Densha Otoko ( 2channel real story ) (624)

1 Name: 返信 2005-05-28 01:27 ID:HoZnHXLW

The movie "Densha Otoko" (Train Man) is to be shown in several countries in East Asia, including Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, following sales efforts at the recent Cannes Film Festival. The movie is based on a supposedly true story that played out on the Channel 2 web site, Japan's most popular BBS. It tells of an "otaku" (nerd), played by Yamada Takayuki (21), who comes to the rescue of a woman (Nakatani Miki, 29) being groped on a train. Not knowing how to pursue his newly found love, he turns to the Web for help and advice. The love story was turned into a best-selling book and has the subject of a lot of publicity over the last year, and has publishers scouring the Web looking for the next big hit. The biggest question that remains is whether it's really a true story of innocent love triumphing or just a clever marketing ploy. The movie opens on June 4.

Getting to the next stage in life and love

Why has the Japanese birth rate fallen so low that pandas are starting to look fecund by comparison? I had read the experts, naming everything from workaholism to scarce day-care as causes, but my light-bulb moment came during a press screening of "Densha Otoko (Train Man)," TV hitmaker Shosuke Murakami's debut feature about an otaku who meets a woman on a commuter train and woos her with the help of his Internet friends.

I saw the television show yesterday (downloaded all the episodes) and I cried not only tears of joy, but tears of sadness whenever Densha was let down. We are so similar that it seems like it's the story of my future. Regardless, great drama.

> Today (24.08, 21:00-21:54) they showed "trivia no izumi" (toukai terebi channel) where they did a research in akihabara if there were any real "densha otaku" out there... that is, they staged the "annoying old man"-cenario and watch if the bypassing otakus would rescue the maid in despair. Well, first of all i just want to point out that 69 out of 100 otakus came to the rescue!! (sasuga otaku!)

"The Japanese title (houdai) of American film Napoleon Dynamite will be Bus Otoko (Bus Man.) As Yuki points out, this new title has almost nothing to do with the film itself and 100% to do with the fact that there is a popular Japanese film/television show/internet hoax called Densha Otoko. (Even the tagline is based on 2-ch typography!) In last month's Cyzo, an article about the current "Virgin Boom" referenced ND as being "Bus Man" in Japan, but I was convinced at the time that the writer was making a bad joke."

>>125 why do he say "mother" to her mother , is it some formal japanese thing.

128 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-18 18:12 ID:SqY7Uh9X

>>127 He says that as a friendlier version of "old lady".

Saying "old hag" or "old lady" is sorta insultive, while as "mother" also points out that he thinks she's too old for him, while as it's not insultive.

Does anyone here know that whether the train man gets married with Hermes in reality? And how are they now?

p.s. I also like the TV programme very much.

132 Name: Piyo 2005-09-19 06:10 ID:niDOm3vF

maybe so... But nobody knows their current situation due to their own privacy.
And stiill some people doubt this story was fiction by someone on 2ch.

133 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-19 07:08 ID:Heaven

A question that's been haunting me for some time:

What kind of mouse is Densha using?

134 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-19 08:48 ID:SqY7Uh9X

>>130 It is to show that the BBS got more visitors following what Densha does, as the place got a bigger reputation and thus more people reading the board.

>>133 ...I've never actually paid any attention.. I'll have to do so when i watch ep 10 over again.

I wonder if the anime from densha otoko would ever be made in to a real show. I could definately see it happening... then there could be real 'mina' otakus... how bizarre would that be!

146 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-23 23:29 ID:OC7g1+T5

This is one of the most beauitful and inspiring series I have ever seen ...

I cried and sweated so much while watching this. I stayed up all night to finish it. I had to see Hermes and Densha together again, because in a way, I went through this, too ...

Funny stuff... especially with all the forum members going insane, convulsing, etc...haha. Overall it's been a great series, despite the fact that I find densha himself rather annoying, and hermes extremely uninteresting. Something has kept me watching though, probably the side characters (densha's friends, the forum members) and such, and just the whole concept is definately something unique. Sad to see it end (;´д⊂)...

157 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-24 21:36 ID:Heaven

Episode 10 was so ero ero YO at times! I lolled at the pixelated censoring of "adult kiss".

