Yeah, 6 years running, no joke. When I was kicked out of school I shut myself away, about 4 years passed and I was finally kicked out of the house. I've now been living in a tiny apartment in Vancouver for 2 years. I don't speak to anybody, I don't associate with anybody. My income comes from the government and minimal parent hand outs (they accepted that I'm fucked), just enough for food, internet and rent, which is like 200 a month.

/jp/ is more full of short-term NEETs, rather than 'hardcore' hikikomori. They more lurk on the AnonIB board or just keep quiet about it elsewhere.

That said, I don't mind this life, it's easy and sustainable. I never intended to retire and live until I'm 85 years old and senile, so I'm having fun now.

I used to be a really bad shut-in, to the point where I was afraid to leave my room if anybody else was in the house. Roughly went like that from 15 to 20, varying levels, sometimes feeling secure enough to see family or even visitors and sometimes going terrified of being seen or heard. Spent some months in an institution which broke that up, actually managed to be almost normal for some months after that but pretty soon I went right back to being a shut-in. I've gone outside at least a couple times a week for the last two years though, doing some volunteer work past few months and some people are helping me to find education possibilities.

That's subjective because not all of us are simply lonely and seek a relationship.

I don't think it's specifically that we knew them in the past. Not for all of us, anyway. The problem is that people who you have never met usually won't try to strike up a conversation, so it's easy to avoid them. People you knew before are likely to approach you, making avoidance difficult.

The only thing that has kept me sane these past 5 years is talking to my dad and communicating on 4chan. It's fucking excruciating to not be able to talk about things I actually like without being insulted or ostracized. Whenever I finish a game I really enjoyed I have no one to talk to about it with. When I finish a VN or anime I really enjoyed I have no one to talk to about it with. I can't go up to my dad and say "Hey, ____ was really awesome, what did you think when ___ did ___? I thought that was the best part in the game".

It's frustrates me so much that I can't do this in real life, I just wanted to find people I could relate to and share opinions with. What frustrated me more is the fact that it's not even hard to find people who have typical otaku hobbies, yet I still couldn't find anyone and I still haven't. I guess this is mostly my fault because I didn't open myself up more to people.

I was a really shy and introverted kid starting from kindergarten, and for most of my school life I never said a word until I got home. I didn't make any friends until 6th grade, and then starting middle school I lost all of them; because they were normalfags and I couldn't relate or talk to them about much since they always bullied me for playing games. Now here I am, still the same. Anyway, I'm glad I found 4chan a couple years ago otherwise I really would have gone insane. If not insane, then really depressed. I desperately needed a place I could let myself out from being bottled up with these thoughts and emotions all these years.

Thank you, all of you.

I don't ever do that, even on 4chan. It seems silly to me. I mean, occasionally I'll join in a thread about something I played before and help someone, but usually, I rarely do that. I don't even post much anymore. My entire life is shaded in grey and can be described quite adequately with one word:


I don't need to talk to anyone, in person or online, and I don't feel the need to share my opinions with anyone either. Chances are, they won't care anyway, or will forget them soon after I tell them, so it's no big deal if I just don't say them to begin with.

Hearing all of these stories is very interesting.

After being kicked out of college in 2006 and unable to pay rent, I moved back with my mother and older brother. I did get a job until about a month ago... Those 3+ years had turned me into a weak example of a shut-in. I only left the house at night, sat in front of the computer all day, played vidya, even started to sleep until 2-3 o'clock pm. I had no income and rarely asked for money from anyone, but my father still thought I was in college so he would send me $100 probably once a month... I made a female friend online and we talk about animu and games and things, but for a really long time I physically looked terrible-- huge bags under my eyes, only loose-fitting clothes, ate tiny amounts. I have friends in this state that I've known from high school, and they're the only ones left. I'd like to just be alone and have no one know me, but I can't see my life without those last two friends.

My ex and I were in college at the same time, but she graduated and moved to Japan with JET and I still love her... she says I'm her best friend ever and I believe her, but I'm not doing a very good job by not speaking to her or visiting. It's just, sometimes the world feels really suffocating, and I don't want to do anything. The years since 2006 started out happy because I was free, but they downward-spiraled into what I realize now was pretty bad. I hope that with this night job I'll finally be able to afford to move away and be on my own.

