The official website for the Miracle Train ~Ōedo-sen e Yōkoso~ television anime series has begun streaming a 46-second television commercial on Monday. The Miracle Train project anthropomorphizes several heavily travelled train stations in Tokyo into young handsome male characters. In particular, the Miracle Train ~Ōedo-sen e Yōkoso~ television series will feature characters inspired by the stops on the Ōedo subway line. The Crunchyroll website has already started simulcasting the first episode on Sunday.
