Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Episode 5: Nothing could possibly go wrong!

Yay new weapons! Still, I have to get upset with the fact that they gave us the sound of the guns firing and then explained how the bullets worked instead just…showing us the entire sequence. That just feels lazy to me.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.34_[2016.05.13_08.52.53]

Uhh…the Kabaneri didn’t show up in last week’s fight until the very end? You guys were doing fine before then if you don’t count the Wazatori.

Again…this sword had no problems against the Kabane except for the Wazatori. The only way this is an upgrade is if you coated it with the Wazatori’s metal plate, which I highly doubt you did because there’s no way there’d be enough material. Still, Kurusu needs a decent weapon, right? Man, I was hoping he’d make a gunblade…

Mumei is not amused.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.36_[2016.05.13_08.58.42]

Uhh…no. That would be you, Mumei. Weren’t you listening to the kid before? These guys might be “bothering” the kids, but I doubt they’re “scaring” them.

I’m pretty sure this is peer pressure.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.45_[2016.05.13_09.03.34]

Oh look…an old friend!

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.02_[2016.05.13_09.05.13]

“You’re only a weapon” cliche.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.12_[2016.05.13_09.06.25]

This whole “switching back and forth from the map and the actual location” thing that’s happening in this scene isn’t actually helping. If anything, it’s a bit distracting to randomly switch so much.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.16_[2016.05.13_09.07.22]

*facepalm* Why would you say this?

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.39_[2016.05.13_09.07.47]

You’ve made me weak! I only work alone! Where have I seen this development before? This entire scene makes me cringe…

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.25_[2016.05.13_09.10.05]

So Ikoma is basically telling us that all of the unnamed characters are going to die in this operation…

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.27_[2016.05.13_09.14.00]

…aaaaaand she goes to the boiler room, I’m guessing. THIS IS NOT HOW YOU DO FORESHADOWING.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.54_[2016.05.13_09.16.05]

Who’s surprised here?

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.58_[2016.05.13_09.18.36]

Part of me wants to forgive the boiler room thing because we get this action scene…I doubt the others could have contributed much.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.04_[2016.05.13_09.21.38]

Don’t you hate it when that guy on your team aggros the mob?

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.01_[2016.05.13_09.24.11]

No, Ikoma…you should be fighting. Let these guys do some of the work.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.55_[2016.05.13_09.26.12]

I’m so shocked right now…seriously, look at my face.

[HorribleSubs] Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.19_[2016.05.13_09.27.39]

I thought they were joking when they mentioned the Black Smoke earlier. The Kabane actually combined? That’s so random…

Seriously, who writes these episodes? Usually I’m pretty neutral, but this week’s episode was infuriating.

  1. I don’t see any real problems here, but then again I am old enough yet still quite relaxed about watching anime, compared to most people.
