First Look: Miracle Train

miratrain2

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.

I can’t wait for the seiyuu announcements. The ones in ANN are not yet that official though, but I do hope we’ll have Kamiyan and Miyu Irino here <33.

Bottomline:

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!

    HOTNESS! Can’t wait till this show is out :kyaa2:
    I wonder if its goona be good as Hetalia?

  2. Ashelea says:

    Ooh~ This looks interesting and fun! Count me in everything bishie-related… Or “moe boy”.. Ehm, is that in the same category as bishounen already? :?: ANN is so confusing with all their news.

    But anyway, looking forward to check this one out! I agree that it’s kinda like Hetalia but with less and limited characters.

  3. auntiebin says:

    another pretty boy harem!!! :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

  4. Well.. I’m sure to check out, as you, it’s contain bishie~ :kyaa:

    But that doesn’t really mean I might love it after a while like Hetalia as I got quiet tired of it due to the less of history joke and more of those “guys” joke that annoyed me a little! (Sorry Hetalia fans, but I do like Hetalia in some point.) So I hope this one will be good. Really hope Labrador and Shuuri umm.. I mean Kamiyan and Miyu Irino is really with us on this one or maybe more awesome people could join too <3

    … First Hetalia, now this?! I’m NOT LIKING THIS TREND, PEOPLE. *is not a fan of anthromorphized!places into boy harems*

    Sigh. I’ll just step aside while all the fangirls come running over this piece of oh so very exciting news now…

  6. Himeko says:

    I LOVE Hetalia so I’ll definitely love this one for sure :kyaa2:

  7. Xiao says:

    Miyu Irino as one of the seiyuus = DO WANT. :aww:

    lol “moe boy” That almost sounds like a dangerous combo. Moe + bishie…ok, I’ll stop. xD;
    I’ll definitely be checking this out, too. What is this supposed to be? They can turn into trains or something? :P lol

  8. Llora-chan says:

    I’d totally check it out if Miyu Irino was one of the seiyuus~~
    I never watched Hetalia, but I think I’ll be on board with this anime~ (Oh, darn… No pun intended~)

  9. Ayumikat says:

    Hey Ho! Count me in! I’m boarding this bishified train ride, snacking on BL filled jokes… :lol: Actually, their names already sent me into peals of laughter…so comical. Riding a train will never be the same again…not when the mind has a different connotation attached… :blush2: I think mine just went to the gutter…:doomed:

  10. Unlike Hetalia, I’m not sure if I can relate to what they’re based on since I have no idea about the trains in Japan o_O

    I love bishies, but I’m not happy with how La Corda and Neo Angelique have turned out to be. That got me worried.

    but of course I’m still checking it out xD Hehe.

    Will definitely check this one out! I just hope there isn’t gonna be some stupid female lead that would turn this to a reverse harem or I’ll be pissed. Leave them bishies alone in teh BL heaven (or “station”… in this case XD).

  12. warriorhope says:

    What’s next? Airports?

    Probably anime studios. lol. It’s worth watching even though I don’t expect Hetalia from it.

  13. Moon-Dash says:

    Ah~ Both Kamiyan and Irino are gonna be there, so did that lighten up your hopes? :smile:

    Also, there’ll be Ryoutarou Okiayu, Kouki Miyata and Hiroyuki Yoshino :love: This seems to be a promising one, I guess :smile:

  14. […] kanzeon was one of the first ones to check this out, and is already going moe over the bishies. […]
