Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is a 2016 anime series directed by Tetsurō Araki and it is steampunk in tone and setting. Ian contacted me and suggested it as a “Vamp or Not?” and it was a good call.
The primary creature within the series are the kabane and, on the surface, these fit the mould of the zombie and we have essentially a z-apocalypse in a feudal Japan that was just passing into the industrial revolution. This has led to walled cities (or stations) linked by a railway line with travel between the outposts by steam train only.

|apocalypse, streampunk style|
If there were just the kabane then I think we’d lean towards zompires but the kabaneri are definitely vampire. They are stronger and faster than humans, they need blood to survive and they are derived from something that produces the undead. The imdb page is here.
