Yamada Tsuyoshi is a weird, creepy, coward Otaku. One day, he rides a train bothered by a drunk, fat man. This man starts to trouble a beautiful woman, who Yamada notices as attractive while sitting in front of her. He decides to help her, to stand up and tell the old man to go away. In return, she sends him Hermes teacups as thanks. Inexperienced with women, he turns to the single men's message board for advice and support.

It's about how bunch of otaku are trying to support each other through a website. In Densha Otoko they are trying to support one member's otaku love relationship, while in Akihabara@deep they are gathering together to fight against bullies. It's about their friendship and the way they support each other, and of course it's about Akihabara and the mania of the anime otaku.

Both are about otakus, except it's from a different gender's point of view.

I adore how this drama show the kind of support that a person can get from people on the internet, without judgement and expectation, just warm advices and words of encouragement and interest in how you're doing, for everything to go well for you, when one often doesn't get those from people in the real life. It's really amazing.
And the growth of Yamada, it's shown so well and it makes one's heart warm up.

One of the best drama series. The soundtrack ist great, all the old fashioned songs ^^ Great!

The actors did a great job, I love all of them; Hermes-san, Atsushi, the "villain" Toyohara and of course the small role of Oguri Shun (great!)

While watching I could feel the tension between Hermes and Densha ^^
And I was touched about the theme of the drama; for me it is about tolerance, love and acceptance.

A drama I would recommend everybody

It really exhaust me, this drama...
All the faltering and stammering...There was a moments I really wanted to drop it and don't continue with it again...
But in the end, I did finish it and I also quite like it.
And Shiraishi Miho and Oguri were anyway the best!!! ♥

In the end I liked this dorama. It was cute too. The characters were mostly funny but Densha's over-nervousness was somethimes kinda irritating.
I loved the message board scenes, especially when everyone was supporting Densha and Hermes's relationship really fervently 8D Everyone was really super otakuish. The Another Ending episode was especially interesting, got to know more about the A-chans guys. (you know, and extra episode, not alternative ending unlike the name suggests)
Oguri Shun's character was nice too as the mysterious hacker type of a nerd.

I am an Anime Otaku (in a milder way than in this series xD) too so in the scene when Densha was trying to stop being an otaku I was all "Nooo~ Don't throw the figures away! Sell them or give to someone but don't destroy them!" ^^;
