Synopsis

During an era of rapid industrial growth, humanity is beset by the emergence of a mysterious virus, capable of turning humans into mindless creatures called "Kabane." With a desire for nothing but human flesh, these undead beings can only be killed by destroying their hearts—which are encased in a cage of unyielding iron.

Faced with such a dire situation, the surviving population has retreated into fortified cities known as "Stations." Isolated from the surroundings by massive moats and towering walls, the only contact with the outside world and other Stations is via a drawbridge for armored "Hayajiro" trains. At Aragane Station, Ikoma works as a steamsmith to maintain the city's active transportation. Despite his role, he is angered by mankind's cowardice and inability to repel the Kabane.

Utilizing his free time and knowledge as an engineer, Ikoma has created a new weapon to ward off the horde. An opportunity to test it presents itself when the Kabane invade Aragane Station, yet this encounter will prove to be much more than just a trial run for Ikoma.

The first movie has a new scene, if I remember correctly, at the start that ties into a new scene at the end of the second movie, but it's nothing important, you can safely skip both movies.

There are also scenes cut, but since the original series wasn't very consistent. it's covered on this front. It might be even better this way as the only thing this show has is nice art and sound and flashy fights

Unfortunately, a rather less good summary of the first half of the series. An extra scene was added at the beginning, but it doesn't contribute anything to the story or plot. Strangely, the scene where Ikoma almost turns into a Kabane was cut out, so it just cuts from nowhere to a scene where the people of the Iron Fortress are angry with the Kabaneri without providing context as to what exactly happened before. Furthermore, the film couldn't end more abruptly, as the film ends at the exact moment the Iron Fortress escapes from the second station. You can watch the film, but I would ...
