Welcome to the N.H.K.
Sato's life – or what's left of it – is a paranoid mess of conspiracy theories and social anxieties. He's terrified of the outside world; his apartment is overflowing with the remnants of cheap take-out food; and his retinas have been permanently scarred by a steady diet of internet porn. But maybe it's not all his fault. After all, the nefarious N.H.K. is out there, and they’re determined to turn society's fringe-dwellers into a brainwashed lot of jobless, hopeless, futureless recluses. Enter Misaki – a mysterious girl-next-door type who is Sato's last chance to beat-down his inner demons and venture out into the light of day. She's ready to help him overcome his crippling phobias, but Sato would rather cower in his existential foxhole and pretend to work on the demo for his virtual sex game. He’s afraid to face the world. She's strangely desperate to fix a total stranger. Maybe together they can be normal.

""Welcome to the NHK" makes me feel like an insomniac for how slept on it seems. It's probably one my favorite dark comedy anime. I kinda feel like Seinfeld in that it's kinda about nothing. I'd probably fill the comment just talking this dark comedy of slice of life but I think most are better of experiencing this life for 24 eps. Instead reading about the story let it take you for a ride. I promise its good time friends."
