Summary - English (Anilist)

Tatsuhiro Satou, a university dropout entering his fourth year of unemployment. He leads a reclusive life as a hikikomori, ultimately coming to the bizarre conclusion that this happened due to some sort of conspiracy. One day just when his life seems entirely unchanging, he meets Misaki Nakahara, a mysterious girl who claims to be able to cure Tatsuhiro of his hikikomori ways. She presents him with a contract basically outlining that once a day they would meet in the evening in a local park where Misaki would lecture to Tatsuhiro in an effort to rid him of his lifestyle. During these outings, many subjects are discussed, though they almost always pertain in some way to psychology or psychoanalysis.

Content warnings if known

Suicide and just generally mental health related topics

Why are you nominating this book: I’ve wanted to read this book for years, and having finally ordered it, I thought it would be nice to be able to discuss it with other people. Despite being a light novel, it only has one volume, meaning the club can read the whole story together, instead of potentially having an incomplete narrative from reading only one volume out of many. Besides, who doesn’t like reading books about crazy conspiracy theorists (who hopefully undergo some personal growth)?
