Synopsis: Shintaro Kisaragi is about to have a terrible day. After two years of being an unemployed shut-in, Shintaro Kisaragi is forced out of his room and into the wide, uncaring world by a disastrous series of events involving his computer’s keyboard and a bottle of soda. What begins as a simple errand soon spirals out of control as his luck turns from bad to worse. It starts with a hostage situation and only gets weirder from there–and it turns out Shintaro Kirasagi isn’t the only person whose life is going to be changed forever this blistering summer afternoon!

  1. Also, the synopsis is outdated, here is the final synopsis of volume 1.
    “Shintaro Kisaragi is about to have a terrible day.

    After two years of being an unemployed shut-in, Shintaro Kisaragi is forced out of his room and into the wide, uncaring world by a disastrous series of events involving his computer’s keyboard and a bottle of soda. What begins as a simple errand soon spirals out of control as his luck turns from bad to worse.

  2. The first volume (hadn’t checked the others) is not available on amazon, neither Kindle, nor paperback version. Is there a PDF version of it somewhere? I have the others, but not this one :(

    • Clicking the above links, I still see the first volume on Amazon is available (both the print and Kindle versions). I’m not sure what could be the issue, other than maybe your region doesn’t have them? I don’t know where you’re at.
