About Welcome to the NHK Novel

The novel Welcome to the NHK is written by Tatsuhiko Takimoto.

Welcome to the NHK Novel follows a twenty-two-year-old college dropout and aficionado of anime porn, named Satou. And Satou thinks he knows a little secret! Believe it or not, he has stumbled upon an incredible conspiracy created by the Japanese Broadcasting Company, N.H.K. But despite fighting the good fight, Satou has become an unemployed hikikomori - a shut-in who has withdrawn from the world, until he meets Misaki, a mysterious young girl who invites him to join her special "project." Slowly, Satou comes out of his reclusive shell, and the hilarious journey of mistaken identity, Lolita complexes, and an ultimate quest to create the greatest hentai game ever, begins.

Welcome to the Novel that started it all

An important prerequisite to reading the manga and watching the anime, Tatsuhiko Takimoto's light novel Welcome to the NHK is a definite worth read. Take the opportunity to relive the story with minor differences and even challenge yourself to see the characters differently from the anime and manga. If you've neither seen the anime nor read the manga, I still recommend reading this tremendous light novel, full of dark comedy. As I' searched far and wide, the best deal for this product was here at Right Stuf Anime.

Welcome to the NHK is in my top 5 gem list. Its a story that cannot be matched if you are interested in a very weird, yet brilliant mix of comedy and depression. Dark, perverted, psycho, hilarious, and a wake-up call for many who come across this novel. Follow a 22-year old shut-in who has given up all hope at fitting in with society, his struggle against what he believes to be a conspiracy group called the N.H.K., and his attempt to slowly regain his humanity thanks to a mysterious girl he met through fate. I highly recommend the manga as well as the anime, as all three are absolute gold.

You gotta read this!!


Welcome to the NHK is the best thing. You will not regret it. Read the novel and watch the animu and if you feel hot and spicy you can also read the manga.

The Welcome to the NHK novel is really a must have. This will definitely be worth both your time and money. The about section pretty much tells it all. This story has both been adapted to a manga and an anime which are just as fantastic as this novel. Those are just as worth checking out as this novel.
