Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Episode 7: Zombies on break


This seems like something that will be useful in the future...maybe even in this episode. But on to my main complaint...I don't think you should be allowed to make this statement about the Kabaneri's ability to copy others without some sort of explanation. In most cases, you can wave it away with "oh, that's just one of their powers", but in this case, the Kabaneri are a combination of human and Kabane, so I expect an actual reason. Remember how they said the Wazatori just randomly learned to use a sword well by instinct? That means it's likely not coming from the Kabane side.

...I actually agree with Mumei here.

Ahh...how the standards have dropped.

And yet they feel the need to explain this "daita-iron" thing to us? The low evaporation point thing makes a little bit of sense because that means it's easier to cause it to expand and increase pressure. But why is the evaporation point relevant for iron?

Ahh crap...that means this episode is going to be a filler episode where everyone does an apocalypse-style Tanabata celebration, doesn't it?

...no complaints on this one.

Do I really need to see this?

Seriously, why is this scene even important?

Now this scene, I don't actually mind...mostly because Sukari just doesn't care.

This scene is like a random stab at comedy, but I have no idea what I'm supposed to make of it. Ayame got hungry as she was waiting and Kurusu is embarrassed to interrupt her while she's eating alone? I mean...so what?

I don't understand your surprise here. If your regular guns couldn't pierce the heart cage, what did you even use them for? Were you aiming for the gaps in the cage mesh? I've never tried shooting at a fence before, but I imagine most of your shots go through the holes...just saying.

Why do I get the feeling we'll never see this name again?

Random stuff aside, I actually respect that Ikoma notices Mumei's internal pain here. It's clear from the way she acts that she's legitimately afraid of becoming a monster.

Mumei would be great at Cinema- err...I agree with Mumei's attempts to inject logic into the situation. I would do the same. But clearly she's never watched anime with this statement.

...kill all the tita-immediately stabbed

Haha this face.

Aaaaaand then the Kabane attack?

Hmm...I feel like I've seen this exact scene before in a different series...

Honestly, this side arc where Ikoma is suspicious of the shogun's son is actually a bit promising to me. He'll probably get the standard backlash of "you're a Kabane trying to defame him" or something.

So yeah...not really much going on this week. The rest of the season better be full of action. Either this or the episode is actually a bunch of death flags as everyone broadcasts their future plans.

    The fireworks would have definitely attracted Kabane. Like seriously.

    I think a lot of viewers missed a very critical point. Based on the fact that it uses evaporating metal as second stage penetrator, this means Ikoma essentially created rifle caliber version of HEAT-rounds normally available for tanks.

    In a steampunk-Bakumatsu era-zombie apocalypse setting, no less.

    the necessity of second stage penetrator is actually pretty relevant to the steam rifle design (although why they use STEAM as main propulsion eludes me). Since just single stage shot lacked the penetration power, a second stage impact-triggered charge are rigged to the bullet to do the actual penetration.

    In short, Ikoma, IS A FRIKKIN GENIUS
