Welcome to NHK is an inspirational and relatable anime.
26 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Genuinely amazing anime. Great art and animation, voice actors were excellent. The story was funny and inspirational, as well as relatable and painful. The only anime i've ever watched continuously for a day to get from the start to the finish, and I wasn't disappointed with the ending either. From the start to the finish I loved every moment. Such a great anime (and novel). I will be sure to tell anybody I can to watch it! I think when I am older and I come across my old list on anime's I watched years and years ago. This is one anime I will watch and love again. If you haven't read the novel either, then you definitely should! One to keep on your shelves forever!!
