Densha Otoko, or The train man, is the most recent Japanese drama I watched. Its basically a love story between an otaku and a rich beautiful girl named Saori. The term otaku is in Japanese which means a person who loves anime so much and become obsessed to it. Densha Otoko is based on the purportedly true story of a 23 year old otaku who intervened when a drunk man was harassing several women on a train and one of the women is Saori.

Densha Otoko is an example of an otaku who really suffer from not being able to socialize properly and trying to change his life to become worthy to the girl he loves. He’s too shy to talk to anyone especially to the girl he fells in love with.

These are the list of the casts:

* Saori Aoyama – Misaki Ito
* Tsuyoshi Yamada – Atsushi Itō

* Ryoko Hashizume – Chizu Sakurai

I really like the originality of the story of densha otoko and also because its based on true story. I’m impressed how an otaku would be able to steal a beautiful girl’s heart, and how determined he was to win her heart. I like the overall of the TV series, there is one thing that bothers me so much. Otakus cry so much? on almost every scene, the otaku and his friends always cry. He cried over something very stupid thats not even worth it. Well its probably the director exaggerated about it.

I actually watch the TV series online at Just register and search for densho otoko =]

I’m Bored ~
