On the Third Day of Christmas.....

My Tube Love gave to me

DVD of Train Man from Ebay

I lost my eBay virginity a week ago (I know, I know, I've never bought anything on eBay until now) and I bought a copy of the TV series of the excellent Train Man or Densha Otoko story (look at UK and international listings). I saw the Japanese Train Man film on a flight over to San Francisco a few weeks ago, It's a brill story involving a geeky young man's romance with a woman he met on the subway. The book/film/TV series is based on actual messages posted on a huge internet discussion board in Japan. A million internet users followed the Train Man's romance, giving the poor hapless geek advice on how to impress the girl and take her out on dates.

I go into the plot in more detail on my original post about it, but it's a fab story and if you like this blog, trains, subways and the internet, you'll definitely like this film (make sure you get a copy with English subtitles though!).
