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!

beginning better, anime also better

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.

hilarious breakdown

this manga is about some of the fallen of the society, the losers and weak, the depressive and the manics. it manage to make such an enjoyable and hilarious manga out of such a heavy topic, thus anyone may be able to read this without lying down on bed, crying. the chapters take mostly this formula = the first 90% is wacky hijinks and the protagonist doing insane stuff, the last 10% is when all the comedic bafoonery get to a peak, and he and us crashed down to the reality, or the reality that he accept where he is a worthless human being.

this is truly a great manga for anyone who love interesting characters.

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.

Like I did. I was wondering how a manga with that kind of synopsis could be a masterpiece. So I read the whole thing, and it is not worth your time.

The few funny moments didn't do it for me... the characters and development were agitating.

The first 6 volumes where pretty good, Then it kinda just fell off. I wish it would of been more of him getting cured and really falling in love with the girl. The last 2 volumes felt rushed and loose.

8/10 even with crappy ending.

I could give it 10 because I really loved it but... I don't feel like it. maybe it's the same as a teacher who can't help but find weaknesses in a test because they don't wanna give the best rate but really, it could have been even better. the ending could be more grand, I liked how it ended, no prob, but it felt like it was weak, it's there "just cause". some part could have been more developed. there were let downs here and there. but frankly speaking, this manga was over the average. it alternated between sad and funny sad-fun swiftly, you cuold just empathise with the protagonnists. probably the sadest manga after Saikano, but instead of giving a slow rythm that never allows you to let go, it had a changing rythm. it oscillated, making you feel just how connected every people were.
enough blabbering, read it, you won't be able to stop.

1. The way Sato is. I mean I've felt like I don't wanna do anything. (I think I spent a whole year without doing anything at all ._. just on the pc, eating, drinking, being with myself, not with my "friends" and stuff...So I'm feeling something while readin' it. =)

Funny or depressing?

That was really good, but I'm not sure how I feel about the shift in tone. The first 3-4 volumes were consistently hilarious. It was going to be the first manga for me to give a 10 to for comedy value - but as it went, it became more and more serious. Depressing, even. There's no change in the subject matter, just how it's presented. I think I would have preferred it to stay as it was - normally I'm all for misery, but in this case not so much.
