The plot mostly concerns the daily struggles of Satou, a 22 year old Hikikomori(jobless shut in) who has been in isolation so long he has become quite insane. The main theme of the manga is conspiracies, with Satou convincing himself that he is the victim of a global conspiracy designed to make sure he does not leave his apartment or live his life.

Satou is lovably deranged. This entire series of manga is just a darkly comedic look at the lives of several people with some serious issues. I don't think that by the end of the manga I could name to you even one character who is not borderline insane. At times I went through feelings of disgust, pity and hilarity, or a curious mixture of all three, all in the space of several panels. What makes this manga so good is that I found myself empathising with these seriously disturbed individuals, and that my friends is the mark of a solid plot with excellent characterisation. ( )

Vielversprechender Anfang einer Serie.
Sehr zu empfehlen für Liebhaber der Satire, vorausgesetzt man kann etwas mit dem Genre Anime und Manga anfangen. ( )
