He listens Train Sounds for fun?Well thats not creepy at all...

Lol at Iwaizumi making random push ups,i love that character,he dont give a f***k while Takayama hangs around having sexual moments with all the trains and girls throughout the series...

The only thing good about this show was the fanservice and good art...But after episode 3 i think they stopped caring and they almost stopped drawing...Weird faces an limbs everywhere,lol you cant drop quality of character design like that from a fanservice show,its all you have....

I suppose it's my fault for expecting too much.

It's too bad that this series went the way it did. Instead of focusing on trains and the railway network with a few action/comedy/ecchi elements once in a while, it was an ecchi harem anime with the occasional train/railway topic. They didn't even try; it's some of the most generic stuff I've seen.

I suppose the animation quality wasn't terrible.

5/10

OMG that scene where the pretty blonde conductor is thanking him...
She bows way to close to Takayama. Where is your face going?
Her hat falls off.
Takayama is looking down and blushing.
"Ah~!"
She gets up from her knees and tells him to "enjoy the ride"

Moments later another train employee calls her the "head conductor".

Why is this show tagged as ecchi? Just your standard amount of fan service counts as ecchi these days?

Anyway great episode to end a fantastic series. Got more of Iida this episode and nice to show how far Takayama has come, now he instinctively wants to go and help where he sees a possible problem arise. Also very nice to see the team still working together even when they are apart. 10/10 episode.

10/10 for the series as well, extremely enjoyable, unique premise, good action and a good plot though no real overarching plot, well there kinda is but we got more mini arcs, expected for the start of a series Hoping for a season 2.

Well, not really looking forward to anymore anime by Passione. They didn't even bother animating mouths during some scenes when they were talking.
Decent Ecchi, I enjoyed watching Aoi though!

I figure people will be hating on the show for a while, just like they did with the first season of Infinite Stratos. If it sells on BluRay/DVD, a second season will show up just like IS.

Great finale with plenty mechanics and trainporn which was the best so far followed by some Lida service
It ended the harem way as expected, Takayama's room looked great with the railway map as his bedroom poster and other trainstuff

A sequel or OVA coming from this would be surprising unless they planned a special :P like "Princess Lover" did

This anime had an identity crisis. It didn't know whether it wanted to be a serious action show about trains, or just your standard fanservice, harem show. When it focused on the action and trains, it was boring; when it ramped up the fanservice, it was just too tame. Let's be honest: most of us went into this show for the fanservice, and on that front, it was a huge disappointment. Bad anime. Lame final episode.


All I know is, if you enter a career having to do with trains, women will throw themselves at you. I don't know how true that is, but I trust anime.

Didn't care for one single character, but I only continued to watch this for fanservice anyway. 5/10.

Let's have a season 2 of this mindless boob-fest!

On second thought..... hell no, I'd rather watch harem shows with actual substance like Trinity Seven and Madan no Ou to Vanadis!

Thank god for October's lineup!

Not sure if this is worth a 4 or 5/10. Compared to another crappy show this season (Glasshit), at least Rail Whores did not try to be something that it was not. It exploited all of the characters, forced fanservice shots in any scene possible whether it was serious or not, and had some decent episodic stories. So I do commend it for not being complete shit.

The last ep was underwhelming as we got no real closure.

This series falls into "ordinary ecchi" category as it really tried to do nothing differently. It was pure average in everything it did.

What a waste. Even with Sakurai in it, I can't give it a passing score or call it average.

4/10.

Everytime Takayama rides a train, or at least those last few trains he rode always ended in trouble, like seriously. If anyone noticed that, they would probably forbid Takayama to ride a train ever again. That Iida is just too nice I guess.

Poor Iwaizumi :( I really hate Sakurai, seriously. I'm sure Iwaizumi is smarter than Sakurai, he just had a bad start there. I mean, what dumb-type character doesn't talk much or at all? And when she heard Iida called, why the hell did she assume that Takayama was getting into trouble again? What kind of friend is she when she doesn't trust Takayama one bit?!

