They couldn't make the clip a few seconds longer Razz

But I guess the "humor" may downplay the horror the trailer is previewing...

Sounds great!

Really liked the brief glimpses of Ikoma and Mumei's voices and the panicked townspeople sounded good as well. Mumei only had the one line but I really liked the sound and tone for her voice having seen that scene a bunch of times in the sub and Ikoma who had a couple of lines sounded spot on as well.

This.

It would be great, and since it's been confirmed that a new season is in the works so there will be more later for Toonami to air.

The "steampunk survival action" story takes place on the island country Hinomoto, where humans hide themselves in fortresses called stations against the threat of zombie-like beings with steel hearts known as "Kabane." Only armored locomotives known as "Hayajiro" go between the stations.


So it's Gyo's "mecha dead things" plot without the bad fish smell?

I don't know. Maybe if it hits SAVE status I'd try it but I'm not going to go out of my way to take steam powered zombies seriously. Electrical, nuclear... wind; wow, that would be great, a tiny windmill on each zombie's head. "Aim for the weak point? What is the weak point?!"... sure; It wouldn't make an AoT rip off any less silly, just more fun. This should be fun, not... You mean it is? Ok then.

Also, no more trains in sci-fi horror movies that try to reach some kind of moral message. Whether weapons, settings or obstacles, they just don't work. "They represent the unity of the social environment that we're in!" Cute but they're the least apocalypse friendly device in existence. Who does the track maintenance in these events anyway?

Sounds alright, but they pronounce "Kabane" kinda weird.
