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!

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.

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.

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..

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.

This manga was kind of boring. Don't get me wrong I only read about 2 volumes. I found that it wasn't as funny as the user comments said it was. Usually I find how good a manga is by the comments, but people have different taste I guess. My opinion revolves around the fact that I thought this manga had no excitement in my eyes. I gave this series a 4 for the art, since its well developed. I'd like to see this author do a better series.

It's so hot! PUT IT IN ME!

This should be the reaction everyone has when they read/watch this. Seriously. Good and unique story. Nice characters. Very smexy art. The only thing that this thing lacks is swords.

Edit by mod: SPOILER WARNING



Very funny and well written dramatic comedy. Its the story of a lifeless depressed collage dropout who havnt left his appartement for ages. During the story he has to deal with all the "nolifeproblems" like never leaving the house and being unable to face ppls, getting kinda pedophile, getting into hentai games, falling for a cheap merchendise trick and being left with a huge debt, comitting suicde and not succeeding, losing her old loved sepai to some strange arranged marrige guy even though he and her sempai kind loved each other, getting kinda into drugs, getting addicted to computer games, and so on. He really has to deal with everything and yet the auther created the characters so good and funny and believable that you can think yourself in their positions. Very nice and funny and sometimes sad to read. Drawings are good/decent, sometimes creazy exaggerated but very funny therefore.
