Crunchyroll's news article confirms the release date for this anime series, July 3. I'll edit the OP and update the Summer 2014 Anime Trailer Guide.

Pilot was um.. Bouncy! This will be something else for train fans an fan service fans. Seriously it was not bad. Moved along fairly fast plot wise. An had more action than expected. An was bouncy.

This episode was better than the first one. Aoi really should have been a police office, because she seems to want action. the fact that she learned how to disable a bomb supports this.

Naoto just wants an honest living helping the customers and doing his job, which is relatable. I also like that while he is not as gung hole like Sakurai, he will still do what he can to keep everyone safe.

This made watching them work together to defuse a bomb very interesting.

@Marshal Victory: bounce and butty.

3 was not bad. Shows really not about fan service at all. It does have the boob gag here an there tho. Kind of a lighter police series in a unique setting.

@LHWKnight: agree to with the comments ya made. The main character is not a ace, or over powered in the story sense. Hes got goals an they slip from him it looks like more an more because of his leadership skills.

Hmm episode 4 went fan service um service. Can a show about police for trains have a beach episode? Yes! Yes it can. So this was the in joke fan service service beach episode. Yes the harem train has left the station.

Not sure where the wars are in the series. But do hope for some deeper story lines. It always worries me when a anime goes beach episode this early in its season. Regardless of the actual yearly season its in. Sure you can argue summer episodes it would make sense to have them front loaded... um so to speak.

@Marshal Victory: The episode is rate A.T. XD

I was a little worried there, thinking he was about to be stabbed, but thank god he wasn't.

Takayama is getting all the girls it would seem.

Anyway I look forward to the next episode.

@LHWKnight: Its a unique show in regards of its mix of genes. Dare say its probably the only train, fan service, harem, cop anime. Some are missing to its a alternate world where the rails are controlled by the private sector. Just that part is not explored in the anime but in its summery.

Was not to worried about the knife cause at one point when it flies away there is no blood.
