Abstract:

"A painfully shy young man's life is turned upside down when an incident on a train brings him into contact with something he's completely unfamiliar with ... a woman! This awkward "otaku" knows a lot about manga, anime and video games, but not a lot about the real world, and even less regarding girls. In desperation, he solicits the advice of the online community to improve his social skills. But will their advice help the socially challenged Densha Otoko ("Train Man") or just confuse him even more?"--Page 4 of cover.
