Anything densha otoko related lost all coolness at least one year ago.

Really? I thought the tv series just ended? Anyone seen the movie?

A TV series? Sounds a bit ludicrous.

A movie should be OK, but the story is too simple to make a dorama from it... I just don´t see how they could make the plot last for more than 3 episodes.

You have to understand what Iggy means by "cool". When he says "it's not cool anymore" he means "it's just gotten "cool"". Meaning, when people start liking something, it's UNCOOL. I can't stop hearing raves about Densha Otoko. Normally, that would indicate that it's "cool", but no. When people start liking it, then it's uncool.

Actually, Densha Otoko was nice when it was just a nice little story in a thread ; it could or could not be true, it wasn't anybody's concern.
When it became used as a tool to say "see, even 2chanellers can be nice guys", it became borderline insulting to 2chanellers, and I understand their rage.
Also, it was nice as a little scale story on a BBS, but its popularity amongst ordinary people is totally out of proportion with its actual value.

I had no idea. I actually don't know a thing about the show. It's one of those things that I avoid simply because it's difficult to do so. Like after so many people recommend a movie to me, I can't stand it anymore, and I'll refuse to see the movie.

BUT! That aside, is what I said true?

I think Godô would loose all his appeal if GS3 was to be released in the US.
So yes, I think on a few particular products, you are 100% right.

I watched the TV series and I thought it was pretty cool. Especially with Tsuyoshi's action figures in the background in episode 8. I know in episode 2 one of the songs is from Kamen Rider but I forgot which series. Episode 7 is a real treat if you remember the VHS version to Gundam movie 2. It's kind of interesting that Tsuyoshi's father played Nishi in the original Ashita no Joe series, I'd like to see how he looked it 30 years ago compared to how he looked in the series.

I also remember seeing posters of the movie back in Japan for July but I ended up seeing Z Gundam instead =P

Anyway, for a special treat, here is the original Daicon IV opening to which the TV series opening is based off of.
