I have only seen the movie, this week actually. It was amusingly sweet. Even though there were moments where I found myself questioning the credibility of the skit, I thought the acting was really well done. The main characters put up a convincing performance, no less credit given to the side characters --- all of them were memorable. I hate to admit it, but I watched it again today, and I want to see it again. I don't know, something about it is quite genuinely charming. I went ahead and ordered the dvd. Don't laugh at me. >.<
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 computers.
