But he soon learns that these are expensive habits, and that his escapism comes at a cost he might not be willing to pay. Feeling alone, with no one to turn to, especially now that Yamazaki's got his own girl problems, Satou is at an all-time low. Where will he turn? Fates are intertwined and secrets revealed in this, the next volume of Welcome to the N.H.K.!
