Densha Otoko (Train Man)
Itoh Misaki, Itoh Atsushi, Shiraishi Miho, Sato
Eriko, Oguri Shun
Adapted from the best selling book "Train Man," this is the true life story of a
geeky young man's romance with a beautiful young lady. The book is based on
actual messages posted on a huge internet discussion board in Japan. A million
internet users followed the Train Man's romance, giving him advices on how to
impress the girl and take her out on dates. Train Man belongs in the so-called "Akiba-kei"
category: a term that describes nerdy looking men who hang out at Akihabara (the
famous electronics area in Tokyo) all day, who are obsessed with video games and
Saori Aoyama is a 25-year old woman who works at a foreign company in Tokyo. She
has lived overseas for a long time and is fluent in English. She has an aura of
sophistication and a beautiful face that turns men's heads.
One Sunday, Saori had to attend a party at work. Her female colleagues are busy
searching for good-looking guys while Saori attends foreign guests, flashing
warm smiles at them. After a long day working, Saori rides the train home only
to be involved in an incident that would change her life.
Inside the train, Saori is harassed by a heavily drunken man. When the drunk
reaches to touch her face, a young man stands up and says, "S... stop that!" She
turns to see a very weak looking young man. The young man's action sparks up a
quarrel in the train. He feebly says, "I'm sorry for getting you all involved.
This is my fault." Some of the other passengers have annoyed look on their
faces, but some praise the young man for his courage. Saori also seems impressed
at what the man did for her.
The young man is 23-year old Tsuyoshi Yamada. He is the typical nerd obsessed
with anime and computer games. He always hangs out in Akihabara, the electronics
center in Tokyo. Tsuyoshi has no interest in fashion and other trends, and his
age equals the number of years he hasn't had a girlfriend. He works as a
salesman at an employment agency but is always scolded by his boss.
Tsuyoshi just happened to be on his way home from an event in Akihabara when he
met Saori. He has never been in a fight before, but the sight of the drunk
harassing Saori made him furious as he stood up to protect her.
The only things Tsuyoshi is usually interested in are anime and video games. But
something about Saori's beauty lit a fire in his heart, giving him courage. When
he's looking for words to apologize, Saori hands him her date planner. "I want
to return a favor, so can you write down your address?" Tsuyoshi is taken back.
He has been humiliated a thousand times by women, but never appreciated,
especially from a beautiful woman like Saori. Saori has a sweet smile on her
face as she watches Tsuyoshi write down his address with shaking hands.
Hermes and Train Man
If it wasn't for the drunk man in the train, Tsuyoshi and Saori would never have
become acquainted. A few days after the train incident, Tsuyoshi really receives
a package from Saori. Inside was a Hermes tea cup. Tsuyoshi held the bright
orange cup with his shaking hands. Unfortunately, he has never had a girlfriend
in the past and is at a loss about what to do. That is when he visits a huge
internet discussion board for some help.
Tsuyoshi immediately becomes the center of attention. Other computer freaks
reply one after another. "Call her and say thanks!" "No, it's better to keep it
a memory." Reading the heated discussion, Tsuyoshi is touched that so many
people are supporting him even though they don't know each other at all.
Since then, Tsuyoshi has been referred to as "Train Man" and without her
knowledge, Saori was being called "Hermes."
Ever since Tsuyoshi received the Hermes cup, his everyday life is filled with
new experiences: calling a girl, mobile phone messages, buying clothes, going on
a date, holding her hand, walking her home, visiting her room... Everything that
happens between him and Saori is a big event and miracle for Tsuyoshi. He does
his best to hide his geek-ness. Tsuyoshi's mind is occupied with just one wish.
"I want Saori to like me."
On the other hand, Saori is starting to be moved by Tsuyoshi's efforts. "Maybe I
can trust Tsuyoshi" she thinks. What Saori looks for in a guy is not his money,
nor his looks or brains, but "honesty." In the past, Saori was betrayed and
deeply hurt by her longtime boyfriend. She found out that he had a wife and
kids. Since then, Saori could not stand a man that lies.
What happens when Saori finds out what the real Tsuyoshi is like? How will she
react when she discovers she has become a heroine on an Internet site?
