Miracle*Train: Anime hits a new low

Watch Episode 1 (legal simulcast)

Train stations (not trains but the stations) come to life as beautiful boys to help solve the problems of young women. I don't know what to say about this. Usually when an anime involves a single girl surrounded by 6 men on a empty subway train its just chikan gang-rape and, no matter how distasteful one finds that, it makes way more sense than Miracle Train ever could. Dull plot-of-the-week styling and random train trivia (Roppongi is the deepest station on the Oedo what?) are weaved with a thin premise. Why do stations have to manually search inside stations (themselves) to find a dog? How can Roppongi-san be running around inside Roppongi-eki anyhow? Stupid etchi shows are stupid but at least they have a goal and actually meet it.

I might keep watching this just to see if it can fall any lower....