Also, WTF was up with them showing Densha's mysterious mom and the completely weird "Matilda announcement"? Seemed completely gimmick.

Entire post...

158 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-24 21:52 ID:OC7g1+T5

Densha's mom is played by Matilda's seiyuu from the Gundam anime a long time ago

Not really a gimmick, but I think it fits in nicely since this show is about an otaku, after all

159 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-24 21:54 ID:OC7g1+T5

The Operation Odessa scene was probably a little weird to people not familiar with Gundam, too

160 Name: Couch Potato 2005-09-24 22:12 ID:Heaven

Which one would that have been? REQUESTING DETAILS!

this has become my favorite series.

I had something to nitpick about all three subbers when I tried them out for episode 9. So I couldn't really say, but at the end I just went with aviness.

wich is better? which is more "real".

197 Name: Couch Potato 2005-10-03 18:48 ID:Heaven

Neither is "better". They work well within their respective media. Densha Otoko TV works REALLY well as a TV show. Densha Otoko the Movie works REALLY well as a movie.

so hey. for someone who has seen the first 8 episodes but not the last three, which subs (aviness, densha-lover or masakun) are the best?

231 Name: Couch Potato 2005-10-13 20:05 ID:Heaven

They all have their advantages and errors. For instance, I liked aviness the best as far as translation went, but some of the subs overlap sometimes, timing errors I guess.

232 Name: Couch Potato 2005-10-14 03:01 ID:cNvN96cv

IIRC Masakun did the best job with the cultural references and translation overall, but aviness was better with the colloquialisms and speed. I think I have Masakun as the source for my DVDs (gotta love SRT -> DVD sub converters).

Okay, it's a guy and three girls, we saw that already

How did they meet? Why are there three of them? Are they sisters or something? Why do they like this guy, what did he do? What the fuck is this movie about?

I finally saw the Densha second ending/epilogue special. It was a bit dissapointing to see it was mainly a clip show, but seeing what happened with the forum members while offscreen during the series made up for it. That last scene though, when Hermes invites Densha...

This is just an observation based on what little japanese I understand. From what I saw in that trailer, perhaps he meets these girls through a stereotypical mishap that made him look like a perv and then what zany antics follow and what romance might blossom. Or seomthing. Yea.

281 Name: Couch Potato 2005-12-05 16:36 ID:tTS7W4Z+

Bingo. From what I've heard/seen, this is based off a novel parodying(?) Densha.

People in this thread are likely to find interesting.

It's about one of the people in the TV-series. A popculture reference you might have missed, unless you're very well-informed about such things.

363 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-05-29 17:59 ID:oJn2z6k0

Actually, -tan is just an honorific suffix, and can be swapped in and out with -san, or others, depending on the situation.

364 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-05-30 19:48 ID:ruZ+apAU

It's not a regular suffix, and not used in normal conversation except by children who can't pronounce -chan. Otherwise it's used as an overly cute affectation for the subject. I wish people wouldn't overuse it so much.

365 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-05-30 20:21 ID:oJn2z6k0

I liked Hermes, the girlfriend of the dude with dreads, and towards the end, even liked Imperial March girl. Although I personally couldn't be bothered to watch an episode to find out her name again.

366 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-05-31 05:05 ID:oJn2z6k0

I actually became bothered enough to find out the actress' name: Shiraishi Miho - and in the show she's known as Jinkama.

who was the actress who ended up being the girlfriend of the "Single Rant Thread" thread master? She was cute, too

371 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-05-31 18:18 ID:geMAnRu7

Personally, I liked the girl that was together with the crazy hair guy

372 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-05-31 18:29 ID:lLWJzVK/

As I'm unsure of who the thread master was, are you talking about Wendy, the girl who worked at the local restaurant and went to a different town? Or the friend of Saori who went out with Densha's friend, only to be dumped by him because he was afraid of being hurt?

373 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-06-01 01:14 ID:ruZ+apAU

So does anyone know which rooftop was used for the opening scene and other parts? I know some animes have had fan websites devoted to finding the real places that inspired the background art.

the extra episode is mostly about the lives of the other posters on the thread and fills in gaps like who started the thread what effect the thread had on the others.Worth watching if you enjoyed the rest of the series.

