If you ever get to visit Japan, I think you'll find trains are a very important part of modern Japanese life, and not just for convenient needs.
Some people who went there described the train lines and the trains itself as a kind of "beauty". The feelings it gives must be very special to be liked so much.

Kind of odd thought to have when I saw those, but if Japan were ever to fall into another war, those trains would be a huge asset.

I absolutely love those comparisons of the real places and the anime.

Here's one with some train stations scenes:


I wish I had time to look for more of 'em

Haha I posted that same picture of those comparisons a while back.

I just don't see how people can be foolish enough to have more wars after so many things were learnt from it. War is just... pointless, it's pathetic.

Hmmm, since war has been beside us since the begining. It's a bad thing, but not pointless. War's are not fought for pointless matters.

You missed my point. I know there are always reasons behind wars, no matter how big or small. What I meant was the wars itself is pathetic. People can't think of other ways to settle things apart from conflict and violence.