I have trouble all the time when talking with people I know from earlier in my life, and I don't understand the point of a party where everyone just gets drunk together. It's stupid. I have yet to meet anyone with this same mentality. Lots of people on 4ch seem like me, which is nice, and helps with my loneliness.

A hikikomori is somebody who withdraws from society because of its pressures. Unless you're talking about hookers and ad revenue, no hiki will have a sex or a job.

You can, however, be a recluse and still do all of the above. You merely don't have any friends or obligations. This is different from being a hikikomori.

Being a hiki is more about abandoning the real world and entering your comfort zone and staying there, this usually means your room or apartment. On the other hand, a recluse or shut-in is just somebody with no friends, yet they still maintain the ability to work, attend college, or fuck whores, as you said.

Well, actually it's much easier to post on anonymous sites, but still I try not to post unless I'm very confident in what I have to say and if it somehow turns out wrong, I feel very bad for a long time.

Little more than a year for me, but I'm running out of money.
Last weekend I went off and tried to get a job at Gamestop since I saw Working!!
They weren't hiring, and I only have a GED anyways. I'm sure I'll stop wanting to get a job and go back to begging my mom as soon as Working!! is over though.

Your idea of a well-written reply is me saying "Thank you, and goodbye". That's hardly an argument.

/jp/ certainly isn't filled with non-virgins. This thread would be proof of that, even to someone who just got here.

And avoiding topics that would piss off a /jp/edo is just madness. I'm not going out of my way to be inflammatory, and as I've said before it's easy to do so. If you want a discussion, you need to have more than one viewpoint.

Okay, do yourself a favour, read these. You clearly don't have a clue what the word hikikomori means and are using it in the context of the NHK anime.

It's a much more complex thing.



And probably the most through thesis ever published on the dilemma: http://towakudai.blogs.com/Hikikomori.Research.Survey.pdf

Until then, leave this thread, this board and this website and never come back with a tripcode again. You've ruined your name for good; I wouldn't be surprised if half the board has your name filtered now. Notice how the whole thread is flaming you at this point? It's because you're a dumbass.

...your entire argument is a really terrible argument about tripbros. The kind who do this shit for attention ("like you lol") would just find your age encouraging. Thanks for the links, though. I was intending to look it up after someone said it was a legitimate government designation, instead of something that people just decided to group themselves into. Thanks for the literature.

Also, drink some tea or something. Jesus christ.

Look at the thread. The moment you started to post it turned to shit. It went from a discussion between hikis and NEETs to a shitstorm about what is a hiki and what isn't. You can say "it was inevitable" but not really, because your posts are so ignorant toward the concept that everybody assumed you were trolling.

Time for you to get a new tripcode probably, because you ruined your name now. The nice thing about 4chan is, when a tripfag says stupid shit, everybody knows to disregard everything he says. Even better we can filter your bullshit now.

I do consider myself an anime otaku, since I honestly love it and many other things (semi)related to it. I also spend most of my time doing those kinds of things.
I am not a ''hikikomori'' though, just a shut-in student.

I figured as much, but for people with social lives and varying sleep times, it's hard to know what the person is doing at a given time.

i used to be a NEET for short periods in my life. i guess now i'm what you would call a scientist in pseudo academia. you don't really have to interact with people and it pays well. if you like applied math, it's a great job. you get paid to do many things you'd do in your spare time. however, this required many years of post graduate education in math heavy fields. i'm not incredibly gifted in math, so it's a painful investment to take measure theory, complex analysis, category theory, etc.

Actually, I used to have a revolving sleep pattern. Every day would add one hour to the time at which I wake up, meaning I'd go asleep a few hours later to compensate.

I hate people, but I realized that I must deal with society if I am ever to live in it. I have my bouts of being a NEET, but Right now I have a semi steady desktop job that I have to deal with people everyday.

I have gotten used to it and I am feeling pretty good about it. I still don't have much friends besides the 4 that I met at high school. But that is fine.

I totally understand why some people could become a shut-in because as long as your parents can substain your constant life you will stay a HIKKI.

So if you truly want to get out the HIKKI life style you have to leave the support of your parents and fend for yourself.

Green, I don't think anyone was suggesting you have life easier just because you have a job/girlfriend (well, maybe one or two bitter assholes). In fact, we're clearly avoiding those things so you could say you're enduring a lot more than us (or maybe not, how the hell should I know?). At least in my case, I was just trying to point out that you can't logically be a hikkikomori if you have these things. It directly conflicts with the definition.
