Great first episode. It's really neat to see trains, combat, and romance go hand in hand with each other. I really liked how in the beginning they showed the hands on training, the hard work, and the actually theories being put into practice when Naoto, Haruka, Iwaizumi, and Sakurai were chasing the purse snatchers. The combat and the teamwork from those 4 really was amazing to see, and they each played their respective roles according. Best team of the year? Who knows? But they do look like it.

I know it's one episodes in but it seems like we're about to touch upon a potential love triangle between Haruka and Sakurai regarding Naoto. It seems like Haruka has someone she admires... I wonder who that could be?

All and all great first episode. I'm still stoked on how well this episode hooked me. Can't wait for the next one. One that note: Sakurai kicks lots of ass!

It's pretty good for now. As said before, every one of them has a particular strength which would probably play a bigger role when the bigger threats come.

OK, so silly question but - why do we not just pick up the phone and call the conductor's car and Ootsuki station to tell them there are bad guys on the train?

Why didn't they call the security guys of the next station to help them???!! That was the question that came in my mind.
Passing your duties to another station is irresponsibility, I guess. And besides, these thugs can just reason out by saying that "these kids don't know shit and we're just ugly-looking passengers".

I did find the whole steam train segment odd they were using such small shovels. Normally when I've seen footage of steam trains they're using great big shovels to shove the coal on. Maybe this is a Japanese thing.
Naoto has mentioned the very reason for that: by using smaller shovels, coal can be introduced in smaller amounts for combustion efficiency.

I thought they said they had to go to the range 50 times per year. Maybe I misheard.

The MC is annoying as hell..... How many times can you get caught staring before you learn to do it better?

That's some serious animation error there! Oh well, let the studio fix that through BD release.

Watching the first episode reminded me of the old Monty Python sketch about a mystery written by a train fanatic. I kind of wish the train mania was dialed down a little in favor of developing the characters a little more, although I guess I can say I did learn something watching this since I didn't know what "EF" stood for before

hey guys, I'm wondering if the MC guy is a fighter type?

also, are there hints of romance?
if so, who's shipped with who?

I know it's only the first episode, but..damn, i heard it is similar to Ben-to, but i don't recall yawning at least 3 times on the first episode of Ben-to...

Not really much of a fighting type, at least as of ep 1.

Hints of romance would be both lead girls with MC, though there are hints that the clumsy genius has a bit of a past with the MC. The red head and self proclaimed man hater seems to be well disposed to MC and perhaps slowly warming up to him?

As for shipping per se please spare us.

Nope, not the only one. ^^

I was one of the ones who said there was something about it that vaguely reminded me of Ben-to, but it was just a dim comparison that popped to mind is all. Apologies if I contributed to muddling up your expectations somehow....

I like the series, but it is definitely a bit of a no brainer and just "entertainment" stuff for me so far - a guilty pleasure series, if you will.

Not really, that role's reserved to Shou and Aoi. Koume is the "database" (sort of like Hyouka's Satoshi+Eru) while Naoto is the strategist.

Quote:

For now, it seems that Haruka has a past encounter with Naoto, while Shou seems too bro to be attached to anyone.

It is a bit excessive in explaining the technical details of trains as a machine and as a form of transportation, but it's not that bad.
Ben-to is a bad comparison because it never had any technical detail exposition. This series is a less serious take on Library Wars, but with the locomotive transportation industry as a core.

well that's rather disappointing for me, I somehow wished for him to be a fighter( or maybe a strategist too at the same time)...it seems like this series will take pride in its action scenes but if the mc guy isn't going to be part of it *sighs*oh well
...how about the novel though? is he going to be cool?

I loved trains as a child, so I think I'll enjoy this.

The first episode was a lot of fun, and it has oppai. So I am pleased.

Well, i saw it on MAL Rail Wars page that Ben-to is in the recommendation part of Rail Wars, so i thought it's going to be a similar anime with over the top fighting and all that, but yeah, it is pretty different now after i finished the first episode.

But i'll still give this anime a try until 3rd episode, if i still found it bad in the 3rd episode,well...time to put Rail Wars on the list of few,FEW animes that i dropped...

Trains....
There were some interesting characters in that class.
OMG, the boobs ^^"
This is an awesome anime for train lovers who like fanservice.
It's just not my kind of thing.
I'll be skipping this one.

What a surprise! I expected nothing from this show, but I got an enjoyable 24 minutes.

Illogical? Sure: they should have just phoned ahead to have other security people intercept the thieves at the next station. Fanservice? I guess it shows how far gone I am that I barely noticed the human fanservice. The train fanservice, on the other hand.... The yellow inspection train was the star of the show, lol.

I liked the voices and the characters. Nothing too over the top. And a main character who, while not ridiculously strong, is serious and capable in his own way.
