Why was there any confusion from the get go what Takayama wanted to be?

Why was there any confusion as to who caused the derailment in the simulator? It looked to me like she either didn't know the signals or was just ignoring them.

Why is it so impossible for Takayama to say something like "I was sent here by Nana and didn't know who would be here?"

Still got trains. That's what this anime is good for.

Voice actors are different.

Seriously, some one needs to punch Aoi already. Lord knows she has it coming. But unfortunately this is animeland, where law dictates that she's the one who's going to end up with Takayama despite all her bad behavior.

The 'T' in T&A stands for trains.

Wtf this episode was just ridiculous. Aoi can somehow use her weight (assuming she is 100~ pounds) to sway a train car back on track....

Episode 8

I actually found this episode kind of awesome. Sure you could make all sorts of complaints about realism, but it was at least still very fun and some intense scenes. I have been a little cold on this series, but they managed to actually make it exciting this time and I realised I was enjoying this.

How it was spoiler[reminiscent of a rollercoaster] was quite an effective build of tension.

I guess you can say. . .

*puts on sunglasses*

. . . That she was the caboose of the train.

Cool

YEAHHHHHHHHHHH.

But really, she does have a very fine ass. It's the most enjoyable part of the show.

Episode 9.

So what exactly was that EB 421 car actually built for? From all the troubles it had it looked pretty much useless for anything on those mountain rails.

Going downhill is one thing -- but it is supposed to go UP that hill from someone inside pedaling it? The car and four people in it must weigh most of a ton! Even one of those classic two person rail carts with the see-saw handles on level ground are a lot of work.

Those girls sure like to cuddle up with Takayama. Why doesn't Iwaizumi ever get any?

I was thinking it was for inspecting the rails. it moves slow enough for that.

Iwaizumi doesn't appear to be interested in women, just food. the guy had no reaction to anyone in their bikinis a couple episodes back

While I'm a fan of the cliched lead guy/girl shipping, I do agree some should punch Aoi. Honestly, I do see Haruka doing the punching. We've seen that she is a potential yandere attitude, so I don't see it being out of her character to punch Aoi.

The way Aoi is, I think that she was abused by men growing up or taught to dislike men because her man-hating attitude to me implies that.

Episode 10

Maybe it is just me, but the art felt like it was a step up in this episode. I started thinking about it when they were just showing the train terminal, it looked a lot like an actual one, and all of the train compartments also looked well done

And.... spoiler[It's a trap]! A spoiler[reverse one] this time, which I am kind of annoyed about as I really did not feel that we need spoiler[another girl falling for the train obsessed lead, but at least she] is not that bad. I was thinking that spoiler[her name sounded way too feminine].

And what about that one scene where he spoiler[saw her underwear and had an imagination spot of him having yet another embarrassing walk in scene]. An okay fake out that made me have to watch back.

That's a really really odd way to end an episode.

Anyways, I think the biggest surprise wasn't the culprit but the spoiler[gender of the prince.]

How many naked girls can one train hold anyway?

I've been on lots of trains and never seen a one.

Come to New York City, we have plenty of naked girls (and guys) hanging out in the subway.
