Kiri Komori 小森 霧

Gaming, sleeping, and drinking without leaving home were his main activities over the last five years. One day his life was changed forever when “rental oneesan” visited him.

They started communication and his heart gradually opened. It is still a mystery what she did to him exactly, but it seems that she found and encouraged some of his positive characteristics. Now he works at an office that helps people like him.

Hikikomori (ひきこもり or 引き籠もり, Hikikomori, lit. “pulling away, being confined”, i.e., “acute social withdrawal”) is a Japanese term to refer to the phenomenon of reclusive individuals who have chosen to withdraw from social life, often seeking extreme degrees of isolation and confinement due to various personal and social factors in their lives. The term hikikomori refers to both the sociological phenomenon in general as well as to individuals belonging to this societal group.
