OP here. If you're all wondering where's your misaki at, i got bad news. She's not just gonna knock your door some day and help you out. But she's out there somewhere. You just gotta find her. You never will if you just kill yourself tho.

Just so you know, Welcome to the NHK has been discussed to death here, so don't be surprised if you don't get too many responses.

FUCK THAT, THIS ISN'T WHY I WATCH ANIME, EVERY OTHER SHOW CAN BE ABOUT THAT BUT NOT THIS ONE

Wake up earlier, eat healthier, clean your living space, exercise (not necessarily work out but stuff like walking, etc.) find a creative outlet, learn a new skill, practice your current skills, read a book, improve your vocabulary, practice your speech. Anything that will take away your time. Ease into a new way of living.

When you're feeling comfortable with that, take on bigger challenges. Find people with common interests (not anonymous, someone you can actually get to know, near where you live), do volunteer work or a part-time job. You'll definitely meet some people you can get properly acquainted with.

Point is, try to be a productive member of society and more importantly, make yourself feel like you're productive. It will make you feel better and generally more pleasant.

We've all been/are there, anon. It's hard to get through by yourself. Most of the time all we need is a good heart-to-heart with someone we love.

Though many of us have no loved ones, someone will eventually show up as long as you keep fighting. It will sometimes feel pointless and unrewarding but it's the way it works. It may take a long time, or it might only feel like a long time. If you are on the brink of escaping, if nothing else can keep you going, just think about how it would be if you found that one person you can rely on. How different things would be then. That will keep you fighting, it did for me.

What always helped for me was to either really exhaust myself, to a level where I'm spilling sweat everywhere, then take a shower and then focus on something that's indulging and relaxing (but also new and informative!) or something that's, again, productive and informative but not too strenous on the brain or body. Something that makes your brain absorb new information.

The other way is just to take a nap. Sleep it away. You'll wake up either feeling a bit more motivated or feeling just as shitty or more as before.

If those aren't effective, try saving up money.
Want something you can't afford at the moment? Save up for it. Ration your supplies. It might sound a bit extreme but it shouldn't be too overboard. Try to cut down those bill prices.
Saving up gives you a feeling of purpose to what you're doing. When you finally save up enough, you might even have enough determination to keep on going (and of course continue rationing as well). Save up for something even bigger. That feeling of anticipation and soon-to-be indulgement will leave you hanging sometimes, but, again, it will make you feel like you have something to look forward to and make things a bit less painful.

It's thankfully faded into the background today, but, back in 2006-7, NHK was responsible for a lot of idiots on 4chan thinking that being a hikki was "cool," or that a hikki and a NEET were the same thing, or that you could be a hikki if you went to uni, worked at a part-time job, and did weeb things on the weekend at your house.

Although I realize that a lot of this is just the ignorance and stupidity of entry-level Japanese cartoon enthusiasts, it was still rather annoying.

People underestimate the power of working out. It helps with stress, depression, mood, etc. This isn't just about being more self-confident, your body at a chemical level will release endorphin after about 20 mins of exercise. In a nutshell Endorphin is a lot like morphine, it will make you feel better and lower pain sensitivity.

Anyways, I know it seems like an insurmountable task but you have to start somewhere. My advice, start small. Do some daily stretching, start cleaning up after yourself, Try exposing yourself to something new (break your routine/cocoon). I also recommend the book called "yoga sutras of pantajali" (its short), or any other good philosophy book

I've been slowly trying to climb out for the past 2 years and I can say I am seeing progress, I'm doing things now that I thought where impossible for me last year.

How do you know they will leave you? If they're someone you don't get along with well, then they'll leave, otherwise why would they? And for me, I had no idea where I would meet peoples off the net so I just started posting on a smaller forum and met someone else who browses /a/ also with no friends trying to find people to talk to, we best friends now after a couple years. Just think of places you'd go if you were really really desperate to meet people and maybe someone similar to you will also be really really desperate and looking in the same place. It does take time and shit though, but it's worth it long-run, at least it's practice socializing without the comfort of anonymity (if you've got anxiety problems like me this is a big one).

