Wow, what a voice cast! And it's being animated by Yumeta Company, so we know they're old-hat with bishonen-filled series of this nature. Didn't they do the Haruka adaptation, too?

I like moe boys, and this is not moe boys.

WTF? Trains? I guess I can check it out for the lulz.

The one that broken teenage girls like best I'm guessing.

Still it looks like it could make a fun series. I can only wonder which characters will be the focus of the inevitable BL jokes.

I'm not familar with internet memes, but I believe I'll watch this for the "lolz" is appropriate here.

So, when does the first episode air? :]

Er, yes, I though "moe" inspired a feeling of protectiveness. Are we supposed to be defending them against hordes of fangirls?

Being a sucker for a bishie though, I may watch out of curiosity.

Sounds interesting but I hope it's better than Marginal Prince (actually, it'd be difficult not to be-- I watched one whole episode of that one before moving on). I am sort of curious if they're gonna whip up some actual plot, or if it's gonna be random slice-of-life type situations (whatever that would even be for a train-boy).

I think you mean lulz but I'm guessing it will be for the fall season.

According to the creators on their website, Miracle Train is a "new project that is a fusion of moe and trains." Moe has a broader definition in Japan than what is described above, although at least one commentator, NewAkiba.com (NSFW), differs with the Miracle Train creators on this.
