Description
From CMX:
Perpetual geek, social basket case, and obsessive fan needless to say, the guy called "Train Man" has never had a girlfriend. Most of his days are spent immersed in electronics and waiting for the box set DVD of his favorite anime series.

But fate takes a turn for Train one ordinary night on an ordinary train ride. He falls in love at first sight with Hermess, a gorgeous fellow passenger. When a drunken rider tries to harass her, Train surprises himself by coming to her rescue. But when Hermess later contacts Train with a thank you give and the possibility of further contact, that's a situation he can't handle.

He immediately goes online to a popular chat room to solicit advice. To his horror, he's encouraged to ask her out. Soon he is bombarded with advice regarding how, when and where he should do it. Will Train Man find true love, or will all this pressure to come out of his shell be too much for him to take?

Really glad I tried this one!

The main theme of the story is a socially-inept guy finding inner strength and, with the help of his online friends, gaining the courage to change himself, overcome his weaknesses, and go after a dream he never thought he'd have a chance of making a reality.

I picked this one up on a whim and really wasn't sure just what to expect, but I wound up getting so totally wrapped up in the story of Train-san and Hermess-san that I ended up reading the whole thing straight through to the end as soon as I unwrapped the books (even though I'd just planned to take a quick look to see how the series started).

For me, it was something of a roller-coaster ride. The story could have worked out either to a good ending or a down-beat ending, and I really couldn't decide which way it was going to go until close to the very end. (I won't say how it ended, but I was satisfied with the way things were resolved.)

Only regret is I wish the story had been a bit longer: three volumes just didn't feel like enough time to spend with the two characters, and I wouldn't have minded if the mangaka had taken a little extra time to develop the characters and their backgrounds a little more thoroughly.