Pretty good, but the anime makes Misaki seem more angelic and perfect than the manga where her manipulation and general selfishness is much more prominent.
However, I don't like the blogposting that it inspires in threads like these. I'm a hikki wizard but that is not something to talk about on /a/

Nope your partner in is only perfect until you get to know him/her then you realize is just as shifty as you if not worst and by the time you realize you already have kids that cant wait to get the fuck away from you, or even worst they turn into NEETs too. And you have to chose to either destroy your failure of marriage with a divorce (hurting your kids in the process) or be miserable for the rest of your life.

Do happy married for couples exist? Of course they do but they a minority because those couples are born from the love between two kind, decent human beings not two anons.

Okay, stop with the blogshit for a second.

Not him, but who cares about love?
I have depression and decided to read Oyasumi Punpun. It reminded me that I had dreams as a kid and was far happier then. Everything gets corrupted in our world, why would I care about love when it's corrupted?

I mean, maybe it's just me but even if I had some qt girl like Misaki show up and actually help me. I would still be left unsatisfied with a feeling of loss that would eat away at me. I have wasted my life until now, I can never get that back and I would always be left feeling "this isnt right, even if it's good think of how much better it could have been if I tried harder and didnt waste most of my current life".

All love would do would make me regret my actions even more by tempting me but not satisfying me due to my own idea of how much better things would be if I didnt take certain paths.

You know the funny thing? I actually beleive in God and I'm kinda hoping after death he will give me an option to go the atheist route and just vanish. I mean even if you got to an amazing afterlife, wouldnt you still be troubled by your experience here?
Alas I cant go thorugh with suicide becuase I would feel guilt due to how it would hurt family/

It lost itself on the way there
It ended up abruptly - even though the ending was good, I guess, but there was no builup whatsoever. Did they interrupt the series?

Also the friend didn't end up with the girl he wanted which seemed really out of place since that was the whole plot of that character

No I'm not.
Look lets say you are really into sports and you start paying football at age 12 onwards. You go far and it's great.
Now think of how much better it would bave been if you started when you were 6 or something.

TIme is something you cant get back. It's gone, wasted. For maximum results you would need to devote yourself to something. If you dont have much to show on here, and are old enough to post. You could say that around 18 years of your life (at least) have been wasted. I could have done so much more, and thats wahat eats away at me inside.

Fuck it, I'm going to quit anime, quit vidya and block this site for a year or so. I have been a neet 5 years, and if I dont find a way out soon I will lose my mind.

That's where we disagree. Unless you had seen the future, you'd most likely be the same person making the same choices.
It's good that you're trying to change for the better now but don't be hard on yourself. Your choices back then were mostly determined by factors outside your control.

http://people.uncw.edu/kozloffm/glubb.pdf

although Rome ruled the world, women
ruled Rome. In the tenth century, a similar
tendency was observable in the Arab Empire,
the women demanding admission to the
professions hitherto monopolised by men.
‘What,’ wrote the contemporary historian,
Ibn Bessam, ‘have the professions of clerk,
tax-collector or preacher to do with women?
These occupations have always been limited
to men alone.’ Many women practised law,
while others obtained posts as university
professors. There was an agitation for the
appointment of female judges, which,
however, does not appear to have succeeded.
Soon after this period, government and
public order collapsed, and foreign invaders
overran the country. The resulting increase
in confusion and violence made it unsafe for
women to move unescorted in the streets,
with the result that this feminist movement
collapsed.

He had sex with Hitomi and he ended up with Misaki at least in some weird ass manner they had bonded over.

Did we read the novel and watch the show and possibly cross reference something by mistake? Maybe I did.

Began watching it when I was a NEET, but I got a job right after I watched the offline meeting, so I stopped watching it because I stopped feeling so fucking terrible.
>>
>>136001903
I also didn't like that arc, but I think it's pretty important.

