Geeky fanboy Ikumi Saiki has a dream that someday, somehow, he'll finally get a girlfriend. Then one day, on the train home, he rescues a beautiful girl from a troublesome drunk. Now the girl sees the hero inside the otaku—and it appears that Ikumi will finally find romance! But though Ikumi found the courage to save her, will he ever be brave enough to win her heart? Desparate, Ikumi posts an urgent plea on an Internet message board: "Help me with the girl of my dreams!" Ikumi's story ignites the whole online world. Everyone is ready to help Ikumi prove that even an otaku can find true love!

Train man is a fantastic manga, regardless of the fact theres only one volume. Frankly, theres no need to have anymore since if it continued, it would be very boring and dragging.. once you finish you'll feel satisfied about the ending, just cuz you so knew what would happen. Thankfully, i wasn't about to rip my hair out and wonder how fast i could get my hands on the next volume. It really is a feel good manga that will make you want to put it down gently and ponder upon your own personal love life. In a good way of course ^^

So basicly, the read more

A journey of a man who thinks he's never capable of having a girlfriend....when one event changed it all!
It was a blast reading it, with a few flaws though.

-A great read for the hopeless otakus out there
Ikumi here simply couldnt picture falling in love, seeing his own status besides being an otaku. Along the way though, all he needs to do is to step up his game, and his journey just kept getting more interesting.
-a POV (Point of View) story?
The scenes drawn on Ikumi's story is all from Ikumi's point of view, making the journey more realistic because we won't read Mai-chan's point of view read more
