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!

This is more horrifying then the most horrifying manga* I've read (and i scare easily); sader then the saddest tragedy manga* i've read (which i avoid because I hate tear jerkers); and more romantic the the hundreds of shoujo manga* I have read.

*note: almost all of said hundreds of series have been read in the past couple months....

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 ^^

Evil Genius is doing a great job on this title. If you like Genshiken give this a read, anime so far isn't bad either it's up to episode 2 as of yesterday.

This series is so absurd and the characters are so crazy/depressed/sometimes-high that the only thing you can do is laught like a crazy about their personal dull dramas. At the same time is a serious, hard and depressing series about a group of young guys so repressed by their society that, in their attempts to take themselves off the hole, they only get in it deeper and deeper.
Some people have critiziced that this series has a strange mix of comedy and drama, but I really believe that's the point of it all. A very direct and loud critic to the very complicated and self-destroying hikkikomori problem, but in a very ironic, cynical and funny way...
If only the artist could be better...

Interesting take on the emerging genre of otaku-based main characters in manga and anime, NHK seems stuck between whether it wants to be a drama or a comedy.

While combinations of both come off well in many cases, NHK's characters are so exaggerated and ridiculed that, as the manga starts to become more serious, it becomes hard to empathise with them. This isn't to say that the drama is bad, but that it often comes off awkwardly. This is doubly true when it tries to add humour to a dramatic situation, or vice-versa.

Very hard to rate, but taken as a whole it's a good read. If it was licensed I'd definately be buying it.

Only read until book 2, the main character seems like me so I am very sympathatic about him but the topic is to close to heart so I don't really dare to read this. Sorry,sorry, back to my comments.

Can try. Sometimes funny. Sometimes overboard. AARGGH! Read it yourself. Don't know if to recommend or not!
