This is an amazing -true life story manga about the author. Boy meets girl, boy knows nothing how to court girl-so he turns to community message/chat board for advice and support!!! I adore the drawing-especially the panels, where the other chatters are reading the poor guy's posts. It is like their cyber soap opera-which they get to be interactive with.

Excellent book! Follows the story of nerdy "Train Man" who meets a beautiful girl and saves her from a drunk. What follows is his attempt at romancing her when he barely knows how to talk to her! Luckily for Train, he has an online forum where he posts all the latest details of his romance and asks for advice. Very cute manga. I liked seeing all the different people from the chat forum group together to support Train! :)

I rented this because I loved the movie Train_man (which is what Densha Otoko means). This one is cute, though the art is simple and unspectacular. Also, I liked the movie more because the characters were in their twenties - I think in this they're like high school students, and look like ten-year-olds. It's cute enough though, and only 3 volumes, so I'll probably rent the rest.

I've been meaning to read Train Man (the novel) but the books is so expensive and i tried searching for an ebook version but failed so i tried reading the manga version instead! I liked it! Such an interesting story. I will try and read another version of Densha Otoko (and by another version, i meant another illustrator: Hara Hidenori)
