Ranka Wants You to Ride Her

Train that is...


Here is another thing that makes me jealous of everyday Japanese life. When I ride a train, I have to deal with homeless people pissing in the aisle, girls who ignore me, and then homeless people doing number two in the aisle. I would probably have the same problems in Japan, however, I would at least be able to see life-sized pictures of characters from Macross Frontier pasted to the side of the trains.

These are located on Tokyo’s Yamanote line, and are advertisements for the new Macross Frontier movie that will hit the theaters in a week. Check out some pictures of this blatant advertising I have nothing against, hell I will pay you to put some of these decals on my house!

I thought this was going to be a totally different article being the whole "Ranka wants you to ride her Train that is..." seeing as the first thing that poped into mind was it's going to be an article about two ronery otaku calling an ambulance after complications arose when attempting to ride a train on a Ranka bodypillow.
