Let’s Look:Rail Wars! Episode 6 Super Mini Review Version:Do You Understand The Meaning Of Keeping Your Clothes On Koumi?

Wow this is a lot of Fanservice. It almost makes me say it’s too much and that’s saying something.

So after the events of Episode 5 and all the random stuff that happened, Naoto, Aoi, Koumi, and Iwaizumi are put on home stay for a week. So Naoto hangs out his room with Mari and she goes on about how he saved her and how cool he is. She’s technically right since even though Aoi fired the shot Naoto was the one that thought of the idea.

So after Mari leaves Naoto checks out the mail and finds a death note…not really the best word for me to use. It’s not Light Yagami’s Death Note. It’s more of a threat note.

So he calls Aoi for some help but she doesn’t answer. Side note. She’s apparently out of the house too. These guys don’t listen…
So Naoto calls and goes to meet up with Koumi but while heading to meet with her Aoi sees them and follows. After seeing the letter, Koumi guesses it must be from an accomplice of the accomplice of the bomber. Try saying that five times fast.

So they try to call Aoi to warn her and she picks up but the wind carries her phone out of hand and it breaks. Koumi and Naoto just jump to conclusions and assume that the guy got Aoi. Seriously…have you seen this girl in action?

Anyway they run away again, guessing that the accomplice is after them now. Aoi spots them again as she walks out the cell phone shop and she shoots at them. Why? Because Aoi’s a jealous tsundere in her tsun mode. She misses and hits sometype of toy and Koumi and Naoto think it’s some type of sniper fire.

They run and jump a fence, landing in some cat food/catnip. Which of course draws cats. Now this is where things get stupid. They think they’re assasin cats…so they think the cats are tracking them. How? Because when Koumi took off her jacket the cats jumped right on it. Did you ever think that you fell in cat food?

The little cat chase continues with Koumi getting more and more stripped down. Nothing I mind of course but come on! Where’s the plot! They end up hiding in the Transportation Museum and it turns out someone is breaking into the museum!

….why? What could possibly be in there that anyone would want to steal? Anyway Nana and Gonou get the call that the place has been broken into and they head over with Aoi who was already tracking Koumi and Naoto.

They fight the thieves and they win. But before the end, Koumi asks if Naoto remembers something that happened over eight years ago. Turns out that Naoto pulled Koumi out of a closet she was trapped in when she was little and that’s why she cares about him. Turns out too that he’s the person that inspired her to join JNR.

So the episode ends with everyone figuring out that the note was an advertisement for life insurance.

Now that was just a suckish episode. It had no plot and the fanservice meant nothing to the episode. I’m giving this episode 2/10 because of bad plot, pointless fanservice, and just nearly useless to the anime itself. The only good thing was that we learned why Koumi likes Naoto.

So I personally can’t wait for the next episode. Apparently Iwaizumi is actually going to show up. That’s always interesting.

Until the next review,
Later days.

Let’s Look: Rail Wars! Episode 5 Super Mini Review Version: Critical Cuteness

Too cute to be stopped. That is what Aoi Sakurai and Manami Numakura are in their simplest and most pure form

Episode five of Rail Wars is called “Quit Staring”. Now this is episode is a lot different from the ones before it in that it’s an episode focused on Aoi and Naoto.

So Aoi takes Naoto to the gun range which as you all know is kinda of an interesting place for a well endowed woman like Aoi. Why? Because her boobs jiggle with the recoil! Then they go to the paintball range and Naoto ends up getting a lucky shot on Aoi…between the legs and pays for it bad. By bad I mean she just shoots him in the face with a paintball…ouch.

After that we get some information that the bomber that tried to blow the Tokyo Station(before his bomb got stopped by a few teenagers and got owned by Gonou) had an accomplice and now they need to keep their eyes out for him.

