Molester Man is a perverted, socially inept otaku who spends most of his time on the textboard 2ch. One day, on the way home from his part-time job, he is mistaken for a stalker and arrested. After clearing the misunderstanding, Molester Man learns that the girl, whom he subsequently refers to as Miss Understanding, was left traumatized by her stalker, so he offers his hand in the hope of dating her. However, exceeding his own expectations, he gradually becomes closer to Miss Understanding and her friends, the cheerful Kansai and the guileless Loli Jugs.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Chikan Otoko is based on a real-life story of a 20-year-old university student, which was posted on 2ch on November 5, 2004.

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 ...

The plot is somewhat basic, but it's also unpredictable. There is a highly realistic element to it, accented by the simplicity, which adds to it's emotional impact. Even though Yokota Takuma did not actually invent the story, he does deserve some credit for its pacing and exceptional balance between comedy and drama.

It got the point across, while managing to make the characters unique and expressive. There was never a part when I was blown away by the art, but never a part when I thought ...
