I like it. Its funny. Wasn't expecting it in the beginning though, I thought it was going to be another soft\slow music because of the beginning part.

I saw this in wiki and eager to watch for a long time.dan .. it's like a bomb .Just came out and blew up in animesuki. look at all those posts.I watched it.Honestly I saw a part of me in Satou.I hate to think in this way but I can't help it.Being hikki is not that you want to be,it is just the situation drove you to be.yeah... GONZO rocks to the core this time.

I'm inclined to believe there is some truth to that statement. If you watch a lot of anime you're being constantly shown ideal versions of people in ideal situations. With enough of that, real life people will start to look drab, boring, flawed, and horrible in comparison. Combine that with other pressures (such as getting bullied in school or having too much acamdemic pressure) and it's not surprising that some people decide to take the road to being a hikikomori.

I loved it, better then the OP in my opinion. Though I prefer the animation of the opening (minus naked Misaki and Kashiwa-sempai ).

The episode was actually better then I thought it would be. For the most part the animation was very good. Fluid movement and drab colors really added to a few of the moments. The first scene with Misaki holding the umbrella in the snow was amazing. Though the animators seem to like severely shortening Satou's forearm. It gets extremely small and loses a ton of detail in a few scenes. The character designs are okay for the most part. Satou is a pretty good transition and so is Misaki. Though I think Misaki's face is a little bit too long. Kashiwa-sempai I think actually looks better in the anime.

As for the things they cut... bleh. The suicide concoction was my favorite part of the first chapter and was extremely funny. And the whole scene with Satou talking with furniture must not have made sense to the anime only watchers because
Spoiler:

All in all, a decent first episode. I'll continue watching it through the end just to see how they adapt it.

First episode was very good. Main character is... you know, an odd guy. XD

I think this is going to be as great show. It has a very interesting theme(hikikomori problems, and I suppose they will show how the mais character will become again a normal person). And is a really funny show.

I liked the OP song, but I think Ed song is way better.

This series has potential.

As for myself, I liked the opening and ending themes. I DO love ROCK!

The only downside is that the fansubbers didn't do the show justice. They have off timings and the subs are not really presented well AT ALL. That's what you get from MKV format >_> But maybe it's just me being biased an all (I HATE MKV!).

The story in itself is really interesting. The apparent idiocies and of course the arrows shot at those who watched the anime is all so amusing. Besides those, the WTF factor as per described is really brilliantly presented.

Although, I've to say that the animators didn't give the female protagonist the "angel-like" look she had in the manga. Well, this also might be a case of me being over-expectant, but oh well - I enjoyed it.

I dislike the OP. The animation's interesting, and the music's not horrible, but it's kind of boring and doesn't really fit the show at all. It's not emphasizing the depressing or the crazy, which are pretty much the main themes of the show. I guess it's emphasizing the feeling of alienation through the faceless people running by, but it's too upbeat to really capture that. The ED on the other hand is perfect.

I'm wondering who that purple guy is though. Is he the mascot for the NHK TV station or something? Or a fake mascot for the anime? Or just nothing in particular?

Spoiler for comparison to manga:


My favorite show of the season so far.

Just saw the first episode, and i can totaly relate to this shit(except this beeing a worst case scenario).. Voices, paranoia, depresed, lack of sleep and dropping out of school halfway trough the year. I still have problems, but it's only gotten better since i started going to school again, and stopped putting all my time into computer games and such.

After seeing this show, I realised something.. It's time to get a part time job (atleast in some not to distant future :S)

You hear about shit like this all the time, like people having gambling addictions loosing their marriage, jobs and houses.

Dont think it's that uncommon tbh.

I think the anime is ok, but i still like the manga better. Maybe episode 2 will show improvement, i dont know. But on the other hand anime companies allways try to make episode one very good because depending on ep1 people will decide to continue watching it.

I have no idea about NHK ni Youkoso at first, but when I watched it I was amused about the premise. Though some friends are telling me just to read the manga.

The art isn't so bad (I was expecting worse since most of the reviews thought it was a disappointment), and the girl's drawing is pretty cute if I say so myself

Unless you watched it in VLC it should have looked fine... it certainly did when I made it. Anyway, I'm making a hardsub version now. You'll have to keep seeding it yourself, though, I don't have enough upload bandwidth for more than one torrent at a time.

I read the NHK manga eons ago, but for some reason my interest in it waned, and I stopped following it. My original interest in NHK mainly lies in its exhibition of an unsound mind, Satou's psychological delusions and behaviours. I never thought NHK was that disturbing, just curious enough to raise an eyebrow. But then again, I have to remind myself that I also possess a slightly tainted mind. The first episode captured well of Satou's abnormal mentality. But even with my fuzzy recollection, I felt the manga was a bit more hardcore than the anime, which is congruent with what more faithful manga readers' comparisons above. While casually strumming my Washburn, I inadvertently figured out the chords to the song that was playing when Satou decided to out to get a job. In the key of C Major (or A Minor), the fundamental chord progression is: Dm-Fmaj7-C. Quite simple actually. If strummed with open chords, I think the high E string is muted with all three chords. Anyways, my disposition for this beginning episode is, overall, good. With respect to this hikikomori phenomenon, I eagerly await to take Psychology 300A&B - Behaviour Disorders, where I can then truly dissect people like Satou, and consequently, of myself.

Haha, I'm a fourth year Psychology Major and I don't think you should place much hope of "dissecting" ill people from just reading texts and such. I'm also not sure whether that kind of intention is any good in the first place.. But studying abnormal psychology does seriously give you alot of sympathy for them and, if you really take in the course and text, understand the importance of the biological contribution to such disorders.

My vote on the NHK anime awaits on its future episodes. I don't really like Gonzo, but in some ways they give a nice shape to this anime and fit well with its more psychedelic themes. I'm still relatively unimpressed by this episode.. we'll see.

Maybe the word "dissect" was too aggressive. Perhaps "understand" would be a better word. To gain some light on why such behaviour disorders exist, how it occurs, symptoms and effects, environmental and/or like you said, biological factors that affect it...etc. Queries akin to those. I've always wanted to know a bit more about things regarding this aspect of psychology.

I downloaded the subtitles and used them with a raw. Everything looked just fine with Media Player Classic. Thank you very much.
