This dorama was surprising entertaining, lots of overacting and impossible stuff, but entertaining none the less.
Akira(Kousaka Yuka) was my favorite character, strong, tough and super cute at the same time, i want to marry a girl like her lol.
The rest of the otaku crew was great too, Page(Kazama Shunsuke) was a little annoying sometimes but played his part very well anyway. For the secondary cast i have to take my hat off for Tousaka(Matsuda Satoshi), the genius hacker that worked for Nakagomi(Kitamura Kazuki), Tousaka was a really good secondary character.
Many things made me laugh during this dorama: the cosplays(specialy the Nobita and Cobra ones lol); Akira as Lum was so damn cute, the indian street sellers, the ugly maid(Rui) and Box´s(Ikuta Toma) phobia of women.
This is a very funny dorama with some dark parts but overall very entertaing.
Note: Nakagomi´s Kaneda Bike from Akira was one of the most awesome things i have ever seen.

Love this drama. The characters come in so many colors. Lots of character development throughout the show... but i would have liked more character building.
Taiko and Page were my favorite. Taiko was pretty cool and funny when he freezes... not to mention when he goes "SUPER OTAKU" toward the end of the season. Page-kun was just so cool because he was the leader and had a stutter.
Box and Izumi were cool too. I like Izumi because she was so Kawaii and her eyes were cool. Box was okay, i like story but he wasn't too special.
Akira was cool, she wasn't super hot to me as the show made her to be. Girls that can kick ass are cool.
Doruma was okay, kind of the annoying character no one likes but is just there for the stupid jokes.
The villian was okay - the "Ultimate OTAKU" turns out to be pretty powerful and dorky at the same time.
Yui-san... she was weird, but tied the show together.
I gave this show a 9.5... because i am an OTAKU!

An Otaku drama that can be confusing for those who do not have an idea of the Otaku culture in Japan. Thanks to Densha Otoko, I at least know what an Otaku is, and that Akihabara is their sacred place. Akihabara@DEEP potrays even more about the otakus and their lifestyle (eating oden & umaibo, going to 'maid' cafe).
This drama is a bit confusing at the beginning, and you just got to be patient and watch through the first 3 episodes. Then the frame of the story sort of kicks in, and you begin to develop an interest in the characters.
Definitely a different sort of drama than the ones I'm used to, and there are a lot of new actors in it. Although I prefer the older bunch of actors (Kimura, Takenouchi, Sorimachi, etc), the current array of fresh young actors are probably better suited for this kind of series.

It is kind of an IWGP meets Densha Otoko....
For those who liked Densha, Akihabara@DEEP is waaaaay better than that! Altough i must say that some actors really sux... specially Kosaka Yuko... i mean... shes beatiful and can put some really amazing fighting scenes... but her acting skills r far from being the best....
And those "u must watch the DVD" parts r really annoying! I mean... c'mon.. how desperate one can be to sell those DVDs...
Nways.. its a good dorama afterall... really worth a try... An Akihabara's version of IWGP... really funny!

This was such a pleasant suprise! I really loved the casting and every episode was worth watching (hard to say for most doramas). It was really hilarious, just my kind of humor--so lame, it's funny! Each character had their annoying moments though.. but it was just that, just moments. Box-kun was my favorite character; Toma really grew on me after watching this. I'd have to say it's one of the funniest doramas I've seen. Loved it!

I'm surprised that there isn't a write up for this shower. Ikuta Toma stars in this show about a group of Otaku (avid anime/manga fanatics) who solve crimes and mysteries within Akihabari, (a sanctuary for the Otaku).
It's a hilarious drama, though ridiculous and perverted, and there are a few annoying parts. VERY small details, but all around -the dorkiness and comedy overrides it all.

wow.......... I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!!!!!!.......everyone was so wacky and cool which i love and just love the whole concept of the story it is very touching and funny :D some of the things they did were so stupid and funny at the same time it had me shouting WTF? and lmao at the same time :D after i watched this somehow it put me in such a good mood :D very good :D

It was a little bit dark at first but it gets better after every episode. Somehow you become curious and interested as to why Yui died and why she made such a group. I was looking forward as to what case they will be solving in the next episode. Daruma is definitely the one providing the big laughs here with his different cosplay in each episode.
|9. ||Comments by ABINTRA [Rating: 8/10]|
I'd definitely recommend this drama. It's different from anything else out there, which kept me interested. Very funny. At first, the characters threw me off... like, these aren't your typical pretty, perfectly lovable characters! WTF! But I soon came to appreciate their lameness. XD Page is just too adorable! I want to marry him!

