THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Welp, the crew makes it out of that one. This little mini arc has a weird feeling to it tbh. They are trying to do their job and survive at the same time.

Not surprising that Aoi and Takayama got a few more close moments on board that train. They made quite a lot of daring moves this episode on that train as well. That took some guts. Otherwise, fairly predictable episode. Aoi, you should give him a reward

That ride was pretty intense, omega good job making it on time though. He had to add "a little bit" when he complimented Aoi *sigh.

The amount of luck K4 holds is vast. To be precise, their success rate in each mission rolls around 369%. Even if they lose first 300% of luck, the remaining 69% will save them.
And by them I mean Takayama and his two main side girls, since Iwaizumi doesn't count and will never.

Throughout the whole ride, both girls took turns in getting on some intimate moments with Takayama. That one scene where Aoi moves up to Takayama without an actual reason and barely gets saved was so cliched, it's cringe-worthy.
And of course, we have Haruka who barely has any balance at all. Maybe I outta feel bad for her because she probably can't hold herself straight due to her huge knockers. Very Kawaisou..

Iwaizumi is a friggin' beast! I like how he did most of the works and in return, got no words of praise from either of the girls. Seriously, what the hell!? -.-

Takayama complimenting Aoi and her cute blushing was the only good part this episode. Everything else = The value of Iwaizumi in this show. (Almost 0)

Lame episode. I'm tired of seeing Takayama getting all the spotlights lately. At least, focusing on Mari would be fun to watch.

They managed to get to where they were heading despite many different obstacles on their way there. This episode was okay.

No $hit! Bro, can't get an ounce of appreciation to save his life.

First he busts up his foot, gets his head bashed in, had the engine explode on him, and finally, tried to the stop the train Indiana Jones style, only to have part of it fall on him.

After all that not one damn word of concern from the girls!!! >:( Oh, Takayama got dirt on him so lets all coddle up on him >:(

MC has no redeeming qualities whatsoever! What the hell do they see in him!?

"B-b-b-but he's so nice!" BLEH! Incompetent is more like it. The instruction should've flunked his useless ass. If it wasn't for Haruka, they wouldn't even have made it.

Of course they owe Iwaizumi their lives, so he should get to cop a feel or something.

Gave it 5, would've been a 8, if I wasn't so pissed off that how they treated Iwaizumi the whole time. /soapbox /rage #uslessanimeMCs

You know what, they should do a Gonou-centric episode. I mean every girl seems like they have the hots for Takayama anyway and even if she's not going to be added in Takayama's harem, why not feature the hot glasses boss-woman?

That scene when Mari says Noa is her rival!! They sure are building up the relationship between Takayama x Sakurai and Takayama x Koumi, but dang, I'm hoping for more Mari x Takayama arcs!! ... and more praises for Iwaizumi! Lol!

Seems Sakurai and Takayama are finally starting to notice each other the main question remains will they become a couple before the ending of this anime or will we have another open ending.
The seen with the small locomotive was dragged out to much and the ending was already clear.
Still the pretty much wrecked the small locomotive in the process.

Iwaizumi gets hurt and crap, and they don't even look at his foot? Like he gets absolutely no praise. Takayama doesn't even really do anything, if anything, the other three members do it for him. Sakurai better end up with Takayama. Thought Koumi would look pissed when he practically hugged Sakurai.

Tho Iwaizumi deserves the harem more than Takayama. Who doesn't want a man who has six pack abs but loves eating and never gets fat?

At one point it just seemed like Sakurai just walked out of the train for no apparent reason, plot dictated Takayama do a near impossible grab to save her though! Iwaizumi must hit those protein supplements hard, he not only attempted to stop a train by pulling it but ripped off part of the locamotive in the process, too bad he didn't get any acknowledgment and easily went back to his food obsessed ways after it all!

Is anyone going to point out that he kicked the wall when the train was going super fast, not only that he jumped off a speeding train, slowed it down with his feet and proceed to rip the back off like it was a bit of paper.... pretty sure this guy is in the wrong anime and should of been in a battle shounen

Did Iwaizumi broke the law of physics, or he just disproven Newton, Where did these Chuck Norris feats of amazingness skills come from? He's a real bro

Aside from that, is that Sakurai romance I smell? I find her the most attractive. Good enjoyable episode.

I call BULLSHI....... you know what, I don't care anymore.
Iwaizumi just became Chuck Norris, Takayama is basically the anime version of Hugh Hefner. That mini-train is basically the DeLorian from Back to the Future (how the hell does that thing not fall apart during the entire train ride ONLY to have it's brake pulled off by Iwaizumi at the end???? Seriously, the only thing missing from this anime is a 60 foot T-Rex running around and singing the Barney song.

Koumi had an actual back story for this arc, I'm surprised!

Next episode of the X-Files please!

I'm calling it: Iwaizumi's the illegitimate son of Chuck Norris and Tsujimoto Natsumi.

But yeah, this episode required so much suspension of disbelief that my acrophobia started kicking in, and it really felt like it was in the wrong series. Hopefully they've gotten that completely out of their system now.

So much Iwaizumi strength this episode and it was glorious, now we know why he is constantly eating! As were the many Takayama and Sakurai moments. Takayama really brought his A-game in these couple of episodes, great qualities of a leader shone through, though still a rookie in many aspects he has the sparks to be a train driver. Excellent character development. 10/10 episode

So what happened? The past two or three episodes actually made this feel like a decent show. Aoi was annoying within the bounds of reason, there was a greater ratio of action and plot development to fanservice, and Iwaizumi was actually relevant and got screentime. Most importantly, the show was actually about trains for a change!

If the previous six or seven episodes had been like this arc I might actually like this show overall. Hell, I might actually have liked Sakurai. My only complaint with this arc is that it seems to have made it clear that basically every girl in the show likes Takayama.

Not this shit again.

Go back and re-watch episode five. If you still don't think Takayama has any redeeming qualities other than "being nice" then keep watching it until you understand.

At least the whole episode was on a train, so still its good.