The whole point of the novel/anime is to show how modern Japanese society can make you like MC, and how different people cop with it (phony pyramid schemes, religious sects, videogame or anime addiction, etc.).

It also hits harder outside of Japan, since pyramid bullshit is actually pretty common outside of Japan, unlike some of the other stuff.
>>
>>136005877
Ah fuck, it's not too late I hope. This excessive white guilt/political correctness feels like something leading towards female dominated society.
That being said, the recent feminist movement feels like it's dying so thank fuck for that.

I tried watching it, because people were like "this is Way Too Close To Home: From Animation", but then I watched it and I was jealous of Satou. Yeah, he was a Hikki, but he had two hot girls pretty much fall into his lap, he's actually pretty attractive, and he lost his virginity at a socially acceptable age to the prettiest girl in school.

I couldn't believe it. This guy is supposed to be the absolute bottom of the barrel and he's still better than me.
>>
>>136004728
The key is to try to not focus on the past. Which is of course impossible to do completely, but I've managed to go from dwelling incessantly on minute details of my highschool behavior to only thinking about them a few times day. You may have wasted life till now but the longer you continue to sit the more you'll think, "christ, why didn't I do something earlier?" later on.

The past already happened, focusing on that is just going to ruin your future and make the past repeat itself. Memory is there not for dwelling on your past mistakes but for learning from them and improving your behavior for the future to live a better life.

It sounds like he didn't get the moral of the story.

""Let's look forward in life"? Are you an idiot?! We have dreams, so we're
okay? We don't have any kind of dreams!


I wondered if I would have to go on living every day, whispering to
myself, I can't take it anymore.
Is that okay? What do you think?
I worried back and forth about this for a little bit; in the end, though,
I just signed the contract. "

>But unless you committed a crime and are posting from your prison cell right now. You still have your freedom and an uncertain future. So instead of just feeling pity for yourself try to change your life. It's probably not too late.
I no longer see the friends I grew up with, the girl I had a crush on since I was a kid (who is now probably a single mom like someone from my class I saw last year) and I probably cant take up certain hobbies due to age (I could have done gymnastics as a kid, I saw all the girls and felt like I would be made fun of so I didnt do it. I could have been fit as fuck, and had great fun).

Yes you have freedom. But oppertunities are now diminshed.

>>136006366
I wish I could forget my life until now anon, I really wish I could.
I knoiw what you mean, but again it's hard to see some stupid decision I made that could have taken me on a happier path (I highly doubt growing up is heralded by thoughts of suicide), that path is now gone. While I cant change that, I do still hate myself for the choices that put me where I am. I dont know how to handle regret.

In no way did Misaki fix Satou. He alone put forth the steps to fix himself.

welll she was kind of his motivation to start changing in the beginning. Then it all reverted back and Sato decided to change on his own. Interpret that how you want to but I think the overall message was that only you can ultimately fix your shit while reaching out to others for help will also help you

Well the point of the ending os that there is no happy ending for outcasts and "broken" people.
The best they can get is to live.

In the anime Sato get a job (working on the roads), in the novel I think he goes back to college with Misaki, and in the manga (who has a much more bittersweet ending) he goes back to his parents home and try to become a creator.

I haven't read the novel and the manga, just the final chapters and the last pages.

I watched it in college and found myself really relating to the characters, especially Satou, so much so that I started believing it was a story about my own life.

At first the show made me want to give up and live as a NEET, so I slipped into depression (worse than usual) and anxiety, failing some of my major classes for about 2 years.

It later served as a source of comfort and motivation that everything will be okay.

I still watch it every year or so to just ground myself.

The anime is way different in tone. Remember when he took pictures outside the school? In the anime it was comedic, in the novel it's pathetica and pitiful, you can see he's having a mental breakdown. The Anime did te eding beter stating being a hiki was itself a luxery, because it required support. But aside from that the anime is better.
Oh and I dont remember the start of the anime having him talk about blowing up the NHK because he was delusional.
