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 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.

Funny or depressing?

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.

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.

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.

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!

Well, I couldn't think of a good Subject for this comment and since the series had that 'Welcome' on its title, I thought of giving it a reply or something.

Hmmm, what can I say, its not like the other Shounen mangas that I have read since when it often dwels with the psychological well being of characters, I often associate it with Seinen mangas.

The reality is close as humor gets thrown in a varity of angles but, its obviously not for everyone to like. It may seem difficult to others or irrational in fact. 'Normal' people would be doing such things in the first place yet, like all characters portrayed in the series, they all have flaws that they had to deal with. Its amazing to suggest that even with the main protagonist's own situation, he ends up helping those around him.

If you can't appreciate this manga, try reading it again sometime..

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).

Fun story about a loser who goes through almost everything that could happen in a losers life. pyramis schemes, computer games you name it. I guess everyone in Satos position would like to have a Misaki in their lives.
