-synopsis: As the world is in the middle of an industrial revolution, a monster appears that cannot be defeated unless its heart, which is protected by a layer of iron, is pierced. By infecting humans with its bite, the monster can create aggressive and undead creatures known as Kabane. On the island Hinomoto, located in the far east, people have built stations to shelter themselves from these creatures. People access the station, as well as transport wares between them, with the help of a locomotive running on steam, called Hayajiro. Ikoma, a boy who lives in the Aragane station and helps to build Hayajiro, creates his own weapon called Tsuranukizutsu in order to defeat the creatures. One day, as he waits for an opportunity to use his weapon, he meets a girl named Mumei, who is excused from the mandatory Kabane inspection. During the night, Ikoma meets Mumei again as he sees Hayajiro going out of control. The staff on the locomotive has turned into the creatures. The station, now under attack by Kabane, is the opportunity Ikoma has been looking for.
Can watch on kissanime and gogoanime
-personal feedback: I'm sure many people have said the same, but it resembles Attack On Titan a lot. I suggest watching it and then comparing it, but other than it's similarities, it was still good. I liked it and I think I was freaked out more than I was for Attack on Titan. The monsters in this anime are much more terrifying to me than Titans are, just because we actually stand a chance against Titans *I cry*.