Takayama's expression at the end though xD Wtf?

Overall, I'd like to give this anime a 3/10, but since I'm feeling generous today, I'd like to give it a 4/10. This show had great potential, yet after halfway through, it was ruined by the terrible animation.

Worst Anime this season :(

The only thing we learned from this episode is the Takayama needs to be tied down whenever he is on a train else he will start causing trouble for the staff.

The biggest problem with this anime was that the best character Sakurai wasn't the main, instead we ended up with some terrible harem MC again who doesn't understand woman.
And frankly 3 of the 4 girls there where after him where just way to good for him especially Sakurai.
To me this anime was all about her it was the only reason i watched this.

Sakurai? The typical bitchy tsundere that's heavily overplayed on fanservice? Boobs and no substance? surely you jest

Name me one legit character that was good quality wise in this shit anime...I'll wait

That was a boring episode, like most of this anime was. Most of the characters were meh except Iwaizumi (and Sasshou). Didn't like this episode because I really don't like Horie Yui's voice in this anime. Holy crap it was unbearable. Stuck around to learn a little about trains, at least I found it interesting. Can't say I retained any info, but still liked those parts.

This was a boring episode, but the anime (along with a couple of others) killed the Summer season for me this year. I wasn't even expecting to watch an anime that'd be worse than Pupa, but I guess I was wrong...

Yeah, if Iwazumi was the MC, it would have been a better show. I wouldn't even mind if the girls wanted his dick because he's actually attractive.

That was an awfully.... underwhelming end. After disarming bombs in the second episode, catching assassins and taking 3 tasers to the face (lol wat), they end with his rather boring trip back to Tokyo spiced with ADD and nosiness. Did they really use Iida's pantyhose as an elastic belt for the engine's fan? Who thinks up of these scenarios i don't even

But that sudden decision to communicate by telepathy at the 18:40 mark was interesting, so it's got that going for it, which is nice.

7/10 because the fanservice was glorious. The two episodes where they had to transport the organs were really good honestly and I wanted a full show like that but .. it didn't happen. Takayama is so dull and annoying as MC, and what the hell was that in the end? Everything must go wrong where he's around, that ain't funny bois.

Iwazumi is the best character and he's obviously gay.

I think you mean brain dead, cause if anyone was expecting the story of the century and super amazing animation, that's what they are even worse actually but we need to keep it pg 13 here.

Anyone notices the animation error in the Takayama and Iida's scene when they arrived to their office? They were talking but the mouth didn't move.
===============================
Anyway, pretty decent show. The studio really ruins it, because the Novel is far more better (Takayama isn't a wimp here). Really, my sole reason to follow this show is just for Aoi, nothing more.

I cracked up at that "Aomori"... don't know why. Finally, I won't have to hear that OP anymore.

This guy can't sit down.

Yeah, don't forget Iwaizumi. Among the best characters in this show.

Whay is this feeling...? Am I, by any chance, sad? I am gonna miss this show. Its weird. I mean I was a huge fan when it first aired but then it suddenly got weak around episode 4-7, then it got very good and now it finally has a decent end. It could be even better but oh well.

7/10, wouldn't mind a 2nd season.

Eh, decent show, lots of boobs, and rear. My favorite girl from his harem is Iida, I felt like they were natural together. Takayama sure has bad luck with trains. From one problem he goes to another, and so on. The guy just can't have a break. Takayama returns home, gets time off to rest, and meets up with Noa. Somehow the gang is in the house, most likely Aoi opened the door using some pin lol.

6/10

3/5

Disappointment mixed with regret, an anime that I wanted and I was waiting but I was disappointed because they have overplayed his hand with situations filled with ecchi and harem everywhere.
Not bad trains, but the rest to start from the designs of the characters are really ugly.
The story could also be good, na you always flowed in awkward situations and ridiculous.
The characters could have a really good characterization, but is focused on other things, too bad!
The soundtrack, insiema to openine and ending are very beautiful and useful, I hope do the work of a radical change in the BD version.
For now, I can only give as ratinga 6.5/10!!