It would be a shame if they opted for a vB/phpbb style forum when a 2ch style one, kareha or otherwise, would make such a perfect tie-in to the movie. However, it might be difficult fitting it into the site layout.

Aside from the unsourced "according to FujiTV they're still together" bit from wikipedia, I don't think anyone in the general public knows who he really is (if he's real at all). All the posts were collected by someone else, and it's public domain, so the companies took the story freely.

and now something completly random

I was just thinking... wouldnt it be amazing if your love story would be known in many countries?! I think it would be extremely special!! If this event really happend and they are still together (i guess they would have been married by now) im hoping the two of them grow really old together and later in life write a book about it or something lol (^_^) im just verry curious about what happened afterwards in their lifes <3

422 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-28 18:20 ID:+uGwUNTa

I read that they're still together in a japanese news paper.

426 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-28 22:36 ID:EGshHaZT

Hmm.. I think this Densha fits the role (just on appearance, I don't know how good an actor he is). But, I liked the Hermes from the TV show better than this actress. Just my humble oppinion.

427 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-07-29 14:13 ID:ruZ+apAU

I think the TV actor is more beleivable as a nerd in physical appearance. The movie one looks more well-groomed. I'm undecided on Hermes.

Why is there a mosiac over Densha and Hermes' adult kiss?
I know that anime can be quite liberal with sexual content, but why is live-action usually more conservative?

Another Densha movie review:

444 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-18 02:09 ID:J4wBA4F0

This was the last film I saw at Fantasia before having to head home, and it was kind of a good place to stop. After a steady diet of serial killers, zombies, vampires, and other monsters, a film like "Train Man" supplies a different, but just as vital, fantasy, with the "based on a true story" making the world seem a brighter place.

448 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-26 16:44 ID:3W20rPXn

It really is a shame what bad casting can do to a film. The guy who played densha was very unconvincing. Hell, the whole movie felt like that simpsons running joke about Ranier Wolfcastle playing a nerd (or a elementary school teacher)! It was just plain wrong.

I don't like Hermes in the film. I don't think she is that pretty. But Hermes in the tv show (Itou Misaki!!!) is sooo cute

478 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-12-03 05:01 ID:mv4lJtYJ

The actress playing Hermes in the film is Nakatani Miki. Supposedly, she got the role just because the "real" Densha said that Hermes look a lot more like her. Now..., Nakatani Miki was 29 when she starred in the film. But when she was younger, her beauty, i dare say, was unparelled. And Misaki-san is going to be 30 next year. Not bad for an obaasan (well, almost an obaasan).

479 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-12-05 14:30 ID:jaT/cm9t

Does anyone think that the beautiful Ito Misaki looks awfully similar to Audrey Hepburn? Anyone? Or is it just me? Well maybe not the acting but the looks...

The whole story of "Densha Otoko" is simply inspirational. The entire series of BBS threads prove that there are good people on the Internet who want to help others.

I haven't read the entire thread, so I apologize ahead of time. But has there ever been any sort of update regarding how Densha and Hermes are doing today? With how well this romance has been built up, it would almost be heart breaking to hear if they weren't together anymore.

483 Name: Mr.Feather : 2006-12-23 04:21 ID:px8QC4yB

According to people who made the TV show/ Film (i forgot which) Hermes and Densha are still together to this day.

This thread is pretty old. I forgot how I found it, but now it's bookmarked and bumped!

Densha Otoko is the third Jdorama I've watched. It's pure comedy! I know it's also a romance story but to me it's more funny than anything else. Yamada's two otaku friends, the evil version of Sakurai, and of course Aoyama Saori's good looks are memorable. Some of the skits were so funny my eyes teared and stomach cramped. I mean, c'mon, RC cars delivering diamond rings in an elaborate scheme to woo a woman's affection? Now THAT is funny. You could make a spoof jewelry store commercial out of it. The lighthouse skit was my favorite scene in the TV series.

I'm still of the opinion that the original posts are a far better read/watch than any of the silly, dramaticized fairy-tale stories as seen in the manga/dorama/film. It's just cool seeing 2chers getting excited about stuff like this. I think there's a much better adaptation of 2ch life and its residents yet to be made from a story like this.

