Nankai Railway Collaborates with Gundam, Operating Char Aznable-Themed Train on the Rail

Starting April 24th, Nankai Railway is operating a Gundam-themed train to celebrate the 20th year anniversary of high-speed train “Rapīt.”




The train is beautifully decorated with a design inspired by the most iconic character from the series, Char Aznable. Rapīt, ever since its installation, has had reputation of looking like Mobile Suit Zaku. With the Char version operating, now it’s officially a Mobile Suit train.

It’s gorgeous to look from outside, but on the inside it’s even cooler.



It totally looks a vehicle to carry Neo Zeon’s officials and V.I.Ps!

Even train tickets are Gundam-themed. Japan goes all the way when running a themed event!



You can also buy a clear folder for 700 yen.



If you want to ride on this train, Rapīt operates between Namba Station in Osaka and Kansai Airport until June 30th.
