RPGHero's Anime/Manga pick of the week: Densha Otoko (Train Man)


Densha Otoko is a book, movie, television series, and manga. It's about a nerd who is in the right place at the right time on the subway and somehow saves a beautiful woman from a obnoxious and in most representations a horny old man. The old man decides to fight Densha (the nickname for the main character) instead of molesting the beautiful woman and the conductor steps in to save the day. A few days later Densha gets a set of expensive Hermess cups from the woman and sets out to recruit the members of the 2 channel BBS as his advisors because he's got no experience with dating, let alone someone as beautiful as Hermess. He follows their advice, something any person who's been on an internet forum knows is taking a risk. Can you believe that this was based on a true story?? The real Densha must have been immune to the trolls and the bugs hahaha.

I highly recommend watching the television series. The episodes are around 45 minutes long but you'll get hooked after the first episode.

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers



This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
