Good, but not stellar   
Rating: N/A

After seeing so many recommendations and the stellar ratings, I started reading this with extremely high expectations. Maybe because I'm a girl though, it didn't live up to my expectations.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
One of the moments I found most interesting in this series was when Mr. Molester solved his misunderstanding with Mr. Glasses. At that moment I had high hopes for Mr. Molester to make his very first guy friend in real life, which could result in all sorts of interesting interactions and discussions beyond what he got on 2ch. With that, the series would have been about how a shut-in eventually acquires a well-rounded life with both male and girl friends as well as a girlfriend.

Instead, this boy who never had friends, let alone a girlfriend, somehow found himself surrounded by Only girls, all of which eventually get over initial misconceptions and quickly befriend him. This process was quite enjoyable, until the other romance "routes" were added. At this point the series started feeling like a dating sim (not helped by the "choice A or B?" conversation formats). Despite the well-written moments (especially from Mr. Molestor's POV), the girls fall so easily and quickly in love with someone they only meet from time to time that I can't help but think that they must be Really horny or desperate for a boyfriend. This reinforced the feeling that they're mere dating sim targets (challenging ones, but ones to be "won"). I mean, they started as total strangers, but in 2 months 2 girls were ready to sleep with him?

I can see why guys would love this. This series gives shut-in guys a lot of hope, and the main male character is easy to empathize with, with many realistic (?) flaws portrayed in sympathetic light. However, the girls were not written on the same level: they were overall "girls who guys would like to date", but conveniently seemed to lack any decent guys in their life. And in the end, they felt like routes to be played through, albeit challenging ones, rather than real-life girls (who would likely need a lot longer to grow so intimate with a stranger otaku).

An other masterwork from yoko - a must read!

This manga (well doujin) is great in every way possible. First things first: After reading Onani Master Kurosawa, which is in my opinion one of the best mangas ever made, I wasn't turned off by the art of this doujin at all and actually enjoyed it. And this is a highly recommened advice: don't drop this manga only because you may not like the art! why? it's simple: the story is hilarious, touching and very realstic (didn't even now that it is based on a real story).

Similiar to the comment below, I normaly don't laugh too often with the mangas I read but this one hit the spot. The jokes and monologues of the protagonist are hilarious. As for the protagonist: I'm sure that every reader can connect to the protagonist of this story. Being a bit of a loner, and avarage otaku and a 2channler, I think that everyone has experienced similar obstacles or situations at some points in life as he has to face in this story.The plot itself is very interessting and even though it's basically a slice of life ambience, the relations and conversation of the characters seem so realistic that you may forget that this is a manga. But the main reason that this story turned out to be one of the best series I've ever read was due to the romance in it. A heart warming and beautiful story that through it's simplicity makes it so true-to-life. For this kind of storys I'm happy that I read mangas. Definitely a masterpiece - 10/10. I recommend it to everyone!

it gives you a look at how your life can change with little misunderstandings and interactions at any given time

the art it's kind of like a manuscript, and like penguin71 said, you really start to like it that way, it's like you are reading a diary or something

Train Man's Second Coming   
Rating: N/A

If you enjoyed Train Man or Onani Master Kurosawa, you'll probably love Molester Man.

The title itself is very misleading, as the story has almost nothing to do with molesters (and neither is the protagonist a molester). As other reviewers have mentioned, YOKO does a great job immersing the reader in the story -- you'll laugh when the main character does, you'll cry when he does, cringe when he cringes, etc. This is a great story about budding love, and character growth and will definitely leave you feeling warm with heartache by the end.

Hilarious and Heartwarming

I laughed out loud many time for this doujin, and I don't laugh in manga often (I groan a lot more). The art style seems "bad" at first but it fits the situation perfectly and after a while it begins to grow on you. But what really keeps you reading is the story of how Molester Man goes from a shy shut-in into a much more forward, open, and dare I say, mature man.

This is one of the funniest things I've read in awhile. And to think something of this level actually happened? That just makes everything all the better. No wonder everything had a realistic feel to it. ha ha ha.

I haven't written a comment for a manga in a long while, but this one deserves a comment. As they say in parts of the web, I came due to the title, I stayed due to the story. It really is a nicely paced story with good character progression and very nice control of drama and feel good moments. In addition, all the references and parodies make the comedy in this great as well. Definitely recommend for anyone, it was a genuinely a good read. Surprising, since I was intrigued by the strange title and wasn't expecting something serious. What a nice surprise.

What a epic ride , another epic manga from the great yoko (Damn this guy should make more offical stuff than doujin ) .Onani master kurosawa was the epic manga as well , first time i read molester man i
immediately have a odd feeling , then i check the artist and it was yoko as well , so surprising i continue
to read it and hope it will be epic as Onani master kurosawa and it was beyound my expectation , it even epicer, and it was base on the true story as well may be the most stunning part.I have to admitted at first, i think it will be like another train man aka boy meet girl in real life but it not , this manga strike me at diffirent direction and it was both amusing and original just as expected from a real life based manga . Then again i have to praise YOKO for another epic manga he give us and i hope there will be more manga from him in near future .

I did not expect anything when I started reading this manga. It turned out to be really good. I was especially fond of the parody of JoJo and Baki and other manga. I suggest that you read this manga in one go. The art with the dialogue are superb in term of expression and timing, it will make you giggles to yourselves a lot. Although I found the characters' actions to be quite stupid and illogical, it does fit with people in reality. The protagonist is very cliche of Japanese standard, a wimpy guy, and I had some problems with the way he acted, but he is funny in his own way, and there are reasons to justify his behavior. I have more problem with Kansai though, I really like her throughout the manga, except only during the drama. As much as I understand her thinking, I am quite frustrated with her actions. Nonetheless, this manga has become one of the best in my opinions, and I will check other works from this mangaka

This manga is a lot better than other of the same categories, it is very funny, very addictive, very well paced. It is also very refreshing.

Holy Mother Flippin Speechless!

The fact that this story is based on a true story is just... something incredible.

No wonder why Molester Man gets frequent recommendations from veteran readers. This series is so... well, so great and unbelievably 'real' (and you know, by the word 'real', I do mean it). Mr Molester is just so innocent (when it comes to 'relationships' of course). The developments between girls and him are fast, but not insanely fast.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
someone before me stated the girls fell in love so fast. I agree. But one can 'like', well more than 'like' but not as deep as 'love', someone that fast, I guess. And the crush can be developed into love.

Molester Man is hilarious if you read many manga's (see below). Personally I laughed crying when I first saw the A#e waiter. I mean,... LOL. It's not the most touching story ever, or the most beautiful story ever. But... it really is oh so frickin beautiful and emotional just to think that this is what actually happens. (I wouldn't believe if there were more unbelievable stuffs though)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Molester is honest, more like blunt. He said he wanted to had smex with these. He had desire and such. There wouldn't be a part like this in usual 'beautiful' dramas. He admitted he was selfish. He was cool as a real man.

Also, I'm here to confirm that things like that can actually happen. I, too, was once mistaken for a molester, but at that time the girl just ran away and I didn't follow (why would I? lol)

The artist did a good job pleasing manga fans. I found a lot of parodies funny, and I still couldn't understand some of them, presumably because I've never read the references. Anyway, I like the style of drawing. Although this series could probably be better if drawn with inks, this pencil style gives the story appropriate bright tone well.

Life rarely goes easy on you. The ending is hardly ever happy...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
but sometimes it really is!

TL;DR: 'This guy's love is so earnest and... real'
