Densha otoko (Which translates to Train Man) is a drama running in Japan right now, it’s really pretty funny and I thought some of you might like it.
Basicly its a romantic comedy (And a super hilarious one at that) about this guy who is a very stereotypical otaku who meets the woman of his dreams on a train and after an incident, starts talking to her and goes back to post all about it on an internet board (He does that a lot during this show, but thats one of the best parts so thats okay ).
Anyway I don’t want to spoil anymore but the show is actually all based on a 2-chan thread (Which is a big japanese forum for those that don’t know) and as well as this drama its been made already into a novel, manga and film, but well, for one thing I don’t think any of them include the imperial march theme!
All in all its all very reminiscent of a shounen manga, here’s some pictures:
