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


Really? The moment I saw the prince spoiler[I knew it was a girl. We can't any guys ruining his harem]

I think I've mentioned before how fascinated I am by the decisionmaking surrounding censorship. The raws I've found (presumably the TV broadcast) have been more censored than the CR stream, which is unusual. This episode, though, even the CR stream had an interesting moment of censorship (where dining car girl gets her skirt flipped) that wasn't censored in the next episode preview of last week's episode. It seemed downright mild compared to what has been shown before, even within the same episode.

Episode 11.

I never heard of an industrial-scale engine that didn't have an emergency shutdown switch.

And how did it keep running once it was detached from the generator care? Weren't they on the non-electrified section?

Nice bit of totally gratuitous unnecessary nudity there.

Episode 12 (final)

Takamiya really wanted to look at that caboose, if you know what I mean. Well Rail Wars is over, and an alright chill episode.

How should we talk about this series as a whole? I quite like the ED song, did not look it up before but it is apparently done by ZAQ, the band behind a lot of the Chuunibyou songs. Most train stuff went over my head in the series, the harem aspect felt tired, and there were some breaks in logic. But the series did have some interesting parts, some problems were that one girl who would not listen in being part of her character, and I guess I can name some episodes that did rather well. Animation was not the most terrible, and there was some good work with tension.

Not sure how much I will remember this series, probably bring it up to make jokes about trains and think of it as another series that fell into same old harem tropes. I rate the series Decent, sure it was not exactly great, but I did not lose my time watching it, it stopped itself from being terrible.

That's a bit harsh. It was actually an A- on the train pr0n, C- on the ecchi, C on the action, and only really an F where they do things like wedge a tripping breaker to the ON position without finding out why it is firing.

Yeah I won't be watching it again either.

Meh, I didn't hate it but it did become one of those shows I watched mostly so I could appreciate the fan art and doujinshi.

Aoi still needs a punch in the face, but I guess she got a little better.
