Tokkyu Tanaka San Go

Aka Tokkyu Tanaka 3 Go
Tanaka Ichiro played by Tanaka Koki (My Boss, My Hero; Kat-Tun) seems destined to be involved with trains maybe because he was born on a train. On his way to Sanryudai the nickname of his 3rd rate university on his new motorcycle, a handkerchief covers his face causing an accident. The handkerchief is actually train memorabilia, the girl who dropped it is being harassed by three guys. Tanaka falls for her when a sudden gust of wind reveals her train panties, she becomes his personal heroine, the girl he has always been searching for. He saves her from the yakuza saying leave them to me, so she does. She leaves and he doesn’t know anything about her but he still has the handkerchief. He continues onto school, his first day and becomes involved with the train club when they see the handkerchief he’s carrying. The she is Meguro Terumi played by Kuriyama Chiaki (Kill Bill, Battle Royale) and the two main members of the train club are Hanagata Kei played by Tsukamoto Takashi and Momoyama Seishi played by Akiyama Ryuji.
This is a funny show especially after the train otaku are introduced. But the highlight of the show is when Tanaka pulls out the Kosaka Yuka (Akihabara@Deep) body pillow from Hanagata’s closet. Otaku come in many forms I love shows about obsessions and Tanaka is obsessed with women and the club is of course obsessed with trains. At one point the club saves the day due to their encyclopedic knowledge of trains and schedules. I highly recommend this to anyone who like a good laugh.
