As the offbeat comedy Welcome to the NHK continues, 22-year-old Tatsuhiro Sato tries to escape from his isolation, and the filmmakers face the challenge of humanizing this inert character. Misaki goads Sato into leaving his grubby apartment, something he's done only to buy basic necessities for four years. He visits the high-tech college his next-door neighbor Yamazaki attends, and surprises the writing teacher with his talent. But Sato's neuroses convince him every compliment is really a disguised insult from the amorphous conspirators ranged against him. He flees the school. A visit from Sato's mother pushes him to greater honesty, and reveals unexpected vulnerabilities in Misaki. Although it's often outrageously funny, Welcome to the NHK deals with a very real problem: the number of hikikomori--young people who withdraw from society--is rising in Japan, and the syndrome has begun to appear in other countries. (Rated TV MA, suitable for ages 15 and older: minor violence, profanity, risqué & toilet humor, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

Meet Satou Tatsuhiro, a 22 year-old hermit who thinks that a secret organization known as the N.H.K. is out to fill the world with reclusive adolescents like himself, also known as hikikomori. Now they’ve upped the ante by using media to turn unsuspecting viewers into otaku, and Satou becomes determined to stop the N.H.K. There’s only one problem-he’s too frightened to even go outdoors!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Manic Love Story? December 8, 2012
By KevinB
22 year old Satou is a NEET, and a hikkikomori. He never leaves the house. He just sits around drinking beer, smoking, and watching TV. On top of all this he is also delusional. He convinces himself that a group called the NHK (Nihon Hikkikomori Kyoukai) is out to get him and turn the entire country into NEETs. One day a pretty high school girl named Misaki visits him and offers to give him counseling to cure his hikkikomori condition. The 2 become closer and begin to rely on each other. As their relationship strengthens Satou is able to venture out and do things on his own. Lot's of drama and comedy ensue.

This anime is completely different from anything I've ever seen. It dark and methodical vibe are complemented by the main characters hilarious paranoia and perverted imagination. The production is top notch. Animation and music are all very good. It also stars 2 of my favorite voice actors, Chris Patton and Luci Christian. Given Satou's perverted imagination, this anime isn't for young viewers. But if you're older and want to laugh a lot and want to see a interesting romantic comedy then this anime will probably make you very happy.
