(Title: hikkikomori dying out of sight)
I keep seeing documentaries like this on YouTube. why is the media so obsessed with the term?
In the short documentary, the narrator keeps saying that the social worker are saying that in the WHOLE of Japan, there are, like, 72 hikkikomoris at increased risk of dying. I feel bad for them but I think this is a VERY insignifican number. They keep throwing numbers like 72, 350 hikkikomori and I keep asking myself why would they care so much about such an insanely small number.
also, what exactly is an hikkikomori? Is it like an incel? Or a simple recluse?
At what age are you considered a recluse? Are you a recluse if you live with your family and regularly go out but don't have a job?
I'm genuinely confused at all these terms and the weird morbid curiosity hikkikomori are attracting. People obviously don't give a shhhhhhhit about them (unless when they want to appear heroicly concerned).
I also noticed they never showed a female hikkikomori. Those that mean the the term refers only to men who are recluse?