And what happens next? Aoi and Naoto run right into him. They follow him onto a train fairly far north but end up loosing him in the dark. Then they’re ordered back to Tokyo but since they’re no more trains leaving they stay the night at the station. Now this is interesting because Aoi got wet earlier in the episode so she takes off her clothes to dry and Naoto gives her his shirt. So we get a good look of her long sensual legs….drool

That’s highly unprofessional of me….Aw when did I care about being professional here. Anyway, because he stayed the night with Aoi, Naoto misses a trip he was going to have with Mari Sassho. In the morning they see the accomplice try and board a train. They chase after him but he leaves a bomb on the tracks. It goes off and blows the tracks while he gets away. However thanks to Naoto’s quick thinking the on coming train which ironically has Mari on it is saved from a derailment. After they get back, Aoi insists that Naoto have more training at the gun range and Koumi gets angry at this for some reason. Maybe she wants him for her self.

And that’s the Mini Review. Hopefully the sixth and seventh episode reviews will be out as fast as possible.

Edit: I’m writing this on August 14, 2014 and I just checked where I get my anime from and they just put up Rail Wars Episode 7. So it’s been a week so Episode 6 is now going to be a Mini Review. Sorry guys I really want to do it the normal way but this is the only way I’ll be able to catch up. Even with Glasslip not on the roster(Thank God), I’m still a little bit behind. But rest assured that I’ll be back to the normal version of reviews soon.

I’m really liking this episode because of the good fanservice and you really get a good view of Aoi. You start to see that she’s falling for Naoto.

For Episode 5, it gets a good review of 8/10 for good plot and well done art and fanservice. You also get some good stuff about Aoi’s character which is always good.

Let’s Look:Rail Wars! Episode 4 Super Mini Review Version:Super Idol Chihara Minori-Sama!

Hey everyone it’s Deven once again! I’m back to give you some good reviews. Unfortunately I’m seriously behind. So just like all the greats laziness is the mother of all inventions along with creativity. Thus was born the Super Mini Review. I’ll write maximum of two paragraphs and put most of the story telling on the pictures. So here it is, the first Super Mini Review!

Ah our Idol Demigoddess, Chihara Minori-sama!

Episode four of Rail Wars is called ‘I Think I Like It’. Now if you love yourself some hot fanservice on the beach with your girls in bikinis and tight one pieces, you’ll watch this episode until you die. Because that’s everything you’re getting here. The JNR Idol Noa Kashima is singing in(fill in the blank) and since she’s this years’ spokeswoman and she’s speaking about the JNR she gets protection.

Who does she get? Our heroes of course(it wouldn’t be much of an anime without them). During a practice session, flash paper is burnt as a threat to Noa. Oh I forgot to say that someone’s threatening our poor super cute idol. So what do our heroes do? They get in their bathing suits and watch the place for anything suspcious…that’s what the guys do. Nana, Aoi, and Koumi they just look sexy. That’s all they need to do.

The next day after Noa’s performance, Ah I love hearing Minori Chihara’s voice. I have so many of her songs on my iPod it’s unreal…, the criminal disguised as a member of the stage staff rushes the stage, trying to stab Noa but Naoto takes the blade instead.(He’s fine though) Thanks to Nana’s quick thinking they were able to play it off as a part of the act and everyone goes home happy. After the end of the episode it looks Noa Kashima is falling in love with Naoto. Add another to the harem. We’ve got Aoi, Koumi, Mari, and now Noa. Let’s try and rope Gonou and Nana into the mix.

Now it’s time for the pictures!

And that’s it the first of possibly many Super Mini Reviews. Now know this. I will not make every review a Super Mini review. I know you guys like my normal style of reviewing. These types of reviews will only be for when I’m falling behind. So if an anime’s more than a week late on the review it will be a Super Mini Review. That’s it!.

Until the next review and the next episode,
Later Days.

Let’s Look: Rail Wars! Episode 3:Triple Shipping Wars!

And another cute girl arrives to start up the Shipping tides! I’m still Naoto x Koumi.

