Well, here it is. Looks just like the second iteration of the 521 series operated in the Hokuriku region, but with different color accents. The red represents Itsukushima Shrine's gate, as well as the fall foliage of maple trees, and, if I understand this correctly, it's the color of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp baseball team. First I thought this meant the actual fish, but apparently not. This will run on DC only. They expect to have 43 cars in service this year, and a total of 276 in service by 2018, in 64 3-car formations and 42 2-car formations. They'll be used on the Sanyo, Kure, and Kabe lines. Hmmm, I wonder how the new Osaka Loop Line rolling stock is coming along... I think this design is quite nice, although those things meant to stop people falling between the cars look a little funny on the ends. http://railf.jp/news/2014/06/20/130000.html
