The "dream railway paradise entertainment" story of Rail Wars is set in a parallel world where Japan did not privatize its national railways. Naohito Takayama is an ordinary high school boy who dreams of a comfortable future working for the top-rated Japanese National Railways. He is assigned as one of the high school trainees in the Railways Security Force. Also in his group is Aoi Sakurai, a female troublemaker who hates men. On top of his sudden transfer, an extremist group called "RJ" plots to privatize the Japanese National Railways.
Yoshifumi Sueda (Haitai Nanafa, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood episode director) is directing the anime at animation studio Passione (Haitai Nanafa) with series composition by Masashi Suzuki (The Sacred Blacksmith, Shuffle!). Makoto Uno (Love Hina, The Qwaser of Stigmata) serves as character designer and chief animation director, and Sayaka Koiso serves as chief animation director and sub-character designer. Yuushi Koshida (Kids on the Slope, Last Exile: Fam, The Silver Wing) is the CGI director, and Yoshiaki Fujisawa (Love Live! School idol project, The Eccentric Family) composes the music. ZAQ will perform the ending theme song and Minori Chihara will perform the opening theme "Mukai Kaze ni Utarenagara."
The anime will premiere on Tokyo's TBS station on July 3.
