Description
From Tokyopop:
Sato Tatsuhiro is a drug-addled "hikikomori" (a Japanese shut-in) who thinks a sinister organization, NHK (Nihon Hikikomori Kyoukai), is the cause of all his problems! He falls in love with a girl, Misaki, who he thinks is trying to assassinate him, but doesn't know how to talk to her or if he can trust her. The more he stays in his house watching anime porn, reading manga, and doing drugs, the harder it is for him to leave. Only Misaki can keep him from rotting away in his own apartment!

I don't think I can properly comment on this manga. So I'll just say it was the most...fulfilling thing I have ever read.

Ever.

In my entire life.

More fulfilling then any other written piece of work, including books.

Strange, isn't it?

Anyways, I don't recommend this as a read for everyone. It's a manga that's...complex. It almost seems to mold itself into whatever the reader wants it to be. I guess I simply enjoyed what I ended up reading.

It's great.

The later chapters deviate a lot from the mood in the beginning. It goes from I'm-a-happy-funny-addict to everything-that-can-go-wrong-with-a-person-personified.

It's one of the few mangas in which I actually do want a happy ending. Usually, it's not good until someone dies.

Frankly, I felt that Misaki could've been developed better [she was more complex than the main character], and the ending was not well paced. It was adrupt and left many loose ends.

Despite it's faults, it really draws you in. Halfway in the series it starts to connect with you personally. If you're facing the type of issues that these characters are, you really can't put it down.

The story itself is so intriguing. Part time through you're hoping the author finally gives him a job, but it never comes. It was, as others have said, a brilliant read. You can interpret it which ever way you want really. Trying to understand the internal meaning to the whole thing isn't gonna help you understand it in the long run, it could've been something the author had had experienced at some point (I doubt it), but you feel yourself more in tune with the main character as it progresses. You can literally feel his sadness. More than once I've thought of this while laying on my bed.

In any case, I don't recommend this series. It is more for those who are in his position that you'll most likely have the same effect, maybe for those that have been in his position before, but I wouldn't go out and recommend it to people I know.

tazman0208's comments are something you have to consider while reading this manga, the ending does end in a very abrupt fashion and it may disappoint a few readers. there is a point to this story that gives it its charm. but the meaning behind this story is also something that is actually very commonly seen in a lot of abstract(artistic) movies that are made in asia. if you are familiar with artistic films, you would know what i am talking about*.

Nothing too deep or hard to understand as long as you are of the right age and read it to the end. The story isnt a rubix cube it just may take a bit of time to sink in. id give it an 8

A Noble Failure

I wish I could say that NHK was a good manga. It is clearly a labor of the author's heart. If only it weren't so excruciating.

I'll admit that I was initially very positive about NHK, but my enjoyment of the manga declined all too quickly. After the first few volumes, the story rapidly spirals away from simply being "the trials and tribulations of a hikkikomori" and develops instead into a study of the interrelationships of the mentally ill. I admire the tackling of such a mature and difficult topic, but I can't say that it's done well. The characters become increasingly irrational and unlikable, and consequently more difficult for the reader to project onto. The narrative becomes increasingly disjointed, and it is often difficult to determine what is fantasy and what is reality. Perhaps the author intended this as a way of re-enforcing the idea of the characters' mental stability, but as a reader it just made me feel more disoriented and alienated from the world of NHK. Whether the attempt is intentional or not, the result jarring and frustrating, as it becomes increasingly difficult to grasp meaning from the manga, if indeed there is any.

While I applaud the author's intent, I find that I can neither enjoy it nor extract any artistic value from it. Though there may be some value to be found in this story, it's an arduous journey getting there.

I had an interesting time with this manga. The depressing parts were carried out so well it managed to make me feel worse about myself. However, I didn't really appreciate the way the mangaka tries to fuck up the characters by injecting a hilariously cruel but unbelievable twist to their situations. Otherwise, the OTT reactions from the main lead are amusing, and I liked the few heart-warming moments. The ending of the manga left me a little unsated, drawing no closure for me nor leaving any clues as to how everyone would end up. *Sigh*

Still a fun ride though, and I liked the messages the mangaka left. Misery does love company and if anything can go wrong, it definitely will. It was quite meaningful.

The first 6 volumes where pretty good, Then it kinda just fell off. I wish it would of been more of him getting cured and really falling in love with the girl. The last 2 volumes felt rushed and loose.

8/10 even with crappy ending.

1. The way Sato is. I mean I've felt like I don't wanna do anything. (I think I spent a whole year without doing anything at all ._. just on the pc, eating, drinking, being with myself, not with my "friends" and stuff...So I'm feeling something while readin' it. =)

That was really good, but I'm not sure how I feel about the shift in tone. The first 3-4 volumes were consistently hilarious. It was going to be the first manga for me to give a 10 to for comedy value - but as it went, it became more and more serious. Depressing, even. There's no change in the subject matter, just how it's presented. I think I would have preferred it to stay as it was - normally I'm all for misery, but in this case not so much.
