Wow hikikomori theme like on Welcome to the NHK. I hope it will have a good presentation of characters too. Better if there's psychological immersion :) Interesting, I'll be looking forward to this movie. :D Plan to read the manga after the movie :D

Read all the MAL feeds, so it's a live action movie..... I'll go with the manga first :D

The synopsis seems interesting enough. I don't know why everyone's complimenting the art, it seems average to me, but oh well. For me I might watch it, maybe not; was never into movies that much.

It wasn't announced yet if it will be live-action or animation. Seeing the synopsis, it looks like it will be live-action imo, even though I'm hoping for an anime.
