Too much harem and less about trains and action. I actually liked the story. Character development was slightly good, nice ecchi, I have to say. But the imbalance between the harem and the story + action was what disappointed me. Rail Wars should've been more about the trains and the actions, not more about 3 or 4 girls who are after Takayama's d*ck. Sakurai's pretty hot though.

And I'm not sure If I'm the only one, but I see a production error in around 18:35 to 18:41 wherein there were dialogues but Takayama and Iida doesn't look like they're speaking, Or is is not wrong?

Well this was mostly a Takayama x Lida last episode, But ended in a harem ending.

I never thought this would turn into a harem series, but I liked it. Last episode I thought it would be a Takayama x Sakurai ending, but I was kinda rooting for Haruka too, so I'm relieved it ended that way.

I enjoyed the ride. Despite focusing more on the fanservice and less on the train action. Not to mention the degrading quality on some scenes. It could have been better.

7/10. I could rate it at 8, but Takayama is one lame main character.

Well I'm also glad that its over. This is one of the animes you forget after watching and move along.

Holy shit, this, as the final episode? Like, it felt so unnecessary / pointless. Another female character? Damn females love dem trains, maybe I should change my profession.

This is was good show. The last episode was lame with the broken AC LOL. But still quite enjoyable to watch. The characters were good but the plot was weak. Well this is a harem/ecchi anime so don't expect much from the story or characters just enjoy it. Overall, pretty decent 7/10

The chu chu express is over. Damn they wasted the potential that the show had - was this really an anime about trains? But ...

I gotta say.... This anime is the comedy of Summer 2014. For all the wrong reasons of course.

Now with that said, the anime was not good at all. It was forced cliche romance, forced harem, and Iwazumi not getting any recognition from any chicks. Its like when they were having a meeting on ideas for trains for this anime, they didnt come up with any good ideas. Until they said "FANSERVICE!!!!!!! FANSERVICE EVERYWHERE!!!!!"

Now I will say this, I enjoyed discussing each episode here. It was really fun. It was also really funny reading all the comments from each episode.


... it was actually enjoyable because of its bad parts. The name comedy of Summer 2014 fits it nicely.

And its over, Most of this show was so bad it was good, Haruka pissed me off though since I cant stand weak and clingy characters, At least Iwaizumi and Aoi were there to pick up the slack.

THe show turned out to be kinda lackluster . The coolest character was just ameat head whom hardly did anything but eat, the chicks were typical of harem gal typs and the main characer was just a dweeb. At times it was obvious that trying to amp up a quasi action comedy with innuendo and slight suspense did not work. Some times it did work on me. BUt all in all I was disappointed and knew I would be by the 6th episode. 6/10 for effort.

Hmmm, not bad as i thought it will be. No story whatsoever but it was entertaining enough to no let me sleep whole night. Genres and synopsis are out of place. There was not any odd character nor RJ group was in the anime.

This series was not at all what I expected it to be. I went in knowing nothing, and expecting a fun train anime... although it had it's moments, overall it felt like a lot of other harem anime. The ending was particularly ridiculous. I don't know many people who are that attached to their coworkers, haha.

I think the few episodes about the royal family will stay in my memory best (reverse trap!).

Thanks Rail Wars!

Overall I think this anime was pretty good. It has its moments but it's a nice change from other type of animes.

I feel sorry for Shuo all the girls paid attention to Naoto and he was left out cold. I hope there is another season, I will watch it and I hope they Dub it.

The only letdown here is Takayama, anything else I can tolerate, but not this guy. 5+(2 for the girls design)/10.

show was decent in the beginning, went trainwreck after ep 4/5 or so, with lots of meaningless random touching... and the art is kinda worse somehow

Well it was certainly fitting that this ended with Takayama surrounded by 4 members of his harem...and Iwaizumi who, to his credit, managed to actually have a presence in the second half of the series, small though it was. Anyway this was another alright series. I'd say it deserves a 6 out of 10, but I'm actually gonna give it a generous 7. Why? Well I dunno, I guess I enjoyed the cliche, silly action plots. Stuff like defusing a bomb attached to a dog carrier with the dog still inside, or thwarting the kidnapping of a prince(ess). It was all extremely unrealistic of course, but that never bothered me. The series looked nice too, particularly the female character designs which were all gorgeous. And yes, I watched the uncut version, so the big beautiful tits were certainly even more pronounced. Though honestly I think I'd still place this on the lighter side of the ecchi spectrum. And probably of the harem spectrum as well. For awhile I wasn't really sure which girl the show was setting up the most. I think by the end if I had to guess I'd say they were leaning hardest towards Aoi. Personally I found Haruka and her big, beautiful tits the sexiest. And her really farcical-centered episode 6 where she kept stripping was great. That said Aoi was certainly a bombshell with nice tits too. As I said earlier all the girls were bombshells. And that seems to be the primary audience for this show: ecchi fans and dumb action cliche fans. I guess train fans too. I appreciated the effort made to include trains more from episode 8 or so on, but I really know next to nothing about them so I could only appreciate it so much. I read alot of comments pointing out animation errors during the show, but either they cleaned them up for the uncut release or I just didn't notice. But uh yeah, that's about all for this. Except to say that as it turns out it will wind up as my 650th completed entry for here so...that's kinda cool I guess. XD

Butts in tight skirts and tits in uniform. Sakurai was great, but that's really it. I kind of wanted to like this, but was expecting something in the vein of old school cop hi-jinks. Even a show about train drivers might have been a bit more fun. A little disappointed, but appreciated the stocking and pantyhose scenes in the last two episodes.
