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!

between those funny and almost crazy parts there are really touching scenes that show you the cruel reality of being a social outsider.
Things are overdone, as the characters are. But yet a very authentic story.

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.

I loved this series. I spent my whole weekend reading it and it was worth it. All i really have to say is this is the definition psychological and the comedy is HILARIOUS

One of the most convoluted plots i have ever seen. The development of the characters is crazy. I gets better then worse, and then better. So confusing.
It starts off as a comic manga but gets much more serious.

Yet there is some addicting factor that compells the reader to keep read the manga. Its just that everyone wants to see how this manga ends.

*spoilers within*

I love this series from the beginning and it quickly became one of my favorite manga, characters are well developed and it mixes some of the society's issues with comedy, but after a while, it became repetitive and the plot had became pretty random just for the sake of comedy.

I've seen all 40 chapters (40 being the last chapter), during the climax of the story, different characters had different serious issues built up and it had developed to the point where they've reached a dead end, however those problems simply diminished and they just went back to square one (might be what we should expect from a hikki).

Of course, there shouldn't really be much to expect from a social withdrawal, so the ending were pretty predictable, the whole process and characters developement were the gems of this manga, there just wasn't that big of a conclusion towards the end to me because everything just sort of "happened".

I liked the original novel a bit more and the ending scenario (similiar to that of the anime) were much more epic and conclusive to me, however I enjoy this manga and it was one of the most depressive story I've read since evangelion.

As I started this manga I thought it would be another weird one like Fooly Cooly, but worse. However it somehow deals with a lot of psychological issues, in a comedy setting. The artwork is pretty random as it can go from great to outrageous by the turn of a page. It remains funny and interesting through-out but the romance element didn't make sense half the time, because just like the male protagonist, I couldn't even understand the way the girl thinks or her strange thought patterns. ^_^

Great character development. First and foremost, I'd like to point that out. This story is very character based, and you really have a feel for Satou and Misaki, as well as Yamazaki. Their emotions and relationships really drive the Pyschological and Drama aspects of this work. The artwork was very well done as well. Everything was drawn just great. No flaws whatsoever, really.
The complete story itself is quite thought provoking and it really does make you think about what it is trying to explain. All the concepts that it touches upon do follow up with many real ideas that make you think.
The one thing I felt was not done to my liking was the ending; it seemed abrupt and inconclusive. It was still enjoyable, but it could have been a lot better.

It was nice and interesting in the beginning, but it went downhill at the end, very fast. I read mostly because I was interested in the whole hikikomori thing, but after a while it got boring, and I couldn't stop thinking : What the fuck is wrong with this people ? Seriously maybe I don't know enough about Japanes culture but all characters in this manga are nut jobs and would need professional help.
