Plot Summary: Tatsuhiro Satou is a 22-year-old NEET (Not currently engaged in Employment, Education, or Training). His life is a wreck; he is antisocial, fears going outside, and believes that there is a conspiracy involving the "NHK". One day, he meets a high school aged girl named Misaki through a chain of awkward events. She invites him to be a part of her "project", which offers an escape from his NEET lifestyle, and his life slowly begins to change.
