It took me a while to pick this up since there were lots of episodes from different anime that piled up. Some of my friends also mentioned that it may not be a good one even if it is full of bishies. The first time I read the summary of this, I was not able to understand the connection of Oedo Line stations and those bishies.
The story started in a straight-forward way. Every episode explains the main plot at the beginning and have featured bishie/station. The problems of each ladies who became the chosen passengers are closely related to the featured station. Viewers can also learn something about the train stations in Oedo line as there are tivireas about them mentioned on the series. The plot is simple since the theme is slice of life, the audience can also relate to the characters.
The characters design are your usual bishounen.
Tocho Saki, the serious- type and the leader of the group.
Fumi Roppongi- the romantic type.
Izayoi Tsukishima – the literature lover. <3
Shinjuku Rintaro – the care-free type.
Ryogoku Itsumi – the history freak.
Shiodome Iku – the youngest and the timid one.
There are also other characters like
Shaisho – the train conductor and the one who always wears a mask, and Akari (I don’t have a picture of her, sorry) the passenger’s guide and Tokugawa, the train dog (don’t have a picture of him either).
These are the other pictures.
So, will you fall in love with a train station? 😀
