Welcome to the NHK is a hilarious romp through the mind of someone with MASSIVE social anxiety, referred to with the term Hikikomori. The main character, Satou, suffers from the delusion that he is being forced to be a hikikomori by a conspiracy called the N.H.K. Add to this a girl who is intent on curing his delusions, and you have a hilariously dark series.
Why I recommend it to writers: First off, play a drinking game using the first episode. Every single time “Conspiracy” is said, take a shot. Now enjoy your trip to the hospital. Secondly, the characterization in this series is amazing. It showcases a lovely relationship and the way that others can help a character to grow.
warnings: Alcohol poisoning if you take my advice.
