it works in attack on titan because they're locking themselves up hoping nothing bad happens, it doesn't work in Kabaneri where they have means of transportation. If shit hits the fan you can evacuate a big part of the population and find somewhere else unless you're retarded.

Or how the titans were way more intimidating than some zombies. The authorities in SnK are hateable whereas they're not morally wrong in KnK and just on alert

Seems that the scene with Mumei beaten up is at the end of the episode. Ep 5 will be an exposition episode. Mumei's flashback, the creation of the KABANE HEART katana for Kurusu and Mumei runs into an old acquiantance at a seemingly abandoned train stop, which is actually home to some survivors.
Ikoma and Mumei fall into a hole, the hole caves in and they encounter the big kabane from the promo art which is actually several kabane fused together.

Let's be realistic here. There's no one left alive except the people on that train. You have somewhere between 20-30 soldiers (that number probably just got cut in half), a handful of engineers, a bunch of useless civilians, and a single noble.

At this point Mumei or Ikoma could single handedly overthrow what little remnant of humanity is left. Even if Ayame is a noble she simple doesn't have any leverage to give her higher status than the Kabaneri. If they were humans then a few guys with guns would suffice but as we've seen with Ikoma guns do little more than knock them back slightly. The remaining people on that train really have no choice but to run from the Kabaneri or try and gain their protection.

From whatever i've seen in anime/manga it depends. For her father to even consider marriage the samurai must be high class and favored by the father. They can date in secret though.

I thought they are more reliant on supplies delivered by train than on their own home grown food, why are farmers still higher than steam engineers?

Yeah. That's suicide.

Is Mumei simply immune? Can Ikoma take off his neck ring without turning into a Kabane?

James Scott

His question about her ribbon was easily foreshadowing some big struggle that'll require him to get rid of his "restraint" and go all out.

Ayden Bailey

I dont think so. If Mumei unties her bow she gains a boost but the virus becomes more active. That's why she has a time limit and has to sleep it off.

Uneducated people, maybe, but blood transfusions were being carried out successfully in Europe by the mid 19th century, and this is probably set in the early 20th century.

If I was directing there would always be background train movement and it'd affect everyone's wobbily bits.

Right, and the first successful blood transfusion was in 1840.

That said, it wasn't until some Austrian motherfucker discovered blood types in 1901 that it became reliable.

Bentley Rodriguez

I was going by the electric lighting. The red/green indicators of the locomotive master key looked to be electric, as did the drawbridge signal. Now OK that could have been as early as maybe 1880 or so, but especially the master key indicators made me think later than that.

Aiden Bennett

Considering that, I wonder what happened to the telegraphs.

The head also seems to be somewhat reinforce too like when he tried to decapitate some the sword just made a loud BONK sound when he hit the head and even he got confused at why it didn't work

Kevin Lee

John Green

That one in particular was very clearly not structurally normal - or at least human - that fin looking thing on its back, for example. Also, in the scenes where he was fighting Kursu, it looked like it was something like eight feet tall.

It's possible, but I'm not sure that the sword guy is a great single example.

Jordan Sullivan
Jordan Sullivan

I'm not talking about the katana using one, the one he kicked out of the train before fighting him also made a loud noise when he hit the head and that was why he opted for kicking him away

Blake Mitchell
Blake Mitchell

Oh, that guy,

The skeleton might change into iron. It might happen over time or inconstantly, which would explain how Mumei could dismember the freshly-turned townspeople so effectively, and thus take on such a large number of them.

She could also be just that strong, but if the skeletons of her decapitation victims were metallic, I would have expected the kills to be less... fleshy.

Adrian Turner
Adrian Turner

I just want a compilation of all of this guys english words, they sound so foreign with the rest of the dialogue. It's great.

Noah Scott

Oh, that hit upside the head.

Was that with the flat end of the sword? Because anything less than an overkilling strike just won't do it.

Ryan Reed
Ryan Reed

I wonder what happened to the telegraphs.
Good point. By the 1880's virtually everywhere in the world was connected by telegraph. Yet Ayame's father says to Mumei's priest/livestock back in the first ep that he read his letter. That said, I've listened to that section again and again and can't make out exactly what word is being used as "letter", so is it possible it was a telegram? Moonspeakers, please?

mfw everybody at the train dies a horrible death and only gaijin-kun survives

That's the reason he's the voice narrating all previews. He's telling someone this story and that's why there are some inconsistencies in the events: He didn't saw everything first hand.

Read the thread. Peasants owned land and produced food. Everybody needed food. The peasants relied on the samurai for protection and paid taxes to fund the higher classes. In that sort of economy, merchants and artisans were basically parasitic, just like lawyers and accountants are today. Of course the Industrial Revolution really shook things up in the West, but real social change for the lower classes didn't happen until the aftermath of WW1. Hinomoto hasn't got anywhere near that stage yet, even though clearly the steamsmiths now fulfil a vital role of helping to connect the last remaining pockets of humanity.

If you're talking about outside of japland:
The "middle ages" is a retardedly long time
You're right about the very early medieval times, but mid and late middle ages merchants were miles above the average peasant.
Peasants didn't even really own land

Jonathan White

Peasants didn't even really own land
Which is the basic difference between the Japanese and Western feudal systems. If you want to see what the West was up to at the same sort of time period Kabaneri is set, go watch Ermanno Olmi's The Tree of Wooden Clogs. If that doesn't rip your heart out, it must be in an iron cage.

Kurusu doesn't have his sword from the OP and Dio hasn't done anything yet, and he's in the OP too. Overall it seems more action oriented. I don't know if they're even going to have bullshit politics when they get to the capital.

They appreciate her help and all, but nobody LIKES her.

Carter Gonzalez

Yeah Kajika likes her now. I don't think Mumei dies unless this ends up being a show where every main character is killed off one by one.

I bet Kajika dies though. She actually is well liked by all the characters and isn't particularly that important to what's going on.

Liam Brown

It's Mumei who's stalking Kajika all the time and creeping her out.

Look at her face, user. LOOK AT HER FACE

That more like a "Oh gosh, this girls is so cute, what do I say! What do I do!" reaction.
