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.

Story: The story is...weird, but true. All of us here (I believe) know the feeling of just sitting in front of the computer all day long, be it playing MMORPG or watching anime. Some of us do it because we enjoy it (from this idea came Genshiken). Some of us do it to escape the world and from this idea came NHK.

Characters: Yes they are overdone, but that is the point of them. From the over otaku to the angel to the hikikomori. Yet behind these overdone masks there are times when we could see their underlying self. A person who is simply afraid of what other people think of him (god knows I've been in that position a lot). A wise yet twisted person, who seeks to escape, but knew the truth (been there too). A person who rescues others, because they feel that they need to, and actually just wanted to be love (What the heck, I've went trough all of this. Go figures). I'll say excellent character design

Art: Not the best, but good enough so I have nothing to complain about, really...

Favorite moment: When Misaki did Freud's psycho analysis (poor girl). That was Hilarious. -AND- "However depressing or painful... we would still return to this idiotic life."

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.

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.
