Ikemen are making their debut on the Japanese subway’s Oedo Line. A number of major stations are getting their own characters such as Roppongi’s Fumi-kun, Tocho-mae’s Saki-kun and Tsukishima’s Izayoi-kun.
The project is called “Miracle Train” and involves the Ikemen characters being displayed at the stations and on the trains. Maybe I need to get down to the station and grab a few live shots?
The term Ikemen has been popular in Japan for some time, meaning good looking cool guys. Is this phrase from いけている面, literally meaning ‘good looking face’?
The train project is connected with the upcoming TV Tokyo anime series that will start soon called Miracle Train.
Anyone heard anything good about this anime starting on Oct 4, 2009?
