After last week’s boob filled episode, could Rail Wars actually do something that doesn’t involve those female body parts?
Well, no, they can’t.
Here’s my review.
Like most eps of Rail Wars, we start off with some trains rolling around a track, but also like most eps of Rail Wars, that’s about all the train action we get in an ep. That said ep 5 was nothing out of the ordinary in which we start off with a train, this time a model one inside Takayama’s house, going around an elaborate track, only to crash into Sakurai’s boobs.
If you’ve made it this far I’m sure you were just shaking your head when this happened. Yes, a model train crashed into her boobs. I’m not joking and those pics don’t lie. Like I mentioned multiple times last week, I don’t have a problem with boobs in this anime, but there is a point where we just need to stop, and I think the guys down at Passione haven’t fully realized that they passed that point ages ago.
So to continue that trend through this ep, there are many scenes in which Takayama and Sakurai are placed in these awkward, upskirt shots, boob touches/pressed against him, ass doing something, thighs… yeah it’s pretty much showing off just how sexy Sakurai is. You’d think that after seeing her last week in a swimsuit, we’d have understood that she’s got a very nice body, but the animators must be taking into account that we watched that ep last week, and since then we’ve forgotten how hot Sakurai’s body is, thus they give us this.
If you’re a Sakurai fan like I am, then yes this is amazing! More Sakurai the better! I loved this aspect about the ep as it was just glorious to watch Sakurai, but the fanservice did start to get just too much and unnecessary by the ending.
Believe it or not though things happened in this ep, the main event being the return of the bomber from ep 2. Yeah remember that event? Well turns out the bomber had a friend working with him, and he’s still at large and still a threat. As luck would have it, Takayama and Sakurai happen to run into this guy and the episode long chase ensues.
Since the overall issue isn’t super exciting, I should just end the review here and spend the rest of the time talking about Sakurai’s boobs and ass, because those really took center stage in this ep. So like I mentioned, we’re about 45 seconds into this ep and trains are bouncing off her boobs; wow that must be a record or something for that to happen to soon into an ep. Following the OP we get right back into the action, no not trains bouncing off boobs, but we’re at the shooting range. Finally some guns!
Takayama as we all know isn’t exactly up on his aggression like Aoi is, so she figures it’s time to put him in shape, so we’re off to the paintball course. Yeah apparently there is an indoor paintball area, who knew? So now here Sakurai is just shredding up like she always is; honestly she goes hard with everything she does. It’s like me when playing soccer, all or nothing. So in the end, Takayama lands a pretty solid hit on Sakurai, hitting her in the thigh (if that were a real bullet, she’d die of blood loss most likely) thus ruining her tights in the process. Annoyed by this, Sakurai unloads the rest of her clip into Takayama, winning the round but losing her tights in the process.
This however would work to the viewers favor as we’d all enjoy seeing Sakurai’s tights later on in the ep. But before we get that far, let’s take a look at a few gifs.
So on their great cross country chase to catch the bomber, Sakurai and Takayama get into a few tight spots along the way, providing us with more fan service.
But in the end they finally catch the bomber, even if he did blow up a small part of the tracks in the process.
And even Iida had something to say about getting some upskirt on Sakurai too. Yep, she approves too.
Let’s take a look at some screen shots from the ep now.
So there you have it, a failed attempt at a review for Rail Wars ep 5. Honestly at this point it’s just all about Sakurai’s boobs and ass, nothing more, I’m not sure I’ll be able to really write an actual review for the coming eps as the plot of this anime is just…. well for starters there really isn’t that much plot. I’m not dropping this one though, as I’m watching only for Sakurai at this point, so I’ll stay to the bitter end.
If you’re still watching this one, what are your thoughts on it so far? Like it? Hate it? Who’s your favorite character? Let me know in the comments! So before we get to the bonus pic, lets take a look at what to expect next week!
