Molester Man is a doujinshi that is mostly from the point of view of a university student who calls himself Molester Man. The premise is that by a series of misunderstandings Molester Man was mistaken as a stalker and HilarityEnsues. The story has a serious side too; its essence is the classic RagsToRiches plot being driven by romance. As implied by the story's plot, the reader sees Molester Man grow as a person and gradually move towards a happier state of being.

The art is by Yokota Takuma (a.k.a YOKO) who is also responsible for the art and story for OnaniMasterKurosawa and Bakatsun. The doujinshi is based on a real story posted on 2ch in the VIP thread. It has a somewhat unusual narrative as it's fairly common to have the majority of the chapters composed of texts.

It is completely translated to english courtesy of ‘Boon Scanlations’[[http://boonscanlations.blogspot.co.uk/]].

There is a live action adaption of Molester Man; the link to it is [[http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XODQ4NDMyNjg=.html here]] although it's only available in Japanese as of January 2nd 2013.

There is also an unofficial and incomplete youtube adaption of Molester Man linked [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Doppelmetz here]]. However it's only in Japanese as of Januray 14 2013.

Compare with Train Man (a.k.a DenshaOtoko) whose protagonist is also socially awkward, albeit in a different way, and also meets a love interest through an incident. Though after the incident the protagonist from Train Man was seen in a much more positive light than the protagonist from Molester Man.

