Synopsis by Mark Deming

Can a loser impress the girl of his dreams despite his many personal flaws? Toshiyuki Tannishi (Kazunobu Mineta) is a guy in his late twenties whose life has been stuck in idle for some time. He has a non-think job filling vending machines for a toy company, he has few friends, he still lives with his folks and he's obsessed with pornography. Toshiyuki is also still a virgin and mostly hopeless with women, but he's struck up a friendship with a cute female co-worker, Chiharu (Mei Kurokawa) that could potentially turn into a romance. Toshiyuki becomes uncharacteristically optimistic when Chiharu still seems interested in him after he mistakenly lends her an especially vile porn DVD, but when she begins showing an interest in Aoyama (Ryuhei Matsuda), a considerably more handsome toy designer, Toshiyuki starts losing his grip on reality, and it doesn't help that he's discovered Chiharu's cheerful neighbor Shiho (You) happens to be a prostitute. Boizu On Za Ran (ka {#Boys On The Run) was written and directed by Daisuke Miura, and adapted from the manga by Daisuke Miura.
