akihabara atto deep
@DEEP


Based on a novel of Ira Ishida.


This drama took place on Akihabara, Akiba for short, a district in Tokyo that is full of mangas, anime, figurines, maid cafe's, cosplayers, electronics, video games and much more.

Otaku, commonly treated as outcasts in the society, are the fanatics of such themes.


The story focuses on a group of people composing of 6 Otakus namely Page, Box, Daruma, Taiko, Akira and Izumu. They were brought together by Yui, the one who made the website "Yui's Lifeguard" that tends to help people mainly Otakus through chatting online. These 6 Otakus were regular visitors of the site
and they sought relief on Yui's words.


When Yui died mysteriously because of an overdose of drugs, the group decided named their group as [email protected] (as suggested by Yui before she died) and will work as "trouble shooters" that vows to help and protect people of akihabara and akihabara itself. But the president of DigiCap (Digital Capital),a company that is very influential to the world's Information Tecnology and electronics, Nakagomi Takeshi, who had once a relationship with Yui but broke upbecause of opposite wills, attempts to help [email protected] but had the hidden intention to destroy them in order to obtain Yui's AI which Izumu programmedand had developed its own will. Nakagomi thought that it would be a big thing for
the company so he tried to get it from them.


Together they will be on an adventure being trouble shooters, like helping a cosplayer a female reporter, solving problems between two maid cafe's and more.

Characters:




Kazama Shunsuke as Page

Page is @DEEP's leader. He had little communication with anybody so everytime he says something, he stutters and sometimes teased by other members especially when he says "A-a-a-a-al-right! P-l-l-l-la-a-aning t-t-t-time!" at the beggining of each mission but he has a computer aid that speaks every word he writes at it which later upgraded by Taiko to sound more likely of Page's voice. He barely used this in the drama. He has no particular expertise but he makes a good leader who thinks about the sake of its members or most likely, friends.



Ikuta Toma as Box

Box is @DEEP's graphic art designer. He designed Akira's Webpage and also [email protected]'s site.
He also designed Akira's fighting suit as well as costumes to be used in a cosplay event. He is obsessed with cleanliness that's why he wears a pair of gloves and changes them every two hours. He is also afraid of women that everytime he gets close to one, foam comes out of his mouth. But he is not afraid of the "2D women" such as maids, female reporters, figurines, girl cosplayers, female anime characters and such, because they are just for entertainment acoording to him. He suffers from these conditions because of his past.



Hoshino Gen as Taiko

Taiko is @DEEP's music expert. He creates ringtones as a hobby and likes to play guitar and compose a song especially from his first love. He has the ability to know which voice is from who once he listened to it. He made the music effects of Akira and [email protected]'s webpage. Everytime he sees flashes of light, he suddenly freezes. His name came from a musical instrument to show his deep ability.


Himura Yuuki as Daruma

Daruma is @DEEP's cosplay expert. He makes costume of some of the most famous
characters in anime, manga, cartoon, video games and more and he likes to mimicry them. He once made a Nobita (from Doraemon) costume. He was a shut-in person because he had no confidence dealing with people outside. Somehow, his costumes gives him a boost of confidence. He sometimes wears mask when going outside their office. He also worked as @DEEP's accountant.


Kosaka Yuka as Akira

Akira is @DEEP's fighting maid. She is very well known in akihabara because of her strength and beauty. She is very good in martial arts and she participates in a cat-fight (a fight between women) every secong friday of the month. She also works as a maid in Akane-chin cafe. She provided the initial fund for [email protected] by winning a huge amount during a cat-fight sponsored by Nakagomi Takeshi, the president of DigiCap. With this money, she rented an office which was formerly a crematory office, and bought computer parts, posters, mangas, figurines, electronics and more. Page, Box, and Taiko made her website while Daruma made her fighting suit.



Matsushima Hatsune as Izumu

Izumu is @DEEP's hacking prodigy and programmer. In just seconds, she can access on somebody else's website or computer. She programmed Yui's AI which later developed its own will. Izumu cannot live without computer on her side. she suffers from a condition which causes her to have an icey-blue eyes.

through her words. She once had a relationship with Nakagomi Takeshi, the president
of DigiCap, but they broke up because she wants to help people while Nakagomi wants to gain money.
Izumu created her AI, which replaces her when she's not around and when she died, which later
developed its own will and acted like Yui as if she was alive. Nakagomi Takeshi first helped
the [email protected] anonymously but he had hidden intentions to destroy the group to get Yui's AI
which he thought would be very useful for the future of the company. He also like to eat lots of candies, esp lollipop and "umaibou"

BOX-kun!!! I really... really REALLY like toma!! And he looks better than other male characters here... I think because his character the most 'sane' person after Akira in this dorama,, heheheheh...

Btw.. what's Akira doing in the Otaku group?? She's very normal!! The maid job is merely a job for her.. but I don't think she's an otaku at all... Izumi is pretty normal too, but she's still a computer otaku. Daruma was a joke, very bad first impression! I don't find him attractive at all,, except when he appears on that "Friend" costume, lol.. but he has a pretty decent character development, though..

I think it has something to do with her growing up in Akihabara until they bought another apartment somewhere else. I don't really rmember because that was episode 2 or 3.

Yeah Page is cool. He seems to be the most strategically smart in all of them. He only doesn't seem like it because of his stuttering problem. He also thinks before he acts. He's been showing his brains since episode 1. The only problem is that since he's one of the weaker otakus, he never really had friends before. So he was too emotionally intact to everyone to take action near the beggining.
