Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a new blog! Now I know that in my description I said that I would be posting at least once a day. Its just that I’ve been really busy and I think I might need to make that once every ‘2’ days. Sorry guys. So without further a due let us begin the review of “Welcome to the NHK”!
This black-comedy, romance was written by Tatsuhiko Takimoto and illustrated by Kenji Oiwa. It began in 2004 and ran till 2007.
No of episodes : 24
- Sato Tatsuhiro
- Misaki Nakahara
- Kaoru Yamazaki
The story revolves around 22 year old Sato Tatsuhiro, a university drop-out who suffers from social anxiety a.k.a. ‘hikikimori‘. He ultimately leads to the conclusion that this is a conspiracy led by the people of N.H.K.(Nihon Hikikomori Kyōkai). One normal day he hears a knock at his door. This is where his life changes where he meets, Misaki Nakahara. An 18 year old, mysterious high school girl who is determined to free Sato from his hikikomori life. Soon he also meets his neighbor who just so happens to be his old high school friend, Kaoru Yamazaki. Sato wants to prove that he isn’t hikikomori to escape all the conspiracies and decides to make a game with his friend Yamazaki. His life then follows a series of adventures of meeting new friends, learning new things and doing adventurous stuff that a normal hikikomori can’t do. The story continues…..
The most odd story you will ever come across? Yes. Is it worth it? Definitely! This anime has the most bizarre story line but the main character is very fascinating. The show has its ups and downs. I legit cried during 1-2 scene. It is great entertainment and I honestly wouldn’t mind watching this anime 4-5 times if I had to! It gives some great insights to lifr and teaches you that unless you do hard work nothing good can come out of life. Animation is pretty good considering it was made in 2004 Super fun to watch and funny, a little bit of nudity(so warning!) but overall a really good and must watch anime.
I would give this anime a 4/5 stars.
