They also suffer ups and downs about Train Man’s love, while gaining encouragement from his story.Saori is a beautiful office girl who evokes sighs of admiration from everyone who sees her. One day, on the way home on the train, she is accosted by an obnoxious drunkard. A young man stands up and comes to her rescue. The young man happens to be a typical Akiba-kei otaku who is crazy about anime and manga. Normally two such people would never have gotten to know each other, but his saving her from the advances of the drunkard is the opportunity to press on to love, which requires considerable challenges and difficulties.
