I absolutely love this guy's work, but his life is so depressing. Read this stuff from Wikipedia:

"Takimoto wrote two Afterwords published in various editions of his novel. In the first afterword, dated December 2001, he stated that he was a hikikomori and was still recovering: "... the themes addressed in this story are not things of the past for me but currently active problems." In a second Afterword, dated April 2005, Takimoto admitted that he had not written "a single new story" since N.H.K. and that he was "reduced to a NEET, ... living as a parasite on the royalties from this book." He stated that he felt "completely unable to write" and "incapacitated.""

NHK is one of the greatest stories ever made. It's too bad he more or less stopped writing after that.
