Default Densha Otoko? - 09-23-2010, 05:57 AM

Has anyone watched this? This is my next series after Love Shuffle. I'm on the 2nd episode... and it's a bit whacked, but in a good way. It's about a japanese otaku who falls in love with a girl he meets on the subway, who he saves from a drunken old guy. The otaku must be one of the dorkiest guys I've ever seen in real or make-belief life. And he solicits help from a chat board to help him in his endeavors. The internet chat exchanges (topic threads) are really neat and the show itself is really interesting, probably because it's about otaku life. This show is super corny (especially the dream sequences) but I would recommend it to anyone who considers himself/herself a true otaku or anyone who's ever had others look down upon their otaku stature. This series will make you feel good about being an otaku. Enough said. lol.

That anime is actually based on a somewhat true story.

Yup, a true story, although the TV series was an exegaration and something that was made up (Love rival part).

I liked it a lot. It was really funny. And Oguri Shun's character is flippin awesome. Be prepared for a lot of crying, as the main character cries in almost every episode.

I detested the live action, they tried to give the online public a persona which in my opinon didn't do just. Would've been better had there not been that personafication of the netizens. Props to the creepyness of the otaku though, truly played the geek well.

^ lol give the second ep ago, you cant really tell if its good or bad from just the first ep
though i do reckon that this drama was fairly decent considering it being based off that of a forum chat - which lasted idk how many months? o.O (or days)

The series gives off an awkward feeling now and then but i did appreciate all the akihabara stuff shown in the show. I just washed the experience down with a little gokusen, trick and gto.

that description is enough to turn me away from the show lol. The plot seemed kinda crap to begin with. meh, il pass. i really dont like it when people try to portray otaku, it only really works in anime, if done in live action i usually end up hating them.
