Anyone know someone in real life that is a Hikikomori or a NEET?
What are your thoughts about them?

Nope, but living in California, I doubt there would be many for me to know.

I probably know a few people who may be similar, including myself, but the U.S. economy and social setting is different from Japan's. If there was an American version on Hikikomori, I think I would be suffering from a mild case. xD

Hang on a second.
if they're a true hikamori it would be impossible to know them since they never leave their house

(well mabey not, but i've always wanted to use that image)

neet - is quite common ... in big cities. hikikomori - yeah it is possible too.

I think one of my friends is a Hikikomori. He never gets out of his house really. The only time I see him is by going to his house.

how did he became your friend..? telepathy..? hikikomoris have trouble having friends.. ( yea.. isolate yourself in a room.. what would you know about the outside world ) lol.. well.. im not into going out to places with many people and somewhat paranoid with the things around me( yea.. people that sits around in groups really freaks me out that i always think that they're going to beat me up or something.. >_> ) so maybe im becoming one.. omg.. >_>.. but i atleast go out sometimes.. really..

i guess im a neet in the part of "never leaving home".

my friends brother is like almost a complete neet.
but then he tried out basketball.....so i guess he's not too much of a neet. his team sucks though.

I am slightly reclusive but not to that extreme. Back in the days I guess Emily Dickinson was one, so it's possible
