A new best seller has appeared, bringing an old-fashioned love story into the digital age. I liked the enthusiasm the forum people generated and I did find myself rooting for him like I was one of the forum folks several times. Rather than a mischievous or malicious trick, however, the book often felt to me like an otaku wish-fulfillment fantasy: What follows is his attempt at romancing her when he barely knows how to talk to her! Drama television series Live-action film. The man who wrote admitted things about himself, such as the fact that his number of years without girlfriends equaled his age, that denzha was an Akihabara nerd and an otakuand that he had never been on a date. Later that night, Train Man left the boards for good.

Music 8. I loved that it is based on a true story, this makes much of the content easier to relate to. Much of the conflict in this series is completely internal to the main character, something I expected to get old, but as you see Yamada Tsuyoshi grow as a person it never actually does get old. His growth seems natural and believable, and this makes every conflict and triumph meaningful to the series as a whole. The small side stories all eventually tie into the end of this series leaving the end feeling complete rather than lacking.
Seeing some of the otaku culture is also quite interesting and really adds to the story. The acting was great, even for the characters with very extreme personalities. It left the characters feeling real even though some of the personalities were very off-the-wall. Music  - The music in this series while fitting, seems a bit dated to me. I liked very much that the ending credit song is tied into the story as well. Knowing the story will allow me to pay more attention to details that I may have missed the first time through.
Overall  - This series left me with one of those warm connected feelings at the end. I love the way the main characters grew together and how that growth supported the entire story. Overall, I would recommend this series to anyone looking for something great to watch! Was this review helpful to you?

Book[ edit ] Densha Otoko originated from a fifty-seven-day online conversation, from March 14 to May 16, that included a total of 29, posts on 2channel was edited into a six-chapter story, each called "Missions" of 1, posts and made available on the Matome site. Kodansha released the manga on June 13, Right, and we will live happily ever after. The reaction of Miss Hermes when Trainman belatedly shows her the log of his postings about their private affairs was particularly unbelievable to me. Far from being hurt or angry, she is impressed by what good friends he has! Then, just like in real life, a couple of days afterwards his hair is back to looking like a shorter version of his hairstyle before it got cut. A very small part of the story I know, but I really appreciated the effort at displaying realism.

This tale of life-altering love has been sold as an Internet book professionally-published paper edition of a story created and first made available online , a film, a serialised television drama, four manga series, a stage play and even an adult video. I argue that, along with changing the form of the book and furthering cross-media promotion, the protagonist of Train Man has encouraged more discussions about social expectations for Japanese men in the mass media during a time of falling marriage and birthrates than any other real personage or fictional character. Media discourses about Train Man reached a height in and when global fandoms of Japanese otaku culture grew and fertility rates were declared a national problem.
