J-Shelf 1: Densha Otoko

(J-Shelf 1: Densha Otoko)

Hey gang, so I started a new video series in the vein of the j-horror reviews but open to movies, music, toys, games, food and basically anything from japan. This first episode is about the Densha Otoko (train man) film. I love the movie, and I really recommend everyone check it out if they haven't already. There's a load of good train man stuff out there, so give it a look!

Truth be told, the inspiration for this video can be related back to my last post. I needed to find ways to keep busy and keep myself happy here while away from my girlfriend, so I figured I love video editing, so adding an extra video a week sounded like a great idea. It really is relaxing for me to edit the videos. Truth be told I enjoy that far more than filming videos haha.

Today has been a great day, work was awesome and I put up an English language bulletin board at work. I got a letter in the mail from Rebecca, and I also received a big box of winter clothes and other goodies from my parents. Nice!

Ok, well hope everyone is doing well! New Iwate Swan should hopefully be out tomorrow. Just waiting on the music now haha. Until then, take it easy and see you next time!

I prefer drama series to the movie densha otoko, cuz the heroine misaki itoh is much prettier than miki nakatani. at any rate,it was a good love story cheering up shy nerdy guys. good job.looking forward to the next post.
the time while you are alone away from her will surely grow both of you well enough to reap the fruits of true love. keep positive.

Densha Otoko the movie has so much more depth than the TV series imo, and the characters are a lot more attractive. One of my first great loves in Japanese movies - especially modern comedies - because good ones are hard to come by these days. ^_^ Nice review! Hope you'll do Okuribito at some point, but definitely avoid Shaolin Shoujo and My Girlfriend's a Cyborg. Stinkers, both! ;) ...Then again, your fun reviews might make them sound a lot more entertaining than they really are!
