Tokyo trains get lightsabre handrails
Star Wars weapons charm commuters
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment Japan is celebrating the latest Star Wars release - the compete saga on Blu-ray Disc - with a funky campaign on Tokyo's train network, turning the handrails on trains into lightsabres.

Over here, the BT Tower was transformed into a giant lightsabre and hordes of stormtroopers littered the streets of London. But Tokyo commuters have been blessed with these glowing handrails instead, JapanTrends reports.
Now every passenger can feel like a Jedi as they scoot off to work. The Force is strong with this salaryman.
While entire trains are often commandeered in advertising campaigns over there, this is apparently the first time hand rails have been used.
Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-ray boxset is out now for £60. Read our views on it here. ®

Why couldn't it have been Chuo Chuo?
Use a blaster!
These are uncivilized times, so you know what to do.
You can go to any 7-11, Circle K etc and pick up "porno manga" .. its right next to the womens fashion and golf ball of the month magazines.. all the sexy parts are censored. Surprisingly enough different countries have different rules on what is acceptable and what is not acceptable.
If some guy wants to quietly read censored porn do you really care that much? Would you rather have people blasting rnb out of the tinny speakers on their phones, throwing rubbish every where, being gobby shits etc?
And to the guy that complained about getting pushed around etc... is there a train network anywhere in the world that doesn't have that. The london undergound has that, the tokyo metro has that, the paris metro has that, the bay area BART has that. I've never been on a municipal transport network that wasn't hell at peak times. Sure you didn't have "oh japan is soo baaad boohooo" syndrome?
The title is optional, and may include ninjas
They're probably ninjas, and are able to perform "specific activities" too quickly for the average human eye to even notice.
