「脅える屍」 (Obieru Shikabane)
“Frightened Corpses

It’s been so long since an action anime had me hooked from the first minute to the last. Not only is the art gorgeous, but the steampunk world is compelling, the violence is visceral and gripping, and as a premiere it did a better job than its spiritual predecessor.