The crazy theories about the 2ch owners coming up with the story to pay off lawsuit fines seems much less credible than the story in the posts themselves. They're great posts, and there's no denying the community enthusiasm behind the man. It could be just elaborate fiction he decided to write in a forum instead of a magazine article, but if you notice, it's kind of a boring story. There's no real conflict. It has a real anticlimactic ending that's satisfying because it's so authentic and relatable.

In the beginning the posters might just have been trolls trolling others in that board..

I mean, there was more than one thread about love/dating help, but the "incredible" story might have been the thing that cought the eye of others.

538 Name: nyanko : 2007-09-21 01:48 ID:8sbubeDr

Yeah. I wonder why people would make stupid theories about the stroy being a hoax. I read the whole thread, it seems like a normal dating thread, just a tad more elaborate.

539 Name: zack : 2007-09-30 02:23 ID:xSDPHYBe

I've found the original posts from densha's story (not rinji and nakano hito), if you can read japanese, all posts there are amazing!

540 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-09-30 04:11 ID:r6gStO9Y

The link to the archived original posts are in this very thread.
And they're not "amazing", you're just an idiot.
Fuck Densha Otoko, everyone who cares might as well own Pretty Woman on DVD.

Fun film. I especially laughed when they were having tea and he eats the sugar as if it were candy, then proceeds to put about 5 of them in a tiny cup of tea.

545 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-11-30 06:33 ID:OcE9rJ8D

After watching the drama, I'll never look at an otaku the same way ever again... actually i think i'm turning into one

546 Name: doramafan : 2008-02-01 20:17 ID:S4gbgTqS

Oh I wondered, this is a real story?? I would like to see the real densha otoko and his missus. ^-^ Thx for the link in the 536th post.

547 Name: Hikaru Kazushime : 2008-02-02 09:55 ID:rSfIbfI3

I just started watching the first episode of the series tonight.
It's hilarious. I love it.

549 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-03 21:18 ID:tdm7cHTY

My favourite scene of the series is when all of the 2ch residents are drinking Benoist tea, and they keep making small noises like 'hermes' and 'densha'. It actually made me laugh out loud.

550 Name: Monzika : 2008-02-04 00:27 ID:WJHeM7Gx

Does anyone know where I can find the soundtrack to the movie? I can only find the soundtrack to the show online and it's really frustrating!!!

551 Name: dude : 2008-02-05 07:25 ID:U3SCag0/

I've read the translations and thought the original post were pretty amazing. I only wonder where they are now. Anyway the posts were good enough to make a j-drama and a movie from. Just a bit of net life I guess.

552 Name: : 2008-02-05 18:06 ID:xs/1QW9K

Apparently Densha's tripcode was cracked soon after he took one on. So what was it? (a bit of trivia, I admit, but I'm curious.)

Also, kind of weird that the real couple never stepped forward. I wonder if all the hype caused Hermes to find out about 2ch, freak out, and leave him.

553 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-07 01:18 ID:OXMgSUKo

maybe they don't want any publicity at all?

554 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-07 03:28 ID:Heaven

555 Name: roy : 2008-02-10 14:07 ID:7u9UaubM

has densha and hermes real couple step forward? is Saori the real names of hermes?

556 Name: roy : 2008-02-10 14:10 ID:9MjSi7/+

take it slow? sorry i don't get what u mean. Btw, i m a newbie to this channel. hi...

557 Name: roy : 2008-02-10 15:08 ID:9MjSi7/+

but since the real couple didn't step forward, is the names on the drama the actual names of the couple?

The story is mostly fiction with a little drawn from the BBS discussions.

560 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-12 03:45 ID:VQ69wTJU


no and no.

561 Name: Samir : 2008-02-12 08:56 ID:N+1jkc/V

I saw this movie by accident and loved it. A departure from what you normally see here in the US. It would be neat to read the original 2ch posts, but I don't think they would make much sense since I can't read Japanese. :(

562 Name: roy : 2008-02-14 13:00 ID:WdhZfBSV

thanks couch potato, sorry for bombarding 3 messages in a row...

563 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-02-23 13:56 ID:Heaven

Google for the English translation.

