I loved this story. I've read several reviews about the dorama, that it is one of the best, it is so funny, etc. I thought it was overrated. And it is not! It is and and at the end I was a bit
I loved the thread and the virtual friends... awesome, hilarious characters!
One thing I did not like: **SPOILERS** there was no need for Densha to give up his otaku life. I don't like that he felt he needed to change, he being an otaku was part of his charm!.
Densha and Hermes' romance is really sweet, but the netizens are the heart of the story. No wonder there is a movie, a tv series, several mangas and books of this real-life story.
Waa, this was really cute!
Densha-san is a nerdy, awkward young guy who saves some women from an attack of a drunk old man in a train. Because of that, the pretty lady (whom our hero likes... a lot) takes notice of him, and a sweet relationship starts. But none of it would happen it it weren't for the little help of an online community!
The netizens are there to support Densha-san and advice him whenever he needs it, and encourage him whenever he needs it, and basically, be happy for him. Every time they advised him, or were getting anxious because of Densha-san I was
Densha-san is really sweet, and Hermes is so nice! I like the art too; very good manga.
Amir's family (father, brother and cousin) form an alliance with Baltan, in exchange of Amir as a wife. They attack Amir's village, but Azel changes sides in the middle of the battle.
These siblings are spectacular. I think I am without words when it comes to Amir, it is not enough to praise her, it is a must to read it (and isn't she the cutest when she is worried for Karluk? True, she needs to stop to treat him like a child -he is, but he is also her husband- but it is sweet nevertheless). And her brother Azel is not behind. He has to be one of the most ridiculously handsome guys in a manga ever.
How is this manga not one of the best sellers in beyond me. There are 6 volumes translated only (as far as I know, only 6 were released, cuz the mangaka takes hours to work on this; she is very meticulous in her art and in the story).
Best chapters of Vol.5 are, hands down, "A Day in the Life" and "Fever". The first one is about Amir and Karluk (who has to be one of my favorite couples in a manga, they are impossible not to love!) and the second one is about Karluk´s mother and her husband.
The preparations for the wedding were a joy to read, how all people in the village help in a way or the other (women with the decorations and food; men with the meat). Poor brides have to spent all day being quiet and welcoming the guests, so it was very hard for the twins.
Not a lot about Amir and her story, but the ceremony of the wedding compensates it.