!! This series contains examples of:
* AmbiguouslyGay: The male waiter.
--> '''Male Waiter''': You seem to have become manlier than the last time we met. Wanna do it?
** All of this was said while loosening his shirt although to be fair he wasn't completely serious. The question is if it was flirtation or just teasing/trolling.
* ApologizesALot: Somewhat justified with Glasses in chapter 2.
* ArtEvolution: Compare chapter 1 to chapter 21
* ArtShift: YOKO often drew the characters resembling popular manga artwork style like ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', {{Manga/Bleach}}, and {{Doraemon}} for [[ShoutOut comedic purpose]].
* ASimplePlan: Will Molester Man ever catch a break?
* BackStory: Only mentioned by Molester Man but [[FriendlessBackground its]] [[LonersAreFreaks pretty]] [[KidsAreCruel dark]]
** Loli's relationship backstory is summarised by Molester Man, [[SarcasmMode she has really good taste]].
* BerserkButton: Molester Man has a few. Sometimes, like in chapter 2, he goes off with a snap.
* BlatantLies
--> '''Molester Man''': Frankly speaking some of it made me so frisky it gave me an erec-err... I meant that it made me shake with anger.
* BluntYes: Used by Molester Man in chapter 20 and it shows his growth
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Molester Man has shown some mild signs of this in Ch1[[https://plus.google.com/photos/110793535724604745254/albums/5814158062473491697/5814158065579338194?banner=pwa]]
* CompanionCube: Sachiko.[[spoiler:"She" is an onahole.]]
* ComplimentBackfire: Molester Man.
* CoolBigSis: Molester's Sister
* CornerOfWoe: Molester Man. Naturally this includes his separate personalities in chapter 18.
* DeathGlare: Kansai gives a pretty nasty one [[https://plus.google.com/photos/110793535724604745254/albums/5814158062473491697/5814158114645185506?banner=pwa]]
* [[DecoyProtagonist Decoy Deuteragonist]]: Miss Understanding seems like she'll be the LoveInterest and deuteragonist for the first 3 chapters. Chapter 4 reintroduces Kansai and she quickly takes hold of the bulk of the chapter. By Chapter 5, Kansai takes center stage and from then-on, Miss Understanding is relegated to being a background character.
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Averted, despite the ComplimentBackfire trope above.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Tsun and Boon from Yoko's next work, ''Tsunbaka'', appear as background characters in a few scenes.
* EmpathicEnvironment: In Chapter 1, it starts raining just before it got worse.
* ExtremeDoormat: Molester Man tends to think of himself as this whenever Kansai gets angry.
* FirstGirlWins: [[spoiler: Played with. It's not Miss Understanding, but Kansai who Molester ends up seriously falling in love with and ends up with. Oddly enough, though, she was only second by a matter of a few MINUTES.]]
* FirstPersonSmartass: Though molester man is a NiceGuy, he has his moments in later chapters.
* GoodBadGirl: Kansai is implied to be one.
* GuysAreSlobs: Averted, The only male room we see is Molester Man's and it's pretty tidy... perhaps not clean though.
* HasAType: Molester Man's type is Miss Understanding.
** [[spoiler:Miss Understanding has a type but it isn't at all like Molester Man.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Molester Man plays this straight starting from chapter 2.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Reversed as Molester Man orginally had a ''negative'' opinion of Glasses and Kansai, downplayed as both of the character's morality ''wasn't'' obvious and subverted as he [[RuleOfThree ''independently'']] changed his opinion.
* HypocriticalHumour: A meta example, that is unintentional, is by YOKO (OnaniMasterKurosawa).
--> '''YOKO''': By the way, even if Sachiko is actually part the original threads I am still not sure if it was right to include her in this manga. I fear that this may have turned into a real masturbation manga now.
* ImagineSpot: Molester is especially prone to this.
* IncrediblyLamePun: 'Michael Joudan', that is all.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:In chapter 20, Molester choose to never meet both Kansai and Loli anymore to preserve their friendship.]]
** Also Implied by [[spoiler: Kansai while Molester was after Mrs Understanding and when Loli appeared to have a chance]]
* IWantToBeARealMan: Molester has shades of this and even has an overbearing father to boot.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Kansai isn't from Kansai but has the attitude...well at least according to [[UnreliableNarrator Molester Man]].
* LoveTriangle: [[spoiler:Molester loves Kansai, Loli loves Molester, and Kansai and Loli are good friends. [[GreenEyedMonster Jealousy]] ensues.]]
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: One could argue that this applies to Miss Understanding, Kansai and even Molester Man.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The thread made this very clear to Molester Man in chapter 12 and they didn't say it nearly as nicely as the trope.
* OhCrap: In Ch1 after a crowd begins to gather around a pretty convincing NotWhatItLooksLike Molester Man says [[OhCrap "I…I’m done for.”]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: The whole cast.
* {{Otaku}}: Molester Man is not only a manga/anime Otaku, but also a snake otaku.
* OutOfFocus: Miss Understanding though she does have chapter 15 all to herself and Molester Man.
* PoorCommunicationKills: What causes the main conflict.
* PornStash: Molester Man has one, somewhat of a subversion as unlike most fictional characters with one, he’s pretty nonchalant about it being discovered.
* ScaryBlackMan: Molester Man certainly thinks so.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Kansai in kimono.
* ShoutOut: It ''is'' drawn by YOKO--
** DenshaOtoko was mentioned in chapter 1
** ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''
** The main characters from Manga/{{Shigurui}} make a cameo appearance in chapter 14
** Chapter 14.5 on the last page, there is an ArtShift so that Molester Man resembles [[Manga/DeathNote Kira]] during his iconic laugh
** [[{{Manga/Bleach}} Lord Molester]] in chapter 18 just wants his black tea
** The waiter is a blatant reference to Abe from ''Kuso Miso Technique''. Molester Man even says "[[MemeticMutation Uho!]] It's that waiter again."
* TaremeEyes: Played straight with Miss Understanding and subverted with Loli.
* TheirFirstTime: [[spoiler:Molester and Kansai in chapter 18.]]
* TheOneGuy: Not so obvious since Molester is the main character but it's true from the perspective of any other major character
* ThirdWheel: Molester Man sees himself as this in chapter 2 for a while.
* TryingNotToCry: Molester Man plays this straight a lot near the end.
** Kansai also plays it straight in chapter 14.
** Loli [[RuleOfThree plays it straight]] in chapter 11.
*** And again in chapter 20.
* {{Tsundere}}: It's a rare male case, but Molester Man towards Miss Understanding which is demonstrated below.
--> '''Molester Man''' (Thinking): GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE, B**CH!!! YOU FELT SINCERITY IN MY WORDS!? WELL, I FELT PRESUMPTUOUSNESS IN YOUR WORDS!! AND YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE CUTE LIKE OGURA YUUKO!!!
* TsurimeEyes: Played straight with Kansai.
* VerbalBackspace: Molester Man, in chapter 21, really needed to think before speaking.
