That's the show where the shut-in's best friend falls in love with a bee, right?

The protagonist isn't a shut-in (well unless you count the one part near very ending of the story).

Tatami Galaxy is a story structured on the idea of each episode re-doing a 2-year chunk of the protagonists college life -- exploring how/if he can get to the "good end".

Oh, I do remember it somewhat clearly. Unlike Groundhog's Day, it ultimately hinged on him just taking action without dragging things out.

It was pretty great, but at the same time it was probably too cerebral for most people, or at least the people who get really excited about things. Plus, it aired back with House of Five Leaves, as I recall, so it may be overshadowed by that.

I should watch it again; it is one of my favorites. The ending is perfect.

The Eccentric Family (Uchōten Kazoku) another anime by the same author is quite awesome as well... the surreal absurdity and depth of character are similarities I see.