Not exceptionally good nor bad.It opened up another world for me and allowed me to learn a little more of Japanese culture(in Akihabara at least).It is pretty funny but rather than thinking of her as a saviour,I think Yui is freaky.Not a watch-at-all-cost drama but a watchable one when you really have nothing better to watch.

The dumb, cheesy ending spoiled this for me. Else it would have been pretty good for all its dark, creepy but weird and amusing otaku references. Either way, if you're somewhat interested in the otaku culture, this can be quite an interesting show. Daruma scares me to hell, though Toma gave a very good performance here.

Flashy, loud, hysteric, second degree and totally over the top. The characters are loveable (yet annoying) and the overall design is funky. It´s a bit too geeky and weird to appeal to the masses but if you take it as an entertaining life-action-anime, and if you are a bit of an otaku at heart, this should be fun.

A pretty good rival to Densha Otoko. If you wanted to watch an otaku/akihabara drama, and you had to pick between Densha Otoko and this, you should definitely pick this. It has humor, interesting characters, and drama. I even started crying near the last episodes when... *ahem* something happened... NO SPOILERS!

Still in the middle of watching this, but loving it so far. Not what I would consider a "quality show" since there isn't much of a plot, but highly entertaining and the characters are quirky,colorful, and loveable. Anime/manga fans will probably enjoy the references to Akihabara and otaku culture.
|15. ||Comments by moonchyld [Rating: 9/10]|
unexpectedly very entertaining!!! i love how weird and quirky everything was~ FAR FAR better than the movie version! the cast was superb, they were really convincing as akihabara otakus unlike the movie's cast. special mention to kitamura for his awesome performance as nakagomi takeshi!
|16. ||Comments by Gloves [Rating: 6/10]|
Anti-heroistic, comic-esque characters form a "rescue" team where everyone turns out to have a unique power. Their abilities combined, they are ready to fight the unjustice. The cliched plot outline is.. well, cliched, but the irony towards lifeless otakus is a working theme.
|17. ||Comments by Patazilla [Rating: 8/10]|
I liked it! Very inventive with many great ideas... but somehow I didn't really like the ending... that Yui was that important and all the trouble with Nakagomi Takeshi. But nevertheless absolutely watch-worthy and with a variety of superb characters!
|18. ||Comments by Sleepingstar [Rating: 6/10]|
Well atleast it's different from other shows, though I must say there's also some wasted potential here since it could have easily been better. If you know things about otaku culture, and can stand and enjoy humor used in drama you might like it.
|19. ||Comments by PaperCaged [Rating: 8/10]|
Fun and crazy. It was very manga-like, which I loved. The main characters were all very interesting and different. I love anime and manga myself, so it was fun looking in on the otaku world in Akihabara.

Haven't finished yet and am unsure if I ever will. It's not bad but the sillyness/stupidity gets old to me personally. If that's your type of humor then you'll prolly enjoy this drama.
|21. ||Comments by Cerebus [Rating: 8/10]|
Great fun, a sort mixture of Scooby Doo and the UK series Spaced. Fast and frantic, and just the right level of silliness, although the final episode may taken things a bit too far.

Funny and dark. The end was a bit of a let down, but overall really fun.

welcome to the Otaku World. the group of six people who become the troubleshooter in Akihabara. I found it really interesting story and funny
|28. ||Comments by balflear [Rating: 5/10]|
I watch this for the comedy, especially Daruma's disasterous cosplaying. The story is somewhat entertaining, but not really anything special.
|29. ||Comments by tabana [Rating: 8/10]|
Starts slow, but boy this drama is fun to watch. They're not taking themselves seriously and one episode, ep 7 IIRC, is pure gold. Loved it.

OMG, I wish real life otaku were like them. Their life seems so fun, and it would be nice to be able to go on all those adventures.
