Synopsis

The introduction of 7G Network technology promised miraculous technological advancements; however, the aftermath of its launch plunged Japan into chaos. From drastic changes to the terrain to bizarre mutations among people, the way of life is overwritten with new rules. The town of Agano is one of the few remaining settlements, and its citizens aged 21 and above have transformed into animals.

Shizuru Chikura, a high school student from Agano, is desperately searching for her friend, Youka Nakatomi. Coming across a picture in a newspaper placing Youka in Ikebukuro, Shizuru starts packing for a trip. But with public transportation effectively shut down, her options are limited. Fortunately, Tairo Zenjirou, a senile old conductor and the only human adult in town, comes to the rescue when he teaches her how to operate an abandoned train.

With her destination set, Shizuru ventures off on a journey to find her missing friend. On the day of departure, however, her other classmates—Nadeshiko Hoshi, Reimi Kuga, and Akira Shinonome—decide to tag along at the last minute as they embark on this one-track adventure that might expose them to dangers far surpassing anything they have encountered in Agano.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
I am not good at reviews, but this show deserves more reviews than it has, so here I go.

If I had to imagine what one of my favorite anime would be, it wouldn't have been a surreal post-apocalyptic fever dream with casual 'slice of life' anime vibes, but here we are.

Ever get that feeling when you're watching a new anime that you're witnessing the beginning of something special? Train to the End of the World gives me that feeling, and I haven't felt that in a long time. This show toes an interesting line because I'd say at this point that it's still ...

A man-made creation that has warped the world into a hellish place
a phenomenon that transforms humans into something other than human when they reach a certain age
a journey of a group of girls on a train through a post-apocalyptic world to find their friend.
this anime combines three plot points that could each stand alone as separate stories, yet remarkably, it works.

The story revolves around an accident where a 7G network warped reality, turning Earth into a post-apocalyptic world. In the subsequent years, the same accident also caused some humans to transform into animals that can talk. On the other side, a group of ...

The sense of mystery huh. After all, who doesn't want to connect to the 7G, and warp reality right?

Story and characters: 7
For starters, I will say that the show at first does take a moment to get used to. You might be thinking 'what on earth' is going on? Why am I watching this? But as the show progresses, you'll want to stick around to see more of it. Which is mainly done by it's pacing, and sweet characters, each layered through their personalities, and what drives them. Even if they don't come across as super amazing characters, but they don't need to be. They're ...
