Product Overview

Computer engineer Otaku is an average young man, dressed in unstylish clothes and dorky glasses. But as luck would have it, he encounters a pretty young woman on a commuter train and saves her from a lecherous molester, falling in love with her at first sight. A few days later he receives a thank-you message from the woman along with a set of Hermes teacups.

Having never had a girlfriend or received a gift from a girl in his life, Otaku seeks out his pals on his BBS website for advice using his codename Train_Man (Densha Otoko): "How should I ask her out?"

Deeply interested in Train_Man's first love, his BBS pals eagerly supply him with advice. Encouraged by their support, Train_Man undergoes a total makeover for his first-ever date with "Hermess." Little does he know that he is about to ignite an Internet phenomenon...

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review "Train Man" is the translation from the original Japanese title "Densha Otoko," and the hero's name is "Otaku," which is roughly translated as "geek." How the geek becomes a man is essentially the sappy story of this romantic comedy that supposedly is based on a true story...If nothing else, this breezily entertaining fable ups the ante on depicting modern communication. I haven't seen a film that has more characters online or on a cell phone or both...Japanese women and Internet geeks alike love "Train Man" and his touchy-feely persona, rare for a Japanese male screen hero. And Yamada and Nakatani are indeed likable. Director Shosuke Murakami efficiently packages the material, deftly weaving in the individual stories of "Train Man"'s chat-room buddies and how his success also gives them courage.

Drew Tillman, The Village Voice ...Densha Otoko is a lot like its protagonist: sweet, weird, and likable...
Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide Sweet, goofy story.