We open up with two girls sitting around in the snow with a microphone listening to a train pass by.


So cute…

After the opening Minori Chihara is such an awesome singer and now the opening is out on HikariOST. Check it out!, we have the same girl with the mic in the snow on the train.

Wow she’s really cute.

So anyway Naoto comes in and greets her and we found out that they’re apparently friends. Her name is Mari Sassho.

Mari teases and calls Naoto senpai and Naoto gets confused because they’re the same age. Mari says that he’s a month ahead so it still counts. Naoto says he may have been only working there a month but it feels like he’s been working there a year.

So they reache the Tabata stop and both of them stop to listen to the trains race to the Tokyo stop. Their train wins.

So after Naoto gets off the platform we see this:


Oh Aoi-chan…

So someone asks for Naoto’s attention but guess what? He doesn’t speak Japanese. He speaks English.


Oh I always love these types of parts in Anime because most of Seiyuu can’t speak English. They can do those occasionally Engrish words but not full out English. The only Seiyuu I know that can speak English is Sayaka Oohara, having passed the Pre-1st grade in STEP Test in Practical English Proficiency. I don’t really understand but apparently it makes her a fluent English speaker.

Okay did my research. 1st grade doesn’t mean like 1st grade school level speech. It’s the top tier of speaking English in Japan so that means that’s Sayaka Oohara is one of the most fluent English speaking Seiyuu

Back to the story, predictably Naoto panics but luckily someone comes by to help.

Snapshot_6 Snapshot_7

I’m shocked on two levels. One Koumi knows how to speak English and two Maaya Uchida has really good English.

So after we go back to the K-4 where Aoi’s writing out a apology letter to the criminal that she owned. Why did I use owned?


Just a tad bit extreme, Aoi-chan.

So after that they go to the cafe where the entire team tries to figure out what to have until Naoto and Aoi have an argument over Aoi’s constant snarking until the waitress comes.


I don’t know why I feel the need to say this but her boobs are pretty big but not as big as Aoi’s, Nana, and definitely not as big as Koumi’s.
Okay after some quick introductions on everyone’s side, we switch scenes to Naoto and Mari at some bench near the water.Wow this seems a lot like a date…

There ya go bro! You had her eating out the the palm of your hand and you blow it!


Oh he’s been doing this for awhile has he? It’s still creepy even if you think it’s cute, Mari-chan.

After a second of musing if he’ll be able to make a living as a member of the public safety crew, Mari brings up Aoi and wonders if she should be a member of the crew with the way she is. Now that’s a legit question but she says it very timidly. My shipping instincts tell me that she’s got a crush on Naoto! Now it’s a three way battle for Naoto’s heart. I’ve got my money on Koumi personally.

After that we flash to the next day and we see this.


Vile fiends! They tied up the legendary penguin mascot of the National Japanese Rail Company!
Turns out that Nana isn’t going to be in today so apparently they need to put a stuffed penguin in her chair…anyway.

Koumi comes over to Naoto’s to give him some papers to sign. Simple right? Not when you have Moeness that rivals Mikuru Asahina!


It’s so sad that she can do this just by leaning over. I’ve seen girls try way harder on purpose and get nothing. Maybe because they aren’t as hot Haruka Koumi?


That’s what happens when you get too much hotness with so much boobs at the same time. You can’t take it and fall over.

Anyway turns out that Naoto gets a call from Mari that her friend, Kaori, is missing. Kaori…does she forget her friends each week and you have to reforge your bonds over and over again. Was she in an anime that was a romantic one in a way but had no romantic conclusion with any of the couples? Nope. Then she’s not from Isshuukan Friends.

Okay now that I’ve had my fun let’s get back to the story.

Mari tells the crew that Kaori went to some station to record some train sounds and hasn’t been seen since yesterday and hasn’t been answering her phone.


Wow he sounds so heroic like right now!

