Thanks to an unknown virus, a zombie apocalypse breaks out during the Japanese industrial revolution. The cities of the Island Hinomoto are called 'stations', and are connected only by fortress like steam trains. When one of the stations becomes overrun by zombies (referred to in the series as Kabane), the engineer Ikoma gets infected while testing out his new prototype steam gun. He manages to stop the infection from progressing by cutting off the circulation to some parts of his body by binding them with metal. From this point on, Ikoma is a Kabane/human hybrid, or 'kabaneri', and as it transpires, he's not the only one out there.
