Synopsis: The "dream railway paradise entertainment" story is set in a parallel world where Japan did not privatize its national railways. Naohito Takayama is an ordinary high school boy who dreams of a comfortable future working for the top-rated Japanese National Railways. He is assigned as a trainee in the Railways Security Force full of odd characters such as Sakurai, a troublemaker who hates men. On top of that, an extremist group called "RJ" plots to privatize the Japanese National Railways.
QUOTE (Norren @ Jun 13 2014, 06:40 PM)I'm going to check out Rail Wars! because I think the LN character designer is one of the people I follow on pixiv... I recognize the characters and recall all of his art of them had publisher copyrights stamped all over every corner of the images.
I prefered its preair over Sabagebu's, which reminds me to a series I dropped... btw is it just me, or the bouncy girl acts and looks like Kotori from Brynhildr?
