Storyline

Tsuyoshi Yamada is a dyed-in-the-wool otaku--an obsessive fan and collector of anime, comics, figures, and the like. He's also terribly shy and awkward around women. One evening, while riding a train home, he sees a woman named Saori being harassed by a drunken passenger and decides to intervene. Saori sends a set of expensive tea cups to Yamada as a token of gratitude. Seeking further advice, Yamada turns to the users of an online message board, who help him to clean up his nerdy image and ask Saori out. As Yamada tries to win over the girl of his dreams, he must fend off a pushy co-worker, a rival suitor, and the temptation to slip back into his old habits. Written by Anonymous

Amazing and light hearted.
16 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The storyline is amazing and gives hope that even an Otaku can still have a chance with a beautiful girl. I found the story well written and the daily life of the Otaku very realistic when I compare them from this TV series to the actual Otaku that you find in Japan.

The characters are well played and the main character gave off a real presence that you often find lacks in most TV series.

This is one show I will remember for a long time and all the people I have introduced this show to have loved it.

The series only gets better as it progresses through each episode.

Plus you've gotta love the title song!
