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!

hilarious breakdown

this manga is about some of the fallen of the society, the losers and weak, the depressive and the manics. it manage to make such an enjoyable and hilarious manga out of such a heavy topic, thus anyone may be able to read this without lying down on bed, crying. the chapters take mostly this formula = the first 90% is wacky hijinks and the protagonist doing insane stuff, the last 10% is when all the comedic bafoonery get to a peak, and he and us crashed down to the reality, or the reality that he accept where he is a worthless human being.

this is truly a great manga for anyone who love interesting characters.

What a ride.

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.

Like I did. I was wondering how a manga with that kind of synopsis could be a masterpiece. So I read the whole thing, and it is not worth your time.

The few funny moments didn't do it for me... the characters and development were agitating.

Wished for a different ending

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.

I could give it 10 because I really loved it but... I don't feel like it. maybe it's the same as a teacher who can't help but find weaknesses in a test because they don't wanna give the best rate but really, it could have been even better. the ending could be more grand, I liked how it ended, no prob, but it felt like it was weak, it's there "just cause". some part could have been more developed. there were let downs here and there. but frankly speaking, this manga was over the average. it alternated between sad and funny sad-fun swiftly, you cuold just empathise with the protagonnists. probably the sadest manga after Saikano, but instead of giving a slow rythm that never allows you to let go, it had a changing rythm. it oscillated, making you feel just how connected every people were.
enough blabbering, read it, you won't be able to stop.

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. =)

Funny or depressing?   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

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.

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.

7.5

My comment is really not impersonal, but I want to complain, because I gave too high expectatioin on the story itself and spent 6 hours on it.

I really liked the art, I enjoyed the portrait of the male lead in the latter half especially.
And I think I really liked the protagonist, the way he makes decisive decisions.
For these two reasons, I rated 7.5. The story itself, as for me, is a bit underdeveloped and unsystematic.

The plot for this manga could have been better, and I was nettled by some of the nonsenses which appeared at times; au contraire, some changes which could have been developed were settled too abruptly and roughly. And could there be any more coincidences?
The ending is really good... if it were a novel! ... but as a manga, it could have been better illustrated and it might be acceptable or be labeled as "laisser imaginer" for certain readers, but personally, I think it is just so so. Reread value is almost nil for me; because the whole story could have been much better organized.

The average 8.25 is a Just Judge, according to my experience. But I am shocked to have seen that there are quite few proportion of low ratings (3 votes for "1", 3 votes for "2"... up to now). No offense, I admit I have the potential to become an Hikikomori. - -
The ending is similar to some Korean movie I saw before, which I am sure most of you are familiar with.

LIKE ZORO SAID, ONE CAN HARDLY FIND THE REASON TO RECOMMEND IT..
Now that I think of it, the reason why there are many Hikikomori in Japan might be that there are so many these kinds of mangas which give them "hopes", however, they are knocked down into the deeper abyss of despair by the crude reality. I am sad. No idea why. This is a nice subject if it can be seriously helpful, but I am afraid it is just for the sake of entertaining.