Snapshot_22 Snapshot_23

Wow he sounds all shonen hero on us but now the Rail Wars crew has to deal with an enemy more deadly and dangerous than any other.


Truly terrifying indeed…
So begins the look for something suspect via the reports.

I’d have passed out a long time ago. Just looking at books like that would make me a bit drowsy. I’m serious and I totally tell you no lies.

So while they’re looking through the reports in the other room, the sexy Capt. Gonou is preparing to move out to deal with some radicals. Just another day as the head of the riot police.


There can only be so much good looks in one anime. Lucky we haven’t reached our quota here yet.

So after the Riot Squad leaves Nana comes in and asks if they’ve made any progress to which they haven’t. I don’t blame them. Looking through books all day. It’ll make a lot of people tired and unfocused.

So Nana asks if they want to add more groups to help them search the records but Naoto says no and goes to the bathroom…he’s going to come out with this huge idea. Why? Because all great ideas were born in a bathroom! I came up with most of my book ideas on the toilet…too personal back to the story.

Anyway after relieving himself, Mari comes to talk to Naoto about what’s happening with the case. So far nothing but they’ll keep looking because that’s their responsibility as members of the public safety crew.

After that the girl’s whose name I can’t remember comes in and asks Naoto to come with her. She’s the only flat chested girl in this anime that should tell you who she is. She’ll stand right out!

Then Mari’s cellphone rings and the other girl recognizes the ringtone.


Looks like they found her cellphone when one kid found and started playing with it. Don’t you hate that? Back when I was a kid, every kid and their brother asked if your phone had any games on it. Anyway they don’t where she was because the mother of the kid didn’t see where he picked up. So we’re at a dead end right?


Wrong! Super smart and super sexy Koumi works her computer magic and manages to find some sound files. Now this is a mess up on the studio’s part here.


So they have like fifty files but they act like only one is important what’s up with that? Then Koumi just outright lies when she’s asked is that the only file.

Snapshot_34 Snapshot_35

Looks like there’s no need for fear because Mari taking a listen. Also in the background, Aoi and Naoto argue about how he should be able to figure out which station she was at from the smell. I’m not even sure if a dog could do that…

Then using her awesome hearing, Mari figures out what station Kaori was at last.

She’s got better hearing that my mother and she can hear a pen drop on a carpet a hundred feet away. Yes I have tested that and it’s true.

We flash to the station and it’s freaking beautiful. Things like this make you remember how beautiful Japan is. Also note that a large amount of Japan isn’t modernized because of the tough terrain. So they have a lot of nature where most countries would have cities.

Snapshot_40 Snapshot_41

After that traditional look around Koumi and Aoi ask how did Mari know which station was the right one to go to.

Dogs are deaf compared to this girl. This girl has a freaking superpower she’s so good.

So after that they begin searching starting with some warehouses near the sea.

Snapshot_45 Snapshot_46 Snapshot_47

After a few warehouses Naoto and Mari hit the jackpot and find Kaori.


Wow they worked her over good. That’s why I try to avoid beatings. I can’t take them well…

So after they find her they cut off the ropes and try to get away but of course this is Rail Wars so there’s got to be a fight somewhere.


Unfortunately they didn’t show it. Darn. No more sexy Aoi fights.
So after that we cut to Nana and Gonou basically giving the wrap up and explaining that the crew won and saved Kaori. Also Gonou herself is really interested in their development. Sounds like some spots might open up in the Riot Police when they’re ready.
We close with Mari thanking Naoto for all he’s done.

Snapshot_51 Snapshot_52

And they end the episode with a salute.

All in all, I thought it was a good episode. I think that they could have amped up the tension and the interest level by actually showing the fight but hey. Whatever right.

I give this episode 6/10 for failing to follow through on what they sent up.

Looks like the next episode we’ve got all the girls in bikinis and the crew’s protecting a famous idol. I can’t wait.

Until next week,
Later Days
