A quick summary and a review score to end your review.
Show - Welcome to the NHK (Anime)
* I've not watched this in a long time, but it's one of my favourites so I'll try my best.
The main character is about as week as they come. He's a loser. He's scared out the outside, so spends most of his time, alone in his one room apartment.He's not only scared of the outside, he's convinced that it's a conspiracy, by the evil NHK to keep him indoors. If he could break past it's control he could be the hero he was destined to be. His strength is that deep down he still has some kindness in him. Over the course of the show his kindness as well as alll other aspects about him grow.
What makes this story stand out is the fact it's a story of the biggest loser imaginable, learning why even he has a reason to live.
I fell in love in the first episode. The animation, the comedy. The main character(s). It all blended together into something I loved.
It changed me, because I identified with the main character. I was never that bad, but saw part's of myself in him/. Through watching I learned that even the people we regard as doing great, struggle just as much with their mental demons. Smart people fail.And being kind isn't always enough.
Similar anime to golden boy, yet their both very unique. I don't think I've came across anything similar to this.
The way he cares for others makes me smile. He doesn't have much to give, but what he does he gives it his all..
Favourite Quote - “People who neglect to make efforts or who don’t take any actions at all are always the ones who dream that someday they will suddenly become wildly successful.” - Misaki
I'm sure there must have been filler episodes, but I honestly can't remember. I've somehow managed to forget all that I disliked to only be left with everything I loved about the show.
Sato a loser, who is scared of leaving his house is met by Misaki. She trains him to become a better person. During that journey Sato meet's up with an old friend. Creates a video game. Comes to the brink of ending his life. Returns to college and more. This is a story about growth, about becoming a better person. And that's why I love it. A solid 5/5
