This series deals with our main character who just wants to be a conductor in the Japanese National Railway. He goes a little offtrack and becomes the squad leader of the Tokyo central Railway Public Security Office Fourth Viligance Squad. There with his squad go in several adventures, disarming a bomb, escorting a singer and then a prince and so on. Don't understand why this is called Rail Wars because there is no War here. Maybe in the manga (is there a manga?)
So, each episode is met with his adventure and the boobs of his collegues. There is no nudity in the movie but a lot of touching (each episodes Naoto falls on top of one of them, or both).
Each female character, plus the singer and the prince who turns out to be a princess, develops a romantic feeling for Naoto (lucky bastard) and he only wants to concentrate on the trains. I think by the end of the last episode his feelings are only to Sakura.
The story is set on a Japan where the railways were never privatised and Naoto wants to be a driver so he goes training with them. I really enjoy the theme since I enjoy Trains so much and sure would love to travel on a train ride that last for days. But, don't get me wrong. The series falls short to want promises. The light novels deal with a groupf of fights to privatise the railways but here nothing of that he shown (maybe one or two situations). Instead we get a drama, comedy, boobs, ecchi, fan service, boobs and a boy dealing with a harem of boobs, sorry, girls.
One point of interest is all the information we get on trains, the models and series and differences between them. The animation is of a high standard and the 3D trains fitten with the characters 2D...
Should I recommend this to you?
If you like trains, or if you are Sheldon (Big Bang Theory) then go for it. If you enjoy anime, there are a lot better out there. Again, don't watch this for the boobs, there are some side-boobs or akward situations with them but no nudity. Go see something else... or an uncensored version of it (don't know if it exists).
