    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES
    “RAIL WARS!”

    HOUSTON, July 5, 2014 – A new recruit will learn the ropes on the field when his new job goes seriously off track in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Rail Wars! This comedy action series is directed by Yoshifumi Sueda (Knights of Sidonia, Pocket Monster XY) with series composition by Masashi Suzuki (Hayate the combat butler! Cuties, The Ambition of Oda Nobuna), art direction by Yukihiro Watanabe (Love Live! School Idol Project, A-Channel) and animation production by Passione ( Haitai Nanaha, Little Battlers eXperience W).

    In a world parallel to our own, Japan’s national train system is united under the illustrious Japanese National Railways. High schooler Naoto Takayama is one of many who dreams of someday becoming a driver at the JNR. When Naoto manages to snag a job as a trainee for the Railways Security Force, he thinks he’s finally on the fast-track to success. However, Naoto’s expectations are quickly derailed when he finds that he has trouble telling who’s crazier- his coworkers or the criminals he’s supposed to catch! But when RJ, a shadowy group with sinister motives, appears to seize control of the JNR, it’s up to Naoto and his motley crew to get things back on track. Will Naoto and the rest of the Railways Security Force be able to pull the brakes on RJ’s scheme, or will it be the end of the line not only for their team, but the entire JNR as well?

    Rail Wars! will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

              The show looks like a good candidate for a dub. But yeah, it would be best if you convinced everybody to watch it to increase the odds.

                  I'm surprised this isn't getting a dub considering Sentai as of late dubbing the shows that weren't very good and giving the subtitle only treatment to the better ones.

                    Guess it just wasn't bad enough and most likely didn't garner enough buzz (negative or otherwise) to warrant one.

                      Why no BD on Rail Wars?

                      This is one of those titles that falls in the "hold back period" category, which, if you're new to this column, means that for some reason or another the blu-ray version of the title can't be released until after a certain amount of time has elapsed. Although there isn't a blu-ray disc release date set for now, I can assure you that we are trying our best to make sure that it will be out as soon a possible. We thank you for your patience!

                        One review on Rightstuf page said it is censored on home video. Can anyone verify this?

                          Someone in the Retail Forum answered a similar question and it's apparently just some panty shots I believe.

                            Here's couple links (NSFW)

                            Volume 3


                            And all articles about uncensored on Rail Wars Japanese home video.

                            It's just some panty shots? Well, there's more than that.

                              This is for sake of verification.

                              Got R1 DVDISO. And yes it is censored.
