*manga is based on a true story and the true story was done in 2ch*

It's about an Otaku guy who fell in love with this beautiful lady and tries his best to get that girl with a lot of help from 2channelers (people who goes/posts on 2ch).

This story has become very famous in Japan and I believe they now have novels, several series of Manga (both Shoujo and Shounen), movie, drama, play, etc, etc.

read Densha Otoko - Net Hatsu, Kakueki Teisha no Love Story instead.

Its basically the same... up to the indivial panels of pages. Just the art is a lot worse in that one, with one small execption: Hermes san has been converted in a typical shounen romance bimbo (you know the type, perfect moe beauty, looks like she is 15). Looks nice, but doesnt really fit the story.

i give this a 7 instead of a 10, were it not for those @#$%^& scanlation groups practically ignoring this manga... its so good.
you may recall from the synopsis up above that the tale of this manga, is actually not the only one out there, but trust me, from the first few chapters they have of this one, compared to the others, this one by FAR outranks them. this version is so superior to its counterparts that i cant seem to think reasons why this hasnt been scanlated yet, other than incredibly bad memory, lightningstrikingthehouseandburningthemangacollection, or finding it so good you'd want to keep it only to yourself....

... its the last one isnt it?

its so sad this should get a 7. its not the mangas fault that no one wants to scan it... in fact, i think i should give it the 10 it deserves, screw the pissed-off-ness at the scanlators...

in fact, i think i will

Its one of those manga where you just feel like you want to encourage the heroin for all his work and you see his thoughts and feeling as obstacles arises..heart warming...
