Japanese virtual dinner series for the lonely otaku

Let’s face it, no one really likes eating alone all the time.  That’s why Oshokuji no Jikan 素人・THEお食事の時間~私といっしょに食べようよ~ is a DVD series aimed at lonely  otaku guys who either work all day, have no friends or have no social skills to land a date or a combination of all three. Luckily for them, the folks at K-Network produced a 3 DVD virtual dinner date series where  the viewer pretends he’s eating a meal with a (girl) friend.
