New show to air this fall is the anime adaptation of an internet meme webmanga: Miracle★Train. Catch the first look on what this is all about~
[Update: 08/10 - Added Trailer]
The previously announced anime adaptation of Miracle Train, the anthropomorphization of Tokyo’s train stations, will premiere on Japanese television under the name Miracle Train ~Ōedo-sen e Yōkoso~ (Miracle Train: Welcome to Ōedo Line) in October. The young male characters are named after and inspired by several heavily travelled train stations in Tokyo. A web manga and a novel version already started in March.
The first version of the Miracle Train project focused on the stations of the central Chūō line, while the new anime and related stories deal with the Ōedo subway line. As a result, the anime will feature a newer cast of characters — specifically, Fumi Roppongi, Rintarō Shinjuku, Izayoi Tsukishima, Iku Shiodome, Saki Tochō, and Itsumi Ryōgoku. [ANN]
Animation Production: Yumeta Company
They’re behind some quite-popular bishie-filled shows such as La Corda D’Oro ~primo passo~, Neo Angelique Abyss and Harukanaru Toki no Naka de.
Characters: Roppongi, Shinjuku, Tsukishima, Shiodome, Tochou and Ryogoku respectively.
Well since it’s a show with bishies, bishies and bishies, it’s no wonder why I’m already sure to check this out. Yep~ The premise looks definitely funny and LOL @ the anthropomorphization thing. It totally reminds me of Hetalia Axis Powers, but this time it’s about different train stations in Japan. What’s next? Airports? Anyway, since it’s basically targeted to the female otaku community, for sure this will be filled with BL jokes XD.
Err…. Yeah. Silly, isn’t it? But that’s not an excuse for me to ignore this one because this has bishies XD!!! Hell damn yeah bishies! Though it’s actually called more of a “moe boy” that it got me more ridiculously curious XD even though I can’t find any one of them moe at all >.>. Haha~ !!! Definitely checking this one out for the LULZ only and bishie fix.
Catch Miracle Train this October!
