Train Man: Densha Otoko (2005)

So.......Train man is your username ???

Train are Awesome :)

Train man (Takayuki Yamada, Gantz and Battle League Horumo) is a Nerd love story which from what was advertised involved a nerd call Train man who looks unconventional for a character; He has long hair and wears what can only can be described as train spotting clothing but the disappointing fact was within a short length of time the Train Man transformed His look to a more conventional appearance. Which the whole film was suppose to be looking beyond a persons appearance: The film is about the over whelming feeling of living in a big city and explores some of the diverse, crazy and wonderful characters who inhabit the city. Now there are Train in the film but from the title You would expect there to be more Trains involved in the plot sin-as-how Tokyo like any other city has lots of Trains and calling your self the train man is as useful someone trying to get drunk of coke-cola because anyone can be called the Train man. Despite the film being a romantic and despite being the hero that saves Hermes( Miki Nakatani, Ring And Memories of Matsuko) from the drunken passenger t the beginning of the film; The Train man is the weaker character and Hermes  almost becomes like a mothering figure toward the Train Man. Despite the Train Man's transformation, He still remains the unconventional character who relays upon other to approach Hermes but because of his lack of confidence , he is unaware that Hermes really likes hims and ends up failing epic-ally at everything He does because He is not being Himself. The film is ironically charming because despite The Train Man Transforming Himself to become more appealing to Hermes and appear more Socially acceptable; it becomes clear at the end that Hermes liked The Train Man from the beginning. Despite the ending being a classic happy ending , it still seems unexpected because the narrative doesn't seem to be pushed, the plot takes unexpected turns and the audience can see the Train man's struggle. The over plot seems realistic, The characters all have their imperfection like the Train man so the other Character relate to Him and in the end they learn from Him that Miracles can happen like a money tree or Miki Nakatani following a Nerd on a train. Happen's everyday :)
