Do I get this right:
-this mangas big theme (in style and plot devince in first chapters and title itself) is that 2D serves as comfort zone for escapism and causes people to fail at their lifes and become hikkis.
-yet it is a manga itself, and one that supports escapism even further at that: not only does it not offer any solutions to troubled hikkis, but it takes them into a dream world where a beautiful girl magically comes out of nowhere and turns their life around.
-to make things worse, it basically calls the depressed audience scum worse than criminals/politicians/daytrader/etc and actually considers suicide (which may be a little harder to step back from for people without a gf, loving family and best friend neighbour)
-this shit got an anime adaption and aired on the same channel that the author accused of greedily exploiting and ruining lifes of japanese youths?

is that what they call irony?
>>
No, that's what they call "OP being a fucking retard".
>>
The manga had no positive escapism at all, if anything it was unrealistically cynical about life
>>
>this mangas big theme is that 2D serves as comfort zone for escapism and causes people to fail at their lifes and become hikkis.
No it isn't, I don't know what manga you read but it wasn't welcome to the NHK.
>>
And the author becomes a hikki after writing it. If there's any lesson in this at all, it's that, oh hey >>102001163
>>
>>102001071
How could someone be so wrong on so many accounts?
You didn't read the manga, or watch the anime, and worst of all, it sounds like you didn't even know about the source material novel.
>>
>>102001163
>>102001163
how am I retarded? the protagonist believed NHK wants to turn underachievers into hikkis. while there was no conspiracy behind it, it is de facto true. then the author does exactly what he accused NHK and the rest of japanese media of doing: supporting escapism.

You're mixing the author and the protagonist there.
>>
>and one that supports escapism even further at that: not only does it not offer any solutions to troubled hikkis, but it takes them into a dream world where a beautiful girl magically comes out of nowhere and turns their life around.

How did you miss the entire point of the story?
>>
>>102001379
It sounds like you think the author is the protagonist.
>>
>>102001379

How about you actually read what's going on in the story, instead of trying to force your own narrative into it?
>>
>>102001071
> Do I get this right
No. No you didn't get that right. At all.
>>
First off, if you've read the manga, you should know that Misaki is no Manic Pixie Dream girl. She's a fucking mess, and not in the cute "PLEASE HUG ME WITH YOUR BIG NEET ARMS PROTAGONIST-KUN" way she is in the anime. She's a liar, a narcissist, and above all else an abuser.
>>
>>102001632
To add onto this OP missed the part where the protagonist figures out that living as a hikkimori is really just a luxury supported by his parents.
>>
>>102001071
>yet it is a manga itself, and one that supports escapism even further at that: not only does it not offer any solutions to troubled hikkis, but it takes them into a dream world where a beautiful girl magically comes out of nowhere and turns their life around.
The manga is drastically different than the original novel. Namely they play up the girl a lot more. She actually isn't that big of a deal.
As a matter of fact, the whole point is that he betters himself despite her saying she's helping him, when she's really doing it for her own selfish reasons.

>this shit got an anime adaption and aired on the same channel that the author accused of greedily exploiting and ruining lifes of japanese youths?
Did you actually think the author seriously thought that? Are you trolling? The MC was hallucinating and if you read the novel- literally high of his ass when he said that.

>it basically calls the depressed audience scum worse than criminals/politicians/daytrader/etc and actually considers suicide (which may be a little harder to step back from for people without a gf, loving family and best friend neighbour)
Oh my god I don't even know where to start you're missing so many points at once.

OP you are stupid for the following reasons
A) Not reading the actual source material
B) Seriously misinterpreting the story this hard. Like the manga is different but not enough to excuse this.
C) You're trying way to hard to be clever and distorting the story to fit that.
>>
>>102001071
How is it even possible to miss the point by this much? Really, I'm amazed.

Are you autistic? Were you dropped on your head repeatedly as a child? Why are you so cripplingly stupid? What's your excuse?
>>
They need to teach better reading comprehension and literature analysis in school.
>>
>>102001379
>the protagonist believed NHK wants to turn underachievers into hikkis
Did you also miss out the part where the protag is mentally messed up and therefore not the most reliable of person?
>>
Can we all just agree that OP has one of the worst cases of bad reading comprehension ever seen on /a/?

Seriously OP why do you read manga and shit if you don't even understand it? I guess you just think you do.

I didn't read the manga, only the novel and watched the anime. However:
>not only does it not offer any solutions to troubled hikkis
Actually it does offer two solutions: a) take over your family business, b) take a menial manual work.
The solutions are quite japanese-conservative which is why you may not like them. They also feel hollow because the protagonist never stops being scared/hating the world, he just goes on tolerating it.

>a beautiful girl magically comes out of nowhere and turns their life around
But she doesn't really turn his life around.
