Senseki Line "Mangattan Liner" trains[edit]

A Senseki Line 205-3100 series "Mangattan Liner" trainset is decorated with images of the cartoon character Robocon from the 1970s anime Ganbare!! Robocon, while another ("Mangattan Liner II") has Kamen Rider livery. Both were created by Shotaro Ishinomori, a native of Ishinomaki, Miyagi; Ishinomaki Station is the terminus of the Senseki Line.

Withdrawal and resale[edit]

Fuji Kyuko[edit]

A number of former 205 series trains were sold to Fuji Kyuko in 2011 and modified to become 3-car 6000 series sets, entering service from February 2012.[7]

Indonesia[edit]

Former Saikyo Line 10-car set HaE 26 on a commuter service in Jakarta, September 2014

18 ten-car 205 series EMU sets (180 vehicles) formerly used on Saikyo Line and Kawagoe Line services, were donated to KA Commuter Jabodetabek (KCJ) in Jakarta, Indonesia, in 2013, entering service from March 2014.[8] The sets in use are former Kawagoe sets 1, 4, 7, 11 to 15, 18, 20, 22 to 26, and 30 to 32. All except sets 26, 30, and 32 include pairs of SaHa 204 cars with six pairs of doors per side.[8] Sets 30 to 32 were originally Yamanote Line sets, distinguished by their smaller door windows.[8]

From July 2014, a total of 176 cars from withdrawn Yokohama Line 8-car sets were shipped to Jakarta.[9]
