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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Probably a better manga than I think but I read it over too long a space of time and so didn't get what could have been the best out of it. Enjoyed it though, liked the art.

The first time you read this, it will probably seem like the author drew this whole thing while high on LSD. However, it becomes much more thought-provoking after a couple times. Worth a read, though they could have done something about the length - sometimes it just starts to drag on.

Be warned though, it really is like an acid trip the first time through.
