From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–9—Based on transcripts from an Internet message board, Train Man tells the story of a nervous, nerdy young man who meets the girl of his dreams in a chance encounter on the subway. He talks about it on a bulletin board for lonely singles, and the collective advice of the anonymous Internet community provides him with the knowledge and confidence to pursue this budding romance. While the artwork lacks depth and deftness, this manga successfully depicts both the multiple personages of the online community and their computerized forms of communicating emotion and code. The layouts aid immensely in adding personality and action to what is effectively a story depicting the writing of a modern epistolary tale. That process of showing computer screens and their immobile observers could have been deadly dull, and it is not. So while some of the figure work lacks finesse, it can largely be forgiven in light of the artwork's other strengths. The translation is quite good, with a solid voice and current references that help make the setting and exposition connect with readers. And while the romance is obviously the central movement of the plot, the protagonist's self-reinvention grows from the generosity of his online peers, and it is the depiction of this supportive relationship that is the most compelling.—Benjamin Russell, Belmont High School, MA

From Publishers Weekly:

The second of three separate manga takes on this story, Del Rey offers the shojo (girl's) version of the tale that has had a deep impact on Japanese culture, also appearing as a novel, an anime and most recently a live action movie. Shy otaku (obsessive fan) Ikumi Saiki spends more time in the popular Internet forum Channel 2 than he does interacting with real human beings. Yet Saiki yearns to find love. An incident on a train leads Saiki to stand up for a group of women being bullied by a thug, and one woman, Mai Kohinata, seeks him out to express her thanks. With Channel 2 carefully guiding him, Saiki begins a courtship that he hopes will blossom into true love. From a makeover and a wardrobe update to learning to act with confidence, Saiki grows up both on and offline with Mai and all of Channel 2 looking on. Ocha adapts the story originally written by Nakano into a charming and heartfelt love story, finding an art style that seamlessly melds Ikumi's geeky charm with Mai's beauty. In shojo land, Train Man becomes a timeless love story. (Nov.)