564 Name: Samir : 2008-02-24 06:40 ID:N+1jkc/V


Thank you for the suggestion. I've actually found it, and have been reading it before sleeping each night. Very interesting to see the similarity and contrast between the movie and the translated thread.

I don't like the movie. The drama however RULES.

I've read the book n watch the drama
but i haven't watch the movie version..
is it good??
maybe if u're thinking about "Are there someone with the same problem like Densha?", there are one at the romance section...i've been looking at his thread for some time, and yes he's an otaku :D

575 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-01-07 00:22 ID:zVbb3m1K


I too loved the book and the TV drama.
The movie was good, but to be honest the Drama was better. Because of the length of the series it had alot more time to play the story out and, while some may argue that the dramatization was awful, it also allowed them to include those quirky comedy moments that made the show so memorable. (With the help of the new characters Jinkama and Kazuya. There's only so much the residents could provide.)

I miss watching that drama. :]]
I watched it twice. Still gave me tears in both times.

I hope i can find an information on what really happens to their relationship. If they are still together.

Hi! I just finished the drama recently and was watching the "making of" interview.

I was looking for an english translation for it and came across this channel. I'm pretty amazed that this style of forum exists in english!!! Sooo excuse me if I'm breaking any rules...I could say I'm busy writing a paper but really I am just so excited to write in the same kind of forum (!!)

594 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-04-14 13:18 ID:Heaven

Couch Potato is the default name in the Film/TV boards of 4-ch.

You're not breaking any rules, it is a cute and inspiring story, but imagine if like everytime someone heard a song from the beatles there was a post "oh wow guys this band is so great" in the music section. Except this happens in film, anime, manga, literature, romance, personal, general, whatever. It gets boring after a while, especially when no more input has to be added to the subject. This thread (amongst many others) is FOUR YEARS OLD for fuck's sake!

595 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-08-09 07:40 ID:Qiwjencr

regarding the authenticity of densha otoko, i really like to believe it's real but even if it's not we got to see the world's most miraculous love story. i read on wiki that

"Densha Otoko's posts continued for awhile longer, but on May 17, there were posts about being on the verge of having sex, forum members made inappropriate comments (they had been expressing their opinions and thoughts about him). Later that night, Densha Otoko left the boards."

Entire post...

596 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-08-09 07:41 ID:Qiwjencr

interesting, the name automatically became couch potato even when i left it blank

597 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-08-09 07:43 ID:Qiwjencr

i thought 4ch encourages user to not leave names, the default name should be no name like 2ch or Anonymous

598 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-08-09 19:38 ID:qoZ9hLFw

Couch Potato is Anonymous for this subforum. Almost every subforum has a specific default name, to better fit the mood. It's like Anonymous, only flavored. I don't see what's wrong with that.

599 Name: J : 2009-12-01 19:28 ID:E/tp/2rP

Look. If it was a work of fiction, the Japanese users of 2-ch would respond to the publishing of the novel. Since they did not, i'd assume it to be true. You think too much, thread starter.

Anyhoo, i'm still going to watch the movie.

watch 'otaku no video'.
I really envy them.

612 Name: Couch Potato : 2010-04-27 20:27 ID:rMHcKJZ4

I liked the movie more than the TV show. Even though the woman felt a bit flat/unemotional in the movie, the characters were all around more believable I felt.

613 Name: densha's fan!!JJYYs87i : 2010-05-12 07:06 ID:tMJI9COU

614 Name: Wonderfelt : 2010-05-14 13:01 ID:uRSdsFBO

yep .. one of the best drama .. but Nobuta wo Produce is the best for me .. lol .
Actually the reason I go to websites like this is because I watched Densha Otoko .. and I truly admired how those unknown people who hav never met Densha helped him so much .... it was just simply amazing ...
If ever there are still some otakus out there !! try becoming like Densha ..!!

I'll skip the usual superlatives, expressions of conviction that it must be a true story, and wishes for updates (though I share them....) but:

Has anyone else noticed that the story is a remake (in real life) of the 1924 movie "Girl Shy", and that in the Fuji drama Ito and Ito match Harold Lloyd and Jobyna Ralston in character, mannerism, and --- no less -- in FACE?
