NHK ni Youkoso!

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!

The story
not really a story. A hikikomori guy gets "saved" by a girl. But I donít think he was even a hiki. the brother of the chairman was though. He was just a lazy guy with social phobia. Misaki was a terrible person. In the beginning though, things were more careless and funny and the characters were even likeable, but near the end, there came the melodrama and the last volume was really confusing, the ending wasnít good. The dark humor was the best part of the manga, but there wasnít so much of it later on.

Art was good and I think the first volumes were better drawn than later ones. Might be my imagination because I didnít enjoy last volumes. Actually it was one of the better arts I saw in manga. Not completely awesome, but great.

The trash of the society but still on the line of likeable. My favorite was Yamazaki. Misaki was the most f/cked up. she needs to see a psychiatrist, pronto. Satou wasnít that terrible. Unless you count the drugs. All of the characters were miserable and depressed. I couldnít really like those character, as soon as I started to like someone, they changed to even lower lowlife or they made something that made me angry.

the beginning was much better than later volumes. Especially the ending was unsatisfying. The anime was better (at least what I remember). Had more humor what was a good point in the manga, but the last volumes forgot that.

I'm still giving it a high score, for it was original, also, the first volumes were great and the anime was good too. the last volume though...

The best word to describe this manga is 'irreverent'. From kiddy porn to popping pills to self-mutilation, no topics are sacred; the author approaches all with the same careless dark humour. The characters are self-loathing, selfish, angsty scum who you may like but probably won't - at any rate, you probably wouldn't want to take them out for coffee. The story reads as if the author was thinking 'fuck this' the whole time he was writing it and I think it's pretty good at what it tries to do. I did feel that the first 30-35 chapters were superior to the last 5-10. The story wanders near the end and the final character and relationship development aren't fleshed out. The ending itself was underwhelming, not the crazy spectacle I was hoping for but not terrible either.

Jinx, you pretty much wrote out what was already on my mind. I agree with how this manga is a very surreal reflection of reality, but also truthful in that manner. In addition I am surprised to see how many elements of NHK can still be related to a western-lifestyle where terms like "hikki" aren't coined with as much disgust.

Also, the 'over-done' characters in this manga particularly have been a nice change from the typical Shounen hero or whatnot. Besides, what most Anime's / Manga's do is to just blow regular day to day life things into gigantic proportions... and at least it is done right in NHK.

Funny storylines, intelligent themes and great character development in both the manga and anime versions of this series. Satou is the "all-time loser" and everyman at the same time. Can get kind of dark though, so don't read it if you don't like that kind of thing.

Intriguing story about a very real social problem in his journey to fight it. There was a couple of things that didn't do in the anime from the manga and that was interesting too.

It's kinda similar to Genshiken, though, the mood is wierd and not recommended for weak-hearted ^^
