Another version of Miracle Train: Chuo-sen e Youkoso.
The first version of the Miracle Train project focused on the stations of the central Chuo line, while the new anime and related stories deal with the Oedo subway line. As a result, the anime will feature a newer cast of characters—specifically, Fumi Roppongi, Rintarou Shinjuku, Izayoi Tsukishima, Iku Shiodome, Saki Tochou, and Itsumi Ryougoku.
I will begin with saying the plotline of the anime, when I first heard about it, sounded pretty lame. So I didn't have high expectations for the show. The beginning episodes are a tad bit boring because you have to begin with introducing each and every character [in this cause train stations] and each station goes about teaching the viewers history about Japan's Oedo Line.
Quite interesting, but quite confusing to someone who doesn't know much about the Japanese Culture. I will admit I learned A LOT, and googled a lot of the information given to me. I guess this would help out anyone who wants to learn more about the train stations and cities on the Oedo Line, and their unique culture for each stop.
I did, however, grow tired of the series around episode 6, but I always continue on watching a series until the end. So the series may be a bit slow, but it gets INCREDIBLY GOOD by episode 8. The passengers and the problems do get more emotionally and the story begins to twist a bit. There really is more to this "Miracle Train," then it sees fit.
So even though this show might not be everyone's cup of tea, I found it quite wonderful. And I just love the way each station handles the problems of each passenger that needs it most. I know this series might draw more girls to it because of the handsome train stations [w/typical stereotypes of Japanese men in Neo Romance anime], but it also has a good plot. It's not just another series with pretty men, it tends to be more than that with deeper meaning.read more
Being a sucker for animes with bishies, I expected Miracle Train to be one of the best to be anticipated last Fall 2009. Unfortunately, it failed to meet my expectations. The sad part is I had to drop it after watching 5 episodes. I only watched it til its 5th since I thought it’ll have some developments, but again, no.
Oedo-sen e Youkoso or simply Welcome to the Oedo Line focuses on 6 guys who are actually Oedo train stations. They are some sort of a host club, in a train. They help ladies who are troubled and they’re the only ones who can see and get inside the train itself. In every episode they help at least one lady to clear away her worries.
The story and character progress is close to zero. It keeps repeating the same story every episode. A worried girl accidentally gets on the train, then one train station guy being focused in each episode, gets to help the girl, the girl thanks the guy then the train leaves. What can be more worse than that?
Well, enough of the trash. Aside the fact that Miracle Train is boring, there is at least one guy that kept me interested, Roppongi Fumi. Besides having good features and being random, I liked his choice of words in his episode. The other guys were just too dull. They were flat and not to mention, too predictable.
Miracle Train have the potentials to be a good anime. It just lacked development and thrill. The plot of guys helping girls is just so overused that they may want to give spice on it to give the viewers a different feel. read more
okay so i will start my review with how i got into this anime first i saw the anime when searching for something to make me laugh i saw the title and it caught my attention then after reading the summary i was only attached to the fact that unlike normal when there is only one girl and everyone is after her this anime has a different girl each episode with different types of troubles
story : anyone can say from only the summary that the story is so lame but if you ignored the hole station thing with the guys it could look pretty good just like a slice of life anime where a couple of guys are helping people through their troubles , the troubles in the anime are normal troubles that could be found anywhere and with time they tend to get more emotional also the anime has a good sense of humor
art : well it`s obvious that the anime depends on the bishies factor more than anything so the art itself is very good though it`s not extraordinary
sound and chracters : the voice actors did a very good job with the acting actually but the chracterstics is just the normal type nothing the could make it especial we have the strict guy with glasses ,the mysterious manager , the cute guy with earings (lolita type ) ,the calm and collected guy all the normal types that are found in harems all the time
all in all i give the anime 7 for the art , sound , and the emotional troubles read more
Based on some of the reviews people wrote they said they didn't like it much or dropped it after a few episodes but i loved it. The story was interesting, the characters were unique, and it was just amazing. :D I suggest it.
Eavh charatcer was unique and was intresting to see how they would handle the passengers. The last episodes that take place during christmas time are the most enjoyable. The last episode, i thought, could have been better. Or atleast have one more to wrap up. Over all it was a good one to watch. I finished it over a weekend :P
