Shintarou Kisaragi, a NEET--person "Not in Education, Employment, or Training"--has refused to leave the comfort of his room for two whole years. But Shintarou's easy and solitary life is about to take an unexpected turn when his computer crashes and he is forced to venture into the world he was happy to shut out forever...and stumbles into the middle of a hostage situation!
This is another series somewhat in the Sword Art Online style, I think, only opposite? I’m a little iffy.
Shintaro hasn’t left his room in years. He’s always on his computer, and he has a girl inside his computer who helps him. And then his computer mouse dies, so he has to venture outside the house. It’s horrible—the sun’s out, people are everywhere. And when he goes to the mall, it gets robbed, and him and everyone else are held hostage. The one time you go outside, right?
But in the meantime, he meets an interesting group of people. A group who also meets his sister around the same time, oddly enough.
This is very much the first volume in the series, and I’m not quite sure who’s who yet, but I’m intrigued. The characters have caught my interest and I want to get to know them all. It’s an interesting premise, and I’m looking forward to reading the next one and seeing where it goes.
