Densha Otoko Manga (84)

1 Name: Random Manga Otaku 2005-09-02 17:39 ID:415WhODe This thread was merged from the former /manga/ board. You can view the archive here.

Oh yes, another Densha Otoko thread!

I heard there were several manga adaptions out there, but I only know of this one (which ran in Young Sunday Comics) which got the first few chapters translated:

Post more info stuff about other manga adaptions if you can!

not bad but it's a lot more serious than the drama that's for sure

3 Name: Random Manga Otaku 2005-09-05 14:09 ID:j+Mv3Xu0

Yeah, seeing as how the drama was funny as hell and all. The art style looks familiar...

4 Name: Random Manga Otaku 2005-09-24 09:52 ID:IbKnwExb

There's also a shoujou version..I saw that in a store somewhere.

5 Name: Miki 2005-09-28 06:29 ID:6Ys7Sh67

shoujou version?? cant imagine...the otaku must be really cute then haha!!

29 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2007-04-05 23:16 ID:8GI5S60/

You can download the unlicensed one here, although it seems to have stalled. :( I don't think the others were scanlated before being licensed, so they'd be harder to find.

42 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2007-08-09 23:40 ID:UVctstrI

Damnit, you beat me to posting that link. I read the translated threads after watching the movie. And was impressed by how close the movie followed the original story.

Anyways thanks for the links to the scanlations. Awesome.

43 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2007-08-13 10:13 ID:LA2R/nia

Hahaha, i keep dreaming how a miracle would happen to me to turn my pathethic life to the good.........

But hoping something lke Densha Otoku is not a good thig, cause it requires a person in big need or even danger :(

44 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2007-08-14 10:06 ID:R4x2v7ek

Yeah, another pathethic day for an idiot ........

Just have nothing to do......

45 Name: Rara : 2007-08-30 11:00 ID:w8itSq07

46 Name: TeenieCz : 2007-11-06 05:26 ID:1bjqKM7d

Arrgh! but I can't just DOWNLOAD these! I'm too committed.

NEED to BUY the manga x]!

When are the pay checks coming in >:?

47 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2008-02-04 16:31 ID:usqww6TO

hey i heard online there doing the drama as a manga is this true................. please tell me

48 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2008-02-12 13:30 ID:OQ6+xtn6

ok so
all we need is
1 badguy who molest a kawaiilol girl on a train
1 hero to push the drunk on his ass
2 friends could pull this off
to be sure the [hero] gets a girl
they could repeat it like 5-10 times a night

maybe this works better in japan were females are WeAk
a western girl would...scream,kick,hit,spray the drunk who touch them lol

49 Name: Sen : 2008-05-19 21:01 ID:2Pcakiqx has the entire manga online.

It was interesting reading the actual threads from 2ch, but I couldn't help but think that the end was a little fake. I wonder if it actually ended badly and densha fabricated the ending.

50 Name: kamsihiro : 2008-05-26 00:11 ID:MPq2FUUd

I dun wanna think abt this possibility , at least , for densha otoko , a happy ending , he is like a example for all otakus ;___________; ( in my case an otome )

51 Name: noname : 2008-05-27 00:26 ID:1y3pgE2v

Yeah i've read it and this is great (the manga)
Dunno what to think about these threads, i didn't read all those 'cause it was long to read but... maybe it really end up bad :( hope not ...

52 Name: Sen : 2008-05-27 20:55 ID:2Pcakiqx

I get what you mean. The ending really appeals to me but I've read lots of shoujo manga and I can't help but think it was a very 'shoujo' the point that it seemed unreal and rather fabricated...

Still, as it is a manga version, the end may have been more exaggerated for effect.

53 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2008-05-28 09:42 ID:f4rk+CRK

srsly, I think the same.
you HAVE to BUY manga.

54 Name: Mo-e monster : 2008-06-19 12:07 ID:/8Urj8XQ

72 Name: no name : 2009-02-04 16:57 ID:gfQSw+o2

hate to put a damper on things but a lot of people doubt densha otokus realism as its easy enough to start something and let your imagination run away with you

73 Name: zero : 2009-02-06 20:02 ID:pDEBtfAW

well it doesnt mean that things like ts havent happend or that other people arent in the same situations

74 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2009-02-15 21:46 ID:ZG0F1lIa

76 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2009-02-28 17:43 ID:HZPzF1zD

I don't remember well, but I guess if I start reading it again I'll restart from the beginning as I always do.

And yeah, one of the things I liked the most was that feeling of impeding doom on every character.

77 Name: Random Manga Otaku : 2009-02-28 17:43 ID:Heaven

Wrong thread nevermind me.

78 Name: MaybeImALion : 2009-04-08 22:51 ID:vMon9yJO


This is my first time and i'm trying to blend both american and japanese tradition. hope ya like it!


Time:Both modern and ancient

The Main char(workin on some names)is a 15 yr old mercenary living a normal life that only he knows about and completing missions and such. what he doesn't know about was that when he was little a crazed scientist melded his body with one of the 8 scattered parts of a legendary demon inside him to see what the effects would be. Unfortunately, he is killed in the rage of the main char. He was told that his parents died in a mission to liberate a local town.However, they died fusing with one of the eight parts and ultimately destroying their own bodies. Time has passed and the town looks to the main character as someone who needs to be protected. Other enemies are looking to obtain the power within this child. For should they be able to obtain even one of the missing parts, they would have unbelievable power. In this manga, bounty hunters, killers , organizations and even allied towns will do whatever it takes to obtain the strongest part of the demon which lies in the main char, the Demon's soul. However the main char looks for peaceful solutions and can be persuaded each way. Who's idea of peace is right? Will peace be an opportunity to wage war, to live in happiness or perhaps.... the rebirth of the planet? Ultimately the fate of the world lies within him. It will be up to him to establish the true idea of peace.

BTW plz don't copy. i took a lot of time into this. hope you all liked it. thx!
