Ideally to die of natural causes alone and forgotten at a reasonably old age.
I can't speak for every NEET, but my endgame is to become self employed in a way that requires as little work as possible. assuming I live longer than my relatives, anyway. (and before anyone asks, yes I have neetbux but rent by itself would take 70% of that in this area, which is not high end by any stretch of the imagination!)
To rule the world!
Live off parents until rest of family busts in with baseball bats after after their funeral
Reading and writing books devoid of narratives.
do you mean like, how to books? or fiction that somehow doesn't have a narrative? what would that second one even be like... like a slice of life anime, maybe? >>75382
I've noticed a lot of smaller places like this have some kind of dream to own a mansion or an island that everyone can escape to. I like how in the place of money or power we've replaced that dream with one where we just want to hang with bros.
I don't think I would actually want to live with anybody here... Well maybe some of the Precure posters would be alright.
Fictional, slice-of-life where the cute factor is replaced with the pity and pathetic factor or boast verbosity factor, the narrator may describe a lot from his life but stays always in the same room. Talking, doing nothing, never getting practical on the question: "When will I stop doing nothing and start acting". It's very slice-of-lifey in the sense that it doesn't get to the point, big questions get replaced by littler questions.
I was not aware books like that existed
Try The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa.
NEETs, or at least the hiki variety, have no endgame. It is just a steady existence without highs or lows. Goals and plans are for those with motivation and purpose, something that you must leave behind.
Hikkikomori are a few steps from buddha compared to normal humans. But still, they are woefully human in all the parts that count. One might even say their pursuits are hyper-normal since they live purely by want without much consession in regards to physical needs.
Were it that they were naturally drawn to scripture instead of games and media, they would be nobler monks than many.
Probably why the best programmers tend to be shut-ins
Want to teach Miyu the meaning of chastity!!
>>75377>NEEt's what is their Endgame?
i just want to be /comfy/
I have a somewhat unique experience regarding this. I spent most of my time when I was more depressed watching and reading mecha stories like gurren lagann and gunbuster, where hard work and guts were not just respected and effective, but keys to godlike power.
now that I'm out of my funk I've managed to accomplish a lot of stuff I used to think I would never have the talent for (I made my own full fledged indie game, for one), and I think I owe a lot of that to spending my time with fictional people who believed in me more than the real people around me did. I think in this case those anime really were my scripture.
