  • I enjoyed it..maybe you will too!!!
    I'm a firm believer in public transport. A close family member works for the Department of Transportation as a planner. So, I am kind of a transportation dork. The plots are a bit thin, but I could tell the staff that worked on this anime believed in it wholeheartedly- and so I did too! It's better to assume your audience is as passionate and knowlegable as you are, then constantly explaining. ...

  • Train stations as men. Ooh la la~
    Really want to rate 4.5. Okay, this anime does something different, which I love. Lots of gorgeous men, but it's not a reverse harem. It's literally a train for girls who are in trouble. How much better does it get? I mean, come on. Plus, you get to learn about some of the popular stations when you watch it. Makes me want to visit Japan even more.

    Beautiful men - nothing else
    I watched the first 2 episodes with the hopes that it will get better and that there was more to it than a sort of a "tourism tool" for Japan's subway lines....I don't think I have the patience and I don't think it will eventually become better so instead of wasting my time, I just ended midway episode 2. Sorry, not for me...

    My Wish is to Have My Lost Time Back...
    Well, a simple, episodic plot can work...but it just doesn't here. There is no real overarching story until about halfway through, and even then, it's pushed aside for more filler until the last two episodes.
    The characters are stereotypical and cliched. We have a nice guy (Roppongi), a kid (Shidome), an uptight glasses guy (Tocho), a laid-back guy (Shinjuku), a somewhat energetic guy ...

    Bad role model for girls
    This anime is an odd blur of mundane "local" travel promotion and something more sinister: social programming for young women, to teach them to "stay in their place and smile quietly".

    We tried to watch it- I found it excruciating, and my guy actually pushed on to watch a tiny bit more, too busy laughing at how bad the sterilized host club stereotyped station personifications were... but that ...

    I wanna ride the miracle train.
    I LOVE this series! Its cute, funny and the characters are brilliant. I love that the various stations have taken human personas. I recommend this to any romance, shojo, kawaii anime fan or anyone looking for an anime that is nice and light and enjoyable to watch. I wish it was out on official dvd.

    Wow, when I started watching this, I didn't know it would be so good! ♥ The guys are cute enough, & I really like the overall plot and concept for the anime. This is definitely an underrated anime! c:

    Train Station: Great Show
    So one day I decided to check out some of the anime I'd enjoy on crunchyroll and I always scroll upon miracle train but never watch it. However that changed when I got really bored.
    It actually starts off really well. You expect something very super-natural here but the show looks very natural-very realistic and the feeling that the whole miracle train scenario would actually happen. I'm not one ...

    I expected to find it really boring, but ended up loving it!
    Okay, I'll be honest: the only reason I was even remotely interested in watching this was because KENN voiced Roppongi. That and I have a weakness for pretty boys, and those character designs are pretty indeed. Plus, the idea just sounded so absurd (anthropomorphized train stations that ride trains?? How does that even work??) that I was curious as to how they managed it.

    As it ...

    This anime was VERY cute
    I wish this series had a second season or something because it's so cute. The music may not be the best but the stories are all heartwarming and the characters are funny. The main point of this anime is the fact that good looking guys help ladies with their problems, the idea in itself seems a bit cliche but once you start watching it you can see originality shining through!
