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!

Well, I couldn't think of a good Subject for this comment and since the series had that 'Welcome' on its title, I thought of giving it a reply or something.

Hmmm, what can I say, its not like the other Shounen mangas that I have read since when it often dwels with the psychological well being of characters, I often associate it with Seinen mangas.

The reality is close as humor gets thrown in a varity of angles but, its obviously not for everyone to like. It may seem difficult to others or irrational in fact. 'Normal' people would be doing such things in the first place yet, like all characters portrayed in the series, they all have flaws that they had to deal with. Its amazing to suggest that even with the main protagonist's own situation, he ends up helping those around him.

If you can't appreciate this manga, try reading it again sometime..

Read all the chapters in one sitting. I'm not into their erogame phase but it's important in a sense of how they are trying to cover up what's really happening in their lives. Some comments say it's boring as shit and they don't understand it, but weird enough I totally get it.

One thing though, don't read this when you're feeling down yourself. It's not a good read to try to find something to vent off while thinking you can relate to it. It will seriously bring you down lol. I like the end, but it's too good. I was hoping for something more dramatic.

I don't think I can properly comment on this manga. So I'll just say it was the most...fulfilling thing I have ever read.


In my entire life.

More fulfilling then any other written piece of work, including books.

Strange, isn't it?

Anyways, I don't recommend this as a read for everyone. It's a manga that's...complex. It almost seems to mold itself into whatever the reader wants it to be. I guess I simply enjoyed what I ended up reading.

tazman0208's comments are something you have to consider while reading this manga, the ending does end in a very abrupt fashion and it may disappoint a few readers. there is a point to this story that gives it its charm. but the meaning behind this story is also something that is actually very commonly seen in a lot of abstract(artistic) movies that are made in asia. if you are familiar with artistic films, you would know what i am talking about*.

Nothing too deep or hard to understand as long as you are of the right age and read it to the end. The story isnt a rubix cube it just may take a bit of time to sink in. id give it an 8

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.

One of those really unique mangas out there. For those who grasp the true meaning behind this story and the authors intentions you will find that this is truly worth the time to read. Some people where critisizing how the characters didn't make sense and that they couldn't relate to them. To me I think that was the point, and if one really looks deep within ones self you will find similar sentiments and traits to one of the characters in this story.
Art is great, really enjoyed it. Also, loved the romance between the two leads but was hoping for a fatefull encounter towards the very end of the manga (even though I believe that it was Misaki that was ringing his door bell at the end).

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.

Fun story about a loser who goes through almost everything that could happen in a losers life. pyramis schemes, computer games you name it. I guess everyone in Satos position would like to have a Misaki in their lives.
