Excellent first episode. Everything I could have hoped for. I thought the episode was pretty straightforward at least for Ikuhara.

The two boys talking about Campanella and the other passengers is a reference to night on the galactic railroad. It seems he might have drawn a lot of inspiration from that story for this one. I can also see the train being a metaphor for fate, predetermined stops until the final destination(death).

I have no problem with him kissing her in the sleep as long as it as that's where it ended. I'm having bad flashbacks to Utena on that one. I'm also wondering what that phone call he had at the aquarium was about. Something tells me its wasn't on the up and up.

Loved the transformation scene, op, and Ed. Really looking forward to see some of the other characters, they all look interesting especially loving the Juri lookalike.
