“Being alone is best. I mean, it's true, isn't it? In the end you'll be absolutely alone; therefore, being alone is natural. If you accept that, nothing bad can happen. That's why I shut myself away in my six-mat one-room apartment.”

“No human beings, regardless of who they might be, want to look directly at their own shortcomings.”
Tatsuhiko Takimoto, Welcome to the N.H.K.

“There weren't any villains though. The world was just complicated in various ways, and there weren't any obvious villains to be found. It was excruciating.”
