What is the plot of Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress?
Koutetsujou no Kabaneri takes us to the Japan of the Industrial Revolution. More precisely, Hinomoto, an island country with its name at that time. Although we go back an average of 250 years, that period has already entered the post-apocalyptic period because the walking dead, whose origin and origin are unknown, have already surrounded the world. These zombie-like walking dead are called “Kabane” and they are faster and more agile than stereotypical zombies. Their hearts shine and they are hard to kill because they are woven with thin iron. The rifles and swords of the period can also provide some benefit against the Kabanes. In addition, they are extremely sensitive to the smell of blood, can move in a flock.
Surviving people built high-walled cities to protect themselves from the Kabenes, which invaded the whole world, especially Japan. It is possible to travel between these cities called stations by armored trains. The protagonist of the series, Ikoma, also lives in Aragane Station, which is a middle-class station. Ikoma, who works in the maintenance of the trains, wants to fight them instead of hiding from Kabaneler because of a regret he has experienced in his past. For this, he is working on a weapon of his own design, and its purpose is to pierce the hearts of Kabanes easily with this weapon.
Like all people trying to survive, Ikome and Mumei take the armored train called Koutetsujou. The destination of the train is Kongokaku, but the journey will not be easy. When everyone on the train is afraid of Ikoma, food shortages brought about by the overpopulation, nervous warfare and of course the constant threat of Kabane, Koutetsujou and his contents are waiting for a long journey.
