NHK ni Youkoso! - Netflix

Posted by Editor on Sat 22 June 2019

Satou Tatsuhiro, 21 years old, thinks that everything that happens around him is a conspiracy. He figures out who is behind it all: The NHK, an evil secret company. Satou manages to uncover the plot of The NHK after three years of shutting himself in (and rapidly approaching the fourth). In reality, he is nothing more then a NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training), desperately in need of a cure from that ‘disease'. He wants to break out from the curse, but going out and getting a job is frightening enough for him. That is until he gets selected for a ‘project'; it is a plan to help hikikomori like him face the reality of this world.

NHK ni Youkoso! - Plot - Netflix

Around 1,000 years ago in Fairy World (妖精界 Yōsei-Kai) in the Heian era, a young prince from a noble family named Ojarumaru Sakanoue is bored of his life of privilege. He is later lured into Enma World (エンマ界 Enma-Kai) by the sound of a ukulele played by Great King Enma. Upon arriving, he steals Great King Enma's powerful scepter, which he uses in order to judge the dead. While getting chased by Great King Enma, he accidentally falls into the Moon Hole (月の穴 Tsuki no Ana), which time-warps him to modern Japan through the Full Moon Road (満月ロード Mangetsu Rōdo). The furious Great King Enma sends his three adopted oni children, Aobee, Kisuke, and Akane, who are known as the Oni Child Trio, to pursue Ojarumaru and get the scepter back. At the present time, Ojarumaru befriends a boy named Kazuma Tamura and lives with his family, thanks to his grandfather Tommy. While making many new friends and dodging the Oni Child Trio's efforts to retrieve the scepter, Ojarumaru has many adventures in Moonlight Town and encounters new things he's never seen before in his time period.
