Short Summary:
Tsuyoshi and Saori go out on a date to Akihabara, amazing all the otakus there. He even takes her to his secret spot overlooking the area, but is unable to take advantage of the situation and confess. She later invites him over to her house, and then invites him to dinner with her family. Kazuya, who has offered to arrange the meal, secretly puts tabasco sauce in all of Tsuyoshi’s food, then offers him a ton of water. The plan is to replace him with a body double when he has to use the restroom. That never goes through as the Aoyama father arrives. Tensions are high and Tsuyoshi excuses himself from the meal turned sour. He comes back to get a handkerchief, only to find Saori crying because of the divorce papers between her parents. He lectures them about their children’s happiness and what they’re doing. Feeling guilty about the situation, Saori’s mother hands her father the divorce papers and walks out. Having seen both of her parents off, Saori leaves the restaurant hand in hand with Tsuyoshi. Everyone on the BBS is happy for Densha until one of them wonders when Hermes will learn about the message board. Ironically, as Tsuyoshi frets over the issue, Keisuke finds out about the it after looking at Misuzu’s computer. He puts two and two together and rushes home to tell Saori. Tsuyoshi finally makes up his mind to tell Saori, but he arrives at her house just as Keisuke shows it to her.

I really enjoyed the balance this episode had: the first half was hilarious while the latter half was quite serious. I was laughing until I cried after hearing Saori say “moe” twice and seeing everyone’s reactions. And Kazuya’s antics were pretty funny too, especially since I didn’t expect him to use a body double for Tsuyoshi.
The message board is really the final obstacle in Tsuyoshi and Saori’s relationship. Once that’s cleared up, there’s nothing really left that Tsuyoshi hasn’t told Saori. However, this hurdle seems to be a pretty big one as Saori even starts to cry after learning about the BBS. You’d think it wouldn’t affect her quite so much since she’s put up with quite a lot up to now, including Tsuyoshi’s coming out as an otaku last episode.
They chose an interesting insert song this week in the form of the english version of Tsubaki’s Sea of Love. I’m not sure whether I like the english or the japanese version, but it is nonetheless a good song. I’ve also been listening to the Densha Otoko OST, and it really reminds me of how good the music of this series is and how much I’ll miss it when it ends.
The Akihabara trip had way too many SHUFFLE! shots, serving only to remind me of the fact that we don’t have any SHUFFLE! this or next week. On that note though, the next episode of Densha Otoko won’t be airing next week either. The note on the preview says it’ll be shown on the 15th, giving it one week off. That means I’ll have absolutely nothing to write about next Thursday (with both SHUFFLE! and Densha Otoko not on). >.>

    Well it had to come to this. She eventually will have to discover the bbs. Now, there’s just two episodes left for them to patch up. Next episode will definately break Tsuyoshi’s heart, leaving the last episode to patch it all up. Damn, sucks to know that the ending to this wonderful drama is coming up…

  • September 1, 2005 at 11:27 pmOmni

    2 episodes? The message on the preview said “次回の「電車男」は9月15日(木)放送奇跡の最終章へ突入”, which I assumed meant that next time is the last episode. Or maybe by final chapter they mean more like final arc?

  • September 2, 2005 at 8:21 amAiko

    AHAH I like that drama !
    I really wonder how she’ll react .. but I don’t think it will be bad as when she discovered he was a otaku , i think it’s less worst :p
    Jinkamo is too funny , i love that girl lol XD
    I just wondered how a drama can have episodes O.o ? It’s the first drama i begin to watch so .. ^^

  • September 2, 2005 at 9:19 ambluemist

    I’m not quite sure, but it seems like the next Densha Otoko will air Sept. 15 as a special (1 1/2 hour instead of the usual 1 hour). Whether it will end by then, I’m not sure too.

    About the next hurdle, I think it’s a lot worse than the otaku thing, because we’re talking about privacy here. Saori will feel violated even more because way of life, secrets and trauma are being blurted all over the message board to be known by complete strangers. It’s like virtual backstabbing.

    Hi I’m Sonja,

    As you may have guessed, I am mad about bargains.
    I am a wife, a mother and I have run my own recruitment business for over twenty years.
    I make my living by giving the best value for money so when I spend it I expect to get the same.

    I love quality items, five star cruises and generally the good things in life and I have found
    that I can afford more of them if I get them at bargain prices.

    This Blog http://bargains-hunter.blogspot.com is for bargain hunters to share information
    so we can all get the best value for our hard-earned money.

    Cheers

    There’s some special secret Sale link on Amazon, EBay, etc. where you can find very good discounts:

    http://bargains-hunter.blogspot.com

    I’ve seen discounts there as low as 75% off sticker Price.

  • November 2, 2007 at 8:27 pmannobiaguesia

    I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
    and I want to get the most bang for my buck.

    Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:

    http://bargains-hunter.blogspot.com/2007/10/how-to-find-bargains-at-amazons-secret.html
    [url=http://bargains-hunter.blogspot.com/2007/10/how-to-find-bargains-at-amazons-secret.html]Amazon Secret Web Pages[/url]

    This is where you’re going to find the “latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers” from
    Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.

    Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.

    You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
    Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit – I’ve seen discounts
    there as low as 75% off sticker price.

    Just discovered a complete list of all marked down products at Amazon, sorted by category
    and % off, ranging from 50% off to 90% off (thanks Sonja for the effort).

    Actually I never thought Amazon would have articles with 90% off, but only in the category
    Electronics there are more than 3000 of them – look for yourself, the list is on

    Amazon, like Britain’s “Jeanie”).
