posted on by Egan Loo
Keihan Railway announced on Friday that the "Ho-kago Tea Time Train," inspired by the upcoming K-ON! film, will start service on the Ōtsu line on Monday. Wrapped with graphics of the four girls in the K-ON! anime's high school band, the train will run from the Ishiyamadera station to the Sakamoto station in Ōtsu City until late December. In commemoration of the train, Keihan will sell special tickets at the main Ōtsu Station starting on August 28.
Like the two television anime series that preceded it, the K-ON! film was inspired by kakifly's manga about the everyday life of the members of an all-female high school band. The film will open in over 130 theaters in Japan on December 3.
