Editorial Reviews

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!

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.

Product review:
I would not recommend buying this if you already own their regular DVDset or the complete boxset. This is not worth spending money just for the sake of collection. The Front and Back of the collectible box has advertisement of some other anime. FUNimation's DTB box release was way better. Though I gave this product a 2/5 STAR, the anime itself gets a 5/5 STAR.

Anime Review:

Animation/BGM:
Pretty decent. Opening/Ending songs are quite catchy.

Story (No SPOILERS):
The story is centered around a 22 year old male, who is suffering from extreme Social anxiety disorder (SAD). The story explores the human psyche and how it is affected by our daily life. Issues such as social hypocrisy, conspiracy theory, social expectation are also highlighted in this anime.

I first become aware of this title through reading the novel of the same name. I bought NHK #2 with the artbox , and it is relivaly sturdy. Onto NHK #2, while there some funny moments, the series as a whole pretty dark. I like how the animation is used to highlight the main carther's emotional state.

Was shipped in great condition and with a lot of security on it for protection of the box. Arrived in a very quick time and was not disappointed. Would buy from again

While the characters and story have yet to win me over, the pace at which they are moving forward is hard to ignore. While the comedy rarely made me laugh out loud, I did get enough chuckles from the writing to be interested in exploring more. I'm not enthusiastic about this series but so far it hasn't shown any reason not to move forward with it. This is really coming across as a series that won't be for everyone though and casual anime fans will probably get lost in all the cultural references. Make this one a rental.
