There is a common problem with character-driven stories that is often overlooked. They're supposed to engage the characters in various trials and tribulations, and by way of these occurrences, shape them into stronger individuals. It sounds simple, yet so many works fail to create memorable characters, instead relying on banal and insipid cliches to make the work seem more than it is.

Chikan Otoko is the antithesis to this trend.

It relies on the most frivolous acts and interactions between characters to naturally explicate the beauties of everyday life and characters. Moreover, Chikan Otoko never tries to be more than it is; and through its sincerity, it read more

So I know what you're thinking... A 10? Really?

Yes, really and with good reason.

Today if you ask a lot of manga readers what makes all these romance or slice of life manga that take a typical school or 'normal' life setting so infinitely great an answer tends to be "It's not boring like real-life." or "It's so exciting/thrilling compared to how it would happen in reality." Anyone who thinks this way now I'd like you to take a seat and read this manga. Chikan Otoko(Molester Man) is a 21 chapter manga with comedy, romance, drama and so-on. What makes this manga particularly different from read more

Ok so I've never written a review before, but I thought this manga deserved one sooo here I go:

Story (9.5 round it up idk) - The story is freakin hilarious ok. The manga has this slice-of-life feel, but it does have some sort of plot where Molester fumbles through his relationships with this group of girls after he gets mistaken for a molester by one of them (Miss Understanding). It's very realistic and down to earth, like I can really relate to Molester and all his awkward, otaku, nerdyness. At the same time though the story still keeps this manga like feeling that is read more

Molester Man? What is this, some feminist enraging hentai manga involving schoolgirl rape? Absolutely wrong! If the name of this doujin put you off reading it then do not be mistaken as it is nothing like what it sounds and lets be honest; how on earth could a rape hentai make it into the top 10? What you'll get is a funny tale of a lonely otaku man that gets mistaken for being a molester and the events thereafter where he is able to befriend the women that misunderstands him and also falls into her group of friends and eventually finds love with ups and read more

By the same author, in both manga, the plot is almost entirely character driven and relies upon on the intricate relations and interactions between the characters. The art drawn not "bad" in a sense but that it has almost no attention to detail, and the backgrounds are very plain. Chikan is heavily reliant on dialogue and conversations, whereas Onani is slighter better art and in my opinion easier on the eyes to read.
Manga adaptations of threads started on 2chan where zero-experience-with-females males, whose natural habitat is a room with an internet connection, find themselves in an unlikely situation: in contact with an attractive female (or 3/4, in Chikan!) that's out of their league. Their response to these turn of events is to post SOS messages on the internet. (More than once, Train Man gets referenced in Molester Man.)

In Train Man, its lead stands up to a drunk on a train and ends up in the good graces of the woman he got hurt protecting... after a visit to the police. In Molester Man, a paranoid woman assumes its lead is stalking her and ends up getting him arrested... meaning another visit to a police station in order to clear things up, which left Ms. Paranoid feeling indebted to the lead for creating such drama.

The responses of the anonymous leads to these events was the same: go on 2chan and make a thread asking for advice over what to do next. The threads became the stuff of legend. In Train Man its lead was a glasses-wearing, high-level type of loser, and he did everything he was told. In Molester Man the lead didn't have the look of a loser and it seemed to be more a case of reporting the events that transpired, most of the time.

Train Man was a lot more straightforward in the sense there's one girl, one goal and no distractions. In comparison, Molester Man throws an early curveball into the romance.
Both are about loner guys who get caught up in a love triangle and another girl (in Aku No Hana the other girl comes later and in Chikan Otoko the other girl is how everything gets started). Both guys are pretty clueless when it comes to romance and are slightly perverted.
Guy gets involved with a pretty girl which leads to complications/romance. Shut in. Social outcast. Character growth. Cool Otaku.
Similarities:
+ Slice of life stories about a group of college-age people living normal, poor lives and struggling to find their place in life
+ Some comedy but mostly drama

Differences:
- Chikan Otoko's main protagonist is a guy and focuses much more on forming a relationship whereas Solanin's protagonist is female and is struggling in her current relationship
- Solanin has a large focus on music and forming a band
Both are short and cutely drawn slice-of-life manga, in which friendship blooms into romance and the main couple is really awkward and sweet.
