I was one like 2 years ago...anyways, I got over it (somehow) but I still do retain some of its traits..but I was a total serious wreck & had ppl telling me to see a mental doctor (in a good way, not saying they are looking down on me) .. but well, I am still here today but..I am still a shy & close up person, I admit sometimes I do feel depressed to the point where I wanted to suicide.

Anyways, if a person have ever been a hikikomori or have got out of the phase, they are still like infants to the society, so it's very sad & it's pretty hard for them to adapt properly & live a more confident lifestyle. I am one & been there & is still here...hopefully, in the near future, people could understand why they behave this way & ask them to seek help instead of putting them down & deem them as useless.

Wow thats just.... amazing. In a bad way of course but still it's odd. The comforts brought on by our technological advances brought some dark baggage as well. I like NHK though. And I think we all have or hikikomori moments which is okay as long as you keep it in check.

Lol, I'm similar myself. I don't bother going out weekdays for the most part because if I'm not working I need time to relax. Can't put up with people all day, everyday or I become a bit pissy. I do go out for the weekends with buddy's and such as well as mid week if someone really wants me to but otherwise I enjoy relaxing at home. We all deserve to chose how we want to live.

As for hikikomori's I have to say its not entirely healthy and I can see it being cause by some form of depression but some may simply love that type of life style. Some may lack motivation as I do(could be a mixture of anger as well, idk), however I know I don't like sitting around watching tv/anime or playing games all day. I know this because I was like it for a few months and decided it was time to move my ass.

Even at this point I can't say I'm overjoyed with life but at the very least I enjoyed it just the same as when I was a child and had no worries other then having fun. Suicide isn't something I've ever considered as I intend to live as long as possible. I guess my one motivation would be to obtain Immortality.
