Episode 5

She called him out on sexual harassment? What about her spoiler[barging into his room, pinning him against a wall, positioning herself in a way that would show her panties, and suddenly undoing her skirt]? Baffles me how she can have the blame thrown onto him. And with modern times if it really is a problem then surely they should be able to have alternative attire to incredibly short and tight skirts.

And in the episode, the guy at least seemed to be making mostly the right decisions, and her listening to him seems to be improving things.

That escalated pretty quickly...

I wonder if spoiler[Aoi is really developing feels for Naoto] though? It is possible...

So they identify a dangerous suspect and have to spoiler[tail him from morning until after dark and not once in the whole day does a backup detail show up to detain the guy?]

I'll say Sakurai spent a lot of time this episode pressed up against Naoto.

And what's up with Sakurai getting flustered while looking at Haruka's butt?

Episode 6.

Looks like I'm just about the last person watching this. Don't know why it isn't that bad.

But ... they wanted to make a stupid episode and they succeeded at that admirable. They wanted an excuse to strip Haruka and I guess that was a win as well. She didn't seem all too upset about it and that's unusual enough to make it worth watching.

What I don't get was why they were all suspended. Was it something that was happened in Episode 5? I thought they won the day as heroes then.

I think its because they went after the guy even though they were told not to. And the whole bomb exploding scene.

This Sakurai girl is sure a menace to society lol. Why does she still have a gun? She only got to borrow it last week because she convinced the leader a gun was necessary because of the terrorist. They are also suspended so I am surprised she got to keep the gun.

I can think of at least 4 reasons.

But yeah, Aoi is too crazy to be allowed to have a gun. I mean, sure, if the show took place in the US that'd be normal, but Japan has smarter laws regarding gun control.

yes, those are nice, but tits alone aren't enough to get me to watch or keep watching something. I guess I still find something about this show entertaining.

...Well I for one just love the good silly fun this show provides. Its hard not to like a show that has spoiler["Cat Assassins"] that unintentionally help them come across criminals.

Episode 6

They really raised the stupid bar for this episode didn't they? Seriously these romantic situations wouldn't bug me if they didn't have to literally make the laws of nature conveniently force them into getting closer. Heck they even had to pull out the childhood saver cliche which only serves to cheapen the romance even further.

Point is: Cut the contrived BS and I'd be ok with the romance. I've got to say though I'm actually starting to get tired of this silly action every week since I have don't really care about the pairings anymore.

Now i suppose someone is going to tell me I'm taking this show to seriously? Well let me answer that. Yes I am Wink

But it's not enjoyable in a "It's so stupid it's funny way" anymore when I'm literally facepalming every minute of the episode. I know they have to try to make a show about trains interesting but I'm actually hoping for a much more subdued episode sometime in the future where trains are actually the focus not some crazy thugs or bombers showing up every second.

Like most other people here I was kind of astounded at how utterly stupid episode 6 was. I mean, even by this show's already generous standards for stupidity, that one exceeded my lowest expectations. In fact, it just might be the stupidest episode of anime I have ever seen. And I've seen some pretty stupid anime.

I guess he hasn't seen any episode of Chu-Bra. Or for that matter the Sailor Moon remake going on now.

My take is they were trying for entertainingly silly and blew it. They ended up with annoyingly stupid.

I have seen Chu-bra. It wasn't great, but there wasn't any episode I remember that was more stupid than this one. I'm enjoying the current Sailor Moon remake (I have never seen the original).

Episode 7

It looks like his harem has.... gone of the rails. *booed loudly by crowed*

Hey, at least it is being honest now in the characters being part of a harem, and it feels much better for it. Haruka is getting increasingly daring which is more interesting than she had been so far as the moe innocent one. Aoi is increasingly agitated, and Takayama asking if she was part of his harem like that felt fresh. Add in waitress and idol to make sure these characters are actually interested, and I actually enjoy it. Not that I am the sort of the guy just wants to watch a harem fantasy, but level here felt refreshing. I think Haruka is the most interesting, because so far she has made it less complicated.

Also Aoi's spoiler[decision to not listen turned his dream of successfully driving the train into a failure, a train wreck. *more booing*
I hope that is what her letter mean with sorry, and kind of surprised no one singled her out.]
Might be just me, but I was thinking the spoiler[trainer looked a little like the guy that saved him].
