Welcome to the NHK

Show Summary

Welcome to the NHK - (NHK ni Youkoso!) - Psychological, Comedy, Drama, Slice of Life (May contain bad language, mild nudity and adult themes)... Satou Tatsuhiro is a twenty-two years old man, who is a NEET (Not in Employment, Education, or Training) and a hikikomori (meaning acute social withdrawal). He thinks everything around him is a conspiracy, including the reason why many people, including himself, become hikikomori. Satou comes up with this strange conspiracy theory which includes the Nihon Hikikomori Kyoukai (NHK), a secret organization with the intention to make the world filled with hikikomori. Satou wants to break free from the NHK's clutches, but cannot, since he finds it too frightening to go outdoors by himself; that is until he meets Misaki Nakahara, who selects Satou for this "project" to cure him of his hikikomori ways.

  • One of the best and most original anime for a long time.

    8.0
    When I first found this I thought I would hate it and I have never been more wrong! The story is about a young man named Satou-kun, a socially withdrawn loner, who rarely leaves his apartment. After a chance encounter with a very cute young girl, Misak, his life starts to change, although not necessarily for the better. He gets involved with old friends, suicide cults, and illegal pyramid schemes all while trying to change his isolationalist ways.



    The story is beautifully told with a brilliant blend of surrealism, metaphysical philosophy and existentalism. The charcaters are endearing and realistic without being sterotypical. The animation is also good and backed up by excellent voice talent.



    All in all if you are a fan of such shows as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, then this is definitely for you!moreless

    The anime is cool I guess. It's not bad, but you should be atleast 16 and older to watch it. I was sort of mad when Senpai and Sato didn't find a liking with each other, I thought it would of made it a bit more interesting.It's still cool and funny, but not the funniest anime I've watched so far. I do like the theme. The world is a conspiracy. Committing suicide, but not worth it because you still can change no matter who you are. Good things can still happen to you. The world is hard and it sucks but get over it, you still have to live your life it's not that bad.moreless
  • Anime for the Mature and Smart only-

    I first saw this series from a manga a friend had,although it had a couple of very explicit scenes,I was very curious since that same friend told me it was great- Hearing that from a very smart university student, I decided to check out the anime.



    We first come across a typical person who, because dropping off from college and have personal problems, made him into a hikikomori. Because this anime dealt with people who would stay in their houses, never leaving or going outside, still living with parents, watch anime,play games or just plain live alone and have problems with social interactivity, maybe thats why some anime fans don't watch it?



    I watched the whole series in only a couple of days, I absolutely love it. In every episode, Misaki tries to explore Satou-Kun's problems, using unorthodox solutions of course.I think the production team did a good thing by not using too much sexual explicit scenes and I liked how they used metaphoric scenes,most of the time is funny. Although this anime is hard to comprehend sometimes, it is definitely worth a shot.



    The animation is quite fluid, at times humorous and it's quite simple. It is a must watch for any smart person wanting to discover and see what is like to be a NEET/hikikomori which is a growing social problem in Japan and now in Northern America.moreless
