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

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 January 14 2013.

Compare with Train Man (a.k.a [[Franchise/TrainMan Densha Otoko]]) 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 ''Anime/{{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.
--> '''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 "IIm 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 16 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, hes pretty nonchalant about it being discovered.
* ScaryBlackMan: Molester Man certainly thinks so.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Kansai in kimono.
* ShoutOut: It ''is'' drawn by YOKO--
** [[Franchise/TrainMan Densha Otoko]] 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.
* TsurimeEyes: Played straight with Kansai.
* VerbalBackspace: Molester Man, in chapter 21, really needed to think before speaking.
