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!

7.5   
Rating: 7.5 / 10.0

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.

Weirdest manga I ever read.
Never read any manga like this.Confuse when reading, even more confuse when it end.Is it good or bad? I can't tell. I can't rate this manga.

Still wonder why misaki act like madly in love with satou since near beginning of story.
Still wonder about senpai's diary ,did she care for him or what? If so why in many chapters she act like no more than friend to him.(in some chapter she even don't interest in him at all) Then again, if she don't care why she intimate with him too much in some chapters.

This story deals with a few issues but is a wonderful read and you may even learn a couple things out of it. Although the pacing is very abrupt and things change dramatically within a short amount of time. There is also comedy present in it which is nice bonus.

I do feel the irony in this! It some how makes me want to get up and do something about my situation, lol. But in the end I always come back to one problem... life smile. Anyways, it was a really good and enjoyable read. It did teach me a couple of things though, which I am greatfull for the author for that smile. Lol I sound pitiful! Well just give it a chance. its actually hilarious!

One of those really unique mangas out there. For those who grasp the true meaning behind this story and the authors intentions you will find that this is truly worth the time to read. Some people where critisizing how the characters didn't make sense and that they couldn't relate to them. To me I think that was the point, and if one really looks deep within ones self you will find similar sentiments and traits to one of the characters in this story.
Art is great, really enjoyed it. Also, loved the romance between the two leads but was hoping for a fatefull encounter towards the very end of the manga (even though I believe that it was Misaki that was ringing his door bell at the end).

The main characters are balanced between hilariously funny and really f*cking pathetic. In the same way the story moves from comdey to drama. Great art.

Story: The story is...weird, but true. All of us here (I believe) know the feeling of just sitting in front of the computer all day long, be it playing MMORPG or watching anime. Some of us do it because we enjoy it (from this idea came Genshiken). Some of us do it to escape the world and from this idea came NHK.

Characters: Yes they are overdone, but that is the point of them. From the over otaku to the angel to the hikikomori. Yet behind these overdone masks there are times when we could see their underlying self. A person who is simply afraid of what other people think of him (god knows I've been in that position a lot). A wise yet twisted person, who seeks to escape, but knew the truth (been there too). A person who rescues others, because they feel that they need to, and actually just wanted to be love (What the heck, I've went trough all of this. Go figures). I'll say excellent character design

Art: Not the best, but good enough so I have nothing to complain about, really...

Favorite moment: When Misaki did Freud's psycho analysis (poor girl). That was Hilarious. -AND- "However depressing or painful... we would still return to this idiotic life."
