So the """NEET""" backstory was basically a red herring to drag in all you autists to watch this shit show, right?

The creators of this kinda made him a fully functioning part of society and then had him stay at home and called him a NEET. Then they gave him several mental disabilities when he went to the other world...

When was it ever stated that he was a NEET? In the very first episode he was carrying bags of shopping, which showed he left the house and did his own shopping instead of having mummy do it for him. The shopping contained apples and other fruits, not a NEET diet at all. And he wears a tracksuit, which indicates exercise. He is not a NEET and they never pretended he was

As a NEET I can explain these three things

Those terms are nothing alike.
Using the term 'NEET' to describe a man not in employment, education or training is literally the one and only way to use the word, regardless of whether he browses 4chan all day and pisses in a bottle, or if he fucks 3dpd models every night.

Stop your ridicilous damage control.

From what I recall the term was first used by the British to classify young people in particular, the kind who not being in education, training, or employment would make them ner-do-wells, I don't think they used the NEET classification for retirees and pensioners, or just anyone who fit the acronym.

Yeah, the fact that he was not only stronger than but also a better fighter than those street thugs felt like a pile of shit to me.

I mean, I know they're just street rats and shit but given that fact they should have been in a fair few street fights growing up and if he's a NEET shut in he should have been in a grand total of 0 fights.

Frankly they should have beaten that tar out of him. What kind of NEET can handle three muggers in a fight all at once?

He did
Rem and Ram trusted him in the first loop
His relationship building with Beako is after the loops

Don't pretend loops were not advantageous for him in that.

>>144786568

I'm a very introverted person, but in public I act completely different from the way I am.
I also pretend to be more friendly than I am.
And I'm real. So, Subaru is realistic to me. I see in him myself under many points of view.

Indeed it's not easy at all. But life forces you to be like that anon. When you meet people also if you don't want to meet them, and so on. Wearing a mask is very common and it can't helped when you are not extroverted but you are forced in social situations.

This thread is full of retards. What the fuck is the point of making him a NEET if it doesn't reflect a single thing about his personality? If he's outgoing, sociable, and gets along easily with women/strangers, his background should support that. Of course real people can be extroverted NEETs who get pussy 24/7, but he's a fictional character, and the trait should only exist to explain and support his behaviour. As is, it's just completely extraneous information that has nothing to do with Subaru as a person, or his lifestyle.

It's either a trick to get hikkis watching, or it's just bad writing. It's a mediocre series in general so probably the latter, it's full of cliche bait characters so why wouldn't the MC be one too?

Yeah, I agree. Sadly this kind of people are not very common.

These days, girls are superficial as hell. If a pretty good looking guy like him acted that cool in front of your average girl, she would be already between his arms.
It's nice to have a female protagonist like Emilia, who isn't able to take him seriously.

Autistic girls with so much mental issues they go insane when confronted with their past and kill everyone in Arc 5?
>>
His whole neet phase and being absent from school are things that happened recently. Arc 4 goes in debt into his past and explains why he acts like a goddamn autist. Anime will only cover all of arc 4 though.

He is good at athletics and not even dumb in any way, but daddy issues and inferiority complex makes him fuck up.

You meant arc 3.
Yeah such a pity we won't get Subaru's past, at least some people would shut up. He was never always a hikikomori, he has been a succesfull guy until some things happened.

I can do all of those things and I'm a NEET. You are just a faggot, OP.

He hasn't been always a hikikomori. My English sucks

Never change /a/

Subaru's background, posted by an anon a few days ago:
>His dad was an extremely well-liked/influential figure in the community, and Subaru was naturally good at athletics, schoolwork, making friends etc when he was young, which prompted comparisons to his father and inflated his ego. But since he was coasting off talent, he eventually started falling behind. This panicked him because he was becoming less like his (perfect) dad, and he scrambled to find a way to sustain his resemblance.
Subaru's dad is eccentric as fuck in his speech and behaviour, he even does the memeboy pose. Subaru focused on imitating this aspect of his father and progressively did crazier and crazier shit so that he'd stand out as the kid who did cool, exciting stuff nobody else did. His friends couldn't keep up with it and he soon lost them all. When he realised this, he instantly dropped the persona and proceeded through middle school by quietly keeping to himself, ashamed at how he'd failed to match up to his dad.
His high school was somewhat out of town, in an area where his dad's name didn't have any weight. He decided to take the opportunity to make news friends and start over, but instantly flubbed it due to social retardation. He withdrew from his peers out of mortification and started fearing the idea of people having expectations of him, including his family. Eventually he started truanting and it snowballed into hikki.
He resents himself for being inferior to his dad and wants to be disowned, so that he doesn't have to deal with the expectation of being like his father, or sullying his father's presence for being such a disappointment. Unfortunately, his parents are supportive. Also, during all this, he kept up his genki genki act at home. Then he gets isekai'd.

>narcissistic
>delusional
>egocentric
It's actually interesting to think of Subaru as a critique of the show's audience. It doesn't portray hikkikomore as socially inept, but it's still heavily critical.
>>
>>144790085

I'd really love to read his background. The fact he became a hikki doesn't mean he was always a loser. On the contrary, he was brilliant. Such a pity his father complex ruined his development during a very delicate age.
But all his potential as a person is still in him.
>>
>>144790085
Is all this revealed in the LN at some point?
